Mumbai, March 17 (IANS) Filmmaker Vikram Bhatt’s upcoming Bollywood urban thriller “Love Games” will have a complete English soundtrack.
While a lot of films have songs with Hinglish — mix of Hindi and English — lyrics, Bhatt has as many as seven soundtracks in English. Bhatt has also turned lyricist with the film and all the English tracks have been penned by him.
Talking about it, he said: “It’s the first time that any Indian film has a complete English OST. So there are seven English tracks apart from five Hindi songs. Vishesh Films has a long history of firsts. So yes, this is another first added to the list.”
All the English numbers are background tracks.
“We felt that there was a need for it as English or rather ‘Hinglish’ is the mode of communication for most of the youth today. And naturally it is something the youth can easily relate to. So we are trying to talk to the youth in a language they can connect with,” Bhatt added.
The trailer and the songs of the film that stars Patralekha, Gaurav Arora and Tara Alisha Berry have already been grabbing eyeballs for its bold content and the makers hope that the other soon-to-release songs too will climb up the charts rapidly.
