Music to keep from 2010 (Part 2)

2nd Place

Album : Ishqiya

Song : Badi Dheere Jali

Music : Vishal Bharadwaj

Lyrics : Gulzar

Singer : Rekha Bharadwaj


My choice for 2nd place in my ‘Keepers for 2010’ list is this little gem from Ishqiya.  I admit, I am biased towards classical music, and even within Bollywood music, I tend to like the more traditional songs. Compliments to Rekha Bharadwaj for having beautifully rendered this song in Raga Lalit. I paid attention to the words once I realised they were by Gulzar but honestly it works for me on music alone. The clip below plays the songs to the stills from the movie.

There is another song in this film which is noteworthy, though it doesn’t make my list  – ‘Dil to baccha hai ji’ by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. The clip below is wonderful, see how Naseeruddin Shah emotes with his eyes. What a fantastic actor !!
