Love Sex Aur Dhokha – A Belated Review


Call it an after effect of watching the movie, LSD has been dominating my playlist for the last two days. As a result I decided to pen down my tuppence worth on the soundtrack despite the delay. Going in descending order of preference, first up would be the title track, arranged brilliantly by Sneha Khanwalkar and sung even more superbly by Kailash Kher (I always love it when they make fast songs in raag Sivaranjani!). The whodunit sort of orchestration with the screams peppered all over the song do a perfect job of conveying the theme of the movie . Remix follows suit, just adding a few electronic tweaks here and there. Next up is the risque I Can’t Hold It, rendered perfectly by the MD herself. The combo of folksy arrangement and the Hinglish lyrics work very well in giving the song a totally absurd angle.
Mohabbat Bollywood Style sung by Nihira Joshi and Amay Date is a rib-tickling caricature of the trademark Yash Raj kind of music, and makes for excellent time pass especially if you were to draw a comparison with the various originals that are being mocked at. Tainu TV Per Wekhya is better watched than listened to, Kailash looking funny and cute in his pink heart-shaped goggles and all! Tu Gandi, once again sung by Kailash, is the only middling composition in the lot, and while I totally appreciate Dibakar Banerjee‘s enthusiasm in doubling up as a composer as well, it is better that he leaves the composing to more able hands like those of Sneha.
LSD’s soundtrack is surely no DevD, and is definitely a notch lower that Sneha Khanwalkar’s score for OLLO, but is impressive nevertheless for its variety and originality. And having seen the movie, I feel this score is just fine. I am told that Sneha is working with Anurag Kashyap next. Going by her compositions so far, that will be quite something!
