Don - V

The music of Farhan Akhtar’s Don is by Shankar Ehsaan and Loy and the lyrics are by Javed Akhtar. Farhan Akhtar has retained two songs from the original Don i.e., Khaike Pan Banaraswala and Yeh Mera Dil and Shanker Ehsaan and Loy have given a jazzed up remixed version of these two songs. So far, they have aired three songs from the film, i.e., Moriya Re (co-inciding with the just concluded Ganesha Festival), the ever-green Yeh Mera Dil and the remixed, re-worded, re-composed and jazzed up Main Hoon Don.

The title track Main Hoon Don has been sung by Shaan. In the original Don, Kishore Kumar had breathed life into the song by his playful singing. Probably keeping this in mind, Shankar Ehsaan and Loy have consciously ensured to stay away from the original soundtrack of Main Hoon Don and have come up with a very stylized and very techno soundtrack. Personally, I like this song and Shaan has done a wonderful job and so have Shankar Ehsaan and Loy.
