A Powerful Voice for Women

“Paon Ki Jutti” breaks away from the traditional portrayal of women in Punjabi music videos. The lyrics, penned by Jaani, depict a woman who is fiercely independent and unafraid to express her desires. Lines like “Main apno se jeeti, begano se jeeti (I live for myself, I live for strangers)” and “Lehron se jeeti, toofano se jeeti (I conquer the waves, I conquer the storms)” establish her as a force to be reckoned with. She challenges societal expectations and refuses to be confined by the traditional role of a submissive lover.

Juxtaposition of Vulnerability and Strength

However, the song doesn't paint a one-dimensional picture. While the woman asserts her independence, there's an underlying vulnerability that peeks through the bravado. The central metaphor of the “jutti” (slipper) signifies a casualness in the relationship. She compares herself to a slipper, something that can be easily discarded at will. This vulnerability adds depth to her character and makes her defiance all the more relatable.

Twist on a Familiar Trope

The narrative revolves around a wealthy man, played by Shiv Panditt, who tries to impress the woman, played by Isha Malviya. He showers her with materialistic possessions – a car, a bungalow, and even his name. However, she remains unimpressed. The video cleverly subverts the usual trope of the woman falling for the man's wealth. Instead, she emphasizes that true love and respect are what matter, not material possessions.

Thara paisa thari daulat
Thari gaadi thara naam
Thara bangla thara gaanv
Tum hi rakho re

Thari raag thari shan
Thara nasha thara jaam
Thare log thara naam
Tum hi rakho re
