Karan Johar has made the remake of his father’s 90s superhit Agneepath starring Amitabh Bachchan in the lead. Johar has been doing his supremely best and leaving no stone unturned to make this venture with extra dose of entertainment and punch to lure the moviegoers. He wants the new Agneepath a blockbuster like the original made by his late father, Yash Johar. Starring Hrithik Roshan , Priyanka Chopra and Sanjay Dutt in the main lead, the music of the movie has been scored by Ajay and Atul Gogvale (Singham fame). Since Karan is famous for roping the trio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy or Salim-Suleiman on the composition side, he this time changes the path by brining Ajay and Atul to stockpile the tunes of the soundtrack. Amitabh Bhattacharya writes the lyrics for the songs. Karan Malhotra, the debutante, directs this flick. Let’s check out what the album has to offer.
Chikni Chameli [Shreya Ghoshal]
The song has already become the super popular among the masses. Karan Johar has specially made this item number for the film’s promotion and he has done brilliant with the marketing of this number. Katrina Kaif was roped in to shake the legs and she, being the true item number specialist, did the wonders with this track. First Karan released the first look of the song then released the teaser and finally the entire song was released. This process fetched huge attention by the people and the song’s popularity got simply multiplied after multiplied. Katrina looks super sexy and ravishing in the song. Shreya Ghoshal sings with super ease and class. She portrays her skills of singing the item songs with aplomb. The spongy voice Shreya here appears utterly different. The instruments’ arrangements appear fantastic. The composition is superlative and foot-tapping. The lyrics have been penned aptly and are true fit for an item number.
O Saiyyan [Roop Kumar Rathod]
Roop Kumar Rathod simply loots the scene with his classy and well-delivered vocals. He shows his rich experience with his magical rendition. The emotional cum romantic song is a class from tip to toe. The background chorus is spongy. Tabla and piano stand out among the other instruments. The instruments appear magical. The song hypnotizes the soul and captures the listener fully. The lyrics carry the poetic genius of the lyricist. The music is rhythmic and mesmerizing. And it simply enthralls the souls. Wonderful, you would like to give it repeated hearings.
Gun Gun Guna [Sunidhi Chauhan and Udit Narayan]
Next comes on the album list is ‘Gun Gun Guna’ sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and Udit Narayan. An active piece of music, the song carries the boisterous feel. Sunidhi sings the song with electrifying vocals and Udit renders the number with class. The composition is first rate and the lyrics hold the values.
Shah Ka Rutba [Sukhwinder Singh, Anand and Krishna Beura]
The song is like Amitabh Bachchan and Pran starrer song ‘Yaare Hai Iman Mera’ (Zanjeer). The composition reminds of the classic song. Sukhwinder, Anand and Krishna, the trio sings with perfection. The lyrics are well written. The music is foot-tapping. While listening the track, you would like to slowly dance to the beats.

The romantic song Abhi Mukh Mein Kahin is rendered by Sonu Nigam. Sonu croons the lines with super class. He injects spongy pleasures in soul. The music is less in the background and the slower pace of the number attracts the ears.
Deva Shree Ganesha [Ajay Gogavale]
The album concludes with a power packed number ‘Deva Shree Ganesha’. The background chorus is electrifying. Ajay renders the song with boisterous style. The lyrics are well written and the music is active with the aptly placed instruments.
