The King Khan is back with Aziz Mirza and Jatin-Lalit for his latest venture Chalte Chalte. The album hits off with Abhijeet's melodious "Tauba Tumhare Yeh Ishare" along with and Alka Yagnik. It's pretty effective romantic duet you can easily fall in love with. The singers have done full justice to the song. "Chalte Chalte" is next song excellently penned by Javed Akhtar and sung by Abhijeet with the introductory line "Pyar humko bhi hai, Pyar tumko bhi hai, To yeh kya silsile hogaye". Abhijeet's soothing intro is marvelous!

The baton is passed to Aadesh Shrivastava and Sukhwinder Singh for the next track called "Layi Vi Na Gayee". Shrivastava's music has a traditional Punjabi tone to it and, naturally, Singh feels right at home in this lovely composition. Singh magically brings the emotive poetry by Pappu Dhillon and Babu Maan alive and makes your heart skip a beat.

Sonu Nigam sings the next track "Gum Shuda" by Adesh Shrivastava and the things get worse from here. This song can definitely be given a skip if you're not really a die hard Sonu fan. Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik lead the sweet number in Jatin-Lalits's, "Dagariya Chalo". The tune is nothing special but the singers are a treasure to listen to. The popularity of this kind of song really depends on the picturization in the film. A memorable picturization could make this one stand apart from the other songs.

Next in the line is one more number from Adesh called, "Tujhpar Gagan Se". He is joined by Preeti and Pinky this time round. Preeti and Pinky make the intro very enticing with the way they sing the words "kaisi deewangi hai". What follows is a spicy fast-paced track with Singh being supported by a superb chorus. In fact, without the excellent chorus, this number would not be anything to write home about. On first listen, this song might seem like a noisy disruption from the other melodic numbers but it can be quite enjoyable to listen to once you get used to the speedy tune.

"Suno Na Suno Na" is amazingly composed by Srivastva as it sounds exactly like another typical Jatin-Lalit work. Abhijeet pops up to bid adieu to us in the last track in the album. Don't expect to find anything earth shattering here. Once again, Abhijeet's velvety vocals save the day. A treat for Abhijeet and Shah Rukh fans, all in all Chalte Chalte is definitely an above average fare where you can croon to some melodious track from Jatin-Lalit along with few surprises from Adesh Srivastva.
