Sara Loren makes a comeback with ‘Ishq Hoa Jo Tari’ in JPNA2

Jawani Phir Nahi Aani 2 includes a huge star-studded cast and loads of surprises. After releasing 3 tracks earlier, the filmmakers have now released the club number, ‘Ishq Hoa Jo Tari’, featuring model turned actor Sara Loren, formerly known as Mona Lisa, who has earlier starred in a couple of Bollywood movies too.

‘Ishq Hoa Jo Tari’ is a proper dance based song, sung by Momina Musthesan, who really doesn’t have the vocals for this kind of song; we feel Aima Baig would have probably been a better choice for the number. Momina’s voice is sweet and suits sugary romantic tracks more; remember ‘Afreen Afreen’? The music has been composed by Sahir Ali Bagga but the playback should have been deeper and huskier.

The good thing is that the video has Sara looking stunning but also the very gorgeous Kubra Khan and debutant Omer Shahzad. For all those who might think it’s an unnecessary dance number, the song seems to be a part of the plot as we can see chaos in the background.

While Pakistani female actors have been criticised for their lack of dance moves, Sara proves she knows her job. Well, comparatively speaking. The song is choreographed by famous Bollywood dance director Shabina Khan who was flown in from India to shoot total 3 songs. While it’s not bad, with more time and practice, the song could have turned out to be better.

Even though we won’t be playing this song on repeat, Sara Loren seems to have done justice to the role she has been offered.

Watch the song below:
