Music: Pritam / Lyrics: Irshad Kamil
We would like to start with applause for two separate mesmerizing takes by Shahid Mallya and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan on Rabba main to mar gaya oy. The prolific and plagiarism-tagged Pritam last composed something as soft and original in the 2007 films Jab We Met (Tum se hi, tum se hi) and Life in a Metro (In dino dil mera). The flavour is largely Punjabi, except for a sole whirling Karsan Sagathia Gujarat-garba composition Aag lage us aag ko. A glowing addition to the album.
While Ram Sampath’s Delhi Belly stood out for variety, daredevilry and cheeky stuff, Pritam’s Mausam is a good foil to end up as one of the best soundtracks in the calendar year.
