“Hum pagal nahin hain bhaiyya, humara dimag kharab hai,” that’s the point the two unhinged heroes of this Sajid Khan madcap caper keep making in this track. Set in a fictitious Lord Cray G. Mental Asylum in England, the song has Saif and Riteish as two nutjobs who keep insisting that they’re not mad, but only have a screw loose in their head.
In a self-referential joke Saif Ali Khan opens the song with, “Hum sirfire bigde hue nawab hain,” Riteish Deshmukh adds, “padh lo humein hum to khuli kitab hain”.
The mad-as-a-hatter duo is up to a lot of crazy antics in this song sung by Himesh Reshammiya. In one scene, when Ram Kapoor, the Hitlerean head of the loony bin, tells them to ‘Shut up!’, the Saif-Riteish duo actually pull their ‘shirts up’.
Wacky and crazy, ‘Hum Pagal Nahin Hai’ makes for fun watch.
