While Kaavaan Kaavaan  and Meer-E-Kaarwan were the first ones to release from the album, below is the review of the remaining tracks. 

Teen Kabootar - Raftaar, Mohit Chauhan and Divya Kumar

Crooned by Mohit Chauhan, Divya Kumar adding on few rap verses by Raftaar with the composition of Arjunna Harjaie 'Teen Kabootar' is a standout song which has no other musical instrument other than an acoustic guitar. However, the remaining instruments are body percussions and sound created from day to day prison equipments like brooms, bins, pots, and pans etc are used to create the beats. The song switches on a mischievous mood as Farhan Akhtar seems to sing out the song bravely along with its prison mates right in front of the jailer (Ronit Roy) in the music video.

Rangdaari- Arijit Singh

'Rangdaari' is a romantic soundtrack performed by Arijit Singh which is a huge add on in the film. By far the most loved song of this musical drama film, Rangdaari's music video showcases how Kishan who is a prisoner joins the path of Gayatri Kashyap who is associated with an NGO in organizing the music event for the prisoners. The moments of their on-screen chemistry is highlighted in this soulful song. In the movement of performing with a music band and leading it to success, Farhan and Diana Penty's characters seem to fall in love. The music of this song is composed by Arjunna Harjaie and the beautiful lyrics are written by Kumaar.

Baki Rab Pe Chhod De - Tanishk Bagchi, Brijesh Shandilya 

The last song of the film 'Baaki Rab Pe Chhod De' is a lively fast tempo dance song that can move your feet with positivity. Sung by Brijesh Shandilya and composed by Tanishk Bagchi, the song has crazy beats with motivational lyrics that will delight your day.
