Padmaavat’s Khalibali song is the new Khilji anthem : Ranveer Singh plays Satan incarnate!
Jan 29, 2018
If there`s one thing that you absolutely
cannot miss out in the entire movie is Ranveer
Singh’s portrayal of Alauddin Khilji. Playing a ruthless emperor, the
character has a vile yet elusive charm.
Wrapped in magnetism and power, this sweet nemesis is Satan incarnate himself, who seems to bring out the most demonic
fascinations of which you will be guilty and aroused.
The movie released the rest of its music
score on 23rd January, two days prior to its worldwide and much-awaited
release. One of the songs Khalibali
has especially caught our attention.
The song features the savage sultan
dancing and merrymaking in the most carnal way, with his troops. A restless Alauddin
Khilji eagerly awaits the arrival of Padmavati and orders a celebration.
Reason? Sultan is lust-smitten. It is not one of those Sooraj Barjatya
celebrations you are expecting. The song is a perfect macabre and has a close
resemblance to Disney`s 1934 Goddess of Spring. The devil dancing with his
reapers of death.
The insanity and energy of the song
makes one wonder if the entire song is a VFX. Ranveer`s dance steps coupled
with the chorus singing "Qalbiya qaiss wallah" relentlessly, would
strip away the last of hopes from their enemies. Such is the darkness of the
song. Not a bad one though. Shivam Pathak and
Shail Hada have voiced the emperor`s feelings and A M Turaz has penned down the lyrics.
The songs end with the Sultan being
brutally attacked by `someone` and is fatally wounded. Does he make it through?
Well I guess we cannot give away ant more spoofs.
When asked about playing an anti-hero
Ranveer said, "I felt if I had to play negative, it had to be with Mr.
Bhansali. Also, I cannot say no to him. If I have any standing, it’s because of
his films. He gave me Goliyon Ki Raasleela - Ram-Leela; at a time when my career
wasn’t going great guns. He had me play Bajirao in Bajirao Mastani, a character
that was ahead of my years. I’m indebted to him as an artiste. He has pushed my
boundaries and got the best out of me."
The movie released worldwide on 25th
January and stars Ranveer Singh, Deepika
Padukone and Shahid Kapoor in the lead. It has been receiving a positive response
from the crowd and we wish team Padmaavat the best of luck!
