      Barring Fashion, Madhur Bhandarkar has always been loyal to Shamir Tandon for the music of his movies. He brings in Shamir Tandon once again, but this time also gets the hot music property, Sharib-Toshi to jointly compose music of his latest venture Jail.

      Heavy guitaring marks the beginning of 'Saiyaan Ve' which is a Sharib-Toshi composition. Written & Sung by Toshi, this dance no. has certain elements of rock in it but at the same time gives you a feeling of deja vu. Even the lyrics are plain ordinary. But what comes as a surprise is the shameless rip-off of the initial flute tune from the song 'Lut Jaaon' (Karzzzz) which is used in the song before the stanza begins in form of guitaring! Anyhow, the song doesnt impress a lot, and manages to be just an average fare. The song later comes in the form of remix and rock version, in which you have Sharib & Neil joining in Toshi. Both these versions dont help to take the track any further!

      Rock flavour is on once again, this time for the painful sad song 'Milke Yun Laga' which is once again composed by Sharib-Toshi but sung by Sharib. Lyrics are penned by Sharib-Turaz which is somewhat better than Saiyaan Ve. This song does impress somewhat and grows on in more hearings.

      Done with Sharib-Toshi, now we have Shamir Tandon coming to the helms. And how horribly does he make his entry as it couldnt have been worse than 'Bareily ke Bazaar Mein'. Horrible song to say the least, this Sonu Kakkar song is a straightaway rejected one!! To make matters worse, the song even appears in a remix version!!

      Finally, we have the Lata Mangeshkar track 'Daata Sun Le' which is a track for Jail inmates who pray to God daily. The song is extremely slow and it is like an icing on the cake to hear Lata ji's voice after such a long gap. However, the composition could have been better thus making the song a gem. The composition instead is quite okay, and thus will make this nightingale's song a forgettable affair.

      On the whole, the music of the movie is a huge disappoint with some irritating tracks like Bareily Ke Bazaar Mein. The only song that impresses somewhat is Milke Yun Laga, but that is it about this album!
