“Aayi Aayi Bhoot police”, the hook line from the teaser of title track from the much-awaited horror-comedy Bhoot Police plays on repeat in your mind long after the 28-second clip ends. Featuring Saif Ali Khan, Arjun Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez who are seen bringing on their swag and quirky dance moves, the peppy and groovy hip-hop beats of the catchy, blink-and-miss glimpse teaser hooks you on for the release of the full song. The teaser released today by Tips Industries Ltd. In association with 12th Street Entertainment. The film also features Yami Gautam and Javed Jaffrey in key roles.
Goes without saying that fans of the genre and the stars can’t wait for the full song to drop soon.
Watch the teaser here.
Composer-singer Vishal Dadlani, who has a rugged and very hip-hop style vocal texture well-suited for fusion tracks, has crooned the song with the very versatile Sunidhi Chauhan, to the tune set by Sachin-Jigar. You could expect a blend of Bollywood style music album set in Western notes. With the rapper Mellow D’s, who has also penned the lyrics of the song along with Kumaar, rapping in the song, you can expect some extra spunk. The teaser hints that the song will helm the central idea of ‘Bhoot Police’, of how two fake ghost hunters have to get real to oust a ghost as matters get serious in the eponymous Pavan Kripalani directorial. Remo D' Souza has done the choreography.
Bhoot Police marks the first onscreen collaboration between the Kaalakaandi actor and the Ishaqzaade actor and the second collaboration of Saif and Jacqueline after Race 2. The premise has Yami being spooked by an evil spirit with Saif and Arjun playing brothers and ghost hunters, who cash in on the widespread belief and superstition (or not) about the presence of ghosts and other paranormal phenomena. Capering their way on, with the quintessential Saif-style poker-faced hilarity and disbelief in spectres and the spooky as the balance to Arjun Kapoor’s belief in the existence of all things supernatural in the trailer, you could expect a serio-comic laughter-cum-horror story like the successful precedent, the Rajkumar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor-starrer Stree helmed by Amar Kaushik that arguably catapulted the hitherto unexplored horror-comedy genre in Hindi cinema. But the fun is to get scarier in Bhoot Police when the ghostbusters find real ghosts doing a peek-a-boo on them.
Bhoot Police is set to release exclusively on Disney+Hotstar on September 17.
