When you remake a film officially, you have so much to fall back on – a readymade story, the entire scenario, and the screenplay etc. In such cases, one expects a good watch by default. Though not a lot of people may know that the minimally publicised Rajeev Khandelwal starrer Soundtrack is an actual remake of Canadian film It’s All Gone Pete Tong one does expect some strong storyline from the looks of the promo. Whether it lives up to the expectations or not remains to be seen.
There are some films that sound very interesting and thrilling on papers but the moment they translate on celluloid, their magic just fades away. The case with Soundtrack apparently seems the same. Think of that one event in your life that completely takes away all that you ever had or wanted. Scary isn’t it? That’s exactly something that the film tries projecting with the idea of a passionate and successful DJ suddenly turning deaf; his rise from the ashes giving way to one of the most inspirational stories.
Soundtrack is the story of a music composer cum singer cum DJ Raunak Kaul (Rajeev Khandelwal) who comes to Mumbai with dreams of making it big in Music industry. He starts out as a DJ and turns out to be huge star of a club Tango Charlie run by Charlie (Mohan Kapoor). While the chronic alcoholic takes to alcoholism, drugs and smoking in a big way, success keeps following the DJ until a cruel turn of events changes his life forever. Soundtrack traces the rise, fall and ‘re-rise’ of a character who eats, sleeps and thrives on music.
