No particular reason for this post, the song was just going through my head. And I thought we should determine, once and for all, which is the best version. FYI, “Bumbro” is a Kashmiri folk song independent of the movie versions, it’s just two separate Kashmir-set films decided to remix it for their movies.
What I think of as the “original” version. Hrithik, Preity, clever set up of an old friend walking into her song set and leaping into the back-up dancing. Hrithik is hot and happy and dancing, Preity is cute, it’s got big glittery production values and a clever little byplay as Preity and Hrithik recognize each other.
And then the new version! No fancy costume, no fancy set, no fancy dancing, but a new remix to the song, and super super cute kids! And a super cute dude.
Having just rewatched both of them, I think I am going with…..Hrithik-Preity!!!! The flirting is just too irrisistable.
