Phurrr

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.
  • Dil To Bachcha Hai

    Rahat Ali Khan does his usual magic.

  • Ibn-E-Batuta

    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). The raw, verbally percussive impact of "phurr" and "dhan-tanaan" helps to recall Amit Trivedi's brilliance in Chakkar Ghumyo and Phas Gaya (both from Aamir).

  • Ab Mujhe Koi

  • Badi Dheere Jali

    Both rendered exquisitely as only Rekha Bhardwaj can, with semi-classical underpinnings. And yet, they have enough populism built in to grow on you increasingly with each listen.
