Banjo (Bulbul Tarang) takes the centre stage in the entire album and in the hands of Vishal-Shekhar, we get the uber-cool version of it with a grunge street rock feel along with the foot-tapping dhol overlays.
Vishal with his powerful vocals proves his mettle in Bappa Re, the ultimate song, perfect for the Ganesh Chaturthi festival.
Hriday Gattani justifies Udan Choo in his soft voice. Though, the end portion where the dhol and the banjo takes over the song seems more of a intrusion in this otherwise beautiful romantic song.
Reham-O-Karam by Ajay Gogavale is a song perfect for all you contemporary dancers. It does remind one of Maula Mere Le-Le Meri Jaan from Chak de India. One had to expect a motivational/philosophical/spiritual song in the movie revolving around the rise of music artists.
Banjo solos by Rashid Bashir Khan and Kishore Mohite do impress and solidify the music of the entire album.
Pee-Paa Ke with its portions of English, Marathi and Hindi raps reminds one of 90s music but fails to impress. An average song.
Nakash Aziz, Shalmali Kholgade and Vishal Dadlani win it all in the song Rada, where the lively rhythm seems to bring all the energy like a live rock show and it sure sounds good.
The album ends with Om Ganpataye Namah Deva by Nakash Aziz and Vishal. A good song with its mixture of soft vocals, high-pitched chorus and an unexpected English chorus by Vishal which takes by surprise.
