Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast remade for Machine (video)

'Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast', the hit song from 1994 film Mohra starring Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tandon, is the latest victim of Bollywood's inability to leave well alone. 

After meddling with songs like Hamma Hamma and Saara Zamana, Bollywood offers up Cheez Badi from upcoming film Machine. 
Kavita Krishnamurthy's vocals have been replaced by Neha Kakkar's in the recreation by composers Komail-Shivaan. 
The song (and film) stars debutant Mustafa and actress Kiara Advani, gyrating snakily in red. Despite Akshay's bandanna, sunglasses and waistcoat in the original having been dispensed with in favour of something more 2017, we can't say we're impressed. 
Version 2.0 has none of the cheez-y charm of what passed for cool in the Nineties.
Check out the original version as well.
