BANKCHOR PULLS OFF THE ULTIMATE CHORI – STEALS DHOOM STARS
Is there anything left for Riteish Deshmukh to steal after stealing movie posters, movie trailers and interviews of his fellow actors? It turns out that the Bank Chor lead actor was waiting to unveil his last big chori at the very end – Riteish has managed to steal from YRF’s iconic trilogy, Dhoom!
In the last song of the film, Jai Baba Bank Chor, Riteish can be seen dancing along with Dhoom stars Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Katrina Kaif, Aishwarya Rai, John Abraham, Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra inside the actual footage from the Dhoom series. Coincidentally, managing to pull off this miraculous feat is also the reason behind the title of the song: Jai Baba Bank Chor indeed!
With Jai Baba Bank Chor, the completely mental marketing campaign of Bank Chor peaks with the ‘chori ka gaana’ showing that the Bank Chors can perhaps steal everything, but suck at doing it too well.
Sung by chartbuster specialist Nakash Aziz, composed by ‘Tashreef’ composer Rochak Kohli and written by Gautam Govind Sharma, the song ‘Jai Baba Bank Chor’ has catchy lyrics, catchy music as well as eye-catching visuals, so it’s anyone’s guess that it’s going to make some DHOOM on the charts! (We really, really hope so, at least)
The wackiest tribute to a film ever done in Bollywood, this music video does betray the budget constraints of Bank Chor since they couldn’t afford to shoot with the actual stars or on such massive sets. But the team only hopes that no one notices that given that there are Katrina Kaif and Aishwarya Rai in the video.
Says Riteish Deshmukh, “After John, Hrithik and Aamir, I always felt like the next logical decision for Dhoom was casting me in it. Instead, I was cast in Bank Chor. So ‘Jai Baba Bank Chor’ makes me feel as if I’m part of the iconic Dhoom trilogy in some way at least. So I’d really like to thank Y-Films for making this dream come true. Kinda. Maybe.”
Says composer Rochak Kohli “Tashreef as well as its cups version have become big hits among the audience so I am really excited to see their response to this track. It’s the kind of song you can’t help but start dancing to so I hope it becomes the next big dhinchak festival dance track.”
Self-confessedly India’s STUPIDEST comic thriller, Bank Chor, directed by Bumpy and produced by Ashish Patil, is all set to embarrass its makers when it releases in theaters on June 16. The trailer of the film is out on YouTube.com/YFilms. Please watch it. Pretty please.
