Kanhu & friends work hard for ‘Rezgaariyaan’!

Following the lively title track, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s  MERE PYARE PRIME MINISTER, unveils another light and breezy song, ‘Rezgaariyaan’ (small coins/change), but with a serious message (composers Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy ; lyrics Gulzar).  Shankar Mahadevan and son Shivam join hands to render the number which is all about Kanhu and his friends vending condoms on the streets and traffic signals of Bombay  to earn some money.  The varied reactions  of the junta when young innocent children come up to them with condoms is something to watch out for. Here ‘Rezgaariyaan’ has beautifully been used as a metaphor for street children!

Rezgaariyaan

Dharara…Upar wala dega dega
Niche wala jo bhi dega paisa dega
 
Naanaaa…
 
Hoo…Rezgaariyaan…Rezgaariyaan…Rezgaariyaan
Bajne lagi Rezgaariyaan re
Oye Rezgaariyaan re
 
Naanaaa…
 
Hoo…Rezgaariyaan…Rezgaariyaan…Rezgaariyaan
Bajne lagi Rezgaariyaan re

Ho sachi bola hum loga fhotpath ke
Fhootpath ki koi jhaat nahi
Hooo…

Khodega paani pina
Or pina nahi
Baat bahi re
