Starring ex-lovers Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor, OK Jaanu is a film based on no-commitment relationships. Yes, it’s pretty much has similar feel as most movies lately, in which a casual relationship turns into something serious.
And then there is heartbreak, drama and lots of realisations. Produced by Mani Ratnam and Karan Johar, this movie released on Friday, 13th January 2017, and has left plenty of people with a warm and fuzzy feeling. As for the music album, we have A.R. Rahman doing the honours, and boy do we love him! Check it out.
1. OK Jaanu
The peppy and catchy title track in the unmissable voice of A.R. Rahman, accompanied by Srinidhi Venkatesh, is a young, fresh and carefree number in its first few minutes. But the lyrics soon turn a little too carefree and switch to mumbles and fillers. Sadly, by the end of the track A.R. Rahman becomes incomprehensive. The song is all about the “so original” concept of commitment free relationships, and the video kills me slowly.
2. Enna Sona
You’d think that a track that has Arijit Singh and A.R. Rahman teamed up can only make you fall in love the very first time you hear it. And that’s exactly what happens. It’s romantic, melodious, and soothing. Thumbs up for this one! The video too is cute in bits and pieces.
3. Jee Lein
As lovely the previous track is, this one is as boring. Sung by Savithri R, Prithvi, Arjun Chandy, Neeti Mohan and A.R. Rahman, this song could easily make you fall asleep, if it wasn’t for the terrible voice modulations.
4. Kaara Fankaara
This song by team Paroma Das Gupta, Shashaa Tirupati, Hard Kaur, ADK, Kaly, A.R. Rahman and Ashima Mahajan is very different. Hard Kaur’s rap is amazing, and the video is intriguing and will keep you hooked. I really do hate the “Kaara Fankaara” part, but Hard Kaur’s got my heart.
5. Saajan Aayo Re
A lovely, romantic track, very different to the rest of the album. It has a classical touch, and is sung beautifully by Jonita Gandhi and Nakash Aziz. Thumbs up for this one too!
6. Maula Wa Sallim
I don’t understand a word of this song, but it is absolutely beautiful. The singer is A.R. Rahman’s song, A.R. Ameen, and his voice is as magical as Rahman’s! It’s nothing like you’ve ever heard before.
7. Sun Bhavara
The second-last one of the album is another classical track, romantic and soulful, in the astonishing voice of Shashaa Tirupati. It takes you to another world. Love it!
8. The Humma Song
The album ends with a bang, with the famous “bedroom song” that calls itself a rehash of the original Humma track by Remo Fernandes – this one, with some extra beats, sensuous moves, and A.R. Rahman’s feels, along with contributions from the singers Tanishk Bagchi, Jubin Nautyal, Shashaa Tirupati and Badshah. Apparently, Remo was not too happy with the new version, and called it “a pale, insipid version of the original”. We agree that it doesn’t match up to the original version, but it is does sound refreshing. Badshah’s rap could have surely been skipped.
This extensive music album is full of surprises, and is surely making me want to watch the movie right now!
