Ooooooh Khajooor! Suroor

Himesh Reshamiya – I hate this moron of a singer! Initially, the songs were catchy tunes, which I secretly used to hum! Then, the Indian media and TV viewers were faced with an onslaught of videos with skimpy clad babes holding a guitar [Note: NOT PLAYING IT with any credibility] and lasvisciously swaying [Not complaining there] to the songs of a denim jacket clad guy, wearing a cap, holding a mic and singing away to glory with his nose! Yes, I am talking about Himesh Reshamiya – the Suroor dude! Before I get started on his music sense, which I have come to detest, yet hum at times, lemme tell you about the "man of the moment"!

I HATE his songs! Still, I find him @ Numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 of the Top 10! The worst part, all the 5 songs sound the same! And 2 amongst the 5 ARE the same songs, but with different videos and probably a tweaked output! I mean this guy is learning and aping the model of Device drivers for graphics cards and firmware of Sony Ericsson! Release very similar stuff within such a short span of time and earn TONS of money, whilst doing that!

Despondent, I agree! Unfortunately, thousands of Indians don't!! They love his nasal voice! Girls dig his denim jacket and cap clad head! Teri Jigar mein… whatever dude!

However, one thing I do appreciate in this guy is the fact that he is capitalizing on the fact that people are buying his crap and are ready to pay him to drawl! And of course, he's got the star cast in his videos for people to watch the videos! Actually, if you look at it, Tanushree Dutta, Deepika Padukone, Isha Kopikkar, some babe in that Suroor video, Katrina Kaif, Udita Goswami… name it and it most probably is there! Hmmm… Interesting Khajoooor ;-)!

But, until then, I am going to hear Tera Tera Teraaaa Suroooorr…. on tons of cellphones!!

  1. hehe..true…i think the “Aashiq Banaya” propelled him into a superfast-song-propeller that won’t stop! I think its some record having max. songs/videos released in a month! And its a tuff finding out whether the actual video we watch on tv is a new song or its so DAMN F***IN SIMILAR!!! same formulae of a sad himesh+sad gal+ lyrics in an infinite loop!!! his voice is whats d saving grace if any…i think this Himesh-craze will come to a quick end..but until end..i think we’ll have to listen to him sayin
    “Samjhona..Mujko Samjhona!!!!”

  2. Heehee!! Yeah man! That guy can get on your nerves, but me and my roomies have developed an acute sense of defense for his songs! We just start singing “ooooooohhhh” nasally everytime one of his songs start!! ;-)! Helps quite a bit!!

    Ya should try it :-D!! Although, initially people might think that you practically adore this guy! ;-)! But, honestly it’s worth it :-D!

    Dude, btw your ambigrams are quite cool :-)!

  3. Pangs! I think, you didn’t get the whole point, even you don’t know why ppl like him and you hate him.
    You know, what ppl like is always something different and this is what this HR is serving them.Soon it was a huge hit. It was ok but for some days. Then the song was on evry shop, galli/muhhala, all the music channels. And this is what making it so irritating. Any song, however so good, ya can’t hear repeatatively. Ultimately you will lack variety and that is happening v. fast with this guy Called HR which is producing similar kinda songs.
    And for the same reason i hate this guy and like as well at the same time

  4. Khajoor Suroor! LMAO.
    I was laughing out loud. It was good that everyone else was laughing at something else, or would have been caught out! 😀

    First song was okay. second was tolerable. 3rd was stretching it, and the later ones are just pissin me off.

  5. @ Amresh: The point is that I wasn’t talking about why people like him or not!! It’s only about why I hate him! Love-hate relationships are so common!

    Any song, however so good, ya can’t hear repeatatively. Ultimately you will lack variety and that is happening v. fast with this guy Called HR which is producing similar kinda songs.

    I disagree with you when you say that a song that is good, will lose its charm when you hear it repetitively! It’s just not true! E.g. I have been listening to “Another Brick in the Wall”, “Enter Sandman”, or for that matter a ton of ‘Tallica titles, and a lot more for about 3 years now, and I still DO NOT hate ’em!
    That’s what makes a classic I guess, from just another song :-)!

    @ sukhi: You caught the words off my mouth man! I was planning on an addendum to the post saying that the moron is planning to ape Adnan Sami on the babe front! :-D!! But, hey, “oooooooooooo….” ya get what I mean don’t ya ;-)!

  6. well, at least Adnan’s videos gave us enuf lookie’s at the chicks, and not a looky at a bearded statue!

    yeah. “ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwww!”
