Rajesh Roshan, one of the most prolific and respected composers of Hindi cinema, has been creating wonderful music 70s. As per the family tradition, Rakesh Roshan’s younger sibling composed the soundtrack this time too for Krrish 3.
In addition to composing, Rajesh Roshan has also sung the movie title. Veteran lyricist Sameer Anjaan is the lyricist for the much awaited superhero-flick. Roshan, who also composed music for the first bollywood sci-fi superhero film (Koi Mil Gaya), desperately tries to re-create the magic he did with the previous two films.
Roshan’s repertoire in this movie has five originals and two remixes. It starts with the movie title track Krrish Krrish sung by Mamta Sharma, Anirudh Bhola and Rajesh himself. The instrumental part at the beginning reminds the listener of Dilwalo dil mera from Kaho Na Pyaar Hai as the song has RR’s trademark touch – a healthy dose of flute and drums. Sadly, the lyrics – Jab jab gehra dhuaan chayega tab tab banke mashaal aayega… Krrish, Krrish (similar to the title track Dhoom dhoom from Dhoom) – meant to describe the superhero and all he has done for the betterment of his people are a letdown. It would be better if Roshan kept it instrumental.
Then comes the energetic and most popular song on the album – Raghupati Raghav. If you loved It’s Magic from Koi Mil Gaya, chances are you will like Raghupati…, sung with his usual spunk by Neeraj Sridhar. As always, Sridhar is spirited and lively and makes this dance number catchy and likeable. The start of the foot-tapping song is in the zone of Kaisi paheli hai yeh from Parineeta. The remix version doesn’t have much change, though Roshan and DJ Shiva have increased the tempo.
Dil tu hi bataa sung by Zubeen Garg (Ya Ali from Gangster) and Alisha Chinoy is a romantic number that may sound good but it’s slow tempo is a test of patience. Zubeen has done a splendid job and Alisha is back with a bang. The song You are my love seems to be tailor-made for Alisha’s raspy voice. Joining her is Mohit Chauhan, who gets into Kunal Ganjawala mode for this sweet composition with lyrics that go Tere kadmo mein dil rakh du until I’m gonna die… Priyanka Chopra was supposed to sing this number, but Rajesh eventually settled for Alisha, the best option for PC, according to him.
The last song God allah aur bhagwan seems like a prayer which starts with the Krrish theme. Sung by Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal, the composition is average. The song is good but the school-kid lyrics take away the charm
Despite being well packaged, Krrish 3 is still just another regular effort by Rajesh Roshan. Post Kaho Na Pyaar Hai, the gifted composer has been displaying a techno vibe, throwing a little of KNPH into everything. Nevertheless, Rakesh Roshan’s solid cast – Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Vivek Oberoi and Kangna Ranaut – and the interesting promotion campaign might boost audio sales.
