Okay! Here is my music review of Kurbaan .

Kurbaan, produced by Hiroo Yash Johar & Karan Johar and directed by Rensil D’Silva, is a forthcoming thriller based on global terrorism. It features Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Vivek Oberoi in the lead roles.

Music: Salim-Sulaiman
Lyrics: Niranjan Ayegar

The album has five original songs and one remix.

Shukran Allah is a soft romantic number with beautiful lyrics. Sonu Nigam’s vocals are outstanding and Shreya Ghoshal’s rendition is pure and gives the song the emotional feel that it needs. The highlight of the song is the Shukran Allah Walah Alham Dilulah part by Salim Merchant…simply marvellous rendition! 4/5

Next comes Dua, a fast paced track which has a bit of both – Indian as well as Western. Though it has veteran singers like Sukhwinder Singh and Kailash Kher, it disappoints..specially after you’ve heard Shukran Allah. Even Suzanne D’Cruz Aiman’s English vocals doesn’t help the already dull song. – 2/5

Ali Maula by Salim Merchant is a slow Sufi track. The highlight of the song is the urdu lyrics in the song and Salim’s outstanding rendition ofcourse. This devotional song is for the mature audience. Not everyone would like it. – 3/5

The remix version of Ali Maula is simply outstanding. Nice beats. Here, I would actually differ from Rishabh’s views. The song has NO RnB influence. Trance, it is! And I found this remix slightly better than the original – 3.5/5
Next comes Rasiya, a slow sensuous classical song sung fantastically by Shruti Pathak. With Kareena Kapoor doing a voice over, the song couldn’t have been any more sensuous. Once again, this song is meant to be for mature audience. Not everyone would like it. – 3/5

Finally, we have the title track – Kurbaan Hua by the guest composers – Vishal-Shekhar. Vishal’s husky voice is apt for this rock song. Lyrics are great but music is nothing extraordinary, it’s similar to what we’ve heard previously in other desi-rock songs. Nevertheless, a decent song! – 3/5


Overall, I am disappointed with the album, especially because my expectations were high after listening to Shukran Allah. I wonder why Karan Johar chose Salim-Sulaiman and why not Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, considering their average and excellent performances in Kaal and KANK/KHNH respectively. Why not even Vishal-Shekhar for the whole album? The duo composed some really nice songs in Dostana. Not that there are bad songs in the album apart from Dua but when it’s a KJo film, excellent songs are expected, not average songs.

The best songs in the album are Shukran Allah and Ali Maula (Remix).

My Rating for the Album – 3/5
