Himesh apes himself getting a new high in nasal singing, using phrase of his own song, mad mad Lonely is weirdly addictive. Balma works, just because of Shreya in otherwise tacky arrangements with so called tribute to RDB. Mika's next Long Drive is that typical punjabi hip-hop thing nothing to brag about. Starting quite similarly as his songs of Radio, Saari Saari Raat is an interesting tune. If you don't mind Himesh singing (I don't, here) this one is surprisingly good. If Lonely was mad, next one has insane lyrics - Hookah Bar sets new standard in silly wordings with annoying techno beats. Title track Khiladi Bhaiyya is filled with those standard HR loops all over, suited for the OTT colored movie. Tu Hoor Pari has minimal arrangements for a perfect punjabi folk flavored track. Quite an engaging one.
Looking at the trailer of the film, you can't really blame HR for an average album. But still, the guy seems lazy at qualitative arrangements and hence churning out his typecasted work, with occasional sparks. Khiladi 786 is a mixed bag that obviously serves its intended purpose for the OTT entertainer.
My Picks : Saari Saari Raat, Tu Hoor Pari
