Trust Anurag Kashyap to be quirky, really quirky, when it comes to treating his films. We saw that very recently in DEV D where he had the guts and courage to incorporate a song like 'Emosanal Atyachaar'. Well, he has done it again within a month's time by including another quirky number in his upcoming release GULAAL. The song in question is 'Ranaji' and this time around, Anurag Kashyap dares to bring in a mention of 9/11, albeit in light humor.

Sample the opening lyrics of the song which go as:

"Rana Ji Mhare Gusse Mein Aaye, Aiso Bal Khaye, Agiya Barsae, Ghabrae Mharo Chain; Jaise Door Desh Ke Tower Mein Ghus Jaaye Aeroplane"

Though it's this reference which kick starts the soundtrack of GULAAL, there are quite a few other digs on topics such as Uncle Sam, mineral water, democracy etc. that bring in a socio-economic humor to the proceedings. Written and composed by Piyush Mishra (who in fact is responsible for the entire soundtrack of GULAAL), 'Ranaji' is a 'mujra' which is rendered by Rekha Bhardwaj who certainly seems to be thoroughly enjoying the proceedings.

What further makes the number interesting is the fact that it is choreographed on none other than Mahi Gill, the female who played Paro in Anurag Kashyap's recent release DEV D. In GULAAL though she plays a courtesan and it is fun to see her in a different avtar as she lip synchs to 'Ranaji'.

Coming back to the song, one just hopes that there are no controversies around it in days to come and it is accepted with as much interest and enthusiasm as 'Emosanal Atyachaar'. What one can be assured though is whistles and catcalls in the auditorium when the song plays on screen.
