Produced by Anubhav Sinha (Ra.One fame) and directed by Vivek Agnihotri (Hello fame), Zid is an erotic thriller which….okay there’s nothing good that I told you about the movie. So here I go, the music is given by the duo Sharib-Toshi whose last hit was Emotional Fool from Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and the everlasting melody Kabhi Jo Baadal Barse from Jackpot. The highlight of this soundtrack is that the duo has called it their best work. So, now you heard something good, right? Then hear the songs too.

1. Tu Zaroori / Tu Zaroori (Male) – Singers: Sunidhi Chauhan, Sharib Sabri / Sharib Sabri
It starts like an inspirational track, particularly like Ziddi Dil from Mary Kom. As Sunidhi starts with her unnatural but soothing mild vocals, the song starts sounding like a romantic one. Sharib is sounding a bit like Sonu Nigam though not a matter of confusion. Duo has composed a lovable tune, the one which you can hum along easily. Beats are different from the regular romantic tracks. Like Sharib-Toshi’s most romantic tracks, Guitar is the only instrument used in this track. Sharib’s solo version is good though duet is preferable. A lovable composition. #WelcomeSong
2. Saanson Ko – Singer: Arijit Singh
Starts with vibrant electronic Flute but as Arijit begins, you feel like as if you have heard something similar before. Yes, that’s very similar to Main Dhundhne Ko Zamaane Mein from Heartless sung by Arijit only. Later in the lines, Tabla joins. The interlude consists of a good coordination of Flute and Violin and as Arijit begins its antara, you again feel as if…. yes that’s Sharib-Toshi’s own Kabhi Jo Badal Barse’s starting alaap or you can call it its basic tune. The second interlude is filled with Electric Guitar playing for a very short time. Beats are not regular though not interesting. You have heard similar stuffs many times before.
3. Mareez-E-Ishq – Singer: Arijit Singh
The starting line beautifies the mood and as it goes further, it lands you to the same stuff, with unwanted passionate romance, a Violin, a Guitar, and some aggressive beats. Arijit is flawless in this composition. Lyrics is very well written by Shakeel, bringing out tune friendly words which also give nice meaning to the song. The tune could have been made better especially in latter part of the mukhda. Not worth the expectation.
4. Zid – Singer: Sunidhi Chauhan
It starts with a typical haunting sounds which are used in typical Hindi horror songs and background scores. This title track is well made though does not have the capability to attract its listeners as it is limited to a specific genre. Sunidhi does a complete justification with the track and the arrangements are mind blowing, can easily give you goosebumps of horror. It’s really very long, of 6 minute duration due to which in the third antara, the same beats and frightening sound effects get tiresome. A well sung, composed, arranged and written track.
Contrary to what Sharib-Toshi said, Zid is definitely NOT the best from the duo inspite of few lovely elements.
The Final Verdict: OKAY
