The most eagerly awaited song of the album –  Balam Pichkari. Before the songs were composed the director and composer came out in public and said there will be a song on Holi, which will give the flavour of this colourful festival and nostalgic about Holi songs from 1980s-90s. Much to their words this song starts with an old women voice giving a festival feel. Soon the music hits with Shalmali Kholgade singing in a youthful fashion. Listen to this song you will accept Shalmali Kholgade voice is so young and energetic; you will instantly fall in love with her voice. Vishal Dadlani’s vocals blends along with her voice beautifully. Vishal’s voice gives you some vibes and soon put you on your feet. The music is lively, entertaining and colourful. Music director Pritam has used the right mix of tunes in this song which give romantic and playful feeling. Amitabh’s lyrics is rhyming & rhythmic. It will be interesting to watch the visual as Ranbir and Deepika’s chemistry might make this song top of the chart and might turn out to be song of the year.  One thing for sure you will feel after hearing this song is, to have the Holi festival.
Shalmali Kholgade sensational voice, Ranbir-Deepika’s holi dance chemistry might be the USP for this song.

Song  of Colours!
