Vishal's next film soundtrack: "U, Me Aur Hum"

Vishal Bhardwaj's next film soundtrack will be for the film (with the English grammar-teacher unfriendly title of) U, Me Aur Hum, scheduled to release early next year. This should mark his return to mainstream commercial filmdom (discounting his own directorial works) since perhaps Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega, which was 7 years ago.

The film also marks Ajay Devgan's directorial debut, which explains the choice of Vishal, after the success and friendship of Omkara.

"Blood Brothers"

Vishal's short film "Blood Brothers" was reportedly aired earlier this month on NDTV 24x7 on the occasion of World Aids Day. If anyone has seen this, please do leave a comment - most interested in knowing how it turned out.

Watching Vishal

Vishal Bhardwaj is one of the leading young filmmakers of India, but unlike others in the industry, he doesn't quite have a website or blog tracking his every move, which is probably a good thing. However, sometimes, this lack of media spotlight can make it difficult to follow his works even for the most ardent of fans, which is why this blog aims to collect news and views about this immensely talented man, and perhaps even shed some light on some of his past achievements.

To explain the url of this blog: apart from the Shakespeare connection, Vishal can be called a bit of a bard himself, what with his wonderful music compositions and his writing talents!
