Kick Music Review

Music Directors: Himesh Reshammiya/ Meet Bros Anjjan/ Yo Yo Honey Singh

Lyrics: Kumaar, Shabbir Ahmad/ Mayur Puri/ Yo Yo Honey Singh, Jasmine Sandlas

1. Jumme Ki Raat

Himesh Reshammiya knows his music. His dance numbers have always been huge hits. He gives one 
more with this soundtrack- Jumme Ki Raat. Based on disco-dandiya template, this has consistently 
energetic percussions and the synthesized music is adding to the orchestration it is. This is the kind of 
song Himesh would have sung himself, but, quite thankfully, he gets Mika on board (and Salman Khan
for the other version which is more or less the same) who adds the zing to it. Female vocals (Palak
Muchhal in both the versions) makes the required fine entry. 


2. Hangover 

Hangover starts with pleasing violins but it’s only downhill after that. With pedestrian lyrics like 
“Hangover teri yaadon ka” being passed off as a romantic one, do you think this song can stoop lower 
anymore? The violins reappear at places in the arrangement with techno bits and processed vox which 
makes the track even mediocre. Salman Khan, with spectacular use of computer software, fits into this 
song for vocals. Though the song makes good progressions but a 6 minute length is tiring. The length 
is shortened to 3 minutes in its remix version- titled as “MBA SWAG” (Seriously?)- but is even more 


3. Tu Hi Tu

 Reshammiya keeps it minimal in the only soft number of the album (perhaps the romantic filler song for 
the film), Tu Hi Tu letting the singer Mohd. Irfan take the center stage. For the melodious arrangement 
it has, its terrible production is a letdown. For the other version, Salman Khan goes behind the 
microphone again only to please his fans even more with his modulated vocals and almost spoiling the 


4. Yaar Naa Miley

 Punjabi pop singer Jasmine Sandlas confidently starts Yaar Naa Miley- which is essentially the title 
track of the album (“Tere bina Kick mujhe milti nahin”)- with her rustic voice which goes so amazingly 
well with this disco number that it is she who owned a “Yo Yo Honey Singh” song. Yo Yo Singh goes 
melancholic in this one rather than rapping, but that wouldn’t stop anyone to play this one at dance 
floors. (No Salman Khan version of this song, yay!)

Almost every song of this album (3 out of 4) has two versions: the original and the Salman Khan version. 
Though we don’t expect any musical from a quintessential Bhai film, Kick is just the kind of soundtrack 
his films need- not for serious music listeners, obviously.


Rating: 2.5/5
