"Thoda pyaar chahiye," Lahu ke do rang (1979)

Today's Shabana-gaana is a trippy and manic number from Mahesh Bhatt's Lahu ke do rang. I haven't seen this film, though I recently acquired a copy from Indiaweekly, who couldn't wait to get rid of it - it was cheaper to buy new than to rent it! Cryptic comments from one SLP reader lead me to believe that it will be best enjoyed with generous quantities of liquor.

Anyway on to the song, which features an indifferent and irritable Shabana Azmi, aggressively and quite dashingly pursued by Vinod Khanna.

I have seen this movie and remember enjoying it although maybe more for Helen than anything (I am so happy when she has more to do than one song)...I do also remember that I found it a bit confusing, although that may be because I HAD consumed large quantities of liquor while watching it.

Those may be the loosest pants I've ever seen Vinod in.

memsaab, I didn't even know Helen was in the film - you've just caused it to leapfrog up the "to be watched" list by a bit.

Beth, I guess he can't please everyone all of the time. :)

carla, i had just put this at the top of my rental queue a couple of weeks ago when i found out that not only is Helen in it--she won a Filmfare for best supporting actress!

unfortunately, the disc has a short wait (boooooo). perhaps i'll be able to watch it *sometime* this month.
