Move over Kolaveri Di and make way for Agent Vinod’s Pyaar Ki Pungi,the song that’s created mass hysteria as soon as it was released.
The popular item song from Illuminati’s Agent Vinod composed by the ever-so-versatile Pritam Chakraborty is trending all over and making its way atop all charts thanks to its comic, cheeky and catchy tone.
Explains composer Pritam “One of the basic reasons of liking this number is the fact that it is a fun filled song. The song plays in the background during one of the scenes in Agent Vinod. Amitabh Bhattacharya came up with this fantastic hook ‘Pyar ki pungi’ which I am sure could be the next popular phrase among the youngsters” Adding that “Pungi is a musical instrument which is predominantly audible in the song. Hence,the name. The shehnai piece was also extensively used which was later layered with trumpet. So all in all, it is an out an out entertaining and crazy song”.
