When the official trailers for this Akshay Kumar-Anushka Sharma starrer were first aired (alongside Farah Khan's Tees Maar Khan release), one was automatically driven to assume a deep set Punjabi flavor to the music album for Patiala House. It's only once the music is heard that one feels compelled to rethink because of the variety of songs this film will bring forward. Patiala House is a cricketing movie, which revolves around the story of how a son gives up on his dreams for his father. Music composed by Shankar-Eshaan-Loy while lyrics are written by Anvita Dutt Guptan.

Starting off on our review...
'Laung da Lashkara' is the first song of the album, which is well begun at that note. Sung by Jassi, Mahalaxmi Iyer and Hard Kaur, this song is pacey enough to get your feet tapping. As the title suggests, the song is Punjabi in its essence, upped by the electronic beats and nothing short of dance number to stay. Considered to be a fusion bhangra mix, the song is already invading high spots on the charts. So yeh, watch out for this one in the clubs, not long from now!
The remix version of 'Laung da Lashkara' is set at a faster pace than the original. If the parent track is a suggestive dance number, this one is compulsively so! Complimenting it's original version, the remix of 'Laungda Lashkara' manages to keep you hooked to its composition.
With that paced party track behind us, 'Kyun Main Jaagoon' will manage to evoke an entirely different mood. The slow rhythm that heralds it, persists throughout the track, the song manages to stay the same all throughout the track. Sung by Shafqat Amanat Ali, its the kind of lilting composition, touching lyrics and melodious vocal that will take this song places! A hypnotic symphony that keeps you entranced.
The remix version of 'Kyun Main Jaagoon' out-paces its original. While it might not be all that bad to listen to, the emotions and feelings innate to the parent track are lost to the fast beats in this version. Given our way, we vote the primary soundtrack higher.
'Rola Pe Gaya' is next in line after the slow melody of 'Kyun Main Jaagoon', returning to the fast composition and Punjabi styling. The beginning of it is somehow reminiscent of Punjabi tracks heard before. It's only after a minute or so when the pace is raised a few notches, and the beats are amplified with greater overlap. The vocals come from a range of singers - Mahalaxmi Iyer, Shankar Mahadevan, Earl, Hard Kaur, and Master Saleem. And yet, its not the obvious kind of song to build an instant liking for - its the kind that, given the eventual video for it, may just happen to grow on you!
And again comes the remix of 'Rola Pe Gaya' which manages to be yet another faster than the original remix number. Opting to not have the simple Punjabi music which kick-starts the original, this one starts with much more techno messing in the composition, and Hard Kaur's famous rapping. The additions work in favor, and the remix easily outdoes the debatable original.
The alternating continues, and the slow tunes make a comeback with 'Aadat Hai Voh'. Sung by Vishal Dadlani, this one is an unusual song for his general style, given how slow and laid back, it turns out to be. Not the bad way!
A soft composition, 'Baby When You Talk To Me' is the next song in the album. Bringing together the singing duo of Suraj Jagan and Alyssa Mendonsa, this song is very romantic and extremely peppy - the addictive tune of this album. It has a western touch in its composition, which is added to by the occasional in-blend English lyrics. 'Baby When You Talk To Me' is just one of those songs which spark love and make it happen, in real life, if you believe enough!

The remix version for 'Baby When You Talk To Me' is faster, and has more beats, but it only just manages to not let down its original magical version. 
'Tumba Tumba' is the next song which you may picture as a qawali in your mind, going by the musical composition of it. Its not all that though, with interludes of Punjabi beats thrown in. Sung by Hans Raj Hans, 'Tumba Tumba' is easy to miss in the otherwise catchy album.
The last song in the lineup is Aval Allah which is sung by Richa Sharma. Categorically a devotional track, this is the shortest song that is in the album. Going in accordance to its genre the tune for this number is set slow and calming. Richa Sharma breathes devotion and inspiration into the lyrics alright.
The album overall is pretty good to listen too. Music from Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy with lyrics from Anvita Dutt Guptan, manages to give the album a touch of various music forms and compositions.
BollyCurry's favorite: Kyun Main Jaagoon, Laungda Lashkara, Baby When You Talk To Me.
