Its A Treat To All Bollywood Music Lovers !
Cocktail is a youthful and colorful Romcom . One of the superstar music directors Pritam has composed its music . Top Stars Saif Ali Khan And Deepika Padukone paired up once again for a romantic film after huge success of Love Aaj kal . So , one can easily expect something so special from the music album of Cocktail . On the other hand Cocktail promos , specially song promos created huge buzz since ever the promos have been released .
So , The Expectation to this one was simply huge !!
What We Got :
Cocktail offers total 10 tracks . 7 Original and 3 special tracks .
The Album starts with a bang as Tum Hi Ho Bandhu which is already hugely popular comes first . Neeraj Shridhar and Kavita Seth rocked it . Anyone can easily go gaga over it thats the quality of Pritam’s music . Irshad Kamil’s lyrics is so catchy . Tumhi Ho Bandhu is simply one of the best songs of the year and its gonna be a chart buster all the way . The best song of the album no doubt .
Daaru Desi is another chart buster sang by Benny Dayal and Shalmali Kholgade . Pritam da rocked once again man . The song is so lazy and so so beautiful . Irshad Kamil’s lyrics is brilliant . You are gonna love it if you have a colorful heart .
Yaariyan is slow but nice . The song is sung by lead vocalist of Band Agnee Mohan Kanan and Shilpa Rao . Irshad Kamil’s lyrics with Mohan Kanan’s voice made the song so special .
Miss Pooja, Neha Kakkar, Nakkash Aziz come together with Second Hand Jawani . This one is funny . Funny music , funny style of singing and very very funny lyrics . Cocktail is a colorful romcom so this one might suit with the mood of the film . But at the same time it breaks the quality of the album . If we compare this one with previous tracks then it can be marked out easily as the odd one .
Tera Naam Japdi Phiran offers modern and Punjabi mixed music . Singers Javed Bashir, Nikhil D’souza and Shefali have done a good job . The song is soulful at a part .
Lutna (Said Ul Malook) is a sufi song with modern music . The song is beautiful . It has soul that can touch you or connect with you . Masuma Anwar, Anupam Amod, Sahir Ali have done a fantastic job . Pritam’s music is simply perfect .
Jugni is another one which you cant ignore . Pritam’s music is awesome in this song . Arif Lohar and Hashdeep Kaur’s singing styles are absolutely enjoyable . This one is not a typical bollywood song but a folk song . If you like different kind of music then Jugni must be a song for you .
Beside these there are Yaarian (Reprise) sang by Sunidhi Chauhan and Arijit Singh . Not only the singers but the music itself is completely different in this song than original one . First one is too good but this one is just okay .
Lutna ( Version 2 ) And Tera Naam Japdi Phiran (Remix) are as good as the original . Thumbs up for Both versions of these songs .
Overall , The Music of Cocktail is too good . One of the best works by Pritam till now . Every Song except Second Hand Jawani is beautiful .
This one is simply the best album of the year so far .
