THANK GOODNESS, promotions are starting up again for things. Otherwise, I have no content! Although, just you wait in about 3 weeks when we are drowning in “first looks” and “teaser trailers” for everything for the holiday season, I will be complaining about having too much content and not enough time. But today is not that day!
First, Judwaa 2! As you know, I rewatched the original in preparation for this release. And I think this song might be a mooshing together (that’s the technical term) of three different songs from the original? The look of two, and the plot point of the other.
Because it seems to have the same “boys are with the wrong girl” plot of this song. And the white suit.
But then it has the bright cheerful tropics and swimsuits feel of these two other songs.
and also this one:
So, the first thought that springs to mind is “Boy! We used to have so many more songs!” And the second thought is “Boy! Those songs were so much better!” Third thought, “wow it was cheap/clever to film both fantasy songs in the same location and just fly in the actresses on different days”. And fourth thought, “Salman’s pants? What do we think? Too tight?”
But mostly, a definite feel of “back in the day, things were bigger!” Everything besides the budget that is. Now we have this sleek and clean kind of song with rapper samples and so on and so on. But I think I would still have the kind of kooky 3 songs up above than one perfect one.
And now, for something totally different, the new Secret Superstar song! Which is STILL not the song I want! The one with the big descend at the end of the teaser.
(55 seconds in. It’s great, right? Totally the showstopping song they are holding off to release last)
Oh well, it’s nice anyway. And one thing I really like is how the songs are staying realistic to the kind of simple song a fairly untrained girl could sing and write. Nothing crazy elaborate, just good simple music.
Speaking of her being a simple girl, I really hope that boy we see doesn’t turn into a love interest. Or at least not a love interest that takes over her life. One thing I have really liked about all the songs/teasers/trailers so far is how completely boy-free her life is. She is trying to find herself (the first song), she loves her mother (the second song), and now she is thinking about how to build up her dreams (this song).
