A song and a dance
June 5, 2008 § 4 Comments
Do you remember the 90’s, dear peoples? Do you? The early nineties I mean. When multicoloured jeans was considered cool and tying a bright orange patterened scarf on your thigh was considered suave and singing “Tu cheez badi hai mast mast” whilst wearing blindness inducing costume* was still not considered sexual harrasment. Ahh, what a glorious decade that.
And I was witness to the rise and fall of that decade. Well, fall mostly, but it has its memories. Like the masala movies, their dance sequences, the multicoloured clothing, the mullets. And I relived some of that lost decade yesterday when I came across this song from Deewana (which happens to be SRK’s first movie). Look at them two go, dancing toh dekho. Such simple times those, and dancing was so simple.
Thrust pelvis, make motions with hands.
Shake shoulders. Move feet in random order.
Look at partner with saucy expression.
The lady in the video(Divya Bharati, who happened to be a favourite of moi), is no more. The
leda guy in the video is a superstar now and owns a cricket team. Doing embarrasing work in the beginning of your career pays off I see. I do not lose hope for myself then.
