    • M. M. Kreem's Exceptional Soundtrack.

      Special 26 music rating: 8 out of 10(Sumit wrote on Jan 12 2013 4:59AM)

      It's M. M. Kreem's another orotund and anacreontic album after Saaya, Jism, Sur: The Melody of Life , Rog, and Dhokha. Also Neeraj Pandey of A Wednesday fame is back with a fresh and enthralling heist drama film. Himesh Reshammiya also composed a desi punjabi track for the film. The album is a blend of Placid, Soulful and classic tracks.

      1. Album starts with an austere and docile melody "Tujh Sang Lagee" beautifully rendered by K.K. & M.M. Kreem. M.M. Kreem nicely mingled the efficacy of pure rajasthani folk music and sufi ballad aroma. Dholak, claps, harmonium, sarangi, M.M. Kreem cordially used all these traditional instruments to enrich the song with benign tone. K.K. sung very prettily. Nice!

      2. "Gore Mukhde Pe Zulfa Di Chaava" sung by Aman Trikha, Shreya Ghoshal & Shabab Sabri, it's a situational track with traditional punjabi musical arrangements. The song is composed by Himesh Reshammiya, and it is inspired by two different tracks 'Teri Tirchi Nazar Mein Hai Jadoo' - Loafer (1996) originally composed by Anand Milind and 'Tu Hoor Pari' - Khiladi 786 (2012) composed by Himesh Reshammiya. Lyrics are nice but the impact of track is average, the pattern of instruments like Tumbi, Dholki, Dhol, and Claps used similar to 'Tu Hoor Pari' and the Harmonium part is similar to 'Teri Tirchi Nazar Mein Hai Jadoo'. Aman Trikha, Shreya Ghoshal & Shabab Sabri all have done good job, but due to lack of fresh and listenable timbre it would be an Average Track!

      3. "Kaun Mera" is another truly melodious composition by M. M. Kreem euphoniously rendered by Chaitra Ambadipudi. We can sensate the M. M. Kreem's touch in this scrumptious song, lithe piano, delightful violin and strings everything used grotesquely. Chaitra's succulent mellifluously driven vocals makes the song more tranquil. It is a soothing experience capable to reduce stress and tension. A truly placid sonnet! Recommended!

      4. "Mujh Mein Tu" sung by Keerthi Sagathia, it's a solemn song with exceptional musical arrangements. Enchanting melodic work through unparalleled tincture of poignant lyrics and appealing electric guitar, cello, strings and hard drum kicks makes the song competent creation, Keerthi Sagathia has done terrible job and sung brilliantly. Nice!

      5. After four fully romantic tracks "Kaun Mera (Male)" sung by Papon, it's a recreated version of 'Kaun Mera' with some major changes in beats, as M. M. Kreem annexed drum kicks and electric guitar to give utter pace. Papon's soft and perceptible vocals sets the song totally different from the another version. Nice!

      6. "Dharpakad" sung by Bappi Lahiri, it's a situational track which depicts the actual work of Special 26 and police investigation with their strive to catch Special 26. It's a very nice and suitable track for the twists and situation happens in the film.

      7. Here we have another scrumptious version of Kaun Mera, "Kaun Mera (Female)" sung by Sunidhi Chauhan, we may call it the sonic version. Sunidhi Chauhan's silken toned voice fascinates us and create a calming realm. Ear soothing!

      8. "Mujh Mein Tu (Version 2)", it's the aural version of 'Mujh Mein Tu' rendered by M.M.Kreem. M.M.Kreem's mesmerising voice easily sustain the sense of everlasting susceptibility and heed. Soulful!
