Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara… Thank You Javed Sahib

Three weeks, I have been avoiding the movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara , but your thanks to your poetry and the three protagonists it feels nice to be re-booted again till the next setback!

I was thinking that it’s the same old wine in the new bottle, the wine been Dil Chahta Hai  (2001), Rock On (2008)…and I was right. But the fact is at each point when these two movies released I (and all of us) are at different points in our life, struggling against something. Some message may strike you when you watch some movie – showcasing friendship and bonding.

But janta forget it does strike us again and again. Right from Dosti (1964) the classic film with a classic song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7UK80PQkoo&feature=related) on friendship and even now…proves one thing. Man is a SOCIAL ANIMAL J . Individuality does give us a drive for purpose, but it is family and friends which gives an identity.  Now think of your best two friends and where there are now.

Coming back to the movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara three protagonist each with a background story, dilemma, fear and a choice in the future. Life is about choices and each one will decide how the future will shape. Yes the movie was shot in Spain with well to do background, but emotions to not lie. The poetry of Javed Sahib defined each section.

While HRK was lost in work and chase for fame and money, Farhaan was like boy refusing to grow up and comic reader and finally A.Deol the balanced and practical guy also had a weak spot. Each one of us may fall in some section of this in some part of our life. We need to grow up, be sure of our choices and see life is more than money.

And before I forget…Katrina Kaif – way to go girl, if you want it go get it (the new confident Indian woman)

The Gems (Poetry): taken from : http://www.indicine.com/movies/bollywood/zindagi-na-milegi-dobara-poems/

Poem 1: Life is Short and You Need to Believe you Exist to Enjoy It!
Ik baat honton tak hai jo aayi nahin
Bas ankhon say hai jhaankti
Tumse kabhi, mujhse kabhi
Kuch lafz hain woh maangti
Jinko pehanke honton tak aa jaaye woh
Aawaaz ki baahon mein baahein daalke ithlaye woh
Lekin jo yeh ik baat hai
Ahsas hi ahsas hai

Khushboo si hai jaise hawa mein tairti
Khushboo jo be-aawaaz hai
Jiska pata tumko bhi hai
Jiski khabar mujhko bhi hai
Duniya se bhi chupta nahin
Yeh jaane kaisa raaz hai

Poem 2: Expression is Essence of Life, otherwise the question of What If will Always Remain!
Jab jab dard ka baadal chaya
Jab ghum ka saya lehraya
Jab aansoo palkon tak aya
Jab yeh tanha dil ghabraya

Humne dil ko yeh samjhaya
Dil aakhir tu kyun rota hai
Duniya mein yunhi hota hai

Yeh jo gehre sannate hain
Waqt ne sabko hi baante hain
Thoda ghum hai sabka qissa
Thodi dhoop hai sabka hissa
Aankh teri bekaar hi nam hai
Har pal ek naya mausam hai
Kyun tu aise pal khota hai
Dil aakhir tu kyun rota hai

Poem 3 Forget the Past, Pain is Eternal
Pighle neelam sa behta ye sama,
neeli neeli si khamoshiyan,
na kahin hai zameen na kahin aasmaan,
sarsaraati hui tehniyaan pattiyaan,
keh raheen hai bas ek tum ho yahan,
bas main hoon,
meri saansein hain aur meri dhadkanein,
aisi gehraiyaan, aisi tanhaiyaan,
aur main… sirf main.
Apne hone par mujhko yakeen aa gaya.

Poem 4 – For the Future…You Need to be Alive
Dilon me tum apni betabiyan leke chal rahe ho,to zinda ho tum
Nazar me khwaabon ki bijliyan leke chal rahe ho,to zinda ho tum
Hwa ke jhokon ke jaise aazad rehno sekho
Tum ek dariya ke jaise lehron mein behna sekho
Hr ek lamhe se tum milo khole apni baahein
Hr ek pal ek nya sama dekhe nigahein
Jo apni ankhon mein hairanian leke chal rahe ho,to zinda ho tum
Dilon mein tum apni betabian leke chal rahe ho,to zinda ho tum

I wonder what Khan would say now on not having lyrics or words in song…or something in a similar nature. Poetry and songs are power expression, the soul… thank god for Urdu, hearing such poem makes us feel alive again.

And…thanks to the one for taking me to the movie.
