Music Review(Hindi): Wazir

Music Review(Hindi): Wazir
Music Composers: Shantanu Moitra, Prashant Pillai, Advaita, Ankit Tiwari

In Tere bin, Shantanu Moitra throws us back into his Parineeta while Shreya Goshal and Sonu Nigam's rendition are delightful as always especially Shreya's lovely sargams throughout the song. Shantanu's pleasant tune is complemented well by soothing arrangements with minimal violin and tabla. Tu mere pass is a typical Ankit Tiwari song with stretched prelude portions followed by breezy guitar laden track sung earnestly by composer itself. Maula is a standard qawwali affair where the instrumentals follow a templatized song with Javed Ali behind the mic being the only silver lining in this seven-minute song by Shantanu Moitra. Prashant Pillai's Tere Liye Mere Kareem is the most effective song in the soundtrack which starts as an earnest prayer kind of vocals whereas the song shifts in the midway into an adrenaline pumping string sections with quite an enticing vocals of Gagan Baderiya. Next best song in the album belongs to Advaita band's Khel Khel main and the song is mostly intriguing instrumental with reverberating vocals of Amitabh Bachanr. Loved especially Sarangi solos in the song. The theme song of wazir although three minutes long makes less impact and the theme may make an impact with visuals.

Verdict: Bejoy Nambiar's Wazir soundtrack features again multi-composer, but this soundtrack falls behind when compared to the effectual diverse sounds in David.

My rating: 7.5/10
