Based on South Indian dappankuthu beats, this energetic number is the first offering of the album by composer Amaal Malik.

With the accompaniment of mellowed piano notes and the not-so-perfect rendition by Mithoon and Tulsi Kumar, this number would appeal after a few listens.
5.Tu Milade-Ankit Tiwari
Well, this number is Himesh Reshmaiyya's forte as it has his stamp all over it. Unlike the previous numbers, this one provides a refreshing change to the the entire album. Upbeat rhythm, blaring hard rock guitar strums and an addictive tune makes this number an ultimate winner. Ankit Tiwari once again proves that he is the best when it comes to melody rock songs. Excellent!
