After two back to back hits, Tu Jhoom and Kana Yari, high expectations have been attached to Coke Studio’s latest season. Considering the third collaboration features Atif Aslam and Momina Musthesan, fans expected nothing less than pure magic. However, reactions to Sajan Das Na have been rather mixed.

Sajan Das Na is described as a tale of love, complications and distances. The song has been produced by Xulfi, while the lyrics have been penned by Adnan Dhool and Momina Mustehsan. The composition is by Xulfi, Abdullah Siddiqui, Adnan and Momina.

 

 

According to associate producer, Abdullah Siddiqui’s Instagram post, Sajan Das Na was the toughest songs to crack.

“There had been multiple versions, none of which were what we were looking for. Then one night, at the end of a very hard day, at the end of a very hard week, I sat down in Xulfi‘s studio while he was out, and in a sudden flash of creativity made the whole instrumental track and several of the melodies,” he wrote.

“Xulfi came home at some point, exhausted. I’ll never forget how his energy changed when he heard the track; he literally jumped up and down and gave me a massive hug. We felt such joy and relief. It felt like we’d rediscovered our love for pop music after being in our heads for so long. Nothing too conceptual, just a solid, infectious, modern, pure pop song. And who better to sing a pure pop song than Atif Aslam and Momina Mustehsan,” he further narrated.

 

 

 

The romantic pop number has a decent beat and is being  loved by some, while others think it lacks experimentation and are not sure how they really feel about it.

Let’s have a look at the Twitter reactions:

“Haven’t vibed to any hindi/punjabi romantic pop song so much.. Unarguably, best from Atif Aslam after the Bollywood ban. I love how he’s exploring different genres,” wrote a fan from India.

 

 

One user said “Coke Studio could have and should have done better”. They expected much more from the song, especially with stars like Atif Aslam and Momina Mustehsan involved.

 

 

Another user felt the song was “meh” but she loved the way Atif looked in the video.

 

 

“Atif likes to experiment which is good. However, Momina’s voice doesn’t compliment much with the overall vibe. I guess it’s time CS should stick to introducing new talent more,”  expressed a user.

 

 

Some even thought they got major Shamoon vibes from the song.

 

 

Another user said that it is not as bad as you think. It grows on you.
