I already put up a post with babies to celebrate Krishna’s birthday, because Krishna was a baby. (I don’t know why American culture doesn’t make that simple connection and make Christmas more about babies instead of trees). But, at least in Bombay, there is an added twist to the celebration with the “Dahi Handi”. Which is also a fabulous excuse for really fun song numbers in Bombay-based movies.
1.1 This is such a great Hero’s Introduction scene.
2. This is an old video, but I love the very matter of fact way Shahrukh breaks the pot. It’s not nearly as dramatic when it’s just sort of swung over to you, instead of having to climb a whole tower of people.
3. This is a fun song, but it also makes me feel guilty because I still haven’t seen Vaastav!!!
4. I also haven’t seen Hello Brother, but I don’t feel guilty about that at all. First, because it isn’t that great of a movie. And second, because I have tried really really hard to watch it (I like Rani and Salman as a couple), and have had no luck! I even bought the DVD once, and then discovered it had no subtitles once I got it home.
5. Haven’t seen this movie either, nor have I really heard that much about it, so I don’t feel that bad. But I do like Parveen Bhabhi and Amitabh together, and it is a cute song.
6. Okay, and now the fun one. Again, still haven’t seen this movie! But it’s one that’s on my list, because I know it’s worth while. And this song at least is super great, and I’ve seen it about a million times, because it was played about a million times on every music channel for like a year.
