Kala Chashma's devotional makeover Jai Maa (Jaidev Kumar) is almost the same as its original, but the folky flourishes lend it a very groovy touch. Rishi Rich's 'refix' of Jaanu is every bit abominable as most Bollywood remixes we have been subjected to of late, while Arijit Singh suitably does the honours in JAM8's breezy melody Tera Hoke Rahoon. Yash Narvekar's Teri Yaadon Mein (and its reprise) carries a more pronounced Pritam'ish vibe (in addition to reminded me of Yuvan Shankar Raja's Kabhi Ruhani Kabhi Rumani), yet the lilting tune benefits from Yasser Desai and Pawni Pandey's soft vocals. Amjad Nadeem's Tenu Na Bol Pawaan (and its reprise) is no different, banking on a serene mix of arrangements, and Yasser, Jyotica Tangri and Asees Kaur's first-rate rendition. Melodies lift Behen Hogi Teri, but I am beginning to get concerned about this increasingly common pattern of bringing in too many composers for a single soundtrack. Is it really necessary?
