Music is something that thrills every heart but not every album appeals to the sensibilities of quality music lovers. However, one need not have to be a choosy if the music offered is from a Karan Johar movie. His latest flick Dostana’s music album is out and this Vishal-Shekhar composition is all set to make you rock.

JANE KYUN’ is a lighthearted track embodied with true spirit of friendship. It can be classified as a theme song. The composer Vishal himself comes behind the mike for this song and  he has done a superb job. The simple words by lyricist Anvita Dutt Guptan , conveys the message of friendship and companionship beautifully. The music arrangement for the song done by Vishal – Shekhar is also light, with classical jazz, more of guitar and its variant. The song is a delight to listen. It highlights the kind of friendship two male stars share.

After giving peppy numbers like ‘Lucky boy’ and ‘Small town girl’ in ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’ now the duo Vishal- Shekhar are back with ‘Desi Girl’. The song is incorporated with traditional musical instruments like ‘Dhol, tabla, harmonium’. The song is a fusion treat of western and desi rhythm. Shankar Mahadevan vocal is a unique touch to this song. His high enthusiasm and energy is all enough to make the song hit. We have hunks John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan thrilling with Priyanka">Priyanka Chopra">Priyanka">Priyanka Chopra for this song. The lyricist Kumaar has provided ‘hinglish’ lyrics for the track that are its major highlights.

Peppy numbers are real spice of this album but romantic numbers are the actual flavors. Such a flavor is the song ‘KUCH KUM’. A melodious song sung by Shaan, which will make romantic people fall for it, so that they can express their love. The simple, soothing lyrics of the song makes it more special. Once again Vishal’s writing ability has come up with good composition. This is Vishal- Shekhar’s best romantic number after ‘Main agar kahoon’ from Om shanti Om. The musical arrangement of the song rests on soft piano notes, soft guitaring and drumming.

A breezy romantic song ‘KHABAR NAHI’ is slow and melodious. The soft guitar strums gels best with the composition of the album. The singers Amanat Ali and Vishal Dadlani are the real soul of the song. The usage of English lyrics in between the song makes it more impactful. The mukhda of the song is ‘sufi’ at its heart. This one is a real feast for all people romantic at heart. The composition of the song is equally good.

A cool Punjabi folk number ‘MAA DA LAADLA’ takes you out of dreamy, romantic mood and make you go clamorous. The music and beats of the song are similar to many such folk numbers. However, it’s the usage of ‘crazy frog’s squeaky’ style that makes it different from others and gives it a hilarious touch. The song will keep you rocking till the end. The singer Saleem has sung the song with great zeal. This number is sure to be hit among children and youth.

The last song of the album ‘SHUT UP AND BOUNCE’ is also a rocking number but, if compared to others it is less peppier. It wont keep you keep high throughout but as you reach the climax of the song it picks up pace. Very talented Sunidhi Chauhan sings the song. Her singing style is prowess that can be visualized in every number she sings.

Overall, this fully loaded six songs track is worth listening and will definitely make its way to addition in your favorites.
