Usually Bhatt movies have very good songs and Bhatt/Emraan movies are even more known for the quality songs. The movie looks amazing, so let`s find out if the album impresses as well.
"Teri Khushboo" by Arijit Singh/ Jeet Gannguli/ Rashmi Singh who presented us with Muskurane from Citylights. The song at first doesn`t sound very special, though it is worth to listen to it several times. The sad lyrics about moving on from a broken heart is of course brought very well by Arijit, who is amazing at letting emotions be felt through his songs. The beat helps in conveying the dark atmosphere of the song. There is also a version sung by Neeti Mohan, who, with her sweet voice, turns it into a different song. Both version are quite appealing, with Arijit`s version being more a dark sad song and Neeti`s version being a soft mysterious song.
"Tu Jo Hain" is another typical Ankit song. Despite the fact that the songs sound pretty much always kind of the same it`s not always the same quality, and some just somehow seem to be amazing. In this case it`s not great, but since his songs just never seem to be bad we can call this an average Ankit song. You can both say: it`s too much of the same and it`s an nice enjoyable song.
"Mr. X" starts of really well with great vocals and a soft feeling, however after a minute and a bit the song takes a major turn and turns more into a theme song after which it returns to the first style. Perhaps if the song would have stayed in 1 style, can be either of one or something in between, it would have been more in balance. It`s different from other songs and therefore it does draw the attention. I can enjoy the song, but I doubt I`ll put it on replay., though it does sound kind of cool... You can call me x.
"Saad Shukraana", where the previous Ankit song was a standard one, this one is a little different. There is a lot more variety in the beat, which should be noted, and after several listens it really grabs you, if you like Ankit songs you might find this one of his most enjoyable ones as well.
Last is "Alif Se", which is even more different from Ankit`s usual songs than the previous one, this song is more upbeat while not turning in a party song. The pace is fast, the beat is mesmerizing, the lyrics are good (could have belonged to one of his slow songs as well) and the vocals are very appealing.
For normal standards the album is a bit average at first and for a Bhatt/Emraan movie the album it seems a bit disappointing. But after listening to it several times it actually turns out to be a very good album. The atmosphere of the songs really seem to suit the movie. There are 2 songs which are unusual/ creative (Mr.x/ style and Saad Shukrana/ beat). Every song is nice, none of them seem to be much better than any other, or with other words, all the songs are of good quality, so you can actually take joy from every song. Especially when you play the entire album all the songs can be really enjoyed. Separately the songs are good but when listened together it sounds amazing and it turns into a very good album. This soundtrack can be added to the list of Bhatt movies with great soundtracks.
