Songs - the basic necessity of every Bollywood movie. Today we, at
BollyCurry, discuss the videos of six songs from three recently released
movies in order of the date the movie released and discuss it in terms
of what appealed to us and what did not.
First up is "Besharam" from Besharam,
translates to 'shameless' in English, appropriately titled for the song
video that could be described exactly that. The heartthrob of many,
Ranbir Kapoor, lives up to the 'besharam' title, showing off his chest
hair, wearing Rajnikant style glasses, and shaking his booty
provocatively with some very controversial yet entertaining
expressions. One can't watch that video and nod their head in approval
while shuddering at the same time! All in all, we at BollyCurry consider
ourselves a little 'besharam' hence, we put this song's video in the
Our next song happens to be from Besharam as well (told you we were besharam) and is
called "Dil Ka Jo Haal Hai". Where "Besharam" was fun to watch, "Dil Ka
Jo Haal Hai" feels like a drag. Where should we start? Let's start with
the music. The music is reminiscent of the 80s and 90s, which we don't
have a problem with, however, the video in no way complimented the song
itself. The story line of the movie till that point also did not match
up with the video of the song, confusing us further. We unfortunately,
label the video, 'bad'.
The next movie we will examine is Boss
and the first song from
that is "Har Kisi Ko" starring Sonakshi Sinha and Akshay Kumar. This
song is by far one of the best we have seen in some time. As promised,
the song happened to be a tribute to late Feroz Khan which it
successfully was. Wearing the full cowboy attire, Akshay entered in an
open jeep and stopped at a ranch aptly named Boss' Ranch. Sonakshi Sinha
in her white and red saris looked sultry and reminiscent of the many
heroines who starred opposite Feroz Khan, particularly Sridevi who also
wore the same colored saris in the original. Both not only brought back
the feel and essence of the original, but created a new essence with
their moves and the music. From us this song deserves more than a
"good", but to keep with the flow we'll give it a "good".
"Party All Night", also from Boss, was completely the opposite
of "Har Kisi Ko". If 'Har Kisi Ko' was a traditional cultured song,
'Party All Night' happens to be the kind you would go clubbing to. As
expected, the video was also shot in a club. According to us, guest
appearances are supposed to add to the song however, the presence of
Honey Singh or Sonakshi Sinha did not do much. The saving grace for this
video would have to be the song itself and the setting. So from our
side we give this song a "so-so" as in it was good, but there were some
things that could have been improved.
Finally we bring to you two songs from Mickey Virus
. The first
song on our list is the highly addictive "Pyar China Ka Maal Hai". The
song is fast-paced, funny, and enjoyable, and we would expect that the
video be the same or similar as well. And while much of it was, we felt
that there were places were the song could have done better. The song
being fast-paced deserved fast-paced moves, not slow-paced like the slow
walk that is quite popular in movies when introducing an actor. We also
felt that the actors deserved a better introduction than the regular
style of introduction. For this reason we give it a "so-so" rating.
Finally, "Tose Naina" from Mickey Virus wraps up our list.
Sadly, we end this article with a "bad" rating. "Tose Naina" is a slow,
romantic number for which you would expect the video to be slow and
romantic as well. We were half expecting something like "Teri Meri Prem
Kahani" from Bodyguard, but instead we got Mickey Arora (Manish
Paul) dancing as if it were a comic song. Bad dance moves, bad
expressions and a terrible video concept results in a bad rating.
What you hear and what you see are completely different things and
as you saw above! Some songs show you what you expect to be shown,
while others completely disappoint you. With that, BollyCurry signs off
and wishes you a happy viewing and hope you choose to watch some good
rated song videos!
