Posted on: December 30, 2008
The film starring Farhan Akhtar, Konkana Sen and Hrithik Roshan in a special appearance is scheduled to release on Jan 30th, 2009.
Beginning on a lucky note BIG Music, the music brand of Reliance Big Entertainment Ltd will release the music of 'Luck By Chance' this New Years on January 2nd, 2009. With music by contemporary music directors Shankar Ehsaan Loy and lyrics by the legendary lyricist Javed Akhtar to pen down some poignant lyrics, the music of 'Luck By Chance' is sure to touch your musical chords. The film which marks the directorial debut of Zoya Akhtar will hit the theatres on 30th January, 2009.
"I am really kicked with this album. I am an avid listener of music and have an extremely varied taste. I was extremely particular about getting the right sound and the perfect mood for each of the song situations. The film is set in the film industry so we have 2 tracks that are supposed to be part of a Hindi film soundtrack. The process was great fun; we spent 15 days and came up with 6 scratches. These were the final tunes that went into the album. We never redid a single track. They were just perfect for the situations and the mood. It is a very eclectic album with something in it for everyone." says the excited debutant director Zoya Akhtar.
'Luck By Chance' with the seven orchestrated songs gives a mixed flavour from soulful melodies to foot tapping dance numbers. The driver song which will be released with the first look of the film is 'Sapnon Se Bhare Naina'. The song has a touch of Sufi flavour to it and the lyrics depict the aspirational drive of the characters in the film. 'Baawre' is a fast number set in the circus and picturised on Hrithik Roshan. Sung by Shankar Mahadevan and Loy Mendonsa, 'Baawre' also has a remix version which promises to pull you to the dance floor. 'Pyaar Ki Dastaan', a soft track featuring Farhan Akhtar and Isha Sharwani is sure to add a dash of romance to the palette. The fourth song, 'Yeh Aaj Kya Ho Gaya' sung by Sunidhi Chauhan is filmed on Konkana Sen. 'O Rahi Re' with its thoughtful lyrics by Javed Akhtar in Shankar Mahadevanís voice takes you on an internal journey as it concludes the film.
Commenting on making music for this film, producer, Ritesh Sidhwani said, "The experience of creating music for this film has been fascinating and exhilarating...and with a team like Shankar, Ehsaan, Loy and Javed Saheb the ride gets easier and much more fun. Luck by Chance is a take on the Indian film industry and therefore the music had to be distinct and contemporary. I am sure you will enjoy this music more if you have already enjoyed ROCK ON!! by the same music directors".
Produced by BIG Pictures & Excel Productions, the film portrays different characters who come to the city with startling dreams in their eyes to make it big in Bollywood. A struggling actor, an aspiring actress, a successful but superstitious producer with a lucky superstar, add to this a yesteryear Diva and a few more side characters, what you get is a complete Bollywood Masala. 'Luck By Chance' has an interesting star cast of Farhan Akhtar, Juhi Chawla, Konkana Sen, Isha Shervani, Rishi Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia & has Hrithik Roshan in a special appearance.
Kulmeet Makkar, Chief Executive Officer, BIG Music & Home Entertainment says, "We are proud to be associated with few of the most creative minds in the country like Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani and music directors Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. If the success of ROCK ON!!!, is a measure to go by, we are sure that the music of LUCK BY CHANCE will be another impressive addition to our repertoire of great film music. After our experience with Rock On!! both (Excel Entertainment and BIG Music) understand each other very well and there is a comfort in the relationship and the working. We believe in the music and we hope that the audience will love it".
