(By Mukta Singh) The item numbers are hot in demand in Bollywood these days. Every actress worth its name has either done it or dying to do one big ‘item number’. Katrina did it in ‘Agneepath’, Bipasha in ‘Jodi Breakers’ and the only actress to be mentioned twice in this league, Kareena Kapoor who charmed the audience in ‘Agent Vinod’ and recreated the magic in her upcoming movie ‘Heroine’.
Images of Kareena Kapoor swinging wildly on the beats of ‘Halkat Jawani’ have generated tremendous buzz for the movie but the question remains, which one of these item numbers will be the ‘Item Song of the Year’?
1- ‘Anagrkali Disco Chali’ from ‘Houseful 2’: This number is one of the most popular songs of the year. Malaika Arora Khan plays a ‘rebel’ of sorts in the song. With her dusky complexion, toned body and fabulous looks she can always only to kill more people with her lip biting ada. She has a unique style of dancing which brings life to most of her songs.
2-‘Chikni Chameli’ from ‘Agneepath’: When Katrina jhatkoz her kamar on screen with a little pahua tied to her waist she creates a riot on screen. The lyrics of this song beat even the wildest of fantasies. The attire which she wore in the song is traditional and it adds more sex appeal in the song. Hanging dangerously low on her waist and choli barely covering her assets Katrina stole the show in ‘Agneepath’. No wonder some commentators believe that Agneepath wouldn’t have got that kind of audience without this hot ‘Chameli’.
3-‘Dil Mera Muft Ka’ from ‘Agent Vinod’: The next item number on our list is ‘Dil Mera Muft Ka’ which couldn’t fire the box office collections as expected but it became a popular number of the movie. Mujra has been one of the oldest dance forms shown in our movies. Kareena Kapoor captured the spirit of Mujra for this number. But in spite of her efforts the song couldn’t leave a lasting impression on cine goers.
4-‘Bipasha Pyar Ki Bhasha’ from ‘Jodi Breakers’: Next in the list is one song which exploits actress Bipasha Basu’s sex appeal to the maximum. Even her name is not spared in the song. Bipasha proudly flaunts her body in a figure hugging dress and inviting people to learn ‘Pyar Ki Bhasha’. Who wouldn’t want to learn this language of love when it is coming straight from one of the sexy sirens of Bollywood. We could only say to Oh Bipasha ‘ Kudrat Ne Fursat Se Tujhe Tarasha’.
5-‘Halkat Jawani’ from ‘Heroine’: With ‘Heroine’ as one of the most eagerly awaited movies of the year of Kareena Kapoor is all set to rock the stage with her fiery item number. She looks stunning in the vibrant lehnga choli. . With those smouldering eyes, jhatkas and latkas and jaw dropping expressions she has managed to shake the world of item numbers in Bollywood. This item number has it all. From the lyrics to the sex appeal and the song instantly connects with the audience. Whether song will be the item number of the year 2012 is difficult to predict.
These five item songs are the most popular numbers of the year but we have nearly 100 days more to go in 2012. I have prepared the list well in advance but I am pretty much sure that these songs will be discussed by the movie lovers in December when they will be getting ready to welcome a new year.
