~ Creative Bollywood: Shooting complete Song in Single Take!

Its very difficult to shoot a complete 5 minute song in Single Take (two steps)  using 100+ supporting dancers, with constantly changing camera angles and Actor’s cloths, but Director Ms Farah Khan managed to do this difficult task in this Creative song shoot in her 2004 hit movie Main Hoon Na (I am here), see below (with English Translation).

Why Indian/Bollywood movies has Songs?
Probably cultural effect which reflects in our movies too! We believe Life is  celebration, which is incomplete without song, colours  and dance.  Indians are expressing their emotions in poetry since 10000+ years i.e. during our great Hindu founding fathers Rishis/Yogis days, who wrote many Hindu scriptures in Mantras/Hymns/Kavyas!

Even many difficult Scientific, Philosophical, Maths and Astronomy things in Hindu scriptures are in written in Mantras/Kavyas to understand easily by masses!🙂

Songs are easy way to express emotions, understand and remember the message! But obvious, outsiders who don’t know Indian culture will find it weird!

Watch Creativity and Hardwork behind in shooting one complete song on single set with 100+ dances in Single Take.

Full Lyrics with English subs (Via youtube user)

"Bollywood=Songs=Creativity-Fimling"

Chorus:
What’s up?

[ Chale jaise hawaayein, sanan sanan…]
Like a whispering, wandering wind

[ Ude jaise parinde gagan gagan…]
like a bird soaring in the sky

[ Jaayein titliyaan jaise chaman chaman…]
like butterflies flocking through a garden

[ Yunhi ghoomoon main bhi magan magan..]
I will wander, lost in ecstasy.

[ Hey hey! Hey hey! Hey hey! wo…]
Hey hey! Oho aaha aa

[ Main diwaani dil ki raani, kabse anjaani…]
I’m mad with love, the queen of hearts, a stranger to grief;

[ Sab kehti hoon woh karti hoon, jo hai thhaani…]
when I fear, I lose myself in what I do

[ Chale jaise hawaayein, sanan sanan…]
Like a whispering, wandering wind

[ Ude jaise parinde gagan gagan..]
Like a bird soaring in the sky

[ Jaayein titliyaan jaise chaman chaman..]
like butterflies flocking through a garden

[ Yunhi ghoomoon main bhi magan magan..]
I will wander, lost in ecstasy.

What’s up?
Say what?

[ Koyi roke koyi aaye, jitna bhi mujhko samjhaaye..]
Any who stop me, any who come,

[ Main na sunoongi kabhi..]
no matter how much they reason with me, I don’t listen to no one

[ Apni hi dhun mein rehti hoon..]
I live according to my own whims;

[ Main pagli hoon main ziddi hoon..]
I’m insane, I’m stubborn,

[ Kehte hain ye toh sabhi..]
so says everyone.

[ Koyi nahin jaana, ke armaan kya hai mera..]
No one’s yet realized the desire that drives me.

[ Chale jaise hawaayein, sanan sanan…]
Like a whispering, wandering wind

[ Ude jaise parinde gagan gagan…]
Like a bird soaring in the sky

[ Jaayein titliyaan jaise chaman chaman…]
like butterflies flocking through a garden

[ Yunhi ghoomoon main bhi magan magan…]
I will wander, lost in ecstasy.

[ Hey hey! Hey hey! Hey hey! wo…]
Hey hey! Oho aaha aa

[ Aaye haseena ye toh aaye…]
If beautiful women appear,

[ mujhko dikhaane apni adaayein…]
Let them; let them flaunt their charms before me

[ Main bhi kuch kam nahin yeah!…]
I’m no less than they are.

[ Aankhon mein aankhein jo daaloon…]
When I look into others’ eyes,

[ Dil main chura loon, hosh chura loon…]
I won’t just steal their hearts, I’ll steal their wits!

[ Koyi ho kitna haseen…]
No matter how beautiful,

[ Mera..ho gaya woh jo ik baar mujhse mila…]
a person becomes mine who meets me just once.

[ Chale jaise hawaayein, sanan sanan,
Ude jaise parinde gagan gagan…]
I’m a vagabond, but everyone has acknowledged my appeal

[ Jaayein bhawrein jaise chaman chaman…]
like bees swarming a garden,

[ Yunhi ghoomoon main bhi magan magan…]
Just like that I roam from one beautiful gal to another
