Bollywood is no stranger to picking up the old songs and giving them a new spin. In fact, there are songs that got a fantastic makeover after the old records were transformed into digital format with a hint of contemporary music. However, there are times when the composers forget the fact that some lines should never be crossed. Here are five popular Hindi songs whose remix entirely went downhill. It won’t be wrong to say that they are epic fails.
1. Aaj Jaane Ki Zid Na Karo
This ‘Nazm’ is a beautiful creation by Pakistani poet Fayyaz Hashmi that became immortal when sung by famous singer Farida Khanum in her melodious voice.
This classic song was recently remixed for Karan Johar’s movie ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.’ The song that had the capability to touch your innermost emotions was successfully ruined in this version.
2. Humma Humma
Composed by A. R. Rahman for the Movie Bombay, this song kept us intoxicated with both its music and lyrics.
It was later used in the movie ‘Ok Jaanu,’ with a heavy dose of rap. Listening to this song made us die a little from inside.
3. Laila o Laila
The original song is from the movie ‘Qurbani’ released in 1980. With music from Kalyanji-Anandji, it was featured on Zeenat Aman. Popular in its time, this number is considered as one of the evergreen songs ever made.
Thanks to the trend of remix, this song was carefully killed when reused in the movie ‘Raees.’ Despite Ram Sampath’s musical arrangement and Javed Akhtar’s additional lyrics, this song featuring Sunny Leone and SRK didn’t sit well with the viewers.
4. Chatur Naar
If you are a Bollywood lover, there is no way you could miss this song. This classic hilarious song will leave you in splits due to its funny lyrical and musical punch.
The new version of this song featured in the movie ‘Machine’ starts with the line “This will make your ass shake.” Do we really need to say anything more?
5. Tamma Tamma
One of the 90s song featuring Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt has made many shake a leg with its tune.
Despite having stunning set and better choreography, the new version fails to make an impression. The reason? Unchecked use of heady music and rap!
Which version scarred you the most?
