By now, it's a known fact that the musical trio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy has composed the music of Karan Johar's Kabhie Alvida Na Kehna. When it's a combination of Karan Johar and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, the expectations from the music of the film are sky high.
Ehsaan is more than happy with the positive review. "I think it's brilliant. We were quite disheartened on Sunday when some websites in London said that it's the worst album they have ever heard. And they wrote this without even listening to the album. It's good to know that the first review is so good!" When asked if he believes that this film will surpass the stupendous success of Bunty Aur Babli, Ehsaan says, "I don't want to compare the two albums. A song like Kajra Re was magic that happened. We had never planned it. All three of us along with Karan Johar have worked very hard on this album. We hope it does well."
Loy, on the other hand had a different take, altogether. "For me, it does not make a difference whether someone gives my music a one star or five star rating. I won't complain about either! The audience will finally decide. After all, a critic is only one person. I believe that one man's food if another man's poison. There are so many songs I like, which others might not like!" Like Ehsaan, he too believes that they have given their best. "We have tried to bring new values to the album. If it does not work, we will have to try something else, next time!"
The third person of the trio, Shankar was unavailable for comment. While Ehsaan's favorite tracks from the album are Mitwa and the title track, Loy's favorite is Mitwa. With these talented artists along with their team giving their best shot, now it's only up to the audience to make or break this album.
