1. Pyaar Ka Test – Singers: Bappi Lahiri, Kalpana Patowary; Music: Abhishek-Akshay; Lyrics: Manoj Yadav – It’s surprising to see Manoj Yadav writing these lyrics. They are hilarious, in the sense that you get annoyed with the constant use of weird metaphors and still you land up laughing and there’s a constant curiosity of what is going to be metaphorized next. Bappi Lahiri with his heavy vocals capture every song so amazingly. Kalpna is a good choice for the song. A well-intended amusement, mostly due to good writing.
2. Mannerless Majnu – Singer: Sukanya Purkayastha; Music: Abhishek-Akshay; Lyrics: Manoj Yadav – Again, Manoj Yadav’s impressive writing owns the song but it is also shared by the duo’s equally good composition. Arrangements are worth noticing. Sukanya justifies the mood beautifully. She seemed to be having a good sense of the kind of composition it is. Within a minute the song is able to engage the listener.
3. Dimpy De Naal Bhaage Bunty – Singer: Labh Janjua; Music: Abhishek-Akshay; Lyrics: Shellee – So the song must be recorded last year before Labh Janjua passed away. It’s a treat to hear his voice once more. Abhishek-Akshay scores impressively in this track as well. They seem to have quite well captured the mood and pace of the film. Great energy, great rhythm, appropriate arrangements. The composition could have been slightly better, though.
4. Bhaag Milky Bhaag – Singers: Sanam Puri, Sonu Kakkar; Music: Keegan Pinto; Lyrics: Keegan Pinto, Sonal Sehgal – Keegan Pinto enters the album with such an innovative track which has a comical underplay, overlaid by the effective chorus in the bhaag milky part that you land up singing with them. The emotions are well captured and the Guitar strumming in the mukhda is something to listen for. Sanam and Sonu are splendid!
5. Faraar – Singer: Jubin Nautiyal; Music: Keegan Pinto; Lyrics: Keegan Pinto – Keegan’s next track is less impressive. Except for the hook line, faraar ho jayenge, which has so nicely been done, the rest of the song turns out to be below average. Jubin’s singing overpowers anything that is less effective in the song. Lyrics could have been way better, though. The hook line is so appealing that the song, overall, turns out to be good enough to give it a try. It’s definitely going to sound impactful with the visuals.
6. Main Faraar Sa – Singers: Anupam Roy, Hamsika Iyer; Music: Anupam Roy; Lyrics: Tanveer Ghazi – After Piku and Pink, this is Anupam’s third with Shoojit Sircar and he maintains almost the similar sound here. Mukhda gives deja vu of Piku, antara is really impressive. His vocals end up sounding like Amit Trivedi and I guess he can’t help that! It’s good to hear Hamsika after a long time and she has actually got the best portion to sing. A soothing one!
7. Kuch Toh Hai – Singers: Jubin Nautiyal; Music: Anjaana Ankur & Sandeep; Lyrics: Anas Ali Khan – Too much of experimentation in the notes as well as in the instrumentation. Nothing repeats here so by the time you are trying to get acquainted with the song, it ends. Jubin doesn’t help and he cannot, in such cases. Fails to connect.
Abhishek-Akshay and Keegan Pinto come up with some really cool compositions.
Worth Listening: Manerless Majnu, Bhaag Milky Bhaag
The Final Verdict: 3/5
