Subhash Kapoor has planned to take forward his mildly successful franchise Jolly LLB with a sequel with Akshay Kumar replacing Arshad Warsi. Unlike the previous one which had Krsna, the sequel has multi-composers consisting of Manj Musik, Meet Bros, Chirantan Bhatt and Vishal Khurana.

1. Go Pagal – Singers: Raftaar, Nindy Kaur (Additional Vocals: Girish Nakod, Manj Musik); Music: Manj Musik (Co-Composer: Nilesh Patil); Lyrics: Manj Musik, Raftaar – The song so rightly justifies the title or infact the whole lyrics. It’s literally nonsense. Raftaar tries hard and Nindy is avoidable. The only good element in this song is Dholak which gives some sense that it’s a Holi song. Apart from that, the song has nothing to offer. Ingnore!
2. Bawara Mann – Singers: Jubin Nautiyal, Neeti Mohan; Music: Chirantan Bhatt; Lyrics: Junaid Wasi – What a relief of sanity with a Chirantan Bhatt melody that soothes you within seconds. It has really simplistic notes that fluidly carries the song. Jubin sounds good though I was expecting Arijit for this. Neeti should have got more portion to sing. Junaid’s lyrics does complete justice to the mood.
3. Jolly Good Fellow – Singers: Meet Bros (Additional Vocals: Purnima Solanki, Sanchiti Sakat; Rap: Shabbir Ahmed; English Rap: Earl Edgar); Music: Meet Bros; Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed – After a romantic relief, comes another wannabe-humorous track that totally survives on the ready-made nursery rhyme of the same name. Besides those catchy notes of the nursery rhyme, not even a single moment is tolerable enough. Shabbir Ahmed’s rap is horrible and Earl Edgar is definitely avoidable. Yawn!
4. O Re Ranreza (Qawaali) – Singers: Sukhwinder Singh, Murtza Mustafa, Qadir Mustafa; Music: Vishal Khurana; Lyrics: Junaid Wasi – Composing a qawaali is difficult, though it’s disappointing to hear that Vishal, who amazed us in Neerja, didn’t actually take the effort of making it sound different. It has elements you must have heard in almost every filmy qawaali – the music and the vocal arrangements, the lyrics, and the instrumentation. Sukhwinder with Mustafa brothers have really managed to engage by their effective vocals. The way Sukhwinder ends, is the real treat for the listener.
Two worked, two failed, in this album of four songs.
Worth Listening: Bawara Mann, O Re Rangreza (Qawaali)
The Final Verdict: 2/5
