Music Review: War Chhod Na Yaar (2013)

Director: Faraz Haider
Cast: Sharman Joshi, Soha Ali Khan & Jaaved Jaaferi
Music Director: Aslam Keyi 
Lyricist: Faraz Haider, Bebak Amrohi & Azeem Shirazi

1- War Chhod Na Yaar - (Bappi Lahiri, Rimi Dhar & Candy Dzouza): Fairly catcy song, but nothing special. Gets too serious but fails to hit right spot. Though message is good. Rating 2/5

2- Main Jaagun Aksar - (Javed Ali, Ali Aslam & Shreya Ghoshal): Qawwali influence and some good lyrics. This song is not exceptionally well, but good to listen if you miss old Alka-Udat romantic songs. Javed Ali sounds more like Sonu Nigam in this song. Rating 3.5/5

3- Phat Gaya - (Daler Mehndi): Forgetable song with ordinary lyrics. Daler Mehndi is hugely wasted here. Rating 1/5

4- Mharo Desh Mahaan - (Kailash Kher): Nothing special in the song except lyrics are patriotic. Rating 1.5/5

5- Khwabon Si Jo - (Naresh Iyer): The song is just tolerable. Too old composition. I don't think someone will ever want ot hear it twice. Rating 1/5

6- Jai Jawan - (Sukhwinder Singh): Sukhwinder vocals are as usual good. Song is strictly below average. Rating 1.5/5

7- Kurban - (Sonu Nigam & Javed Khan): Sonu Nigam rescues the song. Melody is tuneful but has not lasting impact. Rating 2.5/5

8- Fauji - (Mika Singh & Various Artist): Mika Singh behind the mike along with 3 other singers. You may like the song if you are a Fauji and sing this song as anthem, otherwise no chance. Rating 1.5/5

9- Ishq Mein - (Divya Kumar & Various Artist): A good song with good lyrics. Sounds good and will grow on you. Rating 3.5/5

10- Main Jaagun Aksar - (Shreya Ghoshal, Shujath & Ali Aslam): Shujath Ali Khan replaces Javed Ali in the song. There is no significant difference between both songs except Shujath. Rating 3/5

11- Mharo Desh Mahaan (Ethnic Mix) - (Kailash Kher): Just a remix of a not-so-impressive song. Rating 1.5/5

12- Khwabon Si Jo - (Ali Azmat & Sujith Kumar): Better not to say anything. Rating 0.5/5

13- Fauji (Club Mix) - (Mika Singh, Luv O Trigger & Marianne): Stereotype remix. Rating 1/5
