Soundtrack Movie Review – Uninspiring!

Soundtrack Movie Review – Uninspiring!

Neerav Ghosh’s Soundtrack is an official adaptation of the Canadian film ‘It’s All Gone Peter Tong’. The director makes use of footage from real-life technicians like DJ Aqeel, Anu Malik and Anurag Kashyap along with fictional characters to trace the life of DJ Raunak Kaul (Rajeev Khandelwal).

Story of Soundtrack:
Raunak Kaul is intrinsically humble and helpful by nature, when he sees a beggar who has exceptional talent for singing, he takes note of him and makes him sing for his album. DJ Raunak begins as a DJ at the Tango Charlie Club and this is the place where he happens to meet an agent by the name of Charlie who later initiates him into the world of drugs, alcohol, wild parties and women.

Once he chooses the wrong path, Raunak finds that his real talent has drifted away, his quality of music begins to wane and he is actually booed out by an angry club crowd. Raunak who once nursed an ambitious of being famous, wonders if he will die unsung like his father. The DJ is then diagnosed with loss of hearing in one ear, and a partial loss in the other. This makes him stay away from sounds and music.

Now begins a therapeutic phase in his life, when Raunak decides to live a frugal life. He happens to meet a lip reading instructor Gauri (Soha Ali Khan) who teaches him how to lip read. Raunak focuses on his work and comes up with an album in an absolute state of deafness.

What works for Soundtrack:
The performance of Rajeev Khandelwal, Soha Ali Khan and the director’s eye for authenticity.

What does not work for Soundtrack:
Well, we cannot say that these things do not work for the film but one cannot really come up with a fair review and credit to the film because the Indianized version is quite similar to the source without any personal touch that could distinguish this remake from the original.

Another thing is that the music of the film Soundtrack is weak; not a good thing considering it is a ‘musical’ film.

Performances in Soundtrack:
Rajeev Khandelwal can be depended upon to carry a film on his shoulders and he does a great job in this one as well. Soha Ali Khan has a tight, compact role and she does her role competently. Mohan Kapoor is apt for his character and it is refreshing to see him in a meaty role after a long time.

Conclusion:

Soundtrack remains an interesting watch for a few strains

Ratings: **1/2 (Above average)
