iSmart Shankar’s Dimaak Kharaab will blow your mind!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
- The lyric video for Dimaak Kharaab, the film’s first single is out and features iSmart Shankar lead trio Ram Pothineni, Nidhhi Agerwal and Nabha Natesh.
- From what we hear, the dance number has been set in a dhaba.
- Music director Mani Sharma has a massy sound and has featured on several hit Puri Jagannadh film soundtracks before this (Pokiri, Chiruta, Ek Niranjan among others). He last worked with Puri for the background score of Temper.
- The film is scheduled to release July 12.
This veritable foot-tapper has you from the get-go. It’s grimy, earthy and depending on who you’re asking, very heavy on sexual innuendo.
Mani Sharma’s banger is every bit a winner as the massy, play-it-loud item number. What you will not see coming, though is the thick-and-fast flying metaphors, courtesy lyricist Kasarla Shyam.
The opening lines are very visual and revolve around saree folds, the saree knot and the female waist. You see where we’re straying with this, right?
Anyhoo, then the female singer croons that she’s a “rare breed in birds” with the male singer reciprocating with a rather naughty comeback, he wants to “bite your dimpled cheeks”.
There are allusions to birds and scorpions, sweat droplets on a bed of flowers and talk of “gulping beauty”.
Somewhere down the line, there’s talk of “a girl mounted on another girl” (wait, what?) and everything “becoming clumsy”.
Singers Saketh and Keerthana Sharma make appropriate vocal inflections and create quite the mood.
You will have a fair estimate of how popular the song has become if I tell you that the lyric video itself has 4.8 million views in the last four days since its release.
The video only has cuts and images from the making of the song.
Know the language or not, you’ll be shaking your booty to and mouthing the tongue-twisting words in no time.
