SUMMER 2007, a youth oriented flick about five youngsters brings out a different sounding 'yuppie' musical entertainment. Gourov Dasgupta, the man behind the musical madness of hip-shaking tracks like 'Dus', 'Jaaniye' and 'Maahiye' (DUS KAHANIYAN) makes his first promising appearance as solo composer with some lively and upbeat numbers.

Pritam made K.K, Shaan, Soham etc sang to some really rollicking fast paced rock ballads that zoomed into charts but now its multitalented Ujjaini Roy making her way into similar genre with remarkable 'Jaaniye Teri Ankhoke Ye Roshani'. Ujjaini Roy's multifaceted avatar of being competent lyricist and impressive vocalist makes combustible chemistry with blazing hard-rock musical outburst. If 'Jaaniye' (DUS KAHANIYAN) had cardio-video stylized look then this 'Jaaniye' is presumed to be mushy romantic number with enthralling rock-band appeal. Ujjaini makes another incredible move into its 'sad version' where her enlightening voice comes in unplugged modes with subtle textures of soft synchronized arrangements. Impressive!!!

The cloudburst of new talents seems to be making consistent moves as two new upcoming singing talents Sharib and Toshi makes noteworthy presence through their effectual vocal renditions in thematically oriented meaningful track 'Jaage Hain Baad Muddat Ke'. Dasgupta's music beautifully captures the inspirational hues of enlightening with impressive modulating vocals that gets embroiled with enchanting electric guitar riffs and shimmering keyboard notes. The captivating soft-rock appeal gets transcended into 'Sufi-qawalli' modes in its latter interludes. Vibha Singh's soul-stirring lyrical works are beautifully worded in meaningful verses that epitomize the motivational feel of the flick. The number can serve as 'textbook' lesson for all aspiring guitarist in its finely textured electric guitar strumming that comes with perpetual sounding percussions. This presumed to be effective and thought provoking background score proves to be ideal launch for both these promising singers. Soulful!!!

Gourov Dasgupta makes all vigorous endeavors in showcasing ambitious outlook of modern-day youth in rip-roaring 'arena rock' mode thrust in 'I Just Want to fly'. Bonny Chakraborty, Gourav Dasgupta along with Ujjaini Roy and Aanchal Bhatia thrives out boisterously these animated sentiments in enthused hard-rock musical binge. Like ''Jaage Hain Baad Muddat Ke', this number too had engrossing electric guitar riffs that strikes belligerent concoction with thumping percussions and oozing vocals. It's 'remix' version is well mastered , remixed and programmed with enthralling disco beat fillers that makes reverberating impact with booming vocals. This thriving version reminds of hi-tech enthralling number 'Dus (remix)' and do expect some really booty-shaking on floors when it is played vociferous on DJ's desk. Enthralling!!!

There they witness farmer suicides and village politics. Again, it is not clear to the viewer what the director is trying to focus on. One particular 'Shankya' (Sachin Khedekar) is suddenly thrown on screen as some sort of saviour who has come out with a new micro something scheme to help the farmers with their loans. And the moneylender (Vikram Gohkale) is not too pleased with him. He wants him dead.

What's really the pick of this flick is Ashutosh Rana and his performance. This man here puts in a superlative performance that puts all the other actors in the shade. Simple, subtle, impressive, totally seeped within the character he portrays.... I could go on and on about him.

Just for him, go and watch this flick.

What's wrong with SUMMER 2007? Plenty I guess. For starters, There is no real focus, neither is there a clean stitch in the shift in scenes. The intention is good but the execution is juvenile. I wonder if director Suhail Tatari is in the winter of his career (pun intended).

When the movie ends, there is a line saying that this film is a tribute to the farmers of the country. It also rolls out statistics of farmer suicides and information that the change in government at the Centre did not really bring down the numbers. Fine. But if the intention was to focus on farmers, their plight, and a tribute to the 'Jai Kissan' slogan why deviate from the plot, enter into the campus of a medical college, and take the audience for an almost three-hour ride? Also, why bother showing college politics and student bickering and try to tell 10 stories within one story. In that case, Tatari should have taken the DUS KAHANIYAN route.

The movie begins with a disgusting reference to a real case, which happened in Delhi. Just two years ago, the guilty was awarded the death penalty. I think to even mention the name and repeat the dialogue in print would be being insensitive. One of the characters (Rahul) Sikander Kher mouths this dialogue. If the intention of the director was to drive home the point of the indifference of the youth, he could have used a fictitious name. More importantly, did the Censor Board sleep through this dialogue?

Anyways to get back to what's left of the movie... Rahul and his three medical college friends are shown talking about girls and smoking 'joints'. You get a feeling that this story is about 'out of control' youngsters. But it's not. The camera then moves into the medical college, to focus on campus problems and elections. You then expect some college fest. But before you can say 'Jack Robinson' Rahul and his two friends along with Gul Panag, who is strangely referred to as Mother T (Mother Teresa?) and Uvika Choudhary (is she a twin sister of Karishma Modi, the former Femina Look of the Year Winner?) opt for a training programme in rural Maharashtra to escape the elections. Why? Because of politics, silly.
