Yesterday the new Badshah song for Veere Di Wedding came out, which made me think back on how long hip-hop/rap has been part of the Indian film scene in one way or the other. I know almost nothing about this (like, I’m not even clear on the difference between “hip-hop” “rap” and “rock and roll”), but at least I can put up some fun videos and start the discussion!
This is a film I just can’t help enjoying while I watch it. Knowing it is regressive and illogical and all those things. But it’s FUN!
It’s my mother’s birthday today! I debated a post of sappy mother type songs, but she wouldn’t actually enjoy that. So instead, I’m going to put up a post of all her favorite song videos!
Woo-hoo! Prabhudeva’s birthday! 44 reasons to love him, and an excuse to post A LOT of Prabhudeva songs! And maybe a few facts scattered in. But not many. (I know you may not have time to watch all the videos I put in this posts, but some of these are truly not to be missed, so the ones in bold you MUST WATCH!!!)
This was just a fun, silly movie! Which was perfect, because I had a friend over and she said “I’ve had a bad day, let’s watch a fun silly movie.” My first vote was Dil Aashna Hai, but she wanted something a little more current, so we ended up with Action Jackson. Which I somehow missed in theaters and hadn’t gotten around to seeing since.
If you are really really desperate, I have one for you! Sort of!
Thanks to Amitabh’s twitter, I just learned that 4/29/2016 is International Dance Day. I had a half moment of thinking someone was punking him, but a bit of googling confirmed that it is actually a thing! Created by the International Dance Council, a UNESCO partner group. Which means it is enough of a thing that I can celebrate by posting the best, or at least my favorite, dances! Well, some of them. Good news is, this is apparently an annual thing, so I can come up with a whole different list next year! Continue reading
