Ek Tha Tiger was in news since it was first announced and there are thus good expectations from the music
album of this movie. Also as this movie belongs to Salman Khan
, the expectation from its music album thus exceeds.
Recently we have heard some of the most melodious and rocking numbers from his last releases whether he is playing cop or bodyguard. He will again be getting in to the same dancing genre for the movie Ek Tha Tiger. Here in this movie he plays the role of a secret services agent and music here is composed by Sohail Sen.
The music album begins with the track 'Mashallah' by guest composers Sajid-Wajid. This song has the setting of Middle East as a major part of this movie is set in the same region. This song brings Wajid behind the mike and this one also appears in the remix version. The theme here is quite addictive and you would like repeated hearing of this song. Shreya Ghoshal suits in well too. This song is written by Kausar Munir.
The album is then taken over by Sohail Sen with the song 'Laapata'. For this song, Palak Muchhal is behind the mike and she closely sounds like Shreya in this song. She is joined by K.K. and this song is written by Anvita Dutt. The overall impact of this song is quite good however cannot be termed as an excellent one. The tune also sounds a little old one.
The next one suits Salman really well and this song is titled 'Banjaara'. This song is delivered really well by Sukhwinder Singh and this one brings in delight for listeners in the music album. The overall energy of the song is quite fascinating and lifts up the music album. This song is a complete winner. The song also appears in the remix version. This one will surely be a chartbuster with lyrics by Neelesh Misra.
The album moves forward with another number by Kausar Munir titled 'Saiyaara'. This song is a wonderful composition which depicts hard work and efforts of Sohail Sen as a composer. The further appeal to this song is added by Mohit Chauhan being behind the mike. This one is a romantic track supported by Taraannum Mallik. Both of them together make it a smooth flowing song and are the right kind that one would be waiting for while listening to this album.
Last track to appear in this album is the 'Tiger's Theme' composed by Julius Packiam. This one is the theme track of the movie and it includes around 3 minute’s long musical piece that would surely captivate your attention.
This one will be one of the biggest theme compositions this year.
Music album of this movie Ek Tha Tiger is a good one but one expects much more because of the buzz created by this movie which has increased expectations. None of the compositions can be termed as really outstanding and overall effect of this movie album is not too consistent. The tracks 'Banjaara', 'Mashallah' and 'Saiyaara' would engage audiences.
