After the lovable, melodious Adhento Gaani Vunnapaatuga, the team of Jersey are back with their second single, which is in total contrast to the first song which came out. Titled ‘Spirit of Jersey’, this is an upbeat, powerful track that will be used as a motivational number in the film celebrating Nani’s wins as a cricketer. Sung by MM Keeravani’s son Kaala Bhairava, the song has lyrics by Krishnakanth.
After a mysterious start, Anirudh clings onto a drum beat loop that he maintains for the entire song. The instrumentations superbly complement Kaala Bhairava’s vocals, which also come with a chorus portion. The ‘Thagalaga Megame’ part is what makes it click, being the all-important hook. For the interludes, Anirudh resorts to his favorite string setup, which works nicely. Overall, this is a track that will definitely click with the youth, and get better with the visuals.
Written and directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri with cinematography by Sanu John Varghese, Jersey has Nani playing the role of a late bloomer who fights against the odds to make his way into the Indian team. The film is said to possess a huge amount of emotional value right until the end. Shraddha Shrinath plays Nani’s love interest while Brahmaji and Subbaraju will be seen in pivotal roles.
Trade pundits have indicated that Jersey would surely hit the screens this summer. Next week, the makers of the film will be watching the final cut, and then decide on the promotional strategies and the release date of the film.
