Every now and then, you come across an album which makes you wonder- where did this film come from? Sparks is one such film which is all set to hit theatres this Friday. The music of the film has been released less than a week before its theatrical release. Composers Nitin Arora and Sony Chandy, who prefer using the stylized pseudonym Nitz ‘N’ Sony, have composed three out of the five songs in this album and seasoned composers like Monty Sharma and Lalit Pandit have just a song each to their credit. Nitz ‘N’ Sony have earlier composed for films like ‘Swami’ and ‘Money Hai Toh Honey Hai’ and their compositions in both these films were anything but impressive. With the film promising to be an edge of the seat romantic thriller, let’s figure out whether the music manages to ignite some spark in people’s consciousness and propels them to come to the theatres to watch the film this Friday.

The album, thankfully, begins on a fairly good note with ‘Ishq Da Virus Lagaya Dil Ke Software Mein’ . This Lalit Pandit composed number, which has managed some good visibility for itself on air, is sufficiently catchy. The lyrics are a mix of Punjabi and Hindi words, which as the title of the song suggest are frivolous and add to the fun quotient of the peppy tune. The lyrics are the kind that Kumaar specializes in but it’s Sameer who has been credited as the lyricist there.

Crass lyrics, a forgettable tune and dated arrangements- that pretty much sums up ‘Meri Jawaani Sode Ki Botal’ . The video of the dance number features actress Daisy Shah of ‘Jai Ho’ fame but that’s unlikely to bring any good to this horrendous song. Naresh Gupta, who happens to be one of the producers of the film, writes some crude lines that will make your stomach churn in disgust.

The R.D Burman classic ‘Chunari Sambhal Gori’ from the film ‘Baharon Ke Sapne’ has been remixed as 'Pallu Sambhal Gori Sarak Jayere Jayere' . I can almost imagine R.D Burman turn in his grave after seeing what Nitz ‘N’ Sony have done with his composition. Even the presence of stalwarts like Bappi Lahiri and Usha Uthup fails to lift the song. The lyrics, which apart from Hindi, has phrases in different languages, are terrible and do more harm than good. The rap portions by Bob irritate.

Finally, there is some respite in the form of ‘Kuch Lab Pe Hai Kuch Dil Mein Hai’ , a romantic number sung by Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal. The song is not great by any stretch of imagination but, unlike the last couple of songs, does not hurt your ears. Although Nitz ‘N’ Sony are credited as the composers for the song, it sounds like something Jatin Lalit would compose on a bad day. The song is far from memorable but makes for a decent hear nevertheless.


‘Khwabon Mein Dekhi Thi Jo Angdaiyan’ ends the album on a very bitter note as the song turns out be an agonizing affair. What actually surprises is the fact that Mohammed Irfan who is known for his soulful renditions is completely out of form here. Right from the voice modulations to his expressions, nothing seems right. Maybe the tuneless number dampened his spirits enough for him to sleepwalk through the song. The song sounds like a poorly remixed version of a bad song from the 90s.

Spark ignites some spark with the first song in the album but flickers soon after.
