Ranbir Kapoor smitten by Deepika Padukone in Balam Pichkari track
The countdown has begun! Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is releasing on May 31, and the promotions on the web have started with the release of the songs. While the party song Badtameez Dil continues to woo the music buffs, here’s another colourful and perky track: Balam Pichkari.
The song seems situational as it is a Holi track, and the brewing romance between Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone is evident in the video. Moreover, in a few scenes Ranbir looks completely smitten by his offscreen ex, and Holi is the perfect occasion to get close to each other. The song also has Aditya Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin, and the gang of four is in full masti mood, drinking bhang and dancing in desi style.
The song’s lyrics mention a girl: Balam Pichkari jo tuney mujhey maari toh seedhi saadi chorri sharaabi ho gayi. And the seedhi saadi chorri here is no one else but Deepika, the simple, bespectacled girl Naina Talwar, who falls in love with the flamboyant Bunny, played by Ranbir.
As the movie celebrates love in various moods, the Balam Pichkari track celebrates colourful love. Composed by Pritam, the song totally belongs to Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor. If the track Badtameez Dil didn’t focus on their chemistry, watch the two soaked in water, and smeared with colours in Balam Pichkari — they look smashing together.
