Would the mujra of AGENT VINOD click? Doubts persist

While Kareena Kapoor has gone on record to say that the mujra which she has performed in AGENT VINOD was undertaken after taking tips from one of the best performers of mujra in the Indian film industry, Rekha, the effect does not have the magic that Rekha used to bring whenever she decided to perform a mujra on the screen.

Indeed, the promos of mujra of AGENT VINOD do not instill the same confidence at all, as the mujras have done in the past in Indian cinematic history. A mujra, as per its definition, has to be performed to the accompaniment of Indian classical instruments, predominant being the humble sarangi. Besides, it needs to have the movements performed through Kathak, and not over accompaniment of English musical instruments.

Historically, mujra evolved around the time of Awadh civilization from early sixteenth to late eighteenth century, its biggest patron being Nawab Wajid Ali Shah, who, as per the historical chronicles also used to perform himself as well when he was in trance. One can understand it would be difficult to find the musical instrument players of such accomplishment to create that kind of an ambience, but its basic ethos indeed was brought out just a few years ago by Sanjay Leela Bhansali in DEVDAS, where Madhuri Dixit performed an exquisite mujra.

The second characteristic of mujra is that it has to be performed with a lots of thehrao, i.e. each and every move takes its own time to be executed, and it cannot be broken down into numbers, as the dance items these days are broken into numbers to shoot a song, and therefore the ability of a mujra to mesmerize the audience is not manifest in the song picturised on Kareena Kapoor in AGENT VINOD.
