Jodi Breakers is in high air these days and this because the pairing of Bipasha Basu and R. Madhavan. And R. Madhavan too is quite happy as for the very first time he got a chance to play the single lead in a Bollywood movie. The movie has been produced under the banner of Prasar Vision and been directed by Ashwini Chaudhary. The music of the film album has been scored by Salim-Sulaiman and the lyrics been done by Irshad Kamil and Shabbir Ahmad.
Kunwara (Singer: Salim Merchant)
Salim Merchant opens the album with an energetic number and allures the souls with his electrifying singing. The lyrics and the music gel well with each other. It is a good song to hear.
Bipasha (Singers: Shradha Pandit and Shadab Faridi)
The next song on the album cover is the one that is after the name of the sultry bombshell of Bollywood Bipasha Basu who plays the lead in the movie. Shradha Pandit excels in the singing and Shadab does brilliance with the rendition. The song is gorgeous both lyrically and musically.
Darmiyan (Singers: Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan and Clinton Cerejo)
Pakistani popular singer Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan (who belongs to the famous classical gharana of Indo-Pak Sham Chaurasi) does the super brilliance with the rendition and on the other hand Clinton provides ample support to him. Lyrics are great and music is spongy.
Mujhko Teri Zaroorat Hai (Singers: Salim Merchant, Shadab Faridi and Shradha)
The trio of singers impresses but what do not impress are lyrics and music.
Jab Main Tumhare Saath Hun (Singers: Benny Dayal, Shilpa Rao and Salim Merchant)
Benny, Shilpa and Salim all attract the listeners with their crooning in this foot tapping number. The lyrics hold values and so does music! Go for it.
Darmiyaan (Repirse) (Singer: Shreya Ghoshal)
The Reprise version is sung by Shreya Ghoshal who plays magic with the rendition. The sugary vocals drag the listeners from their feet. Do listen it.
Bipasha (Remix) (Singers: Shradha Pandit and Salim Merchant)
The remix version of Bipasha is boring. In this version, Salim replaces Shadab. A mundane piece of song, it does not have an oomph factor.
Mujhko Teri Zaroorat Hai (Remix) (Singers: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Shadab)
Mujhko Teri’s remix version brings Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, another Pakistani brilliant singer who is ruling Bollywood scene for last many years, and he does fabulous job. Shadab too allures. The song is a treat to listen to.
The album to Jodi Breakers is a spongy treat and carries mellifluous tracks to stay with.
