Composer Amit Trivedi and lyricist Kausir Munir have come together to bring out a lovely romantic track. The opening number, Ishaqzade has a lovely vocal rendition by Javed Ali and Shreya Ghosal. Together they create magic.
Chokra Jawaan is totally desi item number. However they do not quite have the punch of the lyrics from similar numbers like Beedi from Omkara or the high energy. The song does have a rustic feel. Sunidhi Chauhan breezes through, while Vishal Dadlani brings a certain amount of raw appeal to the number. An interesting song, which does not quite have the zing to make it a hot item number.
A Aafaton ke parinde is a rather interesting number. While Divya Kumar sings the classical alaaps, Suraj Jagan induces the grunge rock elements with his power-packed voice. This number rocks!
The next track, Pareshaan is the best on this playlist; and its fresh singer Shalmali Kholgade, all the way! She moves smoothly from low notes to high-pitched vocals and then back to low. The entire combination – electric guitar, violins, drums and harmonium – creates a crescendo, a breath-taking song.
The remix version is very nice as well. The tempo fluctuates and the vocals are used perfectly in sync with the electronic sounds and beats.
Jhallah wallah is an item number with naughty and playful lyrics but it refrains from getting into the vulgar zone. After singing the soothing Ishaqzaade title track, Shreya Ghosal renders one of the most colorful and playful songs with Jhallah wallah.
An interesting track – with a reasonable sticky value.
