Fevicol se – Uvie/Mamta/Keerthi/Shadab/Wajid – Sajid-Wajid | Dabangg 2 (2012)


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) stays 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. Bachcha’s brother Genda (Deepak Dobriyal) tries to kidnap a girl, on whom he had an eye, from her wedding pandal. Chulbul kills him to save the girl and Bachcha is furious with Chulbul. Bachcha goes to the commissioner and threatens dire consequences.

Makkhi’s wife Nirmala (Mahie Gill) visits them for 2 days and tells him that she would be going for a teacher’s training course to earn a living. Makkhi realizes his responsibility and joins his brother’s police station as a writer (he takes down all the problems of the people, who came to give a complaint). Chulbul is happy and asks his brother to join him in enjoying the night with him. This is the song they sing with a dancer (Kareena Kapoor).

Song: The music of the song was scored by Sajid-Wajid and the lyrics were penned by Sajid Ali, Wajid Ali, Ashraf Ali.

The gist of the song is, the girl praises her own style and wants her beloved to stick her photo on his chest with Fevicol!

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 the song beginning in the background as the shots of houses are seen with prostitutes waiting for their customers. Kareena Kapoor begins the song and dance as 2 girls run toward the back of the stage. Salman Khan and Arbaaz Khan come dancing with a group of other men.

Arbaaz Khan begins to dance. Then, the focus shifts to Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor. Soon, the song ends and so does to video as Arbaaz Khan utters, “Oh, no!”

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

Cultural Influence: This is a typically filmi item song performed in a brothel. There was a similar item song in the previous Dabangg where the word Zandu Balm was used. Here the word Fevicol has been used. Given the type of dances being churned out by Bollywood, this song is nothing as far as vulgarity is concerned except perhaps Kareena Kapoor and other girls’ revealing dresses. I felt it very normal. The song and the artists are fine. The video is watchable for the same, particularly Arbaaz Khan’s comic dance steps.
