1. Ziddi Dil – Singer: Vishal Dadlani; Music: Shashi Suman; Lyrics: Prashant Ingole
The album kickoffs with a kickass track that is gaining a decent popularity among youths. It’s a brilliantly composed energetic track that has inspiring lyrics and indefatigable singing. The Rock background infused with Folk arrangements sound atypical. Nobody other than Vishal Dadlani can justify this composition. He has taken it to another level. The tune of the second antara is actually the best part in the song. Dekhe hain aakhon mein, kismat ki aakhen daale, hawa ke kaano mein jaake kahe kismat piddi hai. Honestly, I never had expected for Prashant to write so well. Very catchy by music, very inspirational by lyrics and very energetic by singing.
2. Sukoon Mila – Singer: Arijit Singh; Music: Shivam; Lyrics: Sandeep Singh
You really get sukoon after listening to this track. It’s time for the introduction of the second Indian Idol boy Shivam. It’s a ballad which he has very well composed. Arijit Singh is a perfect choice of these types of ballads. Harmonica and Piano takes off the song and a beautiful piece of Saxophone handles the interlude. The basic melody is quite strong and engages you for a while. Sandeep Singh’s lyrics is a very average effort by him. The same old lines that you have witnessed in hundreds of romantic songs. A lovely ear-friendly ballad.
3. Adhure – Singer: Sunidhi Chauhan; Music: Shashi Suman; Lyrics: Prashant Ingole
When you walk alone towards your dream, a time comes where you find everything adhoora. Incomplete. You ask many questions from life which are mostly unanswered. It’s a song about that struggling period. Applaud from Prashant again. A strange co-incidence is that the starting rhythm is very much similar to that of Tanhaayi from Dil Chahta Hai. It has been garnered with guitar whereas that was the work of techno sound. He has kept simple arrangements to match up with the situation. Sunidhi Chauhan is absolutely marvelous in this track. It’s a special song because it has been sung by a teacher for his student who composed it.
4. Teri Baari – Singer: Mohit Chauhan; Music: Shashi Suman; Lyrics: Prashant Ingole
When you are over with your struggle and you get your first big opportunity, you want to achieve everything at once. Your chance comes. Your baari comes. So you get ready to fly. This is another inspirational track, a little less energetic than Ziddi Dil, still has the power to attract some limited class of listeners. The mukhda has been composed with a great maturity that nobody can guess that it has been composed by a debutante. Must attempt!
5. Saudebaazi – Singer: Arijit Singh; Music: Shashi Suman; Lyrics: Prashant Ingole
It’s a cutely composed track and again Arijit Singh nails this. The hook line Beautiful lage saara jahaan is lyrically weird and musically very average. But the starting of the mukhda has an imaginative cuteness and the lyrics perfectly fit in the tune. He has used a simple Piano piece to begin with. Later, it keeps on turning complex. Hamonica in the interlude and the lastly Accordion that sounds classy, in end of the song. Not an intense ballad. A cute romantic composition.
6. Salaam India – Singers: Vishal Dadlani, Salim Merchant; Music: Shivam; Lyrics: Sandeep Singh
Two established music composers singing for a debutante is a thing to listen. It’s a grand patriotic song that has a lot of energy, thanks to Vishal Dadlani’s vocals again. Some brilliant enthusiastic percussion in the hook line make you exuberant for your patriotism. It starts mildly with Flute and quite smoothly it picks up a dynamic rhythm. Salim has been given the milder part and Vishal the ebullient part. Jab jhuke tere aagey sir, teri god mera ghar, Hai Tujhe Salaam India!
7. Chaoro (Lori) – Singer: Priyanka Chopra; Music: Shashi Suman; Lyrics: Sandeep Singh
The leading lady gets this last song to her credit and she has done a commendable job. Such a mature track by Shashi where he used Flute with Matka in the antara. In the mukhda, he has only used Piano and Guitar to make Priyanka’s vocals comfortable with this melody. Sandeep Singh’s lyrics are a special treat for the listeners. It’s such a peaceful song that you can keep listening on loop without getting bored. Beauty! Priyanka Chopra! Come! Listen!
Mary Kom – A Soundtrack that deals with all aspects of Mary Kom’s life and has a power to be with the listeners for a long time. India Idol’s two products Shashi Suman and Shivam gives an incredibly promising debut. You Can’t Escape a Single Track!
