1. Saala Khadoos – Singer: Vishal Dadlani – This title track has shades of few songs of this genre, a sporty energetic kind of a genre which Vishal is perfect in justifying with his equally energetic vocals. Although the style is very similar to the last year’s Ziddi Dil (Mary Kom), somehow the track manages to get its own essence. Heard-before. 

2. Jhalli Patakha – Singer: Sunidhi Chauhan – Except for the beats that sound very rhythmic, the song does not have much to offer. The tune is staid and not appealing enough to be enjoyed. Sunidhi too fails to engage. Faces mediocrity. 

3. Dil Ye Ladaku – Singer: Monali Thakur – Santhosh has excelled this one with superb arrangements utilizing Violin fantastically. Also Flute plays a prominent and a beautiful role along with Accordion to make things right in addition to vocal sounds and ofcourse the charm of the leading vocalist. Charming! 

4. Jagaa Khunnas – Singers: Vishal Dadlani, Vijaynarain – A Rock-based track which has been sung and arranged superbly. Santhosh has again used vocal sounds extremely well that works as a catalyst for this high-paced track. Vishal has done a tremendous job here not leaving much option but to like it. Likable track that is set to go well with visuals. 

5. Dhuaan Hai Dhuaan Zindagi – Singer: Kalyani Nair – A melancholic melody that is so beautifully arranged with Violins accompanying Kalyani’s vocals in a terrific way. Santhosh’s melody is so strong that without lyrics, it has potential to drive you emotional. Emotionally beautiful! #WelcomeSong

A decent debut by Santhosh Narayanan in Bollywood.
