Biba is a Mello mashup of Shah Rukh Khan videos like no other!
By Bryan Durham - February 15, 2019
And then some! How many did you find?
We’ll be the first to admit that we were quite underwhelmed by the audio of Biba, composed by Pritam, produced by Marshmello and sung by Shirley Set, Pardeep Singh Sran and Dev Negi. But we’re quite kicked about the just-released song’s video. All is forgiven!
It’s got that larger-than-life feel that one only expects from a Bollywood outing. Most Marshmello videos tend to be intimate, relatable experiences. That meeting point comes out beautifully despite the conflict between the two worlds.
Yes, our favourite buckethead is everywhere in this video, but the influence is so clearly (and heavily) Shah Rukh Khan.
The opening few seconds reference Om Shanti Om, quickly moving on to what seems like a scene straight out of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi that goes on to reference SRK’s most recognisable dance moves from films as diverse as Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Devdas, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Dil Se and more.
When Shirley Setia’s portion starts, it’s like an immediate homage to moves from DDLJ, Mohabbatein, Kaho Na Pyaar Hai (?), Pratigya and Ready.
One thing you don’t see coming, though is the shooting at Liberty Cinema (Darshan Raval’s Do Din, anyone?) Cause we sure as hell don’t remember any Shah Rukh video being shot at the iconic location.
Even the KKHH dance moves have the very distinct styling of U-Turn’s Karma Theme.
