I have always liked Santhosha kaNNeerey more than Dil Se Re. Maybe it’s because I listened to the Tamil version first. Anyway, I love the lyrics of both the songs (I like the words Santhosha KaNNeerey itself). What great lyrics that suits the mood of the song so beautifully!
Some of my favourite lines from the songs:
kalloNru thadaiseidha poadhum pulloNru pudhuvaergaL poadum
nam kaadhal adhu poala meerum
unnoadu naan kaNda bandham maNNoadu mazhai koNda sondham
kaaindhaalum adi eeram enjum
Do Patte Patjhad Ke Pedon Se Utre The
Pedon Ki Shakhon Se Utre The
Phir Utne Mausam Guzre Woh Patte Do Bechaare
Phir Ugne Ki Chahat Mein Woh Sahraon Se Guzre
Woh Patte Dil Dil Dil The Woh Dil The Dil Dil Dil The
Dil Hai To Phir Dard Hoga Dard Hai To Dil Bhi Hoga
Mausam Guzarte Hi Rahte Hain
With such a lovely lyrics having music by A R Rahman & sung by the man himself, is there anything more you can ask for?! 🙂 Add to it, when the song is picturized by Mani Ratnam you can rest assured that it is a visual cum aural treat. 🙂 Some parts that I like in the picturization of this song: the colours of Manisha’s costumes, Manisha’s bangles breaking in sync with the beats, Sharukh & Manisha running just as the bomb blasts behind them and the Army men run, Sharukh singing the lines ‘Do Patte Patjhad Ke….’ standing amidst patjhad ke patte! Wow!
