Short of expectations - The My Name Is Khan Music Review

By Usha Lakra
Rating: 3/5

The wait is going to be over. The Shahrukh Khan and Kajol starrer My Name Is Khan will release soon. Great expectations are being attached not just to the film, but also its music. After all it’s a film by Karan Johar, who is known for including soulful tunes in his flicks.

So, Karan along with music composers Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and writer-turned-lyricist Niranjan Iyengar have come up with the songs of ‘My Name Is Khan’.

Richa Sharma breaks into the song Sajda, indeed her career’s best. The track is captivating and easily manages to sway you by its sheer verve. The song not only belongs to Richa but also to Rahat Fateh Ali Khan who in his sufiana andaz touches a few heart-rending notes. And then there is singer-composer Shankar Mahadevan balancing the higher pitch of the other two singers. The song deserves a place in your personal collection.

After ‘Sajda’, it’s ‘Khuda’. Noor-E-Khuda appears a situational track in the voice of singers Shreya Ghosal, Adnan Sami and Shankar Mahadevan. Talking about the song, it’s a fine fusion with a bit western, sufi and bhakti elements. The track, mainly set on the guitar and tabla, is not only balmy but stirs you up. Though not typical, the number bears a clear stamp of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.

‘Eyes’, they say, ‘are the windows to your soul’ and very deservedly the optical sensory organ often gets lot of attention and praise in Bollywood songs. Tere Naina, thus, is no different. However, the song lacks good lyrics, but continues to add to the rhythm of the album. A semi qawwali, this song doesn’t have much to offer.

After listening to Allah Rahem which is not a bad song, one might feel the album is getting a bit monotonous. Again the same tabla-dholak beats, but ‘Allah Rahem’ by Rashid Khan is an intriguing piece and the holy chants Maula hi Rahem keeps resonating in your mind. Worth listening if you are in a sombre mood.

Then comes the ‘My Name Is Khan’ theme music. I liked this instrumental piece; it tickles the senses, is captivating and doesn’t sound overtly sensitive.

It’s not, Rang De Basanti but Rang De Aman Se Aasman, the last song of the album, is a major let-down. Why so? Well, it clearly has a lot of similarities with the song Mitwa from Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna; in fact, sounds like ‘Mitwa Part 2’.

Pakistani band Strings have done an above average job in My Name Is Khan theme song that haunts with its somber music.

Well, apart from ‘Sajda’, no other song truly puts you under a spell. And come to think of it, the album belongs to a movie by Karan Johar. The film might storm the silver screens but can’t say the same about the music. The tracks may suit the situations in the movie but fail to lure us, the music buffs.

Not a bang-up job.
