‘Fukrey Returns’ has found its ‘Ambarsariya’ in ‘Ishq De Fanniyar’

Directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, ‘Fukrey Returns’ will be released on December 8.

Mrighdeep Singh Lamba’s Fukrey was one of 2013s sleeper hits. Made with a host of fresh faces at the time plus Richa Chadda, who was fresh from the success of Gangs of Wasseypur (2012), the modestly budgeted comedy caper went on to mint money. The movie’s success put the spotlight on its song Ambarsariya, sung by Sona Mahapatra and composed by Ram Sampath. The song became a smash hit. Unplugged and cover versions over the years lengthened its shelf life.

The sequel Fukrey Returns is scheduled for a December 8 release. Its soundtrack, clocking at 26 minutes and consisting of eight songs, is a brisk, light affair. In the midst of fast-paced tracks, laced with the trendiest trappings of club music, lies Ishq De Fanniyar, which is pegged to repeat the success of Ambarsariya.

Composed by Sharib-Toshi, the romantic song has two versions: one, sung by the composers themselves, and another by rising playback singer Jyotica Tangri. The melody is strong, the instrumentation and production light, and the singers have an easy job carrying forward a good composition.

Tangri sings her version with gusto, while Shabir and Toshi’s version is comparatively subdued. Ishq De Fanniyar has a good chance to make it to year-end charts and beyond in a year where Bollywood has seen more musical duds than successes.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

With the distinctive placement of the rear cameras, this phone makes a great subject for a photographic series.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
