Jasmine Moses D’Souza’s erotic thriller One Night Standfeaturing Sunny Leone may not suit everyone’s taste but the music of the film is definitely massy. Leone has had quite a few chartbusters to her name and the soundtrack of this film doesn’t disappoint either. The six-track album features an assortment of directors.
Kakkar opens the album with a bang, with the composition Do peg maar. The lyrics primarily revolve around ‘daaru’ and ‘party’, catering to the flavour of the film, and Neha Kakkar’s voice stands out. Filled with club and EDM beats, the composer has also brought in a heavy techno base but not once does the composition overpower Kakkar’s lively vocals.
Known for their party songs, this time Meet Bros spring a surprise by first offering a romantic track. Ijazat is easy on the ears and follows the regular slow-paced, minimal composition pattern, focusing on the voice of Arijit Singh. The singer has once again proved that he is a master of romantic melodies.
Meet Bros have also composed Ishq da sutta, sung by Jasmine Sandlas. Once again, Kumaar plays with everyday words in the lyrics, and the composition is restricted to Baby doll-style musical arrangements. The vocals of Sandlas and Meet Bros don’t help either; in fact, the track drowns the dreamy mood built by Ijazat.
Ki kara by Vivek Kar clubs Punjabi vocals with well-paced orchestration. The composition, filled with Western elements, such as the piano, guitar and drums, is quite harmonious and further elevated by Shipra Goyal’s voice which remains the focus of this track.
The tone of the album is maintained by yet another melodious track Le chala, which is easily the standout track of the album. The peaceful, well-orchestrated composition combined with the soulful voice of Jubin Nautiyal and skillfully written lyrics of Manoj Muntashir work well together.
Filled with Western orchestration, the composition is quite powerful in Tum mere. The poetic lyrics by Kumaar are sung flawlessly by Dev Negi, although the singing style might be a tad similar to Le chala.
