It is official: the next time this reviewer holds a party, he’d be playing Bollywood tunes. And this decision is made after listening to the soundtrack of the latest big-budget glamorized melodrama from director Karan Johar.

Johar, whose other feel-good works include Kuch Kuch Hota Hoi (1998) and Khabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001), has produced another internationally-appealing film telling stories of traditional Indians caught between their own culture and the modern culture. And this spirit is so well-reflected in this 44-minute album; it won’t take an Indian to appreciate the music.

Comprising of a movie trailer, five songs from the film and two remixes; the soundtrack will make you want to replay it over and over again in your player. Even when you do not understand most of the lyrics (which are nicely included in a fold-out poster in the album’s insert) penned by Javed Akhtar – such is the power of music, composed by trio Shankar – Ehsaan – Loy.

The album kicks off with the theme song Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, which means “never say goodbye”. The duet features melancholic piano and strings which exemplify the undying love between two lovers. The vocals are also soothing to listen to. Up next is Mitwa, a very uplifting and encouraging soft-rock tune which features some very enjoyable ethnic drum beats during its chorus. You’d never miss the message of this song, with the female chorus singing “love will find a way” repeatedly during its six-odd minutes duration.

The highlight of any Bollywood movie would be its techno dance tunes. Mixing hypnotizing modern rhythm and traditional North Indian beats, this is exactly the kind of music you’d want to make your party special.

The two party tunes offered in this soundtrack “Where’s The Party Tonight” and “Rock and Roll Soniye” are extremely guilty pleasures that will have you nodding your head to their addictive tempos and tapping your feet to their pulsing rhythms. To complement the immensely enjoyable listening experience, we’d suggest you look up the film clips on the Internet. You’d be awed at the wonderful and elaborate choreography that goes into the dance sequences that accompany these upbeat tunes.

Now, if somebody would teach this reviewer how to dance like those people – that would make him the life at any party.
