All Is Well – Music Review (Bollywood Soundtrack)

Ever wondered how Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak soundtrack might have sounded, had it been made by present day Bhatts? Mithoon provides a sampler in All Is Well, giving a Tum Hi Ho style makeover to Anand Milind’s Ae Mere Humsafar. Which turns out to be not a bad thing, the sound does suit the original tune quite well. It is the singing that lets the song down – the composer himself and Tulsi Kumar. Amaal Mallik’s Chaar Shanivar seems to borrow from the Yo Yo Honey Singh brand of music, Badshah does the rapping here while Vishal Dadlani leads the vocals. Engaging track, but very heard-before in its South Indian style percussion dominated format. Meet Bros Anjjan manage to produce the most entertaining dance track of the soundtrack with their muse Kanika Kapoor. Nachan Farrate too thrives on heard-before (Punjabi in this case) elements, but the song passes muster nevertheless.

The soundtrack’s lead composer Himesh Reshammiya composes the remaining three tracks. And he too starts on a Bhatt-inspired format in Baaton Ko Teri. Nothing fresh in offer, but the song works; partly owing to the hauntingness and partly to Arijit Singh’s soulfulness. Tu Mila De is pacier albeit with similar melancholic tone, featuring Ankit Tiwari on vocals. The track gets most interesting in the second interlude, otherwise seems rather monotonous and wears off rather soon. Yolo’s title is a good indicator as to what to expect from the song. The song does have Sreerama Chandra doing some fine singing, but nothing much of interest happens otherwise.

All Is Well. The movie’s title doesn’t hold particularly true for the soundtrack.

Music Aloud Rating: 6/10

Top Recos: Baaton Ko Teri, Nachan Farrate
