Music Review: 'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken...'
The film's wit gets across through its experimental and amusing music composed by the talented Amit Trivedi, with seven original tracks penned by Shellee.
The first song in the film's soundtrack is "Kiklikalerdi", which takes inspiration from a traditional Punjabi game played by children.
Amit Trivedi brilliantly transforms it by using modern sounds with flute and 'dhol'. Yo Yo Honey Singh makes the track more entertaining with his vocals and good support from Pinky Maidasani and Trivedi.
The lyrics -- a mix of Punjabi and Hindi -- are simple, humorous and one can relate to them. There is also a Punjabi version of the song for puritans. Both are equally good for one to sit back and enjoy.
Next is "Motorwada", a satirical take on the rich and the famous, sung by Trivedi and Tochi Raina. The song takes off slowly with elements of rap. But what you enjoy most are the crude lyrics and Raina's Haryanvi-style singing.
Then follows the title track -- a soothing Punjabi duet by Shahid Mallaya and Harshdeep Kaur -- exploring the chemistry between a couple.
The lyrics as well as the music are minimalistic which work in favour of the song. There is also good use of harmonium and dhol.
The playlist continues with "Luni Hasi" with two versions -- one sung by Harshdeep Kaur and the other by Devender Singh.
The female version is slow with more focus on the singer's traditional voice.
However, the arrangement involving electronic sounds is praiseworthy since it does not dilute the vocals.
The male version is equally inducing although a bit quick.
"Makkhan Malai" may not be the finest track here but keeping in mind the film's humorous theme, one lets it pass. It has been sung by Dilbahar and Renu Jagotro and their effort is modest.
"Farukha Badi" is folksy and starts with a group of women singing and having a good time. Singer Labh Janjua then takes the centre stage and its Punjabi all the way from there on.
Trivedi has kept it simple with traditional instruments and bit of harmonium. One starts enjoying the track after listening for a couple of times.
Last in the ensemble is the "Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana theme" which is more than just an instrumental track.
It would not be wrong to call it the best among the lot because of 'rabab' played by Tapas Roy is spell-binding.
Overall, after the musical success of 'Dev D', 'Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu', 'Ishaqzaade', 'Aiyyaa' and 'English Vinglish', it is another victory for composer Amit Trivedi.
