O Saki Saki: The Batla House song fails to beat the original but Nora Fatehi’s dance moves steal the show nevertheless

O Saki Saki: The Batla House song fails to beat the original but Nora Fatehi's dance moves steal the show nevertheless

Finally, the much-awaited song, actually remake, O Saki O Saki from Batla House is out. The hype around the number is huge, especially after the magic Nora Fatehi created with Dilbar Dilbar. Koena Mitra, the actress on whom the original song was filmed tweeted that the new one sounded like a mess. That also generated attention for the video. Coming to the actual remake itself, Nora Fatehi looks and dances like a Goddess. Her grace, flexibility and sensuousness keep your eyes fixated on her. With that rose, sequinned bustier top and red skirt, Nora Fatehi looks like a sexy gypsy lady, just as we see in the movies. It will instantly remind you of some songs of the ’90s. Coming to the picturization, it is nothing innovative per se. The new version has been sung by Tulsi Kumar, Neha Kakkar and B Praak. The track has been recreated and written by Tanishk Bagchi while the original was composed by Vishal- Shekhar. It has some new lyrics but the sound is that of the original.

The old one from the film Musafir was way ahead of its time in terms of sound, dance and picturization. Koena Mitra exuded a lot of oomph and though they may not be a prolific a dancer as Nora did complete justice to the beats and rhythm of the number. And she did a step that was just like what Urvashi Rautela did in Aashiq Banaya Aapne in 2018. And it was sung by two powerhouses, Sukhwinder Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan. In the new one, we miss their vocals and of course, the presence of Sanjay Dutt who added the swag. Music wise, the original is still better.

BL Verdict: However, the new version of O Saki O Saki is one of the best ones we are hearing this year. It might not be as creative as the new version of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga but is good. It will rank along with the likes of Yeh Jawaani remake in Student Of The Year 2. Stay tuned to BL for more scoops and updates!

 

Kala Chashma mashup: Sunny Deol’s moves give serious competition to Katrina

The Katrina Kaif-Sidharth Malhotra song ‘Kala Chashma’ from the film Baar Baar Dekho has been trending ever since it was released a few days ago. Tacking on to the trend is a mashup video by Socially Awkward.

The mashup version features visuals from Sunny Deol’s  song ‘Chhammak Chhallo Zara Dhire Challo’ from the movie Ajay (1996) to the tunes of ‘Kala Chashma‘.

A still from Sunny Deol's 'Chhammak Chhallo'

The result: a nostalgic and fun watch.

The video has had people in splits, and with good reason. Sunny Deol’s dance moves, in which he is ably accompanied by Karisma Kapoor, seem like they were made just for ‘Kala Chasma’!

Another highlight of the video is ‘special effects’ in between — definitely eye-catching!

And while the choreography in ‘Kala Chasma’ is all that is trendy and contemporary, the throwback to the typical Bollywood dance routines of the ’90s makes for a fun change.

There are several spoof versions of ‘Kala Chashma‘ that have been shared on social media, but Sunny’s version has proved to be by far the most popular.
