Much awaited Punjabi film Mr & Mrs 420 Returns is all set to be released on August 15, but prior to that, its makers have been steadily releasing the various songs from its soundtrack online. The latest one out of the lot is a bhangra number called Att Chukni. It’s a dance song that has been sung by Ranjit Bawa, and also features the other two members of the film’s main cast, Jassie Gill and Karamjit Anmol.
Att Chukni takes place during a wedding and starts off with Jassie and friends showcasing their bhangra moves. Their dance is interrupted when Ranjit Bawa enters the hall, and starts owning the dance floor himself. This for some reason makes Jassie’s character uncomfortable, but he still continues shaking a leg.
Towards the end of the video, we see Jassie dancing with a ghunghat around his head. Seeing this, his friend starts shooting pictures of him, and perhaps this is where the film’s major twist comes into the picture. If you don’t know, Mr & Mrs 420 Returns has Jassie and his friend’s character dressing in drag to overcome an obstacle in their lives.
Coming back to Att Chukni, it’s a pretty passable song due to the lack of anything noteworthy. The singing style of Ranjit Bawa, the overused bhangra beats and the overall vibe are all very generic. However, it does manage to create an atmosphere suited for Punjabi weddings, which is a good thing, considering the song takes place during a wedding sequence in the film.
The original Mr & Mrs 420 was released back in 2014, and had marked the acting debut of Jassie Gill. Following that, he continued his music career, but was also seen in a number of other Punjabi films. These include Dil Vil Pyaar Vyaar, Mundeyan Ton Bachke Rahin, Oh Yaara Ainvayi Ainvayi Lut Gaya, Dildariyaan, Channo Kamli Yaar Di and Sargi.
This year, he will also be seen making his Bollywood debut with the film Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi which stars, Diana Penty, Sonakshi Sinha, Jimmy Sheirgill and Ali Fazal. This film is scheduled to be released on August 24. This means it’ll come only a week after Mr & Mrs 420 Returns.
