Badrinath Ki Dulhania: Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt's 'Tamma Tamma' is just as fun


Sticking to the trend of hits from the 90s, Varun and Alia add their infectious energy to this already high tempo number from Badrinath Ki Dulhania.

There is something about the 90s for the composers of today. The latest song to make its way into a film is 'Tamma Tamma Loge' from the Sanjay Dutt-Madhuri Dixit starrer Thanedaar. The second and most anticipated song from this Varun Dhawan-Alia Bhatt starrer is almost as good as its foot-tapping and groovy predecessor, which was a straight life from Tama by Mory Kante, which came out in 1988. 

The song has stuck to the original 'Tama Tama Loge' vibe of the 90s, right down to Ameen Sayani's voiceover introducing the track in a flashy disco. The high tempo beats add to the existing flavour of the song, and take it up another notch. Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt's infectious energy adds to the entire charm of the song. 

Composed by Tanishk Bagchi, with the voices of Bappi Lahiri and Anuradha Paudwal from the original, the song will get fans up and moving. Badshah's rap brings in an upgraded touch to the song, giving it some edge. 

Both Bhatt and Dhawan have been promoting the song for some time on social media. A recent video of the two practising their moves, only to have the original - Madhuri Dixit - stes in and correct them went viral on the internet. While Madhuri was teaching the duo the right moves, Sanjay Dutt came out in support of the song. 

Here's the original for you: 

For once, this remix looks like it will match up to the reputation of the original. Badrinath Ki Dulhania is directed by Shashank Khaitan and is set for a theatrical release on 10 March.
