Tum Bin 2 is releasing this Friday. The film stars Neha Sharma, Aditya Seal and Aashim Gulati and it is directed by Anubhav Sinha. Tum Bin 2 is sequel to 2001 film ‘Tum Bin’. Here’s our review on Tum Bin 2’s Music Album:
Music Director: Ankit Tiwari and Nikhil-Vinay
Lyricist: Manoj Muntashir
Rating: 2.5/5 stars
This is a recreational version of the original ‘Teri Fariyad’ song, sung by the late master Jagjit Singh. Teri Fariyad is crooned by Rakha Bhardwaj and she does an impressive job. It’s difficult to match the level of the original but this song doesn’t disappoint. It’s serene and heartwarming.
Teri Fariyad (Extended Version)
Extended version is a treat for the music lovers. The song is a complete journey of love, heartbreak and the sense of longing for someone. The song has a lovely background score which never gets dull and sustains the pace of the track. Rekha Bharadwaj and Jagjit Singh give a classic treatment with their voices. This song is like a beautiful orchestra which displays different moods of love through the use of multiple musical instruments. It is 10 minutes in length but you never want it to end.
Ishq Mubarak starts really well and the upbeat music during the ‘Ishq Mubarak’ wordings is effective but apart from that, rest of the song doesn’t offer anything impressive. The change in tempo in the middle of the track would have made a difference. Eventually, despite Arijit Singh’s crooning, it is a pretty basic song.
This is a pleasant song which makes you enjoy the romantic vibes. Arijit Singh and Tulsi Kumar make a good combo for a duet. Dekh Lena has good beats too. It won’t have a long memorability as a love track but will give a good effect in the film.
Title song of the film has to be remarkable as it gives the signature identity to the music album and the film as well. Tum Bin track doesn’t really give that identity to the album. The song is low in beats and nothing much really happens in its background score which will entice you for any kind of emotions. After a while, it becomes boring as it lacks the energy. It is an ignorable track. One can hope the song will have a strong hold in the film.
Masta is a ‘mast’ song. Vishal Dadlani is always amazing with his singing and he makes this track utterly joyful. Masta is groovy and has a pleasant music. The only thing they should have done is give Neeti Mohan a better part. She is a good singer but in this song, her voice was not used properly. But, overall, this is a fun experience.
When a variety of musical instruments come together, it gives a versatile touch to the song. Dil Nawaziyaan is that versatile song. There are so many things happening in the song. First of all, Arko Pravo Mukherjee and Payal Dev’s singing is a happy gesture in the track. Then, the use of classical tone in between was smart and Manoj Muntashir’s lyrics are lovely. The change in tempo and addition of English narration make the song a fresh breath of music.
This song doesn’t really fit into the album and its beats are also not exciting enough to even call it a party track. Jaeger Bomb has its moments but only for a fraction of time. The score is pretty ordinary and the lyrics are generic too.
Tum Bin 2 is a decent music album. It has some good songs such as Teri Fariyad, Dil Nawaziyaan and Masta but other songs are not up to the mark. Also, in comparison to Tum Bin, which was musically brilliant, Tum Bin 2 doesn’t match its reputation. Overall, this album is borderline satisfactory.
