(This song is on this list for the sheer ridiculousness of it. Yes, I am in that mood! 😀 😀 😀 )
Go over the credits again. Yes, Gulzar and Anu Malik. Yes. Yes. I had a shock the first time I saw that as well. But honestly, listen to the song, and tell me if the following is not something that ran through your mind.
The antara and the mukhda are written by two different people. There is no way those that really promising opening lines into “Mom maani nahi, dad naaraaz tha, meri barbadiyon ka wo aaghaz tha, ishq ka ek hi ek andaaz tha“. Really. What were you thinking o you God of words!
Moving on, at 8.34 this song is really long, I won’t blame you if you feel it’s the entire movie in there. Because it really is. Part of being a Salman fan is watching movies like these. And Main Aur Mrs. Khanna. Though I understand that Shirish Kunder had noble ideas and planned to turn this into a musical-type of thing (Farah Khan almost succeeds), you really cannot take this love story seriously.
If I remember correctly, this movie had the costliest trailer ever, I have no clue why. If you’re planning to watch this movie: let me warn you, Anupam Kher is a midgety-dwarf. And a bad one at that. I have no clue what this movie aimed to do. Also spoiler alert, there is is Preity Zinta look alike called Preity Zintakova.
The biggest surprise though is Akshay Kumar. He did this movie and then went on to do Joker with Shirish Kunder. What were you think of boss?! Was one movie not good enough for you?!
