Ishq Vishk tells the love story of Generation X. Music is composed by Mr Original, Anu Malik himself and guess what, who teams up with him, none other thanAlisha. The first track, "Chot Dil Pe Lagi", is a frothy and fun love song with a catchy tune and okay lyrics. Alisha and Kumar Sanu sing well, enhancing the number further.

The other good track is "Kaun Hai Woh", which has Alisha teaming up with Udit Narayan. Once again it is good singing and ear friendly music rather than lyrics that make this song worth repeating. The album then gets quite dull with the likes of  "Mujhpe Har Haseena", which features Alisha, Sonu Nigam and Kumar Sanu. This song sounds very dated from the composition to the arrangements, and Sameer's lyrics are dire!

Alka Yagnik sings the slow ditty, "Aisa Kyon Hota Hai", which describes the emotions experienced while falling in love for the first time. The song is pleasant enough but there is nothing really striking about the song. This number sounds like sundry other songs in this genre. The sad version, "Mujhse Huee Bas Yeh", is no more appealing.

The duet, "Aankhon Ne Tumhari", is so generic that it'll be hard to distinguish it from the crowd of other such numbers. The tune is forgettable and the singing is very average. Skip it! Things don`t end here. Sonu Nigam appoints himself as the ‘love guru' in "Love Love Tum Karo", it's probably time to admit that this album has hit rock bottom. New singers, Priya and Prachi really don't help much.

Sonu Nigam and Alka Yagnik's, "Dooba Re Dooba" is Anu Malik's attempt at a ‘crowd pleaser'. Unfortunately, despite the enthusiastic singing, there'll be no pleasing anyone with this most average of songs. The title track, "Ishq Vishk Pyaar Vyaar", is somewhat better. The presence of a tune worth humming, decent lyrics and good arrangements make this song worth listening to. However, while Kumar Sanu delivers the goods, Alka Yagnik gives us an eardrum-piercing rendition that will make you rush for the volume control. The final song is  "Theme Piece" and it lasts just a minute and a half.
