Mr.X Music Review

RATING: ★ ★ ★ 
Vishesh Films and Emraan Hashmi; add to that the two "Most Wanted" artists of the music industry at present Ankit Tiwari and Arijit Singh..One expects some melodious high quality numbers from the soundtrack of Mr.X which boasts of 5 original and 1 reprise versions. 

"Tu Jo Hai" (composed and sung by Ankit Tiwari) sits comfortably somewhere between Ankit's very own 'Dil Darbadar' (P.K) and 'Tu Hai Ki Nai' (Roy). As usual it starts of an unplugged note with Ankit's auto tuned vocals, wonder why such a powerful voice with such a great scale (consider the alaaps portions of 'Sun Raha Hai Na Tu') needs to be auto tuned! Both the interludes have some nice guitar riffs and surprisingly the sad-romantic lyrics by Mohnish Raza comes as the high point of this number which otherwise offers nothing much new on the musical front. Neverthless it’s going to be a HIT and is here to Top the Charts for some weeks to come.

Jeet Ganguly comes up with the title song "Mr.X", a situational theme number that defines the character of Emraan Hashmi and has a certain anxious zing attached to it where Mili Nair is splendid with her high pitched renditions and hang on...we also have Mr.Mahesh Bhatt making his singing debut for the hook line which irritates at first few hears but settles down eventually. Lyrics by Rashmi Singh are pretty average, overall a functional number that should work well alongside the narration. 

Ankit Tiwari returns back with "Saad Shukrana" another melodious number that starts off in his typical template style from where he left the first song 'Tu Jo Hai' but it suddenly shifts gear after one minute as one hear slow rock strums in the first interlude which leads up to two beautiful paragraphs written by Manoj Shukla that makes this one a clear winner although the overall feel of this one still lands in the same comfort zone of the musician.

"Alif Se"; a fast pulsating techno number composed by Ankit Tiwari and written by Abhendra Kumar Upadhyay, this may surprise many listeners who associates only romantic/sad numbers with the composers name, mostly those who haven’t heard 'Tequila Wakila' from Samraat & Co. The interludes here, especially from 1:12 to 1: 30, somehow does a 'Kamli' (Dhoom 3) and are quite similar with the arrangements used in that song, coming to the vocals, one can again hear the auto tuned effect being used for both Neeti Mohan and Ankit Tiwari but somehow it does justice to the song and synchronises well due to its techno feel, its time the guy stops auto tuning his lazy styled vocals in romantic numbers that limits the creativity of his voice. Overall, the composition sounds fresh and breaks the shackles for Ankit Tiwari, though the fate of the song now depends upon how it’s being picturised and used in the movie.

The best of the lot "Teri Khushboo" by Jeet Ganguly ends the soundtrack on an eccentric note. One gets a déjà at the very onset (prelude) with the Guitar and Piano arrangements being fairly similar to 'Tu Hi Haqeeqat' (Tum Mile) until Arijit Singh joins in and transports the listeners into an aura of his own beautifully woven around some agonising lyrics that makes one feel the pain. Jeet Ganguly uses minimum arrangements and the focus is mostly on the lyrics and the renditions. This one is a pre-climax material and defines a crucial emotional moment in the movie. Like all other previous compositions of Jeet Ganguly and Arijit Singh, this one is here to rule the charts but will take some time to grow...Gorgeous!

Palak Muchhal replaces Arijit for "Teri Khushboo-Female" where her voice strikes a chord instantly and her voice as usual reminds me of Shreya Ghoshal and is really hard to differentiate the vocals of these two hugely talented artists. The song here is almost the same as the previous one, although a bit change in the lyrics would have provided variety and freshness, still it makes up for a good version that emerges as a winner.

"Mr.X" is a usual Bhatt Camp soundtrack with some melodious numbers, an energetic track and then a sad heart wrenching number and probably that is what one expects from the soundtrack of Vishesh Films. 'Tu Jo Hai' despite being criticised is hard to keep away and will become popular neverthless where 'Teri Khushboo' is undoubtedly 'THE SONG' of the soundtrack and will grow with time.
