                                 He is back! Yash Chopra, after a hiatus of eight years, is here to entertain audience again with his latest film Jab Tak Hai Jaan. By now trade pundits are already betting on how the movie as well as the music would fare. No wonder, there are ton loads of expectations here since the King of Romance is involved. It is taken for granted that if it’s a Yash Chopra film, music would be a treat to ears and just the kind which is unforgettable. Stakes have always been high where he is involved and for the last 20 years since Shah Rukh Khan is featuring in his films, right from Darr, Dil Toh Paagal Hai to Veer Zaara, stakes have only gone higher up. In 2012, it is Shah Rukh along with the music maestro A R Rahman and the King of poetry Gulzar coming together to recreate the magic.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan Music Review: Challa

The album begins with Rabbi Shergill’s mesmerizing Challa. It’s a Punjabi number with a guitar base to it and manages to attract the listener instantly. The song has been played across all TV channels and is definitely helping in promoting the movie. Rabbi’s voice with absorbing lyrics is what draws you towards the song, though one can’t be too sure of his vocals suiting Shah Rukh.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan Music Review: Saans

Next is Saans which fulfils the dreamy soft romantic track requirement as per Yash Chopra
School of Music. Owner of smooth voices, Mohit Chauhan and Shreya Ghoshal, do the
honours in this song which has deep lyrics which would appeal only after you have given it
a keen listening. Though it’s a romantic track, a little faster pace would have been helpful
since it tends to get monotonous after a while. Later there is also a ‘reprise version’ which
is Shreya’s solo.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan Music Review: Ishq Shava

Ishq Shava is a foot tapping romantic duet rendered by Raghav Mathur and Shilpa Rao.
It is a soothing experimentation by the maestro and the music here does not belong to
any one genre as it fluctuates from being techno to Arabian, hence turning out to be an amalgamation of sorts. One would take time to get used to the track. However, it definitely
proves Shilpa Rao’s versatility. After flooring the listener with Gustaakh Dil [English Vinglish],
this one is another feather in her cap.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan Music Review: Jiya Re

Jiya Re changes the tempo in the album. A refreshing voice delivers the track with lot of enthusiasm and variations. Neeti Mohan’s style emulates that of Sunidhi Chauhan and if one close eyes for a minute, you can actually visualise the latter crooning this one. By the sound of it, Jiya Re appears to be a track made for Anushka as it does suit her bubbly and youthful image. Though a good attempt, it doesn’t quite carry Mere Khwabon Mein Jo Aaye moments from Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge.
