Lakdi ki Kathi, Kathi Pe Ghoda, Ghode ki dum pe jo mara hathoda
I grew up listening to this beautiful innocent song from the movie Masoom and used to think that this is just another movie made for kids, never thought to give it a see untill I listened to the song..
Tujhse Naraj Nahi Zindagi, Hairan Hoon Main
Tere Masoom Sawalon se, Pareshan hoon Main
The only word that comes to my mind after seeing this is brilliance, sheer brilliance; of everyone.. all the actors especially the kid Yougal Hansraj and the Director.. Well it was all so real and convincing that for a fraction of time I paused the movie and put myself in Naseer’s position and tried to analyze the situation. What could I have done in that situation or anyone for that matter.
Life is such a thing that at times it takes us to a point where no matter what we think or try to do, we are left helpless, only with a hope that may be someday everything will become alright; well till then its only suffering…
[PS: The mp3 of the song Tujhse Naraaz Nahi can be found here.]
