Today's Bollywood reeling under lyrical bankruptcy!

  • Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma starrer Bombay Velvet has been in the news ever since it launched. The movie is set in the 1960's era and Anurag Kashyap has left no stone unturned to get the authentic feel of that time in the film. To give the theme of the movie the right music, Anushka who plays a jazz singer, Rosie Noronha, performs on the classic song 'Jaata Kahan Hai Diwane' which was originally sung by Geeta Dutt in the 1956 movie, CID. The same song is titled, 'Fifi' and used in Bombay Velvet.

  • Sunny Leone stole all our hearts when she danced on the new version of the extremely famous track 'Dholi Taaro' in her last release Ek Paheli Leela. The number was first featured in the 1998 movie Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam starring Aishwarya Rai and Salman Khan. Sunny is seen as a Rajasthani girl in Leela and is shaking a leg on this historic number. Sadly neither the famous song nor Sunny's sexy moves could save the film from flopping badly at the box-office.

  • Since its release, the movie Queen has been a hit among the audience for a lot of reasons.

The song has gone to become one of the biggest hits of 2014, some say that it is even more popular today than when it had originally come out in the 1973 movie Anhonee and was performed by Bindu.

  • The song 'Har Kisi Ko Nahi Milta' was a hit when it was performed by Feroz Khan in 1986. A more contemporary version of the song was used as a promotional number in the movie Boss and was picturised on the star of the film, Akshay Kumar and actress Sonakshi Sinha. When the classic track was revamped in Boss, it was a hit amongst the listeners of today because the music had a beautiful, soulful feel to it. The musical duo, Kalyanji-Anandji had composed the earlier song.

  • Bollywood hunk John Abraham's movie I, Me Aur Main was an absolute failure at the box-office but it did create an interest among the music lovers with its song 'Na Jaane Kahan Se Aaya Hai' which was a female version of the song from Sridevi's Chaalbaaz. In the 1989 film, the number is sung for Sridevi by a group of men, including Sunny Deol. While in I, Me Aur Main, it was performed by the female protagonists Chitrangada Singh and Prachi Desai for John Abraham. The new version of the song has quite a sensuous feel to it and hence is quite popular.

  • Amitabh Bachchan's iconic portrayal of the titular character in Don was recreated by superstar Shah Rukh Khan in the 2006 remake of the classic movie. Director Farhan Akhtar had taken the same theme of the movie but showed the movie in the new age era. Only two songs from the original film were taken, one was the extremely famous item number by Helen, 'Ye Mera Dil' and second was the all time legendary song 'Khaike Paan Banaras Wala'  performed by Big B himself. Both these tracks were retained in the remake but with little tweaks. Kareena Kapoor danced in the footsteps of Helen as SRK gave his indualistic streak to the song with a rap in between 'Khaike Paan Banaras Wala.'

  • Madhuri Dixit set the male hearts on fire when she did the sexy 'Dhak Dhak Karne Laga' in the movie Beta. The song was heard again in the movie Nautanki Saala performed by the leading characters of the film, Ayushmann Khuranna, Kunaal Roy Kapoor, Pooja Salvi and Evelyn Sharma. Even though Pooja looked quite good in the orange saree signifying a link to the original song, it did not even come near to reach the magic that was created by Madhuri, the one and only, Dhak-Dhak girl.

  • Bombay Talkies might not have wanted the romantic notion that is attached to the classic song, 'Ajeeb Dastan Hai Yeh' but they did manage to portray it in a satirical way that is completely opposite to how it was originally picturised in the 1963 film Dil Apne Aur Preet Parai. In Bombay Talkies the song is performed by a young girl who is crooning the song to beg for money on a railway station. It does not have the rosy feel to it like it did when it was performed by the beautiful Meena Kumari.

  • The song 'Babuji Dheere Chalna' sung by the melodious Geeta Dutt in Aar Paar was quite unlike its new rendition in the movie Salaam-E-Ishq. In the 2007 movie, the song is a sexy version, picturised on Anjana Sukhani and Anil Kapoor. Surely the old fashioned artists would be a little shocked to see these new adaptations of their masterpieces.

  • The latest buzz in Bollywood is that Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt's upcoming movie, Shaandaar will feature the old dance classic, 'Eena Meena Deeka' which was first performed by none other than the maestro himself, Kishore Kumar and India's nightangle Lata Mangeshkar.
