It is Samuel Beckett who said, “Dance first. Think later. It’s the natural order.” If you have seen the viral video of a little girl in Kerala dancing to the tunes of the “Oo Antava” song, the Irish literary great would make absolute sense.
The undated video shows a girl, not over 6 or 7 years of age, strutting her stuff as soon as her favourite song starts playing on the speakers. What’s more interesting is the fact that the girl is amongst the audience of some stage show seated in an open area. She clearly does not have much space to dance due to the closely aligned chairs, but she makes most of the limited area as soon as the song begins.
The viral video was shot by a fellow audience who was seated alongside the little dancer. It showed she enthusiastically starting to flex and stretch herself to the tunes of the popular Telugu number — eyes fixed towards the stage. Impressed by the little one’s brilliance, women around her started applauding. While some turned towards her ignoring the stage on the other side, another woman was seen vacating her chair and occupying another so that the dancer got more space — the video showed.
Towards the end of the video, the little girl calls it a day and decides to settle down on her mother’s lap. However, she is dragged back to the space between the chairs for round two by a teen girl, possibly her elder sister. The video ends as the two girls then start dancing together to the joy of the spectators.
“We don’t really need a stage, will rock in whatever little space there is…” a Facebook page that shared the awesome video rightly captioned it. Over 2.1 million people have so far seen the video.
The popular dance number sung by Indravathi Chauhan featuring Allu Arjun and Samantha Ruth Prabhu is from the 2021 Telugu blockbuster ‘Pushpa: The Rise.’ Ever since the song was released, “Oo Antava” has ruled Instagram reels and YouTube shorts.
