Ek Ajnabee starts out with ‘Mama Told Me,’ a fast paced, English-mixed-with-Hindi kind of a song. The beats used in the song by Vishal-Shekhar are extremely enthusiastic. One can be sure to get to hear this fast-beat number in all leading clubs. The half English, half Hindi lyrics by Vishaal Dadlani are well suited to the music and beats adding to the exciting feel of the song. Sukhwinder Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan’s voices are unmatchable for this particular track. Vishaal Dadlani is great in the background with his heavy voice and cool accent. Overall, another song for the dance floor that will definitely have you dancing on your feet.
After a fast paced number is ‘Barf Khushi Hai,’ a mellow and slow song that will give your feet a rest and get your mind running. This track narrates the story and character of Mr. Bachchan in the film. The ‘Ek Ajnabee’ theme of words is carried throughout the song. Kailash Kher shows off his amazing vocal skills once again with Jaideep Sahni’s beautiful words that should be watched out for. The song is surely composed for the background as we might see Big B on the screen. A soft, melodious number beautifully sung.
Next up is ‘Tere Liye.’ A track with a mixture of fast beats and mellow music, it has a fun and poignant feeling to it. The song is speculated to be about Amitabh Bachchan and the girl he is trying to guard. One can almost visualize Amitji and the girl playing along as the song proceeds. This number is truly special for Kunal Ganjawala, as he sings with full enthusiasm for Mr. Bachchan. A flashy yet smooth song, which will positively grow on you as you listen to it more and more.
‘They Don’t Know’ begins with English words with foot tapping music. Yes, this is the much talked about track featuring Sanjay Dutt. This track is supposed to be used as a promotional item for the movie. It is planned to be shown in the titles just like in some of the other movies such as ‘Bunty Aur Babli’ and ‘Dus’. Kunal Ganjawala’s versatility shows through this song as he changes his voice to make it rough so it goes with the theme of the song. Lalit Tiwari lyrics talk about the many immoral and criminal acts committed in the world [or in the movie]. The words would remind one of ‘Ganda Hai Par Dhanda Hai’ from Company due to the similar theme. A loud, full-of-beats song with some good lyrics. ‘Blast U Between Ur Eyes - Remix’ is a more thrilling version of ‘They Don’t Know.’
“Soniye” follows ‘They don’t Know’ in the album. It’s a combination of ‘Mahi ve’ from Kal Ho Na Ho and ‘Chham Se’ from Dus with beats reflecting bhangra and western style. There is a teasing as well as a celebration feel to the song. Sunidhi Chauhan and KK add to the rocking experience with their energetic voices. ‘Soniye - Mix n Match Remix’ is a faster, remixed version of ‘Soniye’ with a couple of extra music pieces. A pure festive song!
‘Stranger On The Prowl’ is a background score with a haunting feel to it. In ways, it reminds one of the thrilling experience of the background music in ‘Kaal.’ Shilpa Rao’s voice sounds great as it blends in very nicely with the music. An enthralling background score.
Ek Ajnabee, although an action film, promises good music. An all-rounder album with all types of song, Ek Ajnabee should reach to the top of music charts soon. For all kinds of moods and beats, buy Ek Ajnabee CD.
