De De Pyaar De’s Vaddi Sharaban doesn’t give you a high at all
By Bryan Durham - April 11, 2019
The first single to drop from the De De Pyaar De soundtrack is Vaddi Sharaban. The music for the track has been composed by Vipin Pattwa, the lyrics have been penned by Kumaar and the song has been sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and Navraj Hans.
The video features the lead pair Ajay Devgn and Rakul Preet as they scope each other out, she totally uninhibited and he as the epitome of aloofness.
A twenty-something at a wedding party enjoying herself as she eyes a tall, dark, handsome much-older gent (or he eyes her) is something that’s seen as quite normal in Bollywood. Or Tollywood. Or Kollywood.
Meet-cute chhodo, this is the sort of situation that should get you up on the dance floor shaking a leg or have you rooting for this empowered woman who knows who/what she wants and goes after it.
I’ll be frank that I don’t understand the fuss about the ‘glorification of alcohol’ in this song apart from the fact that Rakul walks around an outdoor party swigging from a bottle of watered-down coloured water that passes for liquor. Anyone doing that at a party for as long as she presumably does, is most likely to throw up at some point.
If you notice carefully, neither’s bottle/glass ever goes beyond a certain level. Explains why they can behave like they’re dancing sober. Wonder where all the alcohol is going, though!
If you’re listening to lyrics, there’s talk about getting the UK all shook, but that makes no sense when there’s mariachis walking around in sombreros (with no way of knowing if there was some theme for the party) strumming away by a lake/canal as an assortment of extras strut their stuff.
The music (Vipin Patwa), lyrics (Kumaar) and singing (Sunidhi Chauhan and Navraj Hans) are all strictly okay. Nothing in this department sticks out in recall.
All in all, a very average music video for a bland song.>
