    I like, in Bollywood flics, how they always burst into song, incongruous to what is happening at the instant in the plot. I think maybe it is their take on Hollywood.

    Reminds me of when my sheep just start to run for no obvious reason. Maybe I stretch point too much?:eek:

    Yes, the silly breaking into song at random times is my favorite part of Bollywood. Also they dance while they sing, that makes it even funnier. But pure Bollywood dance style usually looks better than the dancing in this clip.

    Now I am thinking of sheep suddenly singing and bellydancing in the fields...

    You know, the thing that bugged me most about this filmclip was the appalling editing. Closely followed by the "Ew, sleaze" factor.

    Was this a video clip to a song, or was it actually part of a film? It looked like it was just a song filmclip, on a par with those booty-and-body hip-hop videos.

    Well, that was certainly vapid. I lasted about one minute before I'd seen enough.

    Recnadocir, you can never overdo the sheep metaphors. Those of us in sheep country appreciate them. The friend of a friend from Australia visited here a few years ago. At one point, she referred to herself as looking "rather daggy." I asked what that meant. She said, Have you ever noticed those tags of wool, twigs, and other icky stuff that hangs from off the back legs of an unsheared sheep? Yes, I have. Well, said she, those are dags.

    I'd say that video rates about a 10 on the daggy-meter.

    Hi Gwinity. I think it was part of a film. The bollywood films have usualy 8 songs it it with dancing, bollywood actors don't sing, they just move there lips. The other films are better then that. like "devdas" "sometimes happynes, sometimes sarow" or "come... fell in love".

    He he. Ya know, if we could have seen the dancers for more than two seconds at a time, it would have helped! The editing sucked! I think maybe they've had a few lessons, cause one of the girls did an ok 3/4, and could undulate, but other than that -pure gratuitous drivel.

    It really killed me when the one chick knelt down, and said "I love you" to Mr. Cool. Such a stripper-esque scene.

    Gosh, does John Q. Public think we just whore ourselves around, or what? I guess Bombay is perpetuating the myth...

    Alaya, I wondered if it was just a filmclip because it looks too self-contained to be a part of a Big Bollywood Blockbuster. (Of course, I've only seen Devdas, so really can't judge properly). It didn't look like it flowed on from or to other parts of a movie.

    You mean you didn't have the urge to do that, too, Hadassah? What sort of dancers are we? :p

    *flees the wrath*

    In all seriousness, the clip would be just as vile if the girls were wearing bikinis or other costume instead of bedlah. At least one of them sort of looked like knew what she was doing and not just shaking her bits at the camera (or Mr Cool)...

    The overwhelming majority of Bollywood films are very low budget and this one is no exception. Even Devdas had a low budget by Hollywood standards, costing a mere $10million to create, but reigns as the most expensive Bollywood movie made to date. It would be unfair to this movie to compare it to Devdas, especially when the comparison is being made on the dancing. Devdas had Aishwarya Rai and queen Madhuri Dixit. Unfair comparison indeed.
