Classic Bollywood rain song

A fine example of a classic Bollywood rain song. For the uninitiated: until very recently, rain songs were the steamiest parts in Bollywood movies (closely followed by rape scenes, which were, strangely, very popular). Nowadays pretty much everything goes, but there was a time when the actors weren't allowed to kiss on-screen (scandal magazines filled the void of our imaginations), so they tried to do everything else to keep you interested. Fans of this song (featuring Amitabh Bachchan and the late Smita Patil) will religiously tell you that it's very romantic. The tune is catchy on my Hindi-tolerant ears, but in polite disagreement, I never can stop laughing at it. Go on, take a look. PS1- the guy who appears at the end of the song plays the owner of the hotel where the other two work. At the end of the movie, he turns out to be the long-lost brother of the tall guy. PS2- my wife tells me that this was once voted the sexiest Bollywood song ever. PS3- sorry if this post offends anybody.
