Hey, it’s “A Fish Out of Water”! I got tipped off to this one when I went to old post at Parties, Sarees and Melodies to download a copy of the original soundtrack by Laxmikant Pyarelal. Thanks for the tip, Stella_1! This has some real ROTFL moments (I really fell off my couch at 1:30)… That having been said, after one viewing of the “dancers” here, maybe some of you will have a better appreciation of Sandhya.
OK, I have to admit, at least in terms of the music, I think the next one is actually good! (By the way, I think I once also posted a Pakistani mujra done to this remix – partly for the same reason, I actually like it!) I don’t mind the video so much either (though I admit I didn’t exactly like it at first either) – it is pretty funny in a tacky way. (In fact, it embarrassingly reminds me of some of my own experiences in my youth, when I went to “New Wave” clubs.) I suppose it’s a bit insulting to the Asha Parekh dance that the main part comes from, but on the other hand, it also samples “I Love You” from Hare Rama Hare Krishna, and it contains a parody of Zeenat Aman in that very scene that I find pretty on-spot hilarious. (Actually, it’s a combination of the Zeenat Aman character and a western woman dancing in a short skirt next to her who is egging on the crowd – but in the remix, of course, she has to be updated, so she’s a bit more vulgar – though not half as vulgar as the star of the video. What would Dev Anand’s character have said about this scene?) On top of all that, if I’m not mistaken, there is also a fragment of “Mehbooba Mehbooba” from Sholay…
P.S. I considered also linking to the remix of “Ek Pardesi” (since I just linked to “Ek Pardesi” in comments to another post the other day), but I decided that that one is just too awful. And I couldn’t find any other of these remixes that I could stand (of course, there is Bally Sagoo, but that falls into another category). So, I’ll just leave it at two for now.
