Full of groovy, cheesed-out Bollywood disco synthetics, Rupaye Dus Karod has it all: weird drum pad breakdowns, funky Shaft-esque horns, and a v v silky, sexy sax.
DJ RJ uses Bollywood songs to drive these remixes, and he does it damn tastefully. Anyone that mixes Nice & Wild’s Diamond Girl into a song is good in my book, but then taking it a step further and mixing it with Bollywood? It’s like mixing two of your most favorite foods together… think donuts and ice cream. Panties dropping just like raindrops (you feel so good upon my lips).
Remember when I reminded you how much Bollywood you’re missing in your life? International Tapes is now thrilled and a little turned on to bring you College Girl/Amiri Garibi, the double soundtrack for the eponymous Hindi films. That’s right, it’s a double penetration of Bollywood. The soundtrack, in all its tambourine-shaking, henna-tattooed-foot-stomping, Hindi-Hollywood glory, takes us through the stories of the films—maybe. Listening to it is a little bit like watching a telenovela: you don’t understand what the fuck is happening, except that the attractive heterosexual leads on the cover (or credits) are probably in love, and probably encounter some obstacles (strict Hindi fathers? Accidental pregnancies? A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate in the Indian version of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” only to be arrested on suspicion of cheating?), and probably overcome those obstacles to be together forever. Or at least one final dance number. You don’t understand what the fuck is happening, but you know you’re staying home on a Sunday night to watch it anyway, and you’ll totally cry all the way through it. That’s what College Girl is, but with the added plus of having a title that gives you all kind of awesome Google search results.

Yo check it so Kajal falls in love with this dude Ravi at a show, they totally bone and get married. Even though Ravi is a baller Indian pop star, they move into his family’s mansion together. Ravi’s cousin is a total asshole and kind of kills Ravi. Wandering and broken, Kajal bumps into Raja, who has the giant’s wallet (fuck ton of rupees). She eventually moves on and begins to fall for Raja, when all of the sudden Ravi comes back from the dead. Then Ravi’s cousin and weird uncle are pissed they didn’t finish the job, try to kill and do Kajal by strapping a bomb around her (totally Dudley Do-Right style). Ravi totally takes the bomb, kills himself for love, and Kajal+Raja do it into oblivion.
Imagine that story, for 2 and a half hours, with dance numbers. That’s what this is.
You can watch the whole thing on YouTube, everything I said is true.
