By 2005, Himesh Reshammiya has made a big name in the industry for his retro-styled melodious pop compositions. With Aashiq Banaya Aapne, Himesh turns singer for the first time with film music, and he definitely delivers a punchy job here. After winning the Filmfare award for the best Music Director for Tere Naam in 2003, Himesh is back in the limelight with Aashiq Banaya Aapne for which he won the Filmfare award for best playback singer and was nominated for best music director. The highly catchy title track along with the rhythmic "Aap Hi Kashish," sung by Himesh in his high pitched voice, forms the backbone of this hit album. It also boasts the debut of Indian Idol winner Abhijeet Sawant in Bollywood music with the song "Mar Jaawan Mit Jaawan." Akbar Sami appropriately handles the remix job for this impressive offering.
