Luv U Soniyo: Music Review

Music Director: Vipin Patwa
Starring: Neha Hinge, Tanuj Virwani 

Prepare to be romanced, well at least in a cheesy way. What else can a movie called Luv U Soniyo promise? The soundtrack is kind of a corny joyride, but nevertheless a ride. This soundtrack combines Mexican delights with the Indian beats. Be prepared for disaster!

Luv U Soniyo starts with one of my favorite singers, K.K, with Tumsa Nahin Hai Koi. The piano puts a beautiful spin on the song, but this song is really like any empowering romance song. K.K's soft vocals rise almost unbearably when he almost screams "Tums Nahin Hai Koi". Anwesha Sarkar's voice comes in towards the later and softens the song a little. Average. 2.5/5

Pyar Tera by Sonu Nigam has a sweet melody complete with piano like the previous song. It almost sounds like it has been pulled out of a nineties soundtrack. There is a corny English part which talks about how great love is. Just no. 2/5

Pyar Tera is done again in Love U Soniyo in Pyar Tera (Unplugged) sung again by Sonu Nigam, This one is a definite improvement on the original. The melody is kept nice and pure, but it still sounds nineties. 3/5

Luv U Soniyo is our title track by Remo Fernandez. This is where we first see our Mexican flavor. This song captures Mexico in a very annoying way, it almost sounds jarring. We hear phrases and words like, pencil, half a dil, bale bale, bhangra bhangra. This song is trying to do too much, and comes across as irritating 2/5

Luv U Soniyo - Neha Hinge and Tanju Virwani
Eww, you got something  nastaaay
on your back. 
Chalo Chalte Hai Mexico is another Mexican tinged song sung by our sweet Shaan. This a softer selection, and thankfully sounds nothing like our title track. It comes across as endearing, but the English pieces "Can't you see you belong to me" spoil it. Still one of the better songs. 3/5

Sunidhi Chauhan, Sonu Nigam, and Joy come together for Youre My Valentine. If you have a thinking close to mine, you are already cringing at this title. This is the ultimate cheesy number of the soundtrack. Its so contrived and sounds like a thousand other songs. It is a mix of romance,dance, and pure cheesiness, especially when they say "Yo-o-u A-rrr-eee My Val-ent-iiiine". 2/5

Palko Hai Phool has the duo of Shreya Ghoshal and Shaan. This song mentions Valentines Day again. From the beat to the lyrics this song is a definite no. Too much half-baked romance. 2.5/5

Love You Soniyo (Mashup) is horrible. Most mashup songs never work. Its just an unsatisfying combination of the entire soundtrack. Don't listen. 0/5

Love You Soniyo has the power to make you cringe at its cheesy romantic songs. The compositions are like leftover compositions of the 90's and early 2000's. Stay away from this one!

My Picks If I had to Choose:  Chalo Chale Mexico, Pyar Tera (Unplugged)

Was this soundtrack that bad as I'm making it seem? You tell me!
