Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz is a Bollywood romantic drama starring Geetanjali Thapa and Zain Khan Durrani, directed by Onir and produced by Yoodlee Films. The film has no music album as such, but since ‘Pehla Nasha’ (Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar) has been used as to carry forth the narrative, the makers have recreated it as a promotional video. The recreation has been done by Anshuman Mukherjee.

The only song released from this movie is a remake of Jatin-Lalit’s super hit romantic classic, ‘Pehla Nasha’ (Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar), and it is aptly named Pehla Nasha Once Again. Anshuman Mukherjee, a newbie, strives hard and succeeds too, in making this Remake more melody-based, than sound-based. What I mean is that, in a time where remakes mostly mean converting an old song into a club number with a groovy EDM hook, this man has based the beautiful melody by Jatin-Lalit, solely on acoustic sounds, something we would never have gotten if somebody else had remade it, especially one name that is right at the tip of my fingers but you can guess who it is. Jubin and Palak do justice to the original composition and singers, adding their own little nuances once in a while. I enjoyed the way the song starts off slow but quickly picks up pace during the “chun liya” part. All in all, this song does what a remake is supposed to — it creates a nostalgic feeling!
