Over the years, Dharma Productions has offered some great musical chartbusters with their trusted brigade of composers. This time, though, instead of relying on a single composer and a couple of lyricists, Karan Johar went with the current trend and brought multiple musicians on board for Kapoor & Sons. Each song from this four-track album highlights the strength of its respective composer.

The album opens with the recreation of Badshah and Fazilpuria’s 2014 hit song Chull. Recreated by Amaal Mallik, the track has been renamed as Kar gayi chull and has received a great response on social media sites. Although recreated, the song retains its original spark and vigour. Fortunately, Mallik hasn’t changed much on the compositional front and has kept the initial music base intact. The song also has a verse sung by Sukriti and Neha Kakkar.

The tone of the album changes to soft and romantic with Bolna composed by Tanishk Bagchi. The composer of Banno tera swagger fame has kept the music simple and minimal for this track. The simplicity of the musical composition helps the track as it highlights the melodious vocals of Arijit Singh. Asees Kaur joins Singh behind the mic, elevating this song to a far more interesting level.

Amaal Mallik brings back the flavour of Sooraj dooba hai with Buddhu sa mann. The musical composition is a tad similar to his earlier offering but is equally catchy and reflects a cheerful situation in the film. The lyrics by Abhiruchi Chand also do justice to the track.

For the first time, composer Arko Mukherjee goes behind the mic, for the track Saathi rey. The soothing orchestration filled with piano and guitar strums gradually increases in tempo, making it a completely orchestrated piece. Although the track is filled with orchestration, the tone is sombre and Arko’s singing style is a beautiful addition to the number.

The album ends on a high note with Badshah, Benny Dayal and Nucleya offering a dance track Let’s nacho. High on electronica music, the track was earlier featured on Sony Project Resound’s Tamil Fever composed by Dayal and Nucleya. Though at certain points, the number gets chaotic, it makes for a good dance number, complete with the rap from Badshah.

Verdict: Catchy and feel-good tracks.
