Tere Hoke Rahenge
Singers: Arijit Singh
Lyrics: Irshad Kamil

The album begins with a typical breezy solo sung by the ever pleasing Arijit Singh. The neat piano touches and trance like orchestration sets the mood for a groovy solo. The string section is beautifully woven in the midst of recurring rhythm programming. The interludes are well designed with modern electric guitar as well

Dukki Tukki
Singers: Mika Singh
Lyrics: Irshad Kamil

In contrast with the breezy beginning, here arrives a mass number in the voice of Mika Singh. The funky electric guitar blends perfectly with the local percussions and the Punjabi vocals. Usage of trumpets sets the celebration atmosphere in a rightful manner.

Kabhi Ruhani Kabhi Rumani
Singers: Benny Dayal
Lyrics: Irshad Kamil

It is time for a lilting solo with titillating string section and recurring rhythm section. The Sufi styled rhythm is nicely blended to the soulful singing by Benny Dayal. The lovely sitar joins the feast giving a new dimension to this fusion styled track. The rightful piano touches as the track progresses is another highlight of the track.

Namak Paarey
Singers: Anupam Amod, Mamta Sharma
Lyrics: Irshad Kamil

A party styled track with trance orchestration in the midst of desi vocals arrives next. The usage of harmonium in the background for a totally contemporary track is a good experimentation indeed. However, the track doesn’t have much changeovers or surprises for the listener to cherish as it progresses.

Flip Your Collar Back
Singers: Benny Dayal
Lyrics: Irshad Kamil

Another party house mix styled track makes sure the party atmosphere is continued. The mixing is done decently with a good blend of Punjabi vocals and International House Mix orchestration.  A special mention for the rhythm changes in the interludes! 

Tere Hoke Rahengey (Reprise)
Singers: Shweta Pandit
Lyrics: Irshad Kamil

The most laid back composition of the album arrives in unplugged orchestration in the voice of Shwetha Pandit. While the earlier version had mellowed passion, this version has slight confidence and aggression associated with it. Shwetha Pandit, who usually sings in a sweet tone, sang this track with more vigor and energy. 

Verdict: Yuvan Shankar Raja scores it high with the melodies, but doesn’t create the thumping impact with fast paced numbers!
( 2.75 / 5.0 )
