Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga which is touted as the most unusual love story of the year is one of the most anticipated films. The trailer of the film also received praises from all the quarters. A few days ago, the makers released a recreated soul-stirring version of the original track Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. And now, they have released another remixed song which will surely be in the playlist this wedding season. The song is a recreated version of Bally Sagoo and Malkit Singh's Gur Naal Ishq Mitha that featured Malaika Arora and Jas Arora.
 
The peppy Punjabi number was a superhit back then, and now, the song has got a new spin and the reprised version features Sonam Kapoor, Akshay Oberoi and Anil Kapoor. Just like the original song, we can see similar Mehendi function setting. Also, the flirting between Akshay and Sonam Kapoor reminds us of Jas and Malaika's wooing scenes. But the reprised version lacks the foot-tapping groovy music that the Malaika starrer had. The new song is low on tempo and peppiness. Not only the lyrics but also the hook steps are different from the original song. Also, in the original video, Malaika appears as a western girl whereas Sonam in the new song is coy and desi girl. Speaking of the reprised version of the song, the same is sung by Navraj Hans & Harshdeep Kaur. While the song is composed by Rochak Kohli, the lyrics are penned by Gurpreet Saini. This is not the first time that the famous 90s track was revamped. The song was earlier recreated for Sunny Deol and Kangana Ranuat starrer I Love NY as well.

So they are just wasting Akshay Oberoi!? OmG they would look hot together!!!!

The 90s version is the REMIX of a folksong. This version is closer to the original.

The new version is a mess! All they can do now is remix because people are not making it on the basis of talent in Bollywood anymore, so who's going to write original songs?

What’s with this remix wagon everyone is on. Leave the 90s alone.
