Get ready for it. 'Go Pagal' from Akshay Kumar's latest film  Jolly LLB 2 is a catchy, colourful holi song that is probably going to be played during the festival on loop. Just as Kumar's song rom his earlier film Waqt, 'Do me a favour, let's play holi'.

And just like you're singing the song in your head with Anu Malik's nasal twang, you won't be able to ignore the horrible auto-tuning in 'Go Pagal'.

But credit where it's due. The song is pretty catchy. Akshay Kumar and Huma Qureshi have some genuine chemistry (who doesn't Akshay have chemistry with, anyway?), plus everyone likes a good Holi song.

The problem lies in the under-utilisation of Raftaar, who is one of the voices of 'Go Pagal'. Here's a rapper with immense potential (his last song is the extremely swaggalicious 'Dhakkad' from Dangal), and a genuinely foot-tapping number ruined by over-production of the music.

Also, here's a genuine question. Why are people drinking alcohol in the film? Haven't they learnt anything from Amitabh Bachchan? Holi = bhaang.

Jolly LLB 2 takes the theme of a common man fighting the system against a societal injustice. In the first film, Arshad Warsi played a lawyer who fought corrupt men in a hit-and-run case.

According the trailer of Jolly LLB 2, Akshay Kumar plays a playful but honest lawyer who fights a murder case.

The film also sees Annu Kapoor, and Sayani Gupta in important roles. Saurabh Shukla reprises his role as a judge in the film. This is the first song that has been released. Jolly LLB 2 releases on 10 Feb, 2017. Watch the song here:
