Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na soundtrack releases today!

Been counting down to the Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na soundtrack which releases today, May 20 (watch trailers). Shammi Kapoor will be launching the soundtrack at his home, like he did for Taare Zameen Par (watch footage from that launch in this post). The following from this news story:

Apart from being an old family friend (Shammi Kapoor having worked in Nasir Hussain classics like Teesri Manzil and Tumsa Nahin Dekha), Aamir considers Shammiji as his lucky mascot and has been seeking his blessings right from his debut film.

With music by A. R. Rahman and lyrics by Abbas Tyrewala, the film stars
Genelia D'Souza and Aamir Khan's nephew Imran Khan. Here are the rest of the posts on the film (including trailers). Here is a news piece noting the actors' reluctance to discuss the film's plot. And here is the track listing:

1. Kabhi Kabhi Aditi Zindagi (3:41)

Rashid Ali

2. Pappu Can't Dance (4:27)
Blaze, Mohammad Aslam, Tanvi, Anupama Deshpande, Benny Dayal, Tanvi, Darshana, Satish Subramanium

3. Jaane Tu Mera Kya Hai (3:41)
Runa Rizvi

4. Nazrein Milaana Nazrein Churaana ( 3:57)
Swetha Bhargave, Naresh Iyer, Satish Chakravarthye, Tanvi, Darshana, Benny Dayal, Anupama Deshpande

5. Tu Bole Main Boloon (4:36)
A. R. Rahman

6. Kahin To Hogi Ho (5:05)
Rashid Ali, Vasundhara Das

7. Jaane Tu Meri Kya Hai (5:44)
Sukhwinder Singh

8. Pappu Cant Dance - Remix (4:27)
Anupama Deshpande, Benny Dayal, Benny Dayal, Blaze, Tanvi, Darshana, Satish Subramanium, Mohammad Aslam


Glad Runa Rizvi gets a song. She was excellent in Rafta Rafta from the film Katputtli (2006) -- listen to it here -- in a song that went largely unnoticed. Should be fun!

It might be a couple of days before I can buy, listen, listen again, and share thoughts on the music. My experience with A. R. Rahman soundtracks is that they tend to grow on the listener over time. A fair music review, then, would follow three to four listens, which I know will happen because of the quality of Rahman's products!

Those of you who listen to it earlier...your thoughts?

Hi Anuraj: Thank you for stopping by. Agree with your assessment of the Jaane Tu soundtrack. I do think it is the best of the year, but I would be curious to see how Ghajini's music will compare to this to wrap up 2008. I do believe Ghajini will be atypical even by Aamir Khan standards, because the theme seems to warrant something extraordinary.

As for the awards...I cannot imagine anyone other than A. R. Rahman winning the music awards next year. First Jodhaa Akbar, then Jaane Tu and Ada, and he's still not done!

Thanks for your reply dude...Rahman if i am not mistaken also has Main Yuvraj which is a MUSICAL MOVIE..i mean a movie about music..it stars Salman and Katrina..seems to be held up because of Salman's other commitments..
but i am sure if the maker shows interest..Rahman will do good there also
