Ghayal Once Again Music Review

2.0

EXPECTATIONS

Ghayal, which was released in 1990, had boasted of some good music by Bappi Lahiri with a couple of songs ( 'Sochna Kya Kya', 'Pyasi Jawani Hai') even turning out to be chartbusters. The sequel though hasn't seen any promotion around the music. It is understandable, considering the fact that just a couple of songs have been put together by composers Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya.

MUSIC

'Lapak Jhapak' is the first song to arrive and it is a campus track with Yashita Sharma, Siddharth Mahadevan and Armaan Mallik singing for a bunch of a youngsters. This one is themed on youth taking over the world and while it has a consistent rhythm to it, overall the composition is just about ordinary. The same holds true for the lyrics too that just about pass muster.

Arijit Singh is roped in for the second song, 'Khuda Hai Tere Andar'. This one has a slow beginning to it and is set as a soft-rock track. The mood stays on the same lines right through its duration and is about finding inner conscience and battling all the challenges that come one's way. Again, though the tune is ordinary, one expects this one to make an impact in the film's narrative.

OVERALL

This is a totally situational soundtrack.

OUR PICK(S)

'Khuda Hai Tere Andar'
