Remember the song Kaara Aattakkaara, yes it is among the most popular songs from the album of the original movie OK Kanmani. And now when we see it coming in the remake OK Jaanu, the music maestro AR Rahman has recreated this song for the Hindi audience without losing all the magical features of the original. Now the film OK Jaanu can be called as the official remake of the 2015 Tamil hit, that starred Dulquer Salmaan and Nithya Menen, and hence a majority of the songs that AR Rahman had composed for the original are being used here as well.
However, talking about the Hindi album also has a slew of new songs as well, and having reviewed the album previously, I loved OK Jaanu‘s soundtrack slightly better than the Tamil one even if that means more rotten eggs for me from the OKK fans. The film OK Jaanu stars Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur, while Shaad Ali the Saathiya fame director has directed his mentor, Mani Ratnam’s vision in Hindi.
Now, coming back to Kaara Fankaara, one can still find trouble adjusting to Hindi lyrics (Navneet Virk, Kaly, Hard Kaur & ADK) here having heard the Tamil song so much, but the rap (Kaly, Hard Kaur & ADK) and the plethora of singers used here (Shashaa Tirupati, Ashima Mahajan, Paroma Dasgupta) work so well to make it the latest youth anthem, which will definitely usher in more of the college going crowds into the theatres. Talking about the song’s video, it showcases the transition of romance for the characters played by Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor, with mild flirtation to sensuous romance, And of course, a lots of making out and kissing. The film OK Jaanu is scheduled to release this Friday, ending Dangal‘s long, undisputed reign at the box office. It will be clashing with Deepika Padukone’s xXx: Return of Xander Cage, that’s releasing a day after.
