Student of the Year has a pretty good soundtrack by Vishal-Shekhar. The songs are fresh,youthful, and very bhangra-eque (which I love!)
My favorites are:
“Ishq wala love” a slow romantic number sung by Shekhar Ravijani, Salim Merchant and Neeti Mohan. The song is simple with tabla beats along with the mellow sound of the guitar which keep the listener hooked to the track.
“Disco deewane”, which was sung by late Pakistani singer Nazia Hassan. It is used in the film in a modern avatar and titled “The disco song”. Portions originally sung by Nazia Hassan have been blended really well with a fresh composition sung by Benny Dayal and Sunidhi Chauhan. It’s a fun song!
“Kukkad”, a funny number that mixes bhangra with electronic beats. The track is edgy and grappling and sets the mood right to shake a leg with Shahid Mallya behind the mike. An awesome and funny bhangra track especially for desi festivities!
“Vele” has Vishal-Shekhar coming together as singers. Musically speaking, the track combines hip-hop, rap, bhangra, and electronic sounds with elements of dubstep creating an addictive mix for music lovers.
Z4B take: Awesome, youthful, shake your leg, get your bhangra on soundtrack! 4 out of 5
