Sheetal Tiwari's Film Reviews
In summary, given that Amit Trivedi is composing and Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu clearly belonging to the romantic comedy genre, one can easily expect an Aisha from this soundtrack. If you are, then you will be quite disappointed. While Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu is entirely listenable, it is below the standard of work we have witnessed Trivedi deliver in Aisha, Dev D and No One Killed Jessica. That being said, the musical verdict for his last gig, Chillar Party, should have been an indication of a downward spiral in any event. Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu is vast improvement from Chillar Party but nowhere near the genius witnessed in Trivedi’s aforementioned former works. Strictly speaking, ‘Aunty Ji’ and the title track (inclusive of remix) will most likely be the popular ones while ‘Aahatein’’ (inclusive of remix) is a close runner-up. ‘Gubbare’ and ‘Kar Chalna Shuru’ suffer from sounding like derivatives of each other even though they are decently written. Moreover, the unremarkable renditions all work against their favour.
In summary, Saibo undoubtedly is the crown jewel of Shor in the City and is a tough act to follow for the remaining tracks.
