Arjun Rampal starer Daddy has released a new song called Aala Re Aala which celebrates ganesh chaturthi as the festival is just around the corner. In this song Arun Gawli (Arjun Rampal) can be seen taking his revenge over some of his gangster foes. A Hindi thriller always ticks some boxes such as an action sequence while a cabre is being performed, a ganesh song fueled by energy and killing behinds that. Daddy in it’s treatment looks novel and old at the same time with Rampal seeming extremely fantastic but the film looks as though old wine in a new bottle.
Story of Daddy follows Arun Gulab Gawli over a period of 4 decades with the story told from different point of views. Arun Gawli is one of the biggest name in Mumbai underworld with very many shades to him. To some Gawli is an underworld don while others call him a social activist, now they are two very serious ends of a spectrum. In a making video Arjun revealed that he did not have the rights of Gawli’s life and it wasn’t until the last day of shooting when he got Gawli’s signature on the document.
Ashim Ahluwalia has directed Miss lovely before Daddy and the film was highly acclaimed. Ashim has seen festivals and critical praise with Nawazuddin starer but Daddy is his biggest release so far powered by Rampal’s stardom and strong screen presence. Aale Re Aala is composed by music director duo Sajid Wajid and sung by Wajid. Produced by Arjun Rampal and Rutvij Patel, Daddy will release on 8 September, 2017.
