Dostana is an album which offers a varied listening opportunity. It has some good numbers as well.
'Desi Girl' is the quintessential foot tapping number which finds its way into most Vishal Shekhar albums. The pace of the song does remind one of their recent 'Suno Ik Thi Kaanch Ki Gudiya' from Bachna Ae Haseeno'.
'Ma Da Laadla' is the cool, tongue in cheek Gen. X number while 'Shut Up & Bounce' is the one which will make its way to the dance parties and discotheques.
However the clincher is a melifluous song called 'Khabar Nahin'. The opening notes make one immediately want to know the name of the singer, and one is not surprised that it is indeed Amanat Ali of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa fame. Exquisitely sung for a singer so fresh in to the industry. Vishal and Shreya also embellish the song with their voices.
'Jaane Kyun' is a light hearted number, in the Bombay Vikings genre of music, while 'Kuch Kam' fails to connect somewhere.
All in all an album worth listening to.
