What’s a Bollywood movie without some singing and dancing? A Bollywood movie without singing and dancing, kind of feels incomplete. While some films stay on in our minds, it’s some songs and some signature dance moves from the films, that become etched in our minds forever.
These signature moves become a part of every wedding, and every happy get together with family and friends. We’ve listed some of the dance moves from recent Bollywood films that are endorsed by every chacha, chachi, mama, mami, bua, phupa, bhaiya, bhabi, munna, munni etc. etc., during weddings and family functions.
Varun Dhawan’s First Class Moves
In the recently released period drama, Kalank, Varun Dhawan showed us some really cool moves in the song First Class. The song was an introduction song for Varun’s character Zafar. Like always, Varun proved his dance skills and gave the audience a dance move to remember. First Class is a foot tapping number composed by Pritam and sung by Arijit Singh and Neeti Mohan. The dance was choreographed by Remo D’souza.
Zingaat Moves By Janhvi Kapoor And Ishaan Khattar
Zingaat from the Jahnvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khattar starrer is a part of almost every party. While the song and dance moves in Dhadak is very popular, it was the original Marathi song from the movie Sairaat from which Dhadak was adapted, that became immensely popular. The best part is the dance is that it’s a freestyle move which even non dancers like me, can easily pick up and go all wild!
Khalli Balli, When You Dance With Aggression
Ranveer Singh plays the evil Allaudin Khilji in Padmaavat. At an interview during the promotion of Padmaavat, Ranveer told us how traumatised he was after playing the character of Allaudin Khilji and he would not want to play such a character again as it left him completely drained. There are no signs of being drained in the way he dances to Khalli Balli. He does the entire dance in character, one can see the aggression and energy all throughout the dance. It is said that the dance steps were apparently inspired by American rock music legend, Jim Morrison.
Well we don’t know how far that is true but what we do know is that the dance moves will go down in history!
Pinga, A Twist To A Traditional Marathi Dance Form
The dance moves by Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukon in Pinga from the movie Bajirao Mastani is something many women have tried copying. Though the dance form is a traditional Marathi folk dance, choreographer Remo D’Souza has given a classical twist to it. Priyanka had some difficult but interesting moves in this one.
Ghoomar, All About Twirling And Flowing Dresses
Ghoomar is another traditional dance form, this dance form is performed by the women of the royal families in Rajasthan, besides being performed new brides when they are welcomed into their marital homes. The shoot of Padmaavat started with this song, it was the first sequence to be shot. The dance is not as easy as Deepika Padukone made it look, like the name suggests, Ghoomar literally means to twirl round and round. This dance involves some difficult moves, where one needs to twirl round and round in circles. Not a wise dance move to choose, if you don’t want to embarrass yourself by falling flat on your face!
Jag Ghoomeya, Bhai’s Very Own Style!
Jag Ghoomeya from Sultan has some dance moves which if practiced will surely lose those extra kilos! The dance move in Jag Ghoomeya is an unusual one. The song is picturised on Salman Khan, and he can be seen taking a turn, falling on the floor and doing thumkas while he’s lying down in the ground! Guess who thought of the step? Yes it was bhai himself. It’s ekdum bhai ishtyle and fun!
Hud Hud Dabangg, Making A Style Out Of Nothing At All
Bhai gave us another signature move in Dabangg. Only he can pull off a move that involves nothing but props like a shirt collar, pant pockets and the belt! Yes, all it took was bhai moving his belt up and down in this song, and that became a much loved dance move! Like the Air Supply song says, “Making love out of nothing at all,” we could say Bhai makes a signature dance move out of nothing at all!
This title track has always been an introductory song for Salman in his Dabangg franchise, but unlike its prequels, the song in the third franchise comes at a crucial juncture of the story and will also feature Sonakshi Sinha in it. Salman recently announced that filming on Hud Hud Dabangg, is complete. We will have to wait till December to see what new move bhai brings to the song in this one.
Badtameez Dil, No Badtameez Moves In This One
In Badtameez Dil from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Ranbir Kapoor’s energy levels are on an all time high! His dance moves were compared with Shammi Kapoor’s moves in the song Aaja Aaja and Baar Baar Dekho. While we do agree the energy was the same as his grand uncle’s, Ranbir brought his own unique style to the dance. The song is peppy and makes your ‘badtameez dil’ go all out and dance to it.
Though many new dance moves have been discovered and there will be many more to come, Madhuri Dixit’s moves as Mohini, in Ek Do Teen from Tezaab, and Chane Ke Khet, from Anjaam, will forever be loved by any generation. Madhuri’s moves made many hearts go ‘dhak dhak’ and still do even today.
Do we really need a special day to dance? Hell no! Just put on our dancing shoes and play these numbers and go all out!
