1. Kuch Parbat Hilaayein / Kuch Parbat Hilaayein (Intimate) – Singer: Arijit Singh / Salim Merchant – It starts off well and becomes quite staid as it proceeds.More melodious should have been the mukhda. In antara things get fine again. Amitabh’s lyrics have a more noticeable quality. Another version, sung by Salim himself is more appealing and sounds less staid because there’s Rock background and the arrangements have unplugged setup.


2. Poori Qaaynaat – Singers: Raj Pandit, Vishal Dadlani – Now this is something that definitely brings you a smile if you’re a music lover waiting for an appealing melody to hit you and penetrate into you with its classically laid notes sung efficiently by Raj Pandit. This has actually been adapted from their own work for Coke Studio @ MTV Season 3. The lyrics and the singers were different. While Raj Pandit replacing Rashid Khan is equally refreshing, Vishal Dadlani who gets a decent supporting portion which provides a fusion angle to the song, is a better replacement for Salim himself. The notes are as effective as Raj Pandit’s singing. One of the most outstanding portions in the song is when Sitar is played. Amitabh Bhattacharya writes another inspiring one.


3. Baabul Mora – Singing: Arijit Singh – It sounds like a vocal prelude when Arijit begins but eventually the whole song turns out to be like that. There’s hardly a percussion, just a one-beat rhythm. The song works mostly because of the beautiful notes and the way Arijit has managed to justify it. Salim-Sulaiman has pulled up their creative strength and come up with a song like this which has a great emotional impact, sonically and cinematically. Comes under the bests of Salim-Sulaiman and Arijit.


Salim-Sulaiman might have reduced their quantity of work too much but they still are not compromising with the quality. 

Worth Listening: Poori Qaaynaat, Baabul Mora

The Final Verdict: 3.5/5
