Damadamm!

The story,for those who care,is this : there are two girls,and a guy.

Director: Swapna Waghmare

Cast: Himesh Reshamiyya,Sonal Sehgal,Purbi Joshi

Indian Express rating: *

The burning question that comes to mind after you’re done with Damadamm!,is : can you see a two hour film just for a song? Actually,make that two. Because the only thing that I can safely recommend are two full-blown unapologetically cheesy ditties,both of which feature Himesh Bhai himself,and some hilarious lines.

The story,for those who care,is this : there are two girls,and a guy. Due to a stroke of luck,Himesh finds himself free of a girl-friend (Joshi) who calls him Babuuu and claims she trusts him,when obviously she doesn’t. She calls him all the time; he employs low battery,bad connectivity,and lies. A new girl (Sehgal) on the block smiles sweetly at him,and talks of how she loves giving people ‘their space’. Himesh Bhai is taken up with this non-possessive creature,leaving his girlfriend in a puddle of tears and reproach.

This is how it goes. Himesh : Jaan,I miss you. Jaan : Babuuuu,I miss you more. Tumne phone kyon nahin kiya? Ek sms toh bhej sakte thay. After a few rounds of this,you retire,hurt. And wait for the songs. The first goes– Like A Mango,O,O,O. It has Himesh Bhai in a white suit,a full- throated woman at a mike,picking up the operatic seconds. The other has the leading ladies in ‘anarkali kurtas’ going No Touching,No Touching. It’s been all the rage online,and is allegedly Himesh Bhai’s tribute to Rekha’s classic Umrao Jaan song. Whatever.

For this gem you have to wait right till the end,so banish any thoughts of sneaking off mid-way. Only seeing,only seeing.
