Retaining the Kishore Kumar essence, the new song of Student of The Year 2, The Jawaani Song, is a peppy remix of RD Burman’s old melody that has entered the list of songs climbing the chart of remakes that is currently in vogue in Bollywood. The song gives hands down nostalgic feels of Disco Deewane from SOTY, except that this one stars Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria and Ananya Panday in the lead.
Rid with foot-tapping beats and catchy lyrics, the song shows the college students, ridiculously, in school uniforms and that in a super funky and non-realistic manner. The backdrop of the song changes from disco to a classroom. In the last part, the actor-dancers move over to more glamorous avatars. Despite the restrictions to reality, the fast-paced song looks like another chartbuster in Tinseltown along with its worth-replicating hook step.
The original song by RD Burman, crooned by Kishore Kumar, has been recreated to suit the ‘Batch of 2019’ by singer duo Vishal-Shekhar. While the original lyrics by Anand Bakshi have been retained, some new ones have been added by Anvita Dutt while the voice to female parts of the song has been lent by Payal Dev. The song collected over lakh views within minutes of being dropped on YouTube.
Producer Karan Johar dropped the song on his social media handle and captioned it, “Going old school with this number & our new batch #TheJawaaniSong- http://bit.ly/TheJawaaniSong #SOTY2 @iTIGERSHROFF #Tara @ananyapandayy @punitdmalhotra @apoorvamehta18 @VishalDadlani @ShekharRavjiani #KishoreKumar #RDBurman @DharmaMovies @foxstarhindi @ZeeMusicCompany @SOTYOfficial” (sic).
