wajah-tum-ho_147849225900The film does have some hauntingly beautiful tracks but the music doesn’t have any variety as four out of the seven songs are remixes of old songs and the rest are different versions of the same songs!

The album begins with the melodious Wajah tum ho composed by Mithoon and sung by Tulsi Kumar and Altamash Faridi. This is the only original composition in the entire album. It is a soothing number and it grows on you. Mithoon has composed the song with finesse and the lounge version of the song opens with a sitar and has a perfect pace. It’s the kind you would hum all day long.

If you are a Kishore Kumar fan, then this song will feel like an ode to the late musical maestro. The evergreen classic, Pal pal dil ke paas, sung by Kishore Kumar and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji, has been recreated into two versions by Abhijit Vaghani.

The first version is sung by Arijit Singh and Tulsi Kumar. We think that adding rap by Neuman Pinto kind of ruined the overall essence of the classic and the makers could have done without it. However, the unplugged version, sung by Armaan Malik, is spot on and eerily similar to the original.

Almost as if paying tribute to Kishore Kumar, the album recreates another evergreen classic, Dil main chhupa loonga. Also sung by Armaan Malik and Tulsi Kumar, it is yet another good track in this film. This song, however, lacks the pace and the peppy energy of the original song.

The only item song in this film featuring Zarine Khan is Maahi ve. Like the previous ones, this one too has been recreated from the original Maahi ve from Kaante, which was sung by Richa Sharma. The remixed version has been sung by Neha Kakkar and most of the lyrics have been changed while the look and feel of the song still give off the same vibe.

 

Verdict: ***
