My Heart Goes Hooray! for Bollywood

When I see an amazingly huge choreographed Indian dance number, Dil Bole Hadippa! For all you non-Hindi speaking peeps, that means, "My Heart Goes Hooray!!" - and that is the name of the Bollywood film we are featuring today :)

Dil Bole Hadippa!! is a film about a young woman who pretends to be a man to join an all-male cricket team. The film is loosely inspired from the 2006 American film She's the Man starring Amanda Bynes, which is further adapted from Shakespeare's play Twelfth Night.

The New York Times calls the movie "a fantasy of the Indian heartland, a perfect setting for splashy musical numbers". And isn't that why we watch Bollywood - for splashy musical numbers!!

Check out this super popular song, and the title track from the film - Hadippa (the remix). The beat is killer and the dance moves are sick! We especially love the drum breakdown at the 2:15 minute mark...
