Album Review: Rustom's soundtrack lives up to the hype; well..almost

MUMBAI: Akshay Kumar and Ileana D'Cruz starrer ‘Rustom’, a film based on real life story of a naval officer KM Nanavati not just has an interesting storyline to narrate, but also an appealing album. The jukebox of Rustom is out and it is a beautiful one. This assortment of different music composers offers a beautiful boutique of songs, which one would love to add to their set of favourite songs.

Tere Sang Yaara
Song - Tere Sang Yaara
Singer - Atif Aslam
Music - Arko
Lyrics - Manoj Muntashir

It’s an unforgettable love song that would tempt you to break into a ballroom dance with your partner. Arko has tried different tunes to make the music of this track more enriching and it has worked. Overall, ‘Tere Sang Yaara’ may not stand out for its differentiating factors, but Atif Aslam’s voice does make it lovable.

Tere Bin Yaara - Reprise
Song - Tere Bin Yaara - Reprise
Singer - Arko
Music – Arko
Lyrics – Arko

The ‘Rustom’ album also has the reprise version of ‘Tere Sang Yaara’ titled ‘Tere Bin Yaara’. This track too has a haunting feel and tune that stays with you. Arko has not just given music to this one, but he has also written and sung it.

Rustom Vahi
Song - Rustom Vahi
Singer - Sukriti Kakar
Music - Raghav Sachar
Lyrics - Manoj Muntashir

Sukriti Kakar’s voice successful takes this track in the right direction, but Raghav Sachar’s music fails to create the ‘wow’ factor. He seems to have taken references from Bollywood movies established in the 60s era. Thus, the song gives a déjà vu feel on and off.

Rustom Vahi – Male/ Rustom Vahi Theme/ Rustom Vahi – Marathi
Song - Rustom Vahi - Male
Singer - Jasraj Joshi
Music - Raghav Sachar
Lyrics - Manoj Muntashir

The theme song has three more versions, which include an instrumental version, a male version and a Marathi version. There is no doubt that the music of this track is gripping thus, the other versions of the song too sound power packed. The Marathi and the male version of the song have been sung by Jasraj Joshi.

Tay Hai
Song - Tay Hai
Singer - Ankit Tiwari
Music - Ankit Tiwari
Lyrics - Manoj Muntashir

This is yet another beautiful rendition sung and composed by Ankit Tiwari. The man manages to turn heart break and sad songs into magical ones. One can definitely play this in loop.

Dekha Hazaro Dafaa
Song - Dekha Hazaro Dafaa
Singer - Arijit Singh and Palak Muchhal
Music - Jeet Gannguli
Lyrics - Manoj Muntashir

‘Dekha Hazaro Dafaa’ is a striking rendition by one of the best music directors of Bollywood. Gannguli has not created a whole new musical world her, but he has managed to put wonderful musical pieces together. Furthermore, the melodious voices of Arijit Singh and Palak Munchhal make it a memorable number.

Dhal Jaun Main
Song - Dhal Jaun Main
Singer - Jubin Nautiyal and Aakanksha Sharma
Music - Jeet Gannguli
Lyrics - Manoj Muntashir

This one too is a beautiful rendition by Gannguli. Both Jubin Nautiyal and Aakanksha Sharma have done a fabulous job here. We wonder where Muntashir manages to get those words from but, they always fit right. He has done an outstanding job in this album.

Jab Tum Hote Ho
Song - Jab Tum Hote Ho
Singer - Shreya Ghoshal
Music - Ankit Tiwari
Lyrics - Manoj Muntashir

It’s a sweet, melodious number, but we have heard Shreya Ghoshal sing similar numbers before. We wish Ankit Tiwari had tried something new here.

Check the jukebox here.
