Hate Story 2 is an upcoming revenge thriller, directed by Vishal Pandya, and produced by Vikram Bhatt. It stars two famous TV anchors in their Bollywood debut, Jay Bhanushali (Best known for being the anchor of ‘Dance India Dance’) and Surveen Chawla (Best known for being the anchor of ‘Comedy Circus Ke Superstars’). The film is the sequel of ‘Hate Story’ which released in 2012. The music of ‘Hate Story’ was a hit, even though it was only three songs, and so there were high expectations from ‘Hate Story 2’ music. The music has been composed by Arko Pravo Mukherjee, Rashid Khan, Meet Bros. Anjjan and Mithoon. Each of them have one song each, and of course, each of the songs have remixes, a specialty of T-Series. So let’s see how each of them score in their one song!


1. Aaj Phir:- Singers ~ Arijit Singh & Samira Koppikar, Mukhda Originally Composed by ~ Laxmikant-Pyarelal, Music Recreated by ~ Arko Pravo Mukherjee, Lyrics of Mukhda Originally Written by ~ Aziz Qaisi, New Lyrics by ~ Arko Pravo Mukherjee

This song is a remake of the old song ‘Aaj Phir Tum Pe’ from ‘Dayavan’. Laxmikant-Pyarelal had composed it and I had never heard of it nor heard it before this. I checked it out on Saavn and found out that the old one wasn’t half as interesting in terms of arrangements and music as the remake! Arko has remade the song very efficiently and has given quite interesting arrangements to the song. Mostly, it is techno elements. The tabla makes a very short entry at places, making the song even more interesting. The saxophone interlude is also a must-listen! The choice of Arijit for this song was obvious, because, come on, no one can deny that after ‘Aashiqui 2’, no T-Series film is complete without an Arijit song! Anyways, he has sung in his deep voice this time, and has sung fabulously, considering that the song is in a very low scale. He has brought life into a practically dead-sounding song (The old version). His partner, Samira Koppikar, however, seems to be an amateur. Well, it is her first song, after all. But she doesn’t at all sound like someone who should be allowed to sing in a T-Series film, but she sounds like someone who should sing in a C-Grade film with newcomer music directors. Instead of her, Shalmali Kholgade would have been a great choice. Arko has written the new lyrics well, too, retaining the romantic nature of the song. A song which is currently topping the charts, and it deserves it! A must-listen and a #5StarHotelSong!

 

2. Kabhi Aayine Pe Likha Tujhe:- Singer ~ K.K., Music by ~ Rashid Khan, Lyrics by ~ Tanveer Ghazi

After ‘Soniye’ (Heartless) and ‘Dil Aaj Kal’ (Purani Jeans), K.K.’s third (yeah, I know, only third! 😦 ) romantic song of the year finally arrives in the form of an outdated tune composed by Rashid Khan. K.K.’s voice is refreshing as always. Rashid Khan has composed an old fashioned tune as always. However, when it is K.K., I don’t think that matters. Even though the tune is old-fashioned, it still makes for a very pleasant listen. The song is typical in every way, yet sounds refreshing because of the vocals. The arrangements are also very good. The song starts with mild piano notes, followed by Rashid Khan’s favourite, flute. The guitar riffs in the antaras are just awesome! The lyrics are good, however, one word ‘diary’ in the mukhda just doesn’t fit in well with the rest of the words. It seems weird. The ‘Aye Khuda‘ portion is too heard-before and doesn’t help the song much. The English female chorus also doesn’t impress at all. Though it is a pleasant listen overall, it might get boring after multiple listens. Unless you just want to hear K.K! A K.K. show all the way! Flat tune, but soothing vocals.

 

3. Pink Lips:- Singers ~ Khushboo Grewal, Meet Bros. Anjjan, Music by ~ Meet Bros. Anjjan, Lyrics by ~ Kumaar

Just because ‘Baby Doll’ (Ragini MMS 2) became a huge chartbuster hit, now T-Series has made Meet Bros. Anjjan compose another song like that for this film too. A newcomer Khushboo Grewal has been roped in to sing this song and maybe the trio of Meet Bros. & Anjjan were hoping that it will get immediate hit status like ‘Baby Doll’ if they make a new singer sing it, like what happened to Kanika Kapoor. But sadly, Khushboo doesn’t impress that much with her vocals, nor is the song anywhere close to the former. On top of that, it sounds like she is saying ‘Pin Clips’ instead of ‘Pink Lips’. 😂 The composition is just average, but the arrangements however are awesome. They give a disco-esque feel to the song which sounds good. Anyways, I really hope the song doesn’t gain as much popularity as ‘Baby Doll’ as it is nothing impressive, but who knows what the public might like? It will just prove again how bad the Indian public is in choosing undeserving songs to become superhits and neglecting the deserving ones. :/ Not impressive! Not expected!

 

4. Hai Dil Ye Mera:- Singer ~ Arijit Singh, Music by ~ Mithoon, Lyrics by ~ Mithoon

Mithoon just loves to make Arijit and Mohammed Irfan sings his compositions! This time Arijit is the lucky one. The song has Mithoon’s mark all over it. Mithoon has composed a haunting melody, which acts as slow poison. It will gradually trick you into getting addicted to it. It bears slight resemblances to ‘Tum Hi Ho’ (Aashiqui 2) and ‘Banjaara’ (Ek Villain), but still rules over your mind while you are listening to it. I just don’t get how Mithoon manages to recycle his songs and still make them work so awesomely! It’s as if his songs themselves have a brain and know what we are thinking about the song being a recycled version of a previous Mithoon song, and then they hypnotize us in thinking that it is a brand new sound, and every time it works! The vocals are also too good. Arijit has rendered it flawlessly! The first time I heard it, I thought I would never hear it again. The fifth time, I suddenly found myself pressing the repeat button on my device! The arrangements and lyrics are fabulous! Again, Mithoon uses simple language and leaves a deep impact. 🙂 A Mithoon trademark song which will not instantly appeal to you, but will surely be on top of your playlist in the coming days! #5StarHotelSong!


Hate Story 2 is a mixed album. It has two great tracks, one underperforming track, and one disappointing track. Both the great songs have Arijit Singh singing them, so it is no surprise why they are the best. The song by Rashid Khan has nothing to offer except the greatness of K.K.’s voice, which can never get boring as such. Meet Bros. Anjjan have strictly disappointed, giving a song which was never expected from them at all, in the negative sense. The prequel had just three songs, all of them being marvellous tunes by Harshit Saxena, who is absent from the Bollywood scene nowadays. In comparison to the prequel, though, this album is a bit underperforming. Mithoon and Arko have performed beautifully, and that’s about it! Though the multi-composer formula worked well in ‘Yaariyan’, here it makes the album fall apart and proves that ‘Too Many Cooks Spoil The Broth’! However, in this case, they don’t generate heat to get the soup cooking, but they generate hate! 😂 Thus, the appetizer and the dessert are delicious, by chefs Arko and Mithoon, while the main course does not tingle the taste buds whatsoever. 😉

 

Final Rating for This Album:- सा < रे < ग <  < प < ध < नी

Note:- The letter which is underlined is the final rating.
