Jawan Trailer: SRK Dances to Romantic Songs from 1960s Films Across Languages
In an attempt to resonate with diverse audiences, the final scene of the prevue for the film "Jawan" maintains the same mood while featuring different songs. Shah Rukh Khan is seen joyfully dancing in the aisles of a metro train, creating a captivating visual spectacle. The Hindi version of the prevue showcases the song "Bekarar Karke...", while the Tamil version features "Pattu Padava," and the Telugu version delights audiences with "Ee Mounam, Ee Bidiyam." All three songs hail from the 1960s and were originally filmed in classic black and white, starring the top stars of that era. By incorporating these nostalgic melodies, the preview takes viewers on a delightful trip down memory lane.
"Jawan", billed as a pan-India film, is directed by Atlee, a prominent name in Tamil cinema with blockbusters such as "Theri" and "Mersal" to his credit. The movie's 'prevue', as the makers dubbed the 2.12 minute clip, was released earlier this week on social media.
The 'prevue' of "Jawan" ends with a bald Shah Rukh moving rhythmically to "Beqarar Karke Humein", a romantic number from the 1962 movie "Bees Saal Baad" sung by Hemant Kumar. Filmed on Biswajeet and Waheeda Rehman, the song shows the hero following the heroine in an attempt to woo her as they walk around a picturesque landscape.
The Tamil 'prevue' ends with the star shaking a leg to "Paattu Padava" ("Shall I Sing For You?") from the 1961 Tamil film "Thennilavu". The song, playbacked by A M Rajah, features Gemini Ganesan -- Tamil cinema's 'king of romance' -- and Vyjayanthimala.
The video of "Pattu Padava", with a rhythm very similar to that of "Beqarar Karke Humein", shows the hero seeking the attention of his beloved.
In the Telugu version, the song is "Ee Mounam, Ee Bidiyam" ("This Silence, This Modesty"), sung by Ghantasala and P Susheela, from the 1964 movie "Doctor Chakravarty". On screen are Telugu cinema icon Akkineni Nageswara Rao and Krishna Kumari in which their characters express their love towards each other by praising qualities like "silence" and "modesty".
Besides Shah Rukh, “Jawan” features Tamil cinema superstars Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi. It will hit the screens on September 7 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
The film also stars Deepika Padukone in a special appearance, along with Sanya Malhotra, Priyamani, Girija Oak, Sanjeeta Bhattacharya, Lehar Khan, Aaliyah Qureshi, Ridhi Dogra, Sunil Grover and Mukesh Chhabra in key roles.
It is produced by Gauri Khan and co-produced by Gaurav Gupta under the production banner Red Chillies Entertainment.
The filmmakers have billed "Jawan" to be "a high-octane action thriller that outlines the emotional journey of a man who is set to rectify the wrongs in the society".
