Composed by Vishvesh Parmar it is set to be used as caller tune or chart topper for musical gadgets

Oo, oo, oo, ooooooo!!!
Pankhida tu udi jaajo America re,
Obama ne jaine kehjo Visa
aape re…!!!
Mummy na haath na khakra, thepla, maali-e-mukine,
Sui jaaje raatre, pizza- burger tuhsi ne…!!!
Facebook upar status lakhshe, ‘I Love US re’,
Obama ne jaine kehjo Visa aape re…!!!
Pankhida, Pankhida
Udi Ja, Udi Ja…!!!
This is the new buzz among youngsters. One could call it the Gujarati Kolaveri as they just can’t keep their ears off it! With an aim to turn Gujarati film and album songs into caller tunes and ‘chart toppers’ on musical gadgets, singer and music composer Vishvesh Parmar brings to Gujarati young guns, Pankhida in rock form.
“It’s time that Gujarati songs made their way as caller tunes and chart toppers for musical gadgets, I mean for how long will Bollywood and international English numbers continue to rule us,” questions Parmar who has composed Pankhida Rock song for the movie, Kevi Rite Jaish.
Parmar continues that they haven’t tampered with the original Pankhida but have made a newer version attracting the youth by putting the famous lyrics in a rock genre. “As children we have heard the original garba song, Pankhida tu udi jaaje pavagarh re, Maari Mahakali ne jaine kehje, garbe rame re. I created eight versions of this song but the first demo I made was liked by Abhishek (Jain) and that’s it. We were on it working,” says Parmar.
As a true Gujarati film cinegoer, Parmar believes that its vital to change music of Gujarati films to attract more youngsters. With a band of his own, Parmar promises to compose more Gujarati songs in different genres ensuring more people come to watch Gujarati films.
If you thought rock genre was the only attraction about this song, then you are wrong, as rock singer, Suraj Jagan is another reason to listen to this song over and over. Commenting on his experience with the song and its lyrics, Jagan says, “The very fact that a Gujarati song had to be sung in a rock form, was quite amusing. I have never done a full-fledged Gujarati movie song, this is my first, but I have done Gujarati jingles before.”
Jagan who has in the past sung in different languages, did not find singing Gujarati lyrics difficult. He wrote them in Hindi and then went about singing it. However, he was stopped quite a few times, before the song went viral on the internet.
“The English words in the song had to be sung with a Gujarati accent, and that is where I was stopped again and again. There is a humour angle to it and it really works very well when you listen to the song. I personally like the line, Obama ne jaine kehjo Visa aape re…!!!,” Jagan concludes laughingly.
