Watch: Arjit Singh's 'Enna Sona' from Ok Jaanu is easy on ears but falls short on words
Enna Sona from Ok Jaanu is from the perspective of Aditya Roy Kapur's character as he celebrates his complicated relationship with that of Shraddha Kapoor.
Enna Sona, the new song from Ok Jaanu, is not a dance number unlike the previous two tracks released by the makers. This one is a romantic number inspired from the original by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
The song, sung by Arijit Singh, is from the perspective of Aditya Roy Kapur's character as he embraces his live-in partner Shraddha Kapoor's character in spite of all her insecurities and imperfections. Aditya brings a sense of ease to the song with his boyish charm and Shraddha acts as a good support.
The song starts by a dig on the millennials' obsession of documenting every moment, whether happy, sad or angry, through pictures on social media. Instead of getting annoyed by his girlfriend's unreasonable demands, he feels like he has fallen in love with her all over again.
The music composer AR Rahman gives us another hummable melody but it ranks nowhere near his best. The lyricist Gulzar does not have much to do as the song is short on words and borrows heavily from the original. Singh complements the melody and lends an apt voice to Kapur's expressions.
The best part about the video still remains the setting, which is beautifully captured throughout the song. Among the adorable moments are when they dance in the Mumbai rain, mingle in a costume party, fight on the terrace of their place and make up inside a local train compartment.
Overall, Enna Sona brings to the forefront the softer moments of their relationship that had hitherto remained beneath the surface. This romantic number makes the much-needed attempt to scratch that surface. However, it remains just at the surface and fails to explore the depths.
