Irrfan Khan will be next seen in the satirical entertainer, Hindi Medium, where he plays a not so English literate father to a young girl. Hindi Medium, that is directed by Saket Chaudhary, has Pakistani actress Saba Qamar playing his wife. The movie is about how the parents, played by Irrfan and Saba, do their best to get admission for their daughter into the best English medium school, however their own schooling cause hindrance in the process. The movie is a clear social commentary on how a kid can’t get admission in a good school because their parents couldn’t afford to get into one when they were young.
Now you may think a movie like this may not have scope for romance and romantic songs. Well, you are wrong, because how can Bollywood make a movie without romance! So here we have Hoor, which in Urdu means someone who is gorgeous and beautiful, a song that is composed by Sachin-Jigar and sung by Atif Aslam. It’s great to hear Atif in a Bollywood song after some time, ever since the furore over the Uri attacks broke out. And he does a beautiful job, rendering this melody.
As for the picturisation, the song is about how a young Irrfan Khan is obsessed by the beauty of a young Saba, both played by different, younger actors, and how he follows her around. Later, the song shows their romance after marriage, this time with Irrfan and Saba playing their roles.
Here’s the song…
Hindi Medium also stars Deepak Dobriyal. It is scheduled to release on May 12 along with Sarkar 3 and Meri Pyaari Bindu.
