The title track Daawat-e-ishq is sung by Javed Ali and Sunudhi Chauhan, is a qawwali with a blend of a wedding song. Javed Ali’s voice is perfect and Sunidhi compliments him very well. The lyrics and the composition make this song feel like a conversation between a guy and a girl. The song has the potential to catch your attention but will not be a popular track.
Coming up next is Mannat that is sung by Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal and Keerthi Sagathia and has two versions. Both the versions have their own separate appeal. One expected it to have a wow factor considering the fact that Sonu Nigam was at it but again this one too falls shot of expectations.
Next is Rangreli and this one is song by Wajid and Shreya Ghoshal which turns into a desi wedding number and is a conversation between two individuals. Well why get into a song when we can do it very effictively with dialogues.
Shayarana is rendered by Shalmali Kholgade and the only song that one can here in the entire album. The vocals are superb and will stick to your playlist for long. The soft tune touches your senses and the lyrics play with your mind.
The last one is Jaadu Tone Waliyaan and it disappointments as it seems jaded and flat. Sajid-Wajid’s composition have the rustic feel to it, but not very much of the countryside feel.
Over all, the album is very average. Some songs stick on with you but rest are forgettable and will be out of your playlist in no time.
Daawat-e-Ishq starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Parineeti Chopra promises to be a romantic comedy with a backdrop of food. Directed by Habib Faisal and produced by Aditya Chopra the film has high expectations from it as it releases alongside Priyanka Chopra’s Mary Kom.
Here’s wishing team Daawat-e-Ishq all the best.
