With a Yashraj Films project on deck for release, one surely
expects a melodious soundtrack to hit the floor along with it. Does the
upcoming Luv Ka the End
, starring Shraddha Kapoor
of Teen Patti
fame and debutant Taaha Shah, live up to these expectations? Wonder no more, as we at BollyCurry are here to keep you in the know!
The music for this rom-com has been composed by Ram Sampath, who has previously composed songs for ventures like Peepli Live, Family, and several others. The lyrics have been penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
album starts with the title song, "Luv Ka the End", sung by Aditi Singh
Sharma. While most rom-com musicals have a soft and sentimental number
for their starter, this one breaks the norm as it describes a love
that's fizzling out rather than sizzling. However, the mood of the song
is not at all ominous and gloomy, instea
d taking on a peppy and lively
feel. When Aditi starts to sing it in all her natural calibre, it
becomes more enjoyable. Overall, a nice start!
up is a soft number about a nervous girl who is both restless and
excited about her first night out with her boyfriend; it describes what
would have happened the night before she decided to put a 'the end' to
love. "Tonight" is a simple and sweet song with a captivating innocence
and has been sung well by Suman Sridhar, who does an apt and believable
take on singing for an 18 year old.
number, "Freak Out", is definitely the highlight of the entire album.
The first duet on the list, it has been sung by Aditi Sharma again, who
proves to be in her element with the track. This time she is accompanied
by Joi Barua. The song is the cream of the crop because of its unique
and intriguing picturisation that has never before been tried in a Hindi
film. With animation in practically every frame of its video, it is
very well accompanied by the fun quotient that Ram Sampat's music lends
quite generously. Even though "Freak Out" lasts hardly for three
minutes, it definitely makes for a worthy repeat-listen.
comes a song that has been promoted as an item number that would leave
'Munni' and 'Sheila' behind; however, this song sung by Krishna is a big
let down. Let alone competition, it doesn't even come close! It is a
spoof song that features a man disguised as woman who tries to dance to
the below-average tunes of 'The Mutton Song'. In a nutshell, it's a huge
disappointment to those who gave a real thought to it joining the ranks
of Munni and Sheila. If you, instead, had no expectations from it,
congrats on making an accurate prediction!
next track, 'F.U.N. Fun Fanaa' is the only track in the film that
boasts off a male grabbing the stage. Sung by Ali Zafar
, it is a groovy
number that takes the ratings of the album a notch higher with its fun
lyrics and complimenting instrumentals. Although, if one was expecting
this to be another Ali Zafar
chartbuster in the making, then one would
have to be disappointed and look ahead to his next offering.
concluding song, 'Heppy Budday Beybee', has been chanted by Jimmy
Moses, and it is just plain unbearable. So much so, that this Buzzer
does not even think it worthy of further description. Fortunately, it
lasts only for 45 seconds.
Taken as a whole,
the film's music is not really a bad deal. When looked through a music
lover's eyes, it's a cool album with real pep-rock songs and is worth
giving a thought!
