There are quite a few reasons to expect good music from
Force. First and foremost Vipul Shah has a good track
record when it comes to music - Action Replayy, Namastey
London, Waqt and Aankhen are a testimony of that.
Also, Force is a remake of Tamil hit Kakka Kakka
which again had superb music. Moreover, composer Harris
Jayaraj's music of Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein is
played even a decade after it was heard first. With Javed
Akhtar joining as a lyricist, you do have good expectations
from the soundtrack here.
It's a terrific start for Force with 'Khwabon
Khwabon' with the opening track. A redone version of the
same number which had become hugely popular in Kakka Kakka
as well, this one carries a stronger punch to it with Kay Kay
and Suchitra coming together well to create the kind of sound
that has an international appeal to it. A love song that could
as well find itself in a dance floor zone, 'Khwabon Khwabon'
is just the chartbuster that John Abraham could well have been
looking for, especially after his way too subtle outing in last
year's Jhootha Hi Sahi.
Bombay Jayashree, whose rendition in 'Zara Zara' (RHTDM)
stays on to be a mighty popular number across the country till
date, sounds way too different in 'Chahoon Bhi'
but effective nevertheless. This Harris Jayaraj has a
quintessential South sound to it and in fact almost enters A.R,
Rahman zone. However, by no means is that a deterrent as the
love song not just flows smoothly but is also extremely easy on
ears. To add to this, Javed Akhtar's poetry only makes this
romantic number further special. With Karthik joining much
later, 'Chahoon Bhi' may not be an instant chartbuster
but has potential to enjoy a much greater shelf life.
There is a sudden shift in proceedings though with Mahua singing
'Dum Hai To Aaja'. Created by guest composer Lalit
Pandit, this one appears to be set in a club or a villain's den
and has a thump to it that starts making an impression after the
song has been heard four-five times. Not the kind of number that
one associates with a Vipul Shah film, this one comes across as
an item number with a Mission Impossible interlude that
adds on to the intrigue factor. One does expect this situational
number to be adding on to the film's narrative.
Thankfully Force comes back to the basics and reverts
with the kind of music that one was expecting from the
soundtrack. 'Main Chali' is the romantic number to
arrive and this one stands right up there with 'Khwabon
Khwabon' when it comes to making a thumping impact. Yes,
this one too has a Tamil flavour to it and one actually laps it
up with both hands because an unexplored sound is always
welcome. A mix of melody and rhythm makes this Naresh Iyer and
Shreya Goshal number good enough to keep your attention on
screen. Also, with the fusion of fire (John) and ice (Genelia),
'Main Chali' should make for a good combination.
Last to arrive is 'Dil Ki Hai Tamanna' which is a
love ballad in the offering and follows a mood similar to that
of 'Chahoon Bhi'. With Vijay Prakash, Shalini Singh and
Neha Bhasin coming together, this may well have been a Valentine
special picturised on campus youngsters. A song which seemingly
appears in a situation where the lead pair is just about trying
to know each other and becoming comfortable in each other's
company, 'Dil Ki Hai Tamanna' could have found a
comfortable inclusion into a quintessential romantic
Force delivers as promised and turns out to be an
impressive soundtrack. While 'Khwabon Khwabon' was
anyways expected to be the USP of the soundtrack, 'Main Chali'
turns out to be another number that works quite well for the
soundtrack. 'Dil Ki Hai Tamanna' and 'Chahoon Bhi'
aren't the kind of songs that you start humming around any time;
however play them on and they can be expected to create a
soothing outing. As for 'Dum Hai To Aaja', it would all
boil down to how it is picturised. Overall, an album that has a
potential to turn much bigger if the film too turns out to be a
