The title doesn't suggest the theme of the film. The theme line "when death came calling" makes viewers even more perplexed. The name itself suggests that it would be murder mystery and have bleak chances of good healthy melodious music. Nowadays we usually come across with similar titles like '88 Antop Hill' and ' Darna Mana Hai', which confuse the moviegoers and also lose at the box office. 'Tum Se Milke….' is a film with a rather weak star cast, lesser-known stars and a couple of TV stars clubbed with some very ordinary music by lesser-known music director. It has star cast of Rakesh Bapat, Richa Pallod, Yash Tonk etc. Remember Rakesh Bapat who made silver screen debut in 'Tum Bin' with a couple of young cast. Then we have Richa Pallod who has a rather disappointing debut playing opposite to deadly dude Fardeen Khan. This film seems to be a comeback vehicle for both of them. The music of the film is by Daboo Malik, whose presence is not felt in any song.

This album is nothing but old wine in a new bottle. This is surprising that how somebody could tolerate old stuff like this when we have likes of 'Koi Mil Gaya', 'Chalte Chalte' etc. This is a film directed by Jignesh V. Vaishnavi has lyrics by Praveen Bhardwaj and Sanjay Chhel.

The album opens up with a romantic duet song 'Jab Tak Tum Samne Rahoge' sung by Kumar Sanu and Anuradha Paudwal. This song is inspired by music of Nadeem Shravan of early 90s hits like 'Aashiqui' and 'Dil Hai Ke Manta Naheen'. The song is picturized on the beautiful western location. It has been a usual stuff for years, difficult to digest and hard to believe with some rhythm with different words. Kumar Sanu infuses romantic yearning in 'Jab Tak Tum Samne Rahoge'. The song gets replicated in instrumental version. 'Dil Sunta Hai' is a soft, sentimental and romantic song sung by Abhiijit and Anuradha Paudwal. Anuradha once the lucky mascot for Gulshan Kumar of T-Series tries hard to capitalize on her soulful voice but the music is a big let down. Abhijit seems to be cloning Kishore Kumar; his voice is neither penetrative nor fabulous. This song looks like a leftover at a rave party.

Daboo Malik and Sunidhi Chauhan sing the title song of the film. Once again, Daboo Malik fails miserably to reflect or attract attention of listeners towards the theme of the film. The song lacks the pace and continuity of a murder mystery. 'Rafta rafta….' is another song sung by Daboo Malik and Sunidhi Chauhan, and the lyrics are by Sanjay Chhel.

'Kal Hum Jis Se' seems to hold some respect as far as the music is concerned. Better-known Kumar Sanu and Anuradha Paudwal sing this song. Kumar Sanu has excelled in somewhat lesser accepted music album. The album is certainly not up to the taste of new generation. A big let down and a big disappointing show though!
