Cheat India’s soundtrack is being unveiled little by little by its makers, and the newest song from this album is called Kaamyaab. This track is quite different from all the other ones released so far, which is pretty obvious since various composers have worked on the music of this film. Kaamyaabhas been composed by the band Agnee, while its lyrics have been penned by Juhi Saklani.
Before seeing the film it’s quite difficult to find out what the song is about, but we can surely guess from the limited information we have. The song begins with the words, “Tu kitna kaamyaab. Tu chadhta aastabh. Tu note gin janaab. Mera khoon tera khwab.” These lines seem to imply that all the hard work is being done by the student, while someone else is reaping the benefits of it, in the form of money. Emraan Hashmi’s character in the film is that of a tout who offers admissions in return of money. It can hence be inferred that the song is about a student speaking out against Emraan’s character. The later lyrics go, “Saale meri neendon ka, ab tu hi de hisaab.”
The composition of this song is a very pleasant one. It definitely has an Agnee signature to it, which makes you want to listen to it again and again. Lead singer of the band, Mohan Kannan has given a restrained and fitting vocal performance in Kaamyaab.
This is only the fourth song from the soundtrack of Cheat India. The first one was a party track sung by Guru Randhawa, titled Daaru Wargi. The second is a generic Emraan Hashmi emotional number named Dil Mein Ho Tum, while the third song from the album is a ghazal-like composition named Phir Mulaaqat, which is definitely a highlight from the soundtrack.
Cheat India is a Soumik Sen directorial, which has been produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar, among others. It stars Emraan Hashmi and Shreya Dhanwanthary in lead roles. The film revolves around the malpractices prevalent in the education sector of India.
Cheat India will be seen hitting theatres across India on January 18.
