'The Breakup Song' from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil makes no sense; but Ranbir, Anushka have killer moves
Apart from Ranbir and Anushka's crazy dancing in this song from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, also watch out for a cameo by Lisa Haydon.
With lyrics like 'Mere saiiyan ji se aaj maine break up kar liya', and happy, shiny faces dancing at a club as part of movie like Ae Dil Hai Mushkil that celebrates unrequited love — suffice it to say 'The Break Up Song' makes absolutely no sense.
Remember the snippets from Karan Johar's film's trailer where Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma are seen gallivanting around London on a scooter and having a ball? The tone of this song is more on those lines.
Yes, we get the irony of the song, and it's only a good thing that Dharma Productions is putting a message out there that break ups need to be celebrated, but at least celebrate with a catchy song?
What works for the song is Ranbir and Anushka. There's really nothing these two can't do. They have the expressions, they have the dance moves, they're able to sell their goofiness to us (the viewers) with as much passion as they showed in the more intense songs from the film.
Speaking of which, the biggest disadvantage of 'The Breakup Song' is that it comes after three absolutely stellar tracks from the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil soundtrack. The title song (which Arijit Singh owns), 'Bulleya' and 'Channa Mereya' are all miles ahead of this one.
Oh, did we mention that Badshaah has a rap verse in this song? (Well, of course he does, this is a Dharma film).
We also spotted Lisa Haydon in the song. Surprise surprise!
