Ullu Da Pattha

Ullu Da Pattha is an Urdu phrase that describes a special type of idiot who doesn’t know what’s good for him as well as others. It fits the opening sequence. I’m not giving it away, but Ali Hassan’s deportation hearings turn into a grand dance routine in true Bollywood fashion:

Unfortunately, that doesn’t come out very much in the video of the song.

The film was really silly, but it did make its point quite well.

BTW, I find it amusing that Ali Hassan has a poster for the film American History X on his wall and that he mimics Ed Norton’s pose. For those who don’t know the film, it’s about a former neo-nazi skinhead tries to prevent his younger brother from going down the same wrong path that he did.
