Starring: Rajeev Khandelwal, Soha Ali Khan, Yatin Karyekar
Directed by Neerav Ghosh
Rating: ***

An official remake of the Canadian film It’s All Gone Pete Tong, Soundtrack begins sweetly, with images of music in everyday life—the clanking of a can or a mobike’s vroom. We are introduced to the protagonist, music man Raunak Kaul (Rajeev), through piece-to-camera sets from people who’ve their own unique impressions of him. Raunak is a reckless, self-destructive genius in a profligate world of drugs, sex and rock-’n-roll. It’s in these initial portions that the film feels awkward and amateurish, especially in the depiction of Raunak’s hallucinations of Johnny Joker (a nod to the Shweta Shetty song). Things take too long to build up but mercifully fall into place midway, just as Raunak faces a major crisis: losing his ability to hear. Then on, Soundtrack plays out as an inspirational, “triumph of the human spirit” film about confronting a life of silence yet being able to discern a rhythm and create music out of it. Helping Raunak is Gauri (Soha), herself born deaf. Soundtrack breaks new ground in presenting this love story between two differently abled people without any overt pity. It’s endearing, playful and filled with laughter and banter. A heartwarming tale that makes you want to shed your cynicism and believe in love.
