The soundtrack of Akshay Kumar's Boss does live up to some expectations, with multiple music directors dishing out some well-composed songs. After all, when you have got an out and out masala film, one expects the music and songs to be entertaining and impactful.

The album has eight songs, with the title track of Boss coming first, which starts off on a high note with a royal feel to it. Composed and sung by Meet Bros Anjjan with lyrics penned by Kumaar, its an easy-going song with a blend of hip - hop, which opens with traditional Maharashtrian style tutari and dhol playing in the background to mark the arrival of the Boss.

Yo Yo Honey Singh makes an entry on 'Boss' too with his Haryanvi rap, which is both funny and quirky (sample this: Akshay Kumar toh bhai hain apna, bol toh sahi photo kara dun). Hum na tode in Vishal Dadlanis voice comes next, which is inspired by the popular Tamil song Apdi pode. P.A.Deepak has composed a fun, peppy dance number for 'Boss' with a racy rhythm. Akshay Kumar joins in with a few humorous lines in Haryanvi, which is very amusing.

Pitah se hai naam tera sung by Sonu Niigaam is a soft number, with lyrics by Kumaar that will fit well into the narrative of 'Boss' . This composition by Meet Bros Anjjan is an ode to fathers which is quite unique, considering most of the songs composed in the past have glorified mothers, completely ignoring the fathers. Singh comes back with the energetic Party all night, which is targeted at club hopping party lovers. He fuses in Haryanvi rap with a foot-tapping dance music, making it an interesting number.

Har kisi ko nahi milta, sung by Nikhil DSouza, comes as a breath of fresh air on 'Boss'. The popular number from Jaanbaaz gets a soft - rock makeover, with alterations made to the lyrics by Manoj Yadav. Chirantan Bhatts recreation is a well composed love ballad, which makes an entry again with a duet version, with good vocals by Arijit Singh and Neeti Mohan.

The instrumental Boss entry theme has some interesting orchestration, with just the right amount of desi beats and rap. However, the Boss title remix by Meet Bros Anjjan featuring DJ Khushi is passable. If you look at the album on the whole, it does manage to impress with an interesting mix of songs. Party all night and Har kisiko nahi milta clearly stand out. Although the soundtrack may not appeal to everyone, some songs are definitely entertaining.
