And it is finally here. Haven’t we all been waiting for Laila Main Laila song since the time it was announced? We got a glimpse of it in the trailer of Raees, and boy did the internet go crazy. Fans were gushing over Sunny Leone’s one second long appearance in the trailer, and that is exactly the reason why the song has been released before its intended schedule. Shah Rukh Khan and Sunny Leone in one frame – now that’s like the sexiest on-screen pair ever. In an exclusive conversation with BollywoodLife Sunny talked about how she can never thank Shah Rukh for the opportunity. “It was absolutely amazing working with him. I can’t thank him enough for this opportunity. To be able to have somebody to give you that chance and take a chance on you and put you in their film of this level is big for me,” she said.
Laila Main Laila is a rehash of a hit 80’s number from the film Qurbani. The original song featured Zeenat Aman and was composed by the dynamic music-composer duo Kalyan-Anand. Laila Main Laila brings a touch 0f 2016 music to the hit melody, without butchering it. Not just the audio, the video of the number is fabulous as well.
Everything. Laila Main Laila might just turn out to be the most successful dance number of the year. Sunny Leone not only looks hot as Laila, but she also dances just perfectly. Her scenes with Shah Rukh Khan are really sexy. She is trying to seduce SRK in the song, and it doesn’t get hotter than this. SRK looks intimidating, but handsome AF, throughout the video. No wonder Laila fell for those brooding looks.
The choreography of the song is pure kitsch and fans will love re-creating it. There is no particular hook step but the groovy moves keep you hooked throughout. Bosco-Ceaser know the pulse of the Indian audience. They know exactly what gets the Indians grooving. After Kala Chashma, Laila Main Laila is going to be yet another accomplishment to their name.
Ram Sampath’s composition is killer. Pawni Pandey has crooned the number, and this is her perfect launch pad. She has sung a few numbers for a few films in the past, but Laila Main Laila is going to put her on the map. The beats are going take over you, and make this song perfect to blast through the speakers.
There is not enough of Shah Rukh Khan and Sunny Leone together in the song. And that is pretty much all that is off about this song.
