Lottery laga de maula (Lottery)

Our film industry is strange. Here anybody becomes anybody. Actor becomes director, director becomes singer, and singer becomes actor. After Aamir Khan and Farhan Akhtar's change of field, it's Aapka Abhijeet Sawant, India's first 'Idol' who is turning a hero from a singer.

But that's not all that's strange. Here comes more to that. Abhijeet, being a singer does sing songs for his own movie, but what comes as interesting to me is that it's Sukhwinder Singh who sings the title song of Abhijeet's acting debut, Lottery.

The song, lottery laga de maula is a song that has Sukhwinder Singh as it's OSP, that is, it's only selling point. It's a mediocre song with a limited life which would find it difficult to survive had Sukhwinder not been the singer. Now that he is there and that he has sung the whatever-it-is with quite an energy, i'm getting a feeling that the song might click. Basically, the main tune of the song is a bit catchy, and Sukhwinder's voice may help the cause of the song. Lyrics, however, are quite hopeless and there is hardly anything worth thinking about. Still, somehow i think that the song might find it's share popularity due to the singer of Golden Globe winner, Oscar nominated song. Fancy words for Sukhwinder Singh and Jai ho. :)
