Album Review
-Not Bad
By Usha Lakra

Audiences know what to expect from a Vishesh Films movie. Over the last two decades they have given some of the best musical hits. ‘Raaz- The Mystery Continues’, tentatively a sequel to ‘Raaz’, will not disappoint music lovers, though the album is not in the same league as the Bhatts’ past hit albums like ‘Jannat’, ‘Kalyug’ or ‘Zeher’.

The movie, being directed by Mohit Suri, has a line of talented composers for the album – Raju Singh, Sharib-Toshi, Gourov Dasgupta and Pranay M Rijia. Lyrics are penned by their favourite Sayeed Qadri along with Kumaar.

Bandaa Re
The track is a blend of rock music with realistic lyrics. Composed by Gourov Dasgupta, using Saint Kabir words with Bhagvad Gita shlokas, this song is very unusual for a Mahesh Bhatt film. The track can also remind you of a song like ‘Bande’ from ‘Black Friday’. The song has a brooding effect just like the movie’s theme and is vocalized with great energy by Krishna S.

Kaisa Yeh Raaz Hai
This song by Pranay M Rijia appears to be composed in the mood of ‘Yahan pe sab Shanti hai’ track from ‘Raaz’. But the song with quizzical notes fails to evoke that serious and intense mood. Kay Kay has done an average job of rendering this song.

Maahi
This track is the main attraction of the album and sounds like a typical Vishesh Films’ song. This Sharib and Toshi rendition is a forceful number. Kangana is looking immaculate in the picturisation and the song is an apt choice for the film’s promotion.

It’s another version ‘Rock with me’ is more of a filler in the album, but proves to be a good track for disc goers and club-hoppers.

O Jaana
You can be forgiven for thinking that this is a Pritam composition. But it is Raju Singh who takes the credit for this party number with average lyrics. Kay Kay expectedly sings the song with required punch and energy.
The remix version ‘Dance with me’ has a club-lounge kinda feel.

Soniyo
This is a mellow track but not that mellifluous. A nice rendition by Sonu Nigam, quite an expert in singing such numbers, while complementing him is the voice of Shreya Ghosal, and English lines are sung by Neeraj Shridhar. The song has serene, balmy feel. This song is best till now by Raju Singh.

Soniyo - From The Heart
Krishna S. wields the microphone with élan and gives the song a different mood. The song is set to a melodious scale and you will be mesmerized by the use of mouth organ in the music.

Well, the entire album is not that dramatic like the movie sounds, neither has it the expected spooky effect. But it offers a good compilation for music lovers. And to compare Raaz-TMC with Nadeem Shravan’s ‘Raaz’ is inevitable. But this album will not disappoint, instead will leave you entertained just like the other albums from the Bhatt camp.
