Laxmmi Bomb song Burjkhalifa: A peppy, pointless number

The makers of Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani-starrer Laxmmi Bomb has dropped the film’s first song, “Burjkhalifa”, and the Punjabi track can be best described as a peppy, but pointless number.

Composed by Shashi-Dj Khushi, who share vocals with Nikhita Gandhi, and penned by Gagan Ahuja, “Burjkhalifa” joins the ever-growing list of Punjabi songs in Bollywood films. And like many such songs, it has English lyrics, pop-culture references (case in point, Kylie Jenner’s fashion) and a catchy hookline.

The video, however, is barely passable. With an Akshay Kumar in a Punjabi song, one expects arresting visuals but “Burjkhalifa” is a display of poor, aimless choreography.
