Hooked on to KANK

Talk about acronyms..and KANK means... Kabhie Alvida Na Kehna, the 4th magnum Opus of Karan Johar's rich family Opera type movies.The music released a month back and after I purchased the Audio CD, I have spent more time listening to it,than any other track.The obsessiveness to hear the tracks are similar to the experience I had when SWADES released. It comes from the trio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, who previously helmed the popular score for Johar's Kal Ho Naa Ho.



The music is delightful showing shades of Karan Johar's previous movies and Shankar Ehsan and Loy's music .The tender and judicious play of flute and piano lends a majestic and gentle touch to tracks that are poignant in nature. The album opens with the title track -- soulful,melodramatic, melancholic, and truly reflective of a KJ film. Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna is touching as it keeps getting back at you just as the title track of KHNH did.If there was one track you would want to form a mental picture of the movie,I guess the title track leads the pack.

Next up , the dazzling vibes of Mitwa seems amazingly similar to the fusion of the loud genre of Euphoria's Mairi and the Pakistani group Junoon's Sayonee. The Fuzon vocalist Shafqat Amanat Ali, Shankar Mahadevan and Caralisa's voices with Javed Akhtar's beatiful lyrics results in wonderful, rousing music. The Remix version of the song seems zippy,but gets lost and pales in the shadow of the original MITWA. If you were looking at some adrenalin pumping numbers ,swaying tio the same beat of a "Koi Kahe " (DCH) and "Its the time to Disco"(KHNH)"Where's The Party Tonight" simply rocks. Its funky and infectious beats have made me play this song in an infinite loop throughout the day. .


The other songs..umm....I havent yet analysed it, as I hardly seem to go past track 3... (Where's the party Tonight")
