Kyon Ki: A Bollywood Romance Drama with a Melodious Soundtrack
Kyon Ki is a 2005 Hindi movie directed by Priyadarshan and starring Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Rimi Sen, Jackie Shroff, Sunil Shetty and Om Puri. The movie is a remake of the 1986 Malayalam film Thalavattam, which itself was inspired by the 1975 American film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. The movie revolves around the love story of Anand (Salman Khan), a mentally ill patient, and Dr. Tanvi (Kareena Kapoor), the daughter of the head of the mental asylum where Anand is admitted.
The movie was released on November 2, 2005 and received mixed reviews from critics and audiences. The movie was praised for its performances, especially by Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor, but criticized for its melodramatic plot and excessive length. The movie was a moderate success at the box office, earning about Rs. 25 crore against a budget of Rs. 18 crore.
One of the highlights of the movie was its soundtrack, composed by Himesh Reshammiya and featuring singers like Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik, Kunal Ganjawala, Shaan and Tulsi Kumar. The soundtrack consists of eight songs, ranging from romantic duets to sad solos. The songs were well received by music lovers and became popular on various platforms. The soundtrack album was released by T-Series in MP3 format with a variable bit rate of 320 kbps.
Some of the most popular songs from the soundtrack are:
Kyon Ki Itna Pyar: A romantic song sung by Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik, expressing the love between Anand and Tanvi. The song has a catchy tune and lyrics by Sameer. The song was also made into a video featuring Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor in scenic locations.[^1^]
Dil Keh Raha Hai: A sad song sung by Kunal Ganjawala, depicting the pain of Anand after he is separated from Tanvi. The song has a soulful melody and lyrics by Sameer. The song was also made into a video featuring Salman Khan in a mental asylum.[^2^]
Dil Ke Badle Sanam: A peppy song sung by Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik, showing the playful side of Anand and Tanvi. The song has a lively rhythm and lyrics by Sameer. The song was also made into a video featuring Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor in colorful outfits.[^2^]
The soundtrack album of Kyon Ki is available for download on various websites such as Archive.org[^3^] and Hindiganadownload.com[^2^]. The album can also be streamed online on platforms such as YouTube[^1^] and JustWatch. The album is a must-have for fans of Bollywood music and romance.
Another aspect of the movie that deserves attention is its direction by Priyadarshan, who is known for his comedy films such as Hera Pheri, Hungama and Malamaal Weekly. Priyadarshan tried to explore a different genre with Kyon Ki, which is a serious drama with elements of romance and tragedy. Priyadarshan managed to create a realistic and emotional portrayal of the characters and their situations, using his signature style of cinematography and editing. He also used some comic relief in the form of Sunil Shetty and Rajpal Yadav, who play Anand's friends in the asylum.
Priyadarshan also faced some challenges while making the movie, such as dealing with the censor board and the controversies surrounding the movie. The censor board objected to some scenes in the movie that showed violence and nudity in the asylum, and asked for several cuts and modifications. Priyadarshan agreed to make some changes, but also defended his artistic vision and freedom. The movie also faced some legal issues, as the makers of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest claimed that Kyon Ki was an unauthorized remake of their film. However, Priyadarshan clarified that Kyon Ki was only inspired by the original film and not a copy.
Kyon Ki is a movie that can be appreciated for its sincere attempt to depict a sensitive topic of mental health and love. The movie has its flaws, but also its strengths, such as its performances, music and direction. The movie can be enjoyed by fans of Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor, as well as by those who like emotional dramas with a touch of romance. a474f39169
