Opinion Poll: Are you going to see Kapoor & Sons this week?

Ah, there used to be a time when a Dharma production's film could be counted on to have stellar music, but Karan Johar's latest production, "Kapoor & Sons", fails to leave a permanent lasting impression. The problem with having so many musical chefs in the proverbial musical pot is that there is no musical continuity between the songs on the soundtrack. The listener basically jumps from song to song, and it feels like you are having pretty tasty but not great slice of pizza. The soundtrack follows the typical pattern that we see in most films. Throw in some fairly familiar dance tracks that are just different enough to be a hit on the charts, and then some standard soft pop romantic numbers with low key rock type vocals. "Kar Gayi Chulli" hits all the right dance notes. Based on Badshah and Fazilpuria's "Chull", this bolly version features vocals by Sukriti and Neha Kakkar. It's catchy and a foot stomper with nonsensical lyrics. "Bolna" by Arijit Singh and Asees Kaur is the type of slow romantic number that will be played in the background of all ZEE TV soap opera serials as the two main leads give each other hot, but safe for family romantic looks. It's a cool track, but I can't shake the feeling I've heard it before. "Buddhu Sa Mann" carries the same been there done that feel, though Armaan Mallik does his best K.K. impersonation. ,"Saathi Rey" is that slow tempo rock song that is moving, with some great vocals by Arko, but again, the track is restricted by the formulaic melody. Finally, we have "Let's Nacho" which is a remake of Nucleya and Benny Dayal's "Tamil Fever". It gets the foot tapping, but again is a track that is literally built on the foundations of a previous song. On the whole "Kapoor & Sons" has a totally nonobtrusive soundtrack that will not stay on listener's minds for a long time, but is immediately likeable only to be forgotten when the next soundtrack comes along. You'll have fun with it, just don't expect anything scintillating. Now, if you don't mind, I'm going back to my so-so mediocre, but tasty slice of pizza.
