‘Patakha Guddi’ from ‘Highway’ by A.R. Rahman released

The first song of Imtiaz Ali’s Highway, Patakha Guddi, has been released by Disney UTV and T-series.

The music of the film has been composed by Oscar-award winning music composer A.R. Rahman and ever since the film’s trailer came out, all eyes and ears have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the soundtrack.

Patakha Guddi, written by Irshad Kamil and sung by the Nooran sisters from Panjab, is picturised on Highway’s leading lady, Alia Bhatt, who plays the role of Veera in the film. As she traverses through the roads of northern India, Veera gradually comes into her own and lets loose. Patakha Guddi celebrates her free spirit.

Alia Bhatt shooting for Highway in Ferozpur,  PunjabSays Imtiaz: “Patakha Guddi is about freedom. It is also about purity and wildness. Who better than the wild children of Panjabi music – Sultana and Jyoti Nooran – to sing the track? After Rockstar, it was great to collaborate with Rahman Sir again and we have tried to keep the Highway album melodious, simple and heartfelt.”

Adds lyricist Irshad Kamil: “Patakha Guddi gives the fragrance of Punjab with its piousness and free spirit. The lyrics take the flight according to the growth of Veera’s (Alia) character in the film. The song has raw energy in its composition, singing and even in the choice of words.”

Highway, produced by Window Seat Films and presented by Sajid Nadiadwala, will be released worldwide and in UK cinemas by UTV Motion Pictures on 21st February 2014.

The music of the film will be available on T-Series.

‘Highway Diaries’…of landslides on the way to Tabo

Highway Diaries_Tabo2

Films capture journeys but in Imtiaz Ali’s much-awaited Highway, the journey has made the film.

Presented by Sajid Nadiadwala and starring Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda, the film traverses six states of north India and captures the landscape of the different regions as it goes along.

Highway Diaries are short video snippets that capture the journey of the film and all the exciting experiences that the cast and crew had during its making.

In the latest episode of Highway Diaries, the crew of the film is seen driving through the narrow and perilous roads of the Himachal with continuous landslides, on their way to Tabo. Suddenly a big stone falls from the mountains and smashes the wind screen of one of their cars, forcing them to stop and wait for the machines to clear the road.

The dangers of the road are overshadowed by the stunning panorama that these higher reaches of Himachal offers. The video diary ends with Alia Bhatt delivering her lines that rightly describe the breathtaking location, “Tumne kabhi bataya nahi ki duniya aisi bhi hai, unbelievable!”
