‘Ok Jaanu’, Shaad Ali’s remake of the South Indian film ‘OK Kanmani’ that had every critic raving about it, is about two young lovers who decide to live in, knowing that they will soon part ways and never meet again. The remake stars Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur in the main lead.
‘Ok Jaanu’ has left people hating on Badshah for revisiting the 90s classic ‘Humma Humma’ and adding his nonsensical rap to it.
But, the makers just released the video of the title track and it is definitely compensating for all the ‘Humma Humma’ damage. Composed by A.R. Rahman and penned by Gulzar, the song is a Hindi version of Mental Manadhil from ‘Ok Kanmani’. Now of course, if you love the original, this one might disappoint but objectively speaking, the ‘Ok Jaanu’ title track does deserve a big thumbs up. Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Kapoor might have lacked chemistry in ‘Humma Humma’ but here, the two seem to be having the best time of their lives on a bike ride across the city. If nothing else, this song will give you dating goals!
Just in case you haven’t heard the original one, here it is!
