The song opens with Sonam Kapoor‘s character mumbling, “How can a man be so obsessed with chums?”
Cut to a scenario where some ladies from the village are seen following the age-old tradition of celebrating the commencement of menstruation of a girl, while a few young boys term it as a “test match”. The video also has Akshay’s powerful dialogues from the movie.
‘Sayaani’ is composed by Amit Trivedi, while Kausar Munir has penned the lyrics. Yashita Sharma, Jonita Gandhi, Yashika Sikka and Rani Kaur have sung this beautiful number that celebrates a girl’s first period.
‘PadMan’, directed by R Balki is the maiden production venture of Twinkle Khanna.
Behind every successful man is a woman, goes the oft used and tired cliche. But what if we tell you that the man and woman don’t have to be related but can simply be ‘Hu Ba Hu’ in essence? Well, that’s what the third song from Akshay Kumar-starrer Padman seems to be saying.
The song, shared by Akshay on Thursday morning, traces the hero’s journey and his changing equations with his partner, essayed by Sonam Kapoor. The ‘partner’ is actually his English teacher who shares his vision and dream. The film also features Radhika Apte as Akshay’s wife.
Titled Hu Ba Hu, the song composed and sung by Amit Trivedi also has vocals by Rajiv Sundaresan and Suhas Sawant. It has been penned by Kausar Munir. Akshay plays a character inspired from the real life Menstrual Man of India, Arunachalam Murugananthan. The film shows how he transforms from a naive village man to an innovator who not only provides better and cheaper menstrual hygiene for the women around him but also creates jobs for them. The song’s video shows his journey as Sonam keeps boosting his morale and Akshay slowly realises her concerns for him.
