The remake is more pacier and vibrant than the original
By Mayur Lookhar
Last week, the makers of Pati Patni Aur Woh released their trailer that largely got a positive response. The trailer gave a glimpse into the film and its music. With Tanishk Bagchi as composer, how can one not have a remake or two. The trailer made it clear that the film will have the Aankhiyon Se Goli Maare remake. Producers T-Series, Juno Chopra though have first released the remake of Dheeme Dheeme, the popular single from Tony Kakkar. The single has featured actress model Neha Sharma.
The remake in Pati Patni Aur Woh is more pacey, vibrant turning it into a peppy dance number. Composer Tanishk Bagchi usually tends to add a vibrant rhythm to the remake numbers. The lyrics of the original were never flattering. It’s purely Kakkar’s singing style and the peppy tunes that makes his brand of music poplar.
Often the remakes tend to feature one odd new verse, but Bagchi has only used the core verse from Kakkar’s original. The focus shifts from the man to the women in the remake with the added lyrics [by Mellow D] going to singer Neha Kakkar, who is the voice for the Ananya Panday and Bhumi Pednekar in the song. It would be wrong to call them added lyrics, for they really form the bulk of the writing. Neha Kakkar wouldn’t complain for she literally gets her version of Dheeme Dheeme. She has her critics, but there are not many voices that can light up a party track.
The original had nice smooth rhythm while the remake is pacier. This reviewer was impressed by the mellow rhythm of the original. Perhaps, the original is more alluring but the remake, too, offers its charm. Well, this charm largely stems from the peppy score and the choreography by Bosco Martis.
Kartik Aaryan enjoys a huge fan base. It’s hard to recall him dance so gracefully ever before. The key to a good dance is one surrendering itself to the music. And Aaryan has danced like there is no tomorrow.
Choreographer Bosco Martis sums it up, “It was such a fun ride choreographing this song. Working with Kartik, Bhumi and Ananya, was not at all a teaching experience but more like a party session. Those were the happy dancing days with the trio.’
The other big attraction of the song are the film’s leading ladies – Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday. The latter is a young 21-year-old pretty girl but it really is Pednekar who raises the mercury in the track. Not that Pednekar is a seasoned actress. Without objectifying any woman, but there are few women who look as sexy in a saree as Bhumi Pednekar. It’s always hard to move freely in a sari. So, a saree-actress needs to charm with her natural beauty and expressions. And it is here that Pednekar bowls you over.
The song is a neat portrayal of the film’s storyline. A much married Chintu Tyagi [Aaryan] seeking love from his office colleague Tapasya [Anandya Panday], while Vedika Tyagi [Pednekar] pulling over her man through her traditional yet sexy charm.
Overall, the remake is a shade a below the original but it sure is bound to be a hit peppy number.
Watch the remake and the original song below.
Pati Patni Aur Woh is set to be released on 6 December.
