Swiss Entertainment's Jasmine D 'Souza directed ONE NIGHT STAND boasts of music by some of the superhit composers of today, Meet Bros, Jeet Ganguly , Tony Kakkar etc, so expectations are quite high from them to deliver popular music, as always. And with Sunny Leone, the face behind many chartbusting songs, the task gets even easier.
Tony Kakkar provides just the chartbusting start with 'Do Peg Maar
'. As is evident from the title its appears to be yet another song featuring Sunny that involves 'daaru
'/alcohol. But it's the superb rhythmic tune and lovely arrangements that hook, and Neha Kakkar's modulating vocals are a delight in this trance dance number, so are lyrics by Kumaar!
Arijit Singh delivers yet another ace with passionate romantic number 'Ijazat
' which could have been better titled 'aadat
'. The slow, simple engaging tune is easy to hum and the crescendo superb. The song should translate well on screen with the handsome Tarun Virwani and seductive Sunny.
Lovely intoxicating music welcomes listeners and one gets prepared for another round of trance number, though this time it's not 'daaru
' (alcohol) but 'sutta
' (smoky drugs!). Just like 'Manali Trance
' (THE SHAUKEENS), 'Ishq Da Sutta
' is addictive and one feels that this time around it's Phuket, where part of film has been shot. Jasmine Sandlas impresses with an uninhibited, emotive and strong rendition with Meet Bros as always playing the perfect foil.
It's the debutant musician Vivek Kar's turn to impress with a lovely, pensive, sad soulful heart break number, 'Ki Kara
'. Shipra Goyal delivers an outstanding performance. Kumaar's lyrics are simple Punjabi & Hindi and relatable.
' is another improvised but male version of 'Ki Kara
', sung well by Dev Negi, with harmonica arrangements and makes for a good hear. It appears to be a totally different song because of different lyrics, settings, and the fact that it's a romantic number and not a heart break one as 'Ki Kara
', though the tune is same.
Jeet Ganguly is the guest composer with just one song to his credit and he, as always, gives his best shot with the 'Le Chala
'. A lovely carefree, full of life and zest , a sort of journey song that explores the mind of the male lead, after meeting his beloved and his feelings. Jubin does a good job though his diction is a bit a sore point ('Kadam
' and 'Kadar' should be 'Qadam
'). Although one feels that it's just that it has not been pointed out as he does well on the whole.
Summing up, the audio of ONE NIGHT STAND impresses in most departments. The album has variety, and more over its a mass-plus-class effort by all the composers, and a good audio should help the cause of the movie when it releases all over on 22nd April, and hopefully provide young, handsome Tarun Virwani with just the turbo -charge needed , to propel his career further.Music Review Rating Chart:-
