Haunting Scores, amazing lyrics, fabulous Lata!










A simple song, a hesitant lady, lots of day dreaming...still don't know why I love it....maybe because simple things are the most genuine...

For some reason, I never liked the Saawariya song, probably the weakest link in the album. Personal opinion, again.

But I always had to watch it coz the song has the most beautiful and unforgettable shots of the movie as the trio make their journey.

@Deepak - Somehow I always felt that aahista aahista was the weakest link in the album...

I love saawariya because of it's very genuine lyrics...nothing over the top, not too many mushy confessions..
just plain realization of love...

@ashkd - I know, so pure!! I love these :)

I loved the 'mera saya'. Movie was awesome.BUt bahut time hogaya DD pe dekhi thi... :)
And abt swadesh; like deepak even I thght sawariya was weak link. and I loved ahistha ahistha more because of SRK's expressions...

@ATANA : Agree with the grounded lyrics, but I cannot tolerate the song. Maybe it is Alka Yagnik, coz I don't mind the pure music parts of the song. I don't take too nicely to her singing, you see, except maybe a couple of songs.

Aahista .. hehe. One of the best melodies from Rahman and fine performance by Udit Narayan.

Incidentally, this whole album is arguably Udit Narayan at his best.

@allthecrap - Ok...I just love Saawariya...Sweet lyrics and beautiful Gayatri...Also, I guess the song has been shot in Wai in Maharashtra...beautiful place !
Waise I don't like SRK one bit...I think this was his best work ever :)

@Deepak - Strong words there about Alka...anyway, as usual, we should agree to disagree :)
