Composer(s): Ami Mishra, Farhan Saeed, Mithoon, Rahul Mishra, Rishi Rich, Tanishk Bagchi

Half Girlfriend features too many composers for its own good, leaving the listener with too many saccharine-coated ballads of the same kind. The result is cloying and schmaltzy, and of the ten tracks, the euphonious Baarish (composed by Tanishk Bagchi with vocals from the inimitable Ash King) and Farhan Saeed's revamped version of Thodi Der (that sarangi!) sung by Shreya Ghoshal work splendidly. The rest, alas, simply don't make the cut.
