Love Story 2050
Music: Anu Malik
Lyrics: Javed Akhtar
Singers: Shaan, KK, Kunal Ganjawala, Alka Yagnik, Alisha Chinoy
Rating: ***

You can literally imagine the robots dancing when the song Milo Na Milo begins. The song takes off with the conversation between a couple that prepares you for the magic ahead. The male voice is in search of love and the female voice playfully explains that - Hamari duniya mein pyaar vyaar nahi hota.

The song sounds a little videogamish, but music director Anu Malik makes it a point to include those Bollywood-friendly tunes that truly enchant the listener. Shaan goes with the flow of the song and doesn't disappoint us at all. In total, it's a groovy number that will have the youth dancing to its tune.

Meelon Ka takes you into a dream world that reinforces the power of love and emotions. Javed's profound lyrics and KK's hearty rendition set the perfect mood. Alka Yagnik's voice is considered the best for soft romantic songs and she has done justice to this song as well. The song is sure to be a chartbuster.

The title track Love Story, sung by Shaan, however, does not have that magical appeal as compared to other songs of the album. Sach Kehna sounds like a speedy version of Milo Na Milo, but it has some good beats and a lot of energy that may drive youth to burn the dance floor for a while. Kunal's forte may lie in slow and deep songs, but he doesn't fail to impress in this peppy number.

Mausam Achanak Badla is again a melodious song that reminds us of the song Agar Main Kahoon from the film Lakshya. The soulful rendition by Alka Yagnik and Shaan will please people from all generations. The song has a fresh feeling of the spring season that can probably lift your mood at all times.

Aa Gaya Hun Main starts with another futuristic kind of tune that reminds us that the film is a science fiction. The tune reappears in between the various layers of the song. Anu Malik has also tried out a few experiments that hamper the rhythm of the song. The essence of the song lies in Indian classical tunes combined with western beats. Though it appeals to the ears, the song doesn't sound creatively original in totality.

To be fair, Anu Malik has tried to compose out-of-the box tunes, keeping in view the timeframe of the film. As far as 'originality quotient' is concerned, he scores highly in this one. A must-have album in your music collection.
