Verdict: Multifarious talents offer just ordinary songs.
Amaal Malikand Ankit Tiwarihave landed on strong footing in the Hindi film industry. Their kind of music appeals to the masses. However, Airliftproves to be a weak horse in the race. It does not disappoint right away but does very little to leave any faint memory of the compositions by Amaal and Ankit.
The music directors offer five songs in the voices of Arijit Singh, Divya Kumar, Tulsi Kumar, Ankit Tiwari, Brijesh Shandilya and K.K.Soch Na Sake is a mildly wandering track composed in a duet version by Arijit Singh, Tulsi Kumar and Amaal Malik alongside a solo version by Arijit Singh. The track creates a happy mood with the uplifting tune. Soch Na Sake and Tu Bhoola Jise are the moderately well done songs from Airlift.
K.K.’s charm helps create a sense of belonging through Tu Bhoola Jise. Arijit Singh and Ankit Tiwari team up for another track Dil Cheez Tujhe Dedi which is very different from the other tracks of this album, and strikingly similar to Khaled‘s Didi. The peppy tune and funky lyrics in this song though change the course of music for Airlift but barely create an impression. The last track is a countryside song in Punjabi called Mera Nachan Nu. Like the other songs, this one too does nothing to make you go back for a second listen.
Airlift is a music album that can be given a pass, while the wait for the film’s release continues.
