Love Games

Banners: T-Series, Vishesh Films
Producers: Mukesh Bhatt, T-Series
Music Directors: Sangeet Haldipur and Siddharth Haldipur
Lyrics: Kausar Munir, Vikram Bhatt
Music Label: T-Series

With the combination of Vikram Bhatt and T-Series, listeners expect no less than a chartbuster album from the upcoming film Love Games. Bhatt has got Sangeet and Siddharth Haldipur of Murder 2 fame to compose the soundtrack for his upcoming directorial venture. The composers have tried to experiment with the romantic genre by bringing in different sounds in this seven-track album. While most of the lyrics have been penned by Kausar Munir, Vikram Bhatt has also written two tracks for his film.

Typical to the Bhatts’ musical style, the album kicks off with a well-orchestrated track, Awargi, with the main base being piano tunes. The musical arrangement soon escalates with guitar strums and thumping drum beats. The limited yet well-executed musical piece gets impressive backing from Sangeet Haldipur and Rasika Shekar’s evocative vocals. The title track is quite interesting and has an appealing yet simple musical arrangement that borders on ‘50s cabaret style. The highlight of the Love games song is the sensuous vocals of newcomer Aanchal Shrivastava. The rendition is spot on and immediately attracts attention. Sangeet Haldipur goes behind the mic for the romantic number Mohabbat. The sound of the track is quite indie and it has an unplugged touch. The arrangements are minimal, with piano being the star of this composition.

Unlike regular thriller tracks, Nirvana, like its name, is quite unusual. The song has an international feel and is sung by Mohan Kanan of the band Agnee. With thumping drum beats and musical arrangements that escalate towards the climax, the track has a haunting feel.

The Aa zara (Murder 2) team of Sunidhi Chauhan and Sangeet Haldipur is back with yet another thriller track Aye dil. The track exudes a haunting appeal backed by musical arrangements purely sketched on percussion beats. Though it doesn’t have the unmistakable appeal of Aa zara, the experience of Sunidhi Chauhan as an extremely accomplished singer comes across as she expertly switches her pitch and tempo.

Vikram Bhatt has written two tracks, Lock him up and Poison. This is one of the few Bollywood films to have a pure English track. For Lock him up, the musical arrangement is a mix of genres, with blues and soul being the primary slate. The highlight of the orchestration is the synthesis of the sitar played by Pt Ravindra Chary and guitar strums. Poison is an outright rock track filled with coarse guitar and drum beats.

Verdict: A classic as well as contemporary album.
