Fireworks in the sky, women are gyrating at decadent parties and the men sipping drinks wearing sharp suits and bow ties. Add to it weirdly rhyming, super cheesy dialogues, and this is what the Bollywood of the '60s looks like in the trailer of Himesh Reshammiya's latest film 'The Xpose'.
Here are some hilarious examples:
'The Xpose' is set in the '60s, and revolves around two filmstars who get caught up in a murder mystery.
This takes the concept of "audition" to a whole new level.
"Humari film mein kaam karenge?"
"Karunga na. Magar meri ek shart hai"
"Main villian se maar nahi khaunga. Woh kahawat suni hogi na, 'raja ka beta bhale hi nanga paida ho, woh hota toh rajkumar hi hai'"
That is definitely not how flirting works.
"Ravikumar ji, aap vishvamitra ho, toh main bhi menaka hoon. aapki tapasya bhang kar dungi."
"Ravikumar langot ka bohot pakka hai. Woh bistar par neend ke alava kuch nahi leta."
And Yo Yo Honey Singh says the following really fast.
"Tumne mera istemaal kiya, ya maine tumhara? Jitni publicity mili hai meri vajah se shukar manao, varna toh kutta bhi nahi poochta tum jaison ko iss sheher mein, jo kapdon se zyada mard badalti hain."
This definitely sounds threatening.
"Khoon kharabe se main bhi nahi darta."
"Tere shareer mein itna khoon nahi hoga, jitna Ravikumar ek baar mein moot deta hai."
We totally did not see this one coming.
"Yeh role pane ke liye mujhe kya karna hoga?"
"Na dance, na expression, na pose -- sirf expose, sirf expose"
Expose with an 'e', or with an 'x'?
Produced by Vipin Reshammiya and directed by Ananth Narayan Mahadevan, 'The Xpose' stars Himesh Reshammiya in the leading role and marks the debut of desi rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh. With Irrfan Khan, Zoya Afroz, Sonali Raut and Aadil Husain in supporting roles, the film revolves around two "superstars" played by Reshammiya and Singh after they are embroiled in the murder investigation of a sex symbol.
