A Potpourri of Vestiges Feature
After SRK and Mahira filled everybody's hearts with love by their passionate romance in the sweeping desert landscapes with "Zaalima", they are back with "Udi Udi Jaye" to make you dance to their tunes and fill your lives with colors.
Romance is once again in the air but this time it's not about evoking fantasy in exotic lands but is about celebrating the spirit of Uttarayan, a major Hindu festival associated with kite flying that's celebrated every year from 8th - 14th January.
The skies become a sight to behold during the Uttarayan festivities with with joy and frenzy abound as kite enthusiasts as well as tourists gather to take part in in the kite carnival. The "Udi Udi Jaye" song beautifully captures in essence the bonhomie and euphoria associated with Uttarayan.
The song, composed and produced by Ram Sampath, is written by Javed Akhtar. Sukhwinder Singh, Bhoomi Trivedi and Karsan Sagathia have sung it in their mellifluous voices. And, SRK and Mahira, have performed really well to the romantic number, brilliantly choreographed by Samir and Arsh Tanna.
Raees, directed by Rahul Dholakia, is set in the 1980s Gujarat and stars Shah Rukh Khan in the role of a Gujarati bootlegger with Mahira Khan playing his love interest. The films also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Atul Kulkarni. The films is co-produced by Farhan Akhtar, Gauri Khan, and Ritesh Sidhwani.
The trailer/rushes/songs of Raees have already been creating buzz all aound. Apart from SRK, everyone seems to be really excited by Nawazuddin Siddiqui who would be sharing the screen with King King for the very first time. Also, Mahira's chemistry with SRK has been praised by one and all.
It now remains to be seen if Raees lives up to its pre-release hype. SRK dearly needs to movie to be a major blockbuster. His recent films haven't been able to meet the expectations at the box-office. While his last major outing Fan was praised by critics all around, it failed to woo the audience. Earlier Dilwale had faced a severe competition with Bajirao Mastani and ultimately failed to meet the commercial expectations. This time SRK's Raees will be facing severe competition from the Hrithik Roshan starrer Kaabil. And so despite the buzz it cannot be said with absolute certainty whether Raees would become the blockbuster that Shah Rukh Khan has been looking for.
Raees is set to release on January 25, 2017.
