Punjabi Wedding
Singers: Benny Dayal, Sunidhi Chauhan
Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya

An energetic track with good blends between Punjabi Bhangra and Pop style genres. The singers deliver an enjoyable rendition and make it an easy listening for everyone! The lyrics speak about the typical Punjabi wedding and the environment in a picturesque manner.

Shake It Like Shammi
Singers: Benny Dayal, Vishal Dadlani
Lyrics: Kumar

A modern take on Rock and Roll styled songs which were so popular during the 60-70s era in Bollywood.  The singers deliver a great performance and making it an entertaining listen!

Drama Queen
Singers: Shreya Ghoshal, Vishal Dadlani
Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya

A party track arrives next with heavy orchestration and percussions throughout. The saarangi touch in the interlude is a new experimentation in the midst of trance beats. The track is a good blend of desi music with modern disco genre.

Singers: Nupur Pant, Shafqat Amanat Ali
Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya

In contrast to the first three racy tracks, a breezy melody arrives now sung brilliantly Shafqat Amanat Ali at his best. The track is essentially a vocalist’s show with great classic rock orchestration. The female singer Nupur Pant gives a good rendition as well. However, the track has nothing new or different to offer.

Singers: Chinmayi Sripada, Shekhar Ravijani
Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya

This beautiful melody has great string section and lilting orchestration.  Earthly rendition by Chinmayi is another huge asset of the song.  Though the track follows the regular pattern of Sufi- Western Major Scale blend, it is unique in its presentation.

Ishq Bulava
Singers: Sanam Puri, Shipra Goyal
Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya

The album comes to an end with a relaxing melody with great orchestration and grand piano touches. The male singer’s rendition is very much of Sonu Nigam’s style. The presence of Harmonica in the interludes gives the track a nostalgic feel.  It is however Shipra Goyal’s voice which makes a lasting impact with her fresh rendition and the beautiful Punjabi flavor she carries.

Verdict: The ballads trump the dance tracks.
( 2.75 / 5.0 )
