"Miley sur mera tumhara"- however the original one

I happened to watch the new 'Miley sur mera tumhara' song and it proved to be a disappointment. May be because the original song had set the bar so high that the remake couldn't match the expectations. I think the very concept of remake makes its success precarious as it lacks the originality and the imagination that attracts people to it. Also I think the original song was more people focused and it showed prominent personalities intermingled and mixed with the other common folks. On the contrary this one looks like a bollywood trailer or a star kid promotion video-it does not have the depth and the creativity that such a piece of art warrants. It seems that the soul is missing from the song. Its like what 'Ramu ki aag' has done to 'Sholey'.

I am glad to share the original piece.

I love the original version! Hey, I think everyone loves that!
Lends a feeling of Indianness doesnt it?

Certainly, the new version is nowhere near the older one. They should have composed something else in words as well as tune as also the clippings to depict the same meaning ie, unity in diversity.

Satyu said...

Yeah, Even I love the original track.
though the new one shows the rich n varied culture of India.. I dun knw.. I like the original one more than the new one.

I have not heard the new version... Like everyone else, I loved the old version (perhaps partly because after hearing it so many times one starts liking the familiar track)...
