The Man Loves to Dance! (Govinda Week 2010)

Not being a massive fan of Govinda, I thought my Govinda Week contributions would be limited to just one post.  But not so!  This morning my mp3 player decided to bust out with Bhagam Bhag, and I couldn't help but want to post it!

Between Bhagam Bhag and Soni de Nakhre in the last post, it only makes sense to go all out and put up a bit of Govinda LIVE:

For those of you who own IIFA 2007 on DVD (and don't we all?), you'll remember what really makes this performance funny. It's not Salman on a fake horse, it's not Govinda in drag, it's not Hrithik's non-plussed look every time the camera hits him. It's that whoever was in charge of the subtitles translated the chorus of Soni de Nakhre as "oh pup, puppy shame, puppy, oh jannah jannah."

Aishwarya and Abhishek on Love Bollywood

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan will be chatting about Raavan with Raj and Pablo LIVE on the BBC Asian Network's Love Bollywood this Saturday at 9am GMT!  Don't miss it!

Govinda Week 2010!

Because all the cool kids are doing it, here's a post inspired by Govinda, that whacky lovable dancing wonder.  Sadly I don't own any of his films or there'd be a review here instead, but what I can offer are a couple of my favorite Govinda songs!

 "Usne Bola Kem Chhe" from Jis Desh Mein Ganga Rehta Hai is a song I first came across while watching SaReGaMaPa a few years ago.  Mauli Dave did an outstanding version, and it became one of my favorite songs.  It was only a few months ago that I thought to myself, hmm...maybe I should check out the original. (Be patient, the guy who posted this vid did a bit of self promotion in front of it!)

My only other exposure to Govinda (besides his brief bit in Om Shanti Om, which follows) comes from his appearance with Salman Khan at the 2007 IIFA Awards, where he performed to the hit song "Soni De Nakhre" from the film Partner.  I love love love him in this video.  He almost makes up for having to watch Salman and Katrina "dance."

And lastly, a very brief glimpse of Govinda in "Deewangi Deewangi" from Om Shanti Om.

It's a Wedding! (Kajra Re)

I'll be at a wedding in NY this weekend, so no posts for a week.  But no worries, I'm leaving you with a song I heard at no less than four weddings in the last two years.  Enjoy!!
