15 Glorious Years of 'Luck By Chance': Revisiting the Soulful Soundtrack

As 'Luck By Chance' celebrates its 15th anniversary, let's take a nostalgic journey through the timeless tunes that made the film unforgettable. Directed by Zoya Akhtar and starring Farhan Akhtar and Konkana Sen Sharma, the movie not only made headlines for its stellar cast but also for its music, composed by the legendary trio Shankar–Ehsaan–Loy, with heartfelt lyrics by Javed Akhtar.


  • Sapno Se Bhare Naina (Shankar Mahadevan): Shankar Mahadevan's thumri-style rendition in the raag Bhairavi, backed by drums and bass, made 'Sapno Se Bhare Naina' an iconic track. The song, composed in just twenty minutes, remains etched in our memories.
  • Baawre (Shankar Mahadevan, Rajasthani ensemble): Featuring Hrithik Roshan, 'Baawre' is an upbeat fusion of Rajasthani folk music with traditional manganyar Rajasthani singers, creating a harmonious blend.
  • Pyaar Ki Dastaan (Amit Paul, Mahalakshmi Iyer):
  • This intentionally typical Bollywood romantic song, picturized on Farhan Akhtar and Isha, captures the essence of love within the movie.
  • Yeh Zindagi Bhi (Loy Mendonsa, Shekhar Ravjiani): Sung by Loy Mendonsa and Shekhar Ravjiani, this soothing track mesmerizes with its lyrics and the soulful voices of the artists.
  • O Rahi Re (Shankar Mahadevan): Shankar Mahadevan's excellence shines through in 'O Rahi Re,' showcasing his versatile voice and adding a touch of brilliance to the soundtrack.
  • About 'Luck By Chance': Released in 2009, 'Luck By Chance' is Zoya Akhtar's directorial debut, produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. The film, a drama about the Bollywood aspirations of Vikram and its impact on his relationship with Sona, received critical acclaim and several nominations at the 55th Filmfare Awards. As the film marks 15 years, the music continues to resonate, creating an everlasting connection with fans.
