Kalank song Tabaah Ho Gaye: A typical Madhuri Dixit-Saroj Khan dance number

MUMBAI:The latest song from Kalank titled “Tabaah Ho Gaye” is out. Picturised on Bollywood’s Dhak Dhak girl Madhuri Dixit, it has been choreographed by Saroj Khan and Remo D’Souza. Singer Shreya Ghoshal has lent her voice to the Pritam composition.

The two-minute long video has Madhuri yearning for love. The choreographers Remo and Saroj have exploited the actor’s dancing skills to the hilt, and after watching the song, we are reminded of all the songs where the dancing diva of Bollywood donned ghungroos and put her best dancing foot forward. The grandeur of the song is on par with all the other songs of the movie. The composition, however, remains a damp squib.

Giving details about the song, Madhuri told IANS, “The song comes at a very poignant time in the narration when the backstories of each character are unfolding. The song is a quite defining moment in the story.” She also described the song as “very emotional, poised and nicely choreographed.”

Madhuri Dixit and Saroj Khan’s association dates back to hit numbers like “Ek Do Teen”, “Choli Ke Peeche”, “Dhak Dhak Karne Laga” and “Maar Daala.” It was these songs which established Madhuri’s position in the Hindi film industry as an ace dancer.

Talking about her association with Saroj Khan, Madhuri said, “Saroj Ji is one of the choreographers I have collaborated with who goes beyond the surface of lyrics of a song when she choreographs. In cinema, we tend to create steps keeping the camera angle in mind. But Saroj Ji doesn’t limit the dance in physical movements. She finds a spiritual aspect and works on expressions. She knows how to make a woman look graceful and beautiful through a dance.”

Earlier, the makers released three other songs, “Kalank Nahi Ishq Hai”, “Ghar More Pardesiya” and “First Class” from the movie and all the tracks were received well by the audience.
