Even if one didn't know that Wanted has Salman Khan in it, while listening to the songs one can immediately visualise his presence in the tongue in cheek songs. The album reminds one of the cheeky flavour of 'Judwa', "Partner', 'Mujhse Shaadi Karogi'. So now you can immediately relate to what I'm talking about. It even has a song by Kamaal Khan in it (I'm sure he only gets a chance to sing in Salman Khan's films though he sings quite endearingly to give the man his due!)
Love Me Love Me - With mummy - papa lyrics is quite the tappori track, with a lazy beat. A good number to groove to. Justice to the track done by Wajid and Amrita Kak.
Ishq Vishq - The Kamaal Khan song is a cool listen. Quite the pick of the album, if one had to choose. Kamaal sings in characteristic style while Sunidhi does a great job. Suzanne's presence is really not that apparent in the song.
Dil Leke - is a disappointing track. If I may borrow a tappori term, I'd describe this one as 'thakkela', boring tune, hackneyed lyrcis and Shaan sounding as if he's being forced to sing this. Even for once Shreya doesn't sound inspired for this one!
Le Le Mazaa Le - A Latino song with a Latino beat. Brings Carnival time in Goa to the mind immediately. Could have been more racy and happening. An ok listen.
Jalwa - With good percussion use and sung by Wajid is an interesting number. A 'dhadakta - bhadakta' dance number.
Tose Pyaar Karte Hai - Sung in a 'dehaati' mood in great style and fun by Wajid and Sunidhi. A fun track.
Most Wanted Track - The title track in Salman's voice, despite a racy beat and sirens blazing in the background is ok - ok. Had the potential to be taken the next level.
The remaining songs in the album are all remixed versions of the above tracks.
The album is good but not great. I'm sure it does full justice to what the film demands. The visuals of the film and Salman gyrating to the beats can only add to the fun and tappori element it seeks to do justice to!
