“ Genre: Soundtrack / Artist: Original Bollywood Soundtrack / Audio CD „
Vishal Bhardwaj usually composes music exclusively for his own films, but with U,Me Aur Hum he makes an exception for friend-actor Ajay Devgan who happens to direct his first film.
'Dil Dhakda Hai' features Adnan Sami and Shreya Ghoshal and is a playful Punjabi track. While the lyrics try to be unusual, the composition doesn't live upto expectations. This song can only work with the film's visuals, where the characters are trying to make fun of each other. Audiowise, this holds limited appeal.
Vishal Bhardwaj turns the table and how! With 'Jee Le', Bhardwaj expands his range as a composer. Jee Le is western, peppy and has high dose of energy infused into it. Adnan Sami and Shreya Ghoshal redeem themselves after their flop previous song. The lyrics are more impressive too, and so is the tune. A winner!
'Phatte' reminds you of the first track and is another disappointment like the first song! Adnan Sami teams up with Sunidhi Chauhan this time around, but the composition is another letdown. Vishal Bhardwaj's Punjabi stint seems to be his weakness!
The title track opens with mushy love all around and soon Shreya Ghoshal takes over. 'U,Me Aur Hum' will be remembered for a long time for its title track! The lyrics are simple and meaningful, and the composition is very classy. Vishal's strength lies in such songs, and with this you get to listen what the man is capable of. It is soft, romantic, sad and sensitive.
Sunidhi Chauhan goes solo with 'Saiyyan'-another letdown! I still don't understand why they had to include such a song in such a film, but this is just filler material! The lyrics, tune and singing are all below par.
The man himself comes behind the mike to sing the male version of 'U, Me Aur Hum' and it is a treat to listen to him. The song essentially features the same composition but with different set of lyrics. Vishal's soft yet husky vocals gives a fresh appeal to the song. The lyrics are again very meaningful and this makes for a poignant listen.
U,Me aur Hum's soundtrack is inconsistent since it features 3 hits and 3 misses, but the title track is so good that you will remember the album for its good parts!
