Bollywood has been following the trend of reprising the old with some flavour of today. While few have been snubbed away, many have gained enough attention to encourage the rest. ‘OK Jaanu’ an upcoming romantic flick starring the ‘Aashiqui 2’ couple is the latest to follow this trend. With India’s music maestro himself helming the project as the music director, one did expect ‘OK Jaanus’ music to create some magic. Now, the first song of the movie is out and Twitter Is Unnecessarily Losing Its Shit Over The New ‘Humma Humma’ Song In OK Jaanu
Twitter Is ‘Unnecessarily’ Losing Its Shit Over The New ‘Humma Humma’ Song In OK Jaanu
Not many seem to appreciate the foot tapping number which will anyway go on to be a chartbuster and even make it to every club there is in the country. With Badshah combining power with A.R.Rahman, ‘Humma Humma’ song features the sizzling chemistry between Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor. The video is undeniably sensual and at the same time, the music does work its magic and portrays an obsession for the original. As no expert in music, I definitely agree to this obsession but the nostalgia wankers need to stop taking the song personally.
Listen to the ‘Humma Humma’ song here :
So what exactly has irked Twitteratis enough to lose their mind over the song (twitteratis lose their mind over any damn thing)? Of course the reason is the unnecessary existence of Badshah’s irritating rap (which we personally did not mind though). Here is what Twitterati had to say.
Bollywood. Please stop boiling blood.

First Of All Ms. ‘The Kaanta Laga Remix Was Awe… wait for it….. Some’. Feel sorry for your Dad though.
I am feeling whatever my dad went through when he heard the Kaanta Laga remix. Fuck you Badshah!

How about drowning?
Heard the new Humma song and then booked a ticket to Varanasi for taking a dip in the Ganges and wash away this ghastly sin.

That’s some form of lamenting here….
This #TheHummaSong sounds like it was composed on a Nokia 5110.
A phone made in 1998.
Where the original Humma song should have stayed!

Is he aware of who the composer for the original was?
Original remains original forever even @arrahman can't beat it.

We (Indians) are the biggest examples of tolerance. After standing in long queues post demonetisation, it is #HummaHumma we are tolerating..

Also, can we please stop putting Badshah into everything. He is a rapper, not Garam masala, bloody!
