Blue Umbrella...

चाचा, छाते को लेकर कोई फायदा होगा क्या?

अबे, ये इन्द्रधानुस को देख के कोई फायदा होता है क्या?
ये पानी में सोट्टी सी कागज़ की नाउ तैराके कोई फायदा होत्ता है क्या?
वो पहाड़ी के पीसे सूरज को डूबते देखके कोई फायदा होत्ता है क्या?
और तेरे जैसे निखट्टू को काम पे रख के कोई फायदा होता है क्या?
...
आत्मा की सांति में नफा नुस्कान नहीं देखा जात्ता !!!
...
कुछ पिछले ही जनम का संबंद है !!!

छत्री और खत्री का !!!!


This is just one of the many dialogues that will keep you hooked to the Blue Umbrella... a movie which revolves around an old man's love for the blue umbrella a young girl Binya, in his village, got from the tourists, how he tries to buy her into giving the umbrella to him using all he could and more... The movie is based on a novel by Ruskin Bond and is directed by Vishal Bhardwaj.

I am not going to discuss the plot of the movie here because it has its own climax and how it unfolds, however I should mention that Pankaj Kapoor as Nandkishor Khatri, is at his amazing best with the simplest of scenes and dialogues that you would like to remember... The accent of Nandkishor Khatri is something to notice (well you will, without me mentioning it anyway). I am mentioning it specifically because I loved it !!! I LOVED IT...

What adds to the beauty and simplicity of the movie are the songs which have been written by Gulzar... every song is a gem in itself...

मेरा टेसू यहीं अड़ा,
खाने को मांगे दही बड़ा,
सूख गया मेरा टेसू,
एक टांग पे खड़ा खड़ा...
is one of my favorite songs ever, and needless to say the movie is a favorite too :) Do I have it in MP3? yes I have :) Do you want it? You know what to do

Chai ki Dukaan highly recommends this movie !!! Go get the VCD/DVD and watch it with the entire family !!


बिल गेट, अरे नंदू, बिल गेट...

अरे पता भी है कौन है?

अरे पता है... बिल गेट एह ... इंडिया गेट के पास है... पीछे की तरफ्फ़ पड़ता है ...
