Raabta title track: Deepika Padukone is a scene stealer in this reprise version! – LISTEN: The sizzling ‘Raabta’ title track is OUT NOW!
Deepika Padukone in Raabta
After the mixed reception of the Raabta trailer and the cautiously positive reviews for Ik Vaari Aa, the film hits its mark with the release of the title track. The Raabta title track is a reworking of the song of the same name from Dinesh Vijan’s 2012 movie, Agent Vinod.
We first got a glimpse of the song when it was played in the trailer to highlight Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon’s love story. In the trailer, the song was soft and light, and sounded like a pleasant listen. But the Raabta we have now completely blew us away by turning into a euro-pop inspired club banger.
The song starts off slow and builds up to unexpectedly become a synth-pop dance track, much like the numerous songs we hear from DJs around the world. The song manages to use its tempo change to its advantage as it denotes the tone of the film itself, going from sweet and loving to fast and heavy.
The song’s video features a performance from Deepika Padukone. Padukone is stunning in a black slit dress as she performs the song at a party where Kriti’s Saira and main antagonist Jim Sarbh’s Zak are the star couple. Sushant’s Shiv also is in attendance to keep an eye on his lady love. While the song’s video doesn’t touch on the reincarnation plot the trailer depicted, the video is clearly Deepika’s to own, who shows off her dance moves and style. She is the scene stealer in this one and stuns everyone with her oomph. The song is sure to be a fixture on everyone’s summer playlists.
