Dearth of originality seems to have hit the film industry hard. Jatin Lalit have failed to create the musical magic that they created in films like 'Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayange'. However, inspite of saying all this, Yash Raj Films are the best and Jatin Lalit are one of the finest directors we have in the film industry. The music of 'Hum Tum' does have that secret formula which makes their music popular.
The Very first Song "Ladki Kyon" is gaining extreme popularity. Apart from Saif's witty remarks and Rani's Cute Haird-do, the song appeals to mostly youngsters. From the school going kids to the college going adolescents. Saif is the witty, Comical, good-humoured boy next door, and this becomes apparent in this song, as he engages in a sweet conversation with Rani and they look like two cute kids bickering. However, the song, sung in the voices of Shaan and Alka Yagnik, does not have the necessary beats, and falls flat. Alka Yagnik's soft voice contrasts Rani's husky voice in this song. One can make nothing much of the lyrics.
However, the second song, "Chak De", is more peppy and catchy. Sonu Nigam's voice does bring the mood back and Sadhna Sargam's voice compliments the song. And the mood gets more optimistic, with the third song of the film, which also happens to be the title song "Hum Tum". An extremely melodious song, this is the best track of the film. Alka Yagnik's soft-soothing voice makes the title song a little happy and a little sad. Babul Supriyo too creates the mood for romance with his style of singing. Like all the title songs composed by Jatin-Lalit, this song too, reveals a lot about the film. Saif and Rani, in singing to each other finally realize that it is time to come closer and this is apparent when they sing "Hum tum pass aaye".
The fourth song "Gore Gore" sounds extremely familiar. It is Alka Yagnik's solo performance. And just when one thinks that the music is getting better, it comes back to square one. There is nothing unconventional about this song and Alka Yagnik sounds just ok in this song. As for the lyrics, they are disappointing! Rani seems to be teasing Saif in this song.
"Yaara Yaara" sounds like any other song from a Yash Raj Film. Alka Yagnik and Udit Narayan are always a pleasure to hear when they sing together. However, Their impact is not felt on this particular song. The next track is an instrumental version of the title song "Hum Tum". This is not sad and it is actually a Little fast paced and has a romantic feel to it. Unlike, other instrumental songs composed by them, this one is readily liked.
The next song is U 'n' I. When converted to Hindi, it becomes Hum Tum. Sung by Rishi Rich, this sounds familiar to the track they sung in the film "Boom". However, it comers as a relief. It has the beats and we dance to the tunes. So no one is complaining. The one thing that is different about the music of this film is that each song Seems to tell a story of its own, unlike other songs that are just randomly put together. The songs seem to follow a certain pattern.
