Here we go again. How many times do we have to say this? If it isn’t broke don’t fix it, but Bollywood is hell-bent on butchering classics in remixes and reboots. Now they’ve created a botched remix of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s ‘Kinna Sona‘.
Bollywood’s upcoming flick Marjaavaan released its latest track ‘Kinna Sona‘. The remix has been sung by Meet Bros, Jubin Nuatiyal and Dhvani Bhanushali.
Kinna Sona by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
The original ‘qawwali’ Kinna Sona is one of legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s most famous works. In the past Bollywood had him create Bollywood renditions of many of his works like Kinna Sona, Tu Chez Baadi Hai Mast (rather than Dam-mast Qalander), Dil Lagi, etc.
Recently we have seen Bollywood stuck in a rut of remakes and remixes. Fans are calling this an attempt to cash in on classics. Many songs of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan are being recomposed, and every time they have been a huge letdown.
This time is no different. While the Indian music community wasn’t a fan of Saki Saki and Tip Tip Barsa Pani remixes, Indian critics are showering praises over this latest track Kinna Sona.
These people should listen to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s ultimate track to realize how it’s done.
The legendary Qawwal Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan created a bulk of 90s tracks such as Mere Rashke Qamar, Tere Bin Dil Nahi Lagda, Piya Re Piya Re, etc.
Mere Rashke Qamar and Tu Chez Badi Hai Mast are other Nusrat Fateh Ali tracks that have been remixed recently.
Marjaavaan cast Sidharth Malhotra, Riteish Deshmukh, Tara Sutaria, and Rakul Preet Singh. Mila Zaveri is directing the film scheduled for release on November, 15, 2019.
