1. Maya Thagni – Singer: Pravesh Mallick – A well-made composition by the duo with noticeable variation in the notes which sounds really interesting. Pravesh delivers exactly what is required in the track. Likable composition.

2. Tetua – Singer: Sukhwinder Singh – A typical Sukhwinder Singh song. This could not have been better. The scope of a good composition is so less in these songs that even if it’s bearable, it’s good. Must be apt for the situation.

3. Joganiya – Singer: Udit Narayan – Surprisingly, quite a groovy track in an absolutely soothing voice, which quite soon manages to engage the listener. It is not a kind of a song that is expected to engage but somehow it does with the help of good recording and fine vocals. Surprisingly good!

4. Dheere Dheere – Singer: Pravesh Mallick – How impressively the song has been sung by Pravesh. The amusing attitude of this song goes exactly as it must have been intentioned by the composers. The arrangements are noteworthy. Highly impressive with such less scope. 

5. Ghanghor Ghana Ghan – Singer: Keerthi Sagathia – With a slight use of Dubstep, the duo quite excitingly glorified this otherwise dry composition which would have been gone unappealing but the track has been handled really well.

6. Najar Tori Raja – Singer: Richa Sharma;  Additional Lyrics: Prakash Jha – The duo has delivered exactly what must have been required. It seems, from the vocals and from the arrangements, that the requirement for the mood of the song has been fulfilled by them. A nice folksy kind of item number that works with the mood if not not otherwise. 

7. Binu Baadar – Singer: Divya Kumar – This song which seems folksy has all the elements to have an impact on the screen with the visuals. Divya’s apt vocals, the folksy mood, and the infusion of EDM beats in between. A likable track, must be effective on screen. 

8. Sanke Hai San San – Singer: Bappi Lahiri – The song is undoubtedly catchy and gets even catchier with those groovy beats but Bappi Lahiri fails to engage though he hardly fails to do that. Again, the arrangements, the instruments remain impressively intact throughout the song.

9. Maai – Singer: Sugandha Date – An emotional song was much needed amidst so many outrageous tracks. Sugandha Date, the little angel from the first season of Indian Idol Junior has done a phenomenal job, handling this mature composition so responsibly. The arrangements are top notch! Endearing! #WelcomeSong

10. Sab Dhan Maati (Radio Mix) / Sab Dhan Maati – Singer: Arijit Singh / Amruta Fadnavis – Another track high on emotional content with moving lyrics by Manoj Muntashir. Arijit, as we all know, sings his heart out along with all the technical beauty in his vocals. Amruta, (get ready for the surprise) is the wife of the chief minister of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis. She proves to be an excellent singer. Her vocals seem absolutely suitable for a song like this. Moving! 

In an album with such low scope for music, Salim-Sulaiman has delivered a soundtrack which is one of their career-best. 

The Final Verdict:  POSSIBLE
