The song opens with a fun opening verse and then launches into club mode with the party beats. When the song speeds up the tempo, it sounds very party-like which enhances the danceable mood of the song “It’s an out n out groovy track which I expect will play at clubs and will be cranked up in cars. It’s a carefree sound. Just “letting all go” kind of vibe. I’ve given it my best shot & made it sound as fresh & youthful, in terms of melody, lyrics n sound, as I can.”
Elaborating about the song, Amaal Mallik says “There are a lot of versions of this song but nothing with a club vibe & something the youth can just loosen themselves to. The mukhda I composed went into a hook which has the word “Gulaabi” in it. So from there the idea of having “Gulaabi Aakhein Jo Teri Dekhi” instead in the hook came from Bhushan sir and Shikha Sharma my EP. The phrase has a nostalgia trip attached to it and so I went ahead with the idea they proposed but kept the rest of the song original.”
“I’ve kept the production very new age, something that has never been done before so extensively & left it to the audience to decide. The audience will hear Tulsi Kumar in a different voice which will be quite a surprise for her fans n followers. My assistant Yash Narvekar, and I have taken charge of the male vocals and he has a solo version in his voice as well” adds Amaal Mallik.
‘Gulabi 2.0’ sees Sonakshi Sinha aka Noor undergo a transformation of sorts from the innocent workaholic to a crazy party hopper. In her own words, she goes from “seedhi Savitri” to “tedhi Savitri” as she downs a few shots and dances with complete abandon. The song also features Shibani Dandekar, Kanan Gill and Purab Kohli.
It has set YouTube on fire with a whopping amount of views in less than 3 days.
Directed by Sunhil Sippy, the film is based on the novel ‘Karachi, You’re Killing Me!’ Noor’ is all set to hit theatres on April 21.
This is Mallik’s solo soundtrack after the very successful score of MS Dhoni.
