Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3’s turn to destroy the evergreen number Lag Ja Gale.
The track, from the upcoming Sanjay Dutt and Jimmy Sheirgill starrer, has been sung by Jonita Gandhi. The song has been recreated by Rana Mazumder, who has done a half-baked job. If you are out of original ideas and are hell-bent on revamping an old number, do it with respect and grace. Give the classic its dignity, its rightful place by adding something of value to the source material whilst retaining the magic of the old.
However, it looks like the aforementioned rule is too much to ask of our musicians. The nearly four-minute song blares and bleeds, unlike its original counterpart. The background score of the track is much too loud, overshadowing the lovely lyrics of the song. The flute has been added to the whole mix as an afterthought. The music of the instrument stands out, and not in a good way.
