YouTube: "Indian Beatles"

via Boing Boing

From 1965, a two minute clip from Jaanwar, featuring four musicians in Beatles suits, singing a Hindi cover/rip off of "I Want to Hold Your Hand."

The comments note the title in Hindi is "Tumse Hai Dil Ko," but most other references to this cover song (on sites that cover either the Beatles, cover songs, or that track Indian film music plagiarism) call it "Dekho ab to."

Must be seen! Reasons:
'I wanna hold your hand' is not translated as such. (Did not pass censors?)
Man in Colonel Sanders outfit. (Indian Elvis?)
Indian Beatles clearly not playing guitar.
Dancing women look so very chaste while they wiggle and jiggle.
