`Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na' music releases very much the Aamir Khan style under the hands of mentor Shammi Kapoor. The movie produced by Aamir Khan might just prove to be the perfect launch pad for nephew Imraan Khan. The movie promises more with director Abbas Tyrewala penning down some beautiful lines and with the ace A.R.Rahman at work.

The album opens to some fine guitar beats in complete symphony with the youthful and melodious voice of debutant Rashid Ali supporting the charming looks of yet another debutant Imraan Khan. The track `Kabhi Kabhi Aditi Zindagi' , has already been creating the required buzz with the current promos  and is sure to be remembered as one of the top tracks of the year.

Anupama, Benny Dayal, Blazee, Tanvi, Darshana, Satish Subramanium and Aslam bring in the `Pappu can't dance' number . The song has already had its share of hype thanks to the lyrical links to bollywood hunk Salman Khan. Though Aamir  has cleared the apparent links to Salman by stating that Salman is indeed a better dancer, the audiences may still carry the Salman-Pappu linkage.

Though the track reminds you of Rahman's `Girlfriend `number from `Boys', it fails to make the same impact. The music is loud and calls for all the Pappu's to prove their might. The remix version in indeed racy and the track is set to do well with the ongoing promotion.

`Jaane Tu Mera Kya Hai( Aditi)' has been rendered by yet another newcomer Runa. The lines of this one along with the soft background beats enhanced by the vocals provides for a great track for those lovelorn or solitude seeking personalities.

The male version of the track `Jaane Tu Meri Kya Hai(Jai)' crooned by the brazen Sukwinder Singh grabs you with the very first go. Sukwinder makes you feel for the broken hearted and takes you to just another world.

'Nazrein Milaana Nazrein Churaana' yet again brings in a bunch of talent in the form of Benny Dayal, Satish Chakravarthy, Naresh Iyer, Darshana, Shwetha, Tanvi, Bhargavi, Anupama. The composition is very much like a Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy saga but it just shows you how versatile Rahman can get. The track though isn't the finest around but tends to grow on you after a while. Some good promotion will boost it further.

'Tu Bole Main Boloon', which apparently is the title track of the movie, brings in some beautiful composition enhanced by Rahman's vocals. The lines of the track too draw some attention. The track brings in the western jazz feel and is one of those quietly funny yet romantic numbers that explore the differences between a girl and boy.

'Kahin To Hogi Ho' equates to being exactly what `Pehla Nasha' was to `Joh Jeeta  Wohi Sikandar'. The soulfully power packed track brings forth Rashid Ali to deliver his second splendid number on his debut album. Vasundhra Das provides some back up on the vocals. This one is sure to be a favorite amongst the ones in love or the lovelorn listeners. The serenity just grabs you instantly as the track unveils. As for Rashid Ali , he seems to be Rahman's next Naresh Iyer(who made his mark with `Ru Ba Ru' in `Rang De Basanti').

On the whole, Rahman returns to such youthful campus love story after a hiatus but still proves he's got enough romance running right through. The album backed by Abbas Tyrewala's lyrics provides enough support for his directorial venture. As for Imraan , looks like the music promises the same platform that Uncle Aamir Khan had with `Qayamant Se Qayamat Tak' and `Joh Jeeta Wohi Sikandar'.
