Even though there was a six month gap between Om Shanti Om and Tashan, it has been an array of musical releases for Vishal-Shekhar. Bhoothnath followed Tashan and now De Taali has also hit the stands. After a very good (Tashan) and a plain average (Bhoothnath) affair, one has good expectations from De Taali primarily because the film boasts of a young and energetic cast of Ritiesh Deshmukh, Aftab Shivdasani, Ayesha Takia and Rimi Sen. Since the quartet has usually been associated with films comprising of music that is fun and peppy, one expects the same from De Taali as well, especially with Vishal Dadlani himself doubling up as the film's lyricist. Well, the expectation is indeed met as De Taali turns out to be an enjoyable album!
20 seconds into 'Everybody Put Your Hands Together' and you can find your neck swaying with the song's beats. With a mix of English and Hindi lyrics, 'Everybody Put...' is cool, funky and energetic - everything which goes perfectly well with the club setting mood. A dance number which sees Sunidhi Chauhan, Anushka Manchanda and Shaan coming together, it is quite contemporary and has a Vishal-Shekhar stamp all over it. Not that the song is plain rhythm and beats - it has its own share of melody as well, especially in the middle portions - but overall it sticks to the club mix genre!
While the words De Taali are heard extensively in 'Everybody Put...' as well, there is an entire song which is titled 'De Taali'. Yet another young number which goes perfectly well with the mood of the film's setting, it has a very 'American Pie' kind of college setting to it; especially in the way it is picturised. This time around Abbas Tyrewala chips in as a guest lyricist. Sunidhi Chauhan and Shaan make sure that the youthfulness of the proceedings continues to constantly pick on momentum by means of 'De Taali'. They pretty much succeed in doing so with even more fun on the way once the 'remix version' arrives.
