Zooming bikes! Highway chases! Leather-clad guys and gals! Doesn't sound like your traditional Yashraj Films presentation, right?
It is taken for granted that if a film bears the Yashraj logo, it has to be a romantic affair. In that sense Dhoom, produced by Aditya Chopra and directed by Sanjay Gadhvi, is anything but mush.
Gadhvi, who earlier directed Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai for the Chopras, is back with his latest offering featuring Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra, John Abraham, Esha Deol, and Rimi Sen.
The music, composed by Pritam of the Jeet-Pritam duo, with lyrics by Sameer is really catchy.
Dhoom machale sets the mood with its rocking beats and sizzling rendition by Sunidhi Chauhan. It doesn't take much for this zesty number to grow on you.
Want more? The album offers another version of the same. This time around, Tata Young (yes, the one who sang Sexy, Naughty, Bitchy) does the honours. Young adds a zingy flavour to Dhoom, which has English lyrics by Asif Ali Baig. She also features in a special promotional video of the track directed by Arjun Sablok (Na Tum Jaano Na Hum).
Although it makes for good hearing, Shikdum has faint traces of Hum Tum's Chak de in its beats. Shikdum [Bedroom mix] is a sexier version.
How to woo a girl, tapori ishtyle? Listen to Dilbara. An engaging melody interspersed with Abhishek Bachchan's wisecracks.
Remember Kunal Ganjawala who crooned Bheege hont, the hot track from Murder? The talented singer teams up with the It's the time to disco girl Vasundhara Das for the rhythmic, foot-tapping Salaame.
If you are looking for both music and masti, Dhoom is just the soundtrack for you.
