Just over 50 years ago, a song featuring Shammi Kapoor made waves. It was funky, it was fun, it was hatke. And it co-starred a pretty and sexy young thing called Mumtaz. The film was Brahmachari and the song, Aaj kal tere mere pyaar ke charche hain zabaan par. Remember this one?
Now a new version of the song has been released by the band Sanam and it is truly worth a look/listen. It’s rare that we are not cynical or snarky about recreated music, but Sanam’s music video is charming, great fun and very musical, without killing the original track or even bending it excruciatingly in any manner.
Listen to and watch Aaj kal tere mere….from Sanam, featuring Sanah Moidutty. The number has Sanam Puri - vocals, Samar Puri - guitars, Venky S - bass and Keshav Dhanraj - drums.
Nice, na? This one is all fun, all energy and all totally-not-serious. The group clowns around on an enormous chess set on the lawn, with Sanah joining in the high jinks. The best part – they can sing! Using mobile phone cameras and a drone (?), the video is shot in a way that so suits the song and the group’s rendition of it, making us very happy fans and watchers.
