Bollywood is in full swing at making some of the greatest Classical songs into remixes, but why? How did it become so trending? There has been tremendous progress in the reprised versions of the old tracks. Here’s why.
If you have the Bollywood keeda in you, you would be very annoyed by the extent the Hindi film industry has gone to earn some extra bucks. The essence of Bollywood’s originality when it comes to music is becoming a load of rubbish. And the one who is at a loss is the original copyright holders of that track. It feels like their efforts have all gone wrong and feel cheated upon (watch this video on AR Rahman expressing his disappointment on remakes of old songs).
Some of the legendary 90s songs like The Humma Song, Laila Mein Laila, Gulabi Aankhein, Dilbar, and many more were remade into reprised versions. People did express their disappointment on the issue, but surely they earned much more than the disappointing words of the masses. At the end of the day, as it’s said, “Money Talks.” Well, isn’t that what just matters anyways? (Ouch!)
Though a few remade songs were terrific and deserved the appreciation surely, not all matched the standards and were utterly ridiculous. Why is Bollywood making such remakes and spoiling the original music? Maybe a modern touch to the old classic would keep them alive for a more extended period is what they have in their minds.
Here are some remade songs that surely would have been better if they were left as they are!
