We Are Family (Music review), Hindi – Shankar Ehsaan Loy

There is an overriding soul-style sound in this soundtrack that seems very appealing. It’s more pronounced in the piano-laden Reham O Karam, that starts blissfully serene before escalating its notes, and in Sun le dua, an all-out mellow tune that rides entirely on Bela Shende’s Shreya’s scintillating vocals. Rahat-led Aankhon mein is predictably sweet and that is saying a lot, while the Sonu-Shreya duet Hamesha & Forever has at least a captivating chorus going for it. Jailhouse Rock’s desi twist, Dil khol ke, seems like sacrilege, but works eventually due to Anushka…and Suraj Jagan’s vocals! Karan Johar’ish predictability, with a new-found maturity.
