Living in the Middle of Nowhere, Tennessee (for.the.moment.) means that I will never get to see Band Baaja Baaraat in a theater. The closest I've gotten to Bollywood on the big screen was a ticket I had to an early morning showing (who does that?) of Anjaana Anjaani. Not being at my movie-going best at 8am (never mind that it was an hour long drive just to get to the theater), I gave it a pass. From what I hear I didn't miss much.
So. Back on topic. Though I can't see the film in theaters, I can watch the video for Ainvayi Ainvayi obsessively. (Obsessively = 50ish times per day. All those views the video's racking up on YouTube? Yeah, that's me.)
Ainvayi Ainvayi is adorable. And pulsating. And exciting. And eminently danceable. But what I love most about it are those little moments sprinkled throughout the video that just make me smile--Ranveer's little head wiggle at "Hi-Fi" and Anushka's expression the first time she gets the "ainvayi ainvayi ainvayi ainvayi lut gaya" line.
In fact, I love Anushka's expressions everywhere in this song, so I figured I'd capture a few of them and share.

Put it all together and what do you get?
Ainvayi Ainvayi, my song of the day. :)
