The song falls flat with cliched lyrics and slow tempo. Malhotra's dance and bad choreography do not help either.

The makers of A Gentleman: Sundar, Susheel, Risky released the 'Disco Disco' song today. The song, however, is far from one that will make you tap your feet.
The lyrics, penned by Vayu, are poor, with nothing new to offer. From a song titled 'Disco Disco', fans would hope for some foot-tapping disco music from the music director duo Sachin-Jigar. Sadly, they disappoint. There is nothing to rave about the music, it is average at its best. The rhythm of the song is reminiscent of Fine Young Cannibals’ 'She Drives Me Crazy' track but even that does not help to hook you to the song.
Singer Benny Dayal has some popular tracks to his name, most notably the Bang Bang! (2014) title track. Though he is not bad in his effort, he is let down by poor lyrics. Female singer Shirley Setia has managed to overcome this hindrance and her sensuous voice outshines Dayal's in the duet.
Dancing is not Sidharth Malhotra’s forte, adding fuel to the fire is bad choreography. The dance lacks the tempo a disco song deserves. The inept choreography makes the better dancer look average. Jacqueline Fernandez clearly has had to adjust to the slow pace of Malhotra, which pulls the track down. Poor lyrics, poor music, the track is nothing close to a disco number.
Watch the track only if you are a die hard Malhotra or Jacqueline Fernandez fan. A Gentleman is set to be released on 25 August.
