Da-Bangg Tour Sydney 2017

I haven’t gone to many events since having Chhori as I love my time with my sweetheart. I always feel that I can catch up with events when she is older, as I can’t get enough of her now.

But I decided to leave her with her dad and go watch a Bollywood stars’ tour in Sydney on Saturday 22 April 2017. It was advertised as the biggest Bollywood show in Sydney with a star cast of

  • The Real SULTAN of Bollywood, Heart-throb of OVER a Billion Fans, THE HOTTEST & The SUPER DUPER Star SALMAN KHAN
  • GORGEOUS & CHARMING Bollywood DIVA – SONAKSHI SINHA
  • FAMOUS Actor/Choreographer – PRABHU DEVA
  • SIZZLING HOT BOLLYWOOD ACTRESS – BIPASHA BASU
  • GLAMOUR Girl Actress – DAISY Shah
  • THE LATEST SENSATION – SINGER & RAPPER – BADSHAH
  • THE MOST LOVED HOST OF BOLLYWOOD – MANISH Paul

I didn’t know everyone on the list but knew that it was going to be a fun night out with my girlfriends. So we bought the tickets few weeks ago.

It was held at Qudos Bank Arena and on the day of the event we got here almost an hour early to avoid traffic. I was so busy during the day, I didn’t even have lunch so we went to a café straight away before going to our seats.

The show started on time and the event host Manish Paul was funny, witty and hilarious and we couldn’t stop laughing. I haven’t notice him much before but now I won’t forget him. His jokes were spot on and kept the audience captivated. There was good amount audience interaction which made it even more exciting.

Sonakshi Sinha, Prabhu Deva, Bipasha Basu and Daisy Shah were great. They danced to popular Bollywood songs and the overall choreography was also great.

And of course, the highlight was Salman Khan who was captivating and entertaining and humble as ever. Everyone, especially the girls and the women went crazy when he came on stage and started talking. He is one of the biggest stars in Bollywood right now and it was great to see him and everyone else up-close and live.

But for me the unexpected highlight was Badshah. To be honest, I have seen his face before though I didn’t know his name but I really enjoyed his performance on the stage with the other 2 singers. They were so full of life that we didn’t want to stay seated; they made everyone dance. All the songs were really catchy even though I was hearing some for the very first time. He knew how to work the crowd and created this interactive atmosphere so we all felt like a part of this big concert.

Overall, we had a great time with full on entertainment for over 3 hours.

Here is the video of some highlights.

You are my Pumpkin Pumpkin Hello Honey Bunny

Sometimes some random thought comes to your mind and makes you smile. This post  is in that category. The other day one of my colleagues came and asked me if I had listened to a popular Nepali song called “You are my Pumpkin Pumpkin Hello Honey Bunny.” I was surprised because first of all he is not a Nepali and secondly the name of the song sounds so funny. He told me that one of his Nepali friends told him that it is a very popular song and he should listen to it.

Not being in Nepal, I am not very aware of the pop culture there and it is not easy to keep up to date. So I Googled it and found the following song.

I also found a Bollywood song similar tune to this Nepali song.

When I was watching these songs, I couldn’t stop smiling. They are so different and if I am allowed to say it, a bit weird too.

The other day when I was at my brother’s place, I mentioned this song and to my surprise, it is my one year old nephew’s current favorite. He will stop crying if someone plays that song. This makes me conclude that I am getting so old that my one-year-old nephew is beating me in current trends.

PSY’s Gangnam Style is another of my nephew’s favourite songs right now 🙂

Have you listen to this song before? Wahat is your thought on these songs?

The experience of watching Dabangg 2

As many people already know, Bollywood movies are  big in Asia and Nepal is no exception. Bollywood movies run in theaters in Nepal more that Nepali films, as far as I know.

Even when I used to live in Nepal, I hardly went to cinemas. I used to look at cinema as total waste of my time and money and if it was Bollywood movies, then it was waste of more than 3 hours of my life. So I have never been a big fan of watching Bollywood movies in cinema. If I get good reviews from my friends, I get the movie at home so I can fast forward songs or anything I don’t feel like watching. Also, the DVDs  have subtitles which help me a lot to understand the dialogues.

While in Pokhara, we normally had lots of time in the evening as it got dark early in winter and the hotel also had load shedding so we couldn’t do much or even watch TV. So one evening while we were there, we decided to go for a movie. My MIL was keen to watch Dabangg 2, a Bollywood movie sequel of the successful movie Dabangg.

So my FIL decided to call his friend who owns a cinema complex in Pokhara. He just asked him if it would be possible to reserve 5 seats for us for the evening show of Dabangg 2, just to make sure that we got tickets once we reach the cinema.

 After the conversation we drove from our hotel to the cinema hall asking for directions several times to the passers-by as the place was far from where our hotel was. After more than 30 minutes’ drive, we were finally greeted by this friend at the gate of the cinema. As we parked we noticed that there was no one in the cinema hall and the whole building seemed empty and dark.

The owner asked us to come upstairs and we all were introduced to him. He seemed pleased to meet my FIL and was addressing AS as Mr Engineer when he spoke to him (In Nepal, many people used that term to address AS). We sat on the lounge and he ordered tea for us while FIL and few other people from cinema had conversed.

The whole cinema complex was dark expect the place we were in. So my FIL asked why there was no one there. His friend then told us that in Pokhara, they are not doing night shows as the movie had been on for many weeks and night show was not popular in the winter. So my FIL said that it was ok that if the night shows was not running then he did not want to touble his friend and we could leave but his friend insisted on running the movie just for us. And to top of that, there was no power so the movie was running on generators.

Once we finished our tea, we were escorted to one of their halls and asked to seat anywhere we liked. We chose the best seats in the house. Me, AS, MIL and FIL sat in one row while our driver dai sat on another one. The owner and few other people sat behind us and the movie started. I am not sure when but the owner and other people left while the movie was running so at point when I turn around it was only 5 of us in this big cinema hall. With the movie running for nearly 4 weeks they must have watched it numerous times already!

As usual the movie turned out to be a full-fledged Bollywood movie with songs every 20 minutes and unbelievable fight sequence every 10 minutes. I was a bit annoyed that there were no subtitles as I couldn’t understand some parts of the movie. But apart from me, everyone seemed to enjoy the movie and we had a great experience of watching the movie with just the five us in the whole theatre.
