When I first heard that the iconic song Masakali was getting a remix, it sent a chill down my spine. Who the actors were that would be appearing in this song was none of my concern. 

However, Masakali having been a childhood favourite of mine, and an actually well made song from Bollywood, I was just waiting on how the Indian film industry would ruin it. 

And… unfortunately they did not disappoint… or they did (in a weird sense) when they dropped this:

The Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria single, Masakali 2.0 came out today on 8th April 2020. It is a recreation of A.R. Rahman’s hit song ‘Masakali’ from the 2009 film Delhi-6.

The original song was sung by Mohit Chauhan with lyrics by Prasoon Joshi and is truly a musical masterpiece. It is so simple, no heavy or very fancy instruments, just one singer singing the whole song. 

This new 2.0 version though has been sung by Tulsi Kumar and Sachet Tandon, with music by Tanishk Bagchi. It shows Malhotra and Sutaria enjoying a romantic time, while enclosed in a luxurious hotel room.

However, the reaction it has gotten from people has not been the best.

Someone on social media actually commented that, “HOW CAN YOU DESTROY A LYRICAL MASTERPIECE AND A CINEMATOGRAPHICAL TREAT TO THE EYES JUST LIKE THAT? PURANE GAANO KI HADDIYA TODNA BAND KARO YAAR.” 

Another user wrote that, “Another song ruined just like our future. Agreed?”

One user lamented how the remake has taken a song that was originally about a woman’s free spirit and carefree life, and turned it into a typical romantic Bollywood remake that no one even asked for.

A Twitter user tweeted that:

These were some of the best burns and memes that came out of this whole atrocity:

Twitter users really did not hold back from really roasting the song. And with good reason indeed. They also somehow managed to trend ‘Mohit Chauhan’ while talking about the debacle that this song is.
