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:

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?
