Just listened to this amazing song from new movie Batti Gul Meter Chalu…
When you getting Gold why go for तांबा
When you getting गब्बर why go for सांबा
When you getting Rambo why go for रांझा
– Lyrics of a song from new movie Batti Gul Meter Chalu (बत्ती गुल मिटर चालू)
Lyrics by Siddhartha and Garima (not sure why it takes 2 full grown brains to write such song)
Composed, of course, by Anu Malik (who else can do proper justice to such lyrics)
The lyrics is really deep…I am glad that the next generations will carry the tradition in Hindi cinema of soul-stirring, deeply insightful lyricists such as Sahir Ludhianawi, Majrooh Sultanpuri, Anand Bakshi, Gulzar and Javed Akhtar!
Now even I am inspired to write poetry…!
