Sunday, directed by Rohit Shetty, holds a couple of surprises for its listeners as far as the music goes. Sandeep Chowta returns to Bollywood with this film and the album also includes a composition by Pakistani band Suroor. And while there is Shibani Kashyap composing and rendering a track, Raghav Sachar too contributes.
Shibani makes her presence felt in the album not only as a singer but also as a composer for the song Kashmakash. This track is one of the classy item numbers that is minus all the raunchy music. But it has no lasting effect and would disappear into thin air.
A typical masala and masti piece comes in the form of Loot liya which Daler Mehndi as the composer as well as the singer. He pairs up with Sunidhi Chauhan for this rusty and celebratory number. Lyrics have been penned down by the singer himself along with Farhad Sajid. Again, one wouldn't want to particularly download it.
With Raghav Sachar written all over, Manzar comes in next. It has all the Raghav elements like the fusion of Indian and Western sounds with a bit of Sufi, soft rock and jazz. One of his favourite instruments, the saxophone, adds to the credibility of the track. An immensely likeable number, Manzar, sung by Earl Edgar, Mahua Kamath and Suraj, is sure to click with the masses.
The trio teams up again for the Missing Sunday. This Sandeep Chowta composition is more of music and less of chorus. With a whole lot of beats, rhythms and tempo intact, Missing Sunday" is a loud and catchy number that would be a hit when watching the film.
Pakistani band Suroor composes Pyar to hona hi tha. Kamran, who has penned it, along with Mohammed Ali renders the song that has amazing lyrics, pleasing music and vocals that click instantaneously. With soft guitar-strumming in the background, this one number is a piece of melody to be loved by all.
Amar Mohile composes Theme Music, an instrumental piece, with Clint and Joy rendering the vocals. It stands out among the rest for its musical arrangements. Joy pens the lyrics that are minimal.
In all Manzar and Pyar To Hona Hi Tha can be considered the highlights of the album. Both the songs are different from the rest and are sure to be etched in the minds of the audience for a long time.
