Film: I Hate Luv Storys
Punit Malhotra
Music Director: Vishal & Shekhar
Lyrics: Anvita Dutt, Vishal Dadlani, Kumaar
Singers: Vishal Dadlani, Shafaqat Amanat Ali, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shreya Goshal, Sona Mohapatra, Suraj Jagan, Mahalaxmi Iyer, Shekhar Ravjiani, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan

I Hate Love Storys is among 2010's most awaited - for more reasons than one may count off the fingers of both hands. With Vishal - Shekhar at the helm of affairs for music concerned, and their past records indicating the likes of Om Shanti Om, Dostana, Salaam Namaste among much else, one can be certain to raise expectations up a few notches from the IHLS album.

Vishal Dadlani opens with Jab Mila Tu. The energy of this song is greatly reminiscent of the popular Dostana track Jaane Kyun, although it manages to stand out of its own accord in certain ways still. The background score holds forte throughout and unusual lyrics penned by Anvita Dutt, fall in right places with just the right notes. If well begun is half done - this song takes the album half way to success!

Next is Shafaqat Amanat Ali Khan and Sunidhi Chauhan's Bin Tere. Sure, the title of this song sounds overused already - but don't be judgmental yet! The melody of this track is a winner, and the lyrics hold strong vying for their share of credit. Written by Vishal Dadlani himself, the vocals for this song deserve no less a mention, especially singer Shafaqat.  Background score added to this well stirred concoction and we say this number can take the best spot in the album.

Bin Tere has a reprise version sung by Shekhar Ravjiani and written by Kumaar. The guitar score is as refreshing as the original version. However, this reprise on the whole takes a lead on its fore runner, the original. The romantic list on your IPods will find no reason to miss this one.

There is even a remix Bin Tere track, phew! Not bad, but nothing much against the two before.

Coming along next is title track I Hate Luv Storys. Lively, catchy, sung by Vishal, this one is bound to grow on the youth. Kumaar pens some brilliant Gen-X lyrics in English. This composition from Vishal befits the status of a title song, as one rightfully should!

Bahara is an unusual track amidst the others in this album - in an alter genre way. While Shreya Ghoshal never fails to deliver, Sona Mohapatra echoes in the background with an addictive amalgamation of folk tunes.  Lyrics by Kumaara are perhaps this song's only shortcoming, somewhat. With veterans like Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Shreya Goshal lending vocals, the song still manages to be average only.

In conclusion comes the soft melody of Sadka. Sung by Suraj Jagan and Mahalaxmi Iyer, this song is a promising end to the album that keeps you turning back. The background score is absorbing, and the lyrics engage one's attention to their message - a revelation of deep feelings, delivered wonderfully by the singers. While the opening track led to well begun, Sadka lets the curtains fall upon all's well that ends well.

Vishal - Shekhar have added to their accolades with the music making of I Hate Love Storys. If you haven't checked it out yet, we suggest you wait no more!

Author especially recommends: Bin Tere, Sadka, I Hate Love Storys ...
