Less Atrangi this time!! (Wazir – Music Review)

Bejoy Nambiar is famous in managing multiple composers for his films quite impressively, not losing the unilateral flavor of the album.

1. Tere Bin – Singers: Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal;  Music: Shantanu Moitra;  Lyrics: Vidhu Vinod Chopra – Shockingly blatantly inspired from Afzal Yusuff’s Malyalam composition Oru Naal, this song has a lovely tune which apparently do not belong to Shantanu Moitra although he has done endearing instrumentation and a crooning sargam in the most appropriate duet jodi. The original should have been credited. 

2. Tu Mere Paas – Singer: Ankit Tiwari;  Music: Ankit Tiwari;  Lyrics: Manoj Muntashir – One reason why all his songs sound similar is because he sings all of them. Talking particularly about this song, it would have sounded a slightly different composition if he had not sung it. Lyrics here are worth praising. Lyrics make it worth attempting. 

3. Maula – Singer: Javed Ali;  Music: Shantanu Moitra;  Lyrics: Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Swanand Kirkire – Shantanu Moitra could have made a masterpiece out of this but he landed up making a very average shallow sufi number. There’s actually nothing in this song, just the numerous repetition of the same line; why it needed two lyricists for that, I doubt! Thanks to Javed Ali, the song managed to be a decent affair. 

4. Tere Liye – Singers: Gagan Baderiya, Prashant Pillai;  Music: Prashant Pillai;  Lyrics: A.M. Turaz – Just what you expect from Prashant Pillai, that is a heavy dose of techno sounds and not much work into the basic tune of the song. Turaz’s potential is not utilized properly as the space for lyrics is impeded by the composer. Wish if it was a proper song. 

5. Khel Khel Mein – Singer: Amitabh Bachchan;  Music: Advaita;  Lyrics: Abhijeet Deshpande – Not a proper song, but a really impressive theme-sounding track which has Big B’s voice in prosaic form, having a nice instrumentation throughout. Advaita could have delivered something even better though. 

6. Wazir Theme – Instrumental;  Music: Gaurav Godkhindi – Theme tracks are expected to have impact on the screen only, and anyway, this track has nothing attractive on its own. It may get better with the visuals. An average thematic experience. 

Additional Song: Atrangi Yaari – Singers: Amitabh Bachchan, Farhan Akhtar;  Music: Rochak Kohli;  Lyrics: Deepak Ramola, Gurpreet Saini – Surprisingly the song which is not included in the main album, an additional track is the best song of the album. Rochak Kohli has completely justified the mood of this atrangi yaari between these two actors and singers. Big B sounds great and so is Farhan. The song is catchy and has a great repeat value. Not beneficial to skip this one. #WelcomeSong 

Shantanu Moitra, Ankit Tiwari lessen the creative space which the soundtracks of Bejoy Nambiar’s films generally have. 

The Final Verdict:  OKAY
