MUSIC VIDEO REVIEW: We love Sonakshi Sinha’s swag on ‘Swag Saha Nahi Jaaye’ and little else
By Bryan Durham - August 2, 2018
Big fat Punjabi wedding song alert! Swag Saha Nahi Jaaye is Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi’s first single to release and features Sonakshi Sinha as a runaway bride with Jimmy Sheirgill and Punjabi pop star Jassie Gill (in his debut Bollywood role) as the two men in pursuit.
Visually, it’s every bit the loud, garish, stereotypical wedding-wala showsha you’d expect at a Punjabi wedding…
Sonakshi is the bold, go-getter types and it suits her well as she tells off Jassie’s character for not giving his phone number…
Girl can move and she has shown that before as well….
It’s just that the Sohail Sen track featuring vocals by Neha Bhasin and him and lyrics by the director Mudassar Aziz isn’t as catchy as you’d like it to be. In fact, the song felt more inspired by a mata-ki-chowki than an actual wedding.
But that apart, it’s not all bad. Sona’s swag we don’t mind at all…
..it’s just that misleading vibe the song gives, jo saha nahi jaaye!
The film releases August 24. Music out via Eros Music.
