Satyameva Jayate song 'Tere Jaisa': This fine composition could have done with better lyrics


Though 'Tere Jaisa' can barely be categorized as a love song, it can be enjoyed for its fine score.

So far Milap Zaveri's Satyameva Jayate has been all about punch lines, gory visuals and loud action. The makers have also released a few songs from the film; remakes 'Tajdar-e-Haram', 'Dilbar' and the romantic number, 'Paniyon Sa'. Now, they introduce a fourth song, 'Tere Jaisa', again a romantic number.   

The song has Virendra Kumar Singh (John Abraham) and Shikha (Aisha Sharma) share some cozy moments. Shikha seems to be unaware of Singh’s real identity and so the song begins with Virendra warning her. “Your parents have, perhaps, not taught you not to play with fire," he says. But when in love, one rarely looks at the dark sides of one's lover.  

The song is penned, composed and sung by Arko. Singer Tulsi Kumar has joined Arko in the singing. The lyrics, especially the mukhda, don’t really hold ones attention for long. Though not poor, they fail to generate any feelings of romance.

What works for the track is the fine soothing music that uses some desi elements like tabla, harmonium, and shehnai.

Though the lead singer here, Kumar doesn’t get the best lines. She has done a decent job and a slightly better lyrics would have seen Kumar own this song.  

Arko has reserved the best lyrics for himself in the antara, and he, too, doesn’t disappoint in the singing.

The song uses cozy moments to show passion and the chemistry between the characters. However, John has seldom looked comfortable while being a romantic onscreen and here, too, he does not contribute much. Newcomer Aisha Sharma fails to connect with the viewers.

Though 'Tere Jaisa' can barely be categorized as a love song, it can be enjoyed for its fine score.

Satyameva Jayate is set to be released on 15 August.
