There is certain consistency that the team of Do Lafzon Ki Kahani manages with its music, writes Aelina Kapoor.
Okay, so Randeep Hooda is turning out to be one of the most versatile actors around.
He goes rustic for Laal Rang, makes you sympathise with him in Sarbjit and could now well drive girls weak in their knees with Do Lafzon Ki Kahani. For the first time, he does a romantic musical which doesn't hold back when it comes to bringing on songs that turn out to be quintessentially Bollywood.
The opening number, Kuch toh hai, is from the Amaal Mallik stable. It’s the kind of song Emraan Hashmi would grab with both hands.
Brother Armaan Malik’s style of singing caters to the younger audience, especially teenagers, and this one is bang in that category with able support coming from Manoj Muntashir's love soaked lyrics.
Babli Haque's music for Jeena marna steps into (way too) familiar territory; his Sufi-ish tune would have sounded novel five years ago. Even Sandeep Nath's lyrics and Altamash Faridi's rendition of this happy-sad song have a sense of deja vu.
Fortunately though, there is certain newness in the way Palak Muchhal sings the female solo version.
The song is not bad; it is just that you don't jump with joy hearing it.
Another newcomer composer, Arjuna Harjai, is entrusted with the responsibility of delivering a soulful solo, supported by lyricist Kumaar.
The video of the song, Ankhiyan, is out and it pretty much signifies the memories that the leading lady, Kajal Agarwal, lives on once her eyesight returns. As she reminisces about the times gone by, the music provides able support.
Sehra is the last song in the soundtrack. Though not extraordinary, it does well in ensuring the overall sur of the soundtrack is maintained.
There is certain consistency that the team of Do Lafzon Ki Kahani manages with its music. Lyricist Sandeep Nath and composer-singer Ankit Tiwari ensure it is maintained till the end.
When compared to some of the other soundtracks that have been churned out in 2016, the music of Do Lafzon Ki Kahani keeps your attention most of the time. And it does this without having a single party/daru/talli/nasha/item song in there, which is a feat in itself!
