Sukriti and Prakriti Kakar, the talented twin sisters from New Delhi have taken the Indian music scene by storm. They are the first twin sisters to make a mark in the Indian music industry. However, thanks to their surname, the Kakar sisters get confused for the other famous sisters of the Indian music scene, Neha and Sonu Kakkar. Even though they are proud of being the first twins in the Indian music scene, they are cognizant of the fact that they can’t always perform together.
As a matter of fact, they auditioned against each other on many occasions and forged their careers individually before teaming up. Even though they love singing with each other Prakriti and Sukriti Kakar know that they will have to fly solo in the playback singing career and opportunities for singing together will be limited in that field. After singing for some hit Bollywood numbers, and collaborating with huge artists like Yo Yo Honey Singh, the twins have gone on to release their own music as well. Their latest offering, “Hum Tum” is a fresh and breezy dance number, and that’s what we are reviewing here.
“Hum Tum” kicks off with a distinctly Latin sounding melody which leads into the addictive shuffling beat which is layered with the dreamy voices of the Kakar sisters. The vibrant and chirpy dance number is a fun portrayal of the thoughts and feelings of youngsters dealing with a day’s grind and looking for solace and relief in the arms of their loved ones. It’s a song in which Prakriti and Sukriti Kakar are yearning for an escape from the chaos with the love of their lives. Their performances are quite on point and this vibrant and chirpy dance number can easily become the soundtrack to your escape as well.
The refreshing and groovy music of “Hum Tum” has been written by the Kakar twins and Lost Stories while the light and airy lyrics have been penned by Mellow D. The incredibly colourful music video (directed by Adil Sheikh) also features popular dancers Raghav Juyal and Priyank Sharma. The music video is very well made and produced and adds a lot of flavour to an already fun song.
Verdict: A light, fresh, and airy song for you to enjoy.
