This is one of the songs of which made an impact at the time of watching the film.  I had seen this film ‘Phir bhi dil hai Hindustani’ in theatre.  This was before the multiplexes, so there were only the theatres, where the folks went to see the movie.

Now in multiplexes which are always above malls, there is the added temptation of shopping. This must be the reason, my husband is so reluctant to go to watch a movie. Over the last few years, I have also lost all interest in watching movies, altogether. As a weekend approaches, I am thinking I want to see this film or that film.  Some of those I have seen earlier or some which I have never seen. But the weekend comes and goes, without my attempting to watch them. There must be lot of reasons for this lack of motivation. For almost two months now, a 2017 movie’s link is sitting in the browser, but I have not watched it. Recently I even got my old laptop working so that I could watch some of the long pending movies and dramas. I saw a rerun of a few dramas, but new ones I am very reluctant to start. Sometimes I feel that there is a reluctance in me, to see newer things, which may supersede what has been seen earlier. It is strange, but there.

The film ‘Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani’ (2000) is a movie worth seeing or even revisiting for some of us who have seen it. Or the reviews of the film on the IMDB site make us believe. What I remember of the film is that SRK and Juhi are both television news presenters, and there is a lot of comic situations and romantic songs. Eventually they get embroiled in a nexus of politicians with the owners of the media channels, for whom they work. The song which is most endearing in the film is the title song “Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani“.  I had a general idea that the movie was ahead of its time and relevant to the electronic media’s role in the hyperbola of fear psychosis, that seems to surface every now and then.  I wrote about the role of media as a pawn in creation of propaganda in my essay ‘Corruption- A Global Phenomena’ in my post for the song “Apne Haathon Ko Pehchaan” from the 1960 film ‘Apna Haath Jagannath’.

Just recently I remembered the title song, looked for it and saw some other songs of the film including the group song which is the present post. The singers team is the old and trusted one, Sonu Nigam and Alka Yagnik with chorus. The song is very catchy and relevant to the party scene happening in the film. Reminds me of another song by the duo from ‘Yuvraj’ (2008) – “Mast Mast Dar Mastam“.

As I didn’t remember much about the film, and possibility of watching it soon is also remote, I visited the IMDB page.  The movie synopsis given there is quite lengthy and complicated.  Better to turn to reviews of which there are plenty.  Some of the reviews which were brief, I am reproducing here.

“This movie was way ahead of it’s time. . . and is highly underrated”

=====

“Movie was way ahead of its time. Couldn’t understand then why the film flopped may be because of overacting by SRK or Georgia’s effect. People expected a romcom but turned to be product which was attempted before in ‘Main Azad Hoon’. It is still reparable to today’s media circus where politics and media barons move hand in hand.”  (The meaning of “Georgia’s effect” is not known)

=====

“Way ahead of its time in the Indian context. Audiences in late 90s-early 2000s just wanted to see a romcom, especially if it featured SRK. The movie starts off that way but takes a political turn which exposes the nexus between people in power. It kind of displays the current situation in India in the year 2019. A lot of scenes would remind viewers of real-life situations that have occurred in the country over the past few years.  Maybe it was too much to take in for the viewers of the early 2000s, but this film would be a sure shot hit if it were to be released today or it may get banned in the country. Although, it does get too melodramatic in the final sequence.”

Certainly that this has been my own opinion all these years.  Every time we see a media circus, hypocrisy happening around, this was a recall sort of movie. A few of these reviews are giving the movie 10/10 rating.  Some are calling it highly underrated and a prelude to ‘Rang de Basanti’ (2006) etc. I personally feel it was less seriously tackled than ‘Rang De Basanti’, packaged more as a satirical comedy.

Song is very colourful for sure.  Jatin – Lalit are the composers and lyrics are by Javed Akhtar. On screen we see a few other artists, notably Satish Shah, Johnny Lever, Shakti Kapoor, Dalip Tahil, Dilip Doshi and others.
