Jail, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mughda GodseAfter the success of 'Fashion', Madhur Bhandarkar returns with 'Jail', which stars Neil Nitin Mukesh and Mugdha Godse. And the filmmaker has roped in composer brothers Sharib and Toshi Sabri along with Shamir Tandon to score the music.

The film has only four tracks, but the soundtrack boasts of melodious as well as pacy numbers.

'Bareli ke bazaar mein', which seems to be an item number, is crooned by Sonu Kakkar. It is a confluence of rustic influences with western electronic beats, which to a large extent makes it a song for the masses. It is a fast-paced and energetic number.

The song has a remixed version too, which includes English lyrics as well. This version is average.

Next in line is a devotional number 'Daata sun le' by melody queen Lata Mangeshkar. The very fact that it is sung by the veteran singer, gives the song an edge. Apart from that, it is a soft track and has a soothing effect on the listener.

The song also has a contemporary version, which is not very different from the original - just a little more orchestration in parts.

Then there is 'Milke yun laga', a love ballad that has Sharib behind the mike. It has a strong rock feel and creates an impact.

Finally there is a power-packed song 'Sainya ve'. The song by Toshi sure does start with a bang.

The song has two more versions - one a remix and the other rock.

There is nothing special about the remix version. It just packs in more beats. However, the rock version is promising. It has great musical backing that lifts the song completely.

In short, the album is an appealing mix of slow and fast numbers.

    am not surprised, Lata's songs always leave a mark. Her voice is so immaculate that any song becomes beautiful.
