In the autumn sunday afternoon, i down with blues and instrospection, in deep thoughts and expecting something to catch my attention, i turned to ‘Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi ‘.
Kaafi sunna tha iske baare mein!!
Thought ki, chalo! let literature, serious and catchy revolutionary movie take me away for  a ride. It surely did!
Set in the mid 1960’s to 1970’s, its a story of indian youth, ‘bourgeois’ affected by EMERGENCY, the birth of naxalism in bihar and the raw governance we had.  The Evolution of marxism or say LEFTist theories can be felt here, and perhaps Sudhir Mishra does an amazing work by capturing the imagination and mentality of the youth then, torn between revolutionary thoughts, wild passions, frugal mentalities or even power hunger minds. And yet, the importance of literacy, its paradox, the choices of people then, and the lack of it for many. Its politically correct in certain ways, but mainly blunt in its narration.
We euphemistically, hmm.. no metaphorically understand the meaning of social gap of 5000 years between time.
Its definitely an opinionated movie and yet one feels it need had to be an adaptation of some novel or a biopic.
I suggest people to watch, but at the same time, do not if you feel threatened about your protected and conventional ideologies.
Listen to the song on the right in my FAV VIDEOS.
BAVRA MANN…
Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi

Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi

Bawra mann dekhne chala ek sapna,
bawra mann dekhne chala ek sapna…
bawre se mann ki dekho bawri hain baatein,
bawri si dharkanein hain, bawri hain saasein,
bawri si karwaton se nindiya door bhage,
bawre se nain chahe bawre jharokhon se,
bawre nazaaron ko takna.
bawra mann dekhne chala ek sapna,
bawra mann dekhne chala ek sapna…
bawre se iss jahan mein bawara ek saath ho,
iss sayani bheed mein bas haathon mein tera haath ho,
bawri si dhun ho koi, bawra ek raag ho,
bawre se pair chahe, bawre taranon pein,
bawre se bol pe thirakna.
bawra mann dekhne chala ek sapna,
bawra mann dekhne chala ek sapna…
bawra sa ho andhera, bawri khamoshiyan,
thartharati louh maddham, bawri madhoshiyan,
bawra ek ghoongta chahe, haule haule mooh batae,
bawra ek ghoongta chahe, haule haule din batae,
bawre se mukhre se sarakna.
bawra man dekhne chala ek sapna,
bawra man dekhne chala ek sapna…
