‘Aankh Marey’ from ‘Simmba’ got potential to be flavour of this party season
There’s no denying that one of the highlights of Arshad Warsi’s debut movie, Tere Mere Sapne, was the music album. Especially the rowdy song ‘Aankh Maare.’ In the latest Bollywood trend of remixing the 90s songs, it found a new home in Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan‘s film Simmba. Having worked with Arshad Warsi in so many movies, it’s only fair that director Rohit Shetty brings back the newer version of the song for the younger audience.
Simmba‘s first song, titled ‘Aankh Marey,’ was unveiled on Thursday. Featuring the vocal talents of Mika Singh, Neha Kakkar, and Kumar Sanu (who sang the original as well), the song is re-created and programmed by Tanishk Bagchi while Shabbir Ahmed has written the lyrics.
Beats of the song will have the 90s kids and the new funk lovers moving on the dance floor. It definitely has the potential of being the flavour of the sangeet ceremonies this wedding season.
The video has Sara Ali Khan match Ranveer Singh pound for pound when it comes to the choreography of the song. It ticks all the boxes on the list of ‘Rohit Shetty song tropes.’ There are neon sets, fluorescent lighting, bikers doing wheelies, firang extras, and retro atmosphere. The 3.22-minutes-long song is filled with the cameos. We begin with the producer of the movie Karan Johar taking the jibe at remix trend. But the best part is the Golmaal gang joining Ranveer and Sara Ali Khan for the climax of the track. Shreyas Talpade, Tusshar Kapoor, Kunal Kemmu do the ‘Golmaal’ step with the lead pair only to be joined by Arshad Warsi and do the ‘Aankh Marey’ step with everyone.
The quartet drops a major hint for the possibility of the fifth Golmaal movie coming our way.
