You definitely had time to cool off after a seriously thanda (cold) 2003, so it’s time to rekindle the fire. And what a job Lara Dutta pulled off in Aisa Jadoo! Not only was this a rocking song with great picturization, but it marked the first real hit item number for Sunidhi Chauhan who has gone on to give us an unbelievable amount of foot-tapping tracks since then. And no, it’s not over yet. 2004 also introduced us to the hot, hip and sexy series of Dhoom and brought us the anthem of the year—Dhoom Machale. More so than Esha Deol, it was the song itself that was too tempting to resist. It definitely takes the crown for 2004. Abhishek Bachchan revolutionized item numbers with One Love in the film Rakht. Though the song was decent, it was the concept of an ‘item boy’ that really raised eyebrows.
