Chameli (2003)

Greetings all,

Sometimes I run across a song that is so different & special - it needs exploration from many different angles. This week that song is {Sajna Ve Sajna} from the movie 'Chameli'. The movie is quite good & very different than your average Bollywood flick. It takes place over just 1 night in Bombay, has some pretty salty language and a great performance by Kareena Kapoor (who had not impressed me in any movie prior to this).

The song is sung by Sunidhi Chauhan, a relative newcomer to the Bollywood scene with an amazing raspy voice & great range. The lyrics & music are both perfect as well - all in all a great song that doesn't get old despite many playings. I am not the only fan of it however - the remix {Sajna Ve Sajna(remix)} & video are apparently playing in the hottest clubs here & in Europe. See the video here
