The songs have been filmed in the most energetic fashion, but at the end…tai-tai fishhh!!!!
The biggest problem with London Dreams is that in a film about music and its lessons in humility, the most crucial musical moments are handled amateurishly, which makes it all look unconvincing.
In a film based on music, Shankar-Ehsan-Loy’s score is a letdown. Khanabadosh and Barso Re are fantastic compositions. But all the other tracks fall flat and fail to rise to the occasion. Even Prasoon Joshi’s lyrics lack the bite.
LONDON DREAMS is about a rock band, about music, about concerts and the music had to be the soul of the film. I think Shankar thought this might be some comedy films doing comedy on stage.
Music was not at all really up to the mark, especially the climax concert numbers. The song that comes, after everything was over was too slow and a rousing number would have made for an apt grand finale.
Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s music perfectly complements the screenplay. No song seems out of place. Here they just strive to rock on once again only with rockaus effect. Why European concert audiences go crazy over the ding dong ditties slow Hindi song of ours? Could they be doing out of sheer shock and dismay? May be…
Honestly speaking if the Music would be good, then atleast half a start would be raised up. But who cares, everybody in the film got their money, it’s I who loosed mine. Please guys, don’t know about European janta’s but I am in a literally shock. Please let me go to the “All the Best” doctors, ‘Laughter is the Best Medicine!’
