Your weekly dose of 80's Bollywood Cheese



Just in time for the Abhishek/Aishwarya appearance on Oprah later this afternoon we present the big AB himself along with the reigning queen from down southside, Sridevi. Yes, the song is from a movie that is a quarter century old (!) but it's a jam that can stand alongside the best of them. Some remarks from fans of the song include:

Sonal: OMG!! what sort of dance are they doing? love it!! and sridevi in her prime!!

Nehal: I think that this jam is on one of the greatest compilations I own... a little something entitled the 'Rarest and Sweetest'. Great tune. I didn't know that this was the '80s. These outfits currently exist in our wardrobe. Reetu and I performed this at home last night.

Nafisa: I LOVE this song! And i would so rock that shiny, stripy dress Sri Devi is wearing in the beginning if I had it :/

G: Why aren't those rockin' sleeveless shirts still fashionable dammit?!?

To which the staffers here at Doc Bollywood say...

Sonal - not sure what kind of dance they are doing but we all need to learn it and perform it at our next together which leads us to...

Nehal - there is no other compilation album this song could have been on. you will have to teach us all the dance and let us wear the outfits which leads us to...

Nafi - you would totally rock that dress and it appears that reetu will be able to let you borrow it which leads us to...

G - if we look in nehal's closet we will see that sleeveless shirts are not only still fashionable, they are still being worn.


From the 1984 movie 'Inquillab' about being bitten by a scorpion and equating it to falling in love. The song is just dandy and sung with great gusto by Kishore & Asha. The movie never was a huge hit but combined with the cheez fashion, cheez lyrics (complete with subtitles), cheez dancing and of course 2 of the biggest stars in Bollywood history, it's been one of my favorites through the years. And as an added bonus I believe Beth (from Beth Loves Bollywood) stayed at the resort where this was filmed!

I absolutely love it! The music, the lyrics, the dancing, everything. Sridevi looks amazing and AB is in fine form. And your reponses to the comments by 'fans of the song' are great too.
