Reviews[edit]

Joginder Tuteja of Bollywood Hungama in his three star review, opined, "As mentioned at the very beginning, nothing less than a rocking album was expected from Don 2. Eventually what you get is a soundtrack that would go along with the narrative and acts as a good situational ingredient but that's about it." [2] Sukanya Verma of Rediff.com gave the album two out of five stars and said Don 2's music could fare much better if the composers Shankar-Ehsaan-and Loy had tried to step out of the prequel's shadow. Verma also highlighted that the music is safe, self-conscious.[3] Vivek V Warrier of koimoi gave the film 3 out of 5 stars stating: "The good news is that all the songs stick to the identity of the Don franchise. On the whole, the album is a good work by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy." [4]
