Rating: ****

Director duo Abbas-Mustan bring back not only the thrill and glamour from "Race" but also composer Pritam Chakraborty's magic for the movie's sequel. The music of "Race 2" matches the exotic thrill ride that the actioner is expected to be.

With a constellation of some of the brightest stars in the Indian music industry, the album opens with a mellow "Be intehaan", sung by Atif Aslam and Sunidhi Chauhan. Mayur Puri has penned the song along the same tangent, and his words flow soulfully as the music grows on the listener.


It is a beautiful song, which is romantic to the core and is ready to be hummed by all those in love. It also has a remixed version, which is a proper house track but seems a tad weak compared to the original.

The album takes a slow but upbeat turn towards its next dance-on-the-couch track "Lat lag gayee", crooned by Benny Dayal and Shalmali Kholgade. The lyrics are catchy and make you put it on loop. The melody is really addictive and can bring the listener from the couch to the dance floor easily.


The next song in the album is the best - "Party on my mind". The listener gets down to jumping from the minute the track starts to play. Shefali Alvares brings in this song with some mean techno beats, when KK kicks in with all the pomp and zest that is fit for a movie boasting of high-octane action.

Yo Yo Honey Singh breaks in with his short but catchy bit in the track. A hit already, this track is sure to stay on your mind. Its remixed version challenges a lot of songs to be Bollywood's next big party anthem.


Last but not the least is "Allah duhai hai", which has singers like Atif Aslam, Vishal Dadlani and Anushka Manchanda creating a dramatic effect. The song has rap by girls, some in-your-face melody, and beats with edge-of-the-seat excitement - reminding the listener that this is what "Race 2" will be all about.

In a nutshell, the album is bound to be a hit. Let's just hope the movie is as good as the soundtrack is!
