Folks, if you like/dislike my questions, please make your approval/disapproval known via the checkboxes at the bottom of the post!
Today’s question is slightly difficult. These are three different clips. Connect them to one single entity on Indian reality television.
1. This is a very specific rendition of the patriotic classic Saare Jahan Se Achchha… I find it renamed as Spirit of Freedom and included in a compilation called Bollywood Dream Themes. Arbit funda: The voice that you hear towards the end, that says “Rashtra Salute! Salaami Degi!…” and all, actually belongs to Danny Dengzongpa, and he said these words in one of the last scenes of 1942: A Love Story.
2. This is a remix of the piece Bombay Theme from the Hindi film Bombay. Original music by AR Rahman, remix by DJ Suketu.
3. This is the song Navras from Matrix Revolutions, and plays when the end credits of the film are rolling. surprisingly, the lyrics are in Sanskrit, beginning with Asato ma sadgamaya…
Connect these three. It’s a very specific connect.
Note: I could have added Jai Ho from Slumdog Millionaire and Jai Jai Maataram from the album Vande Maataram 2, among others, to this list, but I desisted.
Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!
I kept this one open for three whole days, and yet, only one response!
Looks like this was a total bouncer! The answer, obviously is Prince Dance Group, the winners of the first season of India’s Got Talent. You can find more about them here.
Also, go to YouTube and search for them, and you will find that these are the three songs they danced to during their performances on the show itself. They have performed many other shows since, and there they have used songs like Jai Ho from Slumdog Millionaire and Jai Jai Maataram from the album Vande Maataram 2.
