Yesterday, I was watching the movie Talaash, starring Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee. While the movie was itself very exciting and kept one on the cliff edge throughout wondering what was going to happen next, according to me, that was not the highlight of that show. The one thing that took away all my attention was the song, “Jiya Lage na”. It’s absolutely amazing !!! I’ve always liked the duo of Ram Sampath and Sona Mahapatra, right from when he used to compose music for the Aamir Khan produced TV show “Satyamev Jayate” and she used to sing the compositions. Some of the other songs for which the duo worked together are “Ghar Yaad Athi Hai”, “Mujhe Kya Bechega Rupaiya” and “Chanda Pe Dance” and for the TV show “Satyamev Jayate”. The male part has been sung Ravindra Upadhyay.
Coming back to this song, I liked everything about this song – the lyrics, the blend of Hindustani and Western flavours, the voice of the male and female singers. Hats off to Javed Akhtar for writing such beautiful lyrics!!! I can’t express how much this song has affected me. Now I’m addicted to it. I can’t stop listening to the song. 😀 . I hope Ram Sampath composes more such amazing songs.
I would like to thank Sai Vikneshwar (a senior of mine, who is crazy about music and films among other things), who asked me to watch the movie because but for him, I would not have had the opportunity to come to know about this song. 🙂
