Happy May Day! Or, International Workers Day!

Happy May Day/Labor Day!  For an industry that is also dismissed as being frivolous and full of fantasy, Indian film really has a lot of songs about work!

1. I would definitely work in Aamir Khan’s sweat shop.


2. I do not want to work in the fields with Nargis, it looks horrible!


3.  The army with Farhan Akhtar looks moderately more fun!


4. I don’t want to work with him, but I do want Amitabh to settle all my labor-management-union disputes for me.


5. And finally, a simple definition of collectivism!

  1. Nice collection! I’d rather join Indian Army circa Hrithik rather than Farhan’s era.All those delicious men!But do you really want Amitabh to settle your labor-management issues? Look at what he did to the poor workers in Namak Haraam.


    • Well, if I am picking my Indian army based purely on looks, I think I might have to go with LOC: Kargil! I can choose between young Abhishek, young Saif, young Akshaye, mature Ajay and Sanjay and Sunil, and about a dozen other actors (how is that cast so stacked?).

      And you’re right about Amitabh! I guess really I just want him on my side of the Labor dispute, management if I am management, and labor if I am labor.


  2. Whenever it comes to work – I always think of that song from Taare Zameen Par – Chale Chalo. I know it’s not hard labour or whatever, but it captures the extreme routine and machine-like nature of urban living pretty well.

    And….I loved Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ke!
