Putting together a bunch of amateur hijackers, a drug addled DJ and a couple of rowdy travellers on a plane is already a fantastic plot for Akarsh Khurana's comedy, High Jack. The film's second song, 'Kripya Dhyaan De', ups the element of fun with its fast-paced rap by SlowCheeta.

The song captures the absurdity, recklessness, and the devil-may-care attitude that underlines the comedy, starring Sumeet Vyas and Mantra Mugdh.

The song's tagline 'Kripya Dhyaan De' plays on the on-flight instructions often given out by the air hostesses during a flight. The song takes off from the announcement, with SlowCheeta bringing his own free flowing rap verses into the composition.

Composed by the rapper with Shwetang Sarkar, the score is packed with the right beats, that are pumped up to meet the pauses and syntax of the rap verse.

The rap itself is a surprisingly cool work. Unlike usual rap portions in songs, which constitute to a 30 second interruption to a disco song, SlowCheeta lets it rip throughout 'Kripya Dhyaan De'.

The flow, and rhythm of his syntax is matched by the content making it an engrossing composition. The 30 second free-verse section in the middle helps to raise the tempo of the song too.

High Jack is directed by Akarsh Khurana, and also features Sonalli Seygall, and Kumud Mishra among others. The film is set to be released on 20 April.
