An album from Vishesh Films always boasts of some great melodious tunes,by and large they have used Pritam as the composer,but for this venture Debutant Harshit Saxena joins hand with Mithoon & Siddharth-Sangeet Haldipur.Expectations are high due to some superhit tracks composed by Anu Malik in the 1st Murder(2006).The album offers 8 tracks with 5 originals and 3 remix.
The 1st track Haal-e-Dil composed and sung by Debutant Harshit Saxena(Amul Star Voice Of India Fame) is a trademark "Bhatt's" tune.The song is hummable and will strike a chord instantly,however its on the same lines as "Maahi" from "Raaz-D mystery continues" by Sharib-Toshi.Harshit does a fair job as the lead vocalist,although the song is slight K.K'ish.Long way to go Harshit,you composed a brilliant tune.Chartbuster straightaway.
The song comes back in an Acoustic Version which is more of a Rock number high on drum beats.The special thing about this version is that Harshit has sung the whole song again in a completely different way.Both the versions are two separate songs and I liked the hard work done by him for both the versions.Fantastic.
The next track Aa Zara;composed by Sangeet-Siddharth;is the only seductive(a must for a movie like this) song in the album and it starts with a sultry scream in the voice of Sunidhi Chauhan.The song goes on the same track as Udi(Guzaarish-2010).Its a perfect track for Jacqueline Fernandez and will be loved more seeing her dancing on this one.The song comes later in a Reloaded Version and it seems to be a sequel to the song Aaj ki Raat(Don-2007) as it started,this version is fast paced and has a 90's feeling attached to it.Original is far better.
Surprise is the word when you hear the 3rd track named Aye Khuda;composed by Mithoon and sung by Mithoon,Saim,Kshitij Tarey.A song,which is close to 7 minutes(a rarity today) needs 3 to 4 hearings to completely captivate you.Look out for the high-pitched notes sung by Saim at 2 minute 45 seconds,Outstanding.The song is slow paced and certainly the Best of the Lot.The song has a Disappointing Remix version which should be used as a promotional video featuring Imraan Hashmi,its a typical Imraan-Remix track.
After Mausam(Train),Mithoon provides another sad number Phir Mohabbat in the voice of Mohd.Irfan,Arijit & Saim.Its a trademark Mithoon composition which is high on lyrics and has a sad feeling attached to it.However the song is more of an unplugged version which focused more on the vocals and the lyrics.A good track.
The last track Tujhko Bhulana;composed by Siddharth-Sangeet and sung by Sangeet Haldipur himself with Roshni Baptist is an average fast paced number.Although the song is composed by the Haldipurs,it is quite similar to Teri Tamanna from the movie Train which was composed by Mithoon.
Murder 2 provides the music lovers with some hummable tunes for which the Bhatt Camp is known for.Haal-e-Dil and Aye Khuda will acquire a longer shelf life as compare to other tracks.
