Those who were patiently awaiting the soundtrack of Emraan Hashmi’s upcoming biopic Azhar to release can finally heave a sigh of relief.

It was only expected that this film would offer some chartbusters, considering that it stars Emraan Hashmi, who is known to be part of films that have outstanding music. So, does it or doesn’t it? To start with, the filmmakers have achieved a fine balance of mature and young artistes, with Amaal Mallik, Pritam and DJ Chetas (guest composer) coming on board for this five-track album.

It kicks off with a Hashmi-style romantic ballad, Bol do na zaara, commendably handled by the brothers. While Amaal has composed the track, Armaan lends vocals that blend well with the composition and escalate the melody. The composition is soothing yet features some distinctive layering of the guitar, piano and the flute. This is definitely one of the best tracks of the album and could also find a place in the list of most popular romantic ballads of the year.

Arijit Singh takes the lead in the romantic track Itni si baat hain, also sung by Antara Mitra. The melody, composed by Pritam, oddly rides on the same scale as the previous composition. The orchestration is simple, lending weightage to the vocals. This rather commercial track doesn’t boast of experimentation and may fade pretty soon.

DJ Chetas has tried his hand at Kalyanji-Anandji’s composition Oye oye (Tridev), a classic of its time. The revised track has been sung by Aditi Singh Sharma and Armaan Malik. Sharma’s husky voice has hit the right chord with the hook line Oye oye. The composition is pepped up with club and disco beats. This track may not exude the magic of the original but it will definitely find a place on the playlists of club music.

Sonu Nigam has sung a duet Tu hi na jaane with Prakriti Kakkar for this upcoming biopic. Continuing the romantic flavour of the album, Mallik blends Indian and Western sounds of the piano, guitar, tabla and the flute for this composition. The mellow number highlights the prowess of Nigam’s vocals.

In sync with the storyline, which is based on the life of cricket legend Azharuddin, the album ends on a strong note, with the inspiring track Jeetne ke liye, composed by Mallik. The rock ballad can easily be considered the film’s theme song and the hard-hitting composition escalates with applause-worthy singing by KK.

Verdict: A soothing album.
