Blast from the Past - Bindu Re Bindu Remix.

I usually don't give two hoots about remixes. They came in the early 2000s. They were a rage. Some were good. Most were mediocre fast-paced rehashes of good Hindi/Bollywood songs. Good thing we are through them now. This one here though, stood out. Might have to do something with Kunal Ganjawala's raspy voice. Maybe it's just the music video. This cute little video was played all the time on MTV. Even Channel V if you watched it.

Let's come down to the video, one thing that always helps popular music in well, becoming popular. This thing here was created by the good people of Studio Eeksaurus. They were the pioneers of animation in India. Remember the Amazon Battery's Last Long, Really Long video? It was also them. In fact, come up with any good animated commercials/videos in the past decade and chances are they came from Studio Eeksaurus.

I used to love this video while growing up. It looked quite groundbreaking in 2003 and a good 11 years later, I find it a little disturbing what with a creep stalker going after a girl and a cheeky upskirt shot thrown in for good measure. Guess you can get away with a lot of stuff when it's shown in animation.

Anywho, watch the video and take a trip down your 90s memory lane. Enjoy.
