Woot! So excited to have something to be excited about! I stayed up late special for this release, and wrote most of this post in advance so I could just plug in the link.
Shahrukh is the greatest and this is the best song from the best movie that ever was or will be! (written one hour before release time, as is traditional for fan complimentary comments)
In reality, I am curious about this song because he and Dips haven’t co-starred for quite a while, he hasn’t done that many songs with Vishal-Shekhar, and of course we haven’t seen SRK in a song in AGES. His last movie (Zero) I did not like, but the song sequences were generally pretty high standard. And of course the one before that (JHMS) I LOVED and the songs were spectacular. So naturally my hopes are very very high for this. Let’s see what happens!
And now it has released!!!
first reaction: For once, they released it with subtitles from the beginning instead of making us wait. Maybe because of the multi-language release?
Second reaction: There seems to be something wrong with the film quality? All the faces look sort of off somehow. But maybe that’s because I’m watching it the second it releases and the quality will improve later.
Third reaction: SRK looks like a troll. I think it’s the wig? He’s got a fake hairline that is lower and straighter than his natural hair line and it makes his whole face smaller and just BLECH. The one big in the middle where he has his natural hair, the shirtless flashback/forward, looks fine. It’s just a really bad wig in the dance-y bits, I think.
Fourth reaction: This feels really similar in almost all ways with “Ghungroo” from Siddharth Anand’s last movie, so I’m assuming it has a similar place in the plot? Some sort of idyllic memory when everyone was undercover pretending to be tourists but actually spies?
Fifth reaction: Shahrukh can salsa, too bad he looks like a troll
