Excel Entertainment’s Reema Kagti directed Akshay Kumar starrer GOLD is a historical sports drama set, in the pre Independence era. There was huge expectations from it’s first song, ‘Naino Ne Baandhi’ composed and penned by Arko. Unfortunately it leaves much to be desired . The (many times!) heard before tune and routine filmy lyrics would have been good for any other actor but they are simply not expected from an Akshay Kumar starrer whose films have had outstanding romantic compositions from KHILADI right down to RUSTOM and thde latest PADMAN. Young Yasser Desai does well with the rendition. Coming to the visuals (That is what matters), the song does give a beautiful insight into the blissful married life of Akshay-Mouni who essay roles of a young Bengali couple to perfection with their looks and get up. Mouni looks truly ‘Bangla’ beauty and Akshay does win hearts with his simple romantic ways, and also shows how Mouni supports Akshay during his tough times with the visuals ending on a love note.
