The first song of Imtiaz Ali’s Highway, titled ‘Patakha Guddi’ is finally out, and our cutie, baby faced Alia Bhatt looks extremely adorable.
The number is composed by ‘The Mozart of Madras’ AR Rahman and is beautifully crooned by the Nooran Sisters (Jyoti & Sultana. The lyrics are penned by Irshad Kamil.
Says Imtiaz: “Patakha Guddi is about freedom. It is also about purity and wildness. Who better than the wild children of Panjabi music – Sultana and Jyoti Nooran – to sing the track? After Rockstar, it was great to collaborate with Rahman Sir again and we have tried to keep the Highway album melodious, simple and heartfelt.”
Adds lyricist Irshad Kamil: “Patakha Guddi gives the fragrance of Punjab with its piousness and free spirit. The lyrics take the flight according to the growth of Veera’s (Alia) character in the film. The song has raw energy in its composition, singing and even in the choice of words.”
‘Highway’ is set to be released on February 21, 2014.
We love everything about this song. Both Alia and Randeep Hooda’s simple grayish muddy look, the locations, everything. Alia and Randeep make a very weird couple but in a good way! Also, we love Imtiaz Ali’s view at the world. It is unique and beautiful.
