Baaghi 2's Ek Do Teen Song Is Proof That Bollywood Is All Up To Ruin Iconic Songs!
It is not unknown anymore that Bollywood is suffering from a major creative block. It is even more evident in the songs that are being made nowadays. For almost 5 years now, Bollywood has been continuously using and remixing old songs. The sacrilege only leaves the songs ruined.
The latest of such songs that suffered a similar fate is the iconic Madhuri Dixit song, Ek Do Teen. I mean who does not remember Madhuri and her moves in the song that became a rage. The song has made its comeback in Baaghi 2 and this time Jacqueline Fernandez stepped onto the shoes of Mohini. A glimpse of the effect was seen in the teaser, but now that the makers have released an one and a half minute clip of the song, we can say that the result is heartbreaking.
With Madhuri Dixit's Mohini, we have always associated poise and grace. In fact, the way she expresses and emotes was something every teenager wanted to copy at that time. Needless to say, Jacqueline had a tough job at hand and sadly she couldn't match her footsteps.
There are ample visuals of her lips instead of her eyes and the thumping and pelvic thrusts look all odd. The entire effortless that we found in the original has been replaced by steps that look forced. Well, it would not be an exaggeration to call the song blasphemous.
The camera hovers over Jacqueline's bare naval for most time possible and it is also kind of unsettling to see the men around ogle at her. The steps make it even worse.
Let us just wind up by saying that the song looked so unappealing that even Shreya Ghoshal could not save it.
