Today’s video is “Tadap Tadap” from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (1999), but even better than this song is what happens just before it. This is such a wonderfully dramatic scene, and it’s what happens right before intermission, and the movie only get BETTER after this scene! How can anyone refuse the lure of Bollywood after seeing today’s clip? Watch how Nandini’s mom questions her about how far she’s gone with Sameer and just where he’s touched her and how she replies hysterically, “He has touched my soul. His eyes follow me everywhere. Don’t separate us! I won’t be able to live without him!”
Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (1999) is an Indian Bollywood film. It was released in the English-speaking world as Straight from the Heart. It was filmed throughout the Gujarat-Rajasthan border region, in addition to Budapest, Hungary, which was used to represent Italy. It stars Salman Khan, Aishwarya Rai, and Ajay Devgan and is centred around a love triangle. Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam was well received by most critics. However Aishwarya Rai was lavishly praised in her role which many critics considered to be sensitively played by the actress. The film also became a hit at the Indian box office but moreover in the foreign box office which was mostly credited to Aishwarya Rai’s box office draw among NRIs. As such the film is considered to be a breakthrough role for her not only winning her critical acclaim but also cementing her box office stature. (wikipedia)
