If you have been online in a while lately, then you must have definitely seen status updates,links and tweets about it. Even if your download limit has been maxed out, you must have come across your sutta friend humming lines that have something to do with a hand full of glass, glass topped up with scotch with a Tamil twang. There’s a minimum chance that you would be confused after reading what you just read, but for those who still are clueless, help yourself.
Now, we shall ponder into a few reasons of why the song became a rage across the globe extending from Idli to Italy and from Madurai to Madison square.
Reason# 1: The song itself is a star in its own respect. The tune of the song is really peppy and fresh given the fact that its composer is a new kid in the block and has not even graduated from college. OK, are we talking Justin Babbar here?
Reason# 2: The Lyrics of the song have been penned by the master himself who apparently sang it after paying a visit to Mister Monk or Mister Daniels. This guy also happens to be the actor/ singer/ co-producer/ co-writer of the film. Seriously, so versatile da? These Kingfisher guys and all should take cost cutting classes from him.
Reason# 3: The Subject of the lyrics melancholically speak of the impending issue of love failures. The song goes on to explore the importance of girl(s) in the life of a guy and how despite so much he tries, he fails to find the right girl for himself. That is it! Bang on! That is the Connection quotient/USP/USB/UPS of the song and that is how it managed over 0.6 million views on your tube (pun intended). After all, getting a decent state rank in AIEEE has always been easier than getting a nice girlfriend in today’s time.
Reason# 4: Shruti Haasan is seen hanging around. She has an almost cameo in this almost music video. She shows her pretty ballerina-esque face (makes a poker face at times), tries so hard to flirt with the kid composer and gives a distorted haan-haan-badhiya-badhiya expression to the singer/actor/co-producer/ co-writer at 1.06. Definitely she looks pretty this time, or maybe her lips look larger and redder than ever. But who cares da, Shruti is Shruti. Hot.
Reason# 5: Now the very mention of the word Hot reminded me of another word ‘Dot’ which in turn conveniently reminds me of another strong reason of why this song clicked. FYI, the other lady in the video happens to be Rajinikant’s eldest child. Dot.
Need I say more?
PS: The singer/actor/co-producer/ co-writer is seen trolling around in the studio by the way. Like a poltergeist.
