The name Suneel Darshan, director of hit musicals like JAANWAR, EK RISHTA - THE BOND OF LOVE etc is enough to look forward to some melodious chartbusting and massy compositions from a host of composers like Meet Bros Anjaan, along with some inexperienced and fresh names as well. Since KARLE PYAAR KARLE is the launch pad of Suneel Drashan's handsome son, Shiv Darshan, and is a love story, one expects some good music that is so very important for the film to make a mark at the box office. So let's check out whether our expectations are met.
Three promising young guns of the music world, Benny Dayal, Palak Muchal and Monali Thakur get together albeit for a disappointing cause, the racy title track 'Karle Pyaar Karle'. Continuous synthetic background rhythm and oft heard tune is a letdown.
Some nice South-East Asian (read, Thailand!) rhythm sets tone for a passionate love ballad, 'Teri Sanson Mein' rendered well by Arijit Singh and Palak Muchal. The background music arrangements are nice but once again like the title track this one too seems to be a caught up in a time warp.

Folk based item number 'O Darling' is good parts in fact the 'mukhda', 'O darling tu dhuandaar hai, dil mera dilli, Tu sarkar hai' appears to be chartbuster but the 'antara' is disappointing. Amit Mishra and Shasha Tripathy render the song.
Probably the best song of the album, 'Mutasir
' (meaning impressed in Urdu) is a lovely romantic number sung to perfection by Javed Ali. The lovely background female chorals and nice rhythm and superb 'mukhda
' build up a love ballad that is heartwarming. And hats off to the lyricist for some novel, unique words that aid in the superlative effort.
' is once again caught up in the time a warp with a continuous background rhythm but its Arjit Singh who surprises with his disappointing execution of the sad separation number, as he overdoes the modulation part.
The less said about 'Kurban
' the better. At times it sounds like an average attempt at Punjabi pop, then it changes complexion to a racy remix version of 'Ankhiyan Udeek Diyan
'. Natasha Tah does an average job. CHECK OUT: Shiv Darshan - KARLE PYAAR KARLE is a wholesome entertainer
'Soni Soni Akkha Nu
' can be classified as yet another title track, and although all efforts have been made to make it interesting and foot tapping, but there is something amiss. The artists try to do a Mika but fail in their attempt and one feels that even Mika could not have waved his magic wand here.
Summing up, one feels letdown by the disappointing performance of a whole lot of music composers who fail to deliver even a single memorable or chartbusting track, and all the songs appear to be outdated. In fact 'Mutasir
' and 'O Darling
' turn out to be the best attempts, and young Shiv and Hasleen will have to rely on the strong script and performances to tide over the box office currents when KARLE PYAAR KARLE releases all over on 17th January 2014.
