Movie: This song appeared in 2012 Arbaaz Khan Productions’ super hit comic action flick Dabangg 2 (Brave Heart), produced and directed (debut) by Arbaaz Khan. This movie is a sequel to the 2010 Dabangg. The movie starred Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, late Vinod Khanna, Arbaaz Khan, Prakash Raj, etc.

The story continues from the previous installment, but, the location has shifted to Kanpur. Inspector Chulbul Pandey (Salman Khan) lives with his wife Rajjo (Sonakshi Sinha), brother Makkhi (Arbaaz Khan) and stepfather Prajapati (Vinod Khanna). A little boy is abducted from his school and Chulbul deals with the situation.

The kidnappers are Bachcha’s (Prakash Raj) henchmen. With permission from the commissioner (Manoj Pahwa), Chulbul launches a campaign against this don. One day, Chulbul is invited to a party by Bachcha to placate the police officer by hook or by crook and this song is being sung for entertainment there. Chulbul joins the singer in it.

Song: The music of the song was scored by Sajid-Wajid and the lyrics were penned by Sunder Poppo.

Chutney is a side dish and Fulori is a kind of fritters made with veggies in Bihar, India. In this song, the question, how did the cook make only chutney without fulori, has been asked. The song has been made by just bringing words together just to rhyme. Otherwise, no special meaning can be attributed to the lyrics. This is one of the shorter songs compared with most other songs made all through the existence of Bollywood musicals.

Video: Cinematography is by Aseem Mishra and Mahesh Limaye. Dance choreography is by Ganesh Acharya-Farah Khan-Mudassar Khan-Raju Khan-Radhika Rao-Vijay Sapru-Rajeev Soorti.

The video opens with a few dialogues between Prakash Raj and Salman Khan. The dance is happening on the stage and Salman Khan begins to move his legs in step with the tune of the song. Manoj Pahwa is also dancing to the tune of the song. He joins the dancer on stage and they dance together. Prakash Raj does not like it. The song, soon, peters out and the video ends there.

Artists: The playback has been sung by Mamta Sharma and Wajid Ali and the onscreen performances are by Salman Khan, Prakash Raj and others.

Cultural Influence: This filmi song is a take-off from a Bihari folk song. The song and the artists are fine. The video is watchable for Salman Khan’s antics.
