Directed by Pradeep Sarkar and produced under the Chopra banner, Lafangey Parindey could well turn out to be a casting coup with Neil Nitin Mukesh paired up with Deepika Padukone. The film is anticipated to be a racy ride, but sadly, the music – by R. Anandh – disappoints.
Sung by Ronit Sarkar, the title track, Lafangey Parindey is a very mediocre beginning to the album. There’s some ‘dhingda, dhingda’ part of it that made me laugh out loudly, it comes right in between of the fast, fusion music and sounds extremely stupid.
Mohit Chauhan is good behind the vocals of Man Lafanga. But even he fails to infuse enough life into another okay number. Moving on to another okay number, Dhatad Tatad is an attempt to create something fancy and fast, but ends up being a track that won’t get a second listen from anyone.
The obligatory romantic number of this album is Nain Parindey. Sung by Shilpa Rao, the number has a good soulful tune, nice lyrics and a decent sound to it. Nain Parindey is definitely the best track of this movie.
Keeping in line with the movie and music genre, the last two tracks are fast-paced numbers – Rang Daalein and Born To Fly (instrumental). And keeping in line with the rest of the album, both are pretty ordinary as well.
The music of Lafangey Parindey is just about okay. I hope the movie turns out to be better.
