EDITORS’ NOTES

Rahman's soundtrack for this 1995 romantic comedy underscores the fact that he's equally gifted at concise songwriting and atmospheric composition. "Hai Rama" and "Pyar Yeh Jane Kaise" both make arresting use of swirling, evocative sonic textures and murmur-to-roar dynamic shifts, while the instrumental "Spirit of Rangeela" runs on hurtling rhythms and dramatic, serpentine orchestrations. But the hypnotic, propulsive melodic turns of "Tanha Tanha" and "Rangeela Re" are just as commanding, especially with beloved veteran playback singer Asha Bhosle coming out of retirement to sing them.

Amazing songs

This was an era when Rahman was at his best. All tracks are great except for kya kare kya na kare. Tanha tanha is a song I could listen to again and again, it would transport me to another world. I wish Rahman would make music like this again.
