R is for Rabba luck barsa

Does anyone remember the time when Lucky Ali made his debut with 'O sanam'? Not only were we totally blown away by the song, we were also fascinated to know that the veiled mystery woman in the video was his real wife. The camera alternated between him in a headdress, and his wife in a veil (and we never got to see her face at all).

This was in 1996.

Cut to 2010. Himesh Reshammiya decided to recreate the whole thing in his movie Kajraare, but in classic Himesh style. He decided to play the roles of both Lucky Ali AND his wife.

Except that when the "veil" comes off, this is not what you expect to see.

The song goes 'Rabba, luck barsa' as Himesh looks up to the heavens. But all he sees are two birds (though I can think of one very interesting kind of luck that they can barsao over his head).

Think of all the songs we have seen where the scantily-clad heroine is running around in a desert for no good reason. How refreshing it is to see an overclothed hero do so.

Is it me or does the camel seem to be enjoying the beat?

Just like our desert heroine, Himeshbhai also insists on multiple costume changes. At least 5 or 6 in this song.

And he also does shit like this.

He does 'cheers' with traditional drinks. Until the locals are also laughing at him.

Our celebrity also tries to hide his face lest the junta recognises and mobs him. To his shock (and our amusement), no one gives a shit.

Please watch at your own risk.
