Its the season of song remakes. Punjabi chartbusters are being remixed and fed with an ample dose of rap to have one certified hit song in every film.
After “Hauli Hauli” from De De Pyaar De, “Khadke Glassy” from Jabariya Jodi, “Koka” and “Sheher Ki Ladki” from Khandaani Shafakana , Bollywood is out with another reprised version of the classic Punjabi hit- “Wakhra Swag” by Navv Inder and Badshah.
Judgementall Hai Kya makers launched the film’s first song titled “Wakhra Song” featuring the lead pair of the film, Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao.
A remixed version of the same track by Navv Inder, the song features a rap from artist Raja Kumari ( voiced by Kangana Ranaut) in the music video.
Its an experimental track in the sense of fashion that highlights the track, particularly the sharpness and bling of Kangana’s character personified in the clothes she wears. The mix of good and bad, especially the Maleficant inspired look on the ramp is classic.
Music for the film has been composed by Tanishk Bagchi.
Earlier in the week, trailer of the film was launched which gathered much appreciation and excitement among fans.
Judgementall Hai Kya has also courted fair share of controversy even before its trailer release . It all began with its name “Mental Hai Kya” which was later changed as criticism from some quarters called it derogatory and insensitive to people who are affected by mental illness’. The title was later changed by the makers before the official trailer was released.
The film also starrs Amrya Dastur, Jimmy Sheirgill and Harshitaa Bhatt. The screenplay has been written by Kanika Dhillon.
Directed by Prakash Kovelamudi and produced by Ekta Kapoor, Judgementall Hai Kya is slated to release on 26 July 2019.
