1.Tere Bin-Sonu Nigam,Shreya Ghoshal,Hamsika Iyer
Shantanu Moitra strikes with the very first song of the album. Composed on the lines of Piyu Bole from Parineeta, this soulful melody is instantly addictive right from the beginning. Shantanu weaves a classical tune, giving it touches of tabla, lilting guitar strums and piano notes. You can expect only magic when the lead singers are Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal, whose velvety voices are honey to the ears, while Hamsika Iyer amply backs them up with her swara humming. Easily the best of the whole lot!
2.Tu Mere Paas-Ankit Tiwari
Ankit Tiwari steps in with this scintillating melody which has an Aashiqui 2-ish and a Rahman-ish touch to it. The composer's passionate voice flows mellifluously along with the melodious tune which moves like a slow love ballad. The unplugged feel of the number is the best aspect of it. Though the tune might not get into your nerves on the very first listen, it will surely act as a slow poison!
Who else can do justice to a Sufi number than Javed Ali? Right from the aalaap in the beginning till the end of the song, it is his show all the way. Be it the crescendo touches or the gamaka-filled portions, he excels in every portion of the number. Since it is a situational number, it might not go down well with casual listeners. But Sufi lovers would surely cherish this track for a lifetime. Pure divine!
4.Tere Liye Mere Kareem-Gagan Baderiya,Prashant Pillai
Here comes yet another situational number which may appear at a crucial point in the film. Prashant Pillai composes a catchy tune with racy rhythm arrangement and some international instrumentation. Gagan Baderiya and Prashant Pillai render this number with all their energy. It would do well along with the visuals.
5.Khel Khel Mein-Amitabh Bachchan
Though this isn't actually a song, the recital of the lyrics in the baritones of Amitabh Bachchan makes it a motivational listen. This one is an awesome classical-western fusion woven by Advaita (band). The violin bits along with the upbeat rhythm makes it a piece that is not to be missed, especially if you are a true experimental music lover.
6.Atrangi Yaari-Amitabh Bachchan,Farhan Akhtar
Beginning with ebullient guitar strums, this song on friendship is composed by Rochak Kohli and crooned by the lead actors Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar. The jovial tone of the singers and the carefree nature of the tune makes the number a heartwarming listen. The tune paints an overall happy mood to the song which can be listened on repeat mode. Enjoyable!
A thumping theme composed by Gaurav Godkhindi brings the album to a fitting finale. This instrumental piece carries the true essence of the movie. The symphonic arrangement, exhilarating percussion section and chord progression are quiet haunting and indicates the dark element in the film.
Wazir consists of songs that are ultimate melodies and situational ones. If you are a true music buff, you'd be able to enjoy this contemporary multi-composer soundtrack which is sans any commercial element.
