दिल तो बच्चा है जी (इश्क़िया)
dil to bachchaa hai jii (Ishqiya)

विशाल भारद्वाज
Vishal Bharadwaj
गुलज़ार
Gulzar
राहत फ़तेह अली ख़ान
Rahat Fateh Ali Khan
Everything comes together here: an unexpected situation, great singing, lyrics that couldn't get any better, and a simple composition that is just about perfect. -Ramanand
 
दशक के सबसे उम्मीद भरे गीतों में. थमा सा, रुका सा. राजकपूर के ज़मानों की याद दिलाता. गुलज़ार अपने सर्वोत्कृष्ट खिलंदड़ अंदाज़ में और विशाल अपने minimalist music के साथ उसे उभारते हुए. राहत भी एकदम सही जगह पॉज़ लेते हैं और सही जगह ठुमका. Simple yet the best! -मिहिर
 
The best of the year! Rahat again! -Arun
 
Tops 'em all. The song is awesome in a very twisted sort of a way. I love the picturization and the lyrics. Love the rhythm and the middle eastern, east European base; the excellent rendition; and the fact that it is not a "typical" Rahat song and yet he has come out so gallant. -Sowmya
  
Simply delightful all around. -Shalini
 
Inspired by Ravel's Bolero. Lovely use of accordian. Strong gypsy/eastern european style is beautifully woven in. Rahat's singing is controlled, which provides a nice fusion and contrast. Use of Pizz. Strings introduces a orchestra-ic feel which probably was not necessary, but whavever. -Pranav
 
If Vishal+Gulzar=Win, Vishal+Gulzar+Rahat=almost Perfect! Everything is great about this song: the tune, the arrangement, the lyrics, the singing. दिल तोबच्चा है”? How does he think these metaphors up! -UVR
 
Fabulous singing, lyrics and music. A song that'll remain on your playlist for days. My most favourite song of the year. -Gajendra
 
Best of the movie! -Neha
 
Wish I can give a 6 or 10 to the lyrics - outstanding narration of the whimsical wishing of the aged mind. An excellent infusion of gypsy into a typical Indian folk - very seamless. Very reminiscent of an old SJ song - not just for the accordian. -Shashi
 
The retro ambience, magical RFAK, Gulzar saab's naughty but innocent lyrics and the way it's been used in the film - Superb! Played it the most last year! -Pavan
 
Not great by Gulzar and Vishal's standards, yet one of the best songs of the year. -Amarendra

Raghuveer Yadav, Brij Mandal, Bhadwai
One from the heart - and very relavent. We have lost the art of folk music used to narrate the day to day realities. The song might be considered offbeat but is no less competent in terms of singing, verse and composition. -Shashi
 
WAAH!! -Neha
 
Love the agrarian feel that this song offers. I like Raghuveer Yadav's unrefined voice, and the picturization is simply superb. -Sowmya
 
I'm probably overrating this, but its rawness was such a relief from all the other super smooth songs of the year. -Shalini
 
Mr. Yadav is great in this song. -UVR

Wow!!! -Arun
 
What a great addition to the genre of the motivational song! -Ramanand
 
Folk rock! Loved it. -Shalini
 
This one is more inspirational - the rock-piano infusion works nice. -Shashi
 
Loved it. Amit Trivedi must be a master of these type of song at present! Starts off completely folk-ish and just takes you apart in ecstacy when it goes into the rock. Even the piano and other counters are mind-blowing! Then he introduces the rabaab style middle eastern guitar! Hats off! -Pranav
 
A lead voice barely in sur, a backing voice doing pseudo classical harkats. And use of words purely for their phonetic value. Pretentious. -Vibhendu

des meraa (Peepli Live)

इंडियन ओशन
Indian Ocean
संजीव शर्मा, स्वानंद किरकिरे
Sanjeev Sharma, Swanand Kirkire
इंडियन ओशन
Indian Ocean
Very Bhatiyaali - the rhythm is so reminiscent of 1942. What redeems the song is the originality - the tabla player, the spirited singers of the band, the punch in the lyrics and of course the rock/jazz infusions - this song works…of course it also reminds one of Phir Dhoom and Dhoom Pichak. -Shashi
 
Indian Ocean hits the mark! -UVR
 
Trademark Indian Ocean piece, nicely reused here. -Ramanand
 
"रंग रगीला परजातंतर" - साल की सर्वश्रेष्ठ पंक्ति. -मिहिर
 
All songs from this movie were outstanding just because they were not over-produced!!!! Needed the folk situation, and you got that. Lyrics are very topical as well. -Pranav

अब मुझे कोई इंतज़ार कहाँ (इश्क़िया)
ab mujhe koii i.ntazaar kahaa.N (Ishqiya)

विशाल भारद्वाज
Vishal Bharadwaj
गुलज़ार
Gulzar
रेखा भारद्वाज
Rekha Bhardwaj
Sublime! -Arun
 
Astounding singing. Music - almost unplugged, the lyrics depict the thirst of the hopeless. -Shashi
 
Rekha, though I like her a lot, should work on her enunciations. -Neha
 
What a song. Jazz rhythm, loungy feel, amazing guitar, piano, music bells, bass and RB's voice - just mesmerizing. There are places where she is a bit pitchy but that adds a raw beauty to the song. Auto-tuning it would have killed the song. In fact, very little reverb (almost non-existent) and no delay in the vocal is so essential for the feel of this song. In short - Perfect! Just my kind of song. -Pranav
 
गिटार का इस्तेमाल देखें. और रेखा की आवाज़ में शास्त्रीय संगीत सी पवित्रता भी. -मिहिर
 
Rekha is spell binding in this song. Rustic, soft, and wonderful lyrics. -Sowmya
 
Vishal is one of the very few composers who really “gets” Gulzar. His tune for these words (“वो जो बहते थे आबशार, कहाँ?” AAH!) is delivered beautifully by Rekha. -UVR
 
A slightly different Rekha Bharadwaj than usual and is most welcome. A song to be heard at low volumes with earphones while soaking in the words. -Gajendra

बड़ी धीरे जली (इश्क़िया)
ba.Dii dhiire jalii (Ishqiya)

विशाल भारद्वाज
Vishal Bharadwaj
गुलज़ार
Gulzar
रेखा भारद्वाज
Rekha Bhardwaj
Beautiful blend of classical with pace. The lyrics set themselves apart as examples of true class. Love the door opening/moving sounds, the sitar interludes… wow. -Shashi
 
The fusion doesn't work for me, but it's great to hear Rekha Bhardwaj. -Shalini
 
रेखा ने जिस तरह से इसे गाया है, क्या उससे बेहतर भी इस गाने को गाया जा सकता है? इस प्रश्न का उत्तर बहुत सरल है -- नहीं! बिलकुल नहीं! -UVR
 
Love what Rekha's voice can do to a song. In hands of another singer it probably wouldn't sound half as nice. -Gajendra
 
संगीत में जैसे अब मुझे कोई इंतज़ार कहाँ का विलोम हो. शास्त्रीयता की ओर. गुलज़ार के पुराने काम की याद दिलाता. -मिहिर
 
I'm a sucker for semi-classical fusion type songs so I have to give this high marks. Gulzar's lyrics are getting monotonous - seems to have similar theme and consistent use of "sajivaropan alankar" and in his attempt to get too fancy with it, sometimes meter of the song is compromised. I have to say though, I would rather have that than compromised meter in other songs with crappy lyrics. -Pranav

अमिताभ भट्टाचार्य
Amitabh Bhattacharya
अमित त्रिवेदी, अमिताभ भट्टाचार्य
Amit Trivedi, Amitabh Bhattacharya
Lovely upbeat melody that works well with the lyrics; Lots of little catchy details punctuate the song. -Ramanand
 
Finally, something likeable about the album. The beginning, a certain relaxed tone, and specially the lyrics. This is probably the territory Amit Trivedi should stick to. The pseudo-taans are here as well but for one straying off sur does not jar as much. -Vibhendu
 
Sigh! What a song! Udaan should be rated the best album! -Neha
 
jebo.n me.n ham raate.n liye ghooma kare - Gulzar must be envious! :-) -Shalini
 
Like the rhythm. Nicely layered. Captivating. -Sowmya
 
Heard this song 3 times and still cannot remember it - decent but no great shakes. -Shashi
 
Completely and pleasantly surprised when the drums' rhythm starts - the whole country feel is something I never expected when the song started - great job. -Pranav

ibn-e-batuutaa (Ishqiya)

विशाल भारद्वाज
Vishal Bharadwaj
गुलज़ार
Gulzar
सुखविंदर सिंह, मिका सिंह
Sukhwinder Singh, Mika Singh
I haven't heard a road song quite like this, not in a long while at least. Instantly catchy and immense fun. -Ramanand
 
My first likeable song of Mika. Rhythmic, vigorous and a true contrast in the singing - Sukhwinder versus Mika. As for lyrics - unbeatably rustic and common. -Shashi
 
Gulzar having fun is heady stuff. -Shalini
 
Vishal creates a catchy tune and Gulzar makes the best use of it. What a combo! -Pavan
 
क्या बोल लिखे गुलज़ार साहब ने. इंस्टेंट हिट! इसे इसके सांगीतिक अति-प्रयोग और खराब गायकी ने तबाह किया. -मिहिर
 
Love, love this song. Like the energy and the fun music. -Sowmya
 
Nothing special in singing. I don't know what's ibn-e-batuta so that combined with my comment above on Gulzar's approach to lyrics, it was down one notch. -Pranav
 
The song delivers the fun it promises. It rarely gets more enjoyable than this! -UVR

Mellow in the nicest way possible. -Shalini
 
Another one of my favorite from the list. Starts with the steel guitar, has the country feel and then transforms into blues - and what a cracking job in singing!!! Outstanding!! -Pranav
 
साल के सबसे बेहतरीन लिखे और गाए गए मुखड़ों में से एक. सादा और गहरा. -मिहिर
 
Hushed vocals - an Amit Trivedi staple work this time. A lovely laidback number. -Vibhendu
 
The singer's youthful and raw voice makes this song sound fresh and vibrant. -Sowmya
 
Reminds of the serenity of some English tracks. -Gajendra
 
Kind of a song that sets up the mood. -Pavan
 
Decent fare. -Shashi
 
Nice little guitar-backed piece, but if only someone better was doing the vocals. -Ramanand

Starts of like predictable rock use for inspirations josh-e-junoon type of songs - however by the time we are on the 2nd antara - we are completely hooked - the guitars very mesmerizing - the singing inspired and does justice to the words - we need Indian Ocean back on the mainstream. Enough of the sufi/urdu/qawaali mundane stuff - usher in new (err...old) blood. -Shashi
 
Wonderful! Wonderful! -Arun
 
The lyrics are awesome in every song nominated from Peepli [Live]. -UVR
 
ऐसा गीत जिसे शायद हिन्दी सिनेमा आज डिज़र्व नहीं करता. -मिहिर

इरशाद कामिल
Irshad Kaamil
मोहित चौहान
Mohit Chauhan
Even though mashed with the qawwali form (that's been a - sometimes annoying - feature of 2010), this is a fine song with a distinctive quietness throughout. Works very well as a romantic tune. -Ramanand
 
One of the best of the year... Mohit's voice has that charm! -Arun
 
One heck of a nashiilaa song. The singer sounds drunk which adds value to the song. The music is very expressive and strikes a chord. -Sowmya
 
Lovely singing. A song to be listened multiple times. -Gajendra
 
The songlist seems replete with the Urdu influence in lyrics - qawaalis, sufi style singing, rabb-Khuda-noor, etc. All singers tend to be either from the Rahat Ali or Kunal Ganjawala family. Every song has a qawaali-like chorals, arrangement is basic rhythm mostly electronic with some tabla and harmoniums thrown in for the classical effect. -Shashi

Amitabh Bhattacharya
अमित त्रिवेदी, न्यूमन पिंटो, अमिताभ भट्टाचार्य
Amit Trivedi, Neuman Pinto, Amitabh Bhattacharya
Why a song about aazaadiyaa.N and naa Daranaa begins on such a hushed, whispery note. Frankly does nothing for me, not helped by a bunch of disinterested students parroting a shloka in a class. The song does not soar even where it is pretending to. -Vibhendu
 
Great composition with so many layers…really evokes a feeling of 'aazaadii' -Shalini
 
Like the violin-sitar in the interludes, the singing is non-jarring but nothing special. -Shashi
 
Taken outside the context of the film, the songs of the film didn't have as much of an impact on me as they had when I was watching the movie. The lyrics are interesting in and of themselves, but the effect is diluted without the visuals in accompaniment. -UVR
 
The song that signifies the entire film. Wonderfully sung and composed. -Karthik
 
Like the way it's sung - ballad style (have to give Rahman credit for introducing it in desi music) but Amit Trivedi really rocks. -Pranav
 
Whatta song! Amit Trivedi has arrived! -Neha

Rollicking rock - excellent rendition - satisfying. -Shashi
 
This classical-fusion has a little too much going on, but I enjoyed it nevertheless. -Shalini
 
The combination of classical with rock is pretty good. I like the feel of the song overall. Shankar has very easily maneuvered his way through the song just like 'sapano.n se bhare nainaa', but the arrangement is not as spectacular as the latter. -Sowmya
 
Rocking music, rocking singing! -UVR
 
Loved it. Great singing, amazing arrangement and I never listened to lyrics too much anyway :). Just got a bit jarred by some of the words - sugandh, dRRishTi - not smooth enough from the "musicality" point of view. -Pranav

Did they need those english lyrics! Such a lovely song! -Neha
 
The gratuitous English lyrics strike again. Sigh. -Shalini
 
Love the accordian, the male singer portions are nice. The western influence jars - why is the Indian version of any gora-western influence always involves a 150 piece orchrestra, ballroom dancing and the Vienna Philaharmonic? Wish someone had studied the music of the British in those days and incorporated. The desi portion works. -Shashi
 
Sunidhi's cameo towards the end rescues an otherwise ok but not a great song. -Vibhendu
 
Lovely tune and very soothing arrangements. -Sowmya
 
Yet another RFAK song! Where are the other singers? And I don't mean Salim M/Vishal D/Shekhar/Sohail or Mika/Mohit. Can we have more of Sonu Nigam please? -Amarendra

Beyond the already fabulous soundtrack of Aisha, this song emerges, albeit after we've gorged on the more massy tracks, as the soundtrack's best! -Karthik
 
लक्ष्य काकितनी बातें’ याद आता है सुनते हुए. नए माहौल में अमित त्रिवेदी फिर से अपने को साबित करते हैं. -मिहिर
 
The violin refrain at the beginning and elsewhere is the best part about the song , holds it well. 'kaliyaa.N murajhaa gaye?'- how did Javed Akhtar let that pass, or does it go with the prevailing laissez-faire attitude in these matters? -Vibhendu
 
Love this song. Lovely jazz/club arrangement. Cannot beat *real drums*! Amazing violin leads and counters. Splendid guitar (lead and rhythm both). Singer's is the perfect voice for this song. -Pranav
 
100 points for the violins and drums - beautiful tango between the two. -Shashi
 
The cello is haunting and the singing good and the combination makes for a very nice listening experience indeed. Proper Urdu talaffuz no longer seems to be a pre-requisite for singers :-( and I've chosen to ignore the singer's mispronunciations even though it pains my poor heart so! -UVR
 
I liked that the song conveys melancholy sans melodrama. -Shalini
 
The simplicity of the song captured my attention. Beautifully laid out with the violin piece streaming back and forth and nice chords. -Sowmya
 
Nice use of the violin. -Gajendra

Lovely song: one with depth, simplicity, and intensity; points for being different than other songs of the year. -Ramanand
 
The Vishal Bharadwaj factor! The song is no doubt in Vishal's now-familiar template and is something he gets Suresh Wadkar to sing, but the man never fails to grab attention even with such familiar songs! -Karthik
 
Vishal is fast occupying the top 3 spots in my personal list of Best Contemporary MDs! -UVR
 
This one surprised me the most among the lot - A strong Amit Trivedi chhaap on this song? Dare I say Gulzar saab can take a leaf - you can write about aa.Nkhe.n, Khwaab, and yet be "maulik" and profound without going completely overboard! -Pranav
 
aur phir yuu.N huaa... ki kuchh nahii.n huaa... hamane almost skip kiyaa…but the minimalist arrangement with the focus on singing works. -Shashi

One of the best of the year! (and no wonder..its Rahat once again!) -Arun
 
There has been an overdose of the SEL-Sufi format, esp. for Karan Johar; still, a well-composed and balanced song like this still works well. RFAK has been involved in many such songs this year, but the overall package works much better than most of the others. -Ramanand
 
A very competent song - singing, composition - completely in the mood. -Shashi
 
Stupendous refrain (aka chorus/mukhda). The verse (antaraa) manages to meet the demands put on it by the chorus, just barely, but it does. Rahat's presence in the vocals doesn't hurt. -UVR

Beautiful! -Shalini
 
A very well executed song. I am slanted towards pastoral songs. But Rekha has again delivered superbly. Her voice has this lazy and a beautiful comatose feel that makes the "pining" in this song even more tangible. -Sowmya
 
I found Sajid-Wajid's mixing of the typical bhajan-kiirtan type orchestration (ma.njiraas, etc) with a qawwaalii-style male supporting voice line terribly interesting. -UVR
 
Rekha Bharadwaj's singing elevates a typical Sajid-Wajid arrangement to a higher plain - very enjoyable product. -Shashi
 
Rekha shows why she's the best choice for a thumri in a film today. Music also rises to the occasion showing the background of the composers. -Gajendra
 
What's with the mad chorus, drowning Rekha's spirited singing? At places, the chorus even goes all Bhangra. -Vibhendu
 
Sajid-Wajid do know how to pack a punch in their arrangement. Very very catchy. -Pranav

Fabulously catchy dance track, in true SEL style. -Karthik
 
Despite some of its shortcomings, one of my favourite songs of the year, particularly for its attention-grabbing hook line. -Ramanand
 
Very similar to the Kal Ho Na Ho song - It’s the Time To Disco…still manages to attract. -Shashi
 
SEL are past masters at how to convert a simple tune into an entertaining package through excellent arrangement and orchestration. -UVR
 
Regular Javed-SEL fare. Very good overall though. -Amarendra
 
Not SEL's best but still fun. -Shalini
 
वैसे इस गाने की सारी खूबसूरती दीपिका और फ़रहान की ऑन-स्क्रीन कैमिस्ट्री में छिपी है! -मिहिर
 
Love the variable tempo. 80s style fused with Indian classical, folk and hip-hop! Nicely done. -Pranav

The spirited singing elevates this above the other quasi-qawwalis that littered the 2010 musicalscape. -Shalini
 
Wow… Shankar Ehsan Loy have found their groove…some of the best qawaalis from them. -Shashi
 
The phrase “aahaT Khwaabo.n kii” is very nice. Shafqat's voice does a great job here (though I can't help wonder if Shankar wouldn't have done an equally good job). -UVR
 
Though in the usual SEL-Karan Johar-Qawwali vein, a catchy melody and well sung. -Ramanand
 
This song has a hypnotic feel to it. Shafqat even though not endowed with a powerful voice does a pretty nice job of rendering. Well blended music. -Sowmya

Exceptional, in all respects; brilliantly appropriate for the film's theme too. To me, this is the finest song of 2010. -Karthik
 
Each and every turn there's a surprise - even check out the drum rolls - which are so different and non-traditional. 2/4 beat but has no syncopation on beat 1, which gives a completely different feel. Lovely guitar leads too and then he has the gall to introduce just acoustic guitar and pan flute - which takes it to a celtic-folk level - but before you get used to it, it switches to a jazz scale and then back again to rock... I can go on and on. -Pranav
 
After an overdose of Rabba-Khuda-Maula, this album has too much inspirational tunes. This one is decent - no great shakes compared to Naav. -Shashi
 
A song that talks of flying and literally gives one the feeling. Good job by all. -Gajendra

Love the way Rahat emotes. One of those songs that you don't have to listen twice to love. -Sowmya
 
Pick of the album. -Gajendra
 
Why on the earth every second love song has to be sung by RFAK! They're killing him softly with these songs. -Pavan
 
Rahat's singing never fails to impress, yet the song gets an overall '1' from me because of the sub-par lyrics. -UVR
 
This one was an interesting one for me. Nothing special/different but still the melody of this composition is heart-warming. I like listening to this song. -Pranav
 
Nice rhythm pickup once the chorus joins in. -Shashi

The only reason this song is catchy is because it is so beautifully rendered by Rahat. -Sowmya

A much better version - in terms of rendition and music arrangement. The simple arrangement with guitars is endearing. -Shashi
 
There is a lot more feel that this song provides than the non-reprise version. I love Shekhar's voice and his singing. The melancholic nature of this song is brought out only in this version and that's what makes it so charming. And most of all I like the simple strumming without all the extra jazzy music. -Sowmya
 
Nice idea to reprise the other song, because the basic melody line is good, but drags in the 2nd half. -Ramanand
 
Higher overall points just because I like unplugged versions. Singing is not bad and like the "live" feel of the song. -Pranav
 
… but Shekhar steals the ball from Shafqat and … gooooooooal! -UVR
 
The reprise is slightly better than the duet largely due to the singing by shekhar. -Gajendra
 
Like the humming at the start and the minimal guitar music. -Shalini

A must hear for the vocals of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. The Sufi-sh lyrics are also nice although they get a bit repetetive. -Gajendra
 
Almost came close to be my most favorite. Is superbly rendered. The arrangement is wonderfully done and the lyrics are pretty nice. -Sowmya
 
'haalaato.n'? -Rakesh
 
Musically, this one sounds conceptually indistinguishable from “bahaaraa.N” from I Hate Luv Storys, and just like that song, Rahat makes the song an overall 4 for me! I would give the lyrics a 4 too were it not for the use of 'haalaato.n'. -UVR
 
Rahat is getting to be monotonous but still like the song, especially the 'rock' feel of the song. Gave extra half point for the scale change surprise - not common in HFM. -Pranav
 
Could have been a good inspirational song, except the 2nd singer/chorus jars badly. Nice rock like interludes on guitar. Even the lead singer sounds repeatative. -Shashi
 
I'm just grateful they've given "maula" a rest and gone back to Khuda! -Shalini
 
The unplugged version plays better perhaps because of Shruti's presence. -Vibhendu

Can I give minus marks on the lyrics for this! -Neha
 
Excellent job on catchy music and rhythm - should have invested in better lyrics. The singing is raunchy enough - but not exactly competent - more attitude than focus on singing. -Shashi
 
Of course a big hit - for obvious reasons - but thumping beats are the only thing you notice when listening (not watching) the song. Whatever! -Pranav
 
Dhinchak dhinchak to the core. After a few forced listens turns out to be a big bore. -Pavan
 
I would have given '5' to the singing if the male voice had been Sukhwinder's. As for the overall rating, it is hard to argue with mass appeal! -UVR
 
This “item song” is a total fit for the situation in the movie with lyrics that attract and amuse the listener. You may love or hate the song, but you can't ignore it. No wonder its been blazing everywhere. It is of course a song to be seen which then grows on you. -Gajendra

Liked the percussions, the African influences and the overall rhythm, but for a song introducing a tough and strange character, lacks strong energy. -Ramanand
 
रहमान का शुद्ध जादू. सीधे सर पर चढ़ने वाली मधुरतम बहती हुई धुन. इस गाने का सारा चमत्कार इसके सरल संगीत में है. -मिहिर
 
Noticed how so many Rahman songs have the same word repeating - biiraa biiraa, raa.Njhaa raa.Njhaa, ra.Ng de ra.Ng de, chhaiyaa chhaiyaa? -Pranav

स्वानंद के साथ जैसे लोकगायकी सिनेमा में लौट आई है. नुक्कड़ नाटकों के गीत लौट आए हैं, पेटी-बाजा लौट आया है. “शहर अकेला है, लाख हैं गलियाँ. मंज़िल तो दिखती, राह मिलियाँ के साथ गीत साल की सबसे अच्छी लिरिक्स अपने भीतर समेटे है. मेरी व्यक्तिगत पसंद. -मिहिर
 
If not Khudaa - it should be Maulaa -Shashi
 
Swanand handles all departments – lyrics, music and singing here. Results are mixed, however. -Gajendra
 
Nice to see that song can be carried with just a tabalaa and a harmonium in a movie. Well done! -Pranav

Kailash Kher's getting so repetitive. -Shashi
 
A little too reminiscent of the Kailash Kher-voiced SEL song in Salaam-e-Ishq ('yaa rabbaa'). -Ramanand
 
Both singers display a good voice quality here. -Gajendra
 
I found the cling-clang of the manjeeras in the background rather annoyingly distracting. Kailash's singing also didn't impress me much. -UVR

10 gram Akkal…20 gram fake Kunal sexiness, all points given for the use of bell, the whistling. -Shashi
 
There is something attractive about the song and yet... I like Kunal's rendition but there is a lack of cohesiveness in the song that I can't explain. That lowers the score for this one. -Sowmya
 
Took sime time to grow but the pseudo-poetic song works on many levels. -Pavan
 
I am sorry – bad pronuncation gets me EVERY time! -UVR
 
Kunal is starting to sound like Kumar Sanu now. -Neha
 
Seems like a incoherent mash-up of several elements that appealed to the music director; the parts just don't add up to the whole, and in totality, sounded very affected . -Ramanand
 
Kunal G tried his best and he's the only saving grace of this - what could've been a really good - song. Pathetic lyrics, especially when it doesn't fit in the meter of the song. Lost it when the Angrezi part started but then I thought it's probably good because saves from listening to the Hindi lyrics. -Pranav
 
The lyrics are interesting (quite Gulzaarish!). Music is underplayed as per requirement of the song. -Gajendra
 
The lyrics are a bit too precious for me, but I like the lesiurely pace. -Shalini

Fairly good music. -Gajendra

Sonu has really let me down this year. -Arun
 
An average song by Sonu which does show what he is capable of in places. -Gajendra
 
Lovely melody, arrangement is what you'd expect from Pritam - which I like. *But*, just imagine if KK or someone had sung this song! -Pranav
 
Sonu does a surprisingly good job with the singing here, staying away from the overemoting that seems sadly to have become an integral feature of his voice these days. -UVR
 
Starts of as a Rafi tune from yore - Sonu reverting back to his sexy singing - but after the 1st antara, he lifts the song to new heights making it a certain for a repeat listen. -Shashi

First got to hear the song for this exercise only, a pleasant surprise. Vishal casts himself against type in the song and Shilpa remains the strongest out of post Sunidhi lot. -Vibhendu
 
Great rock ballad. Like the leit motif of aas paas Khudaa. Shilpa Rao's voice is mesmerizing. Male voice is autotuned like mad. -Pranav
 
Yawn... -Pavan
 
Shilpa Rao's voice quality is something I look forward to. The song is passable however. -Gajendra
 
Bearable background song - not sure if the tune will live long with me. -Shashi

The first few lines by Prasoon Joshi got me hooked to the song. An interesting intro of characters and contrasting nature. -Pavan
 
The track can get addictive on repeated listening due to its catchy mukhda. -Gajendra
 
Again with the English lyrics... at least the beat is catchy. -Shalini
 
Catchy… that's all. -Shashi
 
This song just didn't do anything for me. -UVR

The song descends into the banal/familiar/qawwali territory after a great start. But the Punjabi lament and Shruti's voice in the beginning are the best part of the song. Liked the metaphor in the beginning, borrowed or original. -Vibhendu
 
Nice fusion of love and qawaali genres - all marks to the inspired music. -Shashi
 
Faint echo of the much better 'Khudaa jaane'. -Shalini
 
The chorus is better than the lead singers' singing. -Rakesh
 
Nice orchestration. -Gajendra

Confused if the song aspires to be a dance, trance or soulful song - does not work on any end for me. -Shashi
 
Starts off interesting then settles into the same old classical-pop mode. -Shalini
 
Not a big fan of this derivative song. -Arun

Nice rhythm loop in the song, the singer is good, nice dance track. -Shashi
 
A Holi song as stale as an Ashwarya joke. Strictly for Ash fans. -Pavan
 
Sunidhi Chauhan and Ritu Pathak's singing is what has made the song a chart buster and is the redeeming feature of the song. The music is passable with Pritam's usual beats. It is too long for its own good, losing steam in between. The old format of 3 minutes had its merits. :). -Gajendra
 
इरशाद कामिल के बोल बड़ेआमफ़हम’ होते हैं. यह खूबी है. -मिहिर
 
The song starts off tantalizingly, but doesn't quite rise to meet the energy and power promised by the beginning of the mukhda. The first two lines of the antaraas try, but don't manage to deliver. -UVR
 
I reckon this song may have had punch on screen but just from music/lyrics/singing perspective, this song is completely forgettable. -Pranav

Execrable rap, hackneyed composition and lyrics. -Ramanand
 
Enough already with the English rap lyrics! -Shalini
 
Classic made-for-night-club song. Daler sings that pitch because he can. Why did Richa have to sing nasal? -Pranav
 
Daler's singing and the rap made this item song a lot interesting. -Pavan
 
Both singers sing it with a nice attitude in tune with the theme of the song; made to play in the discos and cars for a time and then to be forgotten in the days to come. -Gajendra
 
ऋचा शर्मा ने जो भी प्रयोग किया है अपनी आवाज़ के साथ वोअझेल’ है. कुछ बोल मज़ेदार हैं, दलेर की आवाज़ भी. -मिहिर
 
Better songs are composed in the local ganpati and navratri pandals, completely inane lyrics. -Shashi
 
Who would have thought that Daler's voice suits Akshay Kumar's face? But it does, and does so very well. Lyrics were corny yet appropriate for the song. -UVR

The best part of the song is rhythm - which was already composed by Kalyanji Anandji… Mika should really learn to pronounce and enunciate complete words. -Shashi
 
Wondering if there's much point in rating a remix of an old song. -Ramanand
 
A retake on the early 80s hit made for the discos complete with beats catering to the galleries. Singing is fairly good without comparing to the original Kishore. -Gajendra
