Ik junoon‘s enthusiasm is highly infectious, particularly the energy in the arrangements and delightful vocals. Alyssa Mendosa is in total control of the dreamy Khaabon ke parindey; its jazzy, restless orchestration is a sheer joy to absorb. Hrithik, Farhan and Abhay’s vocals gel beautifully with Maria Del Mar Fernandez in the gorgeously latino Senorita, while the mildly retro’ish phrases in Sooraj ki baahon make for a zingy listen. However, Dil dhadakne and Der lagi lekin, despite their skillful assembly, produce tedium, while Farhan’s ode to living, Toh zinda ho tum, passes muster. Nuanced, mature and engaging soundtrack from the trio!
