The music of Amit Saxena-directed erotic movie "Nasha" has six tracks. In contrast to the film's theme, the songs are romantic and soothing. Music directors Sangeet and Siddharth's compositions will surprise listeners in a pleasant manner.

The first song is "Tera nasha". Sung by Anirudh, it gradually gains in tempo without losing its smoothness. Anirudh has sung it in a very peaceful and cool tone. Although it might not be perfect in rhythm, the singer's surreal voice makes it a good song. There is no use of heavy music or too many instruments - only the guitar takes the lead.

Next is "Laila", which has Monali Thakur behind the mike. A very sweet song, it is not an item number. While the track talks about the sensuality of a character, there is no heavy beats or 'dhinchak' feel to it. Monali scores well as she sings with a tinge of youthful ardour, giving it a vibrant feel. The whistling bit in the end is fun to hear.

The male version of the song has been done by Sangeet and Siddharth and it is much softer.

Singers Shaan and Anusha Mali come together to croon "Besharam". The lyrics are in

layman's language and the track can very well attract the young college-going crowd because of its fresh and youthful appeal. The singers' voices complement each other.

"Goti song" is a perfect combination of fun, uselessness and naughtiness and listeners may wonder about its purpose. Sung by Akshay Deodhar, Sukriti Kakkar and Prakriti Kakkar, it suddenly picks up pace and becomes a group song. The lyrics do get a little naughty, but at the same time they are funny and quirky.

"Nasha Mix", the last track, is the only one with considerably fast beats. Being a mix, it has fast beats and punk in it. Sangeet Haldipur's voice adds a kind of romanticism to the song.

The six tracks of "Nasha" do not have anything erotic. Rather the music is sweet, simple and has a very calm undertone. Of course, one cannot vouch for the videos of the songs, but the audio definitely is good and soothing in its own respect.
