NPR's Laura Sydell and I have something in common.

She too has an inexplicable love for "Ganpat" from Shootout at Lokhandwala. (I was obsessed with the song in the spring, evidenced here.) And now that I've watched the video again, let me note how much I enjoyed the beautifully floppy, casual, braggy choreography when the bhai dance together. (The rest of the picturization, including different people lip-synching for the same speaking voice, is forgettable.) I've forgotten if there was general consensus on the movie itself; I picked it up off the shelf at the video store yesterday but went for Shakespeare Wallah instead.
