The Gutter’s own Beth Watkins joins Pitu Sultan and special guest Amrita from Khandaan Podcast to talk party songs on the Filmi Ladies Podcast! “”Party song” is a concept we all think we understand, but this decades-old building block of Hindi cinema deserves a closer look. The one and only Amrita from [Khandaan Podcast] is here to be the party police—in a GOOD way—and offers a great working definition that we expand across the years and look at songs from the 1960s through today. Her definition starts at 0:01:15 and it’s quite brilliant. Pitu adds more crucial ingredients starting at 0:03:20, including the importance of main character energy and playing musical instruments inappropriately. Beth wonders if really a party song really only requires someone to behave like Shammi Kapoor.”
