When you lack new ideas and time to create new things, you often go to the old successful stuff and recreate it with some changes. This formula is used even in Bollywood where the filmmaking teams are always chasing deadlines and looking for maximum profits.
There is hardly any time for creativity, so filmmakers go for remakes, sequels and remixes of old hit films and songs. Sometimes they come out with good results and the sometimes they end up making blunders.
In this article, we’ll talk about some great songs which were remixed by Bollywood and the result was forgettable.
1. Mundiyan To Bach Ke Rahi
The super hit song of Punjabi MC, Mundiyan To Bach Ke Rahi was remixed by Baaghi 2 makers and it was a total disappointment.
2. Dheere Dheere
Aashiqui’s famous love song Dheere Dheere was remixed by Honey Singh. It was badly trolled because the essence of original was totally lost and remix didn’t have any soul.
Marathi film Sairat’s famous song Zingaat was remixed for the Bollywood remake of film titled Dhadak. The remake was a Hit but the remix of song was a disappointment.
4. Humma Humma
Humma Humma from Bombay was remixed for Bollywood film OK Jaanu. The remix was fine but the rap by Badshah looked forced and used purely to make the song a Hit.
5. Tote Tote Ho Gaya
Hans Raj Hans’ song Tote Tote Ho Gaya was forever ruined as it was remixed as Chote Chote Peg for Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety.
6. Har Kisiko Nahi Milta
The beautiful song from Jaanbaaz was remixed as a promotional song for Akshay Kumar’s film Boss.
7. Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas
This beautiful song by Kishore Kumar from film Blackmail was also rehashed by modern Bollywood for a film like Wajah Tum Ho. Even the singer Arijit Singh himself was angry because the final output was not as he had expected.
8. Dum Maaro Dum
This old song from film Hare Krishna Hare Ram was recreated by modern Bollywood for the film titled Dum Maaro Dum. The new one has been forgotten and original is still remembered.
9. Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast
Mohra’s Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast was recreated for Machine and it was a huge let down.
10. Laila o Laila
This was a classic song from the film Qurbani. However, it got spoiled after it was remixed for SRK starrer Raees.
