So I have yet to finish Fanaa…

…and please don’t tell me how it ends. It’s at times like this that I’m grateful for my former Bollywood ignorance.

I think this may be the first Aamir film I will review for the blog, but we’ll see what Sarah thinks.

Anyway!

Des Rangila!

Kandhon Se Milte Hain Kandhe

Song Sunday – Swades

Today you get a double-feature! These songs are from Swades, which I will review this week. It’s a powerful movie and a little different from your standard Bollywood fare. We already featured Yun Hi Chala Chal, but these two are, again, different. Enjoy!

If you liked them, you can buy the mp3s from Amazon.

If you’ve read the About Us page, you’re pretty much up to speed– but here’s a little more detail on the blog:

On average, we’ll post two movie reviews a week. They’re not all going to be really detailed, but they will hopefully help you in determining whether a movie is worth watching, beyond my criteria of “Does it have Shahrukh Khan? Yes? I’m game,”.

We’ll also share links and videos (lots of videos) we think you’ll enjoy. These will be more frequent than the movie reviews, because it’s a lot easier to embed a video than to try to explain why John Abraham really is a good actor…

Then, whenever we jolly well feel like it, there will be short posts about confusing Bollywood/Indian/Hindi things we’ve figured out. Like who Sallu, Piggy Chops, and Bebo are. And why Sikhs wear turbans.

And whatever else we feel like posting, of course.

So, for today, here’s a very favorite song/video; Mahi Ve:

It’s from the movie Kal Ho Naa Ho (KHNH), and features Shah Rukh Khan (0:03), Saif Ali Khan (0:16), Preity Zinta (0:16), and Jaya Bachchan (3:39). Making guest appearances in this song are Rani Mukerji (3:01) and my beloved Kajol (4:39).

The song is sung by Udit Narayan, Sonu Nigam, Sadhana Sargam, Shankar Mahadevan, and Sujata Bhattacharya (Madhushree). If I knew who sang what, I would tell you… but for now, you’ll have to believe I’ll update this when I know.

This scene in the movie is the engagement ceremony of Saif and Preity’s characters.

And it’s my favorite.

If you enjoyed it (of course you did) you might like to buy the mp3 from Amazon… it’s my favorite thing to listen to while doing dishes.
