This Parody Of Bollywood ‘Party Songs’ Is Too Good, Yaar

Any behemoth industry has its lazy side. In Bollywood, this has to be the “party song,” a seemingly requisite scene in a certain kind of blockbuster, governed by a crude formula that audiences still, somehow, go wild for.  

There’s so much to satirize about the genre, from the requisite objectification of women (water must always meet clothing) to the reliable co-opting of black culture — with an always sub par rap interlude, à la Rebecca Black’s “Friday,” that belies the culture’s prejudices (against dark skin, and African-origin people, subservient in the insidious hierarchy that still lingers from colonial times).

Thankfully, India finally has satirists up to the task. In the long but worth it video above, the popular sketch comedy troupe All India Bakchod teams up with scene-stealer Irfan Khan  – you know his scene thefts from “Namesake,” “Life Of Pi,” and “Jurassic Park” — for a parody that perfectly skewers Bollywood’s particular hypocrisies.

Based on “Party All Night,” a hit song from 2013, the satiric version calls out everything from censor boards (Bottles! Girls! Because this is a song, censors will let it go!) to cynical producers who know the music-leading structure of the industry means they can make a hefty salary off a movie with a single catchy song and little else of note. Even for those unfamiliar with Bollywood, the tropes should feel relevant, given that every American party anthem music video engages in parallel ones.

As a side benefit, it’s fun to see Khan — a hidden gem in Bollywood’s thicket of Ken-doll clones — playing diva, in the leisurely intro. “I don’t want to brag about myself, but I … can … do … anything.”

Respectfully requesting a parody of Indian cable news next.

Busted in Bollywood

Busted in Bollywood


Shari Jones needs to get a life. Preferably someone else’s. Single, homeless and jobless, Indo-American Shari agrees to her best friend’s whacky scheme: travel to Mumbai, pose as Amrita, and ditch the fiance her traditional Indian parents have chosen. Simple. Until she’s mistaken for a famous Bollywood actress, stalked by a Lone Ranger wannabe, courted by an English lord, and busted by the blackmailing fiance. Life is less complicated in New York. Or so she thinks, until the entourage of crazies follows her to the Big Apple and that’s when the fun really begins. Shari deals with a blossoming romance, an addiction to Indian food and her first movie role, while secretly craving another trip to the mystical land responsible for sparking her new lease on life. Returning to her Indian birthplace, she has an epiphany. Maybe the happily-ever-after of her dreams isn’t so far away?
