Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK's A Gentleman seems to be balancing between the sweet and spicy side of its lead, Sidharth Malhotra. However, in the latest song, 'Chandralekha', it is Jacqueline Fernandez who steals the show with her acrobatic skills.

The song, a foot-tapping karaoke number, begins as a regular office party with Malhotra's Gaurav taking to the mic to impress his girlfriend, Kavya (Fernandez).

While Malhotra delivers the charm and shows off his daring side with some snappy footwork, it is Fernandez who takes the song's tempo higher with her pole dance. The chemistry between the two looks quite interesting, and adds to the feel of the song.

The composition by Sachin-Jigar seems all over the place a bit but has enough rhythm to keep you interested.

Some of the verses written by Vayu have a retro feel, and the use of Hinglish is catchy. Vishal Dadlani brings his bullish enthusiasm to the song with Jonita Gandhi adding a sassy touch.

A Gentleman is directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, and stars Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez. The film is set to be released in theatres on 25 August. You can watch the song below, and predict the film's box-office fate here.
