Guru Randhawa reboots ‘Patola’ for Irrfan Khan’s ‘Blackmail’
Written by Shubham Dwivedi

Irrfan Khan starrer ‘Blackmail’ is riding high on the songs of Punjabi singers who are quite well known in Indian pop culture now a days. Couple of days ago makers of the film launched a song by singer Baadshah which was a promotional one and another one of those is the reboot of popular Punjabi song ‘Patola’. This is the song which gave Guru Randhawa initial limelight in his career and here he is milking it for a film which stars Irrfan Khan, Song video showcases random shots of Irrfan and his wife’s marriage in the film which are filmed on the most fake wedding set of all time.

They really should not have used a good camera to shoot this sequence because the depth of lens is clearly projecting lack of any expenditure on the set and it does seem like a bunch of black studio clothing in the back of the frame. This may also very well be a promotional song in the film or a not of use dream sequence of some kind because it does not fit in the narrative of tonality in a dark humor film.

T-Series has taken it upon themselves to single handedly destroy the film music in India as they are so obviously rebooting the old hits in to new films as if no one can possibly notice the patters. They re-used Himesh Reshamiya’s early 2000’s hits in Hate Story IV and also ‘Mundiya’ in Baaghi 2, which has been playing in the weddings for as far as one can remember. Patola will only help the film in terms of spreading awareness because apparently north Indians like to listen to same songs over and again or at least biggest music label in the country thinks so and they might be getting results hence they are carrying on with the plan.
