Music review:
The music album of U, Me, aur Hum contains six songs. The interesting thing about the album is that it does not have any remix versions but not all the songs are equally enjoyable.

Jee Le:
Latino prelude with flamenco guitar sets the mood. Adnan Sami starts the song softly and then picks up the tempo and suddenly you hear the drumbeats and a host of other instruments used in latino music. Imagine a salsa dancer starting slowly and then with a twist starts to dance around. Shreya Ghosal’s soft romantic voice just infuses more romantic feeling into the song. Adnan and Shreya sound great. This is the song worth hearing a thousand times.

U, Me, aur Hum:
This is a soft romantic song. Upon hearing this song, Ajay Devgan could not hold his tears. He requested director Vishal Bharadwaj to include the regular and unplugged version in the album. Shreya Ghoshal sung the regular version. Slow jazz type music, interspersed English rap make it a bit different to hear. Asif Ali beg wrote the English lyrics. Many complained that without the English rap, the song would have been better.

U, Me, aur Hum (unplugged version):
This unplugged version is sung by Vishal Bharadwaj. The interesting thing is Vishal’s voice gives you a feeling that a young man is singing the song.

Remember “Arey Hai Hai Yeh Majboori” from Roti Kapda aur makan? This song is more or less that type? A song where a wife is complaining about her husband not paying attention to her. Sunidhi sounds just ok.

A bhangra song mixed with techno bits. It is a typical dance floor song. I did not find it very enjoyable. If you are Punjabi song fan then you might like this song.

Dil Dhakda Hai:
It is the dance floor song where you see Ajay Devgan getting drunk and dance around the bar. It is just another fast track peppy song.
