There have been many instances in the history of Indian cinema that unified us irrespective of the caste, creed, religion, region, color etc. like the unforgettable song ‘Man Tadapat hari Darshan Ko Aaj’ written by Shakeel Badayuni, composed by Naushad and sung by Mohd Rafi – all Muslims, but emoted so beautifully that till date the temples play this song or ‘Pal Pal Hai Bhari’, written by Javed Akhtar and performed by Shahrukh Khan that tells us about the good vs. evil through Ram Raavan. And now we have this Anthem ‘Why This Kolaveri Di’ … Tamil-English(tanglish), Hindu-Hindi, Dosa-Samosa, any combination possible in this-country/that-country…this song is a rage. Its kind of crazy to see the viral effect the song had. It was so simple, ‘catchy and original’ as said by Amitabh Bachchan in his tweet.
I think it clicked because “the ‘Murderous Rage’ was so drunk that it could only humor itself.”
Only if everyone is blessed with such a rage in reality too, my hubby would have been a happily married man.
Take a look at my kids taking on the soupy slurrpy Kolaveri Di
