The Pussycat Dolls' Video for "Jai Hao" — Love It or Leave It?

The Pussycat Dolls Cover Slumdog's "Jai Hao" — Love It or Leave It?

The Pussycat Dolls just released their video for their version of Slumdog Millionaire's "Jai Ho." The girls' remix is a little more up-tempo than the original, but it's pretty hard to improve on an Oscar-winning tune. So, tell what you think — love it or leave it?

wat I dont like in her dress is that its niether purely Indian nor American.The blouse and the long scarf of hers r Indian but the capris and the boots r totally western style....soemhow its doesn't lok good to me....and yes the original song tells about the story of the guy and why has she remixed and changed the whole meaning of the song

It was pretty catchy until I heard the misprunciation and I just can't listen to it anymore!!

Correction. Jai rhymes with "sly"

It would be better if they didn't mispronounce "Jai Ho". How utterly embarassing. Why didn't anyone catch it before they released the track and video. Jai rhymes with "sleigh" not "say". Idiots.

I don't see why they had to remake it.

I bought the song only because I love Slumdog Millionaire and and want AR Rahman to get the proceeds he deserves (I only with there was a way to give the money to JUST him and NOT PCD). He is a great composer/musician and I am very glad he won the Oscars for this score . . . That said, I cringe whenever I hear it pronounced "Jay Ho". If not only for the fact that you can hear how it should be pronounced, it is even spelled that way (Jai) and dude, I can even pronounce it and I am horrible at other languages. To me, pronouncing it correctly is just a respect thing. **Rant ended** ^_^

There is no need for this. Skimpy outfits, why.

I didn't like the original song to begin with, but once you add the Pussycat Dolls to the equation...I HATE IT.

PCD are trash. Much say? The only song that appeal to me from them is "I Hate This Part" because it's soo different from what the usually sing.

Never heard the original (guess it is in the movie) or seen the movie, so I have no idea if I like it better or not.

Is it even Pussycat Dolls anymore? It should just be called Nicole and the Other Dolls. This song just got downgraded because of them - oh her!

I like the song....I don't like their outfits...and it bugs me everytime I hear Nicole say "jay - ho" a previous poster mentioned - can't she hear the other singer (AR Rahman)? I mean - it's the only hindi phrase in the song...and its the title of the song - surely she could have learned to pronounce it correctly! Oh - also - don't really like the dancing with the exaggerated "indian" finger movements - its so stereotypical and does not look at all graceful...especially mixed in with all their jumping up and down! That said...I'm still downloading the song...I don't know what's wrong with me - it's hooked me in!

I do not like PCD at all. They are too tacky.

I agree with La Tua Cantane and Frida83 - everyone is on the Slumdog train right now, and the Pussycat Dolls' performance cheapened the song. They are not pronouncing it correctly and they are dressed very trashy (very un-Indian like). For the longest time people thought Bollywood was silly or weird, but now, all of a sudden, people are on the bandwagon b/se it's cool.

I agree with you Frida83. I mean first of all it is kind of annoying how she is not pronouncing it correctly. And secondly, I like the original because it is authentic. I don't see why there was a need to Americanize it. I saw them perform on Live with Jimmy Fallon and the outfits baffled me; yes the fabric was Indian looking but the fact that they were barely covered up at all completely takes away from it and sort of clashes with the whole "Indian theme"

I agree PensaGrey, why does everything have to be reworked and redone for American audiences. Can't America appreciate foreign culture and art/music/movies? I recently heard that they were going to do a new american version of a really popular swedish film that came out last year, what's that about? Do you guys have to have everything in your own language or what?

I really like this song from the movie so I don't mind hearing it around again!

Isn't it "Jai Ho"? How come it's spelled 2 different ways on this post? I saw this on Perez Hilton, and he says she's not pronouncing it correctly (which is true, and funny she can hear the other singer), and they didn't include the other PCD members when it said "feat." It said only Nicole. Oh, I also don't like this version, lol.... which was my main point =D
