Reprising and recreating of old chartbusters is the latest trend in B-town. From ‘Kala Chashma’ to ‘Tamma Tamma’, many 90s hit tracks have been rehashed lately but not every experiment is successful.

Remember those famous lyrics, “Neend churayi meri kisne o sanam….Tu ne”? Well, every kid born in the 90s has grooved to ‘Neend Churai Meri’ from the cult film ‘Ishq’.

Anu Malik’s music, Kumar Sanu, and Udit Narayan’s voice were all that was needed to create a Bollywood hit number during those days. The song not only ruled the music charts for weeks but also become everyone’s favourite song. 

And finally, Rohit Shetty has released the reprised version of 90’s hit song in his upcoming flick ‘Golmaal Again’. This is the first time that the same actor is seen in the recreated version of his own song. 20 years ago, this song debuted in the Ajay Devgn, Kajol, Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla starrer ‘Ishq’ and now the same track has been reprised in ‘Golmaal Again’ as ‘Maine Tujko Dekha’. Though, after listening to the new track we wish what happened 20 years ago was left untouched.

Sadly, Rohit and Ajay had a different plan. What Anu Malik created once, has now been crushed by the same hands. Nor do you get Kajol’s and Ajay’s peppy chemistry and neither does the song leaves a real impact. This new track is an utter disappointment and makes you wonder why the track was even remade in the first place. 

The song focuses on Parineeti Chopra as Ajay tries to woo her, and I so wish I could say this song didn’t destroy those memories, but I just can’t. Growing up listening to this epic song is one thing that will stay with many kids who were born in 90’s. Even today, when the song comes on, one can’t refrain from grooving to its beats and sing along, exhausting our vocal cords. That was the magic of that cult song!

There is nothing new that this song offers. You are presented with Ajay’s trademark steps and a train to sequence from ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’. It seems like producers these days are hell-bent on ruining every old song. 

Ajay and Rohit, congratulations on royally messing up yet another 90’s song.

Veteran singers Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik turned down the songs of AR Rahman’s National Award-winning 1992 hit, Roja.

“When we were offered the project, we didn’t know who Rahman was. We would record five songs a day back then. Travelling to Chennai for recording seemed difficult,” says Yagnik, as Sanu adds, “That’s perhaps the greatest regret of our career. The album had such beautiful songs. We wish we had sung them.”

Rehashing popular old number is the new trend in Bollywood. Well, we ain’t complaining; after all, the recreated version becomes our party song of the year. From ‘Kala Chashma’ to ‘Tamma Tamma’, a lot many 90s hit tracks have been rehashed lately, garnering huge numbers on the internet.

Remember those famous lyrics, “Neend churayi meri kisne o sanam….Tu ne”? Don’t know about you, but every kid born in the 90s has grooved to ‘Neend Churai Meri’ from the cult film ‘Ishq’. Anu Malik’s music, Kumar Sanu and Udit Narayan’s voice, what else do you need to create a Bollywood hit? The song became so huge after it was released that it ruled the music charts for weeks.

What if this song was recreated as well; wouldn’t we all just love that? Joining the bandwagon of remixes is director Rohit Shetty. He is all set to bring a rehashed version of this popular song in his upcoming flick ‘Golmaal Again’.

Wondering who will be composing Anu Malik’s song? It’s none other than his student Amaal Mallik. Speaking to a leading daily he said, “I am doing two songs for the film, one among which is Neend Churayi. It’s a big responsibility. It is also a tribute to my uncle, Anu Malik, who composed the original. We will retain the hook line and add new verses to the song. It will suit the mood of the film.”

I don’t know what happens to me on stage. Something else seems to take over ! #AMLive #Singer #Soundcheck #Music

Though Amaal is working on the composition, the singer is yet to be confirmed. Well, whoever he/she is, they definitely have huge shoes to fill in.

Interestingly, Ajay Devgn who grooved to this song with his now wife Kajol in 1997 will be seen taking the dance floor once again. We just hope we get to see Kajol making a cameo in the song as well; after all, how can we imagine that song without her?

The shooting of ‘Golmaal 4′ has begun and the film also stars Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Kunal Khemu and Shreyas Talpade. Kareena who has been part of the last two films will not be seen in this one. However, joining the ‘Golmaal’ family now are Tabu and Parineeti Chopra.
