There are many few movies that surprise audiences with something that they would never expect and Soundtrack is one such movie that can surprise the audience with its triumph element that would make people feel in love. Directed by Neerav Ghosh, Soundtrack stars Rajeev Khandelwal, Soha Ali Khan, Mrinalini Sharma, Mohan Kapoor, Anurag Kashyap, and Yateen Karyekar.
The movie begins with immensely talented DJ and musician Raunak (Rajeev) who is having the best time of his life making and mixing music which can make people dance all the time. However, Raunak gets addicted to drugs and alcohol which backfires on him as he gradually begins to lose his hearing capability. Since his profession is all about hearing the right music he goes into depression but while he is going through his depression of being deaf he meets Gauri (Soha) who is deaf by birth. Soha provides Raunak with some affection and inspiration to get back into his regular life inspite of being deaf and gradually Raunak decides to fight back his deafness problem and come out of it successfully.
On performance level, Rajeev Khandelwal is very convincing and he manages to pull his character with great determination. Believe it or not, but Rajeev is one of the rare TV personalities who have tried different roles in different movies and has been successful. He was on fire in Aamir and then he did splendid job in Shaitan as well. This time Rajeev plays Raunak who goes through high phase in life but then there are emotional lows and depression and then back again in the same old dominating spirit. Soha Ali Khan is a perfect match for Rajeev in this movie and she delivers her performance without any doubt. She has proved that if better roles are provided she can do much better than any leading actresses in the country. Mrinalini Sharma is good but she really has nothing to display, complete waste. Mohan Kapur does well in his performance and the rest of the cast is decent as well. Technically, the movie is great and the cinematography by Anshuman Mahaley is brilliant. The music by so many music directors together is impressive when you watch it with the movie but apart from that there is nothing much in the music category. The story and direction by Neerav Ghosh is brilliant but the credit for the story cannot be given to the director because the movie is a remake of Its All Gone Pete Tong.
To conclude, Soundtrack is not as bad as it seems. If you are looking for something different and innovative then this movie is not going to disappoint you at all. The movie showcases about the increasing party culture and the use of drugs at such places. However, the main story is about the victory of human spirit and determination that is bigger than any challenge in the world.
