Starting off the album is
"Badtameez Dil" by Benny Dayal. This number has no pauses, no breaks,
not even time to take a breath for a split second. The lyrics consist,

Next is "Balam Pichkari", shot on the
occasion of Holi and is definitely one meant for discos and parties.
Once you hear it, you will be hooked and there is no turning away from

This track falls somewhere between an upbeat song full of energy and a
slow and melodious song, with some parts crumbling to a
