Grandma Kalyani Gets Her Groove On Watching The Movie Dabangg: Balika Vadu

After much deliberation Anandi (Pratyusha Banerjee) finally convinced her mother in law Kalyani Devi (Surekha Sikri) to agree to take all three of her daughters in law into town to enjoy the movie Jai Santoshi Maa. As it had to be of a religious nature in order for her to agree to go. And so upon their arrival to the theater Kalyani bows to the poster of Jai Santoshi Maa outside the theater and so they proceed inside. But unknown to them as they were walking inside the poster of the movie Jai Santoshi Maa was replaced by the movie poster Dabanng with actor Salmon Khan.

As they were seated Kalyani starts off complaining that she should have brought her own chair to sit in as she was miserably uncomfortable but she somehow manages and shares with her daughters in law that the last time she made it out to see a movie they didn’t have chairs but everyone used to bring blankets and sit on the floor comfortably.

~~~

~~~

Finally the action movie Dabanng has a violent start, as Officer Salmon Khan kicks in a huge metal door, bullets fly and the police fight with the criminals causing Kalyani to be disturbed by this kind of movie and so she asks Anandi “what is all of this and when will the movie Jai Santoshi Maa begin?” Anandi explains that it must be some sort of advertisement for another movie playing and that Jai Santoshi Maa will begin soon.

Anandi gets Kalyani to try out the popcorn and she likes it and so she eats it saying when in Rome do what the Romans do but as the popcorn is first served to them someone sitting behind them starts to complain because they cannot see the movie and Kalyani then turns around to see and questions who it is that’s impatient and doing the complaining because everybody knows everybody and she is a highly respected elder of their village.

The men in the theater go crazy with whistles and clapping when Salman Khan walked in on Rajo (Sonakshi Sinha) and Kalyani started to inquire again when will the movie start. Come to find out the movies change every Friday and Jai Santoshi Maa was gone and so Kalyani becomes upset and accuses Anandi of bringing them there so she could see the movie only she wanted to see. Kalyani grabs a hold of Anandi and all four of them stand up ready to leave as Kalyani threatens to teach Anandi a lesson once they get home. But in the middle of doing all of this a scene in the movie catches Kalyani’s attention. Officer Salmon Khan is doing what she considers a good deed by helping the poor and so she forgets about Anandi for a few minutes watching as she likes what she sees and so agrees to stay to watch more of the movie. She waves towards her daughters in law to continue to be seated.

Then here comes the really funny part….. As Malaika Arora’s scene comes to life and causes such an uproar in the movie theater upon her dancing to the amazing song “Munni Badnaam.” Kalyani is shocked and watches with amazement as Malaika swiftly moves her body in those seductive clothing. Her raunchiness and hip moving scene leaves Kalyani with her mouth wide open and she reacts by quickly telling her daughters in law to close their eyes, cover their faces and not to watch or hear any of this scene.

..munni badnaam hui darling tere liye!!!!

(…munni got defamed, for you my darling!!!!)

And so they go ahead and pretend to close their eyes and cover their faces as they are sitting there with one eye open and one closed, laughing among themselves all the while at how Kalyani is over reacting to this scene of the movie.

..munni badnaam hui darling tere liye!!!!

(…munni got defamed, for you my darling!!!!)

Then as the scene continues the police arrive with loud sirens and Kalyani yells out “now the police will come over and catch these girls, look at these girls! They are shameless.” Anandi, Gehna (Neha Marda) and Sumitra (Smita Bansal) are peeping up shamefacedly at the movie and cracking up at Kalyani the entire time.

..munni badnaam hui darling tere liye!!!!

(…munni got defamed, for you my darling!!!!)

Meanwhile all from the moment the scene and song started the majority of the men in the theater had gotten excited as they were all up on their feet, arms flinging in the air and dancing as some even took to dancing in the aisles with excitement and engagement.

munni ke gaal gulabi!!!

(Munni has rosy cheeks!!!)

It seems that the ones who remain in their seats are finding it hard to remain sitting without twisting, wiggling and whistling as it looks like there is a huge party is going on in the entire theater. LOL! All around Kalyani everyone has become riotous and is enjoying themselves to the max. As the movie continues and with the arrival of the police in the scene Kalyani yells out “the police will arrest them since they are wearing such clothes” as she looks over to check that her daughters in law are keeping their eyes closed as she told them to do. Kalyani further yells out “she will face the consequences of wearing such clothes and dancing!” Anandi, Gehna (Neha Marda) and Sumitra (Smita Bansal) are cracking up laughing at how involved Kalyani has become and they get excited as they watch her as it’s so funny to see Kalyani’s responses and reactions to this movie.

(and a royal walk)

Then Malaika Arora steps out wearing a different dress while still singing and dancing in the same scene and Kalyani is confused and cannot figure out how did she change her clothes so quickly. The excitement and beat of the music are very upbeat and fast and all over are sparkling colorful lights and everyone in this scene is wearing such beautiful and colorful clothes. I tell you Malaika sure knows how to captivate her audience with the movement of her swirling hips and body. And next thing you know Kalyani has let go as she is cracking up with laughter enjoying the movie, shaking her head and waving her hand to the music along with everyone else in the theater. Then lastly she yells out again the police officer is also dancing with her, this girl is surely going to spoil her name.”

Le zandu balm hui darling tere liye

(I turned into an ointment for you my darling)

Kalyani continues to wave her hands up in the air and shakes her head to the music and is seriously having a great time enjoying the movie along with everyone else in the theater while checking that her daughters-in-law are doing as she says, keeping their eyes closed as they pretend to do so.

..munni badnaam hui darling tere liye!!!!

(…munni got defamed, for you my darling!!!!)

What a funny and hilarious show this was for me to watch today. I tell you I was not feeling so good today, you know the aches and pains I was feeling and I think I am catching an after summer flu or something like that, coughing and what not but I could not help myself as I was cracking up so hard and laughing as Kalyani was practically getting her groove on and seeing how much her daughters in law was enjoying seeing her let her hair down for once. It was truly amazing to watch Kalyani as she became light and playful. This was such an enjoyable watch and so I think I will watch it twice.
