With the name Vishal Dadlani flashing on the cards as the lead singer of the opening 'Jab Mila Tu', one gets the feeling that the composer is fast becoming a prolific singer as well. Is that a reason to complain? Not at all if the end result of 'Jab Mila Tu' is any indication. A young and happening track which has the potential to get popular amongst the campus crowds, this Anvita Dutt track belongs to the kind of soundtrack that goes along with many a Hollywood romcom. A sweet sounding rhythmic track, it does touch upon the Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy zone, especially the kind of music that was heard in Wake Up Sid.
The biggest positive about the music of IHLS is the uniformity that it has from start till the finish. There are no major ups or downs as well as no striking highlights or lowlights. What works is the fact that the album has a constant theme to it which remains within boundaries without meandering into different directions. For those who love to hear those youthful melodious tracks composed by Vishal-Shekhar, I Hate Luv Storys is the one for them.
