An Hindi Remake of “Ruthless People”…Yes It’s True…

Bollywood is famous for borrowing from Hollywood. Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega, the Indian remake of the 80s dark comedy Ruthless People, is the latest.

WHILE the Hollywood version featured old timers Danny DeVito and Bette Midler, the Hindi version stars bad boys Fardeen Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Aftab Shivdasani alongside good girls Twinkle Khanna and Sonali Bendre.

With the tag line ‘Pyar Chahiye ya paisa chahiye’ (do you want love or money), the film promises to show exactly how far men are willing to go to obtain both.

Music director Vishal, who previously composed the soundtracks to Kamal Haasan’s Chachi 420, Ram Gopal Varma’s Satya and Gulzar’s Maachis and Hu Tu Tu, returns to work his magic for Love Ke Liye…

The title track opens the album with a bang. Its sassy lyrics and catchy tune make it a likeable number. Udit Narayan and Sunidhi Chauhan pair up and their voices compliment each other and the melody well.

The Latin influenced Rama Rama follows, this time with playback diva Asha Bhosle and youngster Sonu Nigam working together to produce a lively number that makes you want to dance and sing along to it.

Aslam Bhai is a comical track, which centres on comedian Johnny Lever character in the film. It’s amusing lyrics and western rhythm will undoubtedly make it popular amongst the Indian masses that are known to be partial to light-hearted comedy.

Love x Crime = Fun, is an unusual qawalli featuring Farid Sabri, while Dil Mera Dil Hai Akela is a cheeky love song reminiscent of Lou Bega’s Mambo No.5 with it’s endless lists of girls names.

Overall, Love Ke Liya Kuch Bhi Karega is an upbeat soundtrack that will appeal to anyone who is in love and understands it’s irresistible charm and mysterious effects.
