Cool me down
I'm feeling so exotic
Yaa right now..
I'm hotter than the tropics
Take me down
Mumbai Cuba baby let's go
La-love me all the way o Rio
(Desi girl)
I'm feeling so exotic
Tumko jo dekha maine Toh maine ye jaan liya hai
Pardesi babu ne Iss desi dil ko maan liya hai

A confusing song right at the outset, Priyanka Chopra's exotic is more odd than exotic. A video that conjures up images of a glittery Jennifer Lopez gone wrong to candy floss Britney style shots, Priyanka has tried it all. Moving from "In my city" Will.i.am to "Exotic" Pitbull, Priyanka seems to go the Lopez way quite a bit. But PeeCee is no JLo.


The 'desi' step in the video is less cute and more forced, exoticisizing something that's definitely not India. The 'Miss World and Mr Worldwide' collab gets a thumbs down from us.

Also, next time, PC please don't kill a boderline catchy tune with forced desi-ness.
