It has been almost 25 years since the movie 1942: A Love Story released. I am a big fan of the movie and the songs claim a special place in my heart. I am sure there are many who feel the same way. Thus, when I heard that one of the best songs from the movie is getting rehashed then it made me skeptical. Yes, I am talking about the Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga which recently got released as a title song of a movie with the same name.
Before telling you about this new rendition, let us talk a bit about the upcoming movie Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. This Sonam Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao starrer upcoming movie released its trailers a few days back. Since then, people cannot stop talking about it!
Why? Though a love story, it is not another clichéd one. In fact, the trailer suggests that it is a story depicting the love between two girls. Yes, it is a story on lesbianism. We are happy that mainstream Bollywood movies are going beyond their prejudice to welcome LGBTQ community. Here is the heartwarming trailer.
Getting back to the song, the original one was sung by Kumar Sanu and featured on Anil Kapoor and Manisha Koirala. Moreover, it was composed by one of the greatest music directors of Hindi cinema, R. D. Burman. Naturally, there is a lot of pressure on this new rendition. To refresh your memory, here is the original song:
We must say that this new song voiced by Darshan Raval and composed by Rochak Kohli doesn’t recreate the original charm. Rather, it weaves completely new magic that you will love. Completed with pleasing visuals and a Punjabi twist, this song is certainly beautiful. Hear it yourself:
The netizens were quick to react and they absolutely loved this makeover of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga.
NOT ONLY BECAUSE OF YOUR SONG BUT THIS FILM ITSELF IS GOING TO BE SUPER HIT ❤️ AND YOUR MUSIC GONNA MAKE IT MORE BEAUTIFUL 💙
