Sur 'nahi' mile !

I saw the inaugural music video of "Phir mile sur".
The initial stanza of the original song, DD1 waala, echoing in my head....
the new one.... I plainly did NOT like it.Personal opinion sounds something like this :

I mean sure, if they wudve titled it like a regular bollywood song, it cudve been likeable, but when they say its supposed to be nationalistic, I cudn't see how.

For starters, India does not only consist of movie stars. Bollywood's hogging around 65 % screen space in there.... sure, it adds glamour...sure I think priyanka looked hot and deepika looked like she was doing an ad for liril soap, waterfall and all....Shahid was doing the exact same thing with the mike as in one of his recent videos...SRK in full on Devdas mood ....Karan Johar doing ...well..nuthing actually...but still...




Tollywood was showcased for a bit, and so were the olympians.... cricketers were missed out...I mean come ON..u gotta include Sachin in stuff like that....
The North East was mostly ignored, apart from 7 odd onscreen secs....

Leave it to Shyamak to add masala and glamour....bolly-ishtyle
I'm not a HUGE patriot, but if I could make out something's wrong in there, I'm sure a lotta other ppl wudve too...

wat say?

I did not watch the whole thing cause I did not like it. Not memorable in any way. And most certainly not comparable to the original!

i know...i was like fed up seeing ranbir and deepika..and the controversy behind them not shooting together!1 DUH?? CAn we get over that...and where on earth wre so many other people...olympians..dhanraj pillay?? Leander and mahesh...okay..sania mirza?? And what on earth was shilpa shetty doing in the song...they've killed it!!

I completely agree with you.Nothing beats the original version..and the presence of too many Bollywood 'stars' was unnecessary.Abhinav Bindra and other sportspeople hardly got any screen time...and at 17 mins the video is too lengthy.

P.S:Nice blog btw.

i agree....the vid is such a dissappointment....are there no intellectuals in our country or nobel laureates or scienists...are they telling us they are too busy to be showcased in the 'national pride video'..
karan Johar is like limited creativity......i dont have major expectations from him.
