Fanaa – Adieu by Jatin-Lalit

Fanaa – in urdu means “destroyed”. Is it a mere co-incidence that this movie did infact bring to fore-closure the successful partnership between Jatin-Lalit, one of the most promising and successful duo of Bollywood. But indeed, they have parted with a huge aplomb! The songs of Fanaa, are anything but forgettable and insipid! A Top Scorer all the way! The lyrics by Prasoon Joshi breathe a fresh air!
    1. Chand Sifarish Jo Karta :- Sung by Shaan and Kailash Kher is my topper! Shaan’s playful and happy voice works wonders for this song! It fills the air with an abandon that is expressed even in its lyrics.

    2. Mere Haath Mein :- Sung by Sonu Nigam, Sunidhi Chauhan, Aamir Khan, and Kajol. Music, lyrics, the seasoning of some couplets in the voice of Kajol, and Aamir, circumvented wonderfully by the voices of Sonu Nigam, and Sunidhi Chauhan! Does one need more reasons to love this song?

      Rone de aaj humko do aankhen sujaane de baahon mein lele aur khud ko bheeg jaane de hai jo seene mein kaid dariya woh choot jaayega hai jo itna dard ke tera daaman bheeg jaayega“!!

    3. Des Rangila :- Sung by Mahalaxmi Iyer. Yash Raj films have somehow made it a signature to include a song to glorify the motherland! The relevance of the same is something that I don’t really want to get into. I gave it up soon after Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gam! To say of the song by itself, well, to put it simply, its good ofcourse! Some very thoughtful lines makes it worth a listen.

    4. Yeh saazish hai boondon ki :- Sung by Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan. Sunidhi Chauhan’s voice being so soft and romantic is something that I am getting used to off late! If anything, her talent is made of ample use in this movie! The lyrics are really different than the ones usually featured in romantic numbers! Something that one may, as a matter of fact say, “is different”!!

    5. Chanda chamke cham cham :- Sung by Babul Supriyo, Mahalaxmi Iyer, Aamir Khan, Kajol, and Master Akshay Bhagwat. An absolutely sweet song replete with tongue twisters! Very playful, one can for sure make out the ample fun all the singers may have had while singing this song!
      In summation, its worth the moolah one pays to obtain the CD! A must in the collection not just because it is the final presentation by the combo, but also as it is a magically brewed potion of music with just the right combition of lyricist, singers, and music! A rather rare phenomenon these days!

    Yeh saazish hain boondon ki, turns out to be a visual treat as well, courtesy Ravi KC’s camera that paints poetry on screen. If only the film was even half as interesting as the songs!! Ufff…
