The music of the film has been composed by Amaal Mallik, Gourov-Roshin, Rishi Rich and Yash Anand, while the lyrics have been penned by Kumaar. The music album has been released under T-Series.

The Goggle Song: This one is a foot-tapping, energetic number composed by Amaal Malik who has also sung it, along with Sonu Nigam, Armaan Malik, Tulsi Kumar and Neeti Mohan. Kumar’s lyrics are a mix of Hindi and Punjabi lyrics.

Mubarakan (Title Track): It is a hard-core party song with Rishi Rich and Yash Anand composing with electronic beats. Juggy D, Yash Narvekar and Sukriti Kakar have lent their energetic vocals to the track, and there is also a rap section written and performed by Badshah. The song is a tribute to legendary singer-composer R.D. Burman as a tune from his song ‘Yamma Yamma’ from film ‘Shaan’ can be heard in between the song.

Dil Dhadke Louder Louder: It is a wedding song based on a popular traditional song. Composer duo Gourav-Roshin has beautifully mixed Punjabi folk sounds with modern beats. Puja Basnet and Rinku Giri have ably sung the song.

Haathon Mein Thhe Haath: For a change, here is a love song, a melancholic one at that which involves four singers in Papon, Altamash Faridi, Aditi Singh Sharma and Arpita Mukherjee. Kumar’s lyrics are fantastic while Gourav-Roshin’s arrangement is also good. The song begins with a Punjabi tune in the voice of Aditi, while Altamash’s quwwali-like rendition works wonders.

Hawa Hawa: The rehashed version of the classic song by Pakistani singer Hasan Jahangir by Mika Singh works and Prakriti Kakkar works wonders for the album. The song is a peppy track composed by Gourav-Roshin maintaining the original tune. Kumaar has penned the lyrics while borrowing only the opening line from the original.

Jatt Jaguar: It is an out and out Punjabi track composed by Amaal Mallik with lyrics written by Kumaar, talking of suit-boot like rap-ish song. It has been sung by Vishal Dadlani accompanied by the vocals of Navraj Hans. Apeksha Dandekar has also lent her vocals.

The soundtrack of ‘Mubarakan’ consists of Punjabi-like music, including one sad track. The songs for this comic caper are being liked.
