Emoossional Attyachar !!!
The wedding brass-band version above is certainly a hoot (and an inspiring decision by Kashyap to want to do this), but for a serious listen, I would recommend the other, very grungy, rock version . Possibly the best rock song ever sung in Hindi (apologies to all the Hindi punk-band-in-a-garage I am ignorant about).
And ummm…for further fun (or not), do check out this x-rated remix as well:
NSFW depending on where you are – certainly use ear-phones or keep the volume down if you are in India. Certainly not the most of polite of languages – reminded me intensely of some conversations during the hostel days.
In case someone still doesn’t know, Dev D is Kashyap’s re-imagining of the sappy love-triangle, Devdas. As part of the minority that absolutely loved Kashyap’s earlier venture, No Smoking, I am quite looking forward to this movie.
[Also wondering when some custodians of the Bangali-kalture will call a strike in Kolkata due to perceived slight on Sarat Chandra’s legacy and asking the govt to ban the film there!
Me, I am quite happy – I have always hated the mushy, tear-jerking sentimentality and pyan-pyanani nyakamo (sorry can’t translate) aspect of many of Sarat Chandra’s works (to be fair, he created some fairly strong, adventurous characters as well), and am happy that someone is hacking it.]
