Musical notes: Luck By Chance

Farhan Akhtar surely has a huge fan following just after one movie. So was the case after his directorial debut, Dil Chahta hai, too. Good news for Farhan's fans was that his next movie Luck by Chace. Now, the bad one is that the guy doesn't get to sing a single song in the movie. :(

Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy are the experimenting guys again as they have always been. And though, the results of CC2C music are still awaited (not up to the S-E-L standards I guess), their next, Luck By Chance generates new hopes with the credits of singers itself.

There is Shankar Mahadevan singing a lot. Two songs, Sapnon se bhare naina, and O rahi re are sung by Shankar alone. And there is a lot more new. The album has 6 songs and a remix. Out of six, three songs bear Shankar's name. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy also give a chance to the Indian Idol runner-up Amit Paul who has sung a song Pyaar ki Daastan with Mahalaxmi Iyer.

And then, another surprise is that for the first time, two songs bear the name of Loy Mendonsa as he does a song 'Baawre' with Shankar and another, 'Yeh Zindagi Bhi' with Shekhar. Yes, Shekhar, who hardly ever gave more than background vocals until Bachna ae Haseeno, has been called up by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy to sing a song, taking the collaboration between the composer duo and trio (Vishal-Shekhar and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy) a step further.

One song, Yeh aaj kya ho gaya is sung by Sunidhi Chauhan as a solo which is a small number of almost 3 and half minutes.

In short, Luck By Chance looks like a promising album, and I hope we'll find some long lasting songs by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Javed Akhtar.
