Last night, just randomly I watched this movie titled Billu Barber. I don’t wait for movies now. I don’t plan to buy them or try to be hooked to the cable in order to catch my favorite movie. I watch movies when and if I get time and desire.
I had seen the songs from that movie, all of them starring Shahrukh Khan with different heroines. The promos didn’t excite me much. So I watched this movie without any expectation. It turned out to be really nice and entertaining. The village where the movie has been shot is scenic. The acting was fine and so was the story. I could very well understand Billu’s hesitation to meet the super star Sahir Khan when the film unit comes to shoot in his village. The dialogues in the end where Billu says to Sahir that you paced in life and touched the heights of success while I remained the same old village man were wonderful and totally natural.
Sometimes simple stories appeal so much as compare to the glitter and glam that’s mandatory part of the commercial cinema.
Khudaya Khair: That’s my most favorite song. It has amazing lyrics:
Woh surmay ki tarah meri
Aankhon main hi rehti hai
Subah ke khawab se udai hai
Palkon ke neechay chupai hai
Mano na mano tum
Soote soote khawabon main bhi khawab dekhati hai
