1. Yeh Fitoor Mera – Singer: Arijit Singh – The title track has a nice Western melody which starts from a very beautifully played Guitar. Arijit owns the melody with his rasping vocals giving the enough grandeur to the melody which Amit has beautified with chorus and the parwardigaara effect.


2. Pashmina – Singer: Amit Trivedi – A quite loving melody which grips you right from the start. Amit has nailed it not just with the composition but with the singing too. This is his one of the best sung songs. Violin has a prominent role along with a lilting Flute that provides this otherwise westernized melody an earthy touch. Hugely impressive melody. #WelcomeSong 


3. Haminastu – Singer: Zeb Bangash – A very different kind of a song having traditional Kashmiri elements and hugely used Drums with Zeb of “Zeb and Haniya” before the mic justifying the intense folksy mood of the track completely.


4. Hone Do Batiyaan – Singers: Nandini Srikar, Zeb Bangash – Along with Drums, another very different kind of melody which Amit has chosen Nandini and Zeb for. It doesn’t appeal at once, instead it takes a little time to get habitual with the melody but once you get habitual, it’s a melody to be loved.


5. Tere Liye – Singers: Sunidhi Chauhan, Jubin Nautiyal – A nice romantic track with terrific lyrics, sung beautifully by Sunidhi and Jubin though Amit would have managed it equally well on mic. With dreamy Violins, the song keeps you engaged thoroughly. 


6. Rangaa Re (Hindi) / Rangaa Re (English) – Singers: Sunidhi Chauhan, Amit Trivedi / Caralisa Monteiro, Amit Trivedi  (English Lyrics: Caralisa Monteiro) – Amit again tries to do some experiment here and mostly succeeds. The song is indeed terrific if not very appealing. Sunidhi does the job superbly and so does Caralisa. Amit remains to be the common ingredient in both the versions and sings with much effort. The best element in this song is the use of techno sounds at end of each stanza which makes it somewhat appealing 


Amit Trivedi goes for both – appeal and experiment, while trying to remain himself, and mostly succeeds in all. 


The Final Verdict: POSSIBLE

The Verdict Order:  DISAGREE < NOT A PROBLEM < OKAY < POSSIBLE < AGREE
