Directed by Punit Malhotra, I Hate Luv Storys doesn’t only have an unique spelling but also some refreshing tracks. The duo of Vishal-Shekhar gives us some very beautiful and refreshing tracks which sets the tone for the movie. With the young starcast of Imraan & Soham the tracks needs to fit to the youngsters. Lets see what Vishal -Shekhar has stored for us in this album.
The album has around 8 tracks which include both remixes & originals. The album opens with Jab Mila Tu sung by Vishal Dadlani. First listen and this song will remind you of Jaane Kyu from the movie Dostana. It’s still a feel nice song. A good one time listen. Next comes up is Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan & Sunidhi Chauhan’s Bin Tere. A very good melodious number with some good lyrics. Very well sung by Shafqat who gives us a good break from all the regular singers. A soothing number which is worth a listen.
The acoustic version of Bin Tere sung by Shekhar and his guitar is just as refreshing as the original one but I found it more melodious and appealing than the original. Beautifully sung by Shekhar. Can be the next romantic number to hit the ipods. The remix version of the album is jst fine and mixed fr the discs.
The third original in the album is the title track I hate Luv Storys. Sung by Vishal Dadlani himself, this one is a peppy & a catchy track. Mix of english and hindi lyrics might make this one appealing to some people. Fine for one time listen. Next in line comes an unsual number for the album. A surprise one- Bahara sung by Shreya Ghoshal with some earthy lyrics from Sona Mahaparta. Sona comes in the background with some good folky tunes with Shreya in the foreground makes this one a good listen. There is a chill version of Bahara with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan but I believe the original one does the work with me. Plus Vishal-Shekhar should have experimented Sona & Rahat Fateh here.
The last track in the album is Sadka Kiya sung by Suraj Jagan & Mahalaxmi Iyer. Now this one will slowly creep over you. Suraj Jagan & Mahalaxmi Iyer delivers very well in the vocals, with some very good lyrics & the wonderful music. Another romantic number which will surely woo people. One of the best tracks of the album.
Overall the album is quite refreshing one. Best part of the album is that all songs are good and worth listening. Vishal-Shekhar never ceases to disappoint and they don’t do it this time too.
