AR Rahman’s latest rendition Khalifa for Arif Ali’s Lekar Hum Deewana Dil sounds monotonous and mediocre. Is Rahman losing his touch? Read on to find out…
Lekar Hum Deewana Dil featuring debutante Armaan Jain and newcomer Deeksha Seth released the music video of it’s latest song Khalifa. When we heard that Rahman is composing for this film we couldn’t contain our excitement, but Khalifa dragged our excitement into a pit of disappointment. The song reminded us a little of Yuva’s Honay do dil ko fanaa, failed to charm our hearts like Rahman’s previous hits. Perhaps, Rahman lacked inspiration while composing this one. Instead of making us groove, Khalifa bored us a bit. Even the signature step of the song wasn’t interesting.
The video is same old same old; lots of neon, pool party set- up, dangerous biking stunts being performed in front of huge halogen lights, people having fun in party hats *yawn* It doesn’t have originality because we have seen it already in I Hate Luv Storys and Student of The Year.
Listen in to the new Lekar Hum Deewana Dil song Khalifa and tell us is this is a rocking party number or not?
