Divertissement

As is to be expected from a Friday the 13th, today has been hell so far, so I'm going to cheer myself (and you, dear reader) up by posting a link to...

...my favourite Indian film song of the moment: Woh ladki hai kahan ("Where is that girl?") from Dil Chahta Hai, which I got from a friend on DVD as a Christmas present. The main musical influence here seems to be Irish, of all things. I love Indian eclecticism (and I apologize for the poor sound quality, but at least the clip seems to be legal. Lyrics, with English translation, are here, by the way).

the new bollywood rage is about the movie "kal ho na ho" ("whether tomorrow comes or not") with shah rukh khan ("devdas", "k3g"), preity zinta ("dil chahta hai") and saif ali khan ("dil chahta hai"). you should check out the soundtrack as well...it's pretty good. but yeah, "dil chahta hai" is one of the best of recent years...not your usual 'masala' flick.

Really liked the song/graphics. After seeing Suw's modern art "sun" piece, I feel like I've been on a virtual art tour. I see what you mean by Irish influence. Part of this reminded me of the song playing while Kate Winslet danced with Irish passengers below decks in Titanic.
