New version of 'O Saaki' draws flak

MUMBAI: Some are missing Sukhwinder Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan's strong vocals, while others feel the original is too fresh to be touched. Reactions received to the recreated version of O Saki Saki in the upcoming Batla House have been mixed so far. The original song was sung by Sukhwinder and Sunidhi for the 2004 film, Musafir.

One of the singers of the new version, Tulsi Kumar, says that every person is entitled to his or her viewpoint, and she looked at the bright side.

Tulsi stated, "O Saki Saki is getting an amazing response. The entire packaging of the song (is good). I think Tanishk Bagchi has recreated it beautifully."

Unveiled on 15 July 2019, O Saki Saki from Batla House has fetched 31,829,208 views on YouTube till date.

"There are new lyrics and a new composition in the song. Of course, the hook has been retained from the original song. As for criticism, I would say that every person can have a view. A lot of people are giving it a lot of love, looking at the bright side. Some are not liking it but that's their personal choice," Tulsi added.

Tap below for one of the most liked remakes:

 Koena Mitra, the actress who featured in the original song, criticizes this remake and states- "My song from Musafir -Saaki - has been recreated. The combination of Sunidhi, Sukhwinder, Vishal and Shekhar are outstanding. Didn't like the new version, it's a mess!"

So far, the response of the audience has been pretty amazing. The Bollywood industry is currently into several remixes and remakes, most of which, end up being disliked by the public (often due to immense love for the original). Even then, O Saki Saki has managed to be among the top trending songs.
