Samar Khan returns as director with Shaurya after the much disastrous Kuch Meetha Ho Jaye. This time around he leaves behind romance and explores the very crux of bravery. With a talented bunch of actors like Rahul Bose , K.K. Menon and Minisha Lamba; the film promises some good cinema.

Well, for the music of the film; Adnan Sami combines with ace lyricist Javed Akhtar to provide us with varying numbers.

The 6 track album opens with `Dheere Dheere' -a soft, soothing number that magnifies the simplicity and serenity of love. Adnan Sami and Sunidhi Chauhan combine to provide this soothing effect. Sunidhi who is often known for her loud numbers such as `Dus Bahane Karke' , this time enters a phase of complete tranquility with this soft and slow paced song.

`Dosti Kya Hai' brings the theme of friendship yet again to bollywood. This time around Abhijeet and Udit Narayan combine to explore the commitment and companionship expressed by two friends. The lyrics has been well written without being preachy in putting across the very essence of friendship. The track isn't loud and the musical arrangements are smooth. With good amount of promotion this track can surely be one of the top tracks for the next friendship day.

`Jaane Kyun Jaaneman' brings Sunidhi Chauhan at her loud best. Sunidhi renders to a pulsating disco number. The party track has got a very raunchy feel and do just ok.The track draws elements from the Bee Gee's hit number `Staying Alive'. The promotional video with Saif Ali Khan's ex-Rosa might just help in lifting this dance club number.

`Ghabra Ke Dar Dar Ke' is yet another loud, disco track with electronic orchestration. Sunidhi Chauhan and Adnan Sami render a track that sounds like a typical bollywood item number. The track fails to hook the listener and doesn't prove a hit. This club number falls flat especially in comparison to the previous one on the album.

The title track of Shaurya just lifts the album. The track crooned by the energetic Kunal Ganjawala  brings  in those elements of bravery and the theme of the film. The track is trendy, racy and Kunal brings out bravery with utmost passion. The track carries the soft rock tint and promises to hook every listener. The lyrics are just fabulous and the composition is rocking. This number is sure to provide for some good background score and with good promotion this one is headed to be an anthem for bravery.

Finally comes the `Shaurya Poetry' written by Jaydeep Sarkar who is the man behind the script of the film. The poetry is just so crisp and tunes you to the mood of the film. Like a cherry to top it all, Shahrukh Khan lends his magnificent voice to these beautifully penned lines. After Shahrukh's contribution to Kuch Meetha Ho Jaye in Samar's last film as a guest appearance, this time he makes his vocal presence felt. Unlike `Sattar Minute' from Chak De, King Khan doesn't get too loud rather with complete serenity within a span of 2 minutes he explains the crux of Shaurya.

On the whole , Shaurya has got a good mix of tracks ranging from the soothing romantic `Dheere Dheere' to the amplification of friendship through `Dosti Kya Hai' followed by the thumping `Jaane Kyun Jaaneman' and the inspiring title track. The music gives you a clear understanding that the film may necessarily not be the so called typical army film. Well, let's just wait and watch.
