FRIENDS, the popular TV series is evergreen and has been reigning our hearts ever since its inception in 1994. It does not matter if you are a ’90s kid or beyond (both pre- and post-), it is just for everybody where age is certainly no bar. The craze of Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Chandler, Monica and Joey is so much that not only does the sitcom remain the most watched TV series of all times, there are countless people across age-groups who will know every episode by dialogue. No wonder, the reruns appear on one channel after another.
Now, in India, though there was a sorry attempt at recreating FRIENDS for the small screen, which completely bombed, a series of movies on the premise of friendship among adults have not only done well, but become cult classics as well. One such film is the 2011 Bollywood film, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (ZNMD), directed by Zoya Akhtar. The film which followed the genre of Dil Chahta Hai, was a great infusion of drama, romance and comedy.
Now, imagine a situation when those crazy lads from ZNMD – Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar – and their ladies – Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin – perfectly time their reactions to the iconic I’ll Be There For You FRIENDS title track by The Rembrandts. Sounds bizarre, yet oddly right?
Well, designer and Youtuber Pulkit Kochar (the same guy who had Sia dance to Kala Chashma) had a similar thought as well, and what more, he did something about it too. Kochar – who has been perfectly syncing diverse videos and audios together – recently added the FRIENDS title track to edited visuals from ZNMD.
The video introduces all the main characters of the movie – though, he did miss out Bagwati! Did you enjoy the video? Tell us in the comments below.
