Tumhi Ho Bandhu amazingly beautiful song which is already a big hit. A very fresh, foot-tapping number, beautifully sung by Kavita Seth along with Neeraj Shridhar. Best thing about this song is Irshad Kamil's lyrics. He wrote some great lines, it too have some Sufiana touch to it.
Lag yaar gale le saar meri,
Mujhe Kya parwah iss duniya ki,
Tu jeet meri jag har meri,
Mein hun hi nahi iss duniya ki.
Tu paas mere, jag paas mere
Main hoon hi nahi iss duniya ki
Chadhi mujhe yaari teri aisi, jaise Daaru Desi describes three friends' joyful life who loves each others company. It is a nice track and hit before the music release. well sung by Benny Dayal and Pareshaan fame singer Shalmali Kholgade.
Yaarian is sung by Agnee's lead vocalist K Mohan and Shilpa Rao, two beautiful husky voices. This song has Coldplay touch, Especially starting and the ending of the song is very much inspired/copied from Coldplay's music. There is one more version of this song which is sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and Arijit Singh. Which sounds very much original. But of course main version is better. It is sure shot a hit song.
MUST LISTEN to Coldplay's In My Place
Second hand Jawani - Desi but classy, dance number.
Sung by Punjabi Bhangra singer Miss Pooja, Neha Kakkar and Pungi singer Nakash Aziz (Neha and Nakash both have been the contestant of Indian Idol). Pritam did a nice job here, he showed some madness. And Amitabh Bhattacharya wrote some weird but nice fun lyrics as he did in Pyar Ki Pungi.
Tera naam Japdi phiran is sung by Pakistani singer Javed Bashir, Nikhil D'Souza and Shefali Alvares. Javed sang the Punjabi portions and English portions are sung by the other two. a nice track.
Here comes the magical number Luttna. Luttna is a Sufi song sung by Dr. Masuma Anwar, Sahir Ali Bagga and Anupam Amod. and here Masuma Anwar steals the show. Pakistani style of pronunciation sounds great like speaking 'Baaher' instead of 'Baahar'.
Irshad Kamil wrote some beautifully great stuff, Kudos to him! Jitni taareef ki jaaye kum hai.
Log gawaande dil ishqe mein, Maine apna aap ganwaaya
Phir bhi mera mera kuj haaye, mere sone yaar ko bhaaya
Hope we will listen to Masuma in future too and this kind of music will keep coming. A great composition by Sahir Ali Bagga.
Jugni is a Punjabi folk song which was sung by Pakistani singer Arif Lohar in Coke Studio. Now this song is part of Cocktail music album. It is a nice track. Coke studio version was sung by Arif Lohar and Meesha. But we here gets the Katiya Karoon singer Harshdeep Kaur, her voice makes this version a bit different.
Cocktail is the best commercial music album released since Rockstar. Best of 2012 so far. A complete package.
