It's great to be back, slinging mud on a veteran music director whose creations are loved by the masses...
Aaaaaashiq Banayaaaa, Aaaaaashiq Banayaaaa, Aaaaaashiq Banayaaaa aaaapne...
Quite similar to the Sourav Ganguly thingie, the indian community is split in two factions - those who know he sucks, and those who think he doesn't.
I went through some amount of effort to enkindle my iced fingers, numb from lack of blogging. I wasted precious disk space, downloading the whole album of Aksar to scrounge for the song that had spoilt our Nehru Canteen experience. I snipped off the decent parts, and saved the section that epitomises the feelings I plan to word. To absorb the essense of Himesh Reshammiya's bawling, I suggest you click here and get into the same mood.

Apparently, this guy has been in the industry since 2000. I earlier thought that it was a duo creating such crap for the industry. It's just one guy. This one --

One of his first movies was "Jodi No. 1". I think we all remember 'Ande ka fundaa'. Again, there are either lovers or haters of that composition.
Then came the landmark music of "Ye Hai Jalwa". You all probably won't remember it. It had Salman Khan strutting on a bridge with Amisha Patel (2002). Back then, he left the job of bawling to Kumar Sanu. The song went like this :
Ooooooooo Jaane Jigar...
Ooooaaaoooo Jaane Jigar...

Then came his major hit "Humraaz", followed by "Tere Naam". All this while, he hadn't attempted to sing himself. I sincerely thank the lord for his lack of confidence....Then "Aashiq Banaaya Aapne" happened.
May I please know what aspect of this song appeals to people ? His voice is so nasal, that it puts Kumar Sanu to shame. It seems pronouncing 'Aashiq' as 'Aasiq' while singing is kind of a cool thing. lik typin lik dis 2 imprss ppl. What the public sadly did was instigating the inner singer in this moron. If composing banal songs wasn't enough, he was now disposed to think - 'Hey, why not sing all this myself ?'

What he offers us in 2006 is a great movie called 'Aksar'. The catchline of the movie is "How often..." - how often do you cheat on your partner etc etc. You can construct the rest of the story yourself with smoochy Emraan Hashmi and sultry Tara Sharma. Inspired by the success of A.B.Aapne, Himesh ji has sung two songs in movie, created a dozen versions of the 'dhik-chik-dhik-chik' songs. One is called remix, the other is called unplugged, and they all sound the same.
I suggest you DON'T buy the album.
Even if the songs are available as free mp3's, don't torture yourself with them.
And someone please go and whack Kumar Sanu. please.


  1. KKK has a new meaning: 'K'umar 'K'aran 'K'han

    (sanu) (Johar) (Shah Rukh)

  2. awesome post. much required. i have a roommate here who plays this fucked up song every morning to wake me up.

  3. Abe...cant stop laughing... especially after u bitched Kumar Sanu ... Seriously ... this Himesh guy sucks !!! All his songs sound the same... the tune also seems similar.. there's neither any modulation or variety !! God help him if he has to survive long !!

  4. I must admit ..
    you hate the so hard that you took all the pains to extract a part of song and upload it.
    the .. lets call it.. the most nasal part of the song

  5. agree...except the sanu thing...i love kumar sanu...

  6. And yeah some info...

    His first ever song was "Odh lee chunariya" from the movie..."Pyar kiya to darna kiya" He had only one song in the movie and it was a superhit song...His first full movie was "Hello Brother"....and then came "Dulhan Hum Le jayenge"...Jodi No. 1 was much later....

    the guy has over 800 tunes in cold storage..or so he claims...and he is has also invaded the alredy crowded space in indian television...he is on Zee's "Sa re ga ma pa Hero Honda Challenge" (phew some name that).....
