Twelve original tracks, three remix versions, different composers, independent bands and a range of musical genres, David’s sound track offers a great deal.  The film is set in three different time periods, so the music explores three different 

First up is 'Ghum huye', the theme song that has been composed by the band Brahmfutra. The composition has elements of rock and has been crooned to perfection by Siddharth Basrur.  Nice beats and electronic music. 

 Next, the famous 'Mast Kalandar' gets an unheard twist by Rekha Bhardwaj. Her voice fits in oh-so-well and you get a taste of qawaali, rock, reggae and folk in a single track.
 
Time for some fusion with the next number 'Tore matware naina' that blends Indian classical and French sounds.  It is quite a feat for singers to mange the multiple styles of music. 

It is followed by 'Maria pitache', which has Remo Fernandes behind the mike. He gets you in Goan carnival mode with this melody, with lyrics in Hindi and Konkani. It is a happy-go-lucky track and it is a pure bliss.
An album is incomplete without the love quotient and 'Tere mere pyaar ki' fills that void. Sung by Naresh Iyer and Shweta Pandit, it may not be the finest from the lot but still manages to capture your heart with the guitar and whistling sounds.

For those who like Punk, 'Bandhay' will make you sit up with its high-octane energy and guitars riffs. Composed by the band Modern Mafia, it has Ankur Tewari enthralling you with his powerful voice.

The second dose of love comes with 'Yun hi re', which marks the entry of Anirudh Ravichander's (Kolaveri fame) in Bollywood as composer and singer. Along with Shweta Mohan, he takes the listener on a romantic high with the sound of flute and other classical instruments playing a pivotal role.

Next on the play list is 'Rab di'. Sung by Karthik, it has a good amalgamation of different sounds.   It is followed by the Hinglish ballad 'Out of control', sung by Marianne and Tara Sitaria that takes the listener to a very calm territory. It also has a choir version.

 Lucky Ali's experimental track 'Ya Husain' and the chorus keeps you engaged.There is the soaring number 'Three Kills'. An out-and-out heavy metal track, it is totally rough and tough.
Rounding up the album is the instrumental 'Light House Symphony' composed by Remo, whose guitar is enticing. Overall the album certainly has a lot  to offer.
