I am sure all the Bollywood Music Lovers, have danced to the tune of the peppy ‘humma humma’ song. It is one of the most popular Bollywood Number of Remo Fernandez, from the film Bombay. More than Sonali Bendre and Nagesh Prasad in the song, it was Remo’s voice which made the dance number top the charts. After 16 years, we see a comeback of the song ‘humma humma’ but ofcourse with its remixed version.
The new humma humma has Aditya kapoor and Shraddha kapoor soaring the tempo. The bedroom scene is recreated with some steaming close ups of Shraddha and Aditya Roy Kapur.
But it seems not everyone is going ga ga over the rehashed version. Though some found the version too cute, (credit goes to Aditya Roy Kapur), some have denounced the recreated piece. Aditya Kapoor’s expressions are a special attraction to the song. Infact fans are saying the sizzling quotient of Shraddha Kapoor was clouded with Aditya’s cool, sexy and cute expressions.
But there are some who just can’t get over the original version of the song. Twitter had mixed reviews for the recreated humma humma. While some are drooling over the new peppy version, some denounce the new and uphold the nineties version.
Remo The Original Voice of Humma Humma
When the original singer Remo Fernandez was asked how he feels about the reprised piece his reaction do not surprise us.
He said there is nothing wrong in reprising an old song. But the remastered piece should add value to the song. It should contain something more from the original song. What does the new humma humma song add on to? It is not even anything different. It is pale and insipid version of the original. It looks like a hurry down vocally, instrumentally and arrangement wise.
Tanishk and the Rapper Badshah
Tanishk composed the reversed music and Badshah gave his voice. Tanishk adds the new version is a tribute to A.R Rahman Sir. Though some people are mad at Badshah for trying to remaster the song, Tanishk said some section liked the song.
What we think is, if reprising some old hit numbers is a trend, then ‘OK Jaanu’ has just followed the trend with a ’90’s hit’. If we compare it with the original, it surely might not level. Arvind Swammy and Manisha Koirala had a special charm in the original humma humma. So let’s just enjoy the number as just another reprised peppy version. What do you think?
