Waris' Dil Nachda

Just as Bollywood music blends with a zillion different styles and becomes interesting to listen to, non-filmi music videos have become increasingly tacky to match. The formula seems to be: get some good looking people, hire a choreographer, cue flashing lights and edit the hell out of the thing.

Occasionally if the artist or band is unknown, the video will show them playing to rabid crowds so that the idiots like us will assume we are in the presence of a famous live band.

This can make even catchy songs sound terrible. But Manmohan Waris' new one - Dil Nachda (on youtube) in rotation on B4U lately - breaks the mould because it actually has a plot. What plot, you might ask? Well, Waris is being mobbed by a crowd (cue: he's famous). A girl imagines she is dancing on the hood of a car (cue: you are a free spirit). Waris shows up and woos her (cue: he's available). Then she wakes up just as the song ends (cue: it could happen to you). Come on now, improvements come in baby steps around here.

Through all this much perky breast jiggling ensues. And we are talking about just Waris here. Some phaaltu Drift advice for my man. Yaar, tu theek-thak dikhta hae. Body-shody hae. Gaata bhi bura nahi hae. Fire your creative team! Until then, another sexy person to hate.

Hey...I like Jazzy B's Music....remember..."Husna di Sarkar"....he was dancin like a sumo wrestler who'd drastically lost tons of w8...all dat foot stampin n all...helped me get thru a major depression...lol...

Leera said...

I have a whole new perspective on that video, thaks to you.
Aah Jazzy B. the lives you have changed unknowingly ;)

Aspi said...

Come to think of it: how come no neo-bhangra singer has ever called himself Punja-B? Cue: Claw logo on CD.

Leera said...

Damn Aspi that's brilliant. Copyright that and let the bidding wars begin!

The quality is kinda sucky, but clear enough to observe John's growth or lack thereof as an actor.
I recently tried the Saawariya punch dance and nicked my bf's teeth with my ring. These 'dances' should come with warnings!

Killer said...

rofl.OMG.This is hillarious!
Shekhar Ki Biwi, hope your feet are better now.You are quite creative:-)
Leera, you are very funny.
yes, all these dances should come with a warning.
i tried doing the Hrithik dance once, and ended up feeling my boss's butt, because i was dancing with my eyes closed:-s

Shekhar Ki Deewani said...

HAHAHAHAHAHA....thanks Killer!!!You are creative too:-)..btw, do u still work there;-)

Aspi said...

Hey that's a catchy song except Jazzy's voice sounds annoying. Thanks for forwarding Leera.

Now, if we could only youtube our own dance videos - we'd have one funny show.

Shekhar Ki Deewani said...

Yea..and what shud we name de show.....

Anonymous said...

Aspi, Punja-B is pure genius :D
As Leera said this waris song seems like one more new age bhangra jonar number. curious why it caught yr eye and found its way to a post......

Killer said...

Yes, SkiABCD, I still work there.I got promoted after the incident;-)

Aspi said...

Anon, I turn on the TV sometimes. If there is anything that makes me laugh (and there usually is), it might make its way into a post - especially if there is a video to link to.

Its purely random.

i prefer old school Punja-B artists before they went all ghetto. i do enjoy some newer bhangra artists as well except the rap and annoying portions in the middle


O eek pal beh jana mere coal tere mithdey ne lagde bol
O jind mahi je chaliyon patiale, uthon liyavi reshmi naale
udde chitte te udde kaale
jo jind mahi ishke di kaali raat hove jeewan saavan barsaat

classic!

i also like rabbi shergill..he is actually talented

Aspi said...

true, but rabbi shergill does guitar rock. There's not a beat box in sight.

m said...

oh we're talking about Punja-G's who think they are ghetto... i was talking in general!
