Well, this is a fun song! And an extremely blatantly “we aren’t even trying” historically inaccurate song. Yaaaay! I love when movies stop trying and tell us they aren’t trying! Way better than pretending to be trying but not really.
Oh, and also, Varun and Aditya are friends! In a kind of awkward “we don’t usually hang out together in this neighborhood” way. I like the little glances they keep exchanging of “are you having fun? I’m having fun”.
Plot guesses, they could be childhood friends rediscovering each other as adults. They could be friends in a different context (like, Varun is Aditya’s blacksmith and they hang out together at the stables or something). Or they could be brand new friends, just shared some experience together and now are going out to celebrate. I’m assuming this is Varun’s area since it is the Muslim area and Aditya, upper class respectable Hindu, is enjoying dancing with the fun lower class bar dancer type.
What do you think?
