Album Analysis:

1. Rangeelay:

This song is reminiscent of the track from Dev D ‘emotional atyachar’ mainly for its opening music. Sung by Babal Rai there is nothing very great or foot-tapping in this. Even though fast paced it is not exactly very entertaining and for a title track it does not do much.

2) Raati Peeni Daaru:

Mika Singh’s all too familiar voice initially promises some fun but after a while becomes monotonous since the neither the tempo nor the music has many variations and after a while just sort of falls flat.

3) Tere Bina Din Mere:

The opening notes of this song are very sweet and melodious and Feroz Khan’s voice complements this track well but somehow does not sound new or unique , more like the tried and tested romantic tracks we hear today. The lyrics are nice though.

4) Yaara Tu:

A pleasant song with good vocals by Ashim Kemson. A tad too slow but might appeal to quite a few people. Shipra Goyal’s voice sounds very mesmerizing though quite brief.

5) Dil De Kutte:

The Punjabi style of singing is a unique and vibrant form and easily recognizable. This song is quite nice and the lyrics sound kind of quirky with a fun and chill out kind of a feel to it . Probably one of my favourites in the album.

6) Boliyaan:

A fast paced typical Punjabi song. Nishawan Bhullar and Simran Tripat lend their wonderful voices to this upbeat song which will probably a hit at weddings.

7) Dil De Kutte:

This version is sung by Sonu Nigam and that is the only difference between this version and the other one and as a matter of personal preferences go I prefer the one sung by Jashan Singh.

The album does not have too many great tracks or unique music that stands out . Hopefully it blends well with the picturization and the movie’s storyline.

Picks of the album: Dil De Kutte, Yaara Tu

Album Verdict: Nothing spectacular, just average.
