As we await the release of Pakistani actress Mawra Hocane’s Bollywood debut film Sanam Teri Kasam (out in cinemas on February 5), the film’s producers up the anticipation with the film’s title track.
Set against the backdrop of an abandoned theatre, the video shows romance blooming between Mawra’s character, the simple Saru and Inder, a bad boy with a soft centre.
A straightforward ode to a beloved, the song is sweet and soft. While some speculated that we’d see Mawra dazzle in that red sari she was pictured in earlier, this song plays it safe. It’s certainly romantic but lacks that x-factor.
‘Sanam Teri Kasam’ has been sung by Ankit Tiwari, the Filmfare Award-winning singer/music director whose tracks like ‘Galliyan’ (Ek Villian) and ‘Sun Raha Hai’ (Ashiqui 2) have been huge hits. He also lent his vocals to ‘O Yara’, a track for the Pakistani film Bin Roye.
