Humma Humma is a super hit song composed by AR Rahman for the movie ‘Bombay'(1995) which was directed by Mani Ratnam. The same song was remixed for a Bollywood film ‘OK Jaanu’ starring Siddharth Roy Kapur, Shraddha Kapoor.
‘OK Jaanu’ is the Hindi remake of Mani Ratnam directorial ‘OK Bangaram’. Hindi remake was directed by Mani sir assistant Shaad Ali. Even though Telugu Tamil versions were successful at the box office, Hindi remake turned out to be a big disaster. Rahman’s music received good appreciation from the Hindi audience but the film was unable to impress them. Filmmakers have uploaded Humma Humma remix video in the YouTube at the time of release two years ago. This remix song has created sensation in the YouTube with 200 million views(20 crore).. and the view are still counting.
Even though chartbuster songs register millions of views in the YouTube, 200 million views is a huge number. Many say that majority of the credit goes to Geo..and the high dose of romance in the song added fuel to the fire !
