Bollywood continues to unite the world. Thanks to our Russian connection, youtuber DenMotiga, here’s a longer version of the smash hit (at least it’s a smash hit in my mind) “Zooby Zooby Zooby.”

 

Dance Dance dance.jpgis an Indian Bollywood movie released on May 29, 1987, directed and produced by Babbar Subhash. The film is a musical and stars Mithun Chakraborty, Smita Patil and Mandakini in lead roles. It also stars Amrish Puri, Shakti Kapoor and Om Shivpuri in supporting roles. It is about brother and sister, who try to find success and become to big singers. (wikipedia)

The song is sung by playback singer, Alisha Chinoy, and picturized on  in the 1987 movie Dance Dance. It’s interesting to know a little of the Russian background as it relates to Bollywood. DenMotiga wrote to me:

I didn’t know that Indian films so popular in US. In Russia it is a retro style, it was very popular in USSR (about 70s and 80s) when my parents couldn’t see Hollywood films.

Who needs Hollywood when you have Bollywood? SPASIBA DenMotiga! Enjoy the Russian dubbing:

We discussed Dance Dance in yesterday’s post, but that’s not enough! I must add more. WOW! Look what happens in the opening credits of  Dance Dance ! First there’s the fabulous song, “Zooby Zooby Zooby” sung by playback singer, Alisha Chinoy AKA the “Indian Madonna”, and currently a judge on “Indian Idol 3.” Who is the actress that plays Sita?  Look at the evil A.M. Singh, played by Amrish Puri. Look at the special powers ring he wears! All this in the opening credits! And some say they don’t have time for Bollywood! Forgive them father, they know not what they say, they hath not seen the opening credits for  Dance Dance .

and the bummer re-mix, part II of “Zooby Zooby Zooby,” after Sita is kidnapped! Sing along with the lyrics!

Have you ever seen Dance Dance (1987) ?dancedancedvd1.jpg  I was inspired by this movie to choose the name “Sita” for myself after watching how his mother survived after being banished into the forest.

Radha (Smita Patil) and Ramu (Mithun Chakraborty) are siblings. Their parents Shyam and Sita (Sarla Yeolekar) are singers. Once, Shyam and Sita go to perform in Jalpaiguri to get some money, since they are in a poor status and they have to pay a monthly rent. While performing in Jalpaiguri, Sita catchs the eye of a rich and powerful man called A.M. Singh (Amrish Puri). He stops them in the mid way home, kills Shyam and rapes Sita. Radha and Ramu get the news that their parents are dead. The house proprietor banishes them and they become homeless. Years later, Radha and Ramu have achieved success and are popular singers now. Ramu falls in love with Janita (Mandakini) and Radha gets married to Resham (Shakti Kapoor), who is their troupe member. They all sing and perform together. However, Resham becomes different and strange…(wikepedia)

Watch  Mithun Chakraborty  dance here with Mandakini and his character has no idea his long lost mother, Sita, is watching from the sidelines:
