8 Songs, 25 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Fukrey Returns switches up the formula for the franchise's second outing, using multiple composers including Prem-Hardeep, Shree D and Sharib-Toshi, to breathe new life into a breadth of styles. The title track—complete with trap high-hats and throwback video game blips—has a catchy sing-along chorus that just won’t quit. Elsewhere, the Punjabi-inspired “Tu Mera Bhai Nahi Hai” adds sweetness in a song about friendship, and Sharib and Toshi Sabri lend Sufi flavour to the ballad "Ishq De Fanniyar". The trend of remixing classic Bollywood songs gets a look in, too—“Mehbooba” reimagines the Mohammed Rafi classic “O Meri Mehbooba” with hip-hop beats and an urban edge.
