I am usually late at receiving good things in life. So again late to get the real taste of this superb song. I faintly remember overlooking this song quite a few times. But lastly this song has bitten me badly. The song is fresh and inspires to dream.
It transports back to my days of -Teri galiyan. In love everything that belongs to lover is lovable too, be it her street, city, railway station, home, hostel, school ,college, university , canteen, library, park and temple - her letters, gifts, flowers, bands, music cassetes, cards, diary, fallen hanky even her chai, samosa, Rajma- chawal, kadi -chawal, juice and golgappa shop, every place and everything becomes lovable. AND HER favourite movies, books poems are my too, her favourite songs and Ghazals are MINE.
Manoj Muntashir the lyricist must have been smitten by love at some point in life otherwise this kind of song cannot be written. The music and singing by new comer Ankit Tiwari is melodious and goes very well with the theme of the lyrics. It may be” beginners luck” as Paulo Coehlo says in the novel Alchemist.
The visuals are so good that they put some shadow on the real theme of the song. Though it is hard to believe that anybody could think more creative stuff than shown in the song. The visuals are showing dreamy world of the lovers which is far away from real world of the ordinary people (I mean people not smitten by love). Still the song needs second round of -pure ears without eyes- to get the essence of the song. What you can do while listening, fill the visuals in your mind by dreaming and dreaming.
