Azhar (Music review), Hindi – Amaal Malik, Pritam, DJ Chetas, Kalyanji-Anandji
Sonu Nigam and Prakriti Kakkar are surprisingly restrained in Tu hi na jaane; the tune is also too familiar. Jeetne ke liye has KK trying to rouse emotions in a clearly templatized setting. But Amaal wins with Bol do na zara, a Gangster-Tu hi mera style, Emraan-brand melody handled brilliantly by Armaan Malik. Pritam’s lone composition, Itni si baat hai is competently delivered by Arijit, though the tune evokes severe ennui, but with spiffy orchestration. DJ Chetas mixes Tridev’s Oye oye and a smattering of Gali gali mein, to produce a dance-floor stomper. Bol do na zara wins in Azhar.
