Saif Ali Khan in Happy EndingHappy Ending delivers as promised, says Joginder Tuteja.

Saif Ali Khan's latest film Happy Ending has music by Sachin-Jigar and lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya, Priya Saraiya and Ashish Pandit.

The film starts off with a chartbuster track in G Phaad Ke, with Govinda holding centre-stage.

It’s a quintessential Govinda dance number. Divya Kumar is in his element here. Shefali Alvarez's sensual voice adds to the son'g appeal, justifying its presence right at the start of the soundtrack.

Amitabh Bhattacharya comes up with funny lyrics for Paaji Tussi Such A Pussycat. He is also the man behind the mike in this 1970s style Western composition. He is joined by Jigar Saraiya and Divya Kumar.

Jaisa Mera Tu is a romantic number rendered by Priya Saraiya. She brings in thehrav in this beautiful number where she is joined by Arijit Singh. She has also written the lyrics.

Priya returns as a singer-lyricist for Mileya Mileya, which has a breezy beginning and an easy charm. 

This time around she has hubby Jigar Saraiya and then Rekha Bhardwaj for company. 

With lyrics that go Khamma Ghani, one expects this next song to be like Rajasthani folk music. But Sachin-Jigar can take credit for giving it a contemporary setting.

Papon, Smita and Vidhi lend it freshness.

Haseena Tu Kameena Mein is a fun-n-peppy number. Siddharth Basrur, Shruti Pathak and Rahul Pandey lend it an urban and youthful flavour. It is a 'happy ending' to the album.

Happy Ending delivers as promised.
