baaghi-5-bhThe action-packed trailer of the Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Baaghi: A Rebel For Love has resulted in high expectations from the film. The anticipation for the film’s music was also quite high, since both actors Shroff (Heropanti) and Kapoor (Aashiqui 2 and Ek Villain) have previously been part of musically hit projects. The soundtrack opens with the romantic track Sab tera composed by Mallik, who has at least one track in most of the hit albums in the industry today. Mallik has retained the basic Bollywood flavour and the song has a pleasant melody. The song also has Shraddha Kapoor coming on board as the playback singer. The husky vocals of the actress-singer complement the tone of the track, with Armaan Malik’s voice taking it several notches higher.

Let’s talk about love is laced with ‘60s charm and it brings back memories of RD Burman-composed tracks. Manj Musik has composed this track keeping in mind the classic, flashy disco traits that were once styled around Shammi Kapoor. Taking into account Shroff’s impeccable dance moves, this song will make for a good music video. The energy of the track brought across by the singing of Raftaar and Neha Kakkar rubs off on listeners, making it a good foot-tapping track. Director Sabbir Khan has written the lyrics of this quirky track.

Straying from the typical Baby doll flavour, Meet Bros has brought a pop flavour to Cham cham, mirroring the popular song Pari hoon main. The composers have kept the Kerala-inspired sounds as the base of their musical arrangements with dandiya-styled orchestration built on it. The song has a throw-in of easily forgettable English verses but Monali Thakur has reflected the energy of the song quite ably and has done complete justice to the track.

Ankit Tiwari has brought his signature compositional style in play for Agar tu hota but unlike other sad songs, this one is upbeat and has a heavy dose of intensity thanks to Tiwari’s vocals. The track rides on the gritty strums of the electric guitar further meddling with Western instruments like the piano and drums.

Arijit Singh’s Girl I need you is yet another offering from Meet Bros. The orchestration for this romantic track has a good mix of Indian and Western instruments like the flute, piano, guitar and drums, to name a few. With this track, the composer duo proves they can create songs of different genres which are a far cry from their signature club-dance numbers. Singh, as always, is at his best and effortlessly brings out the dreamy feel to this track but the English verse of Girl I need you disrupts the melodious trance despite being well executed by Roach Killa.

Verdict: A typical Bollywood album with thankfully no reference to parties or alcohol!
