Bollywood has been churning out one remix after another and most of them haven’t been that impressive, tbh. Maybe because I’m so used to listening to the old ones that the reprise versions do not touch that note with me. So when I heard that they were recreating Lata Mangeshkar’s Lag Jaa Gale from Woh Kaun Thi? I was a little scared. Why, you ask? I may be a millennial but I love classics. A lot of it is also because my dad got me used to listening to it while I was little and this song has stayed with me ever since. Today, I finally got around to hearing the reprise version and I’m glad that this one is actually good.
While Jonita Gandhi renders the soulful song, her voice matches the scale to the T. The best part about this version from Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 is that the mood of the song matches the original one.
Thank God for this one!
