Name Gourov Dasgupta may not really ring a bell. However, if we mention that he is the same man who was behind tunes like 'Dus', 'Jaaniye', 'Aaja Soniye', 'Nach Le Soniye' and 'O Maahiya' from the film Dus Kahaniyaan, it does get noticed.
After a six months wait since the release of Dus Kahaniyaan, composer Gourov Dasgupta is back with his score for Summer 2007. Though the film has taken a little longer to hit the screens (it is 2008 already and the film would be arriving in June this year) and hence in the process has delayed the arrival of the film's music as well, Gourov would be looking forward to his music making a mark yet again.
Gourov makes a good start with 'Jaaniye Teri Ankhoke Ye Roshani' which comes with a poetic feel to it, courtesy relative newcomer Ujjayinee Roy who writes as well as sings this romantic number. While Gourov does well in mixing Western and Indian sounds in this number which is quite pleasant to hear and comes easy on ears, 'Jaaniye' does require more than just a couple of hearing to be grasped due to the multiple layers it carries. A song which has an Indi-pop flavor to it, it also comes in a slow (though not sad) version which in fact goes a step ahead and justifying it's Indi-pop genre.
