Upcoming Bollywood film Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, which features Sonam Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Anil Kapoor in lead roles, is a coming of age romance. And no romance is complete without a shaadi number. The film’s first song, Ishq Mitha — which is a fresh rendition of an all-time shaadi classic — is out and we are not sure if we like it that much.
Being termed the ‘first wedding song of the year’, Ishq Mitha has got a lot of people excited and even though it is not outright disappointing, it is certainly over-hyped.
The song might grow on you but is still not as groovy as the original composed and sung by Malkit Singh and Bally Sagoo. The title track of the film featured Rajkummar as Sahil Mirza and gave us an insight into his one-sided love for Sweety played by Sonam. Now, in this new track, we are introduced to another suitor for the actress played by Akshay Oberoi.
The rendition composed by Rochak Kohli and sung by Navraj Hans and Harshdeep Kaur might be trending on social media, but we are really done with all these remixes coming out of Bollywood. It’s about time Indian producers/musicians push the envelope and create some original music.
The film is slated for release on February 1. Listen to the song and let us know what you think:
