Don 2 Music Review (BD)

BD Music Review : Don 2 Chase Continues
Don 2: Another duh in waiting?
Don 2
Music Directors: Shankar - Ehsaan - Loy
Lyrics: Javed Akhtar
BD Music Rating: ❤ ❤ 

Ra.One was a musical treat. And the previous installment of “Don” was hip musically. But Shankar – Ehsaan – Loy has consistently failed in recent times (exception: ZNMD) and this one could be their comeback album. So expectations are obviously high, let’s see if we have another musical blast here after Rockstar. Excel Entertainment has always served good music (take it the previous: Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara).

Aa Raha Hoon Palat Ke
Singer: Shah Rukh Khan

The soundtrack commences with dialogue that I have already heard as ringtone of many phones. Yes, the dialogue that made people whistle and screech in Don 2 trailer and it seems that the album will take it to the next level. A very promising start, I must say.  

Zara Dil Ko Tham Lo
Singers: Anusha Mani, Vishal Dadlani

The song starts off well with Anusha Mani crooning some good notes, but alas! As soon as Vishal Dadlani comes into the scene, the song starts sounding ordinary. I have heard him singing so many good songs in this genre, but this is epic fail. The typical Shankar-Ehsaan –Loy song with the typical Javed Akhtar lyrics is a big letdown. Sorry but that’s the truth.

Hai Yeh Maya
Singer: Usha Uthup

Okay after the disastrous opening, the album seems to be coming on track. Saxophones around 0:10 are pleasant surprise, but wait! This is again the same sounding composition. The trio has wasted Usha Uthup’s voice here. She is in fact the apt choice for this genre, but again, poor composition and lyrics are to blame, the song never connects to the listener.

Dushman Mera
Singers: Shankar Mahadevan, Sunitha Sarathy

Oh! I am fed up now, seriously. This is not at all happening. Shankar – Ehsaan – Loy seriously need to rediscover them. Lyrics, composition and music, everything is just not up to scratch!

The King Is Back
Singer: Sunitha Sarthy

Okay, this track is nice. Beats are catchy (not innovative), music production is slick, guitars are rocking and overall, the song emerges out to be the front-runner of the album after previous distress.

Mujhko Pehchan Lo

The reprised version of Don’s Title Track lacks the tempo and energy of the previous version. KK does a good job but I still can’t get Shaan out of my mind. This song is good not because it is better than the previous version but because the initial songs were complete mess and the album seems to be recovering. But I hardly see any change in music section. It seems that all the songs of Don 2 are composed at one go with same beats and are trimmed later. This album is nowhere close to the previous one.

The Don Waltz
Instrumental (Thankfully!)

Thank god! The Don Waltz is blissfully relaxing. The soft melody gives the much-needed massage to head as well as ears that just got malfunctioned after listening to the trans-world music genre that sounded second – rate. This piece does some damage control and I expect something better from the Trio next time.

One Line Music Review: Don 2 Music is epic fail! Don't buy!

Rating: ❤ ❤


  1. I leave you all with something real gangsta guys!

    Listen up this!

    Maula Allah Kay Bande

  2. Nt yet heard d d sngs of SEL are unique in ter own takes tym to grow on u

  3. Completely diagree this time Himanshu..its not a failure by any means! Hai Yeh Maaya is outstanding.

  4. Thanks for comment.

    All songs from same genre made me go very furious..if I have to pick up my bets:

    The Don Waltz, The King is back, Hai Yeh Maaya..

    but none of these songs can match to the expectations from SEL's "Don"....

  5. I agree! Don 2 soundtrack was below average for me as well..
