  • Katrina

    Arabic beauty! Katrina Kaif looks ethereal in her Mashallah avatar.

If you thought Katrina's shimmies in Sheila Ki Jawaani were to die for, you should certainly watch the seductress belly-dance in Ek Tha Tiger's first released song Mashallah.

The song begins with Salman 'Tiger' Khan strutting down the streets of Istanbul while a very Arabic tune begins to play in the background. The hunt is on as the agent follows the mystery woman as she leads him on the narrow alleys of the Middle East. No points for guessing who the veiled lady with the mystic eyes is.

As Tiger pulls the veil, the lady begins to cast her spell with her moves.

While the vocals don't begin for almost a minute, we don't mind because we're too busy ogling at the eye candy. Salman may be as rigid as a rod in his dance steps but hip movement was never his forte and the actor makes up for it with his 'dabangg-esque' expressions.

As far as the moves are concerned, Katrina holds the fort, literally. Set against the backdrop of the dusty Istanbul, Katrina's flexi waist and colourful clothes provide a refreshing contrast to the plainly clad Salman.

Katrina's hips don't lie!

Despite sounding overbearingly familiar, the song certainly has a freshness to it, mostly because we can't tell where it's inspired from.

The song has been sung by Shreya Ghoshal and Wajid of the famous Sajid-Wajid musical duo. The lyrics have been written by Kausar Munir.

We like the song overall but you watch the song for yourself and tell us what you think.

What we like:
The Arabic beats
Salman-Katrina's chemistry

What we don't like:
The Middle-Eastern cliché

What to look out for:
Katrina's killer looks
Salman's commendable attempts at dance
Katrina's silhoutte in the bright yellow skirt
Katrina's sensuos moves
