What do you expect from the songs of a Salman Khan movie? At least two tapori songs, one extra breezy romantic song and a nautanki song where the lyricist goes mad writing nonsense lyrics and the choreographer loses its originality and lets Salman be the choreographer. But one doesn’t expect three songs sung by Salman Khan himself. Two songs are by Himesh Reshammiya, one by Meet Bros Anjjan and one by Yo Yo Honey Singh.

1. Jumme Ki Raat (Version 1) / Jumme Ki Raat (Version 2) – Singers: Mika Singh, Palak Muchhal / Salman Khan, Palak Muchhal; Music: Himesh Reshammiya; Lyrics: Kumaar, Shabbir Ahmed
This is one of those songs which gets a “hit” tag instantly and the listeners forget it probably after a month. A version sung by Mika would not impress you much and the other by Salman Khan would irritate you much. Palak has an avoidable role as she just has to always be fake Shreya Ghoshal and sing with a voice as thin as she can make it. Tune by Himesh although not very impressive, is quite engaging. Himesh has kept same arrangements in both the versions just having a difference in the starting. The Horns in Mika’s version has a more classy texture while in Salman’s version, it begins abruptly with more than enough energy. Two lyricists were needed for writing this song. This is quite an amazing joke of this year. According to rumors Shabbir Ahmed wasn’t able to write the song after the mukhda so Kumaar came on board and wrote the rest of the song. This rumor can easily be believed by seeing Shabbir Ahmed’s previous performances. Not for class, not for mass, only for wedding and only for a month or two.
2. Hangover – Singers: Salman Khan, Meet Bros Anjjan, Shreya Ghoshal; Music: Meet Bros Anjjan; Lyrics: Kumaar
Surprisingly, Salman’s vocals are sounding very decent in this track. Thanks to Meet Bros Anjjan for that. You can call his voice a distorted sound of Mohit Chauhan’s voice. The composers seem to have done a good amount of work with Salman’s vocals to make it sound comfortable with Shreya Ghoshal. They have done a good use of Violin and the style of Piano is very much similar to that of Himesh Reshammiya. Also, the song is a bit long. It could have been much shorter. The line dil se kabhi na utre is the best in the song. The only thing that is not workable is Kumaar’s forcefully written lyrics. The word Hangover clearly seems to be added without any sense. A good decent romantic track spoiled by the title of the song “Hangover”.
3. Tu Hi Tu (Version 1) / Tu Hi Tu (Reprise) / Tu Hi Tu (Version 2) – Singer: Mohd. Irfan / Neeti Mohan / Salman Khan; Music: Himesh Reshammiya; Lyrics: Mayur Puri
The first version by Mohd. Irfan is ofcourse good because the song is really beautiful. Raaste har jagah sirf tera pata sounds really awesome. It’s a soothing romantic song with a typical Himesh Piano along with the melodious Violin. Somehow Mohd. Irfan’s voice didn’t sound crystal clear this time. However Neeti Mohan in the Reprise version also held the song very well with obviously in a different scale. Lyrics by Mayur Puri is the highlight of this song. The way he has laid the words on Himesh’s tune is damn perfect. Lyrics in antara are also composition oriented and likable. Salman Khan somehow didn’t sound as good as he did in Hangover. Salman makes this composition a little staid so avoid Salman’s version and you are left with the other two.
4. Yaar Naa Miley – Singers: Yo Yo Honey Singh, Jasmine Sandlas; Music: Yo Yo Honey Singh; Lyrics: Yo Yo Honey Singh, Jasmine Sandlas
Honey Singh should stop his discoveries of finding new singers. Whoever this Jasmine Sandlas is, she is simply pathetic. The composition gets included in the list of worst songs by Honey Singh. This singer makes it even worse. Honey Singh has also given her the lead role and kept satisfied himself with the rap. If not tune, beats are always a speciality in a Honey Singh song but it is the first time that his song has disappointed in this department also. One of the worst songs of Yo Yo Honey Singh.
5. Hai Yehi Zindagi (Version 1) / Hai Yehi Zindagi (Version 2) – Singer: Salman Khan / Mohd. Irfan; Music: Meet Bros Anjjan; Lyrics: Kumaar
You can call this a sad version of Hangover as similar traits can be found here specially the line Hangover sung by Shreya Ghoshal. Although there are two version among which one of them is by Salman, you won’t be able to crack much difference in the singing of both the versions. Salman’s voice has strictly been auto tuned. Mohd. Irfan is very much in his original form and sounded quite decent in this beautiful composition by Meet Bros Anjjan. They have used Violin in almost the whole song and style is very much similar to that of Hangover. Kumaar has also written it nicely. Rhythm is beautifully soothing. Definitely the #WelcomeSong.
Kick – This album is filled with numerous versions having just four songs among which three have been sung by Salman Khan himself. His voice in two of them have sounded bad but the one by Meet Bros Anjjan has surprisingly sounded very decent. Overall, Mayur Puri gave the best performance in the whole album as he got just one song to write and he wrote it excellently. No wonder these are Salman Khan film’s songs. Cheap (Jumme Ki Raat), Nonsense (Hangover) and Pathetic (Yaar Naa Miley) but responsibly saved by Himesh Reshammiya’s Tu Hi Tu and Meet Bros Anjjan’s Hai Yehi Zindagi. Better than recent Salman’s film’s albums.
