Composer(s): Badshah, Sneha Khanwalkar

Badshah's Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai is like that Saturday Saturday (Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania) kind of song - banal, uninspiring and nothing more. The soundtrack then passes hands to Gangs of Wasseypur fame Sneha Khanwalkar, who, true to her roots, whips up the folksy Engine Ki Seeti in all its wacky glory with Sunidhi Chauhan and Resmi Sateesh ably supporting on the vocals. Maa Ka Phone isn't far behind either, but is still a funky listen thanks to its groovy techno orchestration and Priya Panchal and Mauli Dave's peppy rendition. The much-needed musical diversion comes in the form of the haunting melody Preet and Jasleen Kaur Royal wispy vocals makes it all the more beautiful. Sneha Khanwalkar's unconventional streak continues with Khoobsurat.
