Sukhwinder Singh – Bismil

Singer Sukhwinder Singh, famed for singing the award-winning song Chaiyya Chaiyya [clip] from Dil Se… and the global hit Jai Ho [clip] from Slumdog Millionaire (and the pumping Chak De India! [song]), is in charge of the first song released with a video from Vishal Bhardwaj’s third Shakespearean desi adaptation, Haider [Trailer], following the release of the lyrics for Aao Na [song].

There’s obviously a lot of good stuff going on this short clip, starting from Vishal’s music and Gulzar’s lyrics… even translated sound good. Then there’s Shahid Kapoor’s dancing, and there’s Tabu slapping him as the cherry on top.

I guess I gotta get going on Kaminey and a re-read of Hamlet. Though, is it me only? I prefer seeing Shakespeare being performed than read it.

At time of posting, Aao Na is the only song available on iTunes under Vishal’s page, so I guess that’s something to work on the next time they release a clip. What happens to the people that like the song IN the moment they listen to it? It’s gotta be available, right?

For the rest, they do great~
