'Gerua' From 'Dilwale' Attempts To Recreate 'Suraj Hua Maddham' Magic

The first song from Rohit Shetty's upcoming entertainer Dilwale, 'Gerua', was launched at a star-studded launch event held at Mumbai's iconic Maratha Mandir theatre on Wednesday evening.

The film's cast, including its lead pair Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, were present at the event. Dilwale marks the return of the SRK-Kajol jodi, which was immortalised 20 years ago in Aditya Chopra's Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge. Chopra's film, the longest-running Hindi movie of all time, is still playing at Maratha Mandir.

'Gerua', which has been shot in Iceland, features extensive visual effects and is rumoured to be the most expensive Hindi song ever, according to Hindustan Times.

Since Wednesday evening, fans have noted the similarities between 'Gerua' and 'Suraj Hua Maddham' from Karan Johar's Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham... (2001).

Many have loved it.

This dude really loved it.

However, there seemed to be quite a few who didn't quite feel the same way.

Some were turned off by the somewhat tacky special effects in the song (which, as comedian Sapan Verma put it, looks like "SRK and Kajol posing in front of Windows 98 wallpapers").

To sum it all up...

We're sorta inclined to agree. :(
