The Salman Khan starrer ‘Kick’ is set to release on July 25th, on the day of the Eid festival. After his last film ‘Jai Ho’ failed to live up to the expectations, Salman has seemed very determined to turn this film into a very big success. The film has become important for other reasons as well. The film marks the directorial debut of producer Sajid Nadiadwala and also the biggest role in the career of leading lady Jacqueline Fernandez. After the launch of the trailer, it received tremendous response from the audience and received millions of hits on YouTube setting a new Bollywood record. After the success of the trailer, the makers have begun to release songs from the soundtrack one by one.
The film’s background music has been created by Julius Packiam. For the songs of ‘Kick’, several composers have come together. They are Himesh Reshammiya, Yo Yo Honey Singh and Meet Bros Anjjan. There are remix versions of the songs as well, remixed by DJ Angel. Singers like Shreya Ghosal, Mika Singh, Mohd. Irfan and Honey Singh have given their voice to the songs. But the biggest surprise has been Salman Khan himself who has sung in several tracks from ‘Kick’. It looks like Salman is giving his all in this film. Here are the main tracks from the film:
‘Jumme ki raat’
The first song released from the film has been sung by Mika Singh and Palak Muchhal. The song is very energetic and the lyrics are colorful. Mika’s voice has fitted the song perfectly. Salman has also sung a version of this song which though sounds a bit off key, is decent enough to listen.
The song is Salman’s first serious effort as singer in this album. While not the best song, its tune and melody is very likable. The natural playfulness of Salman’s voice has been retained on the track. The song has been composed by Meet Bros Anjjan.
‘Tu hi tu’
This is a beautiful ballad by Mohd Irfan that has a charming melody. The lyrics have been kept simple making the song quite hummable. It is one of the better film ballads in recent times.
‘Yaar na miley’
Honey Singh gets into action with this hip-hop influenced dance track. The fusion between Punjabi tune and hard beats give the song a unique flavor. Honey Singh has done his thing although his verses need to improve. The chorus is also very catchy.
‘Hangover’ (MBA swag version)
Sung by the composers Meet Bros Anjjan, it is more polished than Salman’s version. The melody is much better and the tempo is more infectious with bhangra and rap verses thrown in.
‘Tu Hi Tu’ (Salman version)
Salman should have avoided a ballad. He sounded decent on
the dance number, but here his voice cracks in parts.
