Kidnap song 'Oi Dakche Aakash' a melodious composition with unappealing visuals


The desert location does little justice to the soothing imagery that the lyrics invoke. Neither does it bring out the warmth and passion of Dev Adhikari and Rukmini Maitra's love.

'Oi Dakche Aakash' song from Raja Chanda’s upcoming film Kidnap features protagonist Dev Adhikari romancing both his onscreen and real life love interest Rukmini Maitra. Sung by Pawandeep and composed by Jeet Gannguli, the song has a pleasant melody.

At the teaser launch of the film, Maitra said that finally she could dance to a song in an exotic location in Kidnap, which she had been looking forward to for long. Maitra can be seen in a glamorous avatar in the song that is set in a UAE desert. Adhikari, too, will be seen in the avatar of a hero in an amorous mood with his onscreen love interest after long.

However, the couple lacks chemistry in the visuals. Though Maitra looks gorgeous, she mostly seems to be posing. Adhikari, too, holds a single expression throughout the song and hence, the two hardly communicate and convey their equation, as well as the essence of the song.

Chanda’s simple lyrics express the proclamation of love. As the beloved makes her presence felt in his life, he forgets all his regrets and previous complaints. His life fills with multiple colours as if creating a rainbow in his heart. Her affectionate touch leaves a lasting impression on him and he intends to bestow all the gifts of nature on her.

The location, too, doesn’t complement the essence of the song. The desert location does little justice to the soothing imagery that the lyrics invoke. Neither does it bring out the warmth and passion of their love.

Gannguli’s composition is melodious, but it is better to listen to the song than watch it.

Kidnap is slated for release on Eid, 5 June.
