Amidst the ongoing discussions surrounding Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s film “Animal,” the movie’s songs have already become a sensation, with one standout being Bobby Deol’s entry song titled “Jamal Kudu.” Released by the makers in response to popular demand, the song carries a unique significance.
The inspiration behind Bobby Deol’s entry song, “Jamal Kudu,” lies in the Iranian composition titled “Jamaal Jamaaloo,” originally crafted by Iran’s Khatareh Group around a decade ago. Harshvardhan Rameshwar has skillfully reinterpreted the song for the movie “Animal.”
The original Iranian song, “Jamaal Jamaaloo,” features poignant lyrics expressing the plea: “Oh my cutie, don’t play with my heart. You are leaving, embarking on a journey, and I’m going crazy. Oh my love, my beloved.” Notably, the song had its origins in the 1950s when it was first performed by the Kharazemi Girls High School. Over the years, it gained popularity, particularly at Iranian weddings.
The Animal song, “Jamal Kudu,” carries profound meaning and emotion, with the lyrics conveying sentiments of heartbreak and longing. The lyrics include lines such as:
“Vay Siyah Zangi Delamo Nakon Khun Vay To Rafti Safar Shodam Cho Majnun – Oh! The black-eyed beauty, don’t break my heart with your brutality. Oh, you are leaving me to embark on a new journey, and I am going crazy like Majnu.”
“Jamal Jamalek Jamaloo Jamal Kudu – Oh my love, my beloved, my sweet love!”
These lyrical expressions capture the essence of the song’s emotional depth. Lines like “Don’t mess with my heart, darling. You’re leaving me to go on a voyage, and I’m going crazy like Majnu” evoke a sense of profound emotion and connection.
“Animal” audiences are sure to be captivated by the reimagined version of “Jamal Kudu,” as it pays homage to the rich cultural roots of the original Iranian song while adding a unique touch to the cinematic experience. The heartfelt lyrics and soulful composition by Harshvardhan Rameshwar promise to make Bobby Deol’s entry song a memorable aspect of the film.
