Verdict: The music of Roy has melody, rhythm, funk and a gritty texture much like the visuals from the teaser.
The album is a mixed bag of surprises by popular names from the Bollywood music industry. Contributors Ankit Tiwari, Amaal Malik and Meet Bros Anjjan fuse the soundtrack with party numbers and love ballads. This make Roy potentially one among the best music albums’ of 2015.
In the voice of Arijit Singh and Aditi Singh Sharma, Sooraj Dooba Hai is a highly energetic song from Roy. The track has already gained popularity and is on its way to be the party anthem in the first quarter of the year. Tu Hai Ki Nahi emerges as a contrast to the highly lit elements from the album. This romantic song in the voice of Ankit Tiwari has beautifully written lyrics by Abhendra Kumar Upadhyay. The song pitches a whistle which will soon be hummed for melancholy in melody. Both Sooraj Dooba Hai and Tu Hai Ki Nahi have second versions that vary on some counts but are still as intriguing as the originals.
Boond Boond and Yaara Re are composed keeping an eye on the mystery element of the film and at the same time bringing the love quotient of Roy to the fore. Though the tracks are not instantly appealing but repeated listening makes the listener grow fond. The only and fundamental problem with the music album is vocals that become familiar and repetitive after a point. Four out of seven tracks have Ankit Tiwari lending vocals which perhaps could have been altered with another seasoned singer’s voice.
Nonetheless, Chittiyaan Kalaiyaan adds reason to shake a leg and that wrist as the song suggests. After Baby Doll, Kanika Kapoor adds another dimension to this album with her unique voice. The track brings with it lively music and bohemian beats. The song also features a rap by Meet Bros Anjjan that is catchy. All in all Roy is an appetite killer that serves the right burp!
