Karle Pyaar Karle Music Review: Turns Better With Every Song
The trend of multiple music composers continues. It was seen in Aashiqui 2 earlier this year. Then very recently it was the case with Yaariyan as well. Now for Karle Pyaar Karle, Suneel Darshan - who has largely worked with Nadeem Shravan for some of his best music - ropes in Rayyan Ameen, Rashid Khan, Prashant Singh, Mumzy and Meet Bros Anjjan while roping himself in as well. The story is repeated with lyricists too, what with Rashid Khan, Shakeel Azmi, Kumaar, Suneel Darshan, Yusuf Khan and Mumzy stepping in.
Frankly, the manner in which the title song Karle Pyaar Karle begins, it turns out to be an ordinary outing. The music is old school and one is taken back to the 90s. Even though Benny Dayal, Palak Muchhal and Monali Thakur come together for this number and the music too has an energetic appeal to it, one does hunt for that something special in a first ever song for a debutant.
Thankfully that does happen immediately after with the man-of-the-moment, Arijit Singh, coming to the scene for Teri Saanson Mein. Reminding of the kind of mood that was created by Laapata for Ek Tha Tiger, this melodious love song may have clichéd lyrics but has the kind of flow which makes it worthy enough for a repeat hearing. Palak Muchhal does well in coming along with Arijit behind the mike and her voice fits in just well for a teenager. A good romantic number.
There is some dhoom dhadaka that happens soon after with O Darling. In the very first hearing, there is a question of ‘is-this-really-believable’ that comes in since the lyrics are as chalu as they get. In fact one is taken right back into the 90s where Govinda revelled in such numbers. Credit it to Prashant, Amit Mishra and Shasha though who sing this one with so much conviction that you don't have a choice but to actually give this one a chance. As it happens, the song soon starts growing on you and one starts drawing parallels with many such numbers that Pritam has composed for the likes of Ranbir and Shahid in recent times.
For those hunting for something far classier in appeal, there is Javed Ali's Mutasir that comes in next. The singer does well in bringing certain 'thehrav' to the album after a vociferous O Darling. Though the song could have done better with an added punch in the arrangements, hence being more energetic in appeal, 'Mutasir' still fits in well as a quintessential love song that is expected in a romantic musical like Karle Pyaar Karle.
Meanwhile Arijit returns on the scene, albeit in a different avtar, with Tanhaai. The song has a haunting beginning to it and once can sense a rather tense mood for the protagonists while this one plays in the film. Arijit modulates his voice drastically and gets into a Pakistani pop mode with Tanhaai, hence giving it the kind of edge which lends a feel of 'now-what's-that' to begin with, only to make one warm up to it after a couple of more hearing. Notwithstanding the slight similarities with Nadeem-Sharavan's Miloge Jab Haan, Baarish Hogi [Balmaa], this one does manage to hold on its own after a while.
With the album managing to turn better with every song, it is time for new singers Mumzy Stranger and Natasha to come on board for Kurbaan. A lounge number which has a Punjabi base to it, this one actually lends an altogether different flavour to Karle Pyaar Karle. In fact at this point in time one starts wondering if this is the same album which had actually started with a rather conventional title track! With English interspersions lending an additional edge, Kurbaan does well as a situational outing.
Last to arrive is Soni Soni Akkha Nu which has yet another set of newcomers, Rayyan and Tamara, coming together behind the mike. By this time, Karle Pyaar Karle manages to find its own identity and this is what is evidenced in the kind of sound that 'Soni Soni' carries as well. In fact with its core hook of Karle Pyaar Karle, this one could well have been the one used for the film's promotion. Well, one just feels that perhaps the makers are holding on to this one for the very end and there would a video around this song eventually.
Though the soundtrack of Karle Pyaar Karle starts on an ordinary note, it gathers stream with every passing song, especially when it comes to a couple of songs by Arijit (Teri Saanson Mein, Tanhaai) as well as the concluding tracks Kurbaan and 'Soni Soni'. With rest of the songs chipping in reasonably well too, Karle Pyaar Karle carries decent enough ammunition to keep the soundtrack alive and kicking.
