I was putting this off and putting this off, hoping subtitles would be added so I could do a comprehensive discussion, not just a sort of discussion. But, no luck! So I will put up this kind of placeholder post, and all you lucky people who know Hindi can discuss it in depth, and the rest of us will just leap in once someone at Red Chillies gets around to hitting the magical “English Subs” button on their youtube account.
I was thinking about doing a kind of combined post with some of the other new songs releases I may have missed. But, firstly, I don’t know that there are that many big new song releases, everything is entering the Ramadan duldrums right now. And anyway, Salman is such big news that he doesn’t need anything else.
Have I mentioned before that the India-America time difference is THE WORST THING IN THE WORLD? It’s just come up again, because Karan Johar tweeted the first poster and first teaser for Badrinath Ki Dulhania about 20 minutes after I went to bed. EVIL!
I thought there was news today, but then I dug into it, and yeah, there’s no news. It’s just rumors and suppositions with famous names thrown in to make me click the link. Oh well.
Why is this not bigger news? Out of all the people I follow on twitter, only industry analyst/journalist Taran Adarsh tweeted it. And it only had like 20 thousand views on youtube when I last watched it. Maybe the content is making Adi look for a slower roll-out?
I did a stupid stupid thing, and stayed up until midnight my time so I could see the Karan Johar Ae Dil Hai Mushkil teaser as soon as he posted it at 10am India time. But now that I have stayed up, I might as well write about it real quick before I finally go to sleep!
