The Taapsee Pannu, Tahir Raj Bhasin-starrer has five tracks: Looop Lapeta, Beqaraar (Duet and female version), Nirvana, and Tera Mera. Lasting 18:18 minutes, the songs of this suspense thriller have elements of romance, thrill, and humor in them. The album gets 3.5 stars and here's our detailed review.
Flow with the romantic tune of 'Beqaraar' (duet)
First up is Beqaraar (duet). Santanu Ghatak's composition and lyrics lend a retro feel to the track. Crooned by Ronkini Gupta and Raghav Kaushik, the song will take you on an imaginary ride with your partner. The singers make the best use of emotions effortlessly in this number. Guitar by Mayank Choudhary in the background is a pleasant touch. The song gets 4 stars.
'Tera Mera', 'Beqaraar' (female version) are worth listening
Tera Mera, composed by Rahul Pais and Nariman Khambata - The Jamroom, is a slow and soothing song. Sharvi Yadav's rendition feels western. She is good with both high and low notes. Beqaraar (female version) in Gupta's voice is a mellow track that's ideal for dancing with your lover. It depicts the true feelings of a girl for her beloved. Songs get 3.5 stars.
'Looop Lapeta' has good beats, while 'Nirvana' has funny lyrics
The rest two songs of the album, Nirvana and the title track, have been composed by Sidhant Mago and Mayank Mehra (Mikelal). We will first deal with Looop Lapeta. Snappy beats and rap add appeal to this Jay Anand-Mago crooned number. Meanwhile, lyrics of Nirvana make it stand out of the rest. Its tune is folkish yet jaded. The songs get 3 stars.
On February 4, Pannu's 'Shabaash Mithu' getting released, too
Looop Lapeta has been directed by Aakash Bhatia. It's the official Hindi remake of Run Lola Run. On February 4, another Pannu-starrer will get released, Shabaash Mithu. The film has been helmed by Srijit Mukherji. In the OTT space, a week after Looop Lapeta's release, Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi's Gehraiyaan hits Amazon Prime Video on February 11.
