Everything is fresh and new for this film. A new director, new producer, new production house, and new actors are more than enough to be a reason for making the film go unnoticed. Nowhere I saw the promotions, advertisements, song promos etc and that is how I am reviewing it so late. The are three songs, one by Sandeep Chowta, the other two by Sajjad Ali Chandwani. Besides the three songs, there are three instrumentals which are composed by Amal Malik.

1. Khwaabb – Singer: Sonu Nigam; Music: Sandeep Chowta; Lyrics: Sameer
The album starts with the title track which, just like the film, inspires to achieve our dream. Sonu Nigam has quite comfortably justified the song. Sandeep Chowta has made it fully a Rock song which has the conventional use of Electric Guitars and Drums. It’s quite a long time when Sameer has written a good meaningful song. Although the inspiring lines that he has used are stale and these lines give a heard-before feeling but when you consider it overall, it sounds apt for the song. An average composition, an average lyrics and a kind of track which you have heard many times before.
2. TV Ko Dekh – Singer: Kailash Kher; Music: Sajjad Ali Chandwani; Lyrics: AM Turaz
It’s a typical satirical song which no other voice could have done justice with other than that of Kailash Kher. It is a satire on television as its other name is “idiot box”. AM Turaz who has already attempted such kind of tracks in films like Baat Bann Gayi, Chakravyuh etc, has disappointed this time as the satire is not well defined and clear. Sajjad Ali also has failed to impress as there doesn’t seem to have much hard work in the composition as well as in the arrangements. Avoidable.
3. Shamein – Singers: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Shreya Ghoshal; Music: Sajjad Ali Chandwani; Lyrics: AM Turaz
Whatever disappointment Sajjad Ali and Turaz gave in the previous track is all overcome in this beautiful romantic semi-classical melody. The combo of Rahat and Shreya was once very popular and gave many immortal songs but the combo was absent from the music scene for almost two years. Finally, Sajjad Ali has made this possible. Though it is already known that songs have already gone unnoticed, but otherwise this song is another immortal treat to their kitty. The melody is so charming that it impresses you within seconds and the use of Tabla is fabulous. The mixing didn’t impress me much. It could have been way better and if it had been so, Shreya’s vocals would have given greater effects to the song. Beautiful attempt! #WelcomeSong
Instrumentals – Music: Amal Malik
It’s highly applauding for such a young composer to compose such mature instrumental pieces. Kiran’s Discovery is a beautiful coordination of Flute, Piano and Violin. Each of the instruments has contributed for a wonderful atmosphere. All the three of them remain there in The Final Lap with added percussion and backing vocals by Amal Malik which gives a feel of tragedy. It has been arranged beautifully. The percussion has amazing bass sound which creates greater impact to the ears. The Love Unspoken is comparatively shorter and is a Piano show all the way. It’s really soothing and has a meditative quality.
It’s a very short soundtrack and that quality could have acted in its favor as the listeners would have tried to attempt it once but due to its bad promotions, it has to deal with the “unnoticed” tag. Sandeep Chowta’s performance is very ordinary and Sajjad Ali Chandwani impresses and disappoints in each of the two tracks. Shamein is a beautiful melody which has capability to attract the listeners with condition that it gets noticed soon. However, the showman should be Amal Malik with his three instrumental pieces. A soundtrack which scores more in the instrumentals and disappoints in the songs. Amal Malik’s three instrumental pieces are way ahead than the three songs by Sandeep Chowta and Sajjad Ali Chandwani.
