The new Bajirao Mastani song, Pinga, is out. Eros International has launched the much-awaited song featuring a dance face-off between the two leading ladies of the film, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, on their official website.
While both Priyanka and Deepika are graceful dancers, all eyes are sure to be on Priyanka in this song. Not only is she the more emotive of the two but she seems to carry off the Marathi look with absolute ease. Deepika, on the other hand, seems to be displaying some restraint, proving that she is dancing only for her man, Bajirao.
The song is a celebration by two women performing for a man that both of them are in love with. The song, however, lacks the intense energy that Lavani songs are known for.
Pinga also seems to be giving a hint about the plot behind. It appears as if it is a welcome song for Mastani after she gets married to Bajirao, as Kashibai is seen trying to introduce her to the world of Marathi celebration.
That being said, Remo D'souza's choreography is perfect for the setting. One look at Pinga and you can be certain that it will be compared to the iconic Madhuri Dixit-Aishwarya Rai dance face-off in Dola Re Dola - from Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Devdas (2002). Pinga, however, manages to hold on its own, with its unique flavour.
