Vishal's PATAKHAA : Bellicose sisters argue over their respective 'Balma'!

‘Balma’ the latest  track from Vishal Bhardwaj’s PATAAKHA, which is  about two warring sisters, features DANGAL fame Sanya Malhotra and Rekha Madan ( in lead roles). The show begins with a humorous but romantic telephonic encounter between Rekha and her boyfriend in a barn( ‘tabela’ ) with Sunil Grover smugly sitting by hearing them talk. And then follows a typical Rajasthani rural wedding set up where the two bellicose sisters argue over their respective boyfriends, trying their level best to demean each other with the village belles joining in the fun  and dancing. Rekha and Sanya, attired in highly colourful rustic ‘ghagra-choli’, look truely a part of the proceedings. The Vishal Bhardwaj composed song is folk based and lyrics  by Gulzar Sahab are super interesting and humorous, fitting in with the situation.
