SHANGHAI sad song: Duaa

Watch Emraan Hashmi and Kalki Koechlin bond in the political thriller

After the foot-thumping satirical Bharat mata ki jai, here’s a sad song from Dibaker Banerjee’s Shanghai starring Prosenjit Chatterjee, Abhay Deol, Emraan Hashmi and Kalki Koechlin. Duaa is composed by Vishal-Shekhar and rendered by Nandini Srikar, Arijit Singh and Shekhar Ravjiani who provided the additional vocals.

From the video, we think the melody is a part of the background score to build up the pathos of Kalki Koechlin and Emraan Hashmi’s characters in the political thriller. It’s not a song that you will add to your iPods and mp3 players immediately, but the heartrending lyrics make Duaa worth listening to more than once.

After a promising start with two diverse melodies – Bharat mata ki jai and Duaa, we eagerly await the much-talked about item song Imported kamariya. Let’s hope that one impresses us too like the previous numbers.
