Taki O Taki
Sajid Khan has not only adapted the old Himmatwala to the contemporary scenario he has even kept the songs from the original as they were. Naino Mein Sapna is already out, and now it’s time to do Taki O Taki a la Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah.
There is so much hype surrounding the new Himmatwala starring Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah that director Sajid Khan even claims that the film would be a sell-out in the first weekend. Whoa! The confident director has also promised Ajay Devgn that the film will be a surefire "100-crore hit". Well, presenting old wine in a new bottle is not everyone’s cup of tea!
If Naino Mein Sapna is over-the-top beach song with gaudy outfits and hundreds of dancers, Taki Taki is the bedroom jig between Ajay and Tamannaah.
Even if it’s tough for Ajay Devgn to dance like Jeetendra, his clumsy efforts are worth watching, but it’s Tamannaah who literally shines throughout the song. Actor Mahesh Manjrekar, who plays father-in-law in the flick, also joins the couple and does Taki Taki, adding a fun element to the song.
The rehashed version of Taki Taki is crooned by Mika and Shreya Ghoshal, and though the composers Sajid-Wajid have done little to revamp this famous Bappi Lahiri composition, Mika’s voice does the trick, and renders the song a contemporary feel.
