Here Comes Pinga From Bajirao Mastaani
After the Qawwali track ‘Deewani Mastani’from the movie Bajirao Mastani, Sanjay Leela Bhansali hits the screen with his next dance number ‘Pinga.’ It is one of the most awaited movies of the year and the songs are nothing but creating an anxiety in the audience for the unveiling of the grand story on 18th December 2015.
If ‘Deewani Mastani’ is the reminiscence of the song ‘Jab Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya’ from the movie Mughal – E – Azam, this particular song featuring Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, doesn’t fail to remind the audience of the magic created by Bhansali himself with the divas Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai in the song ‘Dola Re’ from the movie Devdas (2002).
‘Dola Re’ showcased the Bengali tradition on screen whereas Pinga reflects the Marathi tradition. The gripping aspect of the video is the Lavni, the traditional Maharastrian dance, tapped by the gorgeous looking actresses Chopra and Padukone choreographed by Remo D’ souza. Earlier it was Paro and Chandramukhi, now the magic is recreated by Kashibai played by Chopra and Mastani played by Padukone who are the wife and lover of Bajirao played by the actor Ranveer Singh. In Maharastrian outfit and with their graceful dance, Bhansali’s divas yet again steal the hearts of the audience.
Crooned by Shreya Ghoshal and Vaishali Made, the lyrics have been penned by Siddharth Garima while the music has been composed by Bhansali. The grandeur of the song Dola Re might be missing in terms of sets, costume and beats, which again might not be the requirement of the movie. In contrast to Bhansali’s grand setting, the set of Pinga appears to be simple and lighted with thousands of ‘diyas.’ Despite the simpleton factor the song promises sheer entertainment to the audience and Bhansali’s magic of Lavni is worth watching and spending time on.
