Composer Pritam has churned out appealing tunes for the album of "Tum Mile", which stars Emraan Hashmi and Soha Ali Khan. The score is an all-male domain as none of the tracks features a female playback singer.
The title song "Tum Mile" has three versions and is crooned by different singers.
The first of the three has Neeraj Shridhar behind the microphone. It is a bouncy song that includes a few English lyrics as well. But this version doesn't impress much.
The next is a melodious mushy offering by Javed Ali. It is slower in pace but more appealing. The song succeeds in creating a romantic feel.
The third one is the rock version, which is equally nice and is sung wonderfully by Shafqat Amanat Ali. High on electric guitar, this version is very impressive and has the potential to be a chartbuster.
Next is "Dil Ibaadat", sung by KK. This soft-paced song is a signature Pritam composition.
This too has a rock version, which is better than the original. This one is more interesting and strikes a chord with the listener.
Next in line is a song with a Sufi influence, "Tu hi haqeeqat". Crooned by Javed Ali, the soulful number is a delight to hear owing to its lyrics and great orchestration.
"Iss Jahan Mein" by Mohit Chauhan has incorporated contemporary sounds. It is a nice, pleasing number.
Then there is "Oh meri jaan", a slow, poignant track. KK is the favourite for such mellow songs and he proves his prowess yet again with this number.
The soundtrack also entails an instrumental piece.
On the whole, Pritam has done a commendable job. All the songs are worth listening and is sure attract music buffs.
