In his latest role, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, a shopper who discovered his talent for golf and awkward turns into an overnight sensation in Ali plays. The September 9 release has been directed by Sohail Khan and co-stars Arbaaz Khan and Amy Jackson. Massy soundtrack featuring his more famous and successful brother is a nod to the movies.
Sajid-Wajid, who have delivered hit songs for several Salman Khan starrers, including Wanted (2009), Dabangg (2010) and Dabangg 2 (2012), have composed the three songs in Freaky Ali.
Din Mein Karengey Jagrata is a disco bhajan, sung by Wajid, Divya Kumar and Swati Sharma and written by. Shabbir Ahmed. It is a standard dance number with loud drumbeats, brass band orchestration and pedestrian lyrics that urge the deejay to turn up the volume.
A bhajan is tucked into the quirky qawwali Ya Ali Murtuza. Wajid, Danish Sabri and Payal Dev sing about looking for the divine beyond places of worship and turn to the streets for a medley of sounds. Traditional musical instruments used in qawwali, such as the harmonium and the tabla, are fused with the drums and cymbals heard during Ganpati processions. The two styles merge into a dramatic track effective for on-screen histrionics.
Speaking on the occasion, Sidharth Arora, Director, Golfing Nation said, “It has been a wonderful experience bringing the World Long Drive Qualifiers to India. At Golfing Nation we want to create the best opportunities for Golf to grow and make the game more accessible to everyone. Our effort is to break the ongoing myth of the game being too financially demanding for a common man to take it up. It was an honour to work with Mr. Sohail Khanon ‘Freaky Ali’. A movie based on Golf in India was never thought of. I am indeed grateful to him for showcasing our passion on the silver screen. We hope that this movie will bring awareness in the public and make golf the next big sport in India”
