Kaizad Gustad's last film Amitabh Bachchan's BOOM, is one those flicks that both the mega star Bachchan and the 'super starni' Katrina Kaif would surely like to forget, despite the fact that the film marked the debut of Katrina! Its music was a situational one and was in no way memorable. So there are not much expectations from a host of composers led by Sharib-Toshi, singer Mika Singh who turns composer and quite a few fresh and old music directors. Let's check out whether Kaizad's team of composers put up a memorable offering this time around.

Lovely piano notes and crisp sound of rainfall herald the love-cum-separation number, 'Kabhi Jo Baadal Barse', the kind that is tailor made for an Emraan Hashmi flick. Sharib-Toshi are on song! The number is almost in an unplugged mode with just minimal music arrangements and one can decipher guitar strums and at times some harmonica. Arijit Singh base and almost inebriated vocals are a delight to savour and are the highlight of this lovely number.

There is a female version of the song as well rendered superbly by the 'sureeli' Shreya Ghoshal and its always a treat listening to her.

'Kabhi Jo Baadal Barse' remix by Maxi Priest is more club friendly and is like a lounge version with added tempo and beats . There is another remix version by Rishi Rich and it is a pleasant departure from the original.

The undoubted king of item numbers, Mika Singh composes and renders the racy 'Full Jhol' in his inimitable and well-loved style and Akasa Singh provides oomph support with added rap. Lots of synthesized beats and rhythm add to the dance effect.

'Jackpot Jeetna'' is a situational title track with lots of English thrown in so much so that it almost sounds like an English number. Sung by Sunidhi Sinha it provides a peek into the film and adds to the narrative. The background music and lyrics lend mystery and thrill.

There are many such words thrown into a Hindi sentence which makes a khichdi of the language. In one line I clearly heard the guy spit out a filthy abuse in Konkani. But I guess it would have bounced off the head of the censors.

Wait, there is also Sunny Leone who was meant to titillate but is actually a huge turn-off. So what was the point of plastering her all over the posters?

Makarand was right. This plot is complex!

Rating 3/5
