Director Sajid Khan attempted a huge feat by trying to recreate the six-minute long song 'Naino Mein Sapna' from 'Himmatwala'. While the 1983 flick has Jeetendra and Sridevi in the lead, the reprise features Ajay Devgn and south siren Tamannaah. But which version of the two do you prefer? We pit the original against the remix and try to single out a clear winner!



Sajid Khan gave the original opening shot of Jeetendra with a feather duster a skip in the remake. In the 1983 song, when the feather didn't work, it took a kiss to bring Sri to life. Ajay makes no such attempt with his livewire heroine. Have our heroes grown more prudish or is Ajay just afraid of wife Kajol's reaction to an onscreen liplock?

For carrying off the maximum bling in style, Sridevi wins hands down.

Sridevi

Sridevi is seen decked up in the original song from the 1983 flick, 'Himmatwala'.

 

The voluptuous heroine was adorned from head to foot, with jewellery around her head, neck, waist and ankles! Tamannaah's outfit seemed far lighter, which probably made running around a lot more easier.

Of the two heroes, Jeetendra is definitely the better dancer. Ajay Devgn seems to have a tough time coping with the fast pace of the music, and his stiff moves are laughable when compared to Jeetu's graceful style.

Himmatwala

Ajay Devgn dances terribly in the new version of the song 'Naino Mein Sapna' .

 

The makers wanted to retain the musical flavor of Kishore Kumar's voice, which would explain why singer Amit Kumar (Kishore da's own son) was chosen to sing the duet with Shreya Ghoshal. Shreya takes over from the bewitching voice of Lata Mangeshkar. The similar voice quality of the male singers lends itself well to keep the song fresh, yet familiar.

That said, we think the original song is definitely far better than the remix! What do you think? Tell us in the comments ection!

'Transcendence' review: The film is clunky and lifeless

If Spike Jonze's 'Her' imagined a delicate, heartfelt romance between man and his artificially intelligent operating system, then 'Transcendence', directed by Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister, takes a less optimistic view of the future, cautioning us about the dangers of relying too heavily on technology. They're two sides of the same coin, but where 'Her' felt fresh, original, and forward-looking, Pfister's film trades in familiar clichés.
