We know the groovy promo track of Love Sex Aur Dhokha began buzzing in your head as soon as it debuted on the small screen. The infectious tune, its peppy rhythm and not to forget the unapologetically bold lyrics make the song a musical gem.
Take a bow, all ye music lovers for Sneha Khanwalkar the young, unstoppable and the only female music director to be working in Bollywood. She again teams up with director Dibakar Banerjee, who has also written the bold and bristling lyrics of ‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’, which are at some point cheeky but with a right attitude.
Jumping directly to the album, first we get to hear the LSD Title Track - in one word I would like to describe this track as dhasu. Crooned by Kailash Kher and with lyrics like Kat Ke rakh dunga jo tune chhoone se roka, the track catches your fancy in the first go. And don’t forget to keep a tab on your kids because you never know when its gripping tune will fascinate their inquisitive minds. The remix version crooned by singer Nagarjuna is a bit haunting. Not bad at all.
You have heard several Punjabi songs till now, but we are sure you haven’t heard something like this. Tainu TV Pe Vekhya is not only a terrific rustic song but also takes a dig at today’s TV reality shows. And the lyrics verily expose the sham of reality shows. Unlike any other situational track, the song bowls you over.
Sneha belts out the next number I Can’t Hold It Longer which is like Rihanna’s ‘Russian Roulette’ number which is rated ‘R’. Why? The song has used the FO abbreviation very cleverly. And what makes this song a potential hit is its retro-rustic flavor. Sneha loves to experiment with every genre and she has shown with this song what she is capable of. The song is one of the best numbers to have come from Bollywood in recent times.
Mohabbat Bollywood Style will make you feel how stupidly love is shown in Bollywood and as the movie also shuns and perhaps even scorns the clichéd idea of ‘true, eternal love’ through its contemporary take on relationships, the song does impress you. Sung by Nihira Joshi and Amey Dale, the song is in a way a mockery of romantic films made in Bollywood. There is also a mention of Adi Chopra in the song.
Now comes the most controversial track - Tu Gandi Acchi Lagti Hai which successfully depicts the man’s basic need of sex. The somber tone and the serious music of the song makes it a number not for all times, and yes it is a situational track.
The album has two bonus songs, Kailash Kher’s Tauba Tauba which again makes an entry to the album. Do I need to say anything about this already-hit number? And then there is Na Batati Tu, a fusion of the classical music and contemporary soft rock. The song again proves that there is no match to Kailash Kher’s vocals.
As we come to the end, words become really insignificant to express one’s adulation of the path-breaking music of the album. For many, the songs may sound absurd, but shouldn’t the newage cinema offer different music from the quintessential Bollywood stuff? The dynamic director Dibakar impresses us as a lyricist.
A great round of applause for the team of ‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’.
