First quarter has passed by on a good note with number of music albums turning out to be success. But this summer is soon going to be a turning point with a remarkable number of biggies coming one after another. Everyone from Aditya Chopra to Karan Johar to Sooraj Barjatya to Ashutosh Gowarikar to Abbas Mustan to Sanjay Leela Bhansali to Mahesh Bhatt to Sajid Nadiadwala to Farhan Akhtar to Rakesh Roshan are coming up with their products...the list is simply endless! Just a few days back it was the music of Fanaa that hit the stands and a couple of days from now Rajesh Roshan's much anticipated score from Krrish will arrive too.

At IndiaFM, we bring you an EXCLSUIVE PREVIEW of the film's music that lives up to all the expectations one has from a Rajesh Roshan score. Melodious, soulful, simple and belonging to the genre that appeals across the nation, the music from KRRISH has seems to be another winner in the making!

Shreya Ghoshal, who has fast become a favorite amongst the composers looking for a sweet'n'simple voice, sings as many as three out of five prime tracks in the album - 'Pyaar Ki Ek Kahani', 'Koi Tumsa Nahin' and 'Chori Chori Chupke Chupke'. Melodious to the core, Sonu Nigam's 'Pyaar Ki Ek Kahani' is undoubtedly one of the best rendered songs of Sonu after the brilliance he showed in the title song of Kal Ho Naa Ho. Along with him, Shreya Ghoshal easily takes the same route as Alka Yagnik does in her romantic numbers and comes quite close to her in terms of class, quality and style. It's time for melody to continue making its presence felt in 'Koi Tumsa Nahin', again a duet by Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal. For anyone who has been following Hindi music for last three decades, it won't require him/her to even look at the credits and still attribute the song to Rajesh Roshan. A trademark simple number with ear friendly musical arrangements set on a strong Indian base, it is a good fusion of 'geet' and 'ghazal' that makes it second good song in succession.

Udit Narayan comes on the scene [for the first and the only time] in the album with 'Chori Chori Chupke Chupke' that fits well with the 'hill station' setting of the movie, as far as portions shot in India are concerned. A song based on 'pahadi' music that comes to you like a cool breeze, one just falls in love with the music by Rajesh Roshan. Third song in a row that is completely based on 'hindustani' music with zero western influences to it, 'Chori Chori' is as simple as it gets, both in terms of music and lyrics. Though Udit Narayan [a good choice for the song] and Shreya Ghoshal [extremely competent] do quite well behind the mike, it is Rajesh Roshan who is THE person who should be attributed for making it extremely beautiful in sound and feel!

The funk of 'It's Magic [Koi...Mil Gaya]' coming close to the musical arrangement of 'Le Gayi Le Gayi [Dil To Paagal Hai]' - that's the way to describe 'Dil Na Diya'. But unlike numerous other numbers where inspiration comes quite close to copying, 'Dil Na Diya' stays away from the temptation and maintains an identity of its own. A fast dance track that is tailor-made for Hrithik to demonstrate his dancing prowess, it is for the first time where one can see some western influences. Still the song remains firmly rooted to melody with Kunal Ganjawala coming up with yet another spirited rendition.

Rafakat Ali Khan's 'Main Hoon Woh Aasmaan' appears to be based on the superhuman character of Krrish due to a haunting feel of the tune. This assumption is more or less confirmed as the song moves on to enter into the world of mystic! A situational theme song that has Alka Yagnik giving company to Rafakat Ali Khan, it moves at en extremely slow pace and is somewhat unconventional when it comes to a typical Bollywood score.

Apart from these five numbers, there are also two remixes in the form of 'Big Band Mix' of 'Koi Tumsa Nahin' and 'A Mystic Love Mix' of 'Main Hoon Woh Aasman' but more about them in the DETAILED REVIEW.

A musical score that has all in it to be added to your already-piling-up-collection in 2006, the music album of Krrish releases this weekend.
