Blind spot

So I'm singing 'Maine pichhle saath dinon mein' as I'm making dinner. Viv is hanging around the kitchen, generally not doing anything useful, but whatever's on the cutting board is disappearing at an alarming rate.

"Do andhe match ke passes! Mere naye naye sunglasses!" I sing/yell.

"Hahaha!" He starts laughing.

"What?!" I glare at him.

"Do andhe match ke passes?"

"Isn't that what he sings?"

"Hahahaha! No!"

"Are you sure??"

"Yeah-a! What is andhe matches?"

"Err... I don't know... You know the lyrics these days..."

"But andhe match ke passes?"

"Well, maybe andhe match ke passes means... like... you know... blind passes?" I make a feeble attempt.

"And what on earth are 'blind passes'?"

"Blind passes... as in passes when you don't know what your seat number is? You know? Like a blind date?" I try to sound confident.

Viv gives me the 'you're-bullshitting-and-you-know-it' look.

"Okay fine, I don't know what andhe matches and andhe passes are. But this movie has weird lyrics! They have a song about hissing snakes! Zehreele zehreele! Kaale neele peele!" I am still in denial.

"Okay fine, let's listen to it."

I play the song on the computer.

Farhan shrieks, "Do andhe match ke passes!"

"See?? I mean, hear??" I do a victory dance.

Viv plays it again.

Farhan shrieks again, "Do andhe match ke passes!"

"Hahahaha!" Viv is laughing non-stop.

"What?!"

"It's one-day match ke passes!"

"No it's not!"

"Okay, what do you think makes more sense, huh? Andhe match or one-day match?" He smiles his annoying wise smile.

I don't have words. I just stare at him blankly.

The most shocking part of this conversation was the complete role reversal. Usually he kills the lyrics and I resurrect them. This whole conversation was all wrong - it was as if he was saying my dialogues and I was saying his.

Mere yeh din aa gaye hain?

Now Viv has started correcting lyrics I sing????

I must be losing it.

I need a holiday dammit. :/

harsha said...

silver!
and yeah.. lyrics of that song are kind of weird..

I couldn't understand what "Meri Jeb ka ek packet" was until someone clarified it was "Mary Jane ka ek packet".

small_town girl said...

oh now i got it..
and sayesha, if viv's getting it before you, you really need a holiday! :P

Amey said...

Considering that the "andhe" is an adjective for passes and not matches, I am guessing those are the seats facing away from the ground ;)

Sanchit said...

"socha hai" mein i had confusion...

Hey you know the first time I heard the song Zehreele Zereele...I actually though the next line was 'Coffee peene chale?' and not 'Kaale neele peele'

santasizing...Fantasizing said...

:P

Urv said...

* I just read the post Age Rage :) From today onwards, u shall be called Monica bhai. Hope u can relate to F.R.I.E.N.D.S (Monica bhai rhymes with Munna bhai too)

* Rock on ke lyrics to hai hi aise yaar. I tell you what! Farhan would have written the lyrics himslef only and phir Javed ji ka naam daal diya credits mein ;)

* As for this song, I thought the second line was 'ek aadhi mahino will' :D

Urv said...

And I claim gold. Muhahahaha.

Aaj kal ke bewda bewdi.. Pata nahi dyaan kidhar rehta hai..

Seems Viv ka rang chadh raha hai aap pe :D and Viv pe aapka ;)

Prats said...

Take a holiday before people start disowning you....

Lolz... i hope i haven't got any serious injury... coz i actually fell off my chair laughing :P
My mom does this pretty often... and would also insert new words...sometimes whole lines from another song...and then says... "what? ...i thought its part of this song only... both the songs sounds pretty similar..:/" :D

Vinit said...

Hahaha i also got confused to "Mary Jane ka ek packet" with "Meri Jeb ka ek packet".

phatichar said...

Cool movie, though. ;-)
