Dr. Cabbie song Dal Makhani: An odd Punjabi number

Dal Makhani is a peppy but kind of odd Punjabi number from the upcoming movie Dr. Cabbie. You will see Vinay Virmani and Isabelle Kaif shaking their legs on the dance floor. The overall picturisation of the song is done on a typical disco-party type setup. The music of the song has a typical Punjabi folk song touch.

Background dancers in tacky shimmery dress, bhangra dancers and the gaudy set up of the song seems to do very little to impress the audience. The choreographers of the songs seems have not put in efforts to make the main lead of the film Vinay Virmani and Isabelle Kaif dance to the beats of this Punjabi number.

While we all have always known ‘Dal Makhani’ as a popular Punjabi dish, making a song out of this sounds too odd. Well the lyrics, “Tu meri Dal Makhani”, are actually very weird and cheap C-grade type. Sung by Manj Musik and Raftaar, the lyrics of this stupid song have been penned by Manak E and Ajay Virmani and the music is given by Pama Sarai and Manj Ral.

Isabelle Kaif, sister of the very famous Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif, has finally bagged a movie with Dr. Cabbie. It seems her big sister has not given her any tips on what kind of movies to choose. Besides, she looks far too different than usual in this song. We think Isabelle needs to take some dance lessons and also some acting tips, if she is willing to make her mark in Bollywood. The main lead of the film, Vinay Virmani, also needs to brush up with his acting and dancing skills.

Produced by FirstTake Entertainment & Caramel Films, Dr. Cabbie is set to release on September 19, 2014. The movie has been directed by Jean-Francois Poullio.
