Don't shoot me, :-) I love Gulzar's poetry, I really do.... And this is such an example that takes my breath away while listening after I have recorded it long ago, still having the same impact on some hidden strings I hardly was aware I had had.
This is such a beautiful composition, the melody is neither too classic nor very modern, the poetry is neither too philosophical nor too contemplative but painfully revealing and deep, like a rhetorical call to a doubtful unknown God who refuses to look down at a restless soul. I saw this movie long ago, I was too small to understand it, too little to be able to believe life is different than rosy at an age when everything was possible except for what happened in that movie. Now I understand why it attracted so much of a negative feedback from critics, after all, there are certain realities of life people don't accept easily.
I am grateful, once more, to Naqvi Sir for this beautiful, deep mix, which has brought front the expressions I have put inn while recording. This too is a jeweler work Sir, thank You.
