And the second song from Raees – Udi Udi Jaye is finally here! Featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Mahira Khan, while we knew for a fact this track is going to have a completely traditional vibe. Little did we expect it will show a blend of both Makar Sankranti and Navratri celebrations. Yes! Although the song begins with Makar Sankranti’s patent tradition of kite flying with even the lyrics saying ‘Dil Ki Patang dekho udi udi jaye’ but it eventually leads into Mahira and Shah Rukh playing garba towards the end. In fact, even the Gujarati beats of the song will further make you relate more towards Navaratri festive than Makar. In that case, guess all you guys have found your Navaratri track of the year ahead of Makar Sankranti…
Composed by Ram Sampath, Udi Udi Jaye has been written by Javed Akhtar whereas it’s sung by Sukhwinder Singh, Bhoomi Trivedi and Karsan Sagathia. Considering it’s the second love song from the film after Zaalima that released last week, we wonder if the makers are cashing on Shah Rukh and Mahira’s chemistry more than the actual plot of the film which revolves around the life of Gujarati underworld don, Abdul Lateef and his criminal doings. Like, you never know right? Probably it’s a strategy to promote the love angle now and then get into the edgy story?
No doubt, Team Raees has been sharing quite a few promos and stills from the film every now and then. The latest we saw was a specially edited promo featuring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who also plays a prominent role in this film, that as the daring cop. All said and done, what do you think of this latest song? Tell us in the comments below and keep watching this space for more updates.
