album opens up with "Jis Jagah Pe Khatam". With a rather suspenseful
start, the song ends up being an interesting one to listen to, with
Basrur and Mauli Dave working greatly
together to set the vibe for the rest of the album. Despite everything
though, one should keep in mind to play the track loudly to get a feel
of the song, or else it just might not work out. While Pritam tries to
make this a catchy number, there are only certain parts where you might
end up humming the lyrics.
"Jis Jagah Pe
Khatam" also holds a remix version. While it tries to keep up with the
original version, it successfully fails. The remix holds a very fast
pace and the extra beats tend to kill the suspense that the original
version started out with. You might see yourself grooving to this one
more, although, listening wise, you might as well just stick to the
With three different versions of
"Jhoom Jhoom Ta Ja", Ritu Pathak tries her hand at creating a seducing
tone for her version of the song. Although she might not be so
successful, it's not an entire failure either. Siddharth Basrur's
version comes next. The song has an entire change from Ritu's version
with it's clubby vibe. This version is also faster paced than the other
one which makes it a bit more fun to listen to, compelling some foot
tapping to the beats. However, the version that will actually be
featured in the film belongs to Arijit Singh. The reason? Simple.
Arijit's voice seems to have that pull that's needed in the song.
Overall, his version seems like the one you should take a chance at
because it turns out to be the best choice to listen to.
Gayi Tun" is next in the album. Yashita Yashpal attempts to make this a
fun song, and goes along with it to some extent, although it tends to
get out of hand at certain points. There are a few desi beats that come into play at certain points of the song, although they seem unnecessary.
Pathak and Abhishek Bachchan
gather for the fun filled song "Buddhi Do
Bhagwaan (Charlie's Song)". Both try to make the song something catchy
and fun to listen to with the interesting lyrics it contains. The song
turns out to be something that you might want to give a chance to once
in while in, you might just be entertained.
say, the best is always saved for last. In this case, it is "Dil Yeh
Bekarar Kyun Hai" which turns out to be the romantic/love song of the
album. While Mohit Chauhan is the one who starts this song out, Sunidhi
Chauhan eventually joins him making this song the romantic hit that it
is. This is one of those tracks that turns out to be something that you
could listen to quite a few times and not get tired of.
Yeh Bekarar Kyun Hai" also holds a reprise and remix version. The
reprise version has a change of singers and is sung by Nikhil D'Souza
and Priyani Vani. While it doesn't hold the same effect as the original,
this version is also not a bad listen. While the song is a bit faster
paced than the original, Nikhil gets right into the song, giving it the
loving feel and a most definite listen. The remix version of the song
once again has Mohit Chauhan and Shreya Ghosal. While most remixes can
be passed off, the same doesn't apply to this. If anything, it may
actually go hand in hand with the original.
quite interesting to listen to, with a few songs gaining your
loyal worthy-ship. The album definitely deserves at least once
listen throughout, rather than the norm of one skip here and there.
