Localization of the french word "Cabaret" and South speak for the item numbers of the 70s and 80s -a heady combination of sequined costumes, atrocious dancing and thunder thighs all set to a background vaguely resembling Eeenglish musics

The greatest purveyor of the art was undoubtedly the inimitable Silk Smitha whose "cabre dance" became so popular that distributors were loathe to buy any movie without the requisite "Silk dance"

Market pressures forced the regular heroines to shed their inhibitions and perform their own item numbers and, paradoxically, killed the professional cabre dance..


The movie was so-so, but one cabre dance by Silk was total paisa vasool macha
