What will be your reaction if you had the lifetime offer to get a brand new life?
I hope you’re not one of that – DUKHI HO GAYA HOON MAIN ZINDAGI SE that you don’t want live a new one after you are over with this one…
KHURKI thinks that everyone would love to a have new life and obviously it is beautiful to be on such a wonderful planet!
Same is the case with old hits being remade in Bollywood… They say that ‘Old is Gold‘ but why are we spoiling the melody and beauty of old songs?
KHURKI wants your help to figure out whether it’s the new trend of Bollywood or we’re just short of time and lyrics that we pick up the old versions and modify them?
Here are some old songs with a so-called new life…
1. Main Tenu Samjhavan Ki – Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania
2. Bachna Ae Haseeno – Bachna Ae Haseeno
Ranbir Kapoor guys, says it all!
3. Raat Akeli Hai – Ragini MMS
4. Main Hoon Don – Don
Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Don’ was something different from this one and hence, can never be replaced!
5. Dheere Dheere Se…Ashiqui
This song is remade by Yo Yo Honey Singh in the loving memory of Shri Gulshan Kumar. And he has done it!
6. Hawa Hawai – Shaitaan
Sridevi’s version was more attracting, No?
7. Khai ke Paan Banaras Waala – Don
Looks like Shahrukh wants to walk on Amitabh Bachchan’s path…
8. Apni to Jaise Taise – Housefull
Mika Singh doesn’t disappoint us in this one…
9. Tayyab Ali – Shootout at Wadala
Imran Khan trying to copy Rishi Kapoor…
10. Mere Mehboob Qayamat Hogi
Well tried Honey Singh… But some things just are irreplaceable i.e Kishore Kumar!
11. Mehbooba Mehbooba – Ram Gopal Verma Ki Aag
Old songs used as item numbers to promote films?
12. Khoya Khoya Chand – Shaitaan
The old version was sung by Mohammad Rafi Sahib and music was given by Sir S.D. Burman.
13. Ek Haseena Thi – Karzzz
I don’t think this song in any way gives competition to the old version sung by Kishore Da and Asha Bhosle..
14. Jaane Tu Mera Kya Hai – Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
Kaise maine na jaana, ke pyaar yehi hai … ye jaane tu ya jaane na…
15. Har Kisi Ko Nahin Milta Yahan Pyaar Zindagi Mein – Boss
The new version sung by Arijit Singh and Neeti Mohan.
16. Disco Deewane – Student Of The Year
There are some more songs which have been remade in various movies… Well, thumbs up to the remakes and for the people who’ve changed the taste according to the modern era!
