Not a day goes by without Bollywood fans talking about the much-awaited flick Student of the Year 2, starring Tiger Shroff, Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria. Everything from its trailer to its songs has gotten tons of attention and comments, ranging from positive to negative. Regardless of whether or not people have their hopes up for this movie, its pretty clear that Bollywood movie-goers are curious to see what the full film will bring once it hits the big screen. Hype for the movie recently increased tenfold thanks to the recently released track 'Hook Up Song.' While it's definitely not the first one to have come out, with 'The Jawaani Song' and 'Mumbai Dilli Di Kudiyaan' already having been released a few weeks prior, this track has by far gotten the most attention as it features Tiger Shroff alongside the one and only Alia Bhatt! But once the video was actually out, reactions weren't entirely positive, to say the least.
First check out the song here:
The YouTube comments were filled to the brim with all kinds of jokes regarding the clip, with a couple referencing the movie 3 Idiots and the similarly titled 'The Breakup Song', which is from the Karan Johar-directed film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. A fitting comparison as KJo is producing SOTY 2 as well!
Many memes were used to convey people's emotions.

The more I watch the hook up song the funnier it gets pic.twitter.com/2su6PkZADp— thatvickeygirl (@ThatVickeyGirl) May 1, 2019
Some people were just plain angry and fed up.
#HookUpSong: Can someone tell me why Alia is wasting her talent on hollow, empty BS like this? There is nothing, NOTHING about this film that’s standing out for me except maybe Tara. #SOTY2 pic.twitter.com/RjUJKqxsQX— BollyBri (@BollyBrit) April 30, 2019
Left mid way. Such a pathetic song— Srishti Kaul (@mysticsrishti) April 30, 2019
Some didn't mind it all that much.
I may be the only one still streaming The hook up song and enjoying it and that’s okay. pic.twitter.com/bEwI0pNLP7— tongue technology (@ranbirXyoongi) May 1, 2019
Quite a few people praised Neha Kakkar's vocals in the track.
Why is this song so addictive ughhh Neha’s Kakkar !!! #HookUpSong— Surbhi (@aisidhakkadhai) April 30, 2019
Just when one thought things were quietening down for @iamnehakakkar she whips out two more belters #HauliHauli from #DeDePyaarDe & #HookUpSong from #SOTY2 - both are brilliant as each other! Fresh & vibrant!— Raj Baddhan (@RajBaddhan) April 30, 2019
And some Alia fans were just happy to see their favourite actress.
Student of the Year 2 will be releasing on May 10th and is the sequel to the blockbuster hit Student of the Year, directed by Karan Johar and starring Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan.
