Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s highly anticipated movie Padmaavat released recently and took the entire nation by storm. Amidst rave reviews from both the critics and the audience, the makers of the movie have released a new song titled “Khalibali.” Featuring Ranveer Singh as the brutal Alauddin Khilji, this high on energy number has caught everyone’s eye.
Filled with Arabic innuendos, Khalibali is totally owned by Ranveer’s madness & killer moves. This song will surely bring back the “Malhari” hangover that became a rage after Bajirao Mastani. This time, he has pushed the envelope further. A pure treat for Ranveer Singh fans, this song will be remembered as one of his career best performances.
The audio of the song is a winner. It is another classic by acclaimed lyricist A M Turaz who has also written songs like “Aayat” from Bajirao Mastani and “Tera Zikr” from Guzaarish. Playback singers Shivam Pathak and Shail Hada have added magic to the song. The power in their voice will pump up your adrenaline.
The video is a treat to eyes. The choreography of the song deserves a special mention. It has lifted the song to another level raising the bar for choreography in Indian cinema. It scores a perfect 100 on 100 and makes for an entertaining watch. “Khalibali” deserves that you drop everything you are doing right now and watch it, at least a couple of times on loop.
Talking about the movie, Padmaavat has already crossed ₹100 crore in four days raking in ₹114 crores. The movie showcases the grandeur of Rajput royalty and highlights their famed courage. It also brings forth brilliant performances by the lead cast and includes a first time anti-hero portrayal by Ranveer Singh. The period-drama highlights the Rajput way of life in the kingdom of Chittor in 1303 A.D. The rulers, Maharawal Ratan Singh and Rani Padmaavati find their world turning upside down after the invasion of the ruthless Sultan Alauddin Khilji.
