Amid the cornucopia of  love triangles, Qayamat is desi version of Sean Connary starrer, 'The Rock'. The film deals with all kind of deadly gangsters and their goons so it doesn't leave much space for Nadeem-Sharvan to weave the magical tunes. But he does saves the grace with couple of songs with this seven song album. The album hits off with seductive "Yaar Pyaar Ho Gaya", sung sensuously by Alisha Chinai, with able support from Abhijeet. The steady drum rhythm and piano backdrop is contrasted by some frenzied light percussion, giving Nadeem-Shravan's tune a much needed face-lift!

"Qayamat Qayamat",  is a title arranged track by Ranjeet Barot and ably sung by Sonu Nigam and (shrilling) Hema Sardesai. The arrangements are more dance orientated this time with a more electronic sound. The rest of the songs are arranged by Nadeem-Shravan regular, Naresh Sharma. The best of which is clearly the peppy, "Mera Dil, Dil Tu Lele". Shaan does a pretyy good job singing it along with Mahalaxmi Iyer. This song actually has repeat value, despite Sameer's insipid lyrics. In fact, the lack of ingenuity and effort on Sameer's part is a major contribution to this album's mediocrity.

"Woh Ladki Bahut Yaad Aati Hai" is a typical Nadeem-Shravan-Sameer song is decently rendered by Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik. The solo version by Kumar Sanu is no more appealing. Abhijeet and Kavita Krishnamurthy display major vocal control in "Dil Chura Liya". Both singers hit the high notes with practiced ease but the track lacks melody, making it sound more like a vocal exercise than a song. 

The overly melodramatic high notes of  "Aitbaar Nahi Karna" make sitting through this number rather taxing. Abhijeet and Sadhana Sargam give excessively emotional performances at the microphone for this bland and forgettable track. Kumar Sanu and Mahalaxmi Iyer attempt a more sedate number in the form of "Mujhe Tumse Mohabbat Hai" which oozes nothjing but banality. Overall Qayamat is an average affair. While the film itself looks promising, only time will tell how it will fare at the Box-Office
