March 29, 2010 (Sampurn Wire):The question that comes to mind on picking up this album – ‘Now what exactly is the kind of soundtrack which would be there in the offering from an album which has a title like ‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’?’ However, this is where one remembers that one had similar questions from Dibakar’s first two films ‘Khosla Ka Ghosla’ and ‘Oye Lucky Lucky Oye’ as well. While the title song of the latter became a rage, ‘Chak De Phatte’ from the former is being played on till date. No wonder, one begins to expect something good from this Sneha Khanwalkar soundtrack as well which has lyrics by Banerjee himself.

There is no surprise in store at the very beginning with ‘LSD Title Track’ marking a tremendous kick start to the album. If you have been hooked to music channels for last three weeks, it is near impossible that you would have missed out on the eye catchy music video which has been made around this Kailash Kher track. An instantly catchy number that sets your feet tapping right from the word Go, it makes one remember the times from the era gone by when the word ‘sexy’ had to be erased and replaced with ‘baby’ in the Karisma Kapoor dance number ‘Sexy Sexy Sexy Mujhe Log Bole’ (Khuddaar). How times have changed, isn’t it?

It’s time for some more ‘Oye Lucky Lucky Oye’ mood and setting with Kailash Kher getting the Punjabi mood on with ‘Tainu TV Per Wekhya’. A situational track which didn’t really see much publicity coming it’s way, ‘Tainu TV…’ talks a dig on entertainment channels, media, TRPs etc. etc. The number that follows next, ‘I Can’t Hold It’, may seem like a Western dance/seductive number from the title. However, that’s not the case to be as instead, a listener is transported to Rajasthani milieu with the song taking a parody route. Crooned by Sneha, ‘I Can’t Hold It’ has a strange mix of sounds and is more comic rather than seductive in it’s presentation.

However, what is not really strange is ‘Mohabbat Bollywood Style’ which is presented as a tribiute to the maker of mushy romantic family entertainers Aditya Chopra. Everything from the composition to lyrics to rendition by Nihira Joshi and Amey Date is focused on one single aspect – Come up with a track which definitely pays homage to the genre enriched by the Chopras but in the meanwhile also bring in a parody touch to the overall composition. This is pretty much visible in the way violins, dhol beats, chorus effect and the overall writing, singing and composing style come into play.

The song that follows is strange though because just like ‘I Can’t Hold It’, even ‘Tu Gandi’ is an item number though presented differently from the songs belonging to its genre. Yet another Kailash Kher solo, it is pretty much a drag and while at places it does come close to many a Feroz Khan numbers that one evidenced in the 70s, the final effect just doesn’t bear similar charm. The album concludes with a couple of bonus tracks from Kailash Kher’s private album ‘Kailasa’ – ‘Na Batati Tu’ and ‘Tauba Tauba’.

Overall, though ‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’ doesn’t cover a distance similar to that of ‘Oye Lucky Lucky Oye’, it has a much bigger single in the form of the title track ‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’ which makes all the difference.
