The life of the former Indian Cricket captain Mohammad Azharuddin has been extremely controversial and who better than Emraan Hashmi could play him in Tony D’Souza directed Azhar. Pritam had been hired for the music but due to some health issued, he had to leave midway and Amaal Mallik was called to the rescue. The one song by Pritam has been retained, and a Kalyanji-Anandji song that has been remade by DJ Chetas.

1. Bol Do Na Zara – Singer: Armaan Malik; Music: Amaal Mallik; Lyrics: Rashmi Virag – The best thing about this song is that Amaal is able to keep the ethos of Main Rahoon Ya Na Rahoon alive. With his brother Armaan, he has again delivered miraculously effortless melody that easily sails to your heart. Rashmi Virag’s lyrics deserve special mention. The lyrics have few lines that deserve attention. A melody full of charm!!
2. Itni Si Baat Hain – Singers: Arijit Singh, Antara Mitra; Music: Pritam; Lyrics: Manoj Yadav – The old wine Pritam after a long time has come with his late 2000s avatar where he delivers a free-flowing melody without much experimentation, and that structure of inviting the female voice only in the antara. The composition is tremendously beautiful, instantly likable, and unpretentious. Lyrics walk quite on the same route, saying as simply as could itni si baat hai, mujhe tumse pyaar hai. Extremely Pritam!
3. Oye Oye – Singers: Aditi Singh Sharma, Armaan Malik; Music: Kalyanji-Anandji (Recreated by DJ Chetas); Lyrics: Manoj Yadav – Manoj Yadav pens the next song which is a remake of a superhit Kalyanji-Anandji song from Tridev. Since the remake has been done by a DJ, the beats had to be the prime focus in the song. The composition is quite weak though. Nevertheless, Aditi and Armaan amazingly carry the song and make it decent enough to enjoy.
4. Tu Hi Na Jaane – Singers: Sonu Nigam, Prakriti Kakar; Music: Amaal Mallik; Lyrics: Kumaar – This is very different from what Amaal has been doing in past. Choosing Sonu Nigam for this song, seems to have proved a brilliant step in favor of Amaal. The composition carries a lot of depth in it. Prakriti quite responsibly supports Sonu Nigam, proving to be another right choice. When it comes to writing sad songs, one well knows how efficient Kumaar is. A mature composition, handled with utter maturity. #WelcomeSong
5. Jeetne Ke Liye – Singer: K.K.; Music: Amaal Mallik; Lyrics: Kumaar – The song seems to have been made especially for K.K. It has all the apt notes for him to hit and make his mark as he always does. The composition is quite predictable yet pleasurable to hear. Kumaar’s lyrics has the similar predictability, nevertheless, the song enormously carried by K.K. does make impact.
With a decent remake, a song by Pritam, three by Amaal Mallik, Azhar manages to grip you quite effortlessly.
