Cha Cha Cha! Bahut Accha! Award: straight flush

Bollywood Deewana has just upped the ante on the requirements for a Cha Cha! Bahut Accha! winning entry, set and costume division:

This song shows remarkable commitment to theme. I'm trying to find something in here that was not inspired by playing cards, and I can't find anything. Even the rotating platforms in the middle remind me of poker chip caddies and the very mini mini-skirts of the tunics worn by the male royal figures on face cards. The music and actual choreography are kind of nondescript, but with a look like this, who cares!

This? Is amazing. Better than Toyland. "Dekho ji, dekho," is going to be playing in my head all day long now.

Bahut accha though I think Jeetu's jumping jacks would have fit this theme very well too.

The song ought to have been peppier. Though I like the clarification of 'her daddy leaving everything to him'.

And doesn't Leena Chandavarkar do the 'Begum' bit to perfection? She does love bossing her men around. :) As in 'Manchali'.
