1.Mera Naam Mary-Chinmayi Sripada
Rehashing their own composition Nach Le from Marathi movie Jatra, Ajay-Atul deliver a high on energy mass number. The prelude sounds like the tune of the Tamil song Naan Adicha from Vettaikaaran, but the comparison stops there. With beats that make you forget everything and just dance, Chinmayi's sultry & powerful rendition which provides a touch of sweetness to the song and lively trumpet sections, this song has everything to become the chartbuster of this year!
2.Sapna Jahan-Sonu Nigam,Neeti Mohan
On a serene night with complete silence around you, plug in to this number and get lost in a world of passionate love. This song is mellifluously addictive as well as heartwarming to listen to. It indulges in the honey-dipping voices of Sonu Nigam and Neeti Mohan, soul-stirring tabla beats, mindblowing piano notes and flute section in the second interlude. It has an undercurrent classical energy flowing throughout. Despite being slow, it is musically rich!
3.Gaaye Ja (Female)-Shreya Ghoshal
Ajay-Atul come up with their signature melody in this track. As soon as the track begins, we get pulled into an haunting trance. Especially we would find ourselves dwelling in the mystical and divine voice of Shreya Ghoshal. Composed in an unplugged manner with only an excellent string section and mellowed piano notes as accompaniment, this melodious situational track is sure to tug at your heartstrings. Inspiring and elegant!
4.Brothers Anthem-Vishal Dadlani
The high-throated soprano singing by Vishal Dadlani opens this track with a thump. The entire song is replete with racy beats, lively string section and powerful chorus. Watch out for the brilliant percussion session towards the end. Ajay-Atul have proved their versatility by giving an ordinary tune their touch of composition. Perfect anthem for the movie.
5.Gaaye Ja (Male)-Mohammed Irfan
Equally haunting as the female version, this track has Mohammed Irfan yielding the megaphone with his magical voice. Though there is no difference in this from the previous version, it has an overload of pathos to it. And yeah, the track is composed in one of my favorite ragas Keeravani. Fitting finale for the album!
Though touted to be an action movie, this album is replete with melodies. Ajay-Atul prove that they are the best of the lot when it comes to composing slow melody songs. I still deeply love their Jeev Dangala from Jogva Marathi movie.
