With St. Patrick's Day just passing, BollyCurry decided
to come up with a cliched, yet creative 'with a twist' article to
entertain our readers. As many know, St. Patty's Day is much known for
one thing in particular and that is its celebration with alcohol, most
popularly dark beer. But for the Indian audience, it's St. Patrick's Day
every day thanks to Bollywood and their alcohol promoting songs! Sit
back and enjoy as we get drunk on ripping apart the cringe worthy songs
that are all about drinking.'4 bottle vodka, kaam mera roz ka, na mujhe koi roke, na mujhe kisi ne roka'
happens to be exactly how this song starts. Honey, we sincerely hope
there's a well wisher out there to stop you because obviously we can't.
After all, I'm sure you don't want to deprive your fans of your mind
numbing raps considering how there's only so much your poor liver can
take. Considering that the lyrics leave something to be desired, the
beat is perhaps the only saving grace of this song. As a side note,
don't even get us started on his pronunciation of 'vodka' in the song!
little too inspired by Hollywood are we? We don't know about Honey
Singh, but we've got 'hungover' just by merely listening to this song!
sum this song up in literally, a sentence, it goes 'Main sharabi, main
sharabi, main sharabi, main sharabi' and 'main sharabi' till one almost
feels drunk. If it weren't for the foot-tapping music, we could fall
asleep to this song because the repetition in this song tends to be a
real downer. Dope song Honey Singh
- and yes, take that in the literal sense!
get off whatever that excites you about drinking eh, Honey Singh? We,
at BollyCurry, fear for the Indian youth if this is truly the future of
honestly cannot say that we don't jam to this song once in a while
because whether we want to admit it or not, it's a good song sung by
great artists and, of course, it has some great music. But the concept
behind it has landed itself on this list. The idea of comparing an
endearing friendship to 'desi daru' just doesn't go down well with us
what with the current obsession Bollywood has with alcohol.
We, at BollyCurry, would rather not get 'drunk' on friendship. We support the idea of 'embracing' friendship.
'Talli hai ye zameen, talli hai asmaan, sab talli hai yahan'
depicts exactly how it is in the world of Bollywood. Find yourself a 'tu' and get talli
is all we can get from this song and the video - which actually seems
fun but we are not about to admit that. After all if we did that then
how could we say that this is a cringe-worthy song?
Alright B-town, we get it. We'll make sure to get drunk and fall asleep in front of a mall.
5. "Chikni Chameli" - Shreya Ghosal [Agneepath]
you get an item song and alcohol all in one number, it's heaven on
Earth for Bollywood. This song had very easily topped all charts, and
blown the Indian audience away with a provocative Katrina Kaif offering
to light your 'beedis' having consumed a 'paua', which is essentially a
quarter bottle of alcohol.
We just might need a paua ourselves after listening to all these songs. Drinking
was portrayed as a very 'masculine activity' in the olden days in
cinema. More often than not, it was shown to be a physical expression of
'drowning in your sorrows' as shown in the much loved film, Devdas or
as a mere formality during formal events. Nowadays, that has taken a
complete 360 turn - all for the wrong reasons. Alcohol is now shown to
be the only way one can have fun, defining what youngsters should or
should not act as. Cheers to 'alcoholic songs' that have become the new
'item songs' for Bollywood, a medium to gain more money. As Salman Khan
would put it 'apne kaam banta, bhaad mein jaye janta'. Writer:
