Movie: Rangeela (1995)
Song: Kya Kare Kya Na Kare
Music Director: A. R. Rahman
Singers: Udit Narayan
Actors (in the song): Aamir Khan, Urmila Matondkar
Rangeela was a starting point for a lot of things. Urmila Matondkar’s career, Manish Malhotra’s racy costumes, Rahman’s Hindi debut soundtrack and the start of what is around two decades of animosity between Aamir Khan and popular awards.
Originally the song for today was to be Tanha Tanha Yahan Pe Jeena, the return of Asha Bhosale and went with my songs of the last few days. However, the song happens to feature Jackie Shroff in a speedo, something that cannot be unseen in this life. You’ve been warned. Therefore, in my dilemma, I chose this one! Kya kare kya na kare humesha ki mushkil hain haay!
Aamir Khan is something else in this movie! A lovable galli ka gunda who makes money by selling tickets in black outside movie theatres. This is my favourite scene from the movie.
My favourite lines from this song are:
Wo saamne chamakti hain,
Saans hi atakti hain,
Aur ye zubaan jaati hain phisal.
(She shines in front of me,
I cannot breathe,
And my tongue slips) 😉
