The one that further adds to the mass appeal is Mamta Sharma sung item number ‘Anarkali Disco Chali’. While comparisons with the likes of ‘Munni’ and ‘Sheila’ are unavoidable, especially since Malaika is a common factor between Anarkali and Munni, this one does manage to hold on its own.
In fact on closer hearing one can sense that Sajid-Wajid are clearly inspired by Lakshmikant-Pyaarelal style of composition here. No wonder, in a couple of hearing you do get an impression that this one may well have its roots in ‘Paalki Mein Hoke Sawaar Chali Re’ [Khalnayak].
Of course there is a difference in the very setting of the song since Madhuri Dixit’s version was on the cute-n-lovey-dovey side whereas Malaika brings in a naughty streak to the proceedings. Still, this out and out Indian number again manages to be a winner due to its instant coffee appeal. The very fact that it is repeated twice in a regular ‘remix’ and a ‘hyper mix’ version (with Sukhwinder Singh as a add-on vocalist in all three versions) further ensures that as a listener, you would listen to this one more than any other song.
