Hare Ram Hare Krishna : Dum Maro Dum Mit Jaaye Gum
Bollywood director Dev Anand explores a subject that was new to Hindi cinema in 1971’s Hare Rama Hare Krishna: hippies and drug culture. Despite being somewhat critical of the stoners in the film, director Anand depicts the “straights” in an even worse light: conventional, uptight and cruel.
Hare Rama Hare Krishna is the story of a young woman, portrayed by actress Zeenat Aman, who runs off to Katmandu to join a hippie commune. In this groovy clip, Zeenat lipsynchs “Dum Maro Dum” (take another puff) as a group of hippies follow her directions and start toking on some industrial-sized chillums.
