The ‘Jai Ho’ Dance

First of all, watch this video.

It is the end sequence from the movie Slumdog Millionaire.

If you haven’t watched this movie yet, you must absolutely go and do so because it didn’t win Oscar for Best Picture for nothing. The ending credits of the movie is a stereotypical Bollywood dance to a Hindi song called ‘Jai Ho’,  which has unexpectedly become so popular even The Pussycat Dolls are doing a cover version for it.

And then of course, there’s the numerous imitations on the Internet.

I don’t get Bollywood dances.

They said doing the Bollywood dance is like one hand screwing the light bulb, another hand patting the dog. But watching the video, I think it’s more like trying to learn HOW TO WASH WINDOWS.


AD: Imagine if you’re out weekend shopping, then suddenly two huge gangs of people armed with fluffy pillows suddenly charge against each other and engage in an impromptu pillow fight right in the middle of the crowd, in full view of everyone. From the crazy ass people behind KL Freeze and Read While Waiting, Zain and Corntoz invite you to take part in the KL’s Biggest Pillow Fight tomorrow.

The fight is on 4pm, 4/4 at 2nd floor, The Curve shopping mall. Bring your pillow.

  13. That is really lame of u Kenny, but I must say its a funny parody!
    Anyway I love the movie Slumdog… The music and the characters in the movie are spendid..

  14. OMG Kenny,
    I almost fell off my chair while watching. Mum and I couldn’t stop laughing at your butt shaking moments…
    Btw, did u put on anymore weight ah? U looked kinda round u know?

  15. hehehe… do you need some practise… i have so many windows and sliding door in my condo that need some clean…
    Win-Win… my windows and sliding door got cleaned and you could practice your moves … hehehe :p

  16. jokes aside, I feel that Slumdog’s soundtrack is rather good, esp the opening track (when the boys were chased by police – heart-thumping tune!, MIA’s Paper Plane, and of course Jai Ho at the end.
    untypical lah … for a Hindi movie with NO rolling on grasses/hiding behind coconut trees/fake fights with overblown sound effects.
    no wonder Best Pict.

  17. YOu’ve got guts Kenny Boy. I would have prefered to see you do that without the shirt for more punch! Your torso would be the talk of the month!

  18. hahahaha…. please do not dance in public like this! You made me laugh rollin on the floor. But you lighten up my sunday emo. 😀 muah

  19. OMG. How can you manage to not laugh when you are dancing while recording that?
    So damm funny that I laugh for a full minute. Haha. GREAT one. Hahahaha.

  20. It’s been a long while I get a laugh at your entry…This entry reminded me of the KennySia blog I first visit 3 years ago…
    Come back…

  21. ahahaha!!! i adore indian culture n hv always dislike ppl who made fun of anything indian..but that was super hilarious! I hate u kenny! U’re so darn cute! wished my fiance had ur sense of humor..

  22. i don’t find it funny at all. You’re getting so lame, Kenny.
    You should revert back to your sensible style of just writing sensible posts and stop degrading yourself to a national joke.

  23. NONSENSE! I think there are a lot more things for you to do rather than doing all this meaningless blog…..just fuck off…you are just very far from there!!! Childish!

  24. hey kenny jz something to share witchu… the screwing lightbulb n patting dog move is more of a bhangra dance move…
    the bollywood dance… well dude… not all the steps look like washing windows man… jz d jai ho one… altho… if done properly shud not look like washing windows… the song is awesome but d cheograpy certainly lacks the normally tastefully done bolly style but then again… kekeke

  25. oh. my. god. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS!!!
    I’m a fitness dance instructor and I’ve been choreographing Jai Ho for an upcoming class and this just made me laugh till I almost cramped.
    Seriously. That made my morning. *chuckles*
