I am really sleepy and very tired after a looooong day! So just posting the link to the song today, details will follow later. Don’t let that bother you though, listen to the song and enjoy the romantic setting like I did! 🙂
Update: Finally the promised post.
Dil Hi Dil Mein is one of those movies that I can say was before it’s time and not at the same time. Two people meet on the internet, lie about their identities and finally discover the truth – that certainly seems like something from this world. However, the number of times they confess their love to each other and the number of times it goes haywire is astounding! Even for a Bollywood film!
Originally in Tamil, this movie was dubbed into Hindi, so quite honestly, I am surprised it has good lyrics. Not only that, I think this is a rare album by Rahman where only a single song has stood out to me in an entire album. Seems like the rest as simply timepass.
Enjoy Sonali Bendre in various dresses simply wandering about in this song (reminds me of her “Soundarya Sabun Nirma” ad), and the picturesque locales. Abhijeet has really done a nice job with the song.
The lines I would listen to over and over again:
Lagta hain ke tum ko, rab ne banaya jis dum,
Apni kudaraton ko usne tum mein kar diya tha gum,
Iss jahaan ko husn baatna bhi kar diya tha kam.
(It seems like the moment the almighty created you,
he lost his nature in you,
and he he distributed less beauty to the world since.)
