Desi Kattey is a movie about two friends, who’ve been making guns and accidentally learn shooting. The story is about their journey of how one of them represents India as a shooter in the Olympics and the other joins the under-world. It’s a story of good versus evil, how two pistol manufacturers choose diametrically different fields. So, the plot is quite good. Now everything is dependent on the director. Kailash Kher is the composer and that is the point which makes you a little attentive towards the soundtrack.

Music: Kailash Kher; Lyrics: Kailash Kher; Music Label: Zee Music Company
1. Tak Dhoom – Singers: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Kailash Kher
Kailash Kher being proficient as a singer brings another professional Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. The song is on friendship and has very meaningful lyrics but the name “tak dhoom” deviates from the meaning of the song and has no meaning in itself. Rahat is superb in singing as it is only he who brings the song to a certain level. The arrangement has been done mainly on Harmonium and the percussion used is soothing. Pretty decent though provides nothing new.
2. Albeliya – Singer: Shreya Ghoshal
The techno sound in the background is nothing innovative. It seems like an inexperienced way of building sounds from a software. The tune though impresses a lot. Shreya’s way of rendering the melody is damn applauding. The lyrics inspite of not being written by a professional lyricist, are fantastic. The whole song on techno sounds doesn’t seem to be much impressive. Had it been on some other instrument, it would be nicer. Impressive melody! #WelcomeSong
3. Bas Tum Ho – Singers: Sreekant Krishnamurthy, Akriti Kakkar
This song is unfortunately sounding aged. Although the melody is pretty good, the sound attached to it is very stale. Singers are the highlights actually. Akriti’s attenuated voice manages the first half well and the surprising factor of the song Sreekant does a superb job. His vocals specially in the higher notes are adorable. The sound of percussion makes the rhythm interesting enough to attempt the song. Insincere approach towards the song.
4. Daagh De – Singers: Kailash Kher, M. M. Manasi
Kailash Kher chose the correct song for himself. His vocals fit perfectly in these types of songs. Strangely he has used Ravanhatta which is very unlike of this genre. The tune is very average though we can’t accept much from these type of tracks but still Kailash Kher could have made it more interesting. The poor arrangement is one of the reasons for the song to sound very faded. The Violin part in the end is pretty good though. M.M. Manasi who has been credited hardly has any role. Staid and colorless.
5. Patnewaali (Movie version) / Patnewaali – Singers: Kailash Kher, Rekha Bhardwaj / Hard Kaur, Rekha Bhardwaj
The two versions of the worst song of the album is a torturous effort from the makers. The film version has folksy elements, arrangements mainly being done on Harmonium and Dholak. Kailash Kher is superb with singing. In the other version Hard Kaur too is awesome with her English raps. Rekha Bharawdwaj’s voice though suits the song very well but the song sounds extremely cheap. The composition is itself cheap and Rekha’s vocals have made it cheaper. The line patnewaalu hoon is damn irritating. Do miss it!
Desi Kattey – Kailash Kher was expected to deliver a good engaging soundtrack but he fails miserably, Albeliya rendered by Shreya Ghoshal being an exception.
