Last evening, the team of the upcoming Kannada film Spooky College released a song. A dance number featuring Reeshma Nanaiah, the song is a remixed version of the classic Mellusire Savigana from Veera Kesari, which featured the late matinee idol Dr Rajkumar and Leelavathi. The new version has been put together by Ajaneesh Loknath and has got a split verdict from netizens.
Reeshma’s dance moves are a unanimous hit among fans, with some saying that she is the highlight of the song. Others said that the remixed version is amazing, while a third section felt that it was no match for the original and that the remix culture should not be encouraged. Here’s a look at what audiences are saying about the song.
“No 1 can touch the Original "Mellisure. This version is not even close 2 the original song. After listen 2 this , I have started appreciating the original even more....Only best part of the song is Reeshma,” said a user with the handle, The Name is RK.
“Expected more from Ajaneesh. It is not bad, but original is a gem,” wrote Karthik Srivatsa. Calling it a catchy number, Lakshmi Karthik felt that the song was a superb way to pay tribute to Dr Rajkumar.
“Killer stuff from Reeshma, bad remix, worst production values,” is what Shivaraj Kumar thought of the song, while Harisha MR wondered how a melody song became an item number.
Meanwhile, a few took the opportunity to throw shade at Ajaneesh, who has been caught in a plagiarism row with Thaikkudam Bridge, over the song Varaha Roopam. “Again Ajaneesh did the same, only this time he took permission from original song owners,” wrote a user.
Spooky College, which has Kushee Ravi, Vivek Simha and Prithvi Rashtrakuta in the lead, is a horror thriller that is coming to theatres on November 25.
