THUGS OF HINDOSTAN Amitabh-Aamir go ‘Vashmalle’!

Yash Raj Films commenced the promotions of their  Diwali extravaganza, THUGS OF HINDOSTAN, with a bang! Two icons of Hindi cinema, megastar Amitabh Bachchan and superstar Aamir Khan, grooving in perfect rhythm, with superbly coordinated expressions and moves, depicting  a lovely camaraderie and crackling chemistry in the Ajay-Atul composed, Amitabh Bhattacharya penned, ‘Vashmalle’(Baloch word meaning sing & dance with gay abandon). A celebratory song rendered with zeal and fervour by Sukhwinder and Vishal, the teaser sees the two actors in their pirate attires, having fun by getting drunk, and their infectious energy is simply mind-blowing. Having said that, Ajay-Atul’s number leaves a lot to be desired as it needed to be more catchy, rhythmic; historic if one may say so. Perhaps they could have taken a leaf out of RK Films’s ‘Vashmalle (HENNA- music by late Ravindra Jain)!

Are ra ra…
Hud-dang mache shor mache halle
Ay are ra ra…
Jab tak na dhale raat jashan karle
Haan thirak thirak thirak thirak jhoom le
Vashmalle, vashmalle
Vashmalle yaara vashmalle (x2)

Qaazi bole peena paap hai
Lekin apni tabiyat madira-chaap hai
Na bandhu na sakha, apna kaun sagaa
Ik saaqi hi maai baap hai

Pee ke Fanney Khan ban jaayenge
Gaana aata na ho phir bhi gaayenge
Sur behaal toh kya
Chhoote taal toh kya
Itni bhool chook maaf hai

Sooraj ko doobne se pehle hi salaam hai
Hoti peeyakkadon ki dopahar bhi shaam hai
Gustakh josh ne zara tangdi jo maar di
Dekho zameen pe hosh gir pada dhadam hai

Are ra ra…
Hud-dang mache shor mache halle
Ay are ra ra…
Jab tak na dhale raat jashan karle
Haan thirak thirak thirak thirak jhoom le
Vashmalle, vashmalle
Vashmalle yaara vashmalle (x2)
