Music Album : Veer
Music Director: Sajid-Wajid
Cast: Salman Khan, Mithun Chakraborty, Sohail Khan, Jackie Shroff and Zarine Khan
Director: Anil Sharma
The movie is based on a Warrior prince named ‘Veer’, Played by Salman Khan. The story of the movie is written by Salman Khan and is directed by the ‘Gadar-Ek Prem Katha’ director Anil Sharma. The music of the movie is neither excellent nor it is bad. Veer, which failed on box-office surely grabbed some attention with its music.

Singers: Sonu Nigam
Not a typical Sonu Nigam song but still the tune catches your ears. The lyrics written by the maestro Gulzar are pleasing and the foot tapping music partnered by these lyrics brings a smile to your face. A song which might not find a place in someone’s playlist but will sure be listened to when played (accidently or purposefully).
Singers: Sonu Nigam,Sukhwinder Singh,Wajid,Neuman Pinto
Sonu Nigam is a versatile singer and we all know that but his stint in this song goes against his skills. Not a bad song but abrupt lyrics make this song look heinous. A Sukhwinder Singh kind of a song but still not a one that one regrets if missed.
3. Surili Ankhiyon Wale
Singers: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan,Suzanne D’Mello
This one is surely a masterpiece and again it involves none other than the master himself, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. A soulful track which should not only be listened but also felt with eyes closed. Amazing soothing lyrics which stays in your mind for long added with the magical voice of Rahat, this song sure creates a magic of its own. Even the stanzas which are sung by Suzzane D’Mello makes you want to appreciate her work despite the USP of the song i.e. Rahat.
4. Kanha (Tumhari)
Singers: Rekha Bharadwaj,Sharib Sabri,Toshi Sabri,Shabaab Sabri
A song not for the people who only listen to music but for those who not only listen but also go deep inside & then appreciated it. Rekha Bharadwaj again proves that she is the queen of classical & sufi music. Lyrics that will make you clap and a song that should be given a try.
Singer: Sukhwinder Singh
Like I said earlier, a Sukhwinder Singh trademark song but gone all wrong. A song which was not good at the first place is given a second try in the album which does no good to the reputation of this track. Bad judgment by Sajid-Wajid but the other soulful tracks recuperates this album from this blunder.
6. Surili Ankhiyon Wale
Singers: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan,Sunidi Chauhan,Suzzane D’Mello
Another gem of this album, though not different from the earlier version but still a song that can be listened to again-in the same album. The work of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan & Suzzane D’Mello has already been appreciated before; the added paragraph sung by Sunidi Chauhan neither adds anything to the song nor takes away anything.
7. Salaam Aaya
Singers: Roop Kumar Rathod,Shreya Ghosal,Suzzane D’Mello
A standing Ovation for this one to Sajid-Wajid. The song sung by the table maestro Roop Kumar Rathod is a one that touché the heart. A light song with affable lyrics. A song that can be heard at anytime and in any mood. If you are happy this will extend your smile and if you are sad this will bring a smile. Such is the magic of Roop saab. Shreya Ghosal’s & Suzzane D’Mello’s work should not go unnoticed in this composition as they surely add that oomph factor to this song.
8. Spirit of Veer (Instrumental)
Foot tapping instrumental which surely makes a person want to dance to it and it is a quality which very less instrumentals possess. Laudable work done by the duo.
Sajid-Wajid gives some mediocre yet commendable music in this film. Again the duo gave music to a Salman Khan movie which is becoming perfunctory and obvious for the people. Some great tracks in the album accompanied by some flops as well. The two-sidedness of the album does not hurt the listener as the good ones overpower the mediocrity displayed in the others.The lyrics are surely the USP of this album. An album which complements the theme of the movie so an extra point for Sajid-Wajid’s album Veer which should be given a chance as its songs are capable of invading anyone’s playlist.
