This is yet another typical Himesh Reshammiya fare - pacy, but mundane. The only notable thing is he manages to rope in a number of singers - Alisha Chinoy, K.K., Jaspinder Narula, Kailash Kher, Shaan, Sunidhi Chauhan and Kunal Ganjawala - to lend their voices to the album.

The title song "Aap ki khatir" is sung by - who else but Reshammiya. Basically a situation song, the number has all the elements of Reshammiya - his moans, an overdose of instrumental music and jumps in the pitch.

"I love you for what you are" by K.K. and Alisha Chinoy is an ordinary number with the wordings mostly in English.

The next number, "Meethi meethi batein", sung by Chauhan, Narula and Kher, is a traditional song with a folk element and lots of percussion.

Ganjawala's "Tu hai kamal", though racy, is another routine number.

"Keh do na", by Shaan and Chauhan, is the odd one out in this ordinary album. The singers infuse some energy and melody into the song.

Reshammiya sings "Afsana" and "Tu hi mera" - both lacking in any new elements.

DJ Akbar Sami, in charge of the remix section, fails to ignite the dance floors like he did with "Saara zamana" or "Raat baki".

There is also an unplugged version of the title song with lead actor Akshaye Khanna rendering a few lines.

It's strange that filmmakers are making a beeline for Reshammiya despite his ordinary scores.

In this case, it's Dharmesh Darshan, who was known to prefer Nadeem-Shravan, who had given music for his earlier films "Lootere", "Raja Hindustani", "Haan Maine Bhi Pyaar Kiya" and "Bewafaa".

"Aap Ki Khatir" is repetitive, dull and unimpressive. Reshammiya fails to utilise the talents of the current big names in music, who in turn fail to value add to the composer's sagging fortunes (in terms of quality music).
