With bari Eid around the corner, Eid releases are in full swing. Promotional activity is all around the place and news songs are being released left, right and centre. Today was no different as ‘Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2′ ,better known as JPNA2′ released their ‘shaadi song of the year’.
Their song was a version of the evergreen ‘Aaya Lariye’.
‘Aaya Lariye’ is originally a Punjabi folk song that features heavily at weddings. The song is beloved by all. The folk song got a fresh lease on life when Coke Studio covered it. After that, the song is getting a chance in the spotlight yet again, thanks to ‘Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2′.
Sadly, that spotlight is not so great, like at all!
People were just not happy at all after listening to the song
Some hadn’t actually listened, just the video was enough
Feedback was not great, at all
From ‘Shaadi song of the year’ to this!
Competition is giving them a run for their money
That’s an analogy I cannot get out of my head now
Some people just had issues with the dancing
*Plays Coke Studio version on loop forever*
Anyone offering dance lessons?
‘Fair And Lovely ka jalwa’ is coming back to haunt this film
Eyes, ears, heart, everything hurts
Tarang hi tarang hai?
Fans had high hopes from the song
If you REALLY want to hear the song, you can sample a part of it here:
Some really great shaadi songs have come out from the other two Eid releases this year, so competition is definitely is tough. Also, ‘Aaya Lariye’ is not a song that needs to be too complicated to work well, it’s already pretty beloved, sadly, the people at JPNA2 tried a bit too hard with the song. It’s pretty clear, people do not like it all too much!
Well songs are only part of the whole movie experience, let’s see how these movies do in the box office over bari Eid. What do you think of the song? Let us know in the comments 🙂
