Watch Akshay Kumar and Asin dance with abandon in ‘Lonely Song’ from Khiladi 786. It’s a number that will find its admirer and critics.
‘Lonely Song’ opens with some brisk rapping by Yo Yo Honey Singh and slips into a typical Himesh Reshamiya composition with the man himself lending his characteristic nasal twang to the vocals. Lyrics by Shabbir Ahmed are trite, at best, and here is a snatch.
“Tujh se dur main bhi hoon majboor, Dil ko sataye teri akhiyon ka noor, Aah, bbat ye sachhi aaj tujh ko bataaun, bas tere liye main ye geet likhte jaaun”.
Akshay Kumar, dressed in a long kurta and sporting that snazzy scarf and aviators, dances with a bunch of guys in afro hairdos. There are also skimpily clad foreign girls grooving to the Bollywood beat.
Asin, clad in saris in traditional style, matches the dance steps with Akshay who even gets to show a few gravity-defying stunts like high jumps or walking in the air with a guitar.
The song’s setting keeps changing from inside a mall (you can spot a few showrooms in the background) to an open field with a few tractors, fancy watchtowers and water jets. It’s a full-on party scene with pretty babes and Akshay Kumar grooving to what some might find a strictly passable composition by Himesh Reshammiya.
