Emraan Hashmi is finally back in game with his latest release Why Cheat India. Directed by Soumik Sen, the trailer of the film was quite impressive and got everyone excited about Hashmi’s return to the big screen after a long time. 

While we’ll have to wait to see how the film fares at the box office, for now, let’s check out the music of Why Cheat India.

Daaru Wargi is the first song of the album which is not only sung by Guru Randhawa but also written and composed by him. It’s a typical punjabi number with foot-tapping music and fun lyrics. I loved how the song starts off and Daaru Wargi has this Guru Randhawa vibe which is very evident. Overall, it’s a nice number to dance on at a party or just to hear when you want a song to pep up your mood in general. So by all means go ahead and hear this one, it wouldn’t hurt at all.

The second song of the album is titled Taiyaari. Sung and composed by Soumik Sen, who has also directed the film, Taiyaari is a soft number but more like a situational track which is about students prepping for their exams. The lyrics, penned by Juhi Saklani, are spot on in the context of the film and it’s theme. Also, as a song on its whole, Taiyaari isn’t bad but it’s also not the kind of song you would want on your playlist. So its okay if you hear the song while watching the film, you don’t have go out of your way to download it.

Next on the list is Bappi Lahri’s popular romantic number Dil Mein Ho Tum from Vinod Khanna starter Satyamev Jayate. This old track has been beautifully recreated by Rochak Kohli and sung by Armaan Malik. Even if you haven’t heard the original version, you’ll end up liking this one. It’s a soft, romantic song and Armaan’s voice is just magic. There is not much to say about Dil Mein Ho Tum except that you have to add this song on you’re playlist and you’ll definitely end up hearing it on loop.

Phir Mulaaqat is the fourth track on the list and its Jubin Nautiyal who has crooned this number. This one is also a slow romantic song but sounds a bit like ghazal courtesy the harmonium music and the tabla beats that have been infused throughout Phir Mulaaqat. It’s a decent track and I totally loved the beginning part of the song. I so wanted to love this track but I ended just liking it. There is a female version of the song as well and it’s sung by RII. Again, I liked the how the song started off but eventually found it just about okay.

Then we have Kaamyaab which is by the famous band Agnee. It’s a fun track with beautiful lyrics and is super easy on the ears. The music, especially lifts the song to another level. And also brownie points to Agnee’s lead vocalist Mohan Kannan for killing the track with his sexy voice. Hear it once and I am sure you’ll will like it too. It’s funky, a bit different and at the same time very relatable.

Last song on the list is Stupid Saiyaan sung by Prabhjee Kaur. It’s a full on dance number with peppy music and Hinglish lyrics. While it’s a good hear, I didn’t like it to the extent of adding to my playlist. Having said that, I wouldn’t mind playing this track while hosting a party or at a wedding for a fun round of dance session. 

In a nutshell, the music of Why Cheat India is surprisingly pretty good. Daaru Wargi, Dil Mein Hai Tu and Kaamyaab are my favourite ones from the lot. Stupid Saiyaan and Phir Mulaaqat are definitely worth hearing once. And as for Taiyaari, it’s my least favourite track from the album.
