 Album Analysis :

1. Teri Jhuki Nazar

Singers : Shafqat Amanat Ali

Teri Jhuki Nazar is a romantic, slow composition supported amply by guitar strummings. Sayeed Quadri’s lyrics don’t have the impact required for the scenario. Shafqat Amanat Ali does a neat job behind the mike. Pritam has stuck to his Jannat templates & has composed a typical Bhatt song.

2. Mat Aazma Re

Singers : K. K

This song is straight out of the jukebox of films like Tum Mile, Raaz. Still, Mat Aazma Re is one of the better songs in the album. KK does a good job with his high-pitched singing but the entire tune is painfully recycled. Can expect some typical Bhatt visuals in this number though !

3. Jaata Hai Tujh

Singers : Nikhil D’Souza

You can hear it for 5 seconds & can place bet for thousands by guessing it as a Pritam composition. This song brings out every known Pritam template. The club beats have zero innovation & this song has another version too – not very different in terms of composition but with slightly different lyrics.

4. Hum Jee Lenge

Singers : Mustafa Zahid

“Hum Jee Lenge” is a non-Pritam song in the album performed by Mustafa Zahid & his Roxen band. The guitar pieces deserve mention & there is a separate rock version in the album too with more emphasis on heavier rock elements. This by a long way is not a bad song but at the same time the composition is not great too.

The very positive & the problem with the music of ‘Murder 3’ lies in the mood of songs. Typical Bhatt music lovers will love this album. The album doesn’t experiment much & sticks to its usual template tunes & it looks as if Pritam made the entire album in a hurry. Is it similar to previous Bhatt musicals like Jism, Murder, Jannat, Raaz, etc ? Well, the tunes are similar but the listeners get only a sense of Dejavu. Go for it if you are a fan of Bhatt albums or slow, romantic numbers !!

Picks of the album : Hum Jee Lenge, Teri Jhuki Nazar, Mat Aazma Re

Album Verdict : Revisit Murder, Jannat, Raaz & Jism with Murder 3 !

Album Rating : ★★★★★★½☆☆☆
