The music of the film was composed by Stephen Prayog.[4] The soundtrack focused mainly on the fusion music of Indian and western styles. Popular Bollywood playback singers Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal rendered their voices for the songs, with Ghoshal making her debut in Kannada cinema. The soundtrack included a pure Kannada light music song "Yede Thumbi Haadidenu" composed by Mysore Ananthaswamy and written by acclaimed poet G. S. Shivarudrappa. On the other side, it had the musical bits played by the giants of Western Classical Music such as Beethoven and Mozart.[5] The track "Krishna Nee Begane Baaro" is an adaptation of the renowned classical song of the same name, originally composed and written by saint Vyasatirtha in the raga Yamuna Kalyani.

All music composed by Stephen Prayog.
