Sheila Ki Jawani...Seriously?


I’ve repeatedly been told that I listen to a lot of crappy music, and hence I have abstained from writing anything about music. But this is a song- actually more like an opportunity- that I just couldn’t pass up. You know, what I’m talking about, don’t you. You little pervert! Sheila Ki Jawani….this item song has been doing the rounds everywhere. You open the newspaper and there are headlines like

“Farah’s kids crazy about the song ‘Sheila Ki Jawani’. And this is our future generation?
“Katrina steps into Madhuri Dixit’s world”. Comparing Katrina with Madhrui Dixit, seriously? Katrina can’t even deliver a dialogue without looking constipated. Same world my ass!! More like alternate reality.
“My item song is not raunchy: Kat”. Good. But, then what’s the whole point of it being an item song?

I log on to Facebook and the video is sitting right there on top on my news feed.

It’s was freaking everywhere. So I decide, I really need to see this video that everyone’s been harping about. And here I am - the video on an infinite loop on VLC - writing out my thoughts on the whole affair. And frankly, I’m a little dumbfounded. You see, unlike most of our sex-derived and frenzied media reporters and celeb crazy populous, I can’t possibly imagine any normal person getting a hard on by watching this video. Frankly there have been far more seductive videos, both in Indian cinema and well Hollywood’s just out of our league. Now hold on to your hat’s, I am not saying that Katrina doesn’t look good ( after all that’s all she got ), but after having seen so much skin of-late in Bollywood, this doesn’t really seem that big a deal. 
One of the reasons why this video is so-in-the-limelight is the fact that Katrina drapes herself in a white satin sheet. The media apparently loves this and believes it’s something they should blabber about every second they can. Somehow this seems a little hypocritical considering less than a month back this same media was going all “is our future in the right hands” at a harmless game being organized by an IIT.

Another topic up for discussion was Katrina’s belly dance. Has anyone ever heard of Shakira? Hello!

Now let’s get down to the song itself. While the beats are reasonably tolerable, the lyrics are atrocious. The song shall go down in infamy for taking a cult classic dialogue and turning it into this “My name is Sheila, Sheila ki jawani”. My personal apologies Mr. Bond. Another one goes like this, “Kisi aur ki mujhko zaroorat kya, Main toh khud se pyaar jataun”. Does anybody really need me to explain what this sounds like? Disgusting? More like lol!

Look, I’m a nice, open minded guy. I’m not going to preach about how people shouldn’t watch this or shit. Hey, watch porn for all I care, just don’t get caught. All I’m saying is, is this really what we want our fickle-minded public to read, see, and hear about all the time? And it’s not just about this one video, it’s about all the paparazzi stuff that our papers emphasize. Whatever happened to papers like Swaraj, whatever happened to responsible journalism?

Ps. If Sheila Ki Jawani… turns you on, you seriously need to get a life.
