It is not everyday that a movie is released that has an ever-lasting impression on our minds. Forget everyday; sometimes, its years before you come across a movie that leaves a mark and meaning. One that wins our hearts right from the very first show that hits the multiplexes. One that is on everyone’s lips more than their names.
That name these days is Buuffiiiii…! Did I pronounce it correctly? Who cares?? 😀
So, yes the movie is BARFI.
I got a chance to watch it first thing in the morning on Wednesday. Thanks to the Ganesh Chaturthi Holiday.
Now, no specific reason for the longing to watch it except for the fact that I am a big-time Actor Priyanka Chopra admirer. So, I had to watch it, come what may. And let me admit it, I immensely loved her acting in the movie. Extra-ordinary!
Saying that I loved the movie would be an exaggerated understatement.
Both the stars Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra are amazingly awesome all through the movie. I was enraptured by how brilliantly they both have outdone their roles in the movie. I am still reliving various stills from the movie in my mind. I am totally, absolutely, utterly, solidly bewitched by the movie as it silently plays in the back of my mind.
There is this one particular song that most appealed to me.
Aashiyan. Meaning – Home. In one word I can describe this song as ‘Captivating‘. I would want my friends to listen to it and hence here I have pasted a link from YouTube for you. Even though the lyrics(which is in hindi) might sound outlandish to a few of us, I’d still want you to listen to it and savor the music.
Watch it here:
With its most elegant music, it captivates your heart like no other. The picturisation is so immensely beautiful yet cute that it tends to leave a permanent dent in your heart with all the love and humor.
These few lines make so much sense to me in this world full of reality based shit.
Aadhi aadhi baant le
Aaja dil ki ye zameen
Thoda sa tera sa hoga
Thoda mera bhi hoga apna ye Aashiyan
Let’s share the land of my heart. You own a bit. I own a bit. And lets call it our home to be. (Managed to translate it somehow)
And that is exactly what this song conveys. There is nothing as precious as love. It reminds me a few lines I’d read somewhere,
‘To love is heavenly, to be loved is divine‘.
