Jai Jai Shivshankar, the latest song from Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer War is out. The song’s title is reminiscent of the track filmed on Rajesh Khanna but the title is the only thing that the two songs share.
Hrithik and Tiger are two of the best dancers Bollywood has to offer and the two are a match for each other here. The choreography, by Bosco – Caesar, is top-notch and shows off the actors’ incredible talents.
Composed by Vishal-Shekhar, Vishal and Benny Dayal provide the vocals for Hrithik and Tiger respectively. The good thing about the song is it is beautifully shot and in the visual department at least, it nails it. The music is also pretty catchy.
The song is Holi-themed, so little clouds of colour burst and flank Hrithik and Tiger as they perform their dance steps. The song picks up energy as it goes on. But the lyrics, penned by Kumaar, do not exactly complement the visuals or the music. It does start off well enough, but the refrain kind of messes it up.
Director Siddharth Anand said, “Since the inception of the film, people were speculating that there would be a huge dance anthem featuring two of the best dancers of our country, Hrithik and Tiger. While people were wowed that two of the biggest action heroes of India were combining for the first time, they were also equally excited to see them dance together in War. This has been the biggest anticipation which automatically becomes a huge pressure for the people to deliver a cracking song that should become an anthem.”
He added, “Hrithik and Tiger have had very, very good songs and big hit songs to their credit. Now, we are bringing them together for the first time and so we have all the more responsibility to deliver a song that should become a blockbuster instantly. I told Vishal and Shekhar that this is not just a song, this is a responsibility.”
Before “Jai Jai Shivshankar”, the makers had released “Ghungroo”, a song filmed on Hrithik and Vaani Kapoor. The song, featuring vocals from Arijit Singh and Shilpa Rao, had received a positive response from fans.
War releases on October 2.
