T-Series and Akshay Kumar's Hari OM Entertainment's AIRLIFT warrants good expectations, and with young guns, Amaal Malik and Ankit Tiwari, handling the music department, one is quite sure to be delivered chartbusting melodies.
The 'Khiladi' has been associated with many memorable love ditties and the latest to join the long long list of superhit romantic ballads will surely be 'Soch Na Sake
' which is the refurbished version of Sandhu Hard's 'Soch
'. Soft, simple, melodious and highly endearing, the song has Arijit in full form and giving him company is Tulsi Kumar and Amaal himself.
There is a solo version of 'Soch Na Sake
' sung by Arijit which makes for another lovely repeat hear, and as it is the song has tremendous repeat value.
Ankit Tiwari's offering 'Dil Cheez Tujhe Dedi
' is a nice party song with good Arabic arrangements and influences sung well by Ankit and Arijit, (nonetheless!) and will make for a good relaxing outing in the tense thriller. The inspiration from the still fresh in the memory and universally popular Khaled's 'Didi
' is apparent, especially in the 'mukdha
', but does not make any difference as the song will surely garner popularity.
Amaal's 'Mera Nachan Nu
' is all Punjabi in its heart and soul, celebrating life composition , 'bhangra', 'dhol taashe
' et al. The lyrics and the mood (and in parts the music too) inspired by Dharmendra's 'Yaara Dildara Mera
' (AADMI AUR INSAAN), the song has been enthusiastically rendered by Amaal, Divya Kumar and Brijesh Shandilya.
The haunting signature tune of AIRLIFT is just the start for the patriotic, situational 'Tu Bhoola Jise
' which appears to be another separation, 'bewafayee' romanting outing at first hear! However it transforms into a superb patriotic rockish number towards the end with 'Vande Mataram
' chants. Amaal Malik impresses in all departments and the ever dependable KK enchants with his perfect rendition.
Summing up, young Amaal comes up trumps with the audio of AIRLIFT, which is surely befitting of the high quality chartbusting compositions that we are so used to from a T-Series production. All the songs impress but our picks are 'Soch Na Sake
' (both versions) and 'Tu Bhoola Jise
'. The popular audio will definitely prove plus for the film which releases on 22nd January.(Rating could have been 4, but for the obvious inspirations and adaptations!)
