New Delhi: Aamir Khan's PK is out with a new song. Titled ‘Love is a Waste of Time,' the song gives you happy vibes but only when you allow yourself to hear it completely.

The man of wonders, Aamir Khan who has already triggered a mystery with his character in the film, looks totally smitten by a freaky pixie cut hair lady. ‘Love is a Waste of Time' is a playful number that sounds unique to you but is not actually everyone's cup of tea.

The video shows ultra colourful Aamir Khan taken care of by Anushka as they both roam and enjoy the picturesque locales of Delhi. The song evidently looks like the one where the entire team seems to be putting great efforts to assemble everything into one.

Despite good music, impressive background frames, colourful mood surrounding the video and two good performers, there's still something that doesn't suffice your thirst. And for me at least, I think it's Anushka and Aamir's pairing that is communicating nothing to you.

While both the actors seem to be delivering just what their character demanded with perfect expressions and every other element, that chemistry stands lacking in ‘Love is a Waste of Time.'

Neither that bulging out eyes of Aamir nor Anushka's ‘happy-go-lucky-girl-attitude' clicks you. Instead, ‘Love is a Waste of Time' sounds something that is a total waste of Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal's splendid melodious pairing.

What also reminds you somehow is Aamir and Kareena's comparatively more intriguing ‘zoobi doobi…' from 3-idiots, and that's when you realise that watching Kareena overacting is better than digesting Aamir doing the same or probably with more grace!

‘Love is a Waste of Time' is not a strictly disliked song but it is not the one that you would deliberately want to listen to. For my precise words, it is the one that I might not mind listening on radio but adding in my playlist would be a ‘task' for me!

Watch the goofy ‘Love is a Waste of Time' starring Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma from PK here…

The song tells you how being in love is good for you despite it being a complete useless thing to indulge in. The tip-tap music given by Shantanu Moitra remains the only engaging thing for you to transcend towards the end of the song.

The lyrics in a distinct accent seem forcing humour but fail to channelise any fun in the video. Neither contemporary nor classic, ‘Love is a Waste of Time' looks #JustFine and not enough satiating.

Your tricky call, I would say!
