“Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh” Revives the Classic RD Burman Number
The first song of Sonam-Anil Kapoor-Rajkummar Rao-starrer Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is out and it’s the title track rendition of the RD Burman classic from 1942: A Love Story.
Penned by Gurpreet Saini, composed by Rochak Kohli and sung by Darshan Raval and Rochak Kohli, the title track actually takes off from the lovely original to create a melodious, moving number. Shot around Sonam and Rajkummar’s growing friendship, “Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga” tells the tale of the heart discovering someone special.
This rendition is a big relief, going by how most remixes of evergreen numbers turn out to be.
And if you don’t remember the original number, refresh your memory:
Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar and will be releasing on 1 February. It brings together Anil with daughter Sonam on screen for the first time, and also stars Juhi Chawla.
