Songs stuck my head. Both from Jhoom Barabar Jhoom (oh Shaad Ali, don't you dare disappoint..after Bunty Babli and Saathiya, don't you dare disappoint)

1. "Jhoom Barabar, Jhoom Barabar, Jhoom Barabar Jhoooooooom, Jhoom Barabar, Jhoom Barabar, Jhoom Barabar Jhoooooooom"

Out damned song, out. No, ok, it's a pretty decent song. Not blockbuster material, but very, very catchy. They (Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy..talking of which, don't you all disappoint either) seem to have combined quite a few nice instruments to make a very catchy number. Somehow it could've sounded better, but I'm just nit-picking. Jhooooooooom. Rabaa.

2. "Ticket to Hollywood, ticket to Hollywood"

Does the guy say "chaniya choli" after that?. And just what is "No no Moo-see-air, no no itna simple nahin.." Moo-see-air? Moo-see-air? Moo what? Duh? Ah..Monsieur. Hilarious. As long as its Preity who's saying that, I'm cool. If Lara can pull that off, bully for her.

My line from the trailer of the movie? Abhishek blurting out to Preity something which goes something like "To tum log ka sex ho gaya?"

The story is here, but I am not going to read it.

Oh, Shaad Ali, don't you dare disappoint.

Heh! Let's see...for some reason I am not very hopeful!

Shantanu - That's the best way to see movies nowadays!

The day the jbj soundtrack released I made a Krrish-like dash for Landmark to pick up a copy (what with all the self-congratulatory 'this is our best work spiel).

So, I get back home. Smug smile escaping from corners of mouth. The CD forewarns me to only listen to the music very very loud. Even better.

And the song begins. Aaaja aaja rabba ishq di khol gutthiyaan. And my smile breaks out non-discreetly smudging my entire face.

However, I hear Os mein gholi mint ki goli and that Stay Away From The Kiss Of Love Song and I don't know what to do with myself or with Mr Ali Saigal.

The rest of the songs are mere rehashes of JBJ, and to rub it in further they have a recycled instrumental piece at the end of the album too..

The only saving grace, was Rahat Fateh Ali Khan's honey on gravel Bol na Halke Halke ( Gulzar being very Gulzaree - aa neend ka sauda karein, ek khwaab dein, ek khwaab lein).

So overall, not very jhoomable to, I lamented. BnB was a far superior album.

My smile has been out turned. She sits quietly gathering dust in my pile of cds. Eagerly awaiting Chak De India.

Ishita - thanks so much for that quick review and hope the movie's better. You know I think you're right...because these are the only 2 songs they're playing on radio..and man! its good to see Gulzar saab cutting loose with all that mint ki goli and everything!

I am loving it. Mainly because of mental image of Mr. B dressing the part.

Your March post about Kishore Kumar's last interview - it was actually in 1987, a few weeks before he died on 13th October.

I saw JBJ.

Duniya par se vishwaas uth gaya hai mera.

Who can you trust when Yash Chopra fails you repeatedly??

The film is outrageously ridiculous. Its the new benchmark for inane. I want to slap Ricky my ass Thukral and break Alvira 'lissan, i m aweeddy engajed' Khan's mouth.

J.A.P. - Thank you for the comment and I will change that..altho I'd picked it up from Neha's post.

Ishita - Poor you. In fact, I'd booked myself to see the movie last weekend and for a variety of reasons I couldn't make it and the tickets were pretty much wasted. But, I will still see it! perhaps later on DVD! Indeed Yash Chopra se koi umeed nahi rakhni chahiye! Thanks again for your comment.

Disappointing movie...let's leave it at that.

Hey, get well soon...

Bombay Addict said...

Thanks Shantanu, I'm feeling much better now. I think I'll watch the movie on DVD..sounds like a safer bet!
