‘Wanted’ is a remake of the super hit Tamil movie, Pokkiri directed by Prabhu Deva. The Hindi version of the film is also directed by Prabhu Deva and produced by Boney Kapoor. The composer duo of Sajid-Wajid is famed for foot tapping rhythm and beats. The album has seven original songs and five remixes. Let us see if the duo creates any magic this time around.

Dil Leke---
Vocals: Shaan and Shreya Ghoshal.

The industry’s prized singers Shaan and Shreya Ghoshal have rendered this song beautifully. ‘Dil leke’ is a refreshing change from the usual soft romantic numbers by the duo. This soft number makes an impression and grows on the listener. The remix of the same is sure to create waves on the dance floors.

  Wanted
 

Ishq Vishq---

Vocals: Kamaal Khan, Sunidhi Chauhan and Suzanne D'Mello.

Kamaal Khan continues to display a hangover of his last hit ‘O O Jane Jaana’. Ishq Vishq has a feel of a typical 90’s love song, but its melody does not escape the ear. Kamaal has sung many songs for Salman which have been hits. Here too he tries to make his presence felt. You also get to hear Sunidhi and Suzanna in the background. The remix of the number fails to make an impression.

 

‘Jalwa’---

Vocals: Wajid and Earl.

This track makes a desperate attempt to carry off bhangra pop in a complete hip hop ishtyle. The over dose of ‘Jalwa’ in the background is more annoying and takes away the attention from the music. The remix does not make an impact either.




Le Le Mazza Le---
Vocals:
Suzanne D'Mello, Soumya Rao, Hrishikesh Kamerkar and Nikita Nigam.


This number gives the feel of Middle Eastern style of music, which was hugely used in the last decade. The song fails to deliver the punch which is projected in the trailers.




Love Me Love Me---
Vocals:
Wajid and Amrita Kak.

This track has been made just for Salman Khan fans. Wajid tries to recreate the ‘You’re my love’ effect from Partner attempting to match Sallu’s style of delivery. This is the best track of the album and is sure to have the listeners swaying to its beats. The remix is a sad attempt.




The Most Wanted Track---
Vocals:
Salman Khan.

The title track of the film reverberates in Salman’s voice. The actor’s personal touch to the song gives it a unique musical timbre.




Tose Pyar Karte Hain---
Vocals:
Wajid, Sunidhi Chauhan and Earl.

The beats of the song leave the listener reminiscing Amitabh’s ‘de de pyar de’ from Sharabi. This is a typical song set in the village with boy and girl running around trees. The song lacks sheen. The Bhojpuri mix of the song is ok but does not have the zing.




Verdict:

On the whole the music does not do justice to the Salman Khan Movie. The trailers raise expectations but the duo disappoints us this time. The sound track could have been more superior.
