Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus PADMAAVAT starring Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone has been garnering mixed reviews ever since its release.
Mired in various controversies ever since its announcement, PADMAAVAT has been under lot of scrutiny off late. But thankfully the film released finally on 25 January 2018. In order to get their film released on time the makers of the film were not able promote their film properly.
Hence the introductory song of Khilji was released today almost a week post the film’s release.
Ranveer Singh who has impressed the audience with his acting skills and look as Khilji is seen in the song ‘Khalibali’ where the antagonist Khilji is dancing, rejoicing in his kingdom and basking in his superiority
The theme and background of the song is dark which gives the perfect look to the role Ranveer is playing in this film. However the song does reminds us of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s previous film BAJIRAO MASTANI where Ranveer was dancing on ‘Malhari’. You get a déjà vu feeling as both the songs have similar background, feel and Ranveer possess the same energy.
‘Khalbali’ is sung by Shivam Pathak & Shail Hada under the music direction of Sanjay Leela Bhansali and lyrics have been penned by A M Turaz.
We can’t deny the fact that Ranveer’s energy is terrific and he does look like a beast in a rugged look celebrating his victory.
