The hot teaser for the action song 'Bandook Meri Laila' had already got the fans vouching for this number from A Gentleman. The entire song was launched today, 16 August, with its leads Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez in attendance.

Composed by Sachin-Jigar, the song has a catchy EDM (Electronic Dance Music) rhythm that makes it impossible to ignore. Ash King delivers the suave Punjabi-English lyrics in a slightly shrill voice, but it still fits sonically with the overall composition. The composers allow the arrangement to build slowly before emphasising the effect with the catchy refrain to 'Bandook Meri Laila'.

Sidharth Malhotra does a decent job with his turn as a rapper. A gravelly voice, added by Raftaar's back up vocals and lyrics, make his rap track sound as deadly as the visuals on screen. The sensuality of Jacqueline Fernandez, cut in with the high octane action visuals make the video quite engrossing. The lyrics by Vayu are a motley mix of languages making them sound even more hip.

A Gentleman is directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK. The film stars also stars Suniel Shetty and is set to be released on 25 August.
