Popular songs brought back to life

gmail

Over the past years, the remake bug has bitten the Bollywood industry. The verdict is still out whether this growing obsession is appreciated or felt as an overkill by audiences. Whether as a tribute or to familiarize the younger generations, here are some of tunes that have been remade over the years.

1. Dilbar
The recent remix to garner everyone’s attention is ‘Dilbar’ from the to be released movie Satyamev Jayate. The song has created quite a stir having received 100 million views on YouTube, it is also said to be the first Hindi song to make it the third position of Billboard’s YouTube chart. That’s quite an accomplishment especially for composer Tanishk Bagchi who revived the 90’s track adding an Arabic flair with more energetic modern dance vibe while still keeping the original vocals of Alka Yagnik.

2. Hawa Hawai 2.0
‘Hawa Hawai 2.0’ from the 2017 Vidya Balan starrer Tumhari Sulu retains the essence of the original song ‘Hawa Hawai’ from the 1987 commercial success Mr. India. Retaining the original vocals by Kavita K Krishnamurthy and lyrics by Javed Akhtar, the only upgrade was its beats and music to make it more dance-y for audiences!

3. Dheere Dheere Se Meri Zindagi Mein Aana
‘Dheere Dheere Se Mere Zindagi Mein Aana’ from the block buster movie Ashiqui was a successful hit and a classic love anthem in the 90’s. In 2015, Bhushan Kumar paid tribute to his father Shri Gulshan Kumar by recreating the single alongside recording artist Yo Yo Honey Singh making it a hit again.

4. Gulabi Aankhen
The superhit ‘Gulabi Aankhen’ from the 1970 movie ‘The Train’ sung by Mohammad Rafi is a popular choice for remixes and recreation. Our favorite would have to be the peppy rendition by the fantastic four band and YouTube sensations Sanam who have been famous for their recreation and covers of Bollywood classics. If you haven’t already heard it, enjoy Sanam’s rendition of the song above.

5. Aaj Phir
The movie ‘Dayavan’ introduced the original song ‘Aaj Phir Tum Pe Pyar Aaya’ featuring Madhuri Dixit and Vinod Khanna. The seductive song was brought back in the melodious voices of Arijit Singh and Samira Koppikar in the 2014 movie Hate Story 2. The music visuals brought the chemistry and passion of the movie leads Surveen Chawla and Jay Bhanushali onscreen.

6. Har Kisi Ko Nahi Milta
The track originally composed by Kalyanji Anandji for the 1986 movie Janbaaz was adapted by Chirantan Bhatt for the 2013 movie Boss featuring two versions to the song. The first was sung by Nikhil D’souza who gave a soft-rock version while the second seen on the album was rendered by Arijit Singh.

7. Dum Maaro Dum
‘Dum Maaro Dum’ picturized on Zeenat Aman from the movie Hare Rama Hare Krishna is something movie buffs haven’t forgotten yet. In 2011, the iconic song was reworked and released as an item song picturized on Deepika Padukone in the thriller movie Dum Maaro Dum. The remix was belted by Pop Singer Anushka Manchanda and still retains its original melody settings that fuels up the tempo and puts audiences in a groovy mood.

This RD Burman song from the movie Hum Kisise Kum Naheen was one of the most sensational songs in 1977. The popular song name was used by Yash Chopra and son Aditya Chopra as a movie title in 2008 starring Ranbir Kapoor. The movie title song was a remixed amped version of the original tune, featuring Kishor Kumar voice alongside two other singers.
