1st stanza

It is a total display of HR's fixed formula of catchy repetitive hooks with the feel good lines KABSE, RABSE, OH JAANA

There is a slight Arabian touch from 2.16 to 2.20, 2.33 to 2.35

Between 1st and 2nd stanza, the catchy beat returns along with clap effect and the soothing female chorus from 3.06 to 3.19 is a musical treat especially the sudden abrupt twist at 3.12 which is a delight and BEST part. I totally fail to understand and give up why HR has stopped using one of his biggest assets in music i.e. the soothing female chorus. Shreya croons with her melodious vocals as a follow up.

2nd stanza

It is a total display of HR's fixed formula of catchy repetitive hooks with the feel good lines KYA HAI, EK CHEHRA, EK PHEHRA

2. The female chorus behind Sonu's lines and their melodious croons best part of the song in between 1st and 2nd stanza which is a musical delight.

3. The raw underlying rhythmic beats, the catchy beat effect at start, bazz trumpet, the Arabian touch in stanzas and the tabla effect followed by drum beat effect.

This is an effortless peppy feel good melody from HR courtesy due to the effective repetitive hooks.
