“ Genre: Soundtrack / Artist: Original Bollywood Soundtrack / Audio CD released at Junglee Music „
It is always great to see new talents come in to the industry-their music adds much freshness to the listening experience of the audiences. Dil Kabaddi features one such talented young singer-composer Sachin Gupta.
The album starts off well with 'Ehsaan'-sung by Jaspreet Singh and the composer Sachin himself. Ehsaan belongs to the rock genre and the song scores well in all the departments (lyrics, composition and singing). There's something really fresh about this song, I am sure you'll understand once you listen to this!
Jaspreet Singh and Aditya Jassi come together to sing 'Uthale Ya Phenk De'-a fun number about relations, commitments, etc. The composition is zappy and holds lot of youth appeal. The lyrics go well with the setting of the song and are pretty hilarious and entertaining. A fun ride this!
Change of scenario, in comes Mr.Rahat Fateh Ali Khan to mesmerize us with his magical vocals! 'Zindagi Ve' is essentially a sufi number and is my favorite track of the album. Well equipped with meaningful lyrics and classic composition, Ye Zindagi turns out to be an underrated gem. Sachin Gupta has successfully shown us his diverse range as a composer,such a classy composition shows he has a bright future! And Rahat Fateh, take a bow!
When you see singer Mika Singh's name in the credits, you know what you are signing up for- some mindless fun! 'Ok Tata Done' is as weird as the title itself, with minimal vocals and eccentric music playing throughout. Skip!
Sachin Gupta tries to compose something for the mass audience with 'Nasha Nashila'-but the ingredients are too much for the ears! The song tries to pack in everything commercial,from fusion parts to English bits, and the result is not too pleasant.
The album comes back in track with the remixed version of 'Ehsaan' which works big time! With added English lyrics, an increased tempo and more energy, it makes you realize again that it is such a fine song.
'Zindagi Ye' gets a rock version, and I'm not complaining! Rahat Fateh shows his power yet again, delivering a flawless rendition. Rahat goes through all the nuances effortlessly,and his husky vocals are a treat anyday. Zindagi Ye needs to be heard!
The album ends with the appropriate title 'Goodnight'- a Punjabi number that entertains you with its zingy composition and funny lyrics!
Dil Kabaddi's soundtrack covers much area, but it is Ehsaan and Zindagi Ye which holds center stage. An impressive debut I must say.
