Luv Ranjan's debut film 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama' had some really good songs courtesy Clinton Cerejo and Hitesh Sonik. 'Aakash Vani' and ''Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2', too, had some good songs to boast of. 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety' is a comedy and just like Luv's earlier films has a youthful vibe to it. Now, with the director joining hands with T-Series to make a film, one definitely expects some good music in the offering.

Yo Yo Honey Singh recreates two songs originally composed by Anand Raaj Anand. While he retains the original flavour of the track from Hans Raj Hans's album in "Dil Chori", he only uses the hookline of "Tote Tote Ho Gaya" ('Bichoo') in "Chhote Chhote Peg". In fact, it is quite interesting the way the new track has been rechristened. Both the songs are high on energy and are sufficiently catchy to get you grooving while listening to them. Honey Singh writes some catchy rap portions for the latter and tops it up with the extremely catchy hookline of the original number.

Amaal Mallik sets "Subah Subah" comfortably around what has come to be his signature sound - an EDM based track with a romantic subtext to it. It is in the same space as, say, a "Buddhu Sa Mann" ('Kapoor And Sons"). Arijit Singh sounds remarkably different, to the point that you are tempted to check the credits. Prakriti Kakar adds a lot of zing and freshness to her lines. The track compliments the fun ad young vibe of the film and the video has been shot well too. But, as a standalone audio track, it does not bring anything new to the table.

Singer and composer Zack Knight's pop number "Bom Diggy Diggy" was a major hit when it released several months back. The supremely catchy party track has now got a music video, featuring the two leading men of the film and a bevy of pretty women, to its name. The music video is very classy and has been shot on a good scale. The song should further help in getting the film more visibility and the success of the film should propel the popularity of the track to greater heights.

Guru Randhawa, who has been singing a lot of songs for T-Series, is brought in to add to the Punjabi and fun vibe of the soundtrack. "Kaun Nachdi" has everything that you expect in a standard Punjabi, pop dance number - EDM influence, lyrics which are abundant with phrases that the youth can identify with and some vivacious energy. The song does not break any new ground but its pulsating beats keeps you invested in it as a listener. Guru Randhawa does well as a singer, composer but Neeti Mohan's voice has been auto-tuned to an extent that it sounds unrecognizable.

Another Punjabi dance number arrives on the horizon with "Lakk Mera Hit" but this time the setting is that of a wedding celebration and Rochak Kohli brings in some freshness to the soundscape of the album. Despite adhering to the basic structure of most songs in this genre, the composer strikes a fine balance making it sound young and traditional at the same time. Sukriti Kakar leads from the front and owns the song with her spirited rendition. Kumaar excels, as he has always, in dance numbers that require a mixture of Hindi, Punjabi and English words.

A surprise is in store for one as "Tera Yaar Hoon Main" is a sharp departure from the fun vibe that rest of the songs in the album exude. Unlike "Subah Subah", Arijit Singh is in his elements here and does not sound awkward. Rochak Kohli weaves a melancholic sound and then comfortable puts in a portion of female vocalists singing which indicates the situation is that of a wedding happening in the background, while one of the friends (presumably) Kartik is worried about his friend (Sunny) being upset with him. The song brings some variety to the album and adds good value to it.

The soundtrack closes with "Sweety Slowly Slowly", the weakest track on the album. Composer duo Saurabh-Vaibhav get Mika to sing this quirky track and credit must go to the singer for infusing some life in to it. At best, it is a situation number that might manage to make some impression when one watches the film.

"Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety" is a mighty entertaining album that keeps you engages despite not breaking any new grounds in music. A mix of rehashed tracks and multiple composers delivering some fun numbers help the album succeed in its goal of delivering dollops of entertainment to the listener.
