Kalank‘s latest song First Class has just dropped and this is definitely an improvement from the previous numbers that we’ve seen in the past couple of months. Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani dance in this opulent number which could is only befitting, considering this is yet another Dharma magnum opus.
Kalank stars Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha as well. In this song however, we see a teary-eyed Alia Bhatt aka Roop sitting down to get married to Aditya Roy Kapoor’s character. Apparently unbeknownst to this, a very chirpy Varun is seen busting a move in what can be seen is the Bollywood version of a Muslim ghetto/community.
The music is by Pritam, the lyrics are by Amitabh Bhattacahrya and the vocals are by Arijit Singh and Neeti Mohan. The song is choreographed by Remo D’Souza.
Channeling Shah Rukh Khan from Raees, Varun is seen wearing a pathani shalwar and surma in his eyes. Kiara looks like a rehash from Aishwarya Rai’s Kajra Re and Madhuri Dixit’s Ghagra from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. But this is one more number where Madhuri isn’t dancing and that is causing us a lot of anxiety! We really want her to dance on a gorgeous song that does justice to Madhuri’s dancing credits.
Kalank is written and directed by Abhishek Varman and it is a period piece set in Delhi. Earlier, Kalank‘s song ‘Ghar More Pardesiya‘ released with Alia Bhatt dancing classically to the number with Madhuri watching. Given from the scenes, it seems that Alia and Varun‘s characters are star crossed lovers and Madhuri’s character, Bahaar Begum, seems to be a jilted lover/wife who has raised her son on her own. The film releases on April 18th, so we shall know soon enough what the film holds and whether it will be able to strike box office gold.
