(Club Vivid Premiere): Dynamite  
Title: Dynamite
Artist: Taio Cruz
Source: Dhoom:2
Summary: Dance gods Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan invite you to 'light it up'.
Thanks to: [personal profile] kuwdora for cheerleading as epic as the basketball... and generally inspiring and nursing it into existence
Notes: Er, no explanation really possible, but here goes anyway: dancing, rollerblading, jewel theft, paragliding, sandsurfing, flying motorcycle, exploding helicopter, epic basketball-in-rain madness? In Rio. With star-crossed lovers and a slash interlude. There, I think that was reasonably accurate.

This was so much fun. Aishwarya Rai is beautiful!

She's stunning, isn't she!? I will never not be mesmerised. Glad you enjoyed it!

Wow, I loved how kinetic and fun that was! Definitely made me want to dance along.

The perfect ClubVivid Vid! This is so dynamic and fun, and those too are just such eye-candy.

Yeah, eye-candy-arama! :) (though this vid is the one reason I'm glad I wasn't at VVC this year! I would have been throwing up from nerves at it playing at CVV!)

This movie was pure ridiculous fun, and this vid not only caught that, but distilled it into a perfect package of sheer pretty and awesome. I LOVE it!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Aishwarya Raibop_radar on August 16th, 2011 12:31 am (UTC)
HEE! So glad you think so! The thing I love about this movie is how it just REALLY GOES THERE. You get the feeling that there was nothing considered TOO MUCH in the writer's room. ;)

That was amazing! Those actors are SO pretty, wow.

God, yeah, they're seriously on another level of beauty...

Oh, hee, thanks! Ahaha, have fun! (It's REALLY SILLY.)

This vid is so much bouncy fun! And literally! You have car chases and rollerblades and busses and dancing. It's so entertaining! I'm not sure if the film could be as good as this vid is, but this vid makes me want to watch the movie.

TY!!! :) It's an excellent 'bad movie night' movie. ;) It's fearlessly over the top.
brokenmnemonic: Bones - Amusedbrokenmnemonic on August 18th, 2011 06:07 pm (UTC)
Hee, I may have to acquire a copy of this movie for my next bad movie day - I had one last weekend with a couple of friends, and if there's been one, there can be more, yes? :D Although, can any movie with Aishwarya in be a bad movie? ;)
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Aishwarya Raibop_radar on August 18th, 2011 09:17 pm (UTC)
Oh, it can! specifically I've seen a Western historical epic with her as an action hero in it, something to do with Arthur... and/or Rome ... (you can tell just how good the movie was by how clearly I remember the plot!) which also, surreally featured Colin Firth (being Colin Firth) and a scene in which Ben Kingsley was dangled upside down. It sounds like bad movie gold but was actually just ... dull.

For bad movies, I do HIGHLY recommend 'Westender' though. The State Board of Oregon know what they're doing... :p Check out the IMDB comments on that baby... truly the most excruciating 90 minutes you'll ever sit through. :p (I may have actually secretly vidded it if you want proof.)

This was SO MUCH FUN to dance to! :D
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Yay!bop_radar on August 16th, 2011 12:34 am (UTC)
Eee! A PERSON THAT WAS THERE! ::pounces:: So it really actually played? :p There's some part of me that still does not believe that!

Gah, so glad I wasn't there, I'd have been crippled with nerves. But YAYYY SOMEONE DANCED!!!!!!!
Jayne L.: dwwavesserrico on August 16th, 2011 12:41 am (UTC)
Of course I danced! Along with everyone else! Because it was DANCEABLE! *g*

This vid is fucking AWESOME. I loved it from start to finish!

Ohh, so glad you did!! :D I had a burning desire to share the madness (and hotness)... ;)
minnowminnow1212 on August 17th, 2011 01:10 am (UTC)
I was so thrilled when this started playing and I was like, "Wait, is that? Yes! Hrithik Roshan! Dhoom 2! Yay!" This was wonderful to dance to, and I loved how the internal movements on the clip really worked with the music.

My favorite moments on rewatch:

--The "crew-crew-crew-crew" bit at 1:20

--the lfire limbo line on "light it up" at 2 minutes

--the sequence of clips on the "hands up in the air" part at 3 minutes in, the kick landing on the "hey-oh" lyric

Yays!! I knew someone had to know it. :D That makes me so happy to think someone had this experience of it... I had to overcome a lot of 'this is very leftfield for Vividcon' feelings making it.

The "crew-crew-crew-crew" bit at 1:20
I have to admit that doing that sequence was a prime motivator for me making this vid. ;)

It was superfun to play with though and I do hope to vid Hrithik again some time! ;)
Dara Q: Audreydaraq on August 17th, 2011 02:05 pm (UTC)
This is amazing!! No one dances like Hrithik and Ash is truly the most gorgeous woman in the world. You did a fantastic job with your vid, thank you for sharing it!
(Anonymous) on August 20th, 2011 02:37 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm so glad you liked it so much. Yes, Hrithik is in a league of his own... and Ash's beauty is astounding.

Dude, PURE JOY. I really need to be watching more Bollywood and this seems an excellent place to start!

Great song, and fantastic use of motion. I reiterate: GLEE!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Bellydancebop_radar on August 21st, 2011 04:25 am (UTC)

Oh, the movie is TOTAL CRACK. I feel bad in a way because not all Bollywood is crack (I SWEAR!)--some of it is serious and beautiful... but on the other hand? GOD, they do crack SO SHAMELESSLY WELL.
Becka: 30 rock liz lemon omgyaybeccatoria on August 21st, 2011 09:41 pm (UTC)
HI BOP!! :)

Yeah, I haven't watched anywhere near as much Bollywood as I'd like to because, well, it doesn't come up that much and my local cinema has stopped showing as much, but I have seen some of it including some of the more serious stuff so I know it's not all crack - my local cinema used to show quite a lot of it and we'd sometimes go when there was nothing else on that we particularly wanted to see. Once they lied to us about there being subtitles (it was actually Tamilwood) so that was fun (and yes, in that case, crack) and surprisingly comprehensible (and featured a villain who cooked people in a giant microwave while microwaving chicken in an evil day spa, no really). Also I once watched Love Story 2050 (hell I have it on DVD), which was awesome, but not in any way good, whereas this movie looks like it might be a higher class of crack. ;)

Oh no! Tamilwoood with no titles. EEEK! But yeah... the cracky ones are often easy to understand. :D I reckon Dhoom could be followed without titles, especially since they like to say all the important lines in English, or Hinglish at least. :p

Probably my favourite high class crack Bollywood film is 'Om Shanti Om' which is a deliberate parody of the industry, including Shahrukh Khan parodying himself. It's funnier if you've seen his big movies, and know that there's a new trend in superhero Bollywood, but even without that it is pretty damn funny (while still totally EPICLY EARNEST in its own way! as is fitting!).

There's not an iota of irony in the Dhoom franchise though. ;) And yeah, the crack is MIGHTY.

You could be making excellent action movie trailers :) :) :)

Yeah, right! :p

The Dhoom effects team did all the work for me with that neon. ;) ;) ;)
ifreet: Whee! Singing in the Rainifreet on September 1st, 2011 04:11 am (UTC)
A vid for Dhoom 2! And it's adorable! The great timing and just all around technical skill make it seem seamless, as though the movie were meant to be a music video from the start. And I love that the arch-nemesis detective gets his own chorus.
sad discoshati on January 14th, 2013 12:17 am (UTC)
I saw this at Club Vivid and it was PERFECT for dancing and I was so excited that there was Hrithik Roshan. :D :D :D
