I saw something on TV yesterday that made me laugh till my sides split.
The preview for Himesh Reshammiya’s remake of Karz. Sorry, KARZZZ.
So there’s one song where who else but our man Himess (notice I do not say ‘Himesh’) with his Paul McCartney-inspired haircut has his hands folded & is going “Hari Om, Hari Om”...which I’m assuming is the new version of the cultish ‘Om Shanti Om’.
As if that wasn’t enough to kill fans of the movie, there’s another song ‘Tandoori Nights’ with our man (again) on the dance floor with Urmila Matondkar who seems to take the term ‘bee-stung lips’ very seriously. Her pout is fake as can be, and isn’t she like, 100 years old??? Someone please tell her that ‘coz I think she has become forgetful with age. Urmila has always been a challenge to one’s tolerance levels but she’s getting progressively worse with time.
And then comes the scene-stealer….a back shot of Himess with a guitar slung over his back, against a black backdrop with a giant red disco ball. The caption reads, “Monty is Back….With a Vengeance”.
Poor Monty….of the original KARZ spelled with a single ‘Z’ that is.
I’m sure that after seeing the preview of the new KARZZZ with a triple ‘Z’, Rishi Kapoor would be contemplating disappearing from this planet & Subhash Ghai would be counting the number of hair left on his head beneath that famous cap of his.
Himesh Reshammiya for Rishi Kapoor, anyone?
