Dilwale starring Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon in lead roles is all set to hit the theaters next week and naturally the excitement is high. The film’s music album was released recently. Composed by Pritam, it is a seven track album. Let’s see how the cheerful or awful, the music of this Rohit Shetty film is.

Gerua – Dilwale Music Review

The first song in the album is Gerua, a typical romantic number. Sung by Arijit Singh and Antara Mitra, the song received more praises for it’s mesmersising video as the pair shot in the picturesque locations of Iceland. As the audio track, Gerua does not turn out to be exceptional. It is quite a been-there-heard-that kind of a number. Of course, with Shah Rukh and Kajol’s chemistry, the song will certainly get a special fan following.

Manma Emotion Jaage Re – Dilwale Music Review

Before the release of this song, it was being touted to be the club song of the year. Well, unfortunately it does not turn out to be so. The Pritam track takes inspiration from Fifty Harmony’s Worth It. Sung by Amit Mishra, Anushka Manchanda and Antara Mitra, it is not a song you will enjoy for quite long. The peppy number is low on longevity.

Janam Janam – Dilwale Music Review

Janam Janam is one of the most romantic songs from the album and possibly my favrite too. Arijit is the star of the song, he croons it with such love that it is impossible not to fall for it. Female vocals have been crooned by Antara Mitra, The song was released recently and with Shah Rukh- Kajol going the Raj Kapoor-Nargis way with rains and one umbrella, the track has already become the most romantic track of the year.

Tukur Tukur – Dilwale Music Review

Tukur Tukur is a frolicky number that captures the spirit of Goa. Once again, it has been sung by Arijit Singh, who seems to have become Pritam’s favorite with this soundtrack. It seems, the song will have an interesting video. Some beats of this song also remind us of Bajrangi Bhaijaan’s ‘Chicken song’.

Daayere – Dilwale Music Review

Daayere has nothing special in it. The song is similar to a lot of Pritam’s own previous works. Arijit croons it but there is nothing special that he offers with it. The song is a one-time listen kind of a song.

Premika – Dilwale Music Review

Premika is another peppy number in the album. It seems it will be pictured on Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon. Benny Dayal and Kanika Kapoor croon this number. The lyrics are not very appealing, nor is the music. Even though it has catchy beats, it lacks the quality to actually make you dance on it let alone any foot tapping.

Dilwale Theme – Dilwale Music Review

The Dilwale Theme is a mashup created by DJ Chetas. It is a remix of Janam Janam with Arijit’s vocals only in bits and pieces. The mashup is impressive with a good EDM backing and this could really hit off well with the party circuits.

The Last Word – Dilwale Music Review

The Dilwale soundtrack is quite average. None of the songs other than Janam Janam truly stands out. The other songs are more like a one-time listen and won’t make it to your playlists.I am going with a 2.5/5 for the album.
