Ever since the trailer of Aara Jain starrer Hello Charlie dropped, viewers were seen playing the central role of a gorilla in the film. On Friday, the team released their first song “One to One One to Dance” and from its look, we would not be surprised if the cute animals play the lead. The two friends have a blast in the song, shaking steps with Aadhaar.
“Ek Do Ek Do Dance” is a typical film dance number, topped with some ‘Mumbai’ lingo. Set in a dhaba, Other’s Charlie and his gorilla Toto perform among a crowd while watching the song. In fact, everyone has to be happy, and on some occasions dance with them. Only Bollywood movies can normalize a life-size gorilla dance on the street, right?
The song, sung by Naqsh Aziz and composed by Tanishq Bagchi, has a catchy tune but fails to leave a long lasting impact. Ganesh Acharya’s choreography is also nothing to write home about. However, what is the unmatched chemistry between Charlie and Toto, and we wonder what the two will do in the film.
Commenting on his association with Hello Charlie, music director Tanishq Bagchi said in a statement, “It was a delightful experience working with the cast and crew of Hello Charlie. When I was told the situation for the song, I was extremely thrilled to create a track that captures the funniest antics between a man and a monkey, with the film’s mood and vibes unfolding. Vayu has done a wonderful job with the song, it is hilarious and lends itself to a fully functional tune. “One to One One Two” is a song that is close to my heart and I hope that this song will be special for our audience as well. “
Directed by Pankaj Saraswat, Hello Charlie is an adventure comedy, with the protagonist Charlie (Jain) tasked with transporting Toto, a gorilla from Mumbai to Diu. The trailer also gives a glimpse of how a billionaire (Jackie Shroff) survives in gorilla costumes and will later make a series of errors. Charlie and Gorilla will also encounter some hilarious characters along the way.
Starring by Excel Entertainment, Hello Charlie also stars Jackie Shroff, debutant Shloka Pandit, Elnaz Noroji and Rajpal Yadav. It is set to premiere on April 9 on Amazon Prime Video.
