1. Mirzya – Singers: Daler Mehndi, Sain Zahoor, Akhtar Chinnal, Nooran Sisters – With the title track, the album promises hugely by presenting its varied range from instruments to arrangements and ultimately the chorus, which is the best element in the album. Daler Mehndi predominantly leads with his unbelievably high range of vocals. Percussion adds a remarkable charm to the song. Grandeur.
2. Teen Gawah Hain Ishq Ke – Singers: Siddharth Mahadevan, Sain Zahoor – A breezy romantic track that is away from all the cliched structures or melodies. Sain and Siddharth build a great experience along with the chorus which at times give you goosebumps. The track is mostly on acoustic but the arrangements give it a much grander feel. Gulzar’s lyrics impress you the most. Particularly, the line Teen Gawah Hain Ishq Ke, Ek Rab Hai, Ek Tu Aur Main.
3. Chakora – Singers: Mame Khan, Shuchismita Das, Akhtar Chinnal – A traditional folksy track that has a tinge of EDM as percussion. Mame Khan, who has been heard in Coke Studio before, responsibly handles what he is best at, although he sounds very familiar to Shankar Mahadevan. Supported by Suchismita and Akhtar, both were last heard with Pritam in different songs, deliver terrific performances.
4. Aave Re Hitchki – Singers: Mame Khan,Shankar Mahadevan – The rhythmic texture which the song has, is a delight for everyone. Shankar and Mame Khan have pulled the song so flawlessly that it is evident in the song very well. Lyrics metaphorically say a lot which would eventually be more impactful once the film comes. Go for the rhythm!
5. Hota Hai – Singers: Nooran Sisters, Sain Zahoor, Akhtar Chinnal, Daler Mehndi – It’s always a pleasure to hear Nooran Sisters carrying the song with their harmonic energy. I am sure the EDM touch in the beats must have some meaning but I wish if the beats were represented by some instrument with Rajasthani arrangements. The best element in the song is tun-tun-a which the sisters really nailed!
6. Ek Nadi Thi – Singers: Nooran Sisters, K. Mohan – First of all, the melody. The melody is what drives this song, as the arrangements are simply done on Guitars with Claps as rhythm. The melody is so lovable that it keeps you engaged completely. Mohan Kanan’s vocals play a vital role. The melody in his voice sounds even more effective. Plus, Nooran Sisters help in sounding the song not-so-filmy.
7. Doli Re Doli – Singers: Shankar Mahadevan, Mame Khan – What I like about this song in particular is its subtle arrangements having Piano and Trumpet along with soft sounding percussion, all this on a melody that is really praiseworthy. The song is a peaceful melancholy, having Shankar Mahadevan’s voice creating the deserved impact along with Mame Khan who aptly supports.
8. Kaaga – Singer: Kaushiki Chakraborty – A song that creates impact on that very short duration it has. Kaushiki on mic impresses, taking amazing harkats in between. Arrangements are again, something that is worth hearing.
9. Mirzya Theme (Broken Arrows) – Instrumental – A lovely piece which Sarangi in the first half and Flute in the second half predominate.
Mirzya is Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Gulzar at their best.
