Gandi Baat
Singers: Kalpana Patowary, Mika Singh
Lyrics: Anupam Amod

This energy filled track gets a new dimension with Mika Singh’s confident singing. The track has a fun filled element along with paced nature making it a right start for the album. The song has a great mass appeal.

Saree Ke Fall Sa
Singers: Antara Mitra, Nakash Aziz
Lyrics: Mayur Puri

The energy continues with this gripping track sung confidently by Nakash Aziz and Antara Mitra. The percussions and rhythm section make the song a sure shot winner right from the beginning of it.  The interludes continue the pace and make the track quite enjoyable.

Dhoka Dhadi
Singers: Arijith Singh, Palak Mucchal
Lyrics: Neelesh Misra

A feel good melody with great string section along with wonderful vocals by Arijith Singh and Palak Mucchal. Though the song sounds familiar in many parts, it carries a different aura- thanks to the lead singers. The jazzy second interlude is another highlight of the song.

Mat Maari
Singers: Kunal Gunjawala, Sunidhi Chauhan
Lyrics: Ashish Pandit

This is an experimental track with rap lyrics for the female vocalist and fun filled singing by the male vocalist. The track carries high energy levels and rock steady pace.  The interludes go at a rocking pace and every instrument is neatly layered – in terms of what the track exactly needs.  Kunal Gunjawala and Sunidhi Chauhan- veteran playback singers deliver the best for this track.

Kattu Katega
Singers: Antara Mitra
Lyrics: Ashish Pandit

A typical north Indian styled item song sung well by Antara Mitra.  The track gets what exactly is needed for an item number- pace, energy, and balance of musical instruments.

Gandi Baat (Film Version)
Singers: Nakash Aziz, Ritu Pathak
Lyrics: Anupam Amod

This version of the first song of the track has better orchestration and layering compared to the original. However, just like the original it falls short during its progress.

Saree Ke Fall Sa (Remix)
Singers: Antara Mitra, Nakash Aziz
Lyrics: Mayur Puri

A trance styled remix for the power packed track from the album is done well for a decent listening.  The layering of loops is done with finesse making it a good remix version.

Verdict: R…Rajkumar exactly delivers what is needed from Pritam and Prabhu Deva combination – an energetic set of songs.
( 2.75 / 5.0 )
