Thanks Amanada for the review.

I've got this one, and honestly, I think I ran through it once. But, I'm not a big fan of their stuff period. Of the stuff I've come across on Bhangra (yes, you spelled it right!) Sarina Jain is still the standard. However, Meera's stuff is pretty good as well.

Gotcha on the Dhol though - no "e". LOL

Lady D - it takes a LOOOONG time for the calves to like Bhangra. Sometimes, mine still don't! LOL

Yeah, I wasn't real impressed with it either, but I thought it was just because it was tough on me from a cardio stand point
my calves didn't like it much either

I rented this, and I have to say I was disappointed.

It's a workout dvd based on Bhangra moves. Did I spell that right? Anyway, I'd watched all the Sarina Jain dvds, so I was looking for something different.

As a workout, it's pretty good. Kept my heart rate up.

BUT

The instruction is minimal. If you already know a lot about bhangra, I think you'd be okay, but I don't and I was lost on some of the movements. You'd almost have to stop the dvd and try to figure out what they were doing on your own, and that sort of defeats the purpose of a workout dvd. Some of the movements were really cute too!

The WORST part was the music -- it skipped and jumped around so you couldn't keep a steady beat.

Sarina Jain's dvds have a continuous Dhole (spelling?) beat that loops over and over again. On this DVD, it's like they TRIED to do that, but the editing wasn't done very well so it skips around. If you're not looking directly at the TV you end up off the beat. That REALLY annoys me.

Like the twins' other dvds, there is a lot of hopping around, so if you have bad ankles this is NOT the dvd for you.
