Film:Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?
Music Directors: Pritam Chakraborty and Amit Mishra
Lyricist: Irshad Kamil
Singers: Raghubir Yadav, Ajay Jhingran, Rajneesh, Amit Mishra and Sukhwinder Singh;
The soundtrack of Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?, which stars Ajay Devgn and Konkana Sen Sharma, sounds more like a devotional album with three of the five songs being in praise of the almighty.
The album contains five originals and one remix. Aaja aaja crooned by Raghubir Yadav, Ajay Jhingran and Rajneesh, is an amalgamation of folk influences with western orchestration. The fast-paced number is more of a situational track than something that can be hummed.
The song also has a re-mixed version, which offers nothing great and is average. Next is the title track of the film, where Amit Mishra steps in as composer and singer. This is the song currently doing the rounds of various TV channels. Trying to be funny with its lyrics and the way the vocals are presented, the song is a one-time hear. It's an ordinary number with no retention value.
Up next is Dohay. Sung by Amit Mishra again, it is a soft version of poems and couplets written by well-known poets. Then there is Jyoti jalaile, a devotional version of the hit item song Beedi jalaile from the film Omkara. This version too is sung by Sukhwinder Singh. The song is sung in praise of goddess Durga.
Finally, we have another religious offering in the guise of Sukh Karta, an offering to Lord Ganesh. This one too has Amit Mishra behind the mike.
On the whole, there is nothing much for music buffs in the album. The soundtrack is situational and will not boast of any chartbusters. The songs are very unlike those created by Pritam earlier.
