The trailer of Honey Singh‘s upcoming musical Satan was released just 2 days back and it has already gained 76,000+ views. The trailer has raised Yo Yo’s fans’ expectations very high of this much anticipated video which is getting released on 12-12-12.
The full video has justreleased and the funny thing is that the song is actually called “Weed Pila De SATAN”.
The video is impressive as stand alone, but combined with the song makes no sense at all. The theme of the song, the way it was marketed and the way it was promoted, has nothing to do with the song. Add to that the fact that the song is in Hindi, it looses impact. Its evident that Honey Singh is catering to the National Audience through this song.
Directed By David Zennie who besides being a Lebanese-American Film Maker is one of the most sought after music video directors of Middle East. The trailer video says “Anurag Kashyap Presents” which is a bit enigmatic. May be the video is directed by both Anurag Kashyap & David Zennie or the full album is directed by Anurag Kashyap and this single video is directed by David Zennie. Or maybe, he is planning for a movie of some sort based on the concept.
The name itself is quite perplexing. Now traditionally Satan is St. Lucifer, the so called El Diablo, the Devil himself. Is Honey Singh presenting this album as the reincarnation of the same? Or is it a new fantasy based character? But it cant be denied that this seems to be a very good theme for a concept album. If true, this can be the first Concept album, not only in Punjabi music, but also the first in India.
Not to mention the large overdose of One World Government and Illuminati during promotion, but none of that was to be seen in the video.
