After treating us with a 25-second teaser, the makers of ‘Baaghi 2’ have finally released the full video track of ‘Ek Do Teen’. The small clip did manage to get our expectations high for a while back then, but now that the complete song is out, we have mixed feelings.
In a bid to recreate the iconic song that ruled the charts for weeks and months back in the 1980s, Jacqueline Fernandez stepped into Madhuri Dixit’s shoes looking her hottest best. But did she achieve what Madhuri did?
There is no doubt that Jacqueline’s sexy moves and sultry hotness will make this song the flavor of the season. But it’s not enough. Especially for kids who grew up watching and dancing to Madhuri’s songs, this remixed version of ‘Ek Do Teen’, is all glossy and colorful but lacks the very essence of the original one.
Jacqueline does her best as the modern day Mohini but the video completely fails to replicate the old magic. But then again, we can’t really blame Jacqueline as it is the legendary Madhuri Dixit she is being compared to.
Madhuri was the epitome of sexiness and she had the ability to make hearts race faster the second she appeared on the screen. From her smile to her ‘latkas’ and ‘jhatkas’, she was simply a dream to watch on the silver screen.
Jacqueline is fabulous, and we are sure that people are going to love her sizzling avatar, but there will be many who will wish that this song wasn’t experimented with in the first place.
And the basic reason is that you can’t match up to Madhuri. You can’t replicate her and honestly, you can’t even try to recreate what originally belonged to her. It’s simple, there is just one Madhuri Dixit!
Blame us for being biased, but you can’t argue with the simple fact that Madhuri was extraordinary!
The song was originally choreographed by Saroj Khan and now has been redesigned by Ganesh Acharya. However, we do appreciate the new steps and the modern touch added to the evergreen chartbuster, but some pieces are iconic and Bollywood needs to understand that. How about some originality from our tinsel town makers?
The new version of the song has been created for ‘Baaghi 2’. This is the second installment of the ‘Baaghi’ franchise starring Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani. The film is all set to hit the theatres on March 30.
