Aap Se Mausiiquii Music Video



The song begins with likeable grand piano interlude, joined in by grand warm violin piece until 0:29

Himesh croons the intro lines in super high pitch, whereby the lines AAHISTIGI (awesome compositional notes) 0:40 to 0:44 and BAS AAP HI (awesome composition notes) from 0:56 to 0:59 give completeless effect, appeal and impact to the preceeding mukhda lines.

Himesh's high pitched intro lines, HALKA HALKA SA, HAI NOOR DIL MEIN, SAANSON MEIN BHI HAI AAHISTIGUI...BEIKTHYARI, YEH KEH RAHI HAI, MERI TOH DUNIYA, BAS AAP HI from 0:30 to 0:58 along with quick repetitive piano keys with sense of urgency like fastening heartbeat is out-of-da-world build up.

The violin interlude from 0:59 to 1:01 has a painful emotional quotient.

The extended mukhda hook from 1:01 onwards is from Himesh's Sufi Rwak stable, which is complex unconventional and full of profound twists, yet so appealing.

Himesh sings with heartfelt vocals.

Himesh's line, AAP SE (profound Sufi Rwak twist) from 1:02 to 1:03, AASHIQUI (profound Sufi Rwak twist) from 1:04 to 1:05, MAUSIQUII (profound Sufi Rwak twist) from 1:11 to 1:12

Himesh's line, MAUSIQUII (awesome composition note) from 1:13 to 1:16 is the intermediate connecting line that gives appeal to the whole mukhda hook.

Himesh's line, AAP SE (awesome heartfelt vocals with painful kashish) from 1:16 to 1:17

The underlying piano interlude in backdrop conveys the urgency of love and enhances great build up until this point.

Grand thunder effect at 1:20

The underlying subtle drum hits from 1:21 onwards have a 'halke se feel' in terms of complimenting the tempo of the composition and progressing it forward.

Himesh's line, AAP SE (off-da-hook fulltu vocals, off-da-hook compositional notes whereby mukhda reaches it peak) from 1:16 to 1:19 to fully express underlying inner feelings of lover.

Himesh's line, MAUS (out-of-da-world ghehraayi singing) IQUIII-IIIIII (out-of-da-world prolonged tonal kashish) from 1:38 to 1:47

Between mukhda and stanza, the combo of violin piece and piano interlude is back.

Stanza

Himesh softens his vocal chords to sing with super subtle heartfelt vocals that strike a chord and melt the listener on compositional notes from 2:26 to 2:49 that come from his pre ABA style of music.

The underlying subtle piano and violin enhance the heartfelt quotient, whereby the repetitive piano keys depict the ticking time and fastened heartbeat in terms of the urgency of lover to finally attain love.

Grand thunder effect at 2:50

The lines from 2:52 to 3:02 again are from Himesh's Sufi Rwak stable that depict the complex and kashmakash side of love in trying and testing times, with lines GUZAARISHEN (awesome profound Sufi Rwak twist) from 2:54 to 2:57

After the unplugged part, the subtle drum hits are back from 3:02 onwards to give that 'halke se' rhythmic feel that gets the listener slowly but surely into the slow groove.

The lyrics from 3:02 to 3:32 have emotional chord and konnekt in them.

Himesh's line, BAS AAP HAIN (awesome composition notes) from 3:13 to 3:16 & 3:28 to 3:32 give completeless effect, appeal and impact to the preceeding lines.

Himesh's line, AAAA (tadap ki Aah) from 3:49 to 3:51

Highlights of this song:

1. Himesh's heartfelt vocals with echo effect.

2. Underlying subtle drum hits, grand piano interlude, emotional feel grand violin and intermittent grand thunder effect.

Aap Se Mausiiquii Music Video



The song has been shot aesthetically with grand picturesque locales.

The female model Puja Banerjee has acted quite well with her innocent masoom aadayein during beginning and intriguing emotional expressions during the end.

Himesh has acted well and done justification to his character of a lover with unconditional love.

There is heartfelt shidaat in his expressions from 1:01 to 1:34 & 3:02 to 3:59

Himesh's female colleague has acted naturally and their interaction and dialogue delivery from 2:08 to 2:25 is great.

The ending concept steals the show, when Himesh finally decides 'that's it' in terms of the wait being over and now it is time to express his love and let the girl know about it. The way he turns around and looks at her from 4:01 to 4:04, slowly walks upto her, holds her hand, gives her the card, and she gently feels the words written on it, stands up in kashmakash upon the realization of what it means, touching Himesh's cheeks with tears trickling down her eye and hugs him. This is a feel good ending but leaves the viewer with a heavy heart, melting feeling and gutted due to the way the ending of story unfolds. The arrangement also reaches its culmination and reprise point, with the chime effect from 4:36 to 4:40, followed by heartfelt piano interlude and emotional feel violin piece that conveys mixed feelings in terms of tugging at the emotional strings of heart and also giving a happy end vibe with the completeness and satisfaction that the lovers united and the girl found love despite all the odds. 

Also what gets to the viewer is when Himesh tells his female colleague 'kabhi kabhi soch ke hairat hoti hai, ki itni achi ladki ke saath aisa kyun hua' and he is a photographer who keeps on clicking her and making collage of her pics on the wall from 2:08 to 2:26 & 2:37 to 2:50, and then shares his pain with his lover in line 'me in aankhon se kuch na dekhunga, mera manzar toh bas aap hain' in the sense that, she can't see herself how gorgeous she is and the world around her, so Himesh says that he also doesn't care about the world except her as she is gorgeous from her inner self whereby wonderful thoughts surround her despite the darkened visual space, and to find a place in her heart is his final destination whereby he can share all the feelings and emotional journey with her while giving her and enjoying with her all the beautiful aspects in her life which can be enhanced as much as possible.

The likeable feel good guitar theme riffs from 0:26 to 0:38 & 0:58 to 1:10 are inspired from the raga theme piece in DIL DIL from ISHQ HAI TUMSE.

The simple well structured composition pattern sounds Deja-Vu but still likeable and it is freeflowing, which is enhanced by the freeflowing rhythmic beat from 0:38 onwards.

Himesh's line, DEE (subtle feel singing) at 1:28 & 1:35

Best part in song is Himesh's off-da-hook singing in lines, AAKHIYON SE NADIYAN SAARI AAJ (off-da-hook halke se feel singing) BEHN DE from 1:38 to 1:43 that win over  the listener, followed by the combo of off-da-hook whoosh effect, off-da-hook quick hit pattern and wicked techno riff from 1:44 to 1:46 in unplugged mode.

Menu Kehn De Music Video

The music video is shot well with aerial view of grand locales at start, and on top of mountain cliff from 2:00 to 2:10 which is very gutsy.



The female model Alankrita Sahai seems innocent at 1:37 & 3:42

She seems to be in kashmakash at 1:43 & 2:52 due to the state of a failing relationship.

She seems to be in agitated state at 2:21

Her dialogue delivery is great. First she calmly explains her dilemma in dialogue Tumhare Paas Mere Liye Koi Waqt Nahi Hai, You Don't Have Any Time For Our Relationship from 2:15 to 2:20 and then vents out her anger and frustration in dialogue Isi Liye Accha Yahi Hoga Ki Hum Dono Alag Ho Jaaye from 2:21 to 2:23 but while taking siskiyaan in a cute adorable andaaz.

But the video has a happy ending with Himesh putting the engagement ring on the girl's finger, kissing and hugging her, and eliminating her kashmakash bhavnaen at last after uncertain turbulent state of affairs in their relationship.



Himesh needs to work on his dialogue delivery because the way he says the dialogue JAISE TUMHARI MARZI in super bazz vocals sounds robotic. He should work on his intonation and bring variations in it, and also deliver filmy dialogues in a normal way like how he talks in interviews, rather than delivering one liners in an artificial drunken state.

The concept of music video is picturized in a cute adorable way in terms of how the narrative unfolds which makes the viewer smile. There have been happy endings in the first two music videos.

Tonight

The song begins with a cult wicked comical naughty Bansuri piece that tries to whisper something in non comprehendo Alienish lingo until 0:23 and makes the listener smile. This is an unconventional out-of-the-box thinking in terms of starting arrangement.

Himesh mixes his Sufi Rwak with Arabic to make a 'Sufi Rwak Arabian' combo in the high pitched mukhda hook line from 1:01 to 1:19 whereby his Arabian diction is 'Spot On' along with great khanaak in vocals.

Between 1st & 2nd stanza, a non comprehendo comical Alienish mischievious female seductive voice that makes the listener smile from 3:27 to 3:36 as if it is an invitation to quietly come to a 'khali khopcha / silent corner' of the club.

Tonight Music Video

Alankrita Sahai did good job but someone like a Big boss contestant Lopamudra Raut could be quite hot and steamy for this music video. Ideally a fresh female face and new female model in every video will ensure more impact and views, even Aap Ka Surroor had no repetition of girls. Himesh also launches a male model in this video, who protrays the wicked boyfriend.

The cutest part of the video is when Alankrita makes a fist to cutely punch her boyfriend, after he pushes Himesh.

Himesh feelin da beat.

Female DJ going wild and crazy

The only drawback is that this was a perfect opportunity for Himesh to dance, but again that same old DJ wala concept added no novelty in the video. When Himesh can do so many new things like singing, acting, writing lyrics and trying action sequences then why can't he learn dancing, and the chorepgrapher can give him some easy simple steps for a start and it can add something new to a music video which is basically a dance track and party song.

So Much In Love

The song begins with an extended continuous loud vibrant metallic guitar piece which sounds a bit pepetrative and harsh, joined in by a funky guitar tune from 0:15 onwards.

The repetitive mukhda hook line SO MUCH IN LOVE BABY builds up the song from 0:30 onwards.

The peppy party theme piece joins in from 1:00 onwards along with semi plugged whoosh effect, and a semi plugged beat skip pattern from 1:07 to 1:14 that catches the listener's pulse.

The intro mukhda line from 1:29 to 1:43 is off-da-hook catchy and well structured, with the lines SUBAH KI...RAUNAKEIN...SIYAHIYAN (off-da-hook Sufi Rwak desperation plea emphasis twist)...SHAAM KI...AAYATEIN BAD RAHI (Sufi Rwak composition), SAB TERE NAAM KI (pre ABA composition, off-da-hook halke se feel singing wins over listener), along with off-da-hook fluctuating groovy sound and trance effect that causes tremendous build up.

Off-da-hook new age drum roll beats from 1:42 to 1:44 gives perfect kickstart to mukhda.

Himesh enjoys his stint behind the mic with carefree cheesy vocals from 1:44 onwards, whereby the listener gets into da groove along with the full on underlying House mix beat.

His lines, JAAGU MEIN SARI RAAT MEIN YAADON MEIN TUMHAARI, JANNAT DIKHE MUJHE AANKHON MEIN TUMHARI from 1:45 to 1:52 take the listener into a state of trance and give a 'middle of nowhere' feeling whereby the listeners imagine themselves in a far away unknown secluded exotic rugged mountaneous area (the same feeling with YA ALI and AASHIQANA HAI DIL).

The repetitive mukhda hook SO MUCH IN LOVE has an easy going vibe to it.

Between mukhda & 1st stanza, the peppy party theme is back from 2:10 to 2:25

1st stanza

The composition pattern is unconventional, faced paced and quite effective.

The semi plugged vibrant trance tune gives great build up from 2:25 onwards followed by full on underlying House mix beat from 2:33 onwards

Himesh's vocals have kashish in them, and a slight tinge of Auto Tune adds sugar coating polish to them.

Off-da-hook kick@$$ drumroll hits from 2:57 to 2:58

Between 1st & 2nd stanza, an edgy iffy Electronica tune plays in semi plugged mode from 3:28 to 3:35 joined in by underlying full on House mix beat from 3:36 onwards.

2nd stanza

The composition pattern is unconventional, faced paced and quite effective.

The semi plugged vibrant trance tune gives great build up from 3:44 onwards followed by full on underlying House mix beat from 2:25 onwards

His lines, CHEHRE PE (off-da-hook fulltu high pitched singing gets to listener) from 3:48 to 3:49, CHAND BADALON MEIN (off-da-hook fulltu high pitched singing gets to listener) from 3:55 to 3:56, WO-OO-OO-OO (off-da-hook fulltu high pitched alaap gets to listener) from 4:04 to 4:05

So Much In Love Music Video

It is the 'most cutest and adorable' music video featuring Himesh till date.

The cute faces that Alankrita Sahai makes from 1:32 to 1:42 are so adorable, kya kamsin aadayein hai.

Great nazaara of Bullet train from 0:38 to 0:40

Great nazaara of aerial view of spectacular fireworks from 2:10

Great nazaara aerial view of seaside mountaneous terrain from 1:21 to 1:24, its where the listeners imagine themselves during Himesh's lines, JAAGU MEIN SARI RAAT MEIN YAADON MEIN TUMHAARI, JANNAT DIKHE MUJHE AANKHON MEIN TUMHARI from 1:45 to 1:52

The concept of a House Party going out outside Himesh's actual house is great. Amazing idea of having a massive House party outside his own house.

He can't believe that a House Party is going on outside his house.

After his double humshakal winks at him and takes the girl, he is astonished

Time to make a gameplan and execute it with utmost concentration

The hook line from 0:48 to 0:58 & 1:10 to 1:30 has a simple composition pattern with a Deja-Vu feel, but the lyrics will interest young couple jodis.

Neha Kakkar's selection is ideal as she sings with bindass carefree attitude.

Off-da-hook wicked quick belly shake effect at 0:11

The repetitive mukhda lines from 0:23 to 0:40 are basically slogans in simple notes and they have been sung with swag. Despite being simple, the composition is effective.

Since the mood is in a Trippy state, the lyrics imply that the lovers don't know what they really are saying and are blabbering anything just for da sake of it, whilst having a good time.

Himesh's line, JHOOM from 0:46 to 0:51 is DJ manipulated by gradually increasing higher octaves along with accelerating beats, followed by wicked bazz funky sound from 0:52 to 1:02 to give it a Dubstep mash up.

The line DJ BARA TUM, PUMP UP THE VOLUME is kind of hilarious.

Good build up by accelerating beats along with Neha's lines NASHE KOH BHI AAYE NASHA, AAJ AISE JHOOM from 1:42 to 1:49, followed by wicked bazz funky sound from 1:49 to 2:00 to give it a Dubstep mash up.

From 2:01 onwards, it appears as if the people in the club are starting and planning to become rowdy.

Between mukhda & 1st stanza, the distorted desperation plea Arabian alaap along with grand pot echo effect from 2:13 to 2:18 is joined in by off-da-hook beat effect and horn from 2:19 to 2:22 that depicts a Kabeela setting and gets the listener into da zone as if they are back again swaying on a camel, followed by wicked naughty cheeky seductive yell and quick belly shake effect 2:22 to 2:23 that messes with the mind, bhaut dimag kharaab karta hai.

1st stanza

Himesh - the composer goes old age 70-80s era for the compositional pattern of lines from 2:24 to 2:42

Auto Tune twist in Himesh's line GUSTHAKIYAN NA HO KAM from 2:28 to 2:29 gives a drunk tone effect.

Himesh's line, KO-OO-OO-OO (prolonged descending twist) from 2:42 to 2:44 is inspired from the line  in AANKH VICH CHEHRA from APNE.

With the arrival of the additional beat from 4:15 onwards, it appears that all hell has broken loose in the club whereby people have gone totally rowdy and throwing chairs around while swinging uncontrollably and senselessly under the intoxication of drinks, whereby the remaining sane people are trying to get out and escape from the club as soon as possible before matters inside get any more worse and out of control.

4. Off-da-hook combo of wicked groovy tune and semi plugged Waltz beat from 1:15 onwards, joined in by distorted desperation plea Arabian alaap.

5. Distorted desperation plea Arabian alaap along with grand pot echo effect from 2:13 to 2:18 joined in by off-da-hook beat effect and horn from 2:19 to 2:22 to depict a Kabeela setting, followed by wicked naughty cheeky seductive yell and quick belly shake effect 2:22 to 2:23 that messes with the mind in between 2nd stanza gap.

Every Night And Day

The whoosh wind effect from 0:34 to 0:38 enhances the build up.

Lulia sings her mukhda portion with mystic vocals.

Between mukhda & 1st stanza, off-da-hook quick fascinating seamless transitional stop start gap between preceeding full on arrangement and unplugged Majestic Angelic airy breezy tune at 1:45 catches the listener's pulse, along with catchy groovy tune pattern that gives great build up rhythm towards the stanza and slowly gets listener into da groove. The quick skip pattern at 1:49 & 1:55 followed by guitar riff at 1:50 & 1:56 catches the listener's pulse.

In the music video, why did they go with remix version instead of original, because the original version was better choice but they wanted to give it a Hip Hop Club feel for the music video. The music video is nothing new, it is the same usual stereotype run of the mill stuff where Himesh is lip singing. Perhaps he could have attempted to dance on some very basic simple Hip Hop steps to have some innovation. The original song should have been used in the music video, not the remix.

My Picks

1. Aap Se Mausiiquii, Soni, Every Night and Day & So Much In Love - TIE

Aap Se Mausiiquii

This song can be termed more of an Unplugged version and that is what it is in essence. The importance and highlight has been given to Himesh's vocals with echo effect which are at the forefront, along with accompanying minimalistic underlying beat and arrangement albeit with instruments that give a grandeur effect in the background that progress the overall slow tempo and heartfelt impact of the song. This song will take time to grow upon the listeners with repeat hears, but will eventually grow big time upon them with a gradual process. Ofcourse, this song could have been made more catchy with a balanced mix of vocal and arrangements, whereby arrangements could be more rhythmic with a proper main beat and along with slightly faster tempo. But then this would have taken away the very essence of the song and the story that it wanted to 'bayaan', in terms of the whole heartfelt feelings and emotions that were expressed with the slow unplugged tempo.

Composition wise it is an unconventional tune but still a Top Tune and Himesh has sung it with heartfelt vocals. The binding chords in the mukhda are Himesh's line, MAUSIQUII (awesome composition note) from 1:13 to 1:16 which is the intermediate connecting line that gives appeal to the whole mukhda hook, and Himesh's line, AAP SE (off-da-hook fulltu vocals, off-da-hook compositional notes whereby mukhda reaches it peak) from 1:16 to 1:19 to fully express underlying inner feelings of lover. In terms of orchestration, the highlights are constant repetitive piano hits throughout the song that depict a sense of time bound urgency, especially the piano hits along with Himesh's intro mukhda lines, Halka Halka Sa, Hai Noor Dil Mein, Saanson Mein Bhi Hai Aahistigui, Beikthari Yeh Keh Rahi Hai, Meri Toh Duniya Bas Aap Hi which cause tremendous build up of the song, the painful emotional violin piece from 0:59 to 1:01 & 3:57 to 3:59, the likeable piano piece in between stanza gap from 2:30 to 2:38 that gives a sense of thehraav and the intermittent grand thunder effect that gives a grandeur feel.

This song could have been more appealing and catchier with the following two things. Firstly, if tempo was slightly faster along with a rhythmic beat (like how it was at Safaigiri awards 2016, even a similar rhythmic beat in Samjho Na Music Video and Aashiq Banaya Aapne Title Trax would be great fit, however repeating beats from other songs should be avoided). Samjho Na in the OST soundtrax is kind of an Unplugged version, but there is a full rhythmic beat in its video version from 0:19 onwards which takes the song to another level. Now imagine the tempo of Aap Se Mausiiquii along with the rhythmic beat in that music video and then what will be the overall effect. Secondly, if the mixing engineer could have lowered the dB decibels of Himesh's vocals for a better balanced mix so that the super high pitched lines SAANSON MEIN BHI HAIN, BEIKTHIYARI, MERI TOH DUNIYA, MERA MANZAR TOH, BAHAAR BAHAAR KE, MERE ANDHAR TOH wouldn't have sounded loud, penetrative and bit harsh (somewhat like Chichora Piya effect) but rather more pleasant. Better mixing of vocals or alternate mic recording could have been considered. With careful consideration and attention to these aspects the overall catchiness and pleasing appeal of the song would have been enhanced and optimized. In other words it is like saying, that this song had so much more potential i.e. with a faster tempo, rhythmic beat and better balanced mixing, this song could have been taken to another unbelievable higher level and to its fullest max potential. A faster rhythmic second alternate version with the abovementioned things could have been a great addition in the soundtrax.

Listening to this song at nite during bedtime with closed eyes gives a feel as if an Astronaut is listening to it whilst slowly spinning in outer space amongst stars and galaxy, the effect of this song is as if 'iska surroor dheere dheere se char ta hai'. This song comes more in the 'klassik' category rather than the 'instant catchy' category, and gutso to Himesh for having guts to open his album with such slow paced song. The pattern of underlying beat i.e. 2 subtle drum hit repetitive pattern is inspired by the underlying hit pattern in Tu Yaad Na Aaye Aisa Koi Din Nahi from Aap Ka Surroor (but the hits were heavier with faster tempo) and Himesh's line MAUSIIIIII (prolonged) - IIII (lower landing note) is inspired from the line FARIYAAAAAAD (prolonged) - AAD (lower landing note) from 3:02 to 3:07 in Saari Saari Raat from Khiladi 786.

After hearing the remix of DJ Chetas (which is quickly becoming my personal fav from all 4 remixes), it can be said that the scale is ideally perfect for remix versions, because in this remix the true catchiness of mukhda portion has come forward. The only thing the mixing engineer could have done is lowered the decibels dB of Himesh's vocals in original, to a point that how it is sounding in DJ Akbar Sami and DJ Chetas version, that's it. Otherwise the scale is fine, now the question is that can the title trax break into the all time Top 5 list, it has a chance because while it is an unconventional tune but still a Top Tune and one can't just instantly put any song in Top 5, it takes careful consideration over time.

It is one of Himesh's most soulful trax that melts and blows away the listener and touches the chords of heart, dil ki taaron koh chu jaata hai. Whether it is a 'Historic' and/or an 'Eternal' song remains to be seen over the period of time, as these two words are very big and need careful consideration before terming any song with them. Also, if it can make it into Himesh's all time Top 5 songs list remains to be seen. One tries to figure out in fascination that how Himesh conceptualized and made this tune. It is easy to make a conventional tune like Naam Hai Tera which is a Top Tune and it will be Chartbuster due to sure shot fixed formula which can be expected from Himesh, but to make an unconventional complex tune like this song and still make it a Top Tune with an unconventional formula and ensure the same Hit result is mind blowing achievement.

If the scale of the original version could have been 1 scale lower, like how he has sung it in lower scale in Safaigiri awards 2016, Chandigarh and Rajkot Concert, then the song could have been on another level. High pitch se utar ke middle octave mein impact zyada aata, as his middle octave vocals in live performances sound quite catchy. I scale lower could be perfect scale for song as it would have made song catchier, and original higher scale causes Himesh's pittch to be quite high, which takes away a bit from the overall listening experience in terms of long term repeat hears, despite being a top tune in terms of overall composition.

in comparison of the scale of Safaigiri awards 2016 and the scale in OST audio version, the scale in this performance is 'slightly lower' and this scale is 'catchier' for the song, as compared to the 'higher scale' in OST. Also, the tempo of song in this song is bit faster which makes it sound catchy.

Rajkot concert - The scale in this performance is ideally perfect for original version. His middle octave vocals sound quite catchy, along with background tune from 0:51 to 0:56, he sings Menu Kehn De in Higher scale as compared to original, and it sounds quite good.

N:B. = Scale comparison, Original version has highest scale, Rajkot concert has lower scale, Safaigiri concert has lowest scale...but most ideally perfect scale from these three is the scale in Rajkot concert.

Soni

The extended mukhda portion is very well thought of and carefully laid out, to give a full mukhda graph in terms of how the five separated lines are interconnected i.e. the first part SONI TERA ZIKRA SONI TERI FIKRA, GAL KOI AUR AATI NAHI which is connected with second part AAKHIYAN DE CHANNAV SE, DIL DE PUNJAB SE which is connected with third part ISHQ HULAARE which is connected with fourth part O SONIYE which is connected with the final part CHAL CHAL MERE NAAL which gives the completeness effect to all previous mukhda lines and also completes the whole extended mukhda graph. So there is some great detailing and thought process behind the extended mukhda portion to interconnect it and make it flow in a coherent flow. Stanza portion is also well structured and free flowing. The underlying continuous tune along with Himesh's vocals gives terrific scale, along with terrific raga tune and the History 3 key tune. The lyric, DIL DE PUNJAB SE totally konnekts with the listener.

This song appears to be an unused top stock tune from 2004-2005 pre ABA era which was used now with a different treatment by polishing it up with a few tweaks here and there. One could only imagine how a second version of this song would have sounded with typical pre ABA arrangement, love ballad lyrics sung by Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik, along with Jayesh Gandhi's vocals on the lines CHAL CHAL MERE NAAL. It would be something quite catchy. Due to the underlying beat and the way the some flows, it seems to be going through a journey. The rhythm of this song in terms of tempo is similar to SEENE MEIN DIL from KOI AAP SA. If it could be a Duet song with female voice, then it could have gone to another higher level and it could easily have been included in the soundtrax of Sultan or Apne.

Waise dekha jaaye agar yeh gaana 2003-2005 mein record hota toh Udit Narayan, Sonu Nigam aur Kumar Sanu shortlist hote, aur final selection most likely Udit ka hota. Now, in today's times imagining a duet version of Soni in Udit and Alka's vocals takes straight back to pre ABA era. Some of the best lines are the intro lines in unplugged mode, SONI TERA ZIKRA, SONI TERI FIKRA, GAL KOI AUR MENU (wins over the listener) AATI NAHI...AAKHIYAAN DE CHANNAV SE, DIL DE PUNJAB SE (heartfelt naarebaazi slogan based singing)...SONI MERI SONI TU (wins over the listener) from start to 0:22

Every Night And Day

It is a modern contemporary new age song. Lulia Vantur's portions are the 'build up' part and Himesh's portions delivers the killer punch impact. Though some may argue that Himesh has pleased and oblidged Salman by roping in Lulia Vantur, but the fact is that her voice is ideal for this song. She sings with a fuller mystic vocals as opposed to Himesh's sharp knife edge Sufi Rwak vocals, and this contrast works for ths song. Best part in song is Himesh's lines, AA GAYE HO ZINDAGI MEIN BANKE RAZDAAN, QAYAMAT SE PEHLE NA TOOTE YEH YAARIYAAN from 2:20 to 2:31 & 3:33 to 3:44 with his off-da-hook sharp knife edge Sufi Rwak Kashish vocals along with combo of underlying new age rhythmic Waltz beat with 'perfectly ideal best possible' off-da-hook rhythmic beat pattern to enhance the vocal impact and to deliver the KILL effect and KILLER punch that gets listeners into da zone and makes them completely feel it after Lulia Vantur's build up lines. This song cannot be enjoyed at low volume. However, the song has quite pedestrian ordinary build up lyrics like, Tu Hi Bataa...Yeh Kya Ho Raha Hai which don't make that much of sense and take away from the overall impact, appeal, flow and direction of the song.

Lulia Vantur is a lovely and sporting person with good nature. Thanks to Salman Bhai because of which it was possible for Himesh to rope her to sing this song because it was her who hummed the intro lines of Teri Meri to Himesh over the phone, and he liked her voice after which he offered her this song as it was suitable for her voice. When Lulia Vantur arrived in India during Sultan promotions, there was a video called 'why Lulia has distanced herself from the world' where she always used to shy away from camera to avoid charcha and link up news with Salman Khan, who also avoided to make public appearances with her. Then she was offered Every Night And Day and it was ideal platform to come out of shell and make independent appearances without Salman, to get RuBaRu with aam junta. Now after appearing on The Kapil Sharma Show, Stardust and Umang 2017, she has become bindaas and confident, thanks to Himesh bhai.

So Much In Love

It is the most novel song in the album in terms of composition, arrangement, singing and the overall treatment. Essentially this song can be called a House Mix because such is the treatment given to it in terms of arrangement. The compositional pattern is unconventional, new age, effective and it is complimented with kick@$$ electrifying arragement and Himesh's kashish vocals with sugar coated Auto Tune effect that strikes a chord. The continuous extended vibrant metallic guitar at start is a bit harsh and penetrating. It could have been kept lower or even perhaps a different beginning could have been used as the metallic guitar gives a wrong impression that it is going to be a full on hard core Rock On based song, which is not the case at all since it is House Trance Electro Mix.

2. Teri Arziyaan & Menu Kehn De - TIE

Teri Arziyaan

Best part in song is the mukhda hook line TERE NAAM SE MERI AARZIYAN, TERI AARZIYAN...TU NAHI JAHAAN, TU WAHAAN BHI SAATH HAI along with the combo of underlying heavy drum hit pattern and raw matka hit pattern that catches the listener's pulse. Awesome heartfelt mukhda lyrics KABHI HO SAKA NA ME, TERE ISHQ SE RIHAA...TERE BAAD HAR GHADI, TERE SAATH MEIN RAHAA leave the listener gutted and heavy sighed, followed by mukhda hook lyrics  TERE NAAM SE MERI AARZIYAN...that give the ehsaas felt by the estranged lover who is amidst a musical journey to find his love. The song builds up tremendously with guitar riffs and raw matka hit pattern that catches the listener's pulse, followed by catchy theme piece with off-da-hook halke se feel instrumental twist. Catchy emotional feel tune in between 2nd stanza gap.

If this song could have been a Duet and these lines...Kabhi Ho Saki Na Mein, Tere Ishq Se Riha...Teri Marziyan, Meri Marziyan...were sung in Alka Yagnik's high pitch (Kitna Pyar Karte Hain Sanam - Banaras classical style), or Sunithi Chauhan low pitch or Tanhaiyaan Unplugged mode, or Harshdeep Kaur (Afreen - Kajraare mode)...then this song could have gone to an altogether higher level. The problem with solo (male or female) songs is that no matter how great compositions they may be, at times they can tend to be one dimensional...whereby their Duet version makes them reach their full potential and adds that missing dynamic and variation to the song.

Menu Kehn De

It has a free flowing pattern and rhythm, with new age orchestration. The combo of free flowing new age orchestration and Himesh's heartfelt vocals gets the listener into a freeflowing groove and makes for an overall likeable listening experience. Composition wise it has a sense of Deja-Vu feeling but nevertheless despite this fact it is still quite likeable. It can be said that in this song Himesh has excelled in the singing and orchestration aspect, more than the composition aspect whereby the singing and orchestration has enhanced the appeal of composition. The selection of underlying new age beat and topping it up with wicked techno guitar riffs and phone line tone pattern has boosted the composition to a higher level. It is a song that will keep on growing on the listener upon repeat hears. Himesh has considered the modern sensibilities in terms of giving it a new age Gen Y Punjabi trax flavor in terms of arrangement and retaining the emotions of youth listener with the lyrics, tempo, overall mood and singing it with a Ghazal based sharaayana andaz in stanza portions to enhance the feelings. Infact, this kind of overall template of song whereby orchestration is new age, tempo is on slower side and free flowing and lyrics touch the sentiment of youth, is reminiscant of the new age Punjabi pop scene in the independant album circuit.

Best part in song is Himesh's off-da-hook singing in lines, AAKHIYON SE NADIYAN SAARI AAJ (off-da-hook halke se feel singing) BEHN DE from 1:38 to 1:43 that win over the listener, followed by the combo of off-da-hook whoosh effect, off-da-hook quick hit pattern and wicked techno riff from 1:44 to 1:46 in unplugged mode. Best stanza line's are Himesh's line in 1st stanza, BAS TU HI REH GAYI YAAR (awesome singing with awesome profound Sufi Rwak twist) from 3:01 to 3:04 followed by the combo of off-da-hook whoosh effect, off-da-hook quick hit pattern, and wicked techno riff from 3:05 to 3:08 in unplugged mode, and Himesh's line in 2nd stanza, CHAHE KITNE SHIKWE HAIN, CHAHE KITNE BHI GILE HAIN (awesome singing gets listeners into da zone and makes them feel it) from 4:16 to 4:22, REHNA HAI TERE SAATH (awesome naarebaazi slogan based singing with awesome profound Sufi Rwak twist) from 4:23 to 4:27 followed by the combo of off-da-hook whoosh effect, off-da-hook quick hit pattern and wicked techno riff from 4:28 to 4:29 in unplugged mode.

In terms of composition, Himesh has merged simple free flowing composition (for build up) with complex Sufi Rwak composition (for ending notes) i.e. in mukhda...Har Waqt Dil Mein Teri Maujudgi hai, Tu Hi Mohabbat Meri Tu Mausiiquii Hai...Menu Kehn De, Kehn De...Menu Dav Mera Dil Kol Rehnde (simple free flowing composition for build up) which is merged with Aakhiyon Se Nadiyan Saari, Aaj Behn De (complex Sufi Rwak composition for ending notes). In stanza, Socha Tha Dhal Gaye Mausam Woh Seele Seele, Choo ke Joh Dekhi Palkein Haath Hue Geele (simple free flowing composition for build up) which is merged with Bas Tu Hi Reh Gayi Yaar (complex Sufi Rwak composition for ending notes). Aap Se Mausiiquii is a superior track than this song in terms of composition.

3. Tonight & Thuglife - TIE

Tonight

The initial impression of song is as if it is ordinary but it grows upon the listener with repeat hearings and becomes somewhat likeable. The song has a nice freeflowing groove. It has a Rwakin kickass underlying beat along with great mixing of Himesh's vocals. The intermittent semi plugged build up throughout the song followed by full on beat, works for the song. The non comprehendo Alienish bansuri is an amusing fare but it will gather the listener's attention. The biggest drawback is that the composition itself is 'ordinary' therefore good orchestration comprising of Rwakin kickass beat and great intermittent buildup, and Himesh's well mixed vocals can prove effective albeit only to an extent. Nevertheless, it is still enjoyable and in the long run this song is better to be danced on at parties. Although it may be nowhere near a top tune, but rather an average ordinary mediocre 'run of the mill' tune in comparison to Himesh's standards but the best aspect of this song is that it brings back that vintage Sufi Rwak era feeling of 06-08 in terms of Himesh's Sufi Rwak compositional pattern and singing style, which reminds of songs like Ishq Kiya Kiya, Lagi Chute Na, Sisak Sisak Ke, Mehfooz, Ulfat. This song will also attract the Arabian listeners due to the Arabian mukhda hookline. Two of the most rwakin kickass free flowing underlying beats with fluctuating bazz sound in Himesh's Sufi Rwak songs are in Lagi Chute Na from Rocky - The Rebel and this song.

Thuglife

The composition pattern of this song is simple deja-vu. The best part of song is DJ NE DEKHO FULL VOLUME KAR DIYA JEE, HO JAA TU HO JAA TU INSPIRE PIYA JI from 0:28 & 1:08 onwards, followed by gradually building Trance tune from 0:29 & 1:11 onwards along with accelerating beats until 0:36 & 1:16, Though one does not really mind it as such, but the issue with orchestration is that it is a Bhaji Paw mix of contrasting Interior Indian Circuit (tabla beats, pots and pans effect in stanzas) and Western (bazooka horn and combo of Cabana styled feel good peppy theme piece, rhythmic beat and DJ vocals THROW YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR). So this inconsistency hampers the overall mood in terms of fully enjoying it, because on one side there is beach side party feel and on the other side there is interior small town party feel. Himesh's mukhda hook line, HO JAYE HO JAYE JI DANCE FLOOR PE DARING BAAZI is simple, well structured with a Deja-vu feel, but still actually likeable as it has a feel good groove. The combo of feel good tune, rhythmic beat and DJ vocals THROW YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR from 0:50 to 0:58 & 1:29 to 1:38 gets the listener into a likeable swaying groove as if a beach party is going on. This song can be enjoyed whilst being in bindaas dance mood.

4. Trippy & Couple Photo

Trippy

This song has one of the most wicked cult opening intros. The composition is simple deja-vu but still kinda effective along with the orchestration, lyrics and overall treatment. When heard initially, chances are that the listener may wonder 'what is this' and find the song unappealing, thinking that Himesh's line, JHOOM from 0:46 to 0:51 which is DJ manipulated by gradually increasing higher octaves along with accelerating beats, followed by wicked bazz funky sound from 0:52 to 1:02 to give a cool edge Dubstep mash has badly backfired and that there is hardly and melody, and the arrangement effects are basically noise that get onto the listeners nerves. But after few repeat hears, the listener will start to get the groovy hang of the song and once they are in its Trippy zone, then they will start to gradually appreciate it and the underlying idea and motive to make such a song. It is a defying rebellious song representing the rowdy youth generation who want to 'do whatever you want to do man. Best part in the song is off-da-hook arrangement from start to 0:23, 1:15 to 1:26, 1:43 to 1:48 & 2:12 to 2:23

The music video has so many flashes and rotating close up angles that it can almost make the viewer trip while viewing it. They have kinda wasted the model because many people will not see the whole video due to constant flashes. A few are understandable, but almost every frame?! It is of the opinion that Himesh ka mic lekar aur yo yo lip singing pose waale music videos ab bhaut hua, its time to get creative...jumping in Tonight and also Trippy, there was a time when a story was told in his videos, like Samjho Na, Tera Surroor, Naam Hai Tera, Tujhe Bhool Jaana, even ASM title trax. Just lip syncing with mic in a club has become pretty uncreative and stereotype, even if they wan't to go for a club concept, atleast there should be an extra effort to make him dance, with some cool trendy and easy to do dance steps (not like Hrithik Roshan, Shahid Kapoor, Tiger Shroff dance steps with a twist but like some of easy steps in Salman Khan's flims).



Waluscha De Sousa's kamsin aadayein from 2:26 to 2:28

Couple Photo

It is an easy going fun filled song with a Deja vu feel that will take time to grow upon the listener with repeat hears. If this song could be re dubbed in Bhojpuri then it could create a bit of stir in Bhojpuri party scene. Main interesting element in this song is the lyric Couple Photo Tu Upload Kar Facebook Pe Piya, which the young couples with zeal for social media and enthausism for clicking and uploading photos will recall this line during the snapping and uploading process, thinking about the amount of likes they will get afterwards. Selection of female singer Neha Kakkar is ideal for song as her voice adds a rustic earthly zing to it.

Himesh may have opted for Neha Kakkar as female playback for Trippy and Couple Photo, as her recent songs clocked up over 50+ million views, like Kaala Chashma and Mile Ho Tum Reprise.

Remixes



AAP SE MAUSIIQUII TITLE TRAX

Aap Se Mausiiquii International Remix by DJ Chetas

.be

The tempo of the song is kept intact and same as original.

The slow gradual build up from 0:25 to 0:53 with likeable tune is nice.

Nice bottletop pop echo effect at 0:36

It keeps on building up from 0:55 onwards until the point when the beats start accelerating from 1:07 onwards.

The techno tune that causes the build up to reach its culmination and peak from 1:19 onwards is likeable and it is tremendous build up until this point.

The remix beat kicks in from 1:32 onwards whereby song gains momentum.

Himesh's line, AAP (off-da-hook vocals) at 1:45

The remix is rwakin and in full form with the combo of remix beat and likeable techno tune from 1:47 onwards. Despite the slow tempo of vocals, the overall rhythm is great along with remix beat and gets listener into da zone to feel it.

Between stanza gap, the piano portion in unplugged mode could have been scrapped and avoided as the momentum of remix comes to a sudden halt. Ideally, a beat should not really stop in between since that will not remain a remix that can be played as a dance trax in club as the overall essence of being a remix is diminished.

Stanza

Nice bottletop pop echo effect at 2:30

Proceedings take a chill pill and nostalgic from 2:31 to 3:13 as momentum slows down, but it is understantable to give this kind of treatment in terms of beat, as the individual tempo of individual portions cannot be increased in between the song.

The beat effect and tempo of vocals from 3:01 to 3:14 is as if the listener is stuck in a time lapse.

The remix picks up again with gradual build up from 3:15 onwards with likeable tune and gets listener slowly back again into da groove.

The build up continues with heavy hits from 3:52 onwards that keep on gradually accelerating.

Himesh's line, SEEEE (off-da-hook prodound twist) at 3:52 sounds catchier in this remix as compared to original version.

Himesh's unplugged line, AAP (off-da-hook soulful vocals konnekt with listener) from 4:05 to 4:06

Once again the remix is in full form and Rwakin from 4:06 onwards with arrival of remix beat and techno tune.

This remix also has quite a good balanced mix of Himesh's vocals which is lowered as compared to the original verison.

The hinderance in this remix is the disruption of momentum from stanza gap onwards until the whole stanza is over. To try and preserve the momentum as much as possible in given circumstances, the piano portion in between stanza gap could have been removed.

Aap Se Mausiiquii Tropical Remix



Tempo of song is increased.

The mix of Himesh's vocals from start to 0:25 is loud just as original version.

Nice guitar riff from 0:12 to 0:13

The build up from start to 0:27 is great with whoosh effect and new age key effect.

Off-da-hook remix beat pattern kicks in from 0:28 onwards and gets listener slowly into the swaying groove whereby the listener feels it.

The piano keys in backdrop are likeable.

DJ Aqeel comes with his own version of remix piece from 1:11 onwards and while one doesn't mind it is such, but questions that perhaps a DJ's main work is to enhance and beef up the song with additional effects, not necessarily creating and inserting their own theme pieces that could mix, interefere and perhaps overpower the original compositional portion. Nevertheless, his theme piece is likeable in the overall mix once the listener gets the hang of it.

DJ Aqeel's theme piece from 1:11 onwards is fascinating and blends in perfectly along with Himesh's mukhda hook line, whereby the listeners imagine themselves swaying their hands sideways in estacy at a Goa beach rave party, hence the remix does full justice to his title of being a 'Tropical' mix.

Stanza

Dj Aqeel gets straight into the stanza without the stanza gap portion, and this is what DJ Chetas should have also done in his remix.

The beat and instrument effect along with piano keys from 1:56 to 2:17 is likeable and gives good build up. Since the overall tempo of song is faster, this portion is more effective than the same portion in DJ Chetas remix.

The portion from 2:18 onwards with the beat effect is likeable.

DJ Aqeel's own theme piece is back from 3:38 onwards and the listener tries to get more accustomed in terms of getting the hang of it in the overall mix. The ending high note at 4:19 is nice.

Himesh's line, AAP (off-da-hook vocals) at 3:58 & 4:01, SEEEE (off-da-hook profound twist) from 3:58 to 3:59 sounds catchier as compared to original version.

Aap Se Mausiiquii House Mix by DJ Akbar Sami



The remix starts with likeable remix beat and subtle techno tune until 0:19

The wicked funky theme piece along with Arabian beat effect from 0:20 to 0:37 doesn't sound in the same scale as the original composition and acts as a hinderance. On the flip side, the listeners can only enjoy this part if they find the comic humor in this off scale tune and smile when it plays.

The remix beat with finger snap effect along with vocals from 1:01 to 1:28 is likeable. Also, the mixing of Himesh's vocals is lowered and it is in perfect balance as compared to original version.

Off-da-hook quick finger snap effect at 1:00

Off-da-hook beat effect 1:18 to 1:19, 1:27 to 1:28 & 1:31 to 1;33

The wicked funky theme piece and Arabian beat is back from 1:30 to 1:51 to play as spoilsport.

Stanza

Likeable beat effect 1:52 to 1:53

The mix of Himesh's vocals from 1:54 onwards sounds good along with the remix beat and subtle techno tune.

The finger snap beat kicks in from 2:13 onwards.

The piano interlude along with vocals from 2:45 to 3:15 is likeable.

The combo of wicked funky theme piece and Arabian beat is back from 3:25 onwards to play as spoilsport.

The remix ends with a distorted sound.

The impact of this remix could have been manifolds without the combo of wicked funky theme piece and Arabian beat from 0:20 to 0:37 and so on throughout the remix. The issue is that why did the DJ include this part, as he has tried to be extra cool here by having an edgy tangent from the main hook line but this experiment has backfired. If this part is overlooked then remaining parts are good and it is a decent remix to hear considering all the remaining portions. It has a really good mix of Himesh's vocals in terms of pleasant listening experience. DJ Akbar Sami and Dj Chetas have the best balanced and lowered mix of Himesh's vocals, as compared to the original version and remaining remixes.

Aap Se Mausiiquii Remix by DJ Kiran Kamath



This remix has the fastest tempo, but actually the tempo has been increased so much that Himesh's profound twists seem forced and artificial.

Off-da-hook drum hit effect from 1:10 to 1:12

DJ Kiran Kamath also decided to come up with her own theme piece from 1:12 onwards, but things get quite messy in orchestration from this point onwards until 1:52 without much impact.

Stanza

The fastened tempo makes the twists in Himesh's lines artificial.

The likeable part in this remix is Himesh's line AAP SE-EE-EE-EE (off-da-hook super quick twists) along with accelerating beats from 2:48 to 2;50, followed by off-da-hook thump beat from 2:50 to  2:52 that gives kill effect.

Aap Se Mausiiquii Remix by DJ Aqeel

It begins with trance tune skip pattern and whoosh wind effect.

Off-da-hook quick Ambient keys in the backdrop from 1:07 to 1:28 that gives awesome scale to Himesh's vocals, and catch the listener's pulse from 1:25 to 1:28

The laidback tune from 1:29 to 1:51 in semi plugged mode makes Himesh's vocals catchy, with emphasis on Himesh's line AAP SE-EE-EE-EE (off-da-hook catchy twist) from 1:29 to 1:31, 1:37 to 1:39, 1:51 to 1:54 & 1:59 to 2:01

Tremendous build up from 1:51 onwards with gradually acceleration hits and quick Ambient keys, joined in by catchy groovy Ambient techno tune from 2:15 onwards whereby the remix pick up steam again and makes the listener feel it.

Car wash sprinkler effect in backdrop from 2:51 to 3:01 & 3:35 to 3:44

Off-da-hook quick Ambient keys are back in the backdrop from 3:37 onwards to give awesome scale to Himesh's vocals.

The laidback tune from 4:13 to 4:34 in semi plugged mode makes Himesh's vocals catchy, with emphasis on Himesh's line AAP SE-EE-EE-EE (off-da-hook catchy twist) from 4:13 to 4:15, 4:20 to 4:22, 4:35 to 4:37 & 4:42 to 4:44

Tremendous build up from 4:35 onwards with gradually acceleration hits and quick Ambient keys, joined in by catchy groovy Ambient techno tune from 4:57 onwards whereby the remix pick up steam again and makes the listener feel it.

Aap Se Mausiiquii reprise

It begins with lovely piano keys, sprinkler effect and theme tune along with finger snaps until 0:20 that gives a starry night feel.

The vibrant fluctuating techno bazz sound along with peppy trance tune and underlying ice break thump echo effect from 0:22 onwards gives a great zing to vocals.

Off-da-hook turbine shut down effect from 1:03 to 1:05 & 1:39 to 1:41

The starry night feel is back from 1:41 to 1:58 upon arrival of lovely piano keys and finger click snaps.

Repetitive Ice slab break echo effect in the backdrop from 2:00 onwards.

The peppy trance tune from 2:09 onwards enhances the vocals.

Vocal skid effect at 3:15 in the prolonged note.

Mixing of Himesh's vocals is great in the whole remix whereby the decibels have been reduced to cut off any loudness and penetration in super high pitched lines.

Ranking

1. International Remix by DJ Chetas, Tropical Remix, Remix by DJ Aqeel & Reprise (TIE)

Remix by DJ Aqeel and International Remix that they enhance the catchiness of mukhda hook line, even more than the original version.

Remix by DJ Chetas - drawback is slowness from stanza gap until near end of stanza that kills the progressive momentum

Tropical Remix by DJ Aqeel - DJ's own theme piece kind of overpowers the original mukhda in overall mix, still one doesn't mind it and it is likeable

2. House Mix by DJ Akbar Sami - combo of wicked funky theme piece and Arabian beat acts as spoilsport

3. Remix by DJ Kiran Kamath - mukhda portion is a messy affair whereby too much is going on simultaneously, but it is the most apt remix to play in clubs.

MENU KEHN DE REMIX

Menu Kehn De Remix by Kiran Kamath

The remix has been given perfectly apt treatment by the DJ, whereby the remix beat really suits the song. But despite this, the original version is better than the remix version.

DJ Kamath's remix of Menu Kehn De is better than his remix of Aap Se Mausiiquii Title Trax.

The original version is way better than the remix.

The remix has an easy going feel good vibe.

TERI ARZIYAAN HOUSE MIX

Sometimes, the remixes act mere as add ons in any soundtrax. But Teri Arziyan Remix takes the original song to a higher level. The remix is equally enjoyable like the original. There is consistenty in the underlying arragement of this remix which preserves the loungish feel, whereby the original version keeps on alternating in between heavy drum hit pattern and Wada Tenu styled fast tabla hit pattern.

The Ambient sound attached to underlying beat from 0:22 onwards is likeable.

Wicked bazz guitar flick at 4:41 in start stop gap.

Great work by DJ Kiran Kamath.

MENU KEHN DE UNPLUGGED

At the initial onset, when the listener reads the credits they wonder why is there a need for an unplugged version. But after listening, there is a realization that it's mood is great for listening it during a quiet evening with thehraav by the terrace.

Subtle bazz sound in backdrop at 0:17, 0:21 & 0:24 causes good build up.

The majestic Angelic sprinkler effect from 0:28 to 0:40 that was also used in TERI YAAD SAATH HAI from TERAA SURROOR 2 is likeable.

The subtle piano interlude keys from 0:45 onwards make the mood likeable.

Verdict

Some people will say that comparisons between Aap Ka Surroor and Aap Se Mausiiquii should not be made as Aap Ka Surroor released 10 years ago and this album is not Aap Ka Surroor 2 but a different title Aap Se Mausiiquii. Some people will say that comparisons ought to be made because it is his second full fledged album as an artiste. I do know that which album is more superior but at this time, lets go with the latter statement and not make a comparison between two albums that released within a gap of 10 years in their different respective eras.

Aap Ka Surroor was the biggest Bestseller album which means it did the highest CD sales ever recorded, youtube views are delusional because they can suggest popularity of a song or album, but can't depict how much money those songs and album made...it is still early days for Aap Se Mausiiquii, but hope that the CD sales from music stores and online digital downloads will be impressive...after all, if a music lover walks into a music store and sees Aap Se Mausiiquii CD on the shelves, they have a good reason to buy a fully loaded album with 25 songs with melodies, peppy enjoyable dance tracks and remixes.

When an album has songs like Aap Se Mausiiquii title trax, Soni, So Much In Love, Every Night And Day, Teri Arziyaan and Menu Kehn De, there is definitely room for experimentation for the remaining songs. However, having said that and also considering the 'Iconic' status of this album brand it is of the view that Himesh could have included better songs that have more recall value over a long time period instead of Tonight, Couple Photo, Trippy and Thug Life that could have found a place in Himesh's other filmy albums at number 4-5 slots.

Usually when an artiste decides to to an album, they have in mind some concept videos which they could not not do in usual filmy albums, so perhaps that's why these abovementioned songs were selected instead as their music videos would be interesting. Or that Himesh wanted to cover a wide spectrum of audience as Tonight (Arabic element), Couple Photo (couple jodis), Thug Life (interior downtowns), Trippy (dance floor). Himesh also experimented in Aap Ka Surroor from track 3 onwards. It is one thing to experiment and include a wide spectrum of music genres, but also another thing to ensure that with an album after 10 gap period, the songs have something special with a level of recall value over extended period of time that keeps the legacy of the whole album brand franchaise intact, which inturn ensures that there is high anticipation and curiosity when the next one releases.

When Amitabh Bachchan unveiled the CD during Aap Se Mausiiquii album launch, he was mighty impressed by the locales when he opened the cover, and he asked Himesh 'where did you shoot all this' and Himesh replied that he shot everything during his concert tours abroad. So it was a very good strategy by Himesh to utilize his tour dates to shoot for his videos and it was very gracious of Big B to come to the occasion.

Composition

Overall composition wise, title trax and soni are the best compositions in album...and to be more effective and for more impact, the title trax needed to be 1 scale lower, soni needed to be a duet...teri arziyaan needed to be duet, Every Night And Day 1 scale higher, Menu Kehn De 1 scale higher, So Much In Love different starting instead of heavy penetrating metal guitar.

Himesh has touched the right chords on quite a number of times:

> Every Night And Day - the catchy Sufi Rwak hook line AA GAYE HO ZINDAGI MEIN BANKE RAZDAAN, QAYAMAT SE PEHLE TOOTE NA YEH YAARIYAN.

> So Much In Love - the catchy intro mukhda line SUBAH KI...RAUNAKEIN...SIYAHIYAN...SHAAM KI...AAYATEIN BAD RAHI (Sufi Rwak composition), SAB TERE NAAM KI (pre ABA composition)

> Teri Aarziyaan - the simple yet catchy mukhda hook TERE NAAM SE MERI AARZIYAN, TERI AARZIYAN followed by TU NAHI JAHAAN, TU WAHAAN BHI SAATH HAI gives the completeness effect.

> Soni - the whole extended mukhda hook and also the pre ABA styled stanzas.

> Aap Se Mausiiquii - the whole song.

Orchestration

> Every Night And Day - underlying new age rhythmic Waltz beat from 2:20 & 3:33 onwards with 'perfectly ideal best possible' off-da-hook rhythmic beat pattern to enhance the vocal impact and to deliver the KILL effect and KILLER punch that gets listeners into da zone and makes them completely feel it. Majestic Angelic airy breezy tune from 0:06 & 1:45 along with a reptetitive groovy tune that causes tremendous build up.

> Soni - underlying continuous tune along with Himesh's vocals gives terrific scale, along with terrific raga tune and the History 3 key tune.

> Teri Aarziyaan - guitar riffs and raw matka hit pattern from 0:46 onwards that catches the listener's pulse at 0:49, 0:52 and so on, followed by catchy theme piece from 0:53 to 1:09, off-da-hook hard drum beat that joins in from 1:28 onwards.

> Trippy - off-da-hook arrangement from start to 0:23, 1:15 to 1:26, 1:43 to 1:48 & 2:12 to 2:23

> Tonight - Rwakin kickass free flowing beat that kicks in from 0:24 onwards along with underlying fluctuating bazz sound.

> So Much In Love - Electric House Mix arrangement.

Singing

> Every Night And Day - Himesh is in Top form as a Sufi Rwak singer. His sharp knife edged vocals have tremendous kashish in the mukhda lines AA GAYE HO ZINDAGI MEIN BANKE RAZDAN, QAYAMAT SE PEHLE TOOTE NA YEH YAARIYAN.

> So Much In Love - the catchy intro mukhda line SUBAH KI...RAUNAKEIN...SIYAHIYAN (off-da-hook Sufi Rwak twist)...SHAAM KI...AAYATEIN BAD RAHI, SAB TERE NAAM KI (off-da-hook halke se feel singing) that wins over the listener. Rwakin Auto Tune slang effect in his lines from 3:58 to 4:04

> Teri Arziyan - Himesh's lines, MERI AARZIYAAN (terrific desperation feel emphasis fariyaad twist) from 1:30 to 1:31, MARZIYAAN (terrific desperation feel emphasis fariyaad twist)from 1:34 to 1:35, WAHAAN (awesome desperation feel emphasis twist) at 1:37, TERE NAAM SE (awesome note variation) at 1:42, He sings with earnst honesty and sincerety to depict the tadap and desperation feel  and hopelessness dejection of the lover. Bhaut shidat se gaaya hai.

> Soni - Himesh's line, DIL DE (off-da-hook Sufi Rwak naarebaazi slogan based singing catches listener's pulse) PUNJAB SE.

> Aap Se Mausiiquii - Himesh's super high pitched intro lines from 0:31 to 0:59 with heartfelt kashish, AAP SE (awesome profound Sufi Rwak twist) from 1:02 to 1:03, AASHIQUI (awesome profound Sufi Rwak twist) from 1:04 to 1:05, MAUSIQUII (awesome profound Sufi Rwak twist) from 1:11 to 1:12, AAP SE (awesome heartfelt vocals with painful kashish) from 1:16 to 1:17, AAP SE (off-da-hook fulltu vocals) from 1:16 to 1:19 to fully express underlying inner feelings of lover, MAUSIQUIII (awesome ghehraayi singing) from 1:40 to 1:42, MAUSIIQUII (awesome prolonged tonal kashish strikes a chord) from 1:42 to 1:49

Neha Kakkar is the ideal choice for Couple Photo, Trippy and Thug life. Lulia Vantur does an awesome job with her mystic vocals in Every Night And Day. It is a great idea to also feature female singers in his album as it adds more variety and dimension to the songs.

Manoj Muntashir has done a great job overall, especially with these outstanding lyrics:

Music Videos
 
Naye videos toh response ke hisab se banenge...9-10m views for first two videos is decent, but 1-2m views for next 2 is a bit underwhelming. Making quality videos is expensive fest. Plus, yt views tell of popularity but not how many CD sales are done, Aap Ka Suroor was an All Time Bestseller. Title Trax 11m views and Menu Kehn De 12m views (decent), Tonight 1.6m views and So Much In Love 1.6m views (average), Jukebox 5 lac views. Going by such stats, the trend of actual CD sales of album can be guessed approx. However, the actual CD sales till date are unknown and may vary. Momentum is like a freight train, steam should never be lost. First 2 songs, the going was good. Momentum was lost from Tonight onwards, firstly Tonight shouldn't have released 3rd as it acted like the speed breaker...and morale of story is that same model should never be repeated for more than one song, because new fresh model in each video creates extra interest and views. After repeating same model for 3 videos, now Trippy has come with new model but the video not cut well. So the release strategy could have been releasing Every Night And Day, Soni or Aarziyaan ahead of Tonight to keep the momentum going. In Soni and Arziyaan, a story could have been told instead of mainly 'jumping jhapaak' in Tonite and Trippy which became stereotype concept. They may have gone ahead for Trippy next coz Neha Kakkar's past few songs Kaala Chashma and Mile Ho Tum Reprise had crossed 50M views.

Any Drawbacks

After few weeks of release, the youtube song jukebox has got around 5+ Lac views and videos released thus far have gotten combined 25+ Million views. Now these are quite normal stats as compared to other albums releasing at this time in this era. So the makers must be contemplating and finding out the reasons why...the album has been doing decently good but has not been 'Red Hot'.

Firstly, now that it has been some time after release, the listeners are listening to this album to find 'lambi race ke ghode' song/s that have an 'evergreen recall' value from a 'long run point' of view, but all they find are some 'decently good' songs. Although listeners are liking and enjoying the songs, but still they are somehow not sustaining to the level of initial hears and somehow that killer impact is missing over the period of time. That overall craze and enthusiasm is lacking somewhere among the listeners for this album as compared to his debut album and that is reflecting in the views thus far. Despite having some really great compositions, some magic is missing from this album, that kind of magic that forces a listener to listen tracks continuously non stop on repeat mode, even after weeks of release. Six songs had potential to go at higher level...1. Title Trax could have had a second version whereby it could be 1 scale lower like how it is in Rajkot concert, prepped up music arrangement like how it is in Safaigiri awards 2016, not unplugged and may be consider making it a Duet. 2. Soni needed to be a Duet with female singer 3. Teri Arziyaan could have been a duet with either Harshdeep Kaur's or Sunithi Chauhan's vocals 4. Every Night And Day could have been shifted to 1 higher scale for more impact. 5. Menu Kehn De could have been shifted to 1 higher scale, like how it is in Rajkot concert. 5. The starting prolonged metallic guitar could have been replaced with another intro in So Much In Love.

Some of the songs are not creating that required impact is because he is mixing high and low pitch together i.e. Soni is nice flowing soothing song in middle octave, but high pitched lines O SONI VE could be avoided, and same thing for Teri Arziyan, which is a nice flowing song in middle octave, but high pitched lines OOO MUJHE HAI IF TU could be avoided, because it spoils the overall pleasant mood these songs. If he could have avoided these high pitched lines and let these songs be in KITNA PYAR KARTE HAIN (Banaras) mode, then more people would take a liking these two songs and their impact could be more. Such subtle things make a huge overall difference to the songs.

Strictly speaking from a very critical point of view for the sake to maintaln and uphold this album's iconic brand and franchaise value, it is of the opinion that songs like Tonight, Couple Photo, Thuglife, Trippy ideally do not belong and have no place in this album, because yaadgaar songs with the calibre of and on the lines of memorable ones like Yahi Hota Hai Pyaar, Dil Tumhare Bina...belong in this album, not Average sounding songs that would be forgotten over a period of time. Infact, Himesh had sung mukhdas of Mujhe Bhool Na Jaana and Bhaut Zyaada Pyaar (his father Vipin ji's composition) in musical reality shows and this album was the ideal platform to release the full versions of both these songs instead.

Secondly, the makers have repeated the same model Alankrita Sahai for three consecutive videos and this tactic cannot really work big time because she is unknown and  there is too much same repetition. Although people are reluctant to work with item number known faces like Sunny Leone, but still some people put those reservations aside just for the sake to reap maximum views, including big stars working in big banner films. Perhaps the makers could have considered featuring her in one of the videos, or trying to rope in some known faces like Urvashi Rautela for upcoming video/s. 

One of the drawback in the songs is 'copy paste' of same mukhda lines with same instruments towards the ending which just extends the songs but doesn't add value or variation. In comparison, a song like ABA, Jhalak Dikhlaka, Tera Suroor had variation in mukhda hook along with variations in instruments towards the ending.

Conclusion

Considering that Himesh - the singer has gone exclusive and only sings limited songs these days, this album is a treat for those who miss his voice and want to hear it more often. The album also has ample Sufi Rwak elements which is quite satisfying for the music lovers of 06-08 era. Songs like Aap Se Mausiiquii, Every Night And Day, Soni, So Much In Love, Teri Aarziyan, Menu Kehn De ensure that the album has good melody and will be lapped by by fans along with being liked by aam audience too. Songs like Trippy, Thuglife, Couple Photo and Tonight can be enjoyed too and danced on.
