The soundtrack of Blackmail is an average one with a few tuneful numbers!
The soundtrack of Irrfan Khan-Kirti Kulhari starrer Blackmail is quite exciting with composer Amit Trivedi and lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya. But, before one gets to hear four songs put together by them, there are a couple of compulsory rap/Punjabi numbers that begin the proceedings.
The album starts with Badshah’s Happy Happy. There isn't much of a recall value that this song, which has Aastha Gill pairing up with Badshah, enjoys as the core tune is not the kind that gets into your mind after the first listening itself. Overall, it is a tuneful number.
The next one is Patola, in which Guru Randhawa plays the triple role of being the composer/lyricist/singer. It was originally put together by composer Preet Hundal with Bohemia's rap adding on to the proceedings. Overall, it is engaging and tuneful number.
The next one is an item number as Bewafa Beauty featuring Urmila Matondkar. Be it the tune by Amit, lyrics by Amitabh or the dance act by Urmila, just about nothing really brings you back to the song. But, Pawni Pandey sings it in good spirit. But, that doesn't help the song much either as there isn't much about it that holds you as a listener.
There are some situational tracks such as Badla, Nindaraan Diyaan & Sataasat. Regrettably each one of these turns out to be ordinary. Badla is an energetic and forceful one with DIVINE's rap and Amit Trivedi's vocals. Nindaraan Diyaan is the kind of number that may have sounded interesting during jamming but that's it. As for Sataasat, it’s an ordinary number.
The soundtrack of Blackmail is an average one with a few tuneful numbers. Songs as Happy Happy and Patola are tuneful and enjoyable.
