Bollywood's khiladiAkshay Kumar is back in action to pack a punch with his new outing Khiladi 786. The film's soundtrack has been composed by Himesh Reshammiya. It has seven original tracks and five remixes.
First up on the playlist is Lonely, whose initial tune sounds similar to Alexandra Stan's hit number Mr.Saxobeat. The song has rap by Yo Yo Honey and, on the whole, the number has good dancing beats. There are good vocal inputs by Himesh Reshammiya and Hamsika Iyer. The song is addictive, thanks to Himesh's nasal touch as he croons Oh Bawariya at regular intervals during the song. The track has a remixed version too, but that isn't too great.
Next up is the romantic number Sari Sari Raat, crooned by Himesh. It has a very dreamy and beautiful composition, and will surely strike a chord with lovebirds.
It is followed by Hookah Bar, which has the trio of Himesh Reshammiya, Vineet Singh and Aman Trikha sounding quite celebratory. However, despite some fine music, the song is unable to move the listener. It's remixed version is passe.
Overall, the album is a mixed bag that has some shortcomings, but there are tracks which are capable of making it to the music charts.
