'Kites' directed by Anurag Basu is Hrithik Roshan's latest film as actor. Coming from his home production(under his dad Rakesh Roshan), the music is composed by his uncle Rajesh Roshan. Comprising of 5 original tracks and 4 remixes, the soundtrack delivers what it intended to.
K.K is certainly the powerhouse of the album and he opens the album with 'Zindagi Do Pal Ki'- a rock love ballad that is very pleasant to the ears. The song is a blend between rock and commercial indian music and Rajesh Roshan does find a fine balance between the two. The lyrics are well written and enhances the listening experience, but its Mr Kay Kay who excels and how!
If you thought K.K. was good in Zindagi Do Pal Ki, wait till 'Dil Kyun Yeh Mera'. K.K. is simply brilliant! Dil Kyun Yeh Mera is slower, more soulful and my favorite from the album. The lyrics are beautiful and the composition carries a lot of innocence and charm. Play this on repeat mode and I guarantee you won't get tired of this track!
Vishal Dadhlani and Suraj Jagan do what they do best with 'Tum Bhi Ho Wahi'. This song belongs closer to rock, but somehow manages to create as much impact as the previous tracks. The song is decent enough but somehow manages to irritate me.
'Kites in the sky' brings Hrithik Roshan behind the mike. Accompanied by female singer Suzanne D'Mello, this track is more suited to the world music genre that you get to hear in the background of many international romantic films. A magical blend of spanish and english, this will look even better on screen. Perfect for a candle light dinner or a slow dance!
'Fire' by Anuradh Bola and Anushka Manchanda is more of an instrumental piece but has some vocals put into it. The music sounds very international and credit must go to Rajesh Roshan for reinventing himself. Fire comes in an english version later in the album which is far better and creates a much longer impact in your mind.
The album ends with the remixed versions, which are aimed at the dance floors/parties.
Kites is a winner. It probably doesn't boast of a soundtrack that will be remembered after a decade or so, but it does hold enough merit for people to remember it for a year or two.
