Music composer duo Ajay-Atul have been rocking Marathi Cinema in the recent past with hits like Aga Bai Arrecha,Jatra, Jogwa, Natarang etc and have recently made a transition to Hindi Cinema as well. The year 2011 has seen them churning out Hindi compositions in films like Singham and My Friend Pinto and now in 2012 they have Agneepath and Bol Bachchan to look forward to. Agneepath which is due for release on 26th January, 2012 has been in the news right from the time the project was launched. Adding to all the frenzy now is the item number picturised on Katrina Kaif - “Chikni Chameli” which has finally now been unveiled.
Check out the video of Chikni Chameli -
Now that the song has been brought under public eye, its very clear that the song is nothing but the Hindi version of the Marathi hit number “Kombadi Palali” from the film Jatra incidentally composed by Ajay-Atul themselves. Jatra was a comedy entertainer starring the talented Bharat Jadhav ( in a double role ) and this song was one of the highlights of the film. Those who haven’t seen the song and those who would love to revisit the song can check out the video-
Kombadi Palali sung by Vaishali Samant and Anand Shinde is a a fun song all right with some interesting choreography where Bharat Jadhav surprisingly displays a lot of flexibility. And in Chikni Chameli ( sung by Shreya Ghoshal ) Katrina seems to have outdone herself with her latkas & jhatkas . So what do you think is the better of the 2 numbers? A slightly more rustic and simple Kombadi Palali or a the high octane Chikni Chameli?
