Magic In Tunes: 12/08/2015 - Calcutta Kiss

This song is from the 2015 Hindi mystery film Detective Byomkesh Baskshy! The movie was based on the fictional detective Byomkesh Bakshi created by the Bengali writer Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay who closesly resembles Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. The original book was made into TV series Byomkesh Bakshi in the 90s. So was very curious to see how the movie fared well. Did Sushant Singh Rajput fit into the large shoes left by Rajit Kapur and was the story here as mesmerizing as the tv were. I must say that although the plot was good, it would have been a definite hit if it had been paced a little faster, and a bit less of dialogues at the end. Oh a few friends also want to add that perhaps Sushant wasn’t the right person fr the role. But hey, he's hot looking so who cares. ;) All in all well taken movie with few flaws.

Here's a cabaret number titled Calcutta Kiss performed by Lauren Gottlieb, winner of international dance reality show So You Think You Can Dance. The song is pictured with mime actors around Lauren dressed in Byomkesh Bakshi costume (dhotis and jackets). Music composed and Lyrics penned by Madboy/Mink who are in reality the actors-singers-composers Imaad Shah (son of veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah) and Saba Azad. They recreated their song "Taste Your Kiss" from their album All Ball into Calcutta Kiss for this movie. The song refers to the kissing scene between Sushant's character and that of the actress-spy played by Swastika Mukherjee in the movie.

The song has a mix of disco, cabaret, swing, jazz and 70s funk with a little of electro mixed in it. A perfect number that you cant resist to tap your shoes or move your grooves along.


Lyrics in Romanized Hindi and English:

Do You Know What Time It Is; Don’t Know What Time It Is
Don’t Care What Time It Is; Coz It’s Time For Cal Calcutta Kiss
Do You Know What Time It Is; Don’t Know What Time It Is
Don’t Care What Time It Is; 'Coz It’s Time For Cal Calcutta Kiss

Woh Saala Bola Yeh Le Charas Ka Tola;
Chhod De Kurta-Jhola; Bhai Lagta Hai Tu Bhola
Aakhri Raat Tedhi Baat; Khaali Botal Tere Haath
Pa Ra Ra Ra.. Pa Ra Ra Ra

Feeling So Blue; Feeling So Blue And Yellow
Feeling So Blue; 'Coz I Lost My Time Teller

Do You Know What Time It Is; Don’t Know What Time It Is
Don’t Care What Time It Is; 'Coz It’s Time For Cal Calcutta Kiss
Do You Know What Time It Is; Don’t Know What Time It Is
Don’t Care What Time It Is; 'Coz It’s Time For Cal Calcutta Kiss

Mason Saab Kahaan Thhe Aap; Fizool Gaye Thhe Chaar Minar
Ulta Chasma Angoothe Chaar; Kyun Chalayi Vilayati Car
Reeta Thhi Badi Makkaar; Tina Thhi Chakku Ki Dhaar
Lut Gaye Pit Gaye Chhodo Yaar
Feeling So Blue; Feeling So Blue And Yellow
Feeling So Blue; 'Coz I Lost My Time Teller

Meri Jaan Tu Aasmaan Se Utarke Jaayega Kahaan
Meri Jaan Raat Ko Nikla Aawaara
Par Dhayein Dhayein Jab Goliyaan Chali; Darr Gaya Bechaara

Do You Know What Time It Is; Don’t Know What Time It Is
Don’t Care What Time It Is; 'Coz It’s Time For Cal Calcutta Kiss
Do You Know What Time It Is; Don’t Know What Time It Is
Don’t Care What Time It Is; 'Coz It’s Time For Cal Calcutta Kiss

And here's the audio of the original song Taste Your Kiss:

Lyrics in English:

Do You Know What Time It Is? Don't Know What Time It Is,
Don't Care What Time It Is, Cause I Know Its Time To Taste Your Kiss

Ah Now, Baby Now; Everybody's Down For This
Oh Now Baby Now; Everybody Likes To Kiss
Can You Hear The Trumpet Say?  Parapapapapa

Feelin So Blue; Feelin So Blue And Yellow
Feelin So Blue; Cause I Lost My Time Teller

Do You Know What Time It Is?; Don't Know What Time It Is,
Don't Care What Time It Is; But I Know Its Time To Taste Your Kiss

Nicholas Ray, Show Us The Way; Girls And Boys Come Out To Play
I'm A Tramp, You're A Stray ; I'm Plasticine, You're Made Of Clay
Late At Night, Take A Bite; Take A Bite Of Apple Pie
Cinnamon And Whiskey Never Lie

Feelin So Blue, Feelin So Blue And Yellow
Feelin So Blue, Cause I Lost My Time Teller
Do You Know What Time It Is? Don't Know What Time It Is?
Don't Care What Time It Is, But I Know Its Time To Taste Your Kiss

No One Knows What We Do, Youre A Beauty Baby It's True.
No One Knows, They Havent Got A Clue.
And I Wont Let The Cat Out Of The Bag, That's Not What I Do...
