My 2 cents:
Just listening to them for the first time. Not that impressed. May be Mani ratnam and A R Rahman gave me lots of hope. They are not catchy. Few songs have touch of Gujarati songs which sounds awesome and different all together. I hope after watching a movie I start liking it.

Listen to the songs and leave a comment.
