Goofs

The band in the "Jaan Pehechaan Ho" scene are obviously not playing the song: the horn players play when the horns aren't heard; the guitarists don't even pretend to play the right chords; an electric guitar is heard, yet the band "plays" acoustic guitars; and the band has no string section even though violins are heard.

The 60s were weird enough in America!
15 July 2003 | by bonelessmonkeySee all my reviews

About ten years ago, my brother and I were sick with the flu and surfing the endless satalite channels when we came across this movie and could not change the channel. We laughed all day and days to come: imitating the dance with the masked men and the lady in the obnoxious gold dress. And I was laughing again when I saw it again a few months ago in Ghost World. You think the abstract direction of the sixties was bazaare and silly- check out what was going on in India.
