Azhar (Music review), Hindi – Amaal Malik, Pritam, DJ Chetas, Kalyanji-Anandji

Posted by Karthik

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.

    Rather enjoying this one! I liked Tu Hi Na Jaane a lot more than I thought I would.

    It’s a shame T-Series did not include Babul Supriyo’s version of Itni Si Baat Hai on the soundtrack. I love his voice, especially after his amazing songs in the most recent season of Coke Studio.

      Any reference or link to Babul Supriyo’s version?

        Yup, you can hear it in the “Making Of” video:

          Thanks 🙂 I think I would have loved that more. Would have been more apt, like Kumar Sanu sung in dum laga ke haisha.
