Munni Badnam hui from DABANGG has a rustiness that has been the primary reason why it is dominating all the music charts. Set to score by Jatin Pandit, it indeed is a tipsy number. The playback for Munni Badnam hui has been given by duo Aishwarya Nigam and Mamta Sharma who were joint winners of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa in 2006. Incidentally, Aishwarya Nigam had performed in Salman Khan's presence in 2005, and within 5 years life has turned full circle as the song sung by the sisters has become a smash hit all over the country and could give DABANGG a fabulous opening. Aishwarya Nigam has given the male voice over, while the female voice is by Mamta Sharma.

Incidentally, it was another Bihari singer, Sharda Sinha, whose song "Kahe tose sajna", from MAINE PYAAR KIYA", had become a rage and fans all over the country side were exposed to the outreach of the idiom of folk in its most rustic and simplest form, and with DABANNG it is another Bihari pair whose voice over has caught the imagination of the nation.

The reason why the song has caught the imagination of whole country is owing to the fact that it is a somewhat refined version of the famous Bhojpuri song "Launda badnam hua naseeban tere liye", which was sung by Rani Bala. A controversy may rear its head that the song has been lifted and credited to Jatin Pandit, as it supposedly happened in Salman Khan's earlier film HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM, whose song "Nimbuda Nimbuda", another folksy tipsy number was supposedly lifted by Ismail Durbar without acknowledging the original composer.

Incidentally, the element of intoxication that oozes through each and every line of the song is owing to the choreography by Farah Khan. Incidentally, this is the third super hit that the duo of Malaika Arora Khan and Farah Khan have given, it all starting with "Chaiya Chaiya", in DIL SE, then in KAAL, and now DABANGG. It underlines the fact that Farah Khan still is one of the best choreographers that the country has produced, and she needs to give more attention to choreography as well.

While Salman Khan may have tweeted in jest to seek the blessings of Paul Baba, the octopus who was fate decider for the FIFA World Cup, indeed it seems Octopus has showered his benevolence on DABANGG manifest from the wide popularity of Munni Badnam Hui. The intoxication is just twenty four hours away from being unleashed on the silver screen.
