jeb mein hamari duhi rupaiya,
duniya ko rakhe thenge pe bhaiya
sukh dukh ko khuti pe taange,
aur paap punya choti se baandhe
naache hai hum ta ta thaiya hum toh aise hai bhaiya
are hum toh aise hai bhaiya
yeh apna fashion hai bahiya,
are hum toh aise hai bhaiya
ek gali mein bham bham bole,
duji gali mein alla miya ek gali mein gunje ajaane,
duji gali mein bansi bajaiya sab ki rago mein lahu bahe hain,
apani rago mein ganga maiya suraj aur chanda bhi dhalata (dhal ja) apane ishaaron pe chalta duniya ka gol gol pahiya (dhal na)
are hum toh aise hai bhaiya - 2
yeh apna fashion hai bahiya,
are hum toh aise hai bhaiya
aaja banaaras ka ras chakhle aa,
are ganga mein jaake tu dubki laga
rabdi ke sang sang chaba lena ungali,
maathe pe bhaang ka rang chadha chuna lagaayile,
panva khilaayide, usape tu ???
tadka lagaayide patna se aayi ve, paris se aayi ve,
gangaji mein har koyi nanga nahaayive jiteji jo koyikaashi na aaye,
chaar chaar kaandhe pe woh chadh ke aaye
are hum toh aise hai bhaiya - 2
yeh apani nagari hai bahiya,
are hum toh aise hai bhaiya
didi agar tujhko hoti jo muchh,
main tujhko bhaiya bulaati tu soch
are chhutaki agar tujhko hoti jo puchh
toh main tujhko gaiya bulaati tu soch
didi ne na jaane kyun chhodi padhaayi ghar baithe amma sang karati hai ladaayi
amma bechaari pisane hai aayi, raat din sukh dukh ki ??chalaayi
aur ghar baithe baithe baabuji hamaare
lautari mein dhundate hai kismat ke taare 321272
majhdhaar mein hamari naiya,
phir bhi dekho mast hai hum bhaiya hum toh aise hai bhaiya
, are hum toh aise hai bhaiya
dil mein aata hai yahaan se
panchhi banke udd jaayu
shaam pade phir daana lekar lautke apane ghar aau hum toh aise hai bhaiya,
are hum toh aise hai bhaiya

"Aaja Nachle" Music download!

Music of "Aaja Nachle" is release yesterday.Here is donwload link and enjoy! And Waiting for Konkona Dancing.

Konkona favourite 5

The article on screenindia discribe Konkona 5 favourites.

Book: Suketu Mehta’s Maximum City: Bombay Lost And Found, which is "Not just a travel book, but an autopsy of a city that is morally dead”. Mehta’s take on the decadence of the island city appealed to Konkona and she recommends it as a”great read.”

Movie: Stanley Kubrick’s ‘87 release Full Metal Jacket, which she watched only recently makes it to her current hot list. The film is about ammunition used by infantry riflemen and the film portrays the urban Vietnam War fought by the U.S. Marines echoing the all-engulfing feeling of loss.
Past-time: Give her some time off and rest assured that she will dash up to meet her friends. She just loves to “bond” with buddies here and back home in Kolkata.

Travel: Konkona simply adores travelling to exotic places and the most exotic so far has been the Canary Islands. “I didn’t even know where it was until I got there,” she confesses. Canary Islands are an archipelago of seven islands of volcanic origin in the Atlantic Ocean. They are located off the north-western coast of Africa.

Award: Not the recent 15 Park Avenue win at the National Awards, but Konkona cherishes her first National award for Mr & Mrs Iyer as her biggest high, and she assures that she isn’t weary of receiving awards,”Are you nuts?? I have hardly won that many,” she shoots back.

Plot of "Aaja Nachle" !

Next moth release "Aaja Nachle" is another exciting film for me ! Madhuri Dixit come back after 6 years, strange casting with never-dance Konkona Sen Sharma in second leads.

This film is about a theatre actress who protest her career start point "Ajantha Theatre".Madhuri plays a character named ‘Dia’, a theatre director, who returns from abroad to India. Dia plans to direct a play in the slum area and she chooses the famous Indian romance epic ‘ Layla and Majnun’. Madhuri has shed oodles of weight and the actress will be seen directing Konkona Sen as ‘Laila’ and Kunal Kapoor as ‘Majnu’ in the movie. Quiet interesting , right?
My most waited scene is Konkona dancing beside Madhuri and how will she have to manage it. Anyway this will be seen end of next month , moreover the songs of Aaja Nachle itself looks nice and listen worth.

After "Laaga Chunari...." eyes move to "Aaja Nachle"!

After the unsatisfied "Laaga Chunari..." , we have to expect the Yash Raj Next release "Aaja Nachle" a songs and dances one with Madhuri , greatest commercial actress in Bollywood , and Konkona Sen Sharma. The long promos is released ready on "Laaga Chunari..." and may be this one looks interesting. A successful theater actress try to proted her old dancing palace. Anyway Konkona looks quiet childish and cute in promos. Anyway we also have to look forward this movie which will release end of next month. Watch the new promos here @ Yash Raj Films ! Hopefully this time Yash Raj will get their luck, again !


And now you guys enjoy the screencaps of Konkona frm the trailers !

"Laaga Chunari Mein Daag" is a good film but not outstanding !

Today morning I am so nervous for "Laaga Chunari..." and I choose the earlest show on 12:15. The film starts very exciting with the two new promos of "Aaja Nachel" and "Roadside Romeo" . Start of the film is my favourite "Hum to Aises...." and the whole sequences are very well done. For the first part Konkona role is too small and she just paly the duty less youngest in family. Start from the second part this film become more interesting , Konkona looks so beautiful and gorgeous. But I think this film plot is too lose and have a man-made (unacceptable) happy ending. Anyway the performances are very nice from three leading ladies through the film but the I don't like the ending . But this film is real Bollywood Commercial style and I hope this will done well at boxoffice. Anyway you should go and watch this film for the performances and Konkona new look.

Konkona's Godrej Lifespace

Konkona Sen Sharma launched Godrej's 50th Lifespace retail store. It's all about breathing life into home and office spaces. IndiaFM brings you an exclusive look of the store and also Konkona's memories of using Godrej and also talks about its durability and reputation. She also talks about her forthcoming release Laaga Chunari Mein Daag.Take a Look, from !Konkona looks so beautiful !

Laaga Chunari ..... remake ?

Pradeep Sarkar's "Laaga Chunari Meing Daag" is rumoured the remade of K Balachander's 1977 film, "Aaina", starring Rajesh Khanna and Mumtaz since the first trailer is released.This film is about a small town girl became prostitute to feed her big family and the director Sarkar claimed that he had not even watched the film.

But now another rumour comes out ! "Laaga Chunari..." closer resemblance to the Marathi film, Doghi (1995). Directed by Sumitra Bhave and Sunil Sukhtankar, the film stars Renuka Daftadar (playing Rani's character) and Sonali Kulkarni (playing Konkona's character). Doghi, meanwhile, is about two sisters. The elder sister takes to the streets in order to protect her younger sibling, and also care of her family. For this fact Pradeep's answer is interesting -
"I won’t say it is based, but it’s kind of inspired, though I haven’t seen the film, but I don’t think we have many similarities. I have admitted that it’s been inspired by the Marathi film, but not Aaina ."
Anyway the rumours come out in film industry is not a strange condition. But time to consider is not much far ! This Friday ! You go watch and enjoy the talented acting of Konkona, Rani and Jaya from "Laaga Chunari...."!

"I'm glad Vidya pulled out" :Konkona

Another interesting interview on Konkona for her comming release "Laaga Chunari Meing Daag" ! Interview facous on the fact Konkona was not the first choice for the role of Chukti in Laaga Chunari....

“Yes, I know Vidya (Balan) was supposed to do it, and she pulled out. To be frank, I’m glad she did, because I got to do a great role,”
For this statement I feel that she definitely get a good role in this movie. For me I personally love Vidya for her innocent beauty and cute face. But for performance Konkona is my favourite any way Mr. Sarkar will not get any regard for replacing Konkona to his muse Vidya !

Next week will release the much awaited "Laaga Chunari Mein Daag" , But I am a bit afraid for the next big release "Bhool Bhuliyaa" ! And I need to worried that will Konkona get a good enough role for her talent. Anyway the time for decide is not too long and I think both film done well (I love Vidya Also ! )and Konkona have a god comparable role with Rani and may even get some awards for this movie.Hopefully !

Guest Post : My Feeling on a Song making as a Buddhist

I feel a bit unpleasant for the promos of "Bhool Bhulaiya" title song . The gypsy half-naked girls dance on the body of Buddha Statue ! I think this is too rude and no respect for Buddhist especially for this scene. We all have great respect to our respect Gods .in all religions . This song designer is really want to have so much fun and he even cannot take note on what he is doing .Surely he is not Buddhist but this is religious insult. I think Mr.Priyadarshan should take care for this religious matter even he want this Hindi Horror Movie . The Ghosts , Hindu, psychiatrist and Buddha has no connection and I cannot catch up your Idea of creating this song.

''Konkona and Irrfan will definitely be in "Life in a... Metro" ,sequel'' : Anurag Basu

This is the season of sequel in the cinemas. For now Anurag Basu plans the sequel to his super hit movie "Life in a Metro". We all have amazing watching time of Metro for all : about the actors , music and script. And Konkon and Irrfan pair had already the most favourite part of the film.
India Time article about this sequel. Mr. Basu says that -
"When I made Metro, the sequel to it was at the back of my mind. In fact, when I wrote the script, I wrote so much that it could have easily gone into two films. I ended up using only 25 per cent of it in Metro — the remaining was for the sequel. Now I’m improvising on it. Moreover Metro is not just a happening city; it’s also a showcase for changing lifestyles."

Another interesting question is "The original starred Shiney Ahuja, Shilpa Shetty, Kay Kay Menon, Kangna Ranaut, Sharman Joshi, Konkona Sen Sharma and Irrfan Khan; will he retain the same cast in the sequel?"
Mr. Basu: “I’m not sure about the rest, but Irrfan and Konkona will definitely be there. And I’m also going to use another band in this movie since the concept was such a hit in the original,”
Anyway if this film come, we will wait it with much hope and we will see what happen to the love marriage couple.
