Weird Lyrics

Ya, I know standard of lyrics in hindi movies is rapidly going southwards, and though they're still accepted by audience, may be it's all about getting a immediate kick, rather than having something to relish in long term. Hmm.. commercialization at its crudest best.

Music of SRK and Farah Khan's latest movie cashes on this current trend, and its weird.

Farah Khan is no Deepa Mehta, her 'Main Hoon Na' was a big big torture, and most irritating part is the way she and her brother present themselves on screen as if they are biggest critics and know-it-all about cinema and all.

Lets leave Farah bashing for some other time, and coming to the point, last evening for the first time I heard the complete 'Dard-E-Disco' song, whole song is based on rhythm which is good n catchy...but lyrics are so weirdly funny specially these lines....

something something.........
abb phirta hoon mein, london, paris, new york, san francisco
dil mein mere hai, dard-e-disco, dard-e-disco, dard-e-disco

something something.........
dil tod gaya mujhse chhod gaya, woh peechale mahine ke chhabis ko
dil mein mere hai, dard-e-disco, dard-e-disco

Reminds of one the interviews of Late Majrooh Sultanpuri in which he quipped about present day lyricists....

"Aana milla diyaa….. jaana milla diya....aur ban gaye lyricist"

what do you mean, southwards, huh? huh? is that a dig at south indian movies?? ;)
meanwhile, one's expectations of a farah khan movie and all its aspects on an artistic/creative plane should not be much :D

hahahaha! that was a gem from Majrooh sultanpuri!
and seriously..."woh peechale mahine ke chhabis ko
dil mein mere hai, dard-e-disco, dard-e-disco" HAHAHAHA!

btw...the lyricist for this song is actually javed akhtar...that is something you dont expect from him...but then you listen to sameer's "dil da mamla hai dilbar
hun na zor hai is dil par
khalbali hai dil ke andar"
and you realize that at least javed saab was creative in looking for rhyming words for something as fucked up as disco...
