The second movie to release is a remake of the award-winning It's All Gone Pete Tong - a film based on the true story of an artist achieving success in his turbulent career laced with alcohol, drugs and sex whilst struggling with his internal demons and loss of hearing. The movie is laced in a more sinister edge and entwined deep in controversial issues. It sees Rajeev Khandelwal starring in the lead role opposite the gorgeous Soha Ali Khan. After making a mark in the TV industry and collecting praise in his prior two films, Rajeev seems to have made a small yet stable place on the big screen. Be it a man trying to save himself from the terrorists, an uptight cop or now a DJ, we assure you that there's definitely more to come from this actor. For those looking for something different, this is for you!

'Soundtrack' movie review

India Headlines Examiner

October 8, 2011 -

The Hindi movie 'Soundtrack', starring Rajeev Khandelwal as DJ Raunak Kaul, Soha Ali Khan and Mrinalini Sharma, was released in India and across the world on October 7, 2011.

The movie is directed by Neerav Ghosh, and is a remake of the 2004 English film 'Its All Gone Pete Tong'.

The story of the movie is about a popular DJ, who has exceptional skills to make every one groove to his tunes. But his excessive lifestyle makes him lose his focus towards his work and thus becomes permanently deaf. 

Due to his sudden hearing imparity, Raunak now find its difficult to pursue his dreams to make music. This is when Gauri, played by Soha, enters his life. Gauri too cannot hear but can lip read.

Raunak slowly gets attracted towards Gauri, who becomes his tutor and slowly begins to sense sound. Finally a deaf DJ becomes a popular composer.

Ghosh has attempted to make a docu-drama and has made it look like a biographical. Overall, 'Soundtrack' is a good movie to watch.

Director: Neerav Ghosh

Producer: Sanjiv Goenka and Apurv Nagpal

Music Director: Laxmikant Kudalkar, Midiwal Punditz, Karsh Kale, Pyarelal, Ankur Tiwari, Papon and Vishal Vaid

Introduction:

Soundtrack is directed by debutant director Neerav Ghosh which has a very interesting tale. Neerav Ghosh has chosen the perfect music directors for his movie Soundtrack which is a music based film. Rajeev Khandelwal is seen on big screen after a quite long time. Soha Ali Khan is playing key role as well female lead role in the movie Soundtrack. After watching the movie Soundtrack one can definitely not believe that the movie is directed by a debutant director.

Story:

Movie starts with introduction of Ronak Kaul (Rajeev Khandelwal) who wishes to do something big in music world. Ronak Kaul inherits passion for music from his father. He starts his career as a DJ in Tango Charlie club which is owned by Charlie (Mohan Kapoor). Unfortunately, Rohan Kaul diverts from music world into the drug world. Rohan Kaul starts taking drugs and alcohol. He then becomes deaf as he always listens to loud music. This makes Rohan Kaul deserted and he losses hopes on becoming big in Music world.

Here Gauri (Soha Ali Khan) enters who is born deaf. Rohan Kaul happens to meet Gauri and he falls for her. Gauri then brings a ray of light to Rohan Kaul's life. How Rohan Kaul fulfills his dreams forms the rest of the story.

Performances:

Rajeev Khandelwal as Rohan Kaul have given an outstanding performance. His acting was appreciable. Rajeev Khandelwal proved that he is a good actor. Soha Ali Khan was extraordinary. Her acting as a deaf female will make every one emotional. Hidden acting skills of Soha Ali Khan came out with the movie Soundtrack. Onscreen chemistry of Rajeev Khandelwal and Soha Ali Khan was heart throbbing.

What's Hot:

Direction of Neerav Ghosh is very soothing. Neerav Ghosh's direction is the main strength for the movie Soundtrack. The movie Soundtrack has a good and an interesting tale. No other actors would have done the roles better than Soha Ali Khan and Rajeev Khandelwal. Movie has got an innovative factor.

What's Not:

Cinematography of the movie Soundtrack was poor. Others actors were not having much role in the movie Soundtrack. Editing of few of the scenes could have been better. Music was not having the punch and dum required for the movie Soundtrack. First half seemed to be uninteresting.

Metromasti Rating:

The movie Soundtrack has a backdrop of drugs. This may be unsuitable to certain audience but the movie Soundtrack is a message oriented one. Soundtrack is worth to check out in theaters. Soundtrack is a juicy movie and a must watch film!

Metromasti Rating: 3/5

Guys Ayushmann the [Anchor/VJ]  has a show called Super Star Buzz on Star Plus..he gave the review of Soundtrack...He said it was a different movie...the direction was good..the screenplay was nice..he was talking about Soundtrack's story, how it is a story of a musician who goes deaf then he meets Soha & picks up the pieces of his life..he said that the first half of the movie was nice, the second half was a bit dragged.. he said that the only drawback of the movie is that, though the movie is about a musician, the music of the film is not very strong...then he said that Rajeev was very good in the role & he holds the movie together till the very end & he also said the movies highlight is it's protagonist, Rajeev Khandelwal...then he also said Soha was also nice after RDB...he went on to say the movie is not a typical masala film...he said for people looking for pure masala film, or family entertainer film, then Soundtrack is not for them...but for people who are looking for a different kind of movie & a good movie then they should watch Soundtrack...& yes he also said for people who like Anurag Kashyap kind of dark movies, they will like Soundtrack...Smile

FILM REVIEW: 'SOUNDTRACK'

Rajeev Khandewal and Soha Ali Khan Rock in One of Bollywood's Best Remakes

By: Parimal M. Rohit
October 8, 2011

(Indie Ideas/Saregama India Limited) Rajeev Khandelwal and Soha Ali Khan shine in the feel-good movie of the year, Neerva Ghosh's Soundtrack, which officially lit up silver screens around the world this weekend. A sanctioned remake of the 2004 cult classic, It's All Gone Peter Tong, Soundtrack chronicles the story of DJ Raunak Kaul (Mr. Khandelwal), an entertainer who skyrocketed to stardom as a deejay before alcohol and drugs brought him crashing back down to Earth. Raunak's fall is perpetuated by a sudden physical disability: he goes deaf.

 


Therein lies the heart of Soundtrack. Perhaps never touching a deejay console ever again, Raunak's misfortunes take a turn for the better when he meets Gauri (Ms. Khan). In Gauri, Raunak meets a lip-reading deaf person who turns out to be his partner and tutor. Even more, Gauri gives Raunak a reason to love music again and find a new way to entertain his fans: composition.

Essentially a biopic of a deejay who actually lost his hearing but became a music composer in real life, Ghosh presents Soundtrack with just the right mix of dramatic storytelling and compelling reality. Indeed, Soundtrack launches with a strong dose of reality  Raunak's escalating rise as a deejay meets uncontrollable debauchery, causing him to fall down almost as quickly as he came up.

A reality check comes in the second half, where the humanity of Raunak's rock-bottom situation as a man who had everything but lost it all suddenly takes over. Yet, instead of being a sob-story of someone who did not know how to responsibly manage his fame, Sountrack ends up being an intriguing tale of how one man's love for music was so strong, it helped him overcome even the most significant of obstacles, both self and naturally created.

After all, a story featuring a deaf man triumphantly finding a way to create music for the masses is next to impossible not to feel good about.

Accordingly, Mr. Khandelwal certainly delivers a strong performance as the chief protagonist. He definitely portrays Raunak in a way that makes him easily relatable to the audience. In short, Mr. Khandelwal is quite convincing.

Directly opposite him is Ms. Khan, who is quite classy and ingenious in portraying a similarly disabled person. Quite interestingly, Ms. Khan breaks the mold of the stereotypical leading Bollywood actress who is often just a vehicle to tell a love story. Here, Ms. Khan's portrayal of Gauri convincingly gives both the lead character (Raunak) and the film's story a substantive purpose.

The supporting cast features a memorable performance by Mrinalini Sharma; the film's cinematography is above average and the music, scored by Karsh Kale and the Midival Pundits, is top-notch.

Ultimately, Soundtrack is a well-put film featuring solid acting and a qualitatively feel-good story. While it has a few minor flaws that may keep it from being one of the best films of 2011, Soundtrack is still a must-watch, and there have been very few must-watches coming out of Bollywood this year.

Fans of Soundtrack may also like: Guzaarish, London Dreams, Rock On!!

Reasons to like Soundtrack: Strong storyline, acting, top-notch score

Movie Review: Soundtrack

Soundtrack is an official remake of a 2004 flick, 'It's All Gone Pete Tong.'

Starring: Rajeev Khandelwal, Soha Ali Khan, Mrunalini Sharma, Mohan Kapoor, Manu Rishi

Director: Neerav Ghosh

Producer: Sanjiv Goenka, Apurva Nagpal

Music: Kailash Kher, Vishal Vaid

Rating: ***


Based on true events, the story revolves around Raunak Kaul (Rajeev Khandelwal), an aspiring musician from a small town with big dreams. He starts his journey in the world of music as a DJ in Tango Charlie -a big-time club in Mumbai, owned by Charlie (Mohan Kapoor.) Destiny takes Raunak to early rise to riches and fame, but not without its hard downfall as well. A lifestyle of excessive sex and substance abuse takes its toll, leading Raunak to permanent disability. Is he able to come out of abysses of his disability? How?

 'Soundtrack' does not claim any megastar cast. However, Rajeev Khandelwal has been able get to the heart of the character and pull it off flawlessly.
Soha Ali Khan as Gauri – a savior and a messiah for Raunak when he is in despair, has depicted nuances of a deaf girl with such subtlety and dexterity that even lisp in her diction sounds convincing. Mrunalini Sharma – as Raunak's girlfriend, does not have much to.

Neerav Ghosh, a debutant director, shows a promising career ahead of him. He has shown his grip on the subject right from the opening shot where Raunak and his passion for music are introduced.  Though, Neerav has created some really innovative camera moves, at some points, he seems to be repetitive and overdoing - especially, in the first part.

Storyline is appealing; and dialogues -particularly in the second half, are impressive.

Music of this musical drama, even though, syncs well with the temperament of the story, leaves much to expect.

Overall, 'Soundtrack' is a worth watch for meaningful and sound cinema lovers.

Posted by Riyanki on October 9, 2011 at 9:39 am

Debutant director Neerav Ghosh's much awaited film Soundtrack has hit theatres. It is a Hindi adaptation of the 2004 Hollywood film titled 'It's All Gone Pete Tong'.

Dazzled by the glitz and glamour, gradually he loses focus towards his work as he becomes a victim to excessive drug consumption, alcohol, sex and disc consoles. To add to his misery, he also starts losing his hearing ability.

Star Cast- Rajeev Khandelwal is undoubtedly the star of the film. Whether it is his interaction with the inner self, his music avatar, his moments of mental depression or the final self-rejuvenation, he manages to keep his audiences hooked on with the diverse shades of his character. Soha Ali Khan is refreshing and does complete justice to her character of a deaf girl. Mohan Kapoor is simply amazing; Mrinalini Sharma is impressive while Yatin Karyekar delivers an honest performance.

Direction: Filmmaker Neerav Ghosh has done an incredible job as a debutant director. The film has flawless and perfect performances by the actors and an extremely appealing story without a single moment of boredom. He has narrated the story in his unique and creative style which will help audiences to constantly remain focused to the screen.

Music/ Cinematography/ Dialogues/Editing- The music forms the backbone of the film. It beautifully syncs with the subject of the film. The cinematography is innovative and one of the plus point of the film.

Verdict- Soundtrack is a well crafted film. It has a fresh concept which will surely grab the attention of the audiences. On the whole it is a must watch.

Rajeev Khandelwal, Mrinalini Sharma on film 'Soundtrack'

October 8, 2011 | Filed under: Bollywood | Posted by: Ankan Basu


Mumbai, Oct 4 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS) Trust directors who make sure that actors get into their respective characters. And debutante director Neerav Ghosh is not to be left behind.

Neerav who's directorial debut film Soundtrack which releases on 7th October made sure that his lead star Rajeev Khandelwal visited several nightclubs in Bangkok to get his act right as he plays a popular DJ and musician in the film.

Although Rajeev did undergo a four week DJ training workshop in Mumbai, Neerav feels that DJ's in Bangkok are showmen and entertainers in their own right. The core idea was to get an understanding of how to engage audience with just the music when there are more avenues of entertainment.

"When I visited Bangkok for recce I was quit blown away by the distinct and happening nightlife in Bangkok. I wanted Rajeev's character to be completely wacky and insisted that he must visit these clubs in order to get the act right." said director Neerav Ghosh.

"We do have lot of clubs in Mumbai and renowned DJ's in India too but Bangkok which is known for its nightlife was the best reference we could get," said Ghosh.

Rajeev said, "Bangkok's nightlife has a reputation of being wild and rowdy so I was initially extremely skeptical when Neerav asked me to visit these night clubs to get a feeler. When we finally got to visiting one, I was taken aback by Bangkok's lust-driven dens of sin.

"It was only on Neerav's insistence that I finally agreed to recce night clubs to meet the DJ's there and learn about their mannerisms. I experienced the loud levels of music DJs are exposed to all the time. The learning was phenomenal I realized there is so much more to learn than just put on earplugs to be a DJ. "

Soundtrack is an edgy, modern day portrayal of India's most prolific musician and DJ played by Rajeev Khandelwal.

It traces his alcohol, drug and sex fuelled meteoric rise, as he battles his internal demons and a damaging handicap. The film also stars Soha Ali Khan and Mrinalini Sharma.
