Together with the needed-launched RA.One, Don 2 continues to be probably the most anticipated movie of the season. This is not whatsoever because both star Shah Rukh Khan in topline roles, but, in Don 2's situation, it is also since the movie will expand around the classic Don mythos.
Directed by Farhan Akhtar, the movie stars, aside from SRK, Priyanka Chopra inside a leading role again. The crime thriller's soundtrack consists by Shankar Ehsaan Loy, who appear to trying an idea album of sorts here.
The idea feel from the album will take off in the first "track" itself. Really, aa raha hoon palat ke is much more of the dialogue promo from Shah Rukh Khan themself that creates the premise from the movie and album in general, using its mysterious feel.
The electronic beats and plans of zaraa dil ko thaam lo dominate the album inside a perfect, seamless segue in the opener. But, how do you put this? In plain words, this a person's a little thanda. Anusha Mani does fine around the female leads, however the lacklustre tune within the verses don't quite allow the track get. Vishal Dadlani tries his better to lift the number's spirits in the refrain, but can't assist the situation much.
The wonderful Usha Uthup is available in on hai ye ma. The lyrics and also seem from the track make that one intensely situational. With horns, moving percussion along with a whole load of electronic sounds, the track accumulates an up-to-date large band feel, which matches perfectly with Uthup's jazzy vocals. Clearly, the track creates a fascinating listen. The later remix from the track, changed by Shane, is really a fair listen too.
Sunitha Sarathy's sultry vocals open dushman mera, featuring the classic 'Don't theme like a major hook. With running beats keeping the pace, the urgent feel of that one is very thrilling.
The only real grouse you could possibly hold from this track is perfect for the cheesy kind of lyrical interludes that interrupt the track every every now and then. Still, the relaxation from the track a lot more than comprises for these couple of staid points.
The following number, the king has returned, features Sunitha Sarathy on vocals again, and it is credited because the theme from the movie around the album. The track is really a heavily changed version from the old Don theme in the original Bachchan classic and also the later Shah Rukh remake. Completely electronic, with couple of non-synthesised interludes, this might act as a dance track along with a club favourite, possibly, but a bit more.
However, if you are searching for a genuine worthy theme for that movie, take a look at KK's mujhko pehchaanlo, which sees the singers entirely form, by having a periodic line from Shah Rukh themself. The track works round the classic 'main hoon don' tune, replacing it using the jazzy, electronic believe that appears to become the flavors from the album. The track can also be reprised in an exceedingly interesting remix by Chilean techno maestro Ricardo Villalobos, that works out a brand new consider the classic Bollywood seem.
The ultimate entry around the album is entitled the Don waltz, and, is very literally, a waltz. The track requires a couple of sinister sounding turns among, but stays simple typically.
Though you will find a few significant tracks, overall, the soundtrack of Don 2 is a little of the disappointment. Because of the hype all around the movie, you might have expected a far more hook-laden, risk-taking collection from Shankar Ehsaan Loy. In the safe staidness, Don 2 becomes even boring. Hear if you are a die-hard Bollywood fanatic, but when you are searching for something to tap your ft to, this is not it.
