1. Mera Mann Kehne Laga
This one is a five minute long song which has some soft chirpy and happy beats. It’s one of those songs which you would like to listen to again and again. Falak Shabir has done complete justice to this song and the music towards the chorus part is the best part. In all it’s a song that can make you smile, a thumbs up for this one!
2. Sadi Galli Aaja
In the recent times it’s very rare that you find an actor who can actually act and entertain the audience and has a voice to die for. Ayushmann Khurrana’s vocals in this song is the only
thing you will pay attention to. The music is upbeat and nice too, however his voice is something that will capture all your attention throughout the song.
3. Dhak Dhak
This song is an absolute disaster. A very bad attempt in remaking the good old Madhuri Dixit song Mera Jiya Dhak Dhak Karne Laga. Nasal voice, pathetic music accompanied with disastrous choreography, the sexy old song has been transformed to something you wouldn’t ever want to listen to.
4. Tu Hi Tu
Tu hi tu is again sung by Ayushmann Khurrana however this one is quite passable. Lyrics aren’t something that stands out and neither is the music. But you do find the actor singing in a high pitch which is not too bad. Over all the song doesn’t really get to you so it’s something you will forget about after listening to it.
Here you find Abhishek Bachchan appearing in a cameo role in this song. It’s a very funky song as you find the actors wearing weird costumes like they are dressed for a costume party but the good part is the lyrics and tune of the song matches with the video and compliments the entire scenario portrayed. It’s a happy go lucky kind of song and can be included in your house party track list.
6. Sapna Mera Toota
When you have Rahet Fateh Ali Khan singing a song it goes without saying that the vocals would be incredible and the song too. Going with the trend, this is another one of his songs which is on the morbid side creating a very gloomy atmosphere. The tune is slow but the beats are something that you will like especially towards the chorus.
7. Dil Ki Toh Lag Gayi
The song starts with a very sufi like music which is different from the other songs hence makes it unique. But it’s quite a disappointment because the song is too soft and something that is suitable for a horror like movie. Lyrics is something you won’t like and the vocals are not too bad but it’s the tune which you might enjoy mainly because it’s something new.
8. So Gaya Yeh Jahan
This is again a remake of the old song ‘So Gaya Yeh Jahan’ and it’s disappointing. Fast paced music and the choreography does not compliment the track at all. But on the other hand it could also be a satrical adaptation of the song being portrayed. This we will know only after we watch the movie.
9. Mera Mann Kehne Laga (reprise)
This is the reprise version which of the original track and surprisingly it’s a lot better. Though both the versions of the song are nice, this one gets a bigger thumbs up!
10. Sadi Galli Aaja (unplugged)
It’s quite similar to the original version hence you can as well listen to the original version instead of this one.
11. Mera Mann Kahne Laga (Female)
The female version of this song is sung by Tulsi kumar and it’s beautiful. It’s hard to decide which one is better the male or the female version. Never the less both versions are a must listen.
12. Sadi Gali Aaja (remix)
Another version of this song, but makes no difference again. This one is a little fast paced compared to the other two versions but original one is way better.
13. Mera Mann Kehna Laga (remix)
Remixing a gorgeous romantic track is not really a good idea. However this remix isn’t too bad but if you prefer the slow laid back romance kind of song go for the original.
Verdict: This album has good and bad aspects. The good aspect is that there is a lot of experimentation when it comes to music, each track has a different tune which compliments the lyrics. The bad aspect is the remaking of old songs, the two songs that have been included in this album are not at all impressive. However if there is one constant good thing throughout the album it’s the vocals, brilliant in every song. Over all this album is not too bad but it could have definitely done much better.
