"Visually Pleasing Songs | Chaiyya Chaiyya - Dil SeThe gorgeous image accompanying the quote reminded me how right this was. A thousand times YES - beautiful scenery, unforgetable song and OMG THE DANCING, THE DANCIIIIIINNNNG, GUH
I have heard all about how Kajra Re with Aishwarya is the best item song of all time in Bollywood cinema, my response to that? Let me show you this n00b song called Chaiyya Chaiyya with Malaika Arora and Shahrukh Khan.
You think that shaking the hips in a brothel was hot, in this video Malaika is shaking her hips on a moving train. Shahrukh is whipping his hair back and forth; the scenery is beautiful; the backup dancers are A+. IF you are still not convinced, this music was done by AR Rahman." - source
I always wonderedwhether some of the dancers, you know, fell off that moving train since they were normally two to three peeps in a row and sometimes without sides to the top of the train carriage and the surface wouldn't even be flat - and there they are jumping around in sync on the roof of a moving vehicle :O
(...then there's the cinematography in Jiya Jale here and Madhuri in Aaja Nachle ♥ I also found it very interesting that though Rani is not the best dancer, Dil Bole Hadippa has over 4 million hits within a year O_O)
