A Bollywood break-up album, built from a wealth of voices
For this remake of 2017 Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy, a collective force of vocalists convey the anguish of its self-destructive protagonist. Electric guitar riffs enhance the pained voices of Sachet Tandon on “Bekhayali”, Vishal Mishra on “Kaise Hua” and Arijit Singh on “Tujhe Kitna Chahne Lage”. Relief comes in with the Punjabi folk-fusion of “Mere Sohneya”, the strings-laden “Yeh Aaina” and the breezy “Pehle Pyaar”. The soundtrack concludes with two reprises of earlier ballads as Singh lends an earnest touch to “Bekhayali”, and Jubin Nauityal offers “Tujhe Kitna Chahein Aur”.
