Music Review( Hindi): Dil Dhadakne Do

Music Review( Hindi): Dil Dhadakne Do
Music Composer: Shankar- Ehsaan- Loy

Title song follows retro'ish rock sound and filled with brass sections results in boisterous song backed with well-employed chorus and Priyanka Chopra's confident vocals. However, Farhan Akhtar seems to be a misfit and tries hard in crooning the song. SEL's tune also works only in parts. Sidharth Mahadevan and Sukriti Kakkar rocks in delivering the rock base Pehli Baar and trio once again delivers appealing arrangements in the background for this genre despite song rides on the familiar note. Gallan Goodiyan has a bunch of singers to deliver the desi track which is punchy enough to scorch in wedding. Once again problem of heard before feel and templatized Punjabi track factor makes this uninspiring song in the soundtrack. SEL excels in delivering a fun filled, fast paced jazz track Girls like to swing with Sunidhi Chauhan behind the mic to bolster the energy in the song. Brass sections and Sunidhi's verve along with chorus makes this song works.Among the band of singers employed for crooning the pathos Phir Bhi Yeh Zindagi, Divya Kumar steals the show with his effectual singing. Brilliant guitar strums in the background and tune also makes this song best in the soundtrack.

Verdict: Dil Dhadakne Do soundtrack fails to meet the expectation and this album is a slight blip in the recent record of the trio.

My rating:7/10

Pick of the Album: Phir Bhi Yeh Zindagi, Girls like to swing, Pehli Baar
