Where have we heard the ‘Kala chashma’ song from ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ before?

It’s a new version of Amar Arshi’s 2000s hit.

After days of hype, the video for Kala chashma, a song from Nitya Mehra’s directorial debut Baar Baar Dekho, is out. The movie stars Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif, and its hopeful title does not refer to its box office chances, but to the romance between the lead pair that spans three decades. The film will be released on September 9.

Kaala chashma is being touted as an earworm on the lines of Kar gayi chull from Kapoor & Sons. If the track sounds exceedingly familiar, that’s because it’s none other than a remastered version of Amar Arshi’s Bhangra pop hit Tenu kala chashma jajta ve (Black eyeshades suit you), which was composed by Kam Dhillon and released in 2005. To this hip-swinging and mellowish number, Badshah has added more insistent beats, a rap interlude and vocals by Neha Kakkar. The original tune worked just fine; Kaif’s look evokes memories of Chikni Chameli from Agneepath; the choreography gives off a whiff of déjà vu. Or perhaps that’s intentional, given the movie’s time travel theme?

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

With the distinctive placement of the rear cameras, this phone makes a great subject for a photographic series.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
