Didn't expect this to have any thing drastically different, as it was known that most songs would come from an earlier ARR film Rhythm. Nachle - Daler Mehndi for the first time singing for ARR - seemed notable mostly for Mehndi's robust singing voice. I've never really fancied the original of Uff Ho Jalta hai, the same for this Asha number. Paigham stands up pretty well with the crossover lyrics, I thought the line jii karta hai... fitted the meter extremely well. The three new songs provoked mixed reactions. I liked parts of Sadiyaa.n, mainly the opening and Hariharan's part. Found the female solo and Udit Narayan's portion quite dull. For some reason, reviewers have been unhappy with Rozaana and Shehezaade, while for me, these were the two I kept coming back for. Rozaana is the first cheerleader-situation song I've heard (a first for Indian movies?) and seems to fit it well. The choice of now-defunct pop group Viva! for the song is apt, for they bring the right blend of cohesive voices required. It was rousing and get-up-and-go, which is what you'd want a song of that nature to be. Shehezaade reminded me a lot of the arrangement from the Bombay Dreams version of Shakalaka Baby. This one seems to be a guys-in-a-car-on-a-dare theme. I found the scatting decent and the mood upbeat and very western.
All in all, nothing pathbreaking, but definitely passable.
