Is Mahie Gill's Bindu act better than Kareena Kapoor's Helen one in Don

The latest song from Zanjeer’s remake has created quite a stir in our minds. We’ve been wondering how well can Ram Charan, Priyanka and Mahie fit into the shoes of actors like Big B, Jaya Bachchan and Bindu

Mahiee Gill reprises Bindu’s role as Mona Darling in the remake of Zanjeer. In the original film, Bindu was seen shaking a leg in a yellow outfit with high-cut slits, flaunting her legs in the song Dil jalon ka dil jala kar. In Kaatilana from the upcoming Zanjeer, Mahie is seen sporting a glitzy outfit with the high-cut slit even higher. Both the songs are club numbers and have catchy tunes.

What more, Mahiee’s dance is choreographed with the same effect of sensuousness as Bindu’s. However, the kinda energy with which Bindu dances is not visible in Mahie’s number. Mahie has seductive eyes but that’s about it. Compared to Bindu, her seductive act is just not convincing… Yes, Mahiee takes our breath away with her look in the song but she can’t be Bindu, right?

In the past, Kareena Kapoor too had tried doing a Helen in the song Yeh mera dil from Don and critics had a field day. While Helen’s act was clearly that of seduction, Bebo’s act came out more like desperation. Kareena’s Yeh Mera Dil number was disastrous, right from the outfit to the dance moves, which were nowhere close to captivating or seductive. At least we can say, Mahie is way better that Kareena was in reprising the role played by a senior actor! Mahie’s hot curves, enticing eyes and attractive dance moves are worth praising… but only if we don’t draw comparison with the Mona Darling from the original Zanjeer!

While we have no doubt that Kareena and Mahie are comfortable in their own shoes, we cannot say the same when they’ve tried reprising the roles played by Helen and Bindu… The yesteryears’ actors’ have created their own place in our hearts with their performances which is why it’s difficult to accept other actors trying to re-do their acts… Don’t you agree? With numerous films being remade, do you think the present day actors can actually replace the yesteryears’ actors’ characters set in our mind?

    Kareena was good in her song….. the ye mera dil number was updated and the beats were faster and a sensual song usually requires beats to be slower, so don’t blame kareena for that and she didn’t choreograph the song so… kareena did as she was asked to do and she emoted really well in the song, switching from anger to seduction in quick succession. The helen version was excellent but kareena’s version was close to excellent, it did the job in my opinion.

      I agree with you……Kareena’s version was excellent….she never dissapoints me in anything she does

    I strongly disagree, Kareena was fabulous in Yeh Mera Dil. Her expressions were bang on. Personally, I saw seduction in her performance rather than desperation, but even if there was desperation it still suits her character as of course she was very desperate to distract Don long enough to trap him. As for the choreography, it was meant to look natural as in something that someone could come up with on the spot. And I think it did the job beautifully :)

    I agree with W. Kareena’s version was excellent and Kareena never disappoints me. Even if a movie or song don’t do too well……this girl still delivers the goods and how….better than the rest!

    Kareena was not very good in Yeh Mera Dil, She was overweight, and she still had not come into her own. She is much better now.

  • Yash

    Mahiee gill is much better unlike kareena kapoor’s weird tummy in don … She was fat !

  • steffiix rijjiix

    Kareena is the best and she looked fabulous in the ye mera dil #………the way she tried 2 seduce Don shows bravery since she is angry at him 4 killing her husband……
    she hides her feelings well and that is great..anyway, she is the very best of all…. everything she did or does is perfect than the other actresses, except her sister, Karishma……….she can never disappoint me in everything she did….luv u Bebo!!!!!!!!!!

    Can the writer please commit suicide as he has no idea or notion about films and sophistication. Kareenas act was desperation? Well let me tell you; you are utterly desperate to ride on her success by saying mean stuff about her.
