'Kalle Kalle' review: Sachin-Jigar delivers a dull song this time
The makers of Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui have released another song as the movie is nearing its release date. Titled Kalle Kalle, the track features Ayushmann Khurrana and Vaani Kapoor. The sad song does not manage to invoke any emotions, which might suggest the reason behind its low views online. You can check out the number on the T-Series official YouTube channel. Here's our review.
The Punjabi tune doesn't manage to fulfill the expectations
The track, crooned by Priya Saraiya along with music director Sachin-Jigar, is a dull number. Though it has deep meaningful Punjabi lines written by Saraiya, it still sounds ordinary. However, you won't be able to ignore the presence of sarangi, guitar, and flute. They sound pleasing throughout the track. Overall, Sachin and Jigar, who have also composed the song, disappoint this time.
The emotional track also carries a flashback element in it
The 2.46-minute-long video starts with Kapoor making Khurrana realize the gravity of their situation. Both of them are going through the same emotion of heartbreak and misunderstanding. Next, you see a flashback where the two are seen riding bicycles in a park. Khurrana's expressions are on point, but it feels like Kapoor is struggling with her lines. It's difficult to get what she says.

The tune seems like an extension of a 'Ghajini' song
Remember Kaise Mujhe Tu Mil Gayi song from Aamir Khan starrer Ghajini? Sung by Benny Dayal and Shreya Ghoshal, the track had a similar alaap style. However, that song was a superhit number composed by AR Rahman. It still carries a high emotional value. Coming back to Kalle Kalle, it looks like the song comes at an important point in the film.
Hope the track takes the story ahead in the film
The Abhishek Kapoor-directorial explores a rarely touched subject of transgender in a film. As far as the track is concerned, it has around five lakh views on YouTube and is not worth comparing to Tumbe Te Zumba (from the same movie) that has 17 million views. Verdict: The song and the music video, both get 2.5 stars out of 5.
