We just watched the teaser of the Bhumi Pednekar-Tapsee Pannu film Saand Ki Aankh and found it interesting. Then the song Main udta teetar came one, about halfway into the clip. With the strong, resonant voice of Sunidhi Chauhan ringing true in the rustic tune, with the language echoing the earthy tones of the landscape and dusty-faced characters, it worked like few songs have done since perhaps the soundtrack of Lagaan hit the airwaves in 2001. The two lead characters did not seem to be quite right with their city-girl postures and salon-perfect smooth skin, no wrinkles around their eyes from squinting into the harsh sun. But the musical number fit like the proverbial bullet in a barrel as the words ‘Main udta teetar laaung re jail ke bheetar laaungi re..’ rang clarion.
Listen to the song as you watch the teaser, you will know what we mean!
