Literally the second I fell asleep, poof! This was posted! And I stayed up late last night too! Salman must have a Margaret-tracker that tells him when I fall asleep, and that is when he posts the things.
This is a funny thing, I don’t like the song at all. But I like the fact of the song. That is, I find it repetitive and dull and unsexy (Tumhari Sulu with the glorious Vidya in a sari dancing for her husband spoiled me for actual sexy). But it is the kind of song that I want in this kind of a movie.
When “Phurr” came out, I was very depressed, because it seemed like yet another hip-hop rap remix thing, and I didn’t want that kind of thing in the dreamy romance I was hoping for from Jab Harry Met Sejal. It ended up working in context, against all odds. But my initial reaction was “I don’t much like the song, and I also don’t like the fact of its existence in this movie.”
(thank goodness the official song video turned out to be totally different from how it was used in the film)
This song, this is different. I don’t much like the song, but I want this to be a big fun silly movie with no content. And having a catchy rap song in that place in Greece with the white houses where they always film, that tells me it is going to be a big fun silly movie. It kind of felt that way already from the trailer (HORSE!), but this confirms it. A movie I can see with my family. Which I actually need, the last two weeks of December my life is all family, the only way I will be able to see it is if it is something I can watch with Mom, Dad, my sister, my cousin, my aunt, and my grandpa. Okay, maybe a little awkward seeing these sexy dances with Grandpa, but not as awkward as if it were actually sexy dances with Vidya.
