Music Stories.

If I am asked to lists something that I really enjoy, it would be be sleeping, eating, travelling, celebrating, reading, cooking, listening to music and writing.

My next few posts are going to combine two of my pleasures: listening to music and writing. I believe in the power of words and I believe in the strength of thoughts and actions. I believe in the sanctity of music and I believe in the power of hope.

The next few posts will show how music has changed lives; how music has kept people motivated and hopeful, how music has helped people in times of sadness and in times of happiness, how music has helped us shed tears and how music has left our souls empty and how music has created us.

I would like to call this series: Musical Chronicling: A Story of Mankind United Through Music.

Musical Chronocling

Keep tuned in for the first post.

Aaoge Jab Tum: Jab We Met

Releasing Year: 2008

I can’t tell you in words how much I love this movie and this word. Recently, my mind had been entirely wiped out about the existence of this song, but the day before, I heard it on YouTube on a playlist. And since then, it has been on loop inside my head. This is such a sad song, and if you watch the movie, you might just burst in tears. The music, especially the flute in the beginning, the video, the simplicity of the song is such that you are likely to tear up even if you don’t watch the movie. Speaking of the movie, the entire direction process, from the characterization, the story, the shooting, is flawless. Kareena plays Geet perfectly, looks beautiful, and Geet is probably one of her best performances. Aditya- Shahid is such an intense and a powerful character. He is gentle and sweet and caring and sincere and just plainly romantic. It’s a pity that they broke up in real life soon after this. Literally broke my heart. This movie, and this song, makes me wanna doodle Aditya ❤ Geet everywhere!

I mean, just look at the sincerity in his eyes!

Dil Chahta Hai: Dil Chahta Hai

Releasing Year: 2001

Dil Chahta Hai marked the directorial debut of the acclaimed artist Farhan Akhtar. Apart from being classified as a cult movie that marked the change in the B’wood’s been-there-done-that movies, it was breath of fresh air that changed the concept of youth which was more independent, career oriented, “selfish”. It defined friendships, love and life in a whole new dimension. This particular song is perfect for a road trip as is featured in the video. It’s funky, it’s catchy, it’s enjoyable. It is cool. Sort of makes you wanna take a road trip with your closest buddies.

P.S. Seems like I wanna do a Movie Mania about this film.
