Please..” Another user commented, “I am sad as it looks like a good song was taken away from us but hope we will really get to hear it someday or even if they just release the audio that would be enough.” Take a look at what Shaan posted here:

Dunki opened to stellar reviews. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote, “Dunki is buoyed by an array of flawless performances, with the lead actor and Taapsee Pannu, playing a woman who is far more than just the hero’s romantic interest, leading the way through the ups and downs – more of the latter really – triggered by the characters’ repeated leaps of faith across unknown terrains and into an equally alien land.”
