La Isla Bonita
"La Isla Bonita" is a song by American singer Madonna from her third studio album True Blue. She and Patrick Leonard co-wrote and co-produced the song, Bruce Gaitsch provided additional songwriting. Sire Records released it as the album's final single on February 25, 1987; the instrumental version of the song was first offered to Michael Jackson before Madonna both accepted it and wrote the lyrics and melody. "La Isla Bonita" is noted for being the first Madonna song to contain Latino influences, with arrangements of Cuban drums and Spanish guitar, harmonicas and a mix of synthesized and real drumming. The lyrics of the song tell about a beautiful island and according to Madonna, was a tribute to the beauty of the Latinos. Following its release, "La Isla Bonita" received a positive reception from critics, it became Madonna's fourth number-one single in the United Kingdom, giving her the record for most number-one singles for a female artist. The track additionally topped the charts in Austria, France, Germany and Switzerland while reaching the top five in Belgium, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway and the United States.
In the accompanying music video, Madonna portrayed two opposite characters – a young, pious Catholic woman and a glamorous, passionate Latina. The Latin style and the flamenco red dress; the song is one of the most performed live songs by Madonna, appearing in six of her world tours, the most recent being on the Rebel Heart Tour. Madonna has performed the song in its Spanish form, sometimes with tribal or folk songs and remixes to accompany it; the song has been covered by various artists across the world, including Byanka, Elvy Sukaesih and Alizée. "La Isla Bonita" was written by Patrick Leonard and Bruce Gaitsch. The initial composition was first offered to Michael Jackson for his Bad album, but he turned it down. While working with Leonard on the True Blue album, Madonna accepted the track and wrote the lyrics and melody. "La Isla Bonita" was the first Madonna song to employ Spanish motifs, going so far as to include Spanish lyrics. According to her, "In everything I do with, if it's uptempo, there's a Latin rhythm or feeling to it.
It’s strange We both think that we were Latin in another life. She further explained: I love Spanish music. I love that group Gipsy Kings. They're so great, and I love Spanish singing. I'm influenced by Spanish music; when I lived in New York for so many years I was listening to salsa and merengue. I mean, that stuff was blaring out of everybody's radio on the street; the town of San Pedro in the island of Ambergris Caye, Belize is the inspiration behind the song. However, Madonna clarified to Rolling Stone: "I don't know where San Pedro is. At that point, I wasn't a person. I may have been on the way to the studio and seen an exit ramp for San Pedro." She described the song as her tribute to the "beauty and mystery of Latin American people". "La Isla Bonita" is a Hispanic styled pop song and is a characteristic work of the collaboration between Madonna and Leonard. The single mixes the sound of different instruments like Cuban drums and Spanish guitar and harmonicas and a mix of synthesized and real drumming.
The song is written in the key of C♯ minor and is set in the time signature of common time, moving at a moderate tempo of 95 beats per minute."La Isla Bonita" starts with a musical introduction performed on Bongos, before descending into synthesized beats from castanets. Madonna sings the chorus in the same G♯3 to C♯5 range. After the second chorus there is a Spanish guitar interlude whence Madonna's voice expands to F♯ minor as she sings "I want to be where the sun warms the sky" and comes down to the C♯ minor when she sings "loves a girl". There is another musical interlude with a harmonica and the song, after another chorus, ends with fading out and Madonna's voice uttering the words "El dijo que te ama". Paulinho da Costa played percussion on the track with Jonathan Moffett on drums and it was engineered and mixed by Michael Verdick; the phrase "La Isla Bonita" translates to "The Beautiful Island" in English. The song has four lines sung in Spanish, a theme which Madonna incorporated in her 1987 single "Who's That Girl".
The lyrics begin by describing Madonna as a tourist who prays "that the days would last, they went so fast" isolating the other Latin people as them. In her book Women and popular music, author Sheila Whiteley said that the chorus of the song places its emphasis on the incantatory present participle; the song draws connotations from the supplicant before its explicit focus on the chorus. In 2014, while working on her thirteenth studio album Rebel Heart with producer Diplo, Madonna recorded a dubplate of "La Isla Bonita" with new lyrics for his Major Lazer project. Diplo premiered the full version of it in March 2015 during his show on BBC Radio 1. In a review for the album The Immaculate Collection, David Browne of Entertainment Weekly compared the song with the moves of Carmen Miranda on MTV. Slant Magazine music critic Sal Cinquemani, in a review for the True Blue album, called the song one of Madonna's greatest, most influential and timeless songs. Author Maury Dean in his book Rock'n' Roll Gold Rush praised the song saying, "Madonna coos a Spanish lullaby.
Sizzly romance blooms among the cozy sheltering palms. Tough tunes for most males to shrug off."Rikky Rooksby, in his book The Complete G

Vikram laughs it off and decided to go after the tiger, not believing that this tiger is the cursed tiger. Arun asks Vikram to go back, it starts raining and the duo have to find a place to stay. Some strange voices were heard by the duo and they find the voices were coming from a den, but as the duo have to find a place to stay in, they decided to enter the den.

The following nights, Vikram's hunting spree continues as he kills more people after transforming into a tiger; the case of these murders is handled by Inspector Sudhir Pai, who enlists Forest Officer Bhaskar's assistance, since the victims resemble victims of animal attacks.

She tells them of how she saw Vikram transform into a tiger and based upon Bheema's suggestion, they build a ring of fire around themselves, since tigers are afraid of fire and Vikram won't attack them due to this. Vikram, in the form of the tiger, approaches them, but is unable to cross into their little circle of fire and moves away. Bhaskar offers to bring the car around so, he heads towards the car. Unbeknownst to them, Vikram is hiding inside the car lying in wait, he kills him as the group watches in horror. The group approaches Harry asking for a way to kill Vikram and end the curse.
