Soundtrack Movie Review

 Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive
Soundtrack doesn’t work consistently because it’s amateurishly directed, and because even those scenes of Raunak’s debauchery are so tackily filmed. Even if you survive this film’s every other flaw, chances are you’ll be exhausted by those long, hallucinatory interactions between Raunak and his alter-ego that manifests itself as a clown.I’m going with two out of five for Soundtrack. Somewhere in this tiring film is a promising idea that hasn’t been fully exploited.

Very well shot drama with touches of black humor, director Neerav Ghosh deserves immense praise for handling a complex story with amazing maturity. The story is attention-grabbing -- it traces his alcohol, drug and s**-fuelled meteoric rise, as he battles his internal demons and a damaging handicap -- and I must add that the film has a strong melodramatic theme with some terrific moments that stay with you. On the whole, SOUNDTRACK captivates you with a story that talks of the triumph of the human spirit. An inspiring film, a human story, a relatable and credible journey with an atypical, feel-good conclusion, SOUNDTRACK is not to be missed.

Kudos to both filmmaker Neerav Ghosh and actor Rajeev Khandelwal for creating a completely authentic Indian idiom in Soundtrack which holds up a glitzy, yet dark mirror to the Mumbai rock scene. Well acted, well narrated and with loads of great music (Midival Punditz), Soundtrack is cinema with a soul. Tip Off: Must for music makers and movie-buffs who don't want all the films to be breathless tales of revenge and gore or riotous romance.

Debutant director Neerav Ghosh, with incredible support from his leading man Rajeev Khandelwal, creates an engrossing defence of anti-hedonism. Yup, Soundtrack gets it right. In telling the story of a man who stops hearing the world outside to finally start hearing his own inner voice, the film's strong sense of drama and redemption are comparable with the cinema of Sanjay Leela Bhansali.Soundtrack is a soul-stirring tale of a musician's voyage into deafening hedonism and a quiet redemption.

By and large, Soundtrack remains doggedly faithful to its source material and in such a scenario it becomes difficult to credit director Neerav Ghosh for everythingHad Soundtrack been as good if it wasn't adapted from It's All Gone Pete Tong? Another major setback for Soundtrack is that Raunak appears to be a minor speck in his contribution to music and that weakens the effect of a story which grandly projects him as a hero with handicap. Its impact would have been much stronger had the inspiration been Beethoven himself or other iconic figure in the musical history. If you overlook that fact, on its own, Soundtrack is a watchable film, with able support from its cast and if Ghosh is to be credited for anything, let it be said that he has an eye for his material and knows where to look.

. The first half seems obsessed with close-up shots of alcohol, drugs, smoke and s**.The tone of the film suddenly changes in the second half when the narrative turns more soft and sober, as Raunak goes on a self-rehabilitation drive, shunning all addiction. But beyond the somber shade and his chemistry with costars, the narrative isn't able to create as much contrast between the first half and the second that would have resulted in relating and feeling for the protagonist's plight better. Soundtrack works to a big extent because of the persuasive performance of its protagonist played by Rajeev Khandelwal.While it had potential to be a rocking film, Soundtrack, at least, turns out to be sound cinema. Worth giving an ear (and eye) too!

The first half is full of excesses to the point of being repulsive.It is the second part that balances out the tumultuous first.Soha is first rate. I mean this is not a movie any heroine would do. It's only the bold who will experiment with such technically difficult roles. It's hard-hitting and creatively presented. It would be tough to get in the audience (read commercial success), but those creatively inclined should definitely watch this flick.

Soundtrack is a film by a debutant filmmaker isn’t just rich in content but in execution too. The crisp screenplay doesn’t let your eyeballs move off the screen even for a second. The transition from the party to tragic mood and then, to some soothing light moments, with no loopholes, makes Soundtrack, one of the flawless films ever made. Extremely appealing storyline, flawless performances, first time yet brilliant direction are the strengths of the film. Music below expectations, slightly slow-paced initial second half, are the weaknesses. Overall, if you have a taste for meaningful, juicy cinema, Soundtrack is a must watch.

`Soundtrack’ gives us a story (based on a Canadian film, which fact is dutifully part of the end credits) which feels like it is about something : such a relief from the spate of nothing movies that have been infesting our theatres for a while now, even if the result is mixed. ‘Soundtrack’ starts off on a high promising note, and then slides into a middle where everything gets muddled, and excessive.

  1. film achi ho sakti hai kyuki taran adarsh ne dekhi nahi n review nahi diya hai

  2. taran adarsh is the most useless critic ...baaki sab at least kuchh toh sensible hain ....

    bakwaas muvi ko 4/5 deta hai aur achhi movie ko 2 deta hai ...

    why is taran the only odd-one-out here and always ??

    i think we shd stop listening to this joker of a critic

    upar se isska review top pe laga dete hain

    it's a request to the site authorities that they shud stop posting taran's reviews on this prestigious site

    he is completely useless guy

    i can also bet that he hates srk and he will give 3 stars to ra1 and don2

  3. let us meet the MALLU KINGS OF BOLLYWOOD the actors who have copied south indian films ,

    i pity on these actors

    mallu king salman khan _wanted ready bodyguard

    ajay- singham



    i feel like spitting and shitting in their mouth

  4. taran adarsh is the worst crtic but he's a more of a trade analyst... consider his reviews because that gives the exact perfect prediction abt the business the film does... but its total non sense verdict thuogh...

  5. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

  6. Achchhi film ko 2 star de diye taran adarsh ne to ab baaki ko to 4 dene hi honge

  7. agar paisa mile to taran adarsh aajkal bina dekehe hi achchhi rating de dete hain varna kharab, see example of MAUSAM

  8. @Anonymous agar salman aamir ajay john south films ki remake bana rahe hain toh srk bhi amitabh ji ki remakes hi bana raha hai aur ek se ek ghatiya aur masala film. why don't u spit n shit in his mouth. bloody hypocrite....

  9. srk ne amitabh ki ek don ki remake hi ki thi n t8 was a big hit.
    agar srk ki don achi na hoti toh saath me release hui salman ki ghatiya janeman hit nahi hote kya stupid.

  10. sahi hai yaar srk ne ek remake banayi aur woh bhi achi.
    Yeh lallu(sallu) khan , gadhey tirchi gardan(ajay devgan) ki toh har film south ki ghatiya copy hi hoti hai

  11. ajay devgan had good films only along witg prakash jha n rajkumar santoshi n 1 film with mahesh bhatt 'zakhm '
    unless his all more than 100 films r rubbish.
    And he should go along with these 2 directors n had to leave such rubbish 'comedy n action' films along with rohit shetty and any other stupid director

  12. for everyone here against ajay........he is one of few bollywood actor who has got national award twice....where is srk or sallu in that list......... bt yes all have their all zonors....sallu is waste

  13. haan main bhi yehi keh raha hoon ki ajay ko ache directors k saath achi film banani chahiye na ki rohit shetty n david dhawan etc k saath aisi bakwas movies.

  14. It is finest movie I have ever seen. So inspirational & new concept.

  15. You should know that Taran Adarsh is anways "odd" man out here.. ;)

    My vote for the most useless movie critic goes to Nikhat Kazmi.. As as per her every movie is worth watching at least once. I hardly see her rating for even the most pathetic movie below 3 star.. she simply takes money to promote any damn movie..! totally useless!

  16. good movie. simply brilliant. movie makers who made bodyguard, ready, should learn from soundtrack how to make a movie. out indian public is sick! retarded! if a big star, will go for any movie. and whatever shit they spit become successful. go n watch movies like this.
