‘Gold Tamba’ is cute and cringe-worthy at the same time
By Bryan Durham - August 17, 2018
You lovin’ tamba, why you wanting gold?
Shahid Kapoor-Shraddha Kapoor starrer Batti Gul Meter Chalu’s first single, Gold Tamba is out. Composed by Anu Malik and penned by Siddharth-Garima, it has Nakash Aziz sing for Shahid.
The roothna-manaana in this video has a totally disinterested Shraddha blow off a die-trying Shahid. They make cute faces at each other at a mela as he compares himself to metals, anti-heroes and action heroes with less fanciable objects as the alternative until she relents.
Does she relent, though?
With juvenile lyrics that border on gibberish, ‘situational’ just sounds like a mask to hide behind. The music by the veteran composer is ordinary and not the kind we’ve come to expect of him. The thing is, one suspects we’re getting used to this sort of music.
Yes, hard work goes into making something like this and it worries you.
It’s a Gandi Baat, but only worse so…and it’s still going to be a hit.>
