    To begin with, one isn't really sure what to expect from the music of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. In fact the very fact that there are as many as eight songs in the album surprises you since in a theme based film with sports as a central element, one expected three to four songs at maximum. However as the soundtrack flows, one realises that Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy along with Prasoon Joshi have come together with the kind of music that would give a solid push to the narrative of this Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra film.

    The album kick-starts on a sober note with a 100 second long Gurbani which has Daler Mehndi singing in a manner that only he can. The sound of violin in the background gives this rather quiet pace a very soothing feel and one actually wishes that there was much more in the offering than eventually what plays in the audio.

    The album changes gears immediately after with Siddharth Mahadevan, who is Shankar Mahadevan's son, taking centre-stage for an all-important number Zinda. A terrific song by all means which had made a quick impression when just a couple of lines were heard months back as a part of the film's teaser, it maintains a good momentum right through it's three and a half minute duration. Siddharth is further aided by the fact that Prasoon Joshi's lyrics are as meaningful as they get. Moreover, with the composer trio bringing on the kind of arrangements that they excel in, the end result is extremely effective and meaningful.

    Javed Bashir is the singer who is roped in for Mera Yaar, a Sufi affair. A situational number that should go well with the film's theme, it yet again works due to the fact that it isn't corrupted by any commercial ingredients that would have possibly diluted the end result. Final outcome is a well sung number that one looks forward to seeing as the film's narrative unfolds.
