Music Review: It’s a Game

After their previous release, Patiala House, I had high expectations from this album too. Most of the songs are just average and fail to impress. The album is a disappointment.

Album: It’s a Game (2011)
Music Composer: Shankar, Ehsaan, Loy
Singers: Vishal Dadlani, Sunitha Sarathy, Shaan, Anusha Mani, Loy Mendonsa, Shreya Goshal, Kshitij Wagh, Aditi Singh Sharma, K.K
Lyricist: Javed Akhtar

It’s a Game
Singer: Vishal Dadlani. Reprise version by Sunitha Sarathy

The title song captures the attitude and the essence of the movie. It sets the mood for the killer attitude and Vishal sings in the right mood and packs in the right attitude. Sunitha Sarathy tries her hand in the reprise version, but her singing lacks the attitude and the sensuality required.

 

Maine Yeh Kab Socha Tha
Singer: Shaan, Anusha Mani, Loy Mendonsa

A soft, romantic number which is the highlight of the album. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy show their charm in this mellifluous song. The opening piece and the in-between piano piece are soothing to the ears. While this is the best song in the album, it still won’t stay with you for long. On the whole, the song sounds disconnected – as if different parts were patched up to make up the song.

 

Mehki Mehki
Singer: Shreya Goshal, Kshitij Wagh

A sensuous dance number which has a touch of cabaret to it. Sung beautifully by Shreya Goshal and ably supported by Kshitij Wagh, the song does catch your attention, but again falls into the average scale. Nothing special in the lyrics department either.

 

Kaun Hai Ajnabi
Singers: Aditi Singh Sharma, K.K

A situational song which brings out the mystery element of the movie. Sung by Aditi and K.K and the words are the same cliched and overused. The song is nothing great and is easy to miss.
