Is Riteish Deshmukh really playing a BANJO or something else.. find out...

RITESH DESHMUKH AND BANJO
RITESH DESHMUKH AND BANJO

BANJO - The much waited Hindi amalgamation of Riteish Deshmukh and noted Marathi cinema talent Ravi Jhadhav (NATRANG, BALAK PALAK, TIMEPASS) in this musical has released the first look of Riteish Deshmukh. Sporting long tresses, the look gives the feel of Riteish being a member of a rock band with those drums in the background adding to the zeal.

Though the first look manages to depict Riteish in a never before seen ‘Rockstar' kind of an avatar who for the first time plays a full-fledged Maharashtrian character in a Hindi movie, Nargis Fakhri plays his love interest - a DJ from US.

The instrument shown here seems to be ‘Bul Bul Tarang' a string instrument from India inspired by the Japanese ‘taishogoto'. The instrument has two set of strings - one set for drone, and one for melody.

Banjo, on the other hand is a four, five or (occasionally) six-stringed instrument with a thin membrane stretched over a frame or cavity as a resonator, called the head. The membrane, or head, is typically made of plastic, and the frame is typically circular. The instrument is an adaptation of African instruments in similar design. Banjo is frequently used is a mainstay of American old-time music. It is also very frequently used in traditional jazz.

Interestingly ‘Bul Bul Tarang' is also referred as Indian Banjo and going by the track record of Ravi Jhadhav, curiosity on how the director traces the story of ‘Banjo' (the musical instrument) in his effort to highlight the story of banjo players from Maharashtra and how the relevance of the art is deteriorating nowadays, needs to be seen.
