    A classic insult: Eight times Bollywood butchered popular songs through remixes

    Ever since the release of Masakali 2.0, featuring Siddharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria, the badly remixed and reshot version of a beautiful composition by AR Rahman, has been at the receiving end of scathing criticism. The remixed version, produced by T-Series, has been recreated by Tanishk Bagchi and sung by Tulsi Kumar and Sachet Tandon. Original collaborators of the song, AR Rahman, singer Mohit Chauhan and lyricist Prasoon Joshi have expressed their displeasure over the song being recreated for commercial purposes.While Rahman tweeted about the hours of passionate work put into making the original piece, Joshi accused the makers of tampering with the soul of the song. Even Siddhart Malhotra agreed that the criticism of Masakali 2.0 was ‘completely valid.’Even government agencies could not resist trolling the new remixed version. While the Jaipur Police even created a meme out of it, threatening violators of the lockdown of being quarantined with Masakali 2.0 playing on a loop, Delhi Metro revealed its bias towards the original as they had featured in it.Despite the plethora of talent that the Bollywood industry has, many composers, often at the insistence of producers for commercial reasons, fall back on the age-old remix formula. Most of the remakes have been sleazy, cringe-worthy ones, which are poor imitations of the original songs. We take a look at some songs which should never have been remade.

    10 biggest blockbusters of the decade (2010-19)

    The biggest challenge while making a list of the biggest blockbusters of the decade is to decide what the determining factor should be. As the period spans ten years, one cannot simply pick the ten highest grossers and proclaim them as the biggest blockbusters because the prices of tickets shoot up every year, especially for marquee, big-budget releases.Hence, the nett collections of -- for example -- a ‘Race 3’ released in 2018 are more than a ‘Dabangg’, which hit the screens in 2010, though the latter is a much bigger blockbuster. Hence, the ideal yardstick to measure the magnitude of Box-Office success of films is the number of footfalls. Footfalls are nothing but the number of tickets sold by cinema halls across India. So, a ‘Dabangg’ has more footfalls than a ‘Race 3’ and would have done much more business than the latter if released in 2018 because of increased ticket rates over the years.Here are the 10 blockbusters which released between 2010-2019 and struck gold at the turnstiles.Notes:1) ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’ is excluded as it was a Telugu movie dubbed in Hindi. This list takes into account only Bollywood films.2) Footfalls are number of tickets sold within India.
