What is the Meaning of This?

17 Oct

A 1980s C-movie just threw up all over my screen. Things I found in the wreckage include:

1. Giant dancing boobs. (Multiple interpretations apply.)

2. The self esteem of unknown skinny guy forced to dance in his chaddis next to a muscle-bound Khan brother.

3. The self esteem of a muscle-bound Khan brother forced to dance in his chaddis next to an unknown skinny guy.

4. The definition of “cute”.

5. The remains of Amitabh Bachchan’s outfit from the Easter party scene in Amar Akbar Anthony – minus a giant helping of class.

6. The careers of Sunny Deol and Salman Khan.

Somewhere in Ooty, Mithun Chakraborty is slapping his thigh and giggling to himself.

    Ewwwwwww! What movie is this? And why is the song in Bhojpuri? And why is Riya Sen so skanky? And why can’t Suchitra and Raima knock some sense into her? And why isn’t Sohail unemployed? Just… ewwwww :-X The teensy glimpse I saw at the end suggests ‘Heroes’ that Preity-Sallu movie. Is it that?!!!!!

    What inhumane crap is this that you’ve foisted on us poor unsuspecting folk, Ams? I come here, bleary as hell after an all nighter with a colicky baby (yeah I gave her ur hug – didnt help the bawling!) and I see this. I think I prefer sleepless nights to that vid!

    Thank god today you posted this on a Saturday.
    Watching this on a weekday would have left me dancing to the tunes of recession gods.

    Good find in the wreckage. 🙂

    Is that Riya Sen? Why are her looks making me so confused? And finally, when is the movie coming out? 😀

    Sunny Deol’s career was still alive? 😛

    Why a lot of our filmmakers still think songs such as this add value is beyond me. Especially the lyrics here, ewww is right. Something similar is why I didn’t like Namastey London much last year. All that work, ek pal mein gone!

    I think Heroes will be a decent movie, and in some respects, I am looking forward to it (for Salman and Preity). And Mithun should be interesting in this. Dino Morea’s playing his son.

    Cheers!

    Pitu – YES! Can you believe it? How the mighty have fallen, non?

    DG – BWAHAHAAH!!! Poor ol’ DG. Next up is a review of The Himesh’s next chartbuster. Enjoy! Oh, and if the baby keeps throwing tantrums, threaten her with that video – she’ll soon know whats best for her!

    Memsaab – hee hee!

    Nikhil – hey, anything I can do to help get your mind off the stuff! No way left but up, right? 🙂

    Amey – save it for Youtube, I’m sure it’ll be a HUGE hit on the interwebs 😀

    TBF – Touche!!! I don’t know who made this movie but I have a feeling it’s meant for what they like to call “the interior” and apparently in the interior what they want is terrible gay soft porn 😀

    Unknown skinny guy is the same kid who was in Taarzan the wonder car (or whatever spelling variation it had) with Ayesha Takia. If I’m not wrong his name is Vishal Malhotra… might be wrong of course. And seriously, what is wrong with Riya Sen?

     
  9. Amey

    The skinny guy is one Vatsal Seth, the “hero” of Taarzan as DDD said. If you know your obscure hindi serials, he was the hero of “Just Mohabbat” on Sony.

    And re: your response to DG, are you (or related to) a child psychiatrist?

    @ Amey: Thank you… I knew his name had a V and an S in it 😀 😛 Are you looking for a child psychiatrist? 😀 I TOLD you not to copy CID uncle’s dressing, did I not? 😛

    Amrita,

    from B4U, all I can see is that Priety got a nice wardrobe! Lovely salwars in this movie (rather overbright, but hey, they’re punjabi – the salwars *have* to be in psychedelic colors! :-))

    @DDD: I was commenting on Amrita’s parenting advice to DG.

    As for Dr. Salunkhe’s wardrobe, I got suspicious when all you female commenters started enthusiastically pushing me to wear those, and I have yet to go anywhere near any of those even with a flaming torch.

    Amey: Haan I know why you asked… couldn’t pass up the chance to pull your leg though 😉

    And what a pity you caught on so soon… we thought we’d managed to convince you to try his wardrobe 😀

    DDD – oh, right, the quasi-soft porn flick! I completely blanked on that. He wasn’t half bad in that movie… but then I just watched Karzzz so my judgment is really shaky.

    Amey – damn, you remember his name? 😀 I concede the title of Trivia King to you! I vaguely remember Just Mohabbat… wasnt it a bit like The Wonder Years with this kid whose parents don’t have time for him and a hot sister or something? His mom was that lady who played the other woman in that Neena Gupta serial. … and er, no, just a boat load of mother and two crazy psychiatrists of the adult variety.

    M – I don’t know, she looks like a down rent Zaara. Something happened to Preity over the past year, it’s like all life got sucked out of her.

    it’s like all life got sucked out of her

    – she’s been binging on Botox :-p and her hard partying ways are finally catching up with her (have info on those from a very reliable source in the filmi world!)

    I accept the throne, and appoint Wikipedia and Google as my advisors 😉

    BTW, we are not talking about the (aptly-called) Kimi Kat(kasar)kar starrer, but the more recent Ayesha Takia and purple car starrer.

    @DDD: You came a girl or two commenter away from convincing me to try it on. I am sure you all are going to try harder next time around.

    That sparkly bra top thing is so aggressive and distracting. But anything that gives Mithun a well-deserved chuckle can’t be all bad. Or can it?

    Pitu,

    Yeah you can tell Priety has been overdoing the botox or collagen or whatever it is that one injects..and Amrita,

    I have a leaky memory – I didn’t really remember her Zaara avatar, but yeah, went back and looked up her outfits from that movie, and rather than downmarket, I’d say MUCH brighter!

    This video is now all over B4U 😦

    Pitu – really?! Very low key isn’t she? But given the shelf life of a Bollywood actress I’m not surprised.

    Amey – no, no I would NEVER mix up the two. The kimi Katkar one is a classic. Of what sort is another question entirely.

    Beth – I like a bad movie once in a while but this one is too much even for me! But hey, you can report back if you like. 😀

    M – AHAHAHAHAA!!! Well, don’t look at me, I didn’t have anything to do with it.

    of the deepti bhatnagar in operation cobra, helen brodie in monsoon sort 😀

    @Pitu and Amrita: Aren’t we forgetting Rekha in Utsav? Or is it in a different league with KS?

     
  22. Pitu

    October 24, 2008 at 4:41 pm

    Well, she didn’t… um… how shall I say this? ‘Show’ anything in Utsav although much was implied. A better addition to the list wud be Simi from Siddhartha, altho that was a good film.. certainly not in the op cobra category hehe..

     
  23. Amey

    October 25, 2008 at 12:40 pm

    Right, KS and Utsav belong to the genre of rare films where what was shown was really a part of the story. So does Raveena Tandon in Agnivarsha.

    Amey: How’s it? I know it’s set in some puratan kaal and I was tempted to watch it for Milind Soman’s sake. Any good?

     
  25. Amrita

    October 26, 2008 at 12:19 pm

    Pitu – ooh, I remember Siddhartha and Simi in it. I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for Simi in spite of her mannerisms. And I liked Agnivarsha. I don’t understand why so many people pile on Milind Soman – he’s rather charming. Not going to set the world on fire with his talent but he’s hardly the disaster some people have been. He’s way better than Arjun Rampal for eg.

    Amey – KS annoyed the hell out of me. Rekha was the only good thing in it. Even Sarita was meh. I don’t know why but I really can’t stand most Indra Verma projects. I think she might actually be a good actress but she has an unfortunate knack for selecting the worst projects imaginable. I just saw her on the season premiere of Bones and it was The Worst Episode EVER. She was even the most annoying thing on Rome. But that might just have been her character – I was just so pissed by that point.

    Um Amrita, when we are discussing soft-porn flicks masquerading as normal flicks, you might not want to use phrases like ‘soft spot for Simi’ ROFL! AHAHAHAAHA!

    @Pitu: on top of that, she now writes posts titled “Woman on woman [crime]”…Is Amrita ka kuch karo! 😉
