Imagine someone in bare undies playing an electric guitar and screaming out a song in front of all the uncles and aunties in the house who stare back with disbelief and embarrassment at the spectacle that man makes of himself. That man is Abhay Deol.
“Think outside the box? Tum box nahin bees foot gehre hole mein ho. Toh tum usme se kya khaak bahar nikloge,” Abhay Deol cribs at the start of the song.
Then begins all the hammering of the power chords on the six-string. The words go, “Kachhuye ko joota pehen ke, suit, tie mein bann thhan ke, bolo kabhi dekha hai, dekha hai, toh aao dekho mujhe gaur se.”
The song is sung from the point of view of a man who’s bored of his humdrum life. His girlfriend has ditched him. His job sucks. And everything he does turns back on him. In short he’s full-on pakaoed with everything in life.
The song is composed by Shankar Ehsaan Loy and will find its takers and haters. Do you like it.
