After Kaavaan Kaavaan and Meer-E-Kaarwan, Lucknow Central’s upcoming song is titled as Teen Kabootar. Composed in the most unconventional manner, the makers have not used any musical instrument except for a guitar to compose the tune, as they created rhythms through body percussions and sounds from common equipment found in jails like brooms, bins, pots, pans, and combs etc.
Adding to the quirkiness the song is picturized on the spirited band of Lucknow Central performing for the first time before the tyrannical jailor Ronit Roy. The catchy lines along with the peppy music will have everyone humming their new favorite song – “Ek Kabootar, Do Kabootar, Teen Kabootar!” Sung by Mohit Chauhan and Divya Kumar, the latest track is composed by Arjunna Harjaie and penned by Kumaar. Listen to the track here:
