If you are a T20 buff, you must have seen IPL 2016 promo and heard the peppy tune by now. The colourful one-minute long promo song, which was first broadcast during the T20 match between India and Pakistan, has also gone viral on social media. And indeed it is a racy song.
The promo shows effigies of cricketers from different IPL teams, including Lasith Malinga, Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni, Mitchell Johnson, Glenn Maxwell, Suresh Raina, Shikhar Dhawan, Sachin Tendulkar, Navjot Singh Sidhu, Zaheer Khan and others brought to a street filled with cheering fans.
If you have not seen, just scroll down to watch it.
So did it sound gibberish to you?
OMG!! Didn’t you get it? Then, you really gotta be an f******g a******!
Need not worry, you are not alone. It is gibberish to one and all since the lyrics of the songs means nothing and it is sort of meaningless ditty. But you must have heard Pistah in this catch number.
Now wondering what Pistah means in the IPL 2016 promo song?
The racy song is from the Tamil-Malayalam bilingual film Neram, directed by Alphonse Putharen. The lyrics of the song means nothing and it is sort of meaningless ditty mouthed by veteran Malayalam actor Jagathy Sreekumar in the film Kinnaram (1983). The song was composed by musician Rajesh Murugesan and it is played during the end credits of the film.

Don’t you think that the choice of this peppy number could be a good strategy to hook the audience of south India when Chennai Super Kings and Kochi Tuskers are not a part of IPL 2016?
Let’s enjoy until the games begin on April 09, 2016.
