The trailers of Kunal Khemu starrer 'Superstar' have failed to catch the attention of the public and so has the album. Composed by Shamir Tandon, the album has to its credit a variety in terms of singers as quite a few new voices have been used. But while newcomers impress, established singers disappoint.

'Aankhon se khwaab rooth kar' boasts of two efficient classical singers, Rekha Bharadwaj and Ustad Sultan Khan, who croon a semi-classical composition with a slight Western bent. It is an above average track whSuperstaren seen from a classical point of view. Though this piece wouldn't impress everyone, it would definitely find fans among those who love this genre.

The first thing that one notices when listening to 'Ajnabi' is the flow of lyrics and poetry that oozes out, courtesy Shabbir Ahmed. And to complement this lyrical flow is the soft strumming of the guitar and newcomer Raaj's vocals. The singer brings something new to the track with his fresh voice but the track won't be missed, if lost.

In spite of featuring two acclaimed singers like Sunidhi Chauhan and Adnan Sami, 'Don't I love or do I love you' doesn't excite much. This hip-hop track, written by Vibha Singh, tries to impress with its base and youthful music but ends up boring you. It's just one of those 'to-be-skipped' tracks.

'Man tu talbat' finally breaks the chain of average or below-average numbers. Rendered by Hamza, this is one of those Bollywood-cum-Arabic tracks where the lyrics are impressive and so is the extravagant music. The song is worth lending an ear to.

'Rafa dafa' is not really a disappointing number, but is pretty lukewarm. Not likely to win many hearts, there seems to be only one thing different about this composition and that is the presence of an array of singers, including a couple of new voices. Shaan and Kunal Ganjawala team up with Amrita Kak, Shaila and Sanjeevani, but it can very conveniently be skipped.

As a whole, the album of 'Superstar' wouldn't find many takers. Except for 'Man tu talbat', it does not offer anything new or different and, hence, would not rake in much money for the makers.
