Video of the Day: Happy Halloween with “Koi Pataye” from CHAALBAAZ, 1989

Sridevi and Rajnikanth wish you Happy Halloweencb1.jpg with the song “Koi Pataye” from the movie Chaalbaaz. The movie stars Sridevi, Sunny Deol, Rajnikanth, and Anupam Kher. This spooky song is fit for Halloween. Enjoy!

Anju and Manju are twins separated when babies thanks to their mentally retarded nanny. An evil uncle Tribhuvan gets their parents killed in a car accident. He brings up Anju as a coy and easily frightened girl. Manju grows up in a basti as a happy-go-lucky club dancer. After a lot of terrifying days in Anju’s life, one day she runs away from home. On that very day, Manju has a fight with her childhood companion and neighbor Jaggu, a friendly beer drinking taxi driver. With twist of fate, their paths cross but they never meet. They somehow end up at each others place. Sooraj is the love interest in Anju’s life who is actually Manju and Jaggu is… There is the usual confusion of identities. (wikipedia)
