Shakira doli re

This week's 'Video of the week' is Shakira's Spanish song 'Ojos asi' with clips from the Hindi movie Devdas. I must have watched this video a gazillion times - I just cannot get over how beautiful and seamless the editing is. The perfect harmony of the audio and the video, even though they are from totally different and unrelated sources, is surreal.

Watch this - it's almost a work of art.

Ooh, awesome. I *love* this song - I have both the Spanish and the English version. Listen to the English one sometime (it's called 'Eyes Like Yours'), the lyrics are great!

I guess it helps that 'Dola Re' and 'Ojos Asi' are almost (not quite, but almost) the same beat, so they can sync for a short while, hence the video/audio synchrony. Nevertheless, that's some wonderful editing there - I doubt people who don't know about either Devdas or Shakira would be able to tell they're not from the same source. :)

absolutely brilliant editing...
on a lighter note...sanjay bhansali wud sure get a heart attacj if he saw his paro n chandramukhi dancing like shakira...no wonder devdas foresaw this n samay rehte...he wisely chose to attain nirvana ;-)

#Thisisme,
Hehehe... you're welcome! Video of the week hai, ainwain thode hoga, kuchh khaas baat toh honi chahiye na :)

#Clueless,
Did you just say that a Shakira song has "great lyrics"? *CHOKE* COUGH *CHOKE*
Hahahahah! :D

Btw, the video is not only from Dola re, but also from Silsila ye chaahat ka and that Vinod Rathod song. And did you notice when the song went "Oooh... hmmm" and Aish did the exact same thing with her lips? WHOA! :) :)

#Bivas,
Hahahaha! LOL @ Paro and Chandro dancing like Shakira and saying "Oye Devdas, hips don't lie!" :P
