Sultan stars Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma. It is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and produced by Yash Raj Films. The music has been composed by Vishal-Shekhar and lyrics are penned by Irshad Kamil.
It is an unusual soundtrack for Salman starrer. Most of his recent films have traditional dance and romantic numbers. But here Vishal-Shekhar has tried to experiment in his composing. The albums consist of seven original songs and two reprises.
Now let's take a look at Sultan music review.
The composer has tried to balance out the rap and melody-folk factor. The tagline Baby Ko Bass Pasand Hai is catchy though the lyrics do not hold meanings. Vishal Dadlani did a great job in the singing apartment but the composition looks outdated. There is also a rap by Badshah which is just about okay. The lifeline of the song will be 1-2 months. (2.5/5)
After a while, Rahat is singing for Salman for Jag Ghoomeya. It is simply composed with the beautiful lyrics. Rahat is soothingly beautiful while singing. But again the composition is not up to the mark. (3.5/5)
After first two songs, we got a feeling that it will be another Salman's regular soundtrack. But there are some surprises awaited in the packages. With the combo of Mika-Salman, you will expect a party dance number. But here the result is surprisingly beautiful. Full marks to the composers and Mika Singh who come out of his comfort zone. (3.5/5)
Sultan title song is an inspirational track. Within one minute into song and you know that it will be worthy to listen. Sukhwinder Singh is so good with high notes and his voice perfectly suits the song. But in the last half, it loses its momentum because of its writing. The song can become a range in coming days. (3.5/5)
A funny kind of song. Mohit could have been used better considering his caliber. Both singers did a good job and the result is a feel good song. (2.5/5)
A mixture of Sufi and 90's music where the music setting is minimal and more focus is on singing and writing. The lyrics are deep written and you can listen to this on loop and yet will not get bored. (4/5)
Another experimental track with Desi Matti flavour and English club mix which will become an instant hit. It will be more liked in Haryana, Punjab, and UP. (3.5/5)
A reprise version of Jag Ghoomeya. The tone of the song makes it different from the original one. You get a sad feeling while listening to this in Neha Basin's voice. (3/5)
Sultan is a breath of fresh air and is a break from what Salman has been doing recently. Except from first two songs, Vishal-Shekhar has experimented in all of his songs. It will take some time for songs to pick up as tones are fresh. Irshad Kamil has also spread his magic in the writing.
The album has a lot of North Indian flavour. There could have been one more inspirational track. Overall Sultan music is a winner.
