I was about to say that if Amitabh did this, I'm sure I would find it hilarious, but since it's Govinda, I'm not convinced - and then I got to your sentence about AAA.

Right before the yodel, after saying "Tony nahin, Anthony nahin," did he say he wasn't Michael Jackson?!? He DID!

Those pants are TIGHT (and I do not mean "as in 'fly'"). How did he do so many moves in those?

Also, I think a ding dong walla must be either a porn producer or, more likely, given the setting, someone who sells Hostess snack cakes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ding_Dong

Yep, he did say he wasn't Michael Jackson -- I mentioned that to someone else, because I wasn't sure I'd heard it the first time 'round.

I am constantly amazed at how Govinda can dance in pants that tight. I swear, they must have outtakes where he split them.

I'm supposing that ding-dong walla is something David Dhawan made up to be jokey. You know, instead of saying outright that he's a pickpocket and petty thief. Instead, he's an *amusing* pickpocket and petty thief.

The more I think about this film, the more I think this is just the first in David Dhawan's never-ending series of film remakes. I think it bears serious comparison to "Amar, Akbar, Anthony" in more ways than just this song.

Have you seen the movie of Bridget Jones's Diary? I LOVE how Renee Zelwegger does the voice over of "ding DONG" when Hugh Grant first enters the film, as if to say "ooh la la" and "yummy" and "hel-LO there" all in one. So maybe _that_ is what ding-dong walla is.

If one must be a thief, one should definitely be jolly about it and provide some sort of compensation (in the form of frivolity) to one's victims, I suppose.

katherine

Okay, as much as I adore Govinda? I doubt I'd be doing a Bridget Jones-style ding-DONG if he walked in the room. I'd be saving that for ... say...Hrithik. Or John Abraham.

The thing is, like Anthony Gonsalves, he's not a *real* criminal, he's just strayed off the path and needs a noodge to get back on it. He needs to be reunited with his brother. Okay, not his real brother, his adoptive brother. Amar. You know, Police Inspector Amar?

I think there are not enough hours in the day to think about David Dhawan and his remakes.

Beth

ding-DONG is so useful. I'm saving it for Abhishek. Or Shashi. But I do not want to give Shashi a heart attack, so I should probably scale it back a bit. I'm really bad at keeping my inner monologues inner sometimes :)

I think David Dhawan would be THRILLED to know someone is giving his work such thought. You should interview him!!!!

katherine

Seriously? I would *love* to interview him. I'd never be able to, I'd end up all wibbly at his feet I'd be so excited.

But one day. Maybe. It would be so cool.
