The Bhatt Templates!! (Mr. X – Music Review)

Bhatts are back with another uniquely uncreative stuff which is based on a character with supernatural powers. Not so surprisingly, the music is given by Ankit Tiwari and Jeet Ganguli. As you can expect, the songs are romantic.

1. Tu Jo Hain – Singer: Ankit Tiwari;  Music: Ankit Tiwari;  Lyrics: Mohnish Raza – Extremely typical Ankit Tiwari track which follows all the rules and regulations of autotuning and the tune, although very likable, sounds very similar to all the previous Ankit’s compositions. Lyrics are nice though predictable. The much needed newness is missing.

2. Mr. X – Singers: Mahesh Bhatt, Mili Nair;  Music: Jeet Gannguli;  Lyrics: Rashmi Singh – Mili Nair draws all attention here successfully as there is nothing much in the composition to boast about though Mahesh Bhatt’s voice is well utilized. It’s more of a theme track, a kind of an introduction to the lead character so there isn’t any scope for the lyrics. Still pretty decent effort by Jeet Ganguli. 

3. Saad Shukrana – Singer: Ankit Tiwari;  Music: Ankit Tiwari;  Lyrics: Manoj Muntashir – Now this is too monotonous and too staid to be deserved for repeat listening. In the whole song, Ankit Tiwari shouts with his autotuned voice and spoils the well written lyrics of Manoj Muntashir. Rhythm of the beat is good though very similar to that of Haal-e-Dil (Murder 2).  Can be easily skipped.

4. Alif Se – Singer: Neeti Mohan;  Music: Ankit Tiwari;  Lyrics: Abhendra Kumar Upadhyay – I am glad to hear this song just because Ankit Tiwari tried something different here from his usual style. The hateable fact is that he even autotuned Neeti’s vocals which are not at all sounding good. It’s a catchy number though doesn’t appeal much and very soon you start feeling bored of it. Good enough to be tried.

5. Teri Khushboo (Male) / Teri Khushboo (Female) – Singer: Arijit Singh / Palak Muchhal;  Music: Jeet Gannguli;  Lyrics: Rashmi Singh – The prelude instantly reminds you that of Jeet’s Muskurane Ki Wajah (Citylights). If you are eager to hear the female version, hear it first because once you get aquainted with the male version, the female one won’t be of much interest to you. Jeet has again composed such a beautiful song which is extremely catchy and melodious. Rashmi Singh’s philosophical lyrics connects pretty well. Undoubtedly the best of the album. #WelcomeSong

A soundtrack otherwise getting boring, is well handled by Jeet Ganguli. 

The Final Verdict:  OKAY
