There used to be a time, when one or two out of ten songs would be remixes of old tracks. However, the scene is quite the opposite today, since it is the age of remixes and remakes, we have 1 or 2 original songs coming out once in a while and all the rest are remixes of old songs, redone with some speedy rap and some matching EDM beats, to present it in a new avatar. And yet again, we have the much awaited remix of the popular classic dance number “Mungda” and this time, we have Sonakshi rocking to its tunes, for the upcoming movie Total Dhamaal.
The original song “Mungda” was made for the movie Inkaar in 1977, and it had the famous item girl of the yesteryears, Helen dancing to its tunes. While it will be injustice to compare Sonakshi with Helen, since the song is a remix of the old classic, a comparison is bound to come up. Sonakshi, however, does good justice to the attitude of the song and we won’t say that we hated watching the remix much. What caught our attention more was her physical transformation. Her toned body, and the perfect outfits appropriate for the song’s feel to be brought out, is something that makes us love Sonakshi in this groovy number.
The remade version of Mungda has been sung by Jyotica Tangri, Shaan, and Subhro Ganguly and Jyotica did not go wrong in keeping the appeal intact through her voice. The original song was sung by Usha Mangeshkar, and the music was composed by Rajesh Roshan. The original lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri have not been altered much, except for the introductory stanza, and the rap. The additional lyrics in the remix have been penned by Kunwar Juneja, while credits for the rap lyrics go to Gourov Dasgupta. The rearrangement of the entire song to present it in its new attire was done by Gourov Dasgupta and Roshin Babu jointly, and we must say, that this remix has not spoilt the original track, but has just presented it in a new wrap keeping it abreast with the current trends in music.
Overall, the new Mungda from Total Dhamaal has all the components to become a party rocker again. Total Dhamaal by Indra Kumar, is all set to release on 22nd February, 2019 and comedy lovers are eager to catch hold of this madness again.
