There are very few songs that work when adapted from their originals to fit a (bollywood) film’s soundtrack. Awari is one such song.
The original was composed by a band called Soch for the show Nescafe Basement. And while I admit I heard the song for the first time only when it featured on the Ek Villian soundtrack, I did end up going back to listen to the original convinced that it would be better, because the originals usually are.
But… not this time 🙂 I really can’t make up my mind.
Here is the original one, with only male vocals:
My favourite part – 5.08 – 5.45… absolute raungte bit.
And then there’s the film version, with both male and female vocals:
Seee, told you! Neither one is better than the other. 🙂
With music like this to keep me company, I’m loving this Monday.
