1.      Song name :Tu hi rab tu hi dua

Singer :Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Tulsi Kumar

           Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s voice is just magical! Be it “Jiya dhadak dhadak” or “Tere mast mast do nain” his voice makes the song so very romantic and melodious to listen to. This song is no exception! Beautiful wordings accompanied with a tune which people would surely enjoy listening to. It’s the best song in the album.  

2. Song name :Naina re

Singer :Himesh Reshammiya, Shreya Goshal and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan

 The song begins with a heavy nasal voice which can be clearly identified to be Himesh’s. It is Shreya and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s scintillating vocals which lifts the song. The music is soft and mellow, which perfectly matches the context of the situation during which this song is played in the movie. 

3.      Song name :Ishq mein ruswaa

Singer :Anweshaa

The first thing you’ll notice about this song is how beautiful Anweshaa’s voice is. Lyrics aren’t up to the mark and background music is passable. It’s the surreal vocals which will make you want to listen to the entire song.

4.      Song name :Umeed

Singer :Amrita Kak and Shabab Sabri

Begins slow, but soon picks up pace as the fast and upbeat music starts. Amrita’s high pitched voice at certain places in the course of the track is unfortunately the only thing worth listening to! Not a great effort. 

5.      Song name :Lagan Lagi

Singer :Shreya Goshal and Shabab Sabri

When you start listening to this track, you’ll feel it’s Sukhwinder Singh singing it. But Its Shabab’s powerful voice which is quite similar to that of Sukhi’s voice The music of this track has a very Garba and Rajasthani folksy feel to it. Honestly, this track works in some ways and doesn’t work in some other ways. The music is enjoyable, but the lyrics isn’t good enough for people to completely immerse themselves in the song. 

6.      Song name :Tu hi rab tu hi dua (Remix)

Singer :Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Tulsi Kumar

It’s not a bad remix, but if you are one of those people who is not a fan of remixes, then you would like the original track more. 

7.      Song name :Naina re (Remix)

Singer :Himesh Reshammiya, Shreya Goshal and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan

There are some songs which are just not meant to be remixed. This is one of those tracks. Completely spoils the essence of the song. Nope, this one doesn’t work. 

8.      Song name :Naina re (Reprise)

Singer : Himesh Reshammiya, Shreya Goshal and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan

This one is better than the original. It’s a very slow track, so if you don’t like slow songs and prefer a medium or fast paced song, this one is not for you.

9.      Song name : Umeed (Remix)

Singer :Amrita Kak and Shabab Sabri

The tune of the remix is nice but somewhere somehow it just doesn’t go well with this song. You can’t decide which one is worse, the original or the remix. 

10.  Song name :Ishq mein ruswaa

Singer :Anweshaa

A subpar remix. One of the less entertaining tracks. This remix is all over the place and never really takes off.

Verdict : Music, lyrics and vocals are three main essential elements required in equal proportion to make a super hit song. In most of the tracks of this album, only the vocals are impressive. Music and lyrics are not exceptional , except in case of “Tu hi rab tu hi dua” song. Also, the remix of this track is the only remix worth listening to. Clearly, this album has its high points and some disappointing lows. Himesh could have definitely done better.

Overall ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆
