The recently released track 'Tamma Tamma Again' from the much talked about upcoming romantic comedy 'Badrinath Ki Dulhania', which has the lead actors, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan grooving to the beats, has caused a frenzy among the fans for all the right reasons.
But not many people know that the track, a remake of the song of the same name from the Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt starrer 'Thanedaar', actually has its roots in the 1988's popular track by Mory Kanté, titled as, no prizes for guessing, 'Tama'. Yes, he's the man who gave birth to those foot tapping beats.
Mory Kante happens to be a Guinean vocalist and player of the kora harp. He is best known internationally for his 1987 hit song 'Ye ke ye ke', which reached number-one in Belgium, Finland, the Netherlands, and Spain.
This doesn't come as much of a surprise as Bollywood music composers have had a history of getting 'inspired' from international tracks once in a while. Does the name Anu Mallik ring a bell?
An interesting thing to note is there another popular Bollywood number which was 'inspired' by Mory's single. The song happens to be none other than Amitabh Bachchan's 'Jumma Chumma De De' from 'Hum', which, just like Tamma Tamma Loge, became an instant hit upon its release. We can safely conclude that we owe a lot to Mory for these chartbusters. This write-up is Follo-in's tribute to the man.
Coming back to Varun Dhawan-Alia Bhatt's song, we must add that it’s a very high on energy fun-filled track for which the composers retained the voices of 'original' singers, Bappi Lahiri and Anuradha Paudwal. The Bollywood touch is unmistakable in both the 'inspired' versions and we are not complaining. Badrinath Ki Dulhania, a sequel to Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, is up for a March 10 release. This is Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt's third film together, after Student Of The Year and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania.
