, the Ajay Devgn
and Kareena Kapoor
starer, is all set to open this Independence Day, 15th
sequel to 2011's super hit Singham
is helmed by Rohit Shetty
and there are high expectations all around. The much awaited movie is still
unknown to us, but the music seems to have set the bar for a pretty good show.
With the likes of Arijit Singh
, Jeet Ganguly, Meet Bros Anjjan and quite a few
others contributing, the album is short, but filled with quality music.
The album opens with Arijit Singh
on "Sun Le Zara", a romantic track that shines amidst the fast-paced cop drama. Riding more on
vocals and lyrics, the song starts off slow, but picks up with guitar portions
and finds its rhythm in a semi-rock beat. Audiences may be reminded of another
Jeet Ganguly composed number sung by Singh from CityLights
(2014) therefore hinting that they will definitely rock
The "Singham Returns
Theme" song comes next and it is sung by Mika Singh
alongside Meet Bros
Anjjan. It is a
completely different take on the Ajay-Atul theme from the first movie.
Bros Anjjan have taken the extremely popular track and remade it with
beats, turning it into a fast paced track. However, some may enjoy the
original a tad bit more. The only remix on the album is a remix of this
theme, with added Punjabi
beats to the song. Is it enough to save the track? Well, only the
Another romantic track on the album is "Kuch Toh Hua Hai".
Sung by Ankit Tiwari
and Tulsi Kumar
, it is straightforward, simple and, dare
we say, ordinary. It is nothing new or fresh, and while it is enjoyable, it
lacks the oomph
factor. The track is sway worthy nonetheless
since Tiwari also proved his worth with the music composition.
Yo Yo Honey Singh
lends his vocals to "Aata Majhi Satakli"
alongside Mamta Sharma
. A good beat, some fantastic rapping and hip lyrics are
complemented by the usage of Bajirao Singham's signature dialogue, made popular
in the first film, 'Aata Majhi Satakli'
Sharma's vocals are used perfectly and the song is entertaining. This number
will definitely be heard in parties and clubs soon.
All in all, the album
is pretty decent. There were no supremely high standards for the music, and
what we have gotten has impressed right on the borderline. Short but sweet; the album is surely bound to
work well as the fast-paced cop drama soon hits theatres around us.
