The soundtrack has songs from four different composers, with lyrics by Manoj Muntashir.
Akshay Kumar's upcoming thriller, Rustom, has four composers belting it soundtrack. Raghav Sachar, Ankit Tiwari, Arko and Jeet Gannguli are the composers who have created some pretty melodious numbers, that's so not in sync with the the grim and tight trailer that we witnessed a week ago.
Check out our music review here...
Tere Sang Yaara
Is it me or has it been a long time that we have heard Atif Aslam in a really good song? Tere Sang Yaara is the quintessential Atif Aslam song, that feels so good and will be lapped up by everyone who loves soft romantic numbers. Arko composes this winner of a song. The reprise version is also good.
Rustom Vahi sound like those situational songs we hear in the '80s films whenever any thrilling sequence is being played. There are multiple versions of the song, composed by Raghav Sachar. - a female version by Sukriti Kakkar which is the best of the lot, a theme version, a male and a Marathi version, both sung by Jasraj Joshi.
If you know just by listening to the first few strains of the song that it is sung and composed by Ankit Tiwari, sire, it means you are becoming a bit predictable. Tay Hai is definitely very mellow and good to listen to. But as a composer, Ankit doesn't deliver anything new here.
Dekha Hazaaron Dafaa
For me, this is the best song of the album. It has the slight touch of the period in which the film is set. Jeet Gannguli doesn't go overboard with the orchestration as he let the singers take the foreground. Arijit Singh and Palak Muchhal are simply beautiful in their singing. A clear favourite for sure.
Dhal Jaun Main
Jeet Gannguli composes this one as well, a song filled with enough pathos to make the necessary impact. Jubin Nautiyal and Akanksha Sharma do a great job in bringing the right amount of feeling to this song. Good to hear, but lacks the longevity.
Jab Tum Hote Ho
Ankit Tiwari return to the album with this neatly-composed ditty, that is actually different from his usual staple of songs, and it works well. The biggest strength of the song is that he lets Shreya Ghoshal handle the singing part and she easily trumps! It's not that Ankit Tiwari is a bad singer, but he needs to give himself a break!
One thing I really appreciate about the soundtrack for Rustom is that, even with different composers, the album has maintained a consistent tone to the songs. Save for a Rustom Vahi, the rest of the song are pretty mellifluous and easy on your ears.
Tera Sang Yaara, Dekha Hazaaron Dafaa, Jab Tum Hote Ho
