Having Paan From Muchhad Paanwala

vikas.kumar's picture

The video is about a very popular dessert/snack/mouth freshener in India called "Paan". Its been shot post midnight at the very famous "Muchhad Paan Wala" in Mumbai. The movie includes talk about Paan, about "Muchhad Paan Wala" and shows the recipe for something that we call "Masala Paan" in Mumbai. The song "Khaike" from the Bollywood film "DON" is synonimous with Paan. I've tried editing portions of the video to bits of the hugely popular number...(the Shah Rukh Khan version).

The shop is located on WARDEN ROAD (Near Kemp's Corner) in MUMBAI, INDIA. It's easy to get there as the locality is famous...and "Muchhad" itself is a landmark. Ironically, the "Yellow Pages" office (the "Inquiry" guys, who are supposed to provide us with addresses) on the same road, advertise their own location as being next to "Muchhad Paan Wala"!

India has a great tradition of pan .Muchad pan wala is one of the most humurous aspect of this culture. too funny...too entertaining...with nice editing! GREAT VIDEO!

thanks! yes, paan does make a unique mouth freshner...imagine putting in your mouth ingredients that include leaves, chuna(lime), gooey chutneys, paste from a tree's bark and other strange stuff...not eating, but chewing for a good 5-10 mins and all the while, spitting out a red liquid!!!

funny!!! nice use of the song...well edited...
vikas.kumar's picture
the song was the obvious choice. i only had to decide between the old and the new versions. thankfully, i managed to sync muchhad's movements with the song's rhythm (required crazy editing though!)

great...but bit long...well edited...all the best.
vikas.kumar's picture
thanks but i don't think the length is too long. infact, i had to edit out a lot of interesting facts on paan...will probably include them in another video.

vikas.kumar's picture
Thanks...there's a lot more to the History than what i could tell here...stuff like - Empress Noorjehan popularised paan eating for its use as a lipstick as "kattha" (an ingredient) made the lips red. More in the next vid on paan.

vikas.kumar's picture
"maa ke haath ka khana" you'll only get where mom is, but "muchhad ke haath ka paan" you can get anywhere! all you need to do is place an order on their site- www.paan.com.

Oh Mumbai has some of the best street food in all of India, actually in the world! Of course Bangkok is also an amazing place to eat and eat on the street.
vikas.kumar's picture
You got that bang on...North India has better FOOD, but when it comes to just STREET FOOD, no other place comes close to Mumbai.
