Ek Ajnabee Haseena Se
Soft, soothing music aka the 60s, 70s Hindi melodies is something I love to listen on and on and on. The other day I heard Ek Ajnabee Haseena se a timeless melody from the 1974 movie Ajnabee).
This post is not about that. I wanted to watch the video and searched on my phone for “Ek Ajnabee Haseena Se”, I was pretty surprised to see that the first result was not the original song but a musical video remake. I was a tad disappointed to start with and was furious on knowing that it was actually an advertisement for Doublemint. However, something stopped me from closing the video, it felt vaguely familiar. When I played it I was beeming with a smile and slipped into nostalgia.
I am not a fan of remakes, rarely have I seen a remake which can match the original, leave alone upping the game. But here is one, which not only holds a candle to the original but also slightly surpasses it, at least for its massively cheesily cute video.
Go watch it here and get the past rolling…
