Sajid and Wajid Ali are perhaps the most commercially successful and consistently inventive composers working on the Bollywood scene. The sons of tabla virtuoso Ustad Sharafat Ali Khan, they were trained as instrumental virtuosos from a young age. By the early ‘90s the teenaged brothers had begun to establish themselves as in-demand session players. Soon thereafter, chafing under the direction of other producers and composers, they decided to strike out on their own. Since the success of their score for 1998’s Pyaar Kiya to Darna Kya, the two have been constantly busy and have built up a formidable body of work that rivals that of master composers from Bollywood’s golden age. Teri Meri Kahaani is the soundtrack to a 2012 romantic comedy set in three different eras of India’s past, and it lets Sajid and Wajid show off their talent as mimics as they re-create the sounds of pre-independence India on the pulsing “Humse Pyar Kar Le Tu," imitate the funk- and psych-inflected compositions of ‘70s-era giant RD Burman on the swinging “Jabse Mere Dil Ko Uff," and flirt with techno influences on the contemporary-sounding “Mukhtasar."
