The first track ‘Aahun Aahun' opens with the sweet guitar string. It is very mesmerizing and catches our ear as soon as it starts playing. The song is a blend of Hindi and English mixture and beautifully synchronized and it is a 100 percent hit in all ways. When the song will come with the picturization then the effect will be double. It will be a treat to watch. Singers Neeraj Sridhar, Master Saleem and Suzanne set the perfect mood of the song with their youthful voice. The remixed version of the song is sure to heat up the dance floor.
The second track opens with a light hearted song ‘Chor Bazari’ by Neeraj Sridhar and Sunidhi Chauhan. It’s a peppy number and full of fun. Set in the backdrop of Delhi Chor Bazar, the song gives you a unique feel of the city. Lyric is very simple and Neeraj and Sunidhi have done full justice to the song. It’s a foot tapping number and purely funny, quite impressive. The remix track of the song sounds average not able to impress like the original.
The third track ‘Yeh Dooriyan’ touches the chord of our heart on first hearing. It gives the similar feeling like ‘Tum Se Hi’ from ‘Jab We Met’. As well assessed from the wordings, it speaks about distance and separation of the two hearts. Very impressive and sends a feeling of love, pain and separation. Well written and well sang by singer who is known for his romantic best Mohit Chauhan. After hearing, it will entice you to croon again and again as it has a gentle breeze of love.
The fourth track, ‘Ajj Din Chadheya’ by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan comes as a gentle breeze. Very peaceful and immediately connects to the soul. Lyric by Irshad is equally captivating. Purely Indian, the song starts with a small alaap. Its runs very smoothly and stays longer with us. You will fall in love with first hearing. The album continues to rule.
The fifth track goes as 'Thoda Thoda Pyar'. It’s a marriage song in the voice of Sunidhi Chauhan. It has a feel of 60’s and 70’s shaddi song. It has perfectly created the mood of a Punjabi marriage house with their unique tune and words. Total foot tapping number and the instruments of dholak and tabla were much prominent. Nothing special but sounds like any other marriage song. Here the album scores little low.
KK makes his presence felt with the sixth track of the film 'Main Kya Hoon'. It is a peppy number, very fast and full of energy. The next track that follows is ‘Twist’ by Neeraj Sridhar. It is a foot-tapping number with loads of beats and rhythm. Average to hear.
‘Love Aaj Kal’ is an album worthy buying and listening. Scores really high and includes all the ingredients to hit the chartbuster. ‘Aahun Aahun’, ‘Ajj Din Chadheya’ and Yeh Dooriyan are the gems of the album.
