Composer(s): Manas-Shikhar, Sachet - Parampara, Vickey Prasad

Vickey Prasad's Hans Mat Pagli opens Toilet... on a simple and melodious note and it helps that Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal are their rock solid selves on the singing front. Bakheda in no exception, exuding a very likeable folk vibe that gains tremendously from Sukhwinder Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan's rendition. Manas-Shikhar-composed Gori Tu Latthmaar has that Tum Tak-like bhajan flourish, but nevertheless makes for an engaging listen propped by Sonu Nigam and Palak Muchhal's vocals and the song's catchy percussion. Subha Ki Train is perhaps a little predictable in that it brings back memories of several melodies we have heard over the last few years, yet the lilting tune is beautiful, with fantastic vocal support from the composer duo Sachet Tandon and Parampara Thakur. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is crisp and a refreshing diversion from the kind of Bollywood music we have been subjected to of late.
