Remember the exhilarating Ghost World opening? Jaan Pehechaan Ho!!! Masked dancers go bezerk dancing to a high energy gogo-like song by Bollywood legend Mohammed Rafi. Ghost World’s Enid just goes along dancing the crazy dance wich is highley contagious, I’m sure you’ll find as well.
Jaan Pehechaan Ho comes from Bollywoods’ first “horror thriller”, Raja Nawathe’s Gumnaam (1965). The story is completely hilarious though, involving a very funny drunken showgirl, a planecrash on a spooky island, a mysterious book and naturally a murdermysterie and a lovestory.
Topping it all off with drunken duets, extravagant beachparties and more psychedelic dancemania. If you ever get the chance: Watch It!!
Now, thanks to WFMU’s Beware of the Blog I finally have the complete clip, instead of just the Ghost World excerpt. Much obliged, WFMU’s Brian & others!!!
