Review: Soundtrack
Cast: Rajeev Khandelwal, Soha Ali Khan, Mohan Kapoor
Director: Neerav Ghosh

Hear this. DJ Raunak loses his hearing ability and gets to hear the voice of his conscience. Great premise for an onscreen human drama? Debutant director Neerav Ghosh, with incredible support from his leading man Rajeev Khandelwal, creates an engrossing defence of anti-hedonism.

Excessive self-indulgence is dumb. It can also make you deaf. So says the film's well-crafted screenplay. The message is driven home with a refreshing absence of self-importance.

A lot of the film's drama, if not all, is derived from Canadian film It's All Gone Pete Tong released six years ago. That film's inspirational thrusts are transferred with fluency and virility into Ghosh's art attack on the wages of excessive pleasure-pursuit.

Paul Kaye, who had played the lead in the original film, had delivered a pitch-perfect loss-of-hearing gain-of-soul performance. Khandelwal goes beyond the exigencies of his character in search of his lost character's tortured soul.

In the sequences where he comes to terms with his deafness, the actor brings to his face and physique the unmitigated anguish of a man watching himself topple over the edge.

It's a brilliant performance, by far the best male performance this year. Whether it's the body language of a wild DJ partying the nights away in a haze of alcohol or sharing those tender moments with Soha Ali Khan (cute, gentle, sensitive and effective), Ravee Khandelwal's face maps out the character's tormented flight into terrifying stillness.

Playing a man who watches his life spin out of control, the performance could have easily toppled over the edge. It holds.

The director uses a fabulous soundtrack. There are startling rock ballads punctuating Raunak's voyage into the damned. Old songs like Yeh jeevan hai iss jeevan ka yehi hai rang-roop or, for a beautifully crafted romantic interlude between Rajiv-Soha in the park, Khullam khulla pyar karenge hum donon are used to endearing effect.

The narrative moves in three predictable but pulsating sections.

Raunak's descent into a hedonistic hell, his shattering deafness and, best of all, the redemption that he finds through a haze of self-loathing as he takes flight into a world of idyllic love (a touch of Guru Dutt's Pyasa in the end when Raunak simply vanishes from the world of ruthless self interest) -- for a first-time director, Ghosh displays remarkable control over his scattered material on his shattered protagonist.
Admittedly the storytelling device (well-known real-life DJs and VJs are roped in to talk about 'Raunak') is borrowed from the Canadian film. But what the hell! Nothing in life is original. Not heaven not hell. Not pleasure, not pain, and certainly not art.

The absence of over-sentimentality and the self-mocking humour applied to Raunak's predicament imbue a wealth of mellow maturity to the storytelling.

Yup, Soundtrack gets it right. In telling the story of a man who stops hearing the world outside to finally start hearing his own inner voice, the film's strong sense of drama and redemption are comparable with the cinema of Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Soundtrack is a soul-stirring tale of a musician's voyage into deafening hedonism and a quiet redemption.

The director suffuses the soundtrack with snatches of a music that transports a fairly routine inspirational story to the sphere of a modern moral fable.

As for Khandelwal, his performance is so accomplished that he proves, not for the first time, that he's among the most engaging actors today. For the money, time and attention, he is the true rock star.

Rating: ***

The posters scream Soundtrack: Based on a true story. On watching, one is compelled to believe in the highs and lows of DJ Raunak Kaul's journey, whereas the fact is that he is actually only a fictional character. The film itself is a remake of the 2004 Canadian Indie film It's All Gone Pete Tong based on the legendary DJ Frankie Wilde — a hotshot Ibiza DJ who had fought his way to the top and then mysteriously disappeared from the music scene. The filmmakers make no bones about the film being a remake and credits are duly mentioned too.

No doubt that the groundwork is done already, but despite being a remake, the director shows sparks of creativity and talent, adapting it perfectly to fit the Indian music scene. The film's story is taken forward using 'talking head sequences' with real artists, mishmashed with a few fake characters too that spin a believable tale, and lend the film a false sense of authenticity.

Raunak Kaul's (Rajeev) passion for music is well-established in the opening shots itself. His uncle (Yatin Karyekar) helps him land a job in a popular nightclub where he starts DJing and soon becomes a crowd favourite. The owner Charlie (Mohan) impressed with his talent promises him the sky and even sets up a studio for him in Alibag where he leads the life of a rockstar with girlfriend Shonali (Mrinalini). It's as much a workplace as it is a haven for wild women and wilder parties. His ascent to the top as the most celebrated DJ in showbiz, also marks his simultaneous descent in the sex, booze, drugs and rock-n-roll kind of lifestyle.

Combined with insecurity and fear of failing like his musician dad had, see him create his own demon — (a joker replaces a badger from the original here) — that follows him around. The lifestyle takes a toll on his music and his career hits rock-bottom when he goes deaf. Frustrated, severely depressed and desperate, he locks himself in a buffered room for weeks. Finally, he decides to exorcise his inner demon and chases out the 'joker', a metaphorical way of showing him take back the reins of his life.

On his U-Turn to life he meets Gauri (Soha) a lip-reading teacher, who gives him the incentive to carry on. What follows is Raunak's struggle to not let his hearing disability keep him away from his passion of music.

Paul Kaye, the actor who played the DJ in the original won a few awards for his performance, Rajeev should be no different. It's a dream role for any actor and lends itself to some very intense moments that Rajeev does full justice to. Soha and Mrinalini do their bit well, as do Yatin and Mohan. The film's obviously made on a shoe-string budget, but the director doesn't let that affect the production quality. Clashing with a multistarrer, this one clearly proves that interesting cinema doesn't need moolah, exotic locales or mega-stars. Go watch!

Soundtrack keeps us on track

October 7, 2011  |   Filed under: ENTERTAINMENT  |   Posted by: admin

A re-make of Canadian movie "It's all gone Pete Tong", the Bollywood version, Soundtrack,  revolves around Raunak Kaul (Rajeev Khandelwal) who comes to Mumbai in search of a dream career. Soon he becomes a famous DJ and soon falls to the vices of any city — sex and drugs.

When he looses his hearing, he meets Gauri (Soha Ali Khan), who is also hearing impaired but an expert in lip reading. The story revolves around how she instills confidence in him to produce another album with the feel of music, if not hearing it, the way Beethoven would have produced the legendary music that cherishes many admirers even to this day.
