After the critically acclaimed debut film Udaan, Lootera is the second chance for Vikramaditya Motwane to present his style of  films. The film is based on the story of two lovers played by Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha. Inspired from O. Henry’s 'The Last Leaf', Lootera will be compared with the book by many book readers who will come to see the film. The film is scheduled for release on 5 July.

Trivedi has composed six original tracks for the film. As per reports, Trivedi along with the Chennai String orchestra has made a beautiful combination of music to bring back the 50s era for 'Lootera'.

‘Sawaar Loon’ is a very melodious song with the north-eastern style of dhols, flute and the percussion instruments that add flavours to the track. It is a pleasant track with meaningful lyrics by Bhattacharya and melodious rendition by Thakur. Simple lyrics and music makes the song sounds amazing.

Lyricist of the soundtrack 'Ankahee' has rendered the song beautifully and his voice perfectly suits the music of the film. The music is placed too well and the choice of the singer adds magic to the soothing track. Guitar gives the calmness and drums give the steady movement from one situation to another in the track. Lyrics have an important effect as it sharply speaks of the untold stories.

‘Shikayatein’ rendered by Kanan and Bhattacharya has more than simple but in-depth lyrics. The climax of the track is something that is interesting because of the weighty music and the chorus that gives the feeling that all complains (Shikayatein) will end with the dawn of sun. 

'Monta Re' is a Bengali lyrics based track which is soothing and gives a variety to this album. Monta Re means silly heart of mine. Kirkire and Bhattacharya have rendered the track in a style that is completely appealing. It has such a traditional Bengali feel and it is the direct role of the percussion used.

Trivedi renders ‘Zinda’ that reflects the sadness of life.  Don’t start analyzing the track. This track is filled completely with sorrow which does not even have one iota of hope. Shilpa Rao has given a lovely rendition to ‘Manmarziyan’; Trivedi and Bhattacharya have also lend their voices. The Ghungroo effect by the end of the track is attractive.

Overall, the album is really worth listening as Trivedi has offered a taste and variety. Like his last film ‘Kai Po Che’ which had large influence of Gujarati music; Lootera has a blend of Assamese and Bengali music. Seems like Trivedi is exploring all types of  music from around India and he is no mood to loss any chance to present it to Bollywood music lovers.
