Movie: ABCD 2

Cast: Varun Dhawan,Shraddha Kapoor,Prabhu Deva

Director: Remo D'Souza

Music director: Sachin-Jigar



1.Bezubaan Phir Se-Vishal Dadlani,Anushka Manchanda,Madhav Krishna

Hard rock, hip-hop beats and heavy synthesizers make up this track which is a rehash of Bezubaan number from the prequel. The number has a strong undercurrent energy flowing throughout. It would surely have some amazing dance moves and will scorch the screens. Vishal Dadlani's high octave rendition is pure delight while Madhav Krishna and Anushka Manchanda elevate the mood of the track with their energetic vocals. Pumping track!

2.Naach Meri Jaan-Benny Dayal,Shalmali Kholgade,Siddharth Basrur,Rimi Nique

Here comes a number that sounds much like a party track of the early 2000s. The tune is easily relatable which makes this number more enjoyable. High Latino beats and awesome vocals by Benny Dayal,Shalmali Kholgade,Siddharth Basrur and Rimi Nique provide a complete pub package. Hit the dance floor with this number!

3.Sun Saathiya-Divya Kumar,Priya Saraiya

I would say that the essence of Bollywood music continues to live on only because of numbers like this one. It is a scintillating love ballad with traces of Hindustani elements. If you want to experience heaven in 3:42 minutes, then you should surely plug in to this one. Priya Saraiya's swooning voice is out of the world and Divya Kumar induces addiction into the song. Soul-stirring all the way!

4.Vande Mataram-Daler Mehendi,Tanishka Sanghvi,Badshah,Divya Kumar

Another awesome patriotic tribute to Vande Mataram is composed in the form of this number. The song is sure to be a situational dance number in the movie. It sways between slow and fast beats at many moments. With traditional instruments and thumping rhythm, this track will be a visual delight. Daler Mehendi and Tanishka Sanghvi put up a wonderful show with their voices while Badshah and Divya Kumar's rendition complement perfectly.

5.Chunar-Arijit Singh

An out and out melody number finds a place in this dance based album. Beginning with mellowed piano notes, this number provides an emotional feel all the way with its hauntingly slow beats. With Arijit Singh yielding the megaphone, it will surely strike a chord with the listeners. It is a perfect ode to all the mothers in the recent times!

6.Happy Birthday-Varun Dhawan,Sachin-Jigar

Another party number which has the funky vocals of Varun Dhawan and the composer duo Sachin-Jigar. It falls into the category of high techno beats induced numbers that are booming nowadays. The rap section stands out in the entire track. This number is going to be the party number of the year with some exuberant dance moves from Varun Dhawan on the screen. Rocking!

7.Happy Hour-Mika Singh

Are you in need of an addictive lounge bar song? Going by the contemporary beats and minimal instruments, I must say that this is one of the most innovative tunes in recent times. Mika Singh's pitch perfect rendition will make you go swinging along with the rhythm. The haunting chorus accompaniment is effective for the track. Enjoyable song!

8.If You Hold My Hand-Benny Dayal

This romantic track provides a global feel right from the word go. It maybe because of the melange of Hindi and English lyrics or maybe because of Benny Dayal's bombastic rendition. It is refreshing to listen to this track which is devoid of many instruments and works wonders with its simple International tune arrangement.

9.Hey Ganaraya-Divya Kumar

Get ready to experience a divine spiritual number with exotic rhythm and Hindustani touches. Kudos to Sachin-Jigar in composing a modern fusion and paying tribute to Lord Ganesha in an innovative manner. Be it the fast paced speeds, Divya Kumar's flawless vocals or the thumping chorus, everything elevates this song to a higher level. Pure magic!

10.Tattoo-Shefali Alvares

Though the song begins on a plain techno rhythm, it gains momentum once Shefali Alvares comes in. She is the heroine of this song as her vocals are so raw and natural that they stay with you for a long time. This number is sure to rock the charts as it sounds much like 'Love mera hit hit' from Billu Barber. Tattoo is another winner in this album and it is sure to rock the charts!

Verdict:

Sachin-Jigar have catapulted to the top notch of music directors with this fantastic soundtrack. ABCD 2 is the coolest album of this summer!
