The trend of using old iconic Hindi songs in new films and giving them a modern twist refuses to die down. The recent trailer of Vishal Pandya’s Wajah Tum Ho showed that the film has used not one but three such old songs: ‘Aise Na Mujhe Tum Dekho,’ ‘Mahive’ and 'Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas'.

Now, the trend is being taken forward Nishikant Kamat in Force 2. The makers have released a song from the film based on Sridevi and Anil Kapoor’s iconic ‘Kaate Nahin Katte’ from Mr India (1987). But unlike the original version, this one only has a female track, which is performed by the lead actress, Sonakshi Sinha.

The song starts with the lyrics ‘O Janiya’ and displays absolutely no similarity with the Mr India song. It appears like an ordinary club number. But all of a sudden, ‘Kaate Nahin Katte’ is introduced, giving it an unexpected twist. However, the song changes tracks without hampering the flow. In fact, composer Gourov Roshin has done it smartly. Singer Neha Kakkar, too, has added the right flavour and hasn’t tried to copy the original singer. 

This song is Sinha's most sizzling avatar till date. But we wish the choreographer had been more creative. To see the actress giving the same steps a number of times doesn’t quite impress. The song also features the lead actor, John Abraham, in flashes. 

Also starring Tahir Raj Bhasin (of Mardaani fame), Force 2 will release on 18 November.
