The song is composed by Shashwat Sachdev and sung by Neha Kakkar, Romy, Surya Ragunaathan and Shashwat Sachdev.

Since the high over Sonam Kapoor's wedding has not yet died down, it seems an apt time for the makers of Veere Di Wedding to release the second song from the movie, 'Bhangra Ta Sajda'. A rollicking entertainer, the song is a take on the very popular Punjabi wedding song (of the same name), with a very modern, Mary Jane twist to the composition.

The song is set to the scene of a wedding sangeet, with the guests and the bridesmaids going wild. As the two parties of the groom and the bride get down on the dance floor, it starts to look like a true blue Punjabi wedding. While the song does not have much of choreography to deal with, it has enough of colour to make it visually catchy. Drunk relatives, a few acrobatic dancers, and a complimentary foreigner complete the typical wedding song.

The lyrics, written by Gaurav Solanki, are the kicker though. With enough references to weed and getting high thrown in, the composition lays down the law that 'no one gives a damn'. It would seem a brave, rebellious stance, if not for appearing a little forced.

The composition by Shashwat Sachdev is not spunky enough to make you forget the original tune. In fact, Sachdev does not deviate from the original composition except for some pitch and rhythm modifications. They add spice to this variation, but not enough to make it stand out.

As for the actresses, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Shikha Talsania and Swara Bhasker look the part of childhood friends letting down their hair and standing by eachother while one of them ties the knot. The actresses share a comfortable bonhomie, with Bhasker and Talsania cutting loose.

In all, 'Bhangra Ta Sajda' is an entertaining, and creative number that does enough to make it catchy, but lacks touches that could have made it memorable.
