Music Director : Salim-Sulaiman
Vocals : Sonia Sehgal, Sunidhi Chauhan, Salim Merchant, Amitabh Bachchan, Joe Alvares
Lyrics : Irfan Siddique
When the title card reads names like Ben Kingsley, Amitabh Bachchan there is not only a huge hype but also a great expectation about the movie. Directed by Leena Yadav, whose earlier venture was Shabd, the movie revolves around Amitabh, a mathematician who has developed a probability that is applicable to the card game Teen Patti. Thus begins the suspense thriller.

Life Is a Game...
Vocals: Amitabh Bachchan, Sonia Sehgal

If James Bond had a title track in Hindi may be it would sound exactly like 'life is a game'. The song is very sensuous and dramatic. Big B begins the song and comes back many a times in between with his words of wisdom. Sonia takes over from with her English vocals. She has got an amazing voice which is quite enthralling. The Hindi version is also just as good. But somehow Sonia’s English rendition is amazing.

  Teen Patti
Joe Alvares

Yet another Bond like song, so what.. This is something new to Bollywood, so it’s accepted. The tune is lively with good and heavy orchestra. Although the song sounds like one played abroad for casino scenes it’s quite interesting.

Teen Patti Ke Gulam...

Vocals: Salim Merchant

The title song of the movie is quite peppy and upbeat. The song is rich with instruments which sets the mood going. The lyrics talk to you about gambling, greed and money. This song is completely in Hindi unlike the earlier two numbers. The remix version is much peppier because of the fast tempo and beats. One can expect to hear the remix versions at discos.

Intezar Me Chupa Kahin ...

Vocals: Naresh Kamat

The song begins slowly but the voice is very captivating so you continue listening. Slowly the tempo increases dragging you into the song. This number is laced with rock and fusion tunes and beats. Using the electric guitar and drums make the song vibrant… Naresh’s voice is impressive especially his modulations which suit the tunes perfectly adding life to the song.

Neeyat Kharab Hai ...
Sunidhi Chauhan

This sizzling song has two advantages; Sunidhi Chauhan and Mariah. Sunidhi is at her best, impressive and captivating. Mariah is a Brazilian model who has danced to the tunes. Sunidhi’s pitch and modulation take the song to another world. However there is an influence of Spanish music that could work to the advantage as the song hits the dance floor. The remix version has Amitabh Bachan adding a few lines in between. The original version is better though.


Yet again I mention the songs sound like they have emerged from a James Bond movie. There are 5 originals and 3 remix songs in this album. The effort is impressive but could have been better because of the influence of English music. But if you look at the album separately, then the music is good suiting the theme and story perfectly. The songs have an element of suspense, they are sensuous and dark. The music is captivating. However Salim - Sulaiman are good with background scores as well so let’s look forward to see what they have done in the movie.
