Looks like AR Rahman is back in his form with Highway. The just-released song trailer of Patakha Guddi works at various levels. It's not just about music; the lyrics, the landscape and Alia's effortless performance enhance the overall experience of the song.
In the film, Alia Bhatt's character is abducted by a gang to which Randeep Hooda belongs.
The song is picturised on Alia. Sample the lyrics by Irshad Kamil.
Ha.. mitthe paan di gilori
Lattha suit da Lahori
Fatte maardi billori
Jugni mel-mel ke, kood-faand ke
Chak chakote jave...
The trailer of the film has got overwhelming response from the film fraternity. Alia admits she was confused when Imtiaz offered her the film.
"I was a bit confused when Imtiaz came with the offer. At the same time I was overwhelmed that he came up with a challenging film and role," Alia had told reporters at the launch of the film's theatrical trailer.
The film has been shot in six states of North India and it captures the landscape of different regions. The movie also features Randeep Hooda in the lead role.
