….Ajj din chadheya. The rest of the album has big hangover of Jab We Met (all formula – ek club number, ek romantic, ek sad, ek  emotional ) and too much of punjabhi dhoom dhadaka! Makes it look like as if Punjabi is India’s national identity, culture, language, music, dance, food and everything else!

Twist & Aahun Aahun are peppy numbers for dance floors. That’s it. Ajj din chadheya‘s video is not out but to check out the complete song play the video link.

Lyrics – Irshad Kamil, Music – Pritam. Ajj din chadeya tere rang verga – original line by Shiv Kumar Batalvi.

And like us, if you care about the lyrics, do read on. Our favourite lines in bold.

Ajj din chadheya

tere rang varga

phool sa hai khila aaj din.


Rabba mere din yeh na dhale

voh jo mujhe khawab mein mile

usse tu laga de ab gale

tenu dil da vasta.


Rabba aaya dar de yaar ke

saara jahan chod chad ke

mere sapne sawar de

tenu dil da vasta.


Baksha gunahon ko

sun ke duwao ko

rabba pyaar hai tune

sabko hi de diya

meri bhi aahon ko

sun le duwao ko

mujhko woh dila

mene jisko hai dil diya.


Aas vo pyas vo

usko de itna bataa

Woh jo mujhe dekh ke hasse

pana chahun raat din jise

Rabba mere naam kar use

tenu dil da vasta.


Manga jo mera hai

jata kya tera hai

maine kaun si

tujhse jannat manga li

kaisa khuda hai tu

bas naam ka hai tu

rabba jo teri

itni si bhi na chali

chahiye jo mujhe

kar de tu mujhko ataa

jeeti rahi saltanat teri

jeeti rahe aashiqui meri

de de mujhe zindagi meri

tenu dil da vaasta.


Rabba mere din yeh na dhale

voh jo mujhe khawab mein mile

use tu laga de abb gale

tenu dil da vasta.

Rabba aaya dar de yaar de

saara jahan chod chad ke

mere sapne sawar de

tennu dil da vasta


Ajj din Chadheya

tere rang varga.

Its bit early but its a big one and so the reviews have already started trickling in.

Taran Adarsh (Indiafm) – Earth shattering opening weekend & historic week 1 – 3.5 stars

Gaurav Malani ( Indiatimes) – This one is dumb-akkht ishq! – 1 star

Raja Sen ( Rediff) – The pursuit of akkiness – 1.5 star

Mayank Shekhar (NDTV) – I dare you to watch it – 1 star

Mayank Shekhar (Hindustan Times ) – Surgeon genereal’s warning – 1 star (Is Mayank writing two reviews of the same film ?)

NYTimes – The bollywood sign.

Rajeev Masand ( CNN IBN) – Kambakkht Ishq is vulgar & offensive – 1 star (poor)

Kaveree Bamzai (India Today) – Punjabi family porn – 2 stars

Shubhra Gupta ( Indian Express) – Perfect for the undemanding-whats-new-at-the-plexes crowd. 

Minty Tejpl (Mumbai Mirror) – Crass N risque – 2 stars

Baradwaj Rangan (New Indian Express) – Old is cold.

As expected, its Taran Adarsh on one side and rest of them in other. That’s the differnce between a trade analyst and a  film critic.

Luv KhannaAbout half a million (ok..make it lil less) readers are reading our blog everyday looking for some Luv Khanna! We are completely clueless about this Mr Luv or Lust Khanna and so decided to google more about him.

Luv Khanna is 26 year old model & engineer from Delhi. And the reason why people are looking for him is because he is on Rakhi Ka Swayamvar. The tv show on NDTV Imagine. Or its a game show ? Or new season of laughter challenge ? Yeh, think so. Is it for real ? Or scripted ? Whatever. And he is considered to be a strong contender. Those of you who are dying to see more of this Luv Khanna, check out the video. Its a must watch. Don’t miss the last bit. Kalyug ka Ram. We are ROFL!

Suchita BhhatiaWho is this Suchita Bhhatia ? Whats her background ? That’s what Kabir Khan, the director of New York is wondering. And like him, if you are in the same boat we got the dope.

Suchita Bhhatia – Freelance writer. Have worked on Ad films with Dibakar Bannerjee. Done the making of Piyush Jha’s Sikandar & Bhavna Talwar’s Happy. Last job with Bhavna Dharam Talwar. Is from Delhi.

new yorkHer story – In 2006, she emailed Aditya Chopra introducing herself as a screenwriter. Chopra replied back and asked her to meet Arjun Sablok. She met Sablok & narrated him two story ideas. One was Osama – A Love Story. Two lead characters. Set in New York. They are in college. Fall in love. Gets married. 9/11 happens. The guy is muslim, is picked up and is sent to jail. Illegal detention. Torture. Harsh life. He comes out of jail and joins a terrorist group. Her script is registered with FWA ( Film Writers Association).

The basic premise of the story suspiciously sounds similar to New York’s main plot.

Yashraj Films version – Arjun Sablok says he doesn’t remember meeting her or hearing any story similar to New York. Kabir Khan has no clue because she never met him and doesn’t even claim so. Kabir Khan says she is doing it all for free publicty and claims that Aditya Chopra doesn’t reply to any stranger’s email.

Current status – Suchita has lodged a complaint with FWA ( Film Writers Association). Submitted email proofs and her story. Yashraj Films has decided to file a defamation case againt her. Is it to scare her or is it for true ? Not confirmed yet.

The HangoverIts The Hangover. By plagiarising or by buying the official remake rights. Its the Death at a Funeral of 2009. It was the same scene with Death At A Funeral last year and Indra Kumar made it into Daddy Kool. Ofcourse by plagiarising and had to pay later on. Click here for full report.

Back to The Hangover. It got the star ratings and box office business too. Whoever has seen it, loved it. Its the current remake favourite of bollywood. Almost every producer wants to remake it because in bollywood, comedy is considered to be safe bet always. Wish we could just learn one lesson for them. How they delivered such a big hit without any big names attached to it. Few things we will never learn.

Also in the queue, is a fourty plus actor who made headlines for his marriage, re-marriage & politics recently. He is already talking to the producers of the film. But it seems Warner Brothers is not willing to give the remake rights to anyone. They want to produce the remake themselves.

Looking at Warner Brothers’ slate of film here, Saans Bahu Aur Sensex & Chandi Chowk To China, we suggest that its better to make some money by selling the remake rights, instead of delivering one more dud. 

BTW, we loved it! Its the rudest, crudest & funniest film of the year! Don’t miss it. The fat bearded Jesus is the show stealer.
