The song ‘Badumbaaa’ from the film 102 NOT OUT has just been released and it is a breath of fresh air among the polluted mainstream of recent times. The song has a very upbeat tempo with a South American influence throughout the song.
Composed by Amitabh Bachchan himself, the song breaks away from the regular party numbers we have been catered to which just seem narcissistic in nature. This song makes you want to join the dance floor and at the least will bring a smile to your face.
The lyrics of the song lie in the essence of the film as much as we have seen in the trailers. There is an ongoing banter among the onscreen father son duo which is funny and charming in its own way. Breaking away from the skin show this song is specifically made in such a way that will make the generation of yesteryear shake a leg during family events and other occasions.
The lyrics are a call to every person going through a rough patch and to just let loose, Amitabh is a consummate professional and he owns the song since the beginning, he shows that he still has got it and challenges actors half his age with this performance. Through the midway of the song Rishi Kapoor too joins in the fun and the party aspect of the song as he seems opposed in the beginning and the pair make it seem so much energetic with a few ladies seem like they just got here from a festival in Brazil.
The video is a colour explosion and designed with murals on the buildings, every inch of the set has been clearly paid attention to and all these small details add to the fun of the song, the dance off between Amitabh and Rishi is pleasing to the eye. It looks like two grandfathers are having the time of their lives on screen and these cuddly individuals create chemistry that does not seem they haven’t worked together for over 27 years.
The idea for the song was developed by Amitabh Bachchan who also developed the music and sang along with Rishi Kapoor for the track with lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
Produced by SPE Films India and Treetop Entertainment and directed by Umesh Shukla, 102 NOT OUT releases on 4th May 2018.
