The first song of the film is out and we are loving it...
We had revealed to you the first look and teaser of Riteish Deshmukh's Banjo song Bappa over the past few days and now it is finally out! The first Ganpati song of 2016 is here and we have to say it is amazing! We have had quite a few Ganpati songs over the past few years, but we have to say that this one is exceptional...
In the song, we see lots of dance, masti and prayers! Riteish Deshmukh, a Banjo player, plays the instrument while praying and dancing for Lord Ganesha. Banjo is set in Maharashtra, so obviously a Ganpati song has to be there when the film has a lot of cultural influences or else it would be really incomplete, right?

Riteish is seen wearing a shirt and bandana playing with gulal. He even has Lord Ganesha painted on his palms! We see him dancing with full energy and passion as he welcomes the Lord. The music and lyrics of the song are also fabulous!
The film is directed by Marathi film-maker Ravi Jadhav who will make his directorial debut in Bollywood with this film. It is about Banjo players from Maharashtra and how this art has been neglected despite numerous youngsters getting involved in it.

Check out the song right here, right now: Bappa
The song gives you a total Ganesh Chathurti feel and the beats are an ultimate fusion of western and classical tunes. Especially, the way it begins. The visual imagery in Bappa is just stunning! Vishal Dadlani's deep,husky voice is hypnotic!
Honestly there is very little to find fault with. In fact, this Ganpati track is a complete refreshing change from the ones we have heard so far!
