Music Review: Baaghi

The first track, “Sab Tera”, was the first video song to be released from Baaghi. A melodious romantic track, there is nothing particularly new or unique in the melody but Shraddha Kapoor and Armaan Mallik’s voices, complementing the soft mellow orchestration, make this song a beautiful listen. The picturesque beach backgrounds in the video also add a nice touch to this track.
