The soundtrack for Ishqiya is another wonderful result of the longstanding partnership between Sampooran Singh Kalra (aka Gulzar) and Vishal Bhardwaj. They have previously partnered to produce hit soundtracks such as Maachis and Omkara.

Perhaps the most memorable of the film's songs, delivered inimitably by Sukhwinder Singh and Mika. The "phurrr" here is reminiscent of "dhan-tanaan-tanan-tanan" in Kaminey (also by Vishal Bhardwaj).
