You won’t be able to stop your feet from tapping. – Babumoshai Bandookbaaz song Aye Saiyan: Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Bidita Bag’s crazy moves make the revised version of this folk number sound funky – watch video
Babumoshai Bandookbaaz‘s earthy feel has made it an instant hit with people. Everyone now wants to watch this film. Then there’s also Nawazuddin Siddiqui, whose every movie is a complete delight to watch because when it comes to him, superb acting is guaranteed. He gets into his characters so easily that it seems he never stops acting even when the camera is not rolling. The best example of that can be seen in this song, Aye Saiyan, as well, where you can see how he is enjoying Bidita Bag’s singing and her quirky moves.
Nawaz and his friend are seen having a drinking session. He then tells his friend that Bidita sings really well when she is two pegs down. While she behaves coy initially, she proves Nawaz right later when she starts singing after drinking. The song gets really interesting after that. In between, you can see how Nawaz is complimenting her for her singing and even his friend gets all fired up to hear it. Check it out right here.
Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, which should ideally be in news for its content, has been hitting the headlines because of Censor Board’s outdated ways of certifying films. They have levied 48 cuts on the film and as if that’s not enough, they even apparently hurled abuses at the producer, Kiran Shroff. They asked her how could she make a film like that being a woman. She told BT, “They (CBFC) had an internal discussion for an hour after the screening. First, they told us that they were giving us an A certificate. Then they told us that there are 48 cuts. We argued that if the film is for hots, then why have so many cuts. They didn’t bother much, and continued to explain each cut and their logic behind it. In the middle of that, a lady officer turned to me and said, ‘Aap aurat hokar aisi filmein kaise bana sakti hain’. And before I could speak up, a man in the committee said, ‘But she is not a woman. Look at what she is wearing.’ I was dumbfounded.”
Now you know why Lipstick Under My Burkha had to go through so much to get released. Men at CBFC are definitely scared of women.
