Film: U Me Aur Hum
Director: Ajay Devgan
Producer: Devgan Films
Music Director: Vishal Bharadwaj
Lyrics: Munna Dhiman
One expects some great music as it is Vishal Bharadwaj and that too when he is only composing music for a film after a long – long time. Be it Maachis or Omkara, Vishal’s music has always been timeless.
While the music of U Me and Hum is youthful, snappy and foot tapping, it is nowhere close to his earlier works.
The problem is that some people set such high standards that it is difficult to match up to it, as one does not find a ‘Chood Aaye Hum” or “Chappa Chappa Charkha” or “Namak” kind of quality here.
As the album opens with the “Jee Lee” track, it sets a perfect ambience for a Latino Salsa kind of dance number.
Adnan Sami and Shreya Ghoshal are just super and this one will be hummed for a long time. This song begins faintly and rises to a crescendo.
The title track “U Me Aur Hum” has once again been beautifully rendered by Shreya Ghoshal. Asif Ali Beg comes in for the English lyrics and this track is very non Vishal Bharadwaj. One can say that it comes as a surprise from this talented music director.
Then comes the sexy, naughty and saucy track “Saiyya” and no points for guessing the voice behind this song, Sunidhi Chauhan it is. This track would sure be worth a watch! Munna Dhiman comes up with some very interesting lyrics for this song.
Coming up next is “Phatte,” a Punjabi number but once again this track is distinct and not the typical bhangra number.
“Dhakda,” rendered beautifully by Adnan Sami and Shreya Ghoshal, is a dance number for sure. The lyrics are very beautiful and fit the situation to the T.
The last song in this album is the male version of “U Me Aur Hum,” which has been rendered by Vishal. His voice is a breath of fresh air.
All said and done the album is intoxicating and will grow on you.
