Music Director: Amit Trivedi
Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya
Ek main aur ekk tu (Benny Dayal, Anushka Manchanda, Shefali Alvares) is a bouncy, teen pop number with a carefree spirit. Bhattacharya’s lyrics, though straight out of a nursery rhyme, are in perfect sync with the song’s upbeat rhythm. The auto-tuned vocals add to the appeal of this breezy title track. Fun while it lasts!
May be it’s the choice of the lead singer (Nikhil D’Souza) that makes Gubbare almost seem like an extension of Sham from Aisha but this dreamy number will have you swaying gently. Bhattacharya’s words are philosophical in a sweet sort of way. Trivedi deftly uses his signature instruments – drums & trumpets – a catchy chorus and a buoyant rhythm to create an endearing song. Shilpa Rao makes a brief but impressive appearance towards the end of this number.
Previously known for his soft romantic numbers, Ash King breaks new ground with Auntyji – an Elvis-style retro rock ‘n’ roll number. This cheeky lyrics pays a tribute to the middle-aged women. Though high on energy, the song falls short of being a full-blown entertaining number.
Aahatein (Karthik, Shilpa Rao) is a soft number about yearning for a loved one. While it is gentle and soothing, it’s also fairly run-of-the-mill. Kar chalna shuru tu attempts to be an uplifting, inspirational song about moving on in life but the singing (Vishal Dadlani, Shilpa Rao) seems a bit off-key.
Amit Trivedi’s music doesn’t disappoint entirely but this one’s definitely not in the same league as his earlier soundtracks Aisha and Dev D.
