Dil Toh Bachcha Hai Ji…

Went to Koshy’s last Sunday. But I won’t review it. Because you can’t review what’s cult culture. Neither can you go wrong with it. The ambience is nothing extraordinary, and yet it is. The food is decent. The music – awesome! Frank Sinatra and Koshy’s filter kaapi on a sunny Sunday afternoon… You will walk out smiling. Take my word for it!

But this post is not about Koshy’s (although I have rambled on about in an entire paragraph :P). This is about the recent chartbuster – Dil Toh Bachcha Hai Ji. I still haven’t seen the movie, but I hear it’s next big cult thing after Omkara. This song takes my heart away. Yes, this from someone who doesn’t say that often. You can read it out like poetry, singing it is tough (even for me, I can sing anything. Really bad, but sing I can!). Rahet Fateh Ali Khan has outdone himself in this one. From whatever Rahet Fateh Ali Khan music I know of, this probably is the breeziest. I don’t understand music as a science, but I can tell that the song has no extraordinarily high notes. But there is something about this song that makes it so difficult to sing. And Mr Khan just croons most of it like he’s bathroom-singing :) I LOVE the song! Songs like this genre can’t be described as “peppy”, but that’s what it is. Peppy, feel good… Just the kind of song one would listen to on a Saturday afternoon. And the lyrics… What lyrics! The language is plain, but the way it all comes together is beautiful. I especially love the lines
Kisko pataa tha pehlu mein rakha
Dil aisa paaji bhi hoga
Hum to hamesha samajhte the koi
Hum jaisa haaji hi hoga
Hai zor karein, kitna shor karein
Bewaja baatein pe ainwe gaur karein
Dilsa koi kameena nahi

I love the song. I can’t seem to get enough of it. Period. My only pet peeve is I will never be able to do a Karaoke on it. Go OD on it I say!
