Music review: Luck by Chance (Hindi – Shankar Ehsaan Loy)

Loy and Shekhar make an unlikely, but very appropriate vocal duo in Yeh zindagi bhi, a super-smooth, feel good track, true to the trio’s musical sensibility, while Baawre’s hectic pacing and folksy lyrics are wonderfully placed. Pyaar ki dastaan bears the SEL stamp, particularly when Mahalakshmi enters the song – despite the likeable feel, it’s the predictability that diminishes the appeal. Ditto with O rahi re! But, Sunidhi rocks in the absolutely delightful Yeh aaj kya ho gaya, while Sapnon se bhare naina, with that ominously groovy sound, is scintillating. Luck by chance’s soundtrack is the musical trio by expectation.
