Lyrics: Neelesh Misra

Now 13B is not that popular but this can become the surprise hit of this season especially after seeing the taut teaser trailer of this thriller. Madhavan plays the protagonist of this movie which is directed by Vikram K Kumar and the music is rendered by Shankar Ehsaan Loy (SEL)trio who has just hit a quiet century with Luck by chance. Will the trio hit another century? Lets check it out

Aasma Odh kar---
  13 B

Vocals: Shankar Mahadevan, Chitra

SEL starts of with a brilliant soothing romantic song sung by Shankar Mahadevan and Chitra. Whether it is the usage of chorus or the change of tracks at the middle with the help of tabla, reminds us of Rahman all through but that is a great compliment to the trio as they are the only people who come even close to the Chennai Mozart.

Oh sexy mama---

Vocals: Baba Sehgal, Anushka Manchanda, Loy

Trendy party song follows with 'Oh sexy mama' sung by Baba Sehgal, Anushka Manchanda and Loy. It is in the same lines of Jhonny Gaddar's 'Move your body', Even the instrumental usage to an extent mirrors the song and this also hits the bulls eye but needs a few extra hearings to come to such a conclusion. The lyrics do go well with the music. A hip hop trendy disco song which is sure to kiss many DJ's hands for a long time now.

Bade se shehar mein---
Vocals: Karthik.

SEL does it again; they take one of their songs and try to make it slow and voila! One more composition. Here SEL takes their Taare Zameen par song and does some patch up work. The song still does work like any other SEL song and the vocals by Karthik does come handy in touching you at the right places. The lyrics are quite poetic but usage of the same words does put one off. An average song!

Sab Khariyat Hai---
Vocals: Shankar Mahadevan.

Sung by Shankar Mahadevan Sab khariyat hai is a happy little song which comes in for a running time of under 2 minutes. It is a decent song with some loud music. If only the music was toned down a little bit the song would have been much more impressive. Cannot wait to see where this song fits in this thriller movie.

13 B - theme---

The theme song is as eerie as it is supposed to be and it can be stated as one of the most impressive theme songs to have come out in a long long time. The instrumental usage is so impressive that it disturbs and makes you want to watch this taut thriller which is exactly what a theme song is supposed to do. So two thumbs up for Indrajit ‘Tubby’ Sharma and Parikshit Parik who is in-charge of tuning the theme song alone. The thrilling music blends so beautifully into a romantic interlude and then back to eeriness perfectly denoting the genre of the movie which is thriller with a tinge of romance.


As per the trend each and every song has a remixed version with the best being "Oh sexy mama". After seeing the trailers there is a possibility that a song or two might not feature in this thriller but let us see. It is not a century by Shankar Ehsaan Loy trio but they come close to hitting one helped largely by Indrajit ‘Tubby’ Sharma and Parikshit Parik with the theme song.
