I finally watched Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara last night and TOTALLY loved it! Major props to Farhan Akhtar (for being gorgeous, deep and hilarious at the same time), Abhay Deol for being (geeky, quirky and cute) and Hrithik Roshan (for being well, Hrithik Roshan I guess! The truth is I get why girls love him but Farhan is way more my “type”.) Katrina Kaif looks hot sleeping and I think Kalki Koechlin was slightly wasted as the one-dimensional annoying bride-to-be that pretty much anyone could have played. But I love that the film had a billion little jokes we would genuinely crack with our own gang of friends (bagwati included, #epic!) and that their Mantal Bwoyz professor lingo was totally #bangon! Farhan had me all chocked up with his painful-secret plot line and I seriously wanted to jump into the screen and give him a big fat hug. (Nice one Zoya Akhtar, I’m officially a fan.)

So please go watch this movie, I cannot even begin to tell you how AMAZING it is. Like Dil Chahta Hai all grown up and I’m terribly proud of the Indian Film Industry for finally coming of age with films like this and Delhi Belly. One of my favorite parts of course was Javed Akhtar’s brilliant poetry fitting recited by Farhan himself. Here it is in full glory for your viewing pleasure. My two favorites, “Yeh jo gehre sannate hain, Waqt ne sabko hi baante hain, Thoda ghum hai sabka qissa, Thodi dhoop hai sabka hissa…” and, “Dilon mein tum apni, Betaabiyan leke chal rahe ho, Toh zinda ho tum.” Kinda makes me wanna scream, “I’M ALIVE B*ATCH!!!”

Pighlay neelam sa behta hua yeh samaan

Neeli neeli si khamoshiyaan
Na kahin hai zameen
Na kahin aasmaan
Sarsaraati huyi tehniyaan, pattiyaan
Keh rahi hain ki bas ek tum ho yahaan
Sirf main hoon meri saansein hain aur meri dhadkanein
Aisi gehraiyaan
Aisi tanhaiyaan
Aur main sirf main
Apne honay pe mujhko yaqeen aa gaya

Ik baat honton tak hai jo aayi nahin

Bas ankhon say hai jhaankti
Tumse kabhi, mujhse kabhi
Kuch lafz hain woh maangti
Jinko pehanke honton tak aa jaaye woh
Aawaaz ki baahon mein baahein daalke ithlaye woh
Lekin jo yeh ik baat hai
Ahsas hi ahsas hai

Khushboo si hai jaise hawa mein tairti
Khushboo jo be-aawaaz hai
Jiska pata tumko bhi hai
Jiski khabar mujhko bhi hai
Duniya se bhi chupta nahin
Yeh jaane kaisa raaz hai

Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol and Farhan Akhtar

Jab jab dard ka baadal chaya

Jab ghum ka saya lehraya
Jab aansoo palkon tak aya
Jab yeh tanha dil ghabraya

Humne dil ko yeh samjhaya
Dil aakhir tu kyun rota hai
Duniya mein yunhi hota hai

Yeh jo gehre sannate hain
Waqt ne sabko hi baante hain
Thoda ghum hai sabka qissa
Thodi dhoop hai sabka hissa
Aankh teri bekaar hi nam hai
Har pal ek naya mausam hai
Kyun tu aise pal khota hai
Dil aakhir tu kyun rota hai

Dilon mein tum apni
Betaabiyan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum
Nazar mein khwabon ki
Bijliyan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum
Hawa ke jhokon ke jaise
Aazad rehno sikho
Tum ek dariya ke jaise
Lehron mein behna sikho
Har ek lamhe se tum milo
Khole apni bhaayein
Har ek pal ek naya samha
Dekhen yeh nigahaein
Jo apni aankhon mein
Hairaniyan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum
Dilon mein tum apni
Betaabiyan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum

P.S. On a lighter note the “You are in Love” and the “Doordarshan” scenes slayed me :) xoxo
