|Mujhko Teri Zaroorat Hai (Remix)||Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Shrraddha Pandit|
The track reminds us of earlier Salim Merchant tracks – the tracks from BBB and Kurbaan. The traditional Shaadi theme of the Salim-Sulaiman albums is rejuvenated. Great but predictable music. Kunwara is an excellent track for first time listeners of Salim-Sulaiman, but is cliché otherwise.
Finally, the much awaited song named after Bipasha ! Great music and the song is passable. The Jhankar themed song reminds of the “Deedar De” from Dus. Bipasha also has a lot to offer- Shrraddha Pandit vocals blends with the music very well.
A romantic track beautifully rendered by Shafqat Amanat Ali and Clinton Cerejo. The song has poetic lyrics with perfect music by Salim-Sulaiman. Probably the best of the lot, Darmiyaan has a lot to offer. Perfect bass and chords to start the track. Perfect vocals by Shafqat beautifully blended with English chorals by Clinton. The half star which this song lacks is because a part of the tune reminds me of an earlier Atif’s solo. A much need track at this point of time!
4. Mujhko Teri Zaroorat Hai
A fresh theme from Salim-Sulaiman once again. The soothing song has great guitar strums. Shadab’s vocals is one notable mention in this track. Great music !
5. Jab Main Tumhare Saath Hoon
Brilliant vocals by Shilpa Rao, Benny Dayal and Salim. This song, despite its poor English vocals gets the melody right. This mushy track is a typical Salim-Sulaiman track.
6. Darmiyaan (Reprise)
Great vocals & great song. People who love reprises will definitely like this.
7. Bipasha (Remix)
Good remix. A retreat for those who loved the original track.
8. Mujhko Teri Zaroorat Hai (Remix)
Great remix! The album ends with a party song.
Jodi Breakers has plenty to offer. A much needed album at the right moment ! An album to move past the ennui created the recent albums. This album is a retreat for the fans of Salim-Sulaiman, the songs are already in the top of the charts, a big applause to Salim-Sulaiman.
