Composer Sudip Banerjee lifts the spirits as he holds the mike and sings "Dheere Dheere" in soft and somber mode. It comes as above average soundtrack where composer tries to fit into the shoes of conventional playback singer. He sings the heartfelt sentiments of a lover when he confronts his lady love with finely delivered lyrics in poetic phrases. "Dheere Dheere" will probably be a signature soundtrack and will be of great significance in the film. The number proves to be a promising start to low profile film album and pictures out new composer Sudip Banerjee in the offering.
ZINDAGI: Shaan's voice is pure delight to hear as he sings out the perfect blend of his vocal flair and richly nurtured lyrics in lovable solo ballad "Zindagi". The soft and soothing number brings memories of Shaan's single hit "Tanha Dil" (Album - "Tanha Dil") and enthralls with delight. This comes out as the best soundtrack and probably will have many takers from pop genre who crave for soulful ballads. The song has mysticism of natural delights with whistling sounds and mouth organ notes adding flair of romanticism to it. Sudip Banerjee's music still needs better gripping on soft and sentimental to match the quality of traditional music composer but still it entertains. Shaan is pure gem in such soundtracks and has been a reliable campaigner in soft and sentimental ballads. This soulful rendition is pure melody and deserves worth-a-hear for its rich lyrical content. "Zindagi" comes as the biggest surprise in this low promoted album and reappears in a sad version in the voice of Sudip Banerjee.
"Zindagi" is another singing delight where Sudip Banerjee emotes out sad and morose sentiments in pensive mood. The slow and sluggish moving orchestration moves in tandem with vocals giving it fine picturesque of depressed emotions. Sudip Banerjee sings this well as compared to the solo track "Dheere Dheere" with fine set of lyrics that go well with the situation.
RUTHO NAA : It's Sudip Banerjee once again with mike and this time he comes with a losing preposition in the form of the soundtrack "Rutho Naa". The monotonously compiled beats that sound boring and stale form the backdrop of this song. Sudip Banerjee's unimpressive vocals fail to bind listeners and it comes with least possible impact. Even the lyrics fail to attract and sound complete non-starter. If the number was assigned to conventional singer with improvised musical arrangements, then it might have created difference but this comes as a big disappointment.
KYUN HO KHAFA : Sensuous vibes strike and it comes in the seductive vocals of Shreya Ghoshal in the sensuous soundtrack "Kyun Ho Khafa". It belongs to the genre of the song that has been choreographed on second female lead who seduces hero with her raunchy moves. Sudip Banerjee's music starts with impressive saxophone notes but falters thereafter with lethargic paced music and comes with loud and garish beats that fail to attract. Shreya Ghoshal proves unfit in this type of numbers and it would have been better if Sunidhi Chauhan or Alisha Chinai had been employed for such numbers.
MOULA : "Moula" belongs to Sufi pop genre music that has been making waves in recent times. The number caters to the genre who compliments love struck emotions garnished in Sufi pop style . With impressive Kailash Kher holding mike it comes out as winner. After "Zindagi", this number sounds contemporary with above average musical credentials that may encourage audio sales. The heart warming lyrics are dedicated to God and come with beautifully penned phrases that signify the pleasures, pain and suffering of the beleaguered lover. Kailash Kher proves to be the best choice for Sufi pop style number and he delivers it with panache.
THEME MUSIC : The album concludes with the mixed instrumental work of signature tunes of the soundtracks. Nimit and Daniel render entertaining finale to the album by rehashing the instrumental beats of "Rutho Naa" and "Zindagi" with impressive female chorus in the background. The whistling sounds, mouth organ notes, guitar stings and violin chorus collage well to create exciting musical work.
'With Luv Tumhara' provides some moments of musical entertainment with numbers like "Dheere Dheere", "Moula" and "Zindagi". New music composer Sudip Banerjee shows signs of naivety at many places and unlike Pritam or Shantanu Moitra fails to create his own style. The low promotion and average musical strength of the album will prove a big obstacle in the album's success. Overall, it has moments of delight as compared to other low budget entertainers but will find difficult to survive.
