Here’s a little blast from the past…you have to love Prabu Deva…he is a god.
Tis the Season to get Wasted…tra la la la la la la la la
Pour a drink you haven’t tasted….tra la la la la la la la
Old Monk Rum, Bacardi, Brandy… tra la la la la la la
grab whichever bottle’s handy….tra la la la la la la la la
This original composition is coming to you direct from your very own yuletide alcoholic ROTD with compliments from the cyber bar. (a note on interpreting this classic work: the song improves vastly when you sing it after five or six drinks)
and on the subject of sharabis….
Here’s Sanjay Dutt singing “saaki saaki” from Musafir…
for all you drunkards out there: much love! Oh Sharabi! Kya Sharabi!

Sending a little Mithun Chakraborty and Rati to serenade you on a beach with “I Love You” …
Another music video has been censured….from a film because it offends religious sentiments…ironically as I went to the cinema toilet in Metro Adlabs the song was blasting on the radio but they cancelled the song and dance from the film because there are nubile young foreign girls looking too sexy while the name of the Hindu Lord and cowboy, Krishna is being chanted…..its funny that after close to three decades the same refrain is still being chanted in films with naughty white girls and suspicious gurus…. by the way I dig the little Krishna “finger dance”….actually if the flute master were here he probably wouldn’t mind the little girls shaking their butts in prayer…that was his “thing” riggghhhht?
The 1971 Dev Anand film that gave white chicks and hippies in India a bad name for decades to come…. enjoy “Hare Raama Hare Krishna” with Zeenat Aman as the naughty Desi girl who has fallen in with the evil hedonistic ways of the west including smoking pot and wearing short skirts. dirty dirty dirty! 🙂
I guess there’s something about the name “Julie” that inspires B-wood.
The 1975 flick about an anglo-Indian chic and her tragic romaaaance….Julieeeee…..ahahhahahhhhhhhhhhhhh……I love you….. check out the little seamy little seduction routine, those were the days where you expressed your lust by emphatically rubbing your collar bone and paging through underwear catalogues. go figure.
And here’s a juicy little number where Mithun Chakraborty swing dances to trumpets in “julie julie” from the 1988 Jeete Hain Shaan Se…….soooo……julie julie…humko mary nahi maangta…humko lilly nahi maangta…humko sandra from bandra nahi maangta….(to kaun maangta)….hey julie julie…..johnny ka dil tumpe aaya julie
