Lyrics - Javed Akhtar.
1. Zaraa Dil Ko Thaam Lo - Zaraa Dil Ko Thaam Lo basically creates the mood of Don 2 and remind us of early 80s. This song also remind us of Aaj Ki Raat from Don and infact sounds similar. Moreover this track, remind us of return of Don. Seems extremely situational and carries the film forward. Must Listen.
2. Aa Raha Hoon Palat Ke - Basically it is a dialogue voiced by Shahrukh Khan and telling his detractor that he is back and back big time.
3. Hai Ye Maya - This song is sung by evegreen Usha Uthup and in style. Haunting and action packed directly from masala flicks of 70's and 80's. Nice innovation and will catch your attention definitely. Looks extremely situational and will be played in background many a times. Must Listen.
4. Dushman Mera - Sounds similar to Zaraa Dil Ko Thaam Lo at first hearing. Shankar Mahadevan sounds different from his usual self. Ok number. Another situational and hopefully picks up after watching the video.
5. The King Is Back (Theme) - It is the theme track and carries the legacy of Don theme that is popular for decades. Singer Sunitha Sarathay has done proper justice to the song and easily this track has repeat value for die hard Don fans.
6. Mujhko Pehchaanlo - Shaan sang the version of 'Main Hoon Don' from Don - The Chase Begins Again and it is presented again in Don 2 as 'Mujhko Pehchaanlo'. This time it is sang by K.K. and it is rocking again.
7. The 'Don' Waltz - Instrumental.
Positive - Zaraa Dil Ko Thaam Lo, Hai Yeh Maya.
Negative - No Chartbuster, except Zaraa Dil Ko Thaam Lo.
Rating - 3.5/5.
