Ok, so the film may not have remotely done the kind of business which CHAK DE! INDIA did last year but when it comes to the title song, it has started finding similarities in the way it is being received, especially in the world of sports.
Remember the times when India was playing 20-20 cricket and winning majority of its matches in the middle of last year. This was the time when the song 'Chak De India' had caught popularity in a big way.
The two events came together and it was time for celebration as majority of news channels aired montages of winning moments of Indian cricket while playing this Sukhwinder Singh number in the background.
Cut to 2008 and situation is repeating once more with India finally getting on a winning note in Australia. Flavour of the season this time around? Title song 'Halla Bol' which, as luck would have it, again has Sukhwinder Singh at the helm.
News channels have picked up 'Halla Bol' as the track which now plays in the background as young Indian cricketers are literally announcing 'halla bol' at the cricket grounds. A few more wins and one never knows, 'Halla Bol' could well turn out to be another anthem number in the making.
