    Laree Choote 

    Nice song – From Ek Chalis Ki Last Local (which has some pretty interesting scenes as I found out last night at Ojas’).

    जो होता है अच्छे के लिए होता है
    ग़लत केहते है …

    किस्मत का खेल है सारा
    फिरता था में आवारा
    ये क्या से क्या हो गया
    चार दिन की ज़िंदगानी
    हैर पल एक नई कहानी
    क्या था में क्या बन गया

    क्या हुआ जो लारी छूटी
    जीवन की गाड़ी लूटी
    ख्वाब है तो मुझको ना जगा
    ज़िंदगी एक पल में साली
    यूँ पलट गई हुमारी
    झूठ है तो मुझको ना बता

    मुंबई ..सुना था यहाँ आदमी
    पूरी ज़िंदगी अपनी किस्मत स्लोव ट्रक्क से फ़ास्ट ट्रक्क लाने में निकल देता है
    पेर ढाई घंटे में मेरी किस्मत
    ऐसे स्लोव ट्रक्क से फ़ास्ट ट्रक्क पर
    आ जाएगी ये मैने कभी सोचा नही था
    सज़ा मज़ा बन जाएगी
    ये भी कभी सोचा नही था
    लास्ट लोकल क्या छूटी
    साला किस्मत पटरी पर आगाई

    कर लो जो भी करना है
    होता है जो होना है
    गुज़रा तो पल ये फिर ना आएगा
    क्या बुरा है क्या भला है
    वक़्त ही शायद खुदा है
    हो जाने दो फिर देखा जाएगा

    क्या हुआ जो लारी छूती
    जीवन की गाड़ी लूटी
    ख्वाब है तो मुझको ना जगा
    ज़िंदगी एक पल में साली
    यूँ पलट गई हुमारी
    झूठ है तो मुझको ना बता

    वो केहते हैं ना
    जो होता है अच्छे के लिए होता है
    सही केहते हैं

    Kuch Is Tarah – Lyrics 

    Brilliant song.

    कुछ इस तरह तेरी पलकें मेरी पलकों से मिला दे
    आँसू तेरे सारे मेरी पलकों पे सज़ा दे

    तू हर घड़ी हर वक़्त मेरे साथ रहा है
    हाँ ये जिस्म कभी दूर कभी पास रहा है
    जो भी ग़म हैं ये तेरे उन्हें तू मेरा पता दे

    कुछ इस तरह तेरी पलकें मेरी पलकों से मिला दे
    आँसू तेरे सारे मेरी पलकों पे सज़ा दे

    मुझको तोह तेरे चेहरे पे एह ग़म नहीं जंचता
    जायज़ नहीं लगता मुझे ग़म से तेरा रिश्ता
    सुन मेरी गुज़ारिश इसे चेहरे से हटा से

    कुछ इस तरह तेरी पलकें मेरी पलकों से मिला दे
    आँसू तेरे सारे मेरी पलकों पे सज़ा दे

    ~ Kuch Is Tarah – Atif Aslam ~

    Black Friday 

    I saw this movie quite a while back, but the scenes are still fresh in my memory. The gory scene just after the blast and the deformed bodies. The police torture scene and the man shooting himself and his family. The exploitation of angry Muslim youth by Tiger Memon and many more. Its hard to believe that the same director has actually directed Shaka Laka Boom Boom.

    The movie has been adapted by Anurag Kashyap from a book by Hussain Zaidi. The movie is fast paced and moves effortlessly form the past to the present and various scenes. The movie uses original names, from Tiger Memon to Dawood Ibrahim. No one has been spared, not the Muslims, not the Hindus, not the Police and not even Balasaheb Thakare. For once a hindi movie has called a spade a spade. The movie even manages to humanize the terrorists without actually pardoning them. As Ojas puts it here, “And that graffiti on the police station cell wall and that chase sequence… they have managed to catch even the minutest details.

    The brilliant Kay Kay Menon, as Inspector Mario, speaks more from his eyes than his actions. The scenes with his dipping his head in a bucket of water, and giving the lady her spectacles back are just awesome. However, the movie’s best act goes to Pavan Malhotra as Tiger Memon. He has played his part exceptionally well. Tiger’s histerical shouting after his office is burnt down and his manipulation of the angry Muslim youth is spell binding. Also worth mention is a splendid performance by Aditya Srivastava as Badsah Khan. His potrayl of Badsah’s journey and the troubles during it make you sit up and take notice. His tussle scene with Yeda Yakub for his passport gets you to the edge of your seat. Overall the movie gets a 4.5/5 from me. A def must watch!!

    One complain with the movie. I think at points it has under used the music by Indian Ocean. The song Bandeh comes at the end, and is a masterpiece. I wish I hear them play it live once.

    अरे मंदीर ये चुप है, अरे मस्जिद है गुमसूम, इबादत थक पड़ेगी हो
    समय की लाल आँधी, कब्रिस्तान ये रास्ते, अरे लतपट् चलेगी हो

    अरे नींदें है ज़ख़्मी, अरे सपने है भूखे, की करवत फट पड़ेगी हो
    एह आंधी चोट तेरी, कभी की सुख जाती, मगर अब पाक चलेगी

    PS: What is it with guys and water. I personally feel so much better after a shower when I am depressed and also how sweet the rain feels at times.

    This is the brilliant song sung by the now-seen-in-every movie, yet brilliant, Amitabh Bacchan. I personally know some one who wouldn’t be complaining at all.

    The movie is Nishabd, apparently the RGV’s version of Lolita. Anyways, I liked the song and am posting the part of the song I really loved.

    कुछ गाऊं तो याद आते हो
    गुनगुनाऊं तो याद आते हो
    कुछ पेहनू तो याद आते हो
    कहीं जाऊं तो याद आते हो
    कुछ खोने पे याद आते हो
    कुछ पाऊं तो याद आते हो

    Brilliant lyrics and song. Go check it out.

    Subtle lyrics be damned 

    Sample these from “Leaving Beirut” – Roger Waters. By the way it is an awesome song!!

    Oh George! Oh George!
    That Texas education must have fucked you up when you were very small

    But now an Englishman abroad is just a US stooge
    The bulldog is a poodle snapping round the scoundrel’s last refuge

    Is gentleness too much for us
    Should gentleness be filed along with empathy
    We feel for someone else’s child
    Every time a smart bomb does its sums and gets it wrong
    Someone else’s child dies and equities in defence rise
    America, America, please hear us when we call
    You got hip-hop, be-bop, hustle and bustle
    You got Atticus Finch
    You got Jane Russell
    You got freedom of speech
    You got great beaches, wildernesses and malls
    Don’t let the might, the Christian right, fuck it all up
    For you and the rest of the world

    I need a holiday 

    Ojas made me listen to this song today. All I can think of now is

    I may take a holiday in Spain
    Leave my wings behind me
    Drink my worries down the drain
    And fly away to somewhere new

    I suggest you get hold of the song and listen to it. Meanwhile, check out this piece at Dextrous Doings, and the quote that follows. Nice one. More here.

    Most underrated hindi song 

    Here is what I personally believe is the most under-rated hindi songs of our times!! Brilliant lyrics by Gulzar and sung by the extremely talented Jaspindar Narula, this song is extremely touching. Annu Malik has the knack of coming up with brilliant music every once in a while, and this brilliance is undermined by loads of pedestrian stuff.

    ना ले के जाओ मेरे दोस्त का जनाज़ा है
    अभी तो गर्म है मिट्टी ये जिस्म ताज़ा है
    ना ले के जाओ…

    उलझ गई है कहीं साँस खोल दो इस की
    लबों पे आई है जो बात पूरी करने दो
    अभी उम्मीद भी जिन्दा है ग़म भी ताज़ा है
    ना ले के जाओ…

    जगाओ इस को गले मिल के अलविदा तो कहूँ
    ये कैसी रुख़सती है ये क्या सलीका है
    अभी तो जीने का हर एक ज़ख्म ताज़ा है
    ना ले के जाओ…

    • Movie: Fizaa
    • Singer: Jaspindar Narula
    • Lyrics: Gulzar
    • Music: Annu Malik

    Walk On 

    Another brilliant U2 song that should be on my list of favourite U2 songs. Check out the lyrics.

    And love is not the easy thing
    The only baggage that you can bring
    Love is not the easy thing
    The only baggage you can bring
    Is all that you can’t leave behind…

    U2 – Walk On

    Got this song by Atif Aslam, of Tere Bin fame recently, from some blog on the net. Contains very melodius music and awesome lyrics. You can download the song here.

    आज दिल दुखा है .. तुम याद आए
    अनजाने लोग हैं .. अपने कहाँ ढूँड पायं

    जागे हैं .. सोए नहीं .. ऐसी है मेरे एह बेचैनी ..
    दिन भी वही .. रातें वहीं .. साँसों मैं साँसें हैं नही

    शामें अब ढलती नहीं .. आँचल जो तेरा सिमट जाए ..
    आ अब यहाँ हमेशा रहें .. दूरी रहे ना हों फ़ासले ..

    जागे हैं सोए नही .. ऐसी है मेरी एह बेचैनी ..
    दिन भी वही .. रातें वाहें .. साँसों मैं साँसे हैं नही ..

    अब अगर तुम मिले तो .. इतना यक़ीन हैं
    हँस देंगे हम तो रोना नहीं है ..

    Top 5 U2 Songs 

    Ojas once said, “Anybody who likes music cannot hate U2”, or something to that effect. I sure like music and U2 is a personal favourite. Here is a list of my 5 personal favourite U2 songs:

    5. The Hands That Built America: Sheer melody and awesome lyrics. Also contains one of the most memorable lines in any song.

    You gotta live with your dreams, don’t make them so hard.

    4. I still haven’t found what I am looking for: When you get what you want, but not what you need. Laced with religious symbolism and great vocals, it makes you think hard.

    3. Mothers of the disappeared: This song is dedicated to the mothers of the revolutionaries in Argentina, but I have always connected it to mothers of those who gave their lives serving the armed forces. Different music and a hymn like feeling makes this song very special.

    2. Sometimes you can’t make it on your own: A song that Bono sang at his fathers funeral. A touching song, specially this part of it:

    You don’t have to put up a fight
    You don’t have to always be right
    Let me take some of the punches
    For you tonight

    1. With or Without You: I first heard this song long before I actually knew it was a U2 song during an episode of F.R.I.E.N.D.S (TOW Ross and Rachel break up), and immediately liked it. One of the most sentimental U2 songs and also has a very nice and smooth guitar riff at the end. Also happens to be a favourite of most of my close friends.

    It is special because of many reasons. For Ross and Rachel, for F.R.I.E.N.D.S, for Psenti Music Nites, for Psentisem, for BITS – Pilani, and for many more.

      I couldn’t help but stumble across your blog. I, myself being a big U2 fan, would have a different top 5 list then you. I suppose that’s the great thing about U2 – they have a collection of such great songs that everyone’s top five would be different. My top 10 (in no particular order) would be:

      1. Man and a Woman
      2. Bad
      3. I Will Follow
      4. Love and Peace (or Else)
      5. Until the End of the World
      6. Elevation
      7. New Years Day
      8. Gloria
      9. Running to Stand Still
      10. Silver and Gold

      And an honourable mention to their song “Salome” because it’s just so catchy!

    • Goyal 11:45 on Monday, December 11, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      Exactly. I would also include Pride, Elevation in my top 10 list.

      Having said that, let me also say that U2 isn’t my favourite band. The honour goes to Pink Floyd, while David Gilmour takes the favourite artist. U2 and Bono are runners up in both categories.

    • Ojas 18:24 on Monday, December 11, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      DrDanielle : You are hundred percent right. See the variation: for me, it is:

      ~ One (I am surprised that this song hasn’t featured in both you guys’ lists)
      ~ With or without you
      ~ Staring at the sun
      ~ Red hill mining town
      ~ Walk on
      ~ I still haven’t…
      ~ Bad
      ~ Where the streets…
      ~ City of blinding lights; and
      ~ Mothers of the disappeared
      ~ Numb

      …in no particular order.

      Goyal : The statement i made about U2 doesn’t hold true about Floyd. At all.

    • Goyal 18:37 on Monday, December 11, 2006 Permalink | Reply


      First, One would be a part of the top 10, not 5 for me.

      Second, maybe Pink Floyd doesn’t have that much variety and maybe they do not appeal to such a large cross section of people. But then the choice in music is very subjective (as highlighted by the 3 lists above). And for me Pink Floyd, with Comfortably Numb, Learning to Fly, Money, High Hopes and many more, are way ahead of U2.

      That said both are from different eras and genres and hence can’t be compared. Both are great bands with brilliant music.

    • drdanielle 1:55 on Tuesday, December 12, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      I’m not a huge Pink Floyd fan, but I understand how music is very subjective.
      For some reason “One” has never stood out as one of U2’s best for me. I don’t know why. I think maybe it’s because it has become such a cliche song for some people (playing it at their weddings and such…figure that one out). Perhaps it was also because being only 20, I was not really old enough to enjoy the song when it first came out (although Actung Baby is still one of my favorite albums). I must say, however, that the recent duet with Mary J. Blige totally reinvented the song. I think female vocals changed the song a lot.

      P.S. I also forgot about “Walk On” and “Crumbs from Your Table”…those songs have incredible guitar melodies.

    • drdanielle 2:12 on Tuesday, December 12, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      Oh, I’m sorry. I also forgot all about “Electrical Storm”. That is definitly one of my favorite U2 songs.

    • Goyal 11:09 on Tuesday, December 12, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      I would also add Walk On to my favourite list. Damn!! This list seems to be getting longer and longer.

      One thing, when it comes to music and movies, its difficult to name your favourites. You make a list and then you remember that you have missed out so many more!!

    • Ojas 14:44 on Wednesday, December 13, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      Here cometh a few more…

      ~ Stuck in a moment (how did i… :x)
      ~ Sweetest thing
      ~ Electrical Storm

      Much afterthought later, I realise that there is no point in coming up with such lists, especially when the bands under consideration are legends like U2, Floyd, Metallica, Maiden, Simon and Garfunkel, The Eagles, The Beatleas, Deep Purple, Dire Straits, The carpenters et al.

      (This is another subjective list, so i keep it for myself. I am sure I might have missed some there. A list (again), in no particular order)!

    • Samer Qasem 3:57 on Saturday, December 30, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      For me as U2 fan, I think the top 10 songs are the following:

      1-Where the streets have no name
      2-With or with out you
      4-I still have not found what I am looking for
      5-City of blinding lights
