So today, being a day of many adventures and the day after my effort-taking, back-breaking post went up, I am only posting the videos for today! A proper post will follow in approximately two hours! Hope you enjoy.. 🙂
A good measure of your age would be how you remember Bindu- Shabnam (pyaar se log mujhe Shabbo kehte hain) from Kati Patang, as Mona Darling from Zanjeer, Chitra from Abhimaan, the evil mother -in-law/ambitious mother in countless movies from the 80s/90s or as Mrs. Kakkad from Main Hoon Na.
The original movie is Anhonee, a murder-thriller and this song is the “item number” where Sanjiv Kumar looking for the killer wants to question Rita (Bindu.) Of course she has to be dancing and inebriated, she’s Bindu! That’s why she was taken on.
There is no better song that expresses the dichotomy of Indian society on alcohol consumption with regards to genders than this song. The lyrics are straight up and simple, everybody drinks, if I do, it’s an issue.
The second video is the reworked version by Amit Trivedi – my current favourite music director – from the movie Queen. Not only has he worked up the pace of the song, the additions gel perfectly with Kangana’s situation.
I am picking no lines today, sorry!
