One of the most awaited movies of the year 2013, Race 2 is all set to release on 25th January. The prequel of this movie was a smashing hit at the box office and one can’t wait to watch this action thriller film as soon as it releases. When it has 2 gorgeous ladies, Deepika Padukone and Jacqueline Fernandez starring in the lead and the newly wed Saif Ali Khan and the ladies man John Abraham, one surely can’t wait to watch how this movie will turn out to be. The trailer of the movie, when first released on Youtube crossed 2.1 million views in the first seven days itself, so one can guess how excited the audience are to get a glimpse of this movie.
The music of the previous movie Race was a super duper hit among the people, the sultry sirens – Katrina Kaif and Bipasha Basu dancing to these tunes made these songs even popular.
Race 2 has four songs, let’s have a look at how these songs fare –
|Party on my mind||K.K, Yo Yo Honey Singh and Shefali Alvares|
|Be Intehaan||Atif Aslam and Sunidhi Chauhan|
|Lat Lag Gayee||Benny Dayal and Shalmali Kholgade|
|Allah Duhai Hai||Vishal Dadlani, Atif Aslam and Anushka Manchanda|
1. Party on my mind
As soon as the song starts you know this is going to be a crazy one which you will definitely add it to your party play list. The lyrics don’t really matter as the tune is what you will be engrossed in. Heavy, chirpy beats, this track surely gets your head swinging and feet tapping. However if you’re not really a fan of loud music then this one is not for you.
2. Be Intehaan
Atif Aslam and Sunidhi Chauhan being the singers, you can certainly jump to the conclusion that this one is going to be a great track. It’s almost 5 minutes long but you don’t really mind it, as the vocals are so melodious which continues to ring in your ears even after the song is over. Beats are soft and idyllic creating an air of romance around you.
3. Lat Lag Gayee
This one is way better than ‘Party on my mind’ track. A fast paced one which makes it even more enjoyable to listen to. It’s not only a track on which you can shake a leg on but also something which you will like listening to when you want to relax. The chorus part of the track is the best part of the song.
4. Allah Duhai Hai
This track is like the trade mark of the movie, without it the movie seems incomplete. The track was on everyone’s mind when it was first released in the prequel of this movie and now yet again it’s playing on the radio all the time, and no one really minds it because the track is so energetic and lively. Fast beats and brilliant singing, this one is going to stay on the charts again for a long time.
Verdict : The songs in the album are not bad at all, an admirable work by Pritam and the singers too, however when you look at the album as a whole it seems too plain compared to the album of the first movie. While the previous album was filled with more number of songs which fell into various categories like the club-party tracks, romantic tracks etc this album does not offer much when it comes to this aspect. The 4 tracks, actually just 3 because one is a repeat of the previous movie, is quite fun to listen to and you won’t get bored at all, however a little more variety and spice could have made this album even better.
