I just finished seeing the Frida Kahlo exhibit at the Walker Musuem in Minneapolis. Bollywood fans, who did that make me think of? Kajol of course, due to their similiar eyebrows. So here’s that great tongue twisting tune from Fanaa, “Chanda Chamke!”
Zooni Ali Beg (Kajol) is a blind Kashmiri girl who travels without her parents for the first time, with a dance troupe of which she is part. On her journey, she meets Rehan Khan (Aamir Khan), a casanova and tour guide. Although her friends warn Zooni about him, she still wants to experience the feeling of being in love for the first time, and spends time with him. In New Delhi, Rehan shows her the city and starts to develop feelings for her….. The music was given by Jatin Lalit, lyrics by Prasoon Joshi and sung by Babul Supriyo, Mahalaxmi Iyer and Master Akshay Bhagwat, also Aamir Khan and Kajol have parts where they speak the tongue twisters. The tune is very similar to that of Yaara Yaara, from the film Hum Tum.(wikipedia)
Spoiler alert!!!!! They’re having so much fun here singin’ and playin’ in the snow, little does Zooni know that Rehan is about to off her dad, played by Rishi Kapoor. Rehan is a terrorist!
