Stylish, sleek, smooth. Those are just a few of the adjectives that come to mind when one thinks of the upcoming action thriller, Game, and not surprisingly, those very same words come to mind when listening to the music! 
Game stars Abhishek Bachchan, Kangana Ranaut, Sarah-Jane Dias, Boman Irani, and Jimmy Shergill among others. With the film boasting of such an electric star cast, the same can be said of its music - it has a soundtrack that stays perfectly true to the action thriller theme of the movie.
The opening title track "It's A Game" is fittingly sung by Vishal Dadlani. His powerful, gruff baritone gives the song an edginess that may just be difficult for anyone else to pull off. "It's A Game (Reprise)" sung by Sunitha Sarathi is a good listen as well but not up to par with the original.
"Kaun Hai Ajnabi", rendered by Aditi Singh Sharma and KK, comes next on the track list. This particular song keeps the original thriller vibe intact with its mysterious feel and peppy pace. We can safely bet that it has the potential of becoming a big hit with the masses. The remix version of this song is even peppier and has an extra zing that works well.
Following the fun track is "Maine Yeh Kab Socha Tha", a love ballad crooned by Shaan, Loy Mendonsa and Anusha Mani. The beginning strains of the piano are haunting but in no time it instantly grabs your attention and keeps you hooked throughout. This complex track makes you feel like you're falling in love - just as the lyrics state - but in contrast, the orchestration lends an angst-like feel to the number, almost as if danger lurks behind this love. Be warned, you will be hitting the repeat whenever this number comes on!
With Shreya Ghoshal's vocals behind "Mehki Mehki" supported by Kshitij, you'd expect something along the trademark romantic lines. But this track surprisingly turns out to be a jazzy cabaret number that is so chilled out and easy on the ears, it makes you want to forget everything and just jive. The remix of "Mehki Mehki" gladly achieves the same effect but with a faster pace.
Overall, it can be said that this may not be one among SEL's finest, but it is definitely a praiseworthy effort, especially seeing that it does complete justice to the theme of the movie. It also proves to be an engaging listen, which has to be a bonus point.
BollyCurry's favorite: "It's A Game", "Maine Yeh Kab Socha Tha" and "Mehki Mehki"
BollyCurry Rating: 2.5/5
