1.Sanam Teri Kasam-Ankit Tiwari,Palak Muchhal
An engaging title track is what Himesh Reshammiya serves us in the very beginning. What makes the song a haunting one is the addictive guitar strums in the prelude and interludes. In addition to that, Himesh indulges a dynamic violin section as accompaniment to the guitar. The free-flowing tune and an upbeat rhythm make it easy for Ankit Tiwari and Palak Muchhal to croon with passion in their voices. This one will stay on playlists for a long time!
2.Kheech Meri Photo-Neeti Mohan,Akasa Singh,Darshan Raval
The mood of the album changes with this party track. But mind it! This number isn't like the dance numbers of these days. It is more desilicious and the addictive techno beats & digital loops add zing to the tune. Neeti Mohan weaves magic with her voice and her soprano notes are pitch perfect. She is joined by Akasa Singh and Darshan Raval who quip in occasionally. Get on the dance floor with this different old-school party song!
There is something about Bewajah that will surely make you revisit the track again and again. Especially if you're a fan of Himesh Reshammiya's voice, you'd love this one to the core. The soft rock progression along with the dulcet piano notes, lead guitar strums, romantic lyrics and of course Himesh's mellifluous rendition make this number a beautiful listen on a lovey-dovey evening. Another winner!
4.Tera Chehra-Arijit Singh
The mindblowing aspect that stands out in this track is the amazing tabla beats that accompany throughout the number. Himesh Reshmmiya composes a number that is sure to sweep the listeners' soul away. And to top the tune, there is Arijit Singh, who has become a mandatory singer in every soundtrack of these days. Himesh's trademark guitar strums play a major role here too. Experimentally melodious!
5.Haal-E-Dil (Male)-Sreerama Chandra
Finally, here comes a pathos that will melt your heart with its lyrics. Though the tune doesn't appeal on the first listen, it will grow on you like a slow poison. The haunting piano notes in the prelude and interludes increase the eerie aura of the song. Sreerama Chandra's slight classical rendition is definitely top class and his voice feels like honey to the ears.
6.Haal-E-Dil (Female)-Neeti Mohan
The above track arrives in a female version crooned by the lovely Neeti Mohan. This one is more upbeat, addictive and eerie. Especially, when Neeti begins 'Haal-E-Dil Mera...', it is heaven from that moment. You can plug on to this number on a serene night and get lost in her honey-dipping voice. Mandolins in the interlude deserve a special applause!
7.Ek Number-Himesh Reshammiya,Neeti Mohan
Neeti Mohan gets to croon yet another track and her stylish whispery rendition is the icing on the cake. Himesh's vocals are addictive and a tinge of classical is visible in his rendition. In terms of lyrics, this track spells modernity with the usage of urban words and slang. The steady rhythm pattern elevates the mood of the song. A decently enjoyable one!
8.Main Teri Yaadon Mein-Arijit Singh
Though this number is a racy one, Arijit Singh's classical rendition provides it a vague melodious touch. Apart from that, the tune isn't anything innovative and gets a tad boring after a point. This one can be listened on a long ride in the highways. A passable one from Himesh.
9.Sanam Teri Kasam (Reprise)-Mohammed Irfan,Palak Muchhal
The title track arrives in a reprise version and brings the album's curtains down in an elegant manner. Mohammed Irfan replaces Ankit Tiwari here and he puts up a commendable show with his sweet vocals, while Palak Muchhal gets the same lines to croon. However, the album could have done well even without this reprise version.
Himesh Reshammiya delivers a classic with this soundtrack in which each number is a gem on its own. Wish he composes more nowadays!
