It’s been a while since we have been waiting for this season’s new party anthem and too much of our demand, the team of Baar Baar Dekho released its party throb song “Kala Chashma” which can surely make you twirl and compel you to get those great and easy signature steps the song has. The song, which features Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra, is definitely a dance number which will now be all over the playlists.
Katrina looks gorgeously fit in the video of this song where she flaunts her abs while she wears a resembling look from here “Shiela Ki Jawani” days. Sidharth Malhotra promises a good dance move in the song matching to the best of his effort to queen Katrina. But the question is why a remake again? Does our Bollywood music industry lack originality? Also, why ‘refresh’ an old hit by simply having Badshah rap in it? There are no music composers to work on original stuff? Is everyone simply looking at jazzing up an existing hit?
Kala Chashma is the reworked, retuned version of the yesteryear’s hit ‘Tenu Kala chasma jach da eh’. Bollywood is full of examples of such songs which found popularity and only then a place in a Bollywood film. Look at these examples: ‘Chull’ (Kapoor and Sons) and ‘Saturday’ (Humpty Sharma ki Dulhaniya), ‘Soch Na Sake’ (Airlift) and ‘Tung Tung Baje’ (Singh is Bling). There is also ‘Tamil Fever’, ‘Gud Naal Ishq Mitha’ and ‘Zaroori Tha’. These were all songs which were sung by artists, found a fanbase and were then picked up by Bollywood music directors to be “reworked”.
Well, with the above notions of doubts & questions we leave you here to watch the song by yourself and judge whether you like it or not!
