Abhishek Varman’s much-awaited film Kalank is finally hitting the theatres on 17th April. Starring Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur, Madhuri Dixit Nene and Sanjay Dutt, the magnum opus is produced by Karan Johar and is set in 1940s. While the teaser and the trailer of Kalank got everyone excited and jumping with joy, we are here to find out how good is the music album of this big budget film. So without wasting any more time, let’s dive into it right away.

Ghar More Pardesiya is the first track in the album and it’s sung by Vaishali Mhade and Shreya Ghoshal. It’s a celebration song though with a very strong classical touch. Various instruments have also been used while composing this number but you need to hear the song closely to figure that out. The song is beautiful with fresh and upbeat music and the video is equally good as well. You get to see Madhuri Dixit Nene and Alia Bhatt dancing together is an absolute visual delight. So overall, this track is an audio-visual treat for all the music lovers out there. Also, there is a radio version but it’s almost same as the original version.

Next on the album is First Class sung by Arijit Singh and Neeti Mohan. This one is a typical Bollywood dance number with fun lyrics and foot-tapping music. Both Arijit and Neeti have done a fab job crooning this number which is high on energy and will certainly get you grooving. First class sure has the potential to become the next big chartbuster. Just like the first song, the video of this one is also worth watching courtesy Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani. But should you add this song to your playlist? Definitely, I say!

The third song is the title track of Kalank which again has been crooned by Arijit Singh. It’s a romantic song but has a very Sufi touch to it and that makes it even more beautiful and soothing to ears. Amitabh Bhattacharya has to be credited here for coming up with such amazing lyrics. It’s certainly the highlight of this song. Whether you’re in love or not, the Kalank title track will appeal to you if love good music that makes you feel at peace. There is also a duet and a bonus version of the title track and both of them are equally good as the original one.

Tabaah Ho Gaye is next which is has Shreya Ghoshal behind the mic. This one is a slow, classical number which has Madhuri showing off her moves. Though Tabaah Ho Gaye is a good hear overall, it’s my least favourite song from the album. Maybe because it’s a bit too slow and doesn’t pack a punch like the other songs do. While I may not add this one to my playlist, you guys can hear this song once and then decide what to do.

Then we have Aira Gaira which is sung by Antara Mitra, Javed Ali and Tushar Joshi. It’s a full on dance number with quirky lyrics and thumping music. Featuring Kriti Sanon, Varun Dhawan and Aditya Roy Kapur, Aira Gaira is more of a visual delight because of these three stars shaking a leg together. As a song, Aira Gaira is pretty ordinary. But if you want to hear this one than watch the video along and you might like it a little bit more. There is also an extended version of this track which is almost the same so it doesn’t matter which one you prefer to hear.

Last on the album is Rajvaadi Odhni sung by Jonita Gandhi. This one adds a bit of  Rajasthani flavour to the music album. Again, it sounds more like a celebratory number with high energy music but somehow I wasn’t hooked to Rajvaadi Odhni as much as I was to Ghar More Pardesiya. I wouldn’t mind hearing this song on radio or otherwise but I won’t go out my way to download this track.

All in all, the music album of Kalank is quite impressive with a lot of variety. But if I have to pick my favourite then I would go with Kalank title track and First class without a doubt. The rest of the songs are also worth hearing but not sure if they will find a place on my playlist.
