Aaja Milke is a beautiful
song sung by duet Shreya Ghoshal and Shail Hada. The arrangement
of the song is very simple and pleasant something like never heard before. With its slightly acoustic feel, the song feels classy and Sameer's lyrics though a bit stereotypical, gel well
with the compositions.
Making its way next to Bin
Dasseya is Kithe Jawan. One comes across pure synth
sounds with a classical scoop of sarangi. The snog is a blend of east-meets-west
where in on one interlude we have the sarangi while on the
other are the melodies of the guitar. Once again the female playback has been given by Richa Sharma
who has done a great job.
The next song Dukh Ke Badri has the presence of deeply rooted melody. Kalpana as the female
playback singer has done complete justice to the song. HOwever, the song seems to be very simple in comparison to the other compositions in this album.
The last track of CHAMKU- Trance is a remix with trance effects, which is a peculiar one with limited multi-language, add – ins. Anaida, Salim Shahzaad, Prem Raagi, and Sowmya Raoh handle the vocals well. Quite possibly, at its very best it may hit the dance floors!
Chamku has some great tracks and is a unique album but somewhere it may not make its way to being a hit as it caters to the taste of a niche segment of the audience.
