After what I saw in the promos, and after knowing that the songs were sung by Amitabh, what came in the first song, Haal-e-dil, definitely surprised me. This romantic number has the first half sung by Amitabh with very little music in the background, and when the music is there in the second half, it makes the song even better. A lovely one. DO listen if you like Big B singing.
Then the title song is of course what you have heard on the TV in the promos. The rappish number is hummable but not much musical and hence not very good without the video.
After that, the Dub step version that also brings in Vishal Dadlani, is not an instantly likable thing, but then in some places the processing of the song is interesting and if you are one for technical stuff in songs, you might want to try the song once.
The last song of the album is Sunidhi’s Main Chandigarh di star, picturised on Raveena Tandon. The song, almost completely in Punjabi, has some interesting music, but much more interesting lyrics. In my opinion, if the video is good, the song may click well.
As for music, there is nothing much in the album except for the one Haal-e-dil, in which Big B sounds very musical, at least to the his fan in me. Rest of the album should be just enough to support the movie.
