By now we are all well aware that Ram Gopal Verma’s movies don’t have songs just thrown in. His characters don’t break into a jig, nor are they singers. His movies have songs which are played in the background and suit the mood and setting of the scene. Obviously, such is the case for Rann, RGV’s brand new movie!

Besharam sung by Abhishek Naiwal who sings it like a war cry is a track which spits anger on the things happening around. It sounds more on the lines of Aarambh from the movie Gulaal.

Gali Gali Mein sung by a very effervescent JoJo is a funny yet very relevant track on the current state of our country. The music is ok, but gets too noisy at times.

The best track of the album comes in the form of Kaanch Ke Jaise sung by the ever dependable Sukhwinder Singh. It’s a track in which the protagonist laments rules. The lyrics are profound and metaphorical.

Kunal Ganjawala comes to rap on Mera Bharat Mahaan, which talks about all the ironical things happening in our country. It is ok in terms of lyrics, but the music sticks out like a sore thumb.

The title track Rann Hai is again a track which portrays anger through some wrong things happening around. Sanjeev Kohli sings it well, but the tone of the song is repetitive.

Remote Ko Baahar Phek is a fast-paced rap number sung by Jayesh Gandhi. It is more like a bunch of words have been thrown in without any rhyme with a few news channel headlines for good measure. It may work well in the movie, but as a stand-alone track it’s a naah!

Sikkon Ki Bhook The Vande Mataram Song starts off with some breaking news headlines from different news channels. Sung by Vardan Singh, this one too falls in the same genre as the previous tracks of this album.

Multiple music directors don’t do justice to this album, and the tracks have no appeal as a stand-alones. Most of them sound repetitive unlike Varma’s earlier movies which had some memorable soundtracks.
