Bann ke titli dil uda uda uda hai... Kahin doooor...

I am definitely sure that everyone has heard this melodious track from the SRK starrer superhit movie - Chennai Express. To be honest, as I am writing this review, I am myself downloading the movie and one of the major reasons for why I want to see this movie is just because of this particular song.

No offense, most of the songs in the movie are a pleasure to listen to but there is always some song that stands out the rest. Titli is one of those songs.

Probably I like songs which are very feminine or maybe are depicting the inner most desires and joys of the female protagonists… like Titli itself, Manmarziyaan from Lootera, Eli Re Eli from Yaadein, Aadha Ishq from Band Baaja Baraat, and lots more.. But then again, these songs can be heard at anytime. You can hear them when you are happy, or when you are sad, when you feel romantic, when you are having a little heart-ache… and the beauty of these songs is that they never fail to make you better no matter how high you are already feeling.


Tamil Poetry

Kondal vannanaik kovalanay venney

Unda vayan en, Ullam kavarndhanai (x2)






Andar kon ani arangkan en amudhinaik

Andar kon ani arangkan en amudhinaik

Kanda kangal marronrinaik kanave



Translation:

I have seen the One whose color is like dark rainclouds

He is the one with the mouth that swallowed the butter of cowherds,

He is the Lord of the devas, He is Lord Ranganatha,

He is my nectar, my life!

My eyes have seen my Lord and will not see anything else!

This concept of adding lyrics from another language, has proven really nice. Not knowing the other language but at times the feelings in the voices are enough to communicate with the other person. And I believe that this is the beauty of the songs with bits from other languages. Like, some english piece adds a flavor of rap or rock to the song… Similarly, these days, the south Indian (including Bengali) touch to the song has added an additional bit of romance to the song.

Also, there is no language for love… Love in itself is free from such constraints. It is something that is felt… and if you really love someone it doesn’t really matter if you don’t know each other's language. If feelings are true, you don’t have to speak a single word to explain anything. Things from the heart can be directly heard by another heart.

Bann ke titli dil uda uda uda hai
Kahin doooor...
Bann ke titli dil uda uda uda hai
Kahin doooor...
Chal ke khushboo se juda juda juda hai
Kahin doooor...
Haadse ye kaise
Unsune se jaise choome adheron ko
Koi Nooor...
Bann ke titli dil uda uda uda hai
Kahin doooor…





Titli is a song about a girl's feelings as and when she falls in love. There are irregularities that she experiences with her ownself. There is a new person in her that she faces and there is a wildness to herself. She laughs and cries for no good reason… she ventures into the unknown without even thinking about the consequences… She just feels pleased with her ownself… for no good reason and there is a certain goodness in the world, in everything that is around her… a goodness that she notices for the first time, a goodness that pleases her and the more pleased she feels, the more good things around her gets… and suddenly the girl is amidst this endless cycle making her feeling high and higher.

Sirf keh jaaun ya
Aaasmaan pe likh doo
Teri taarifon mein
Chashme Baddoor…

Because this song started off as a girl oriented song, so it is quite obvious that these lines by the guy are a fragment of her imagination.. And so is the case in the movie as well. However, we shall not really be bothered by the movie, that let be another story for another blog entry… as of now… When you start liking someone, there is no bigger reward than being liked back by the person you so dearly adore.
You tend to do anything for that person and you just wish that he also reciprocates the same feelings.

Trust me, when a girl first experiences love, there is nothing greater than being loved! Its like there is nothing more to the world than the guy of her dreams. Ofcourse, it differs from girl to girl, but in the end, all girls love being cared for. So if you care for a girl truly, make sure you tell her as often as you can.

Bann ke titli dil uda uda uda hai
Kahin doooor...
Chal ke khushboo se juda juda juda hai
Kahin doooor...

Kondal vannanaik kovalanay venney

There can be promises made just to keep her smiling… ofcourse, we all know there are certain things a man (as in a human) cant really guarantee - the future. But telling a girl that you see her whenever you think of your future, is the best way to tell her that you love her.
Most girls might not be looking for a serious relationship at first but as time progresses, they get so much involved into the relationship, that after a point of time, no gift or no form of love, greater than commitment will be the best asset for her.

There is a famous saying sort-of, a girl is very much serious when she gets into commitment but eventually loosens up, however a guy is very casual at first but if he gets serious about the girl, there can be no greater commitment than what he would display.
Most or all of us would have heard us, just we all comprehend it in our own words.
What I feel is that, initially girls put all the restrictions and conditions, but a guy who sails out all of those, is definitely the one with whom she could spend the rest of her life. All the initial restrictions were just a measure to make sure he's the one. Once she has her trust, she knows that he wont leave her for anything in the world… therefore, after she trusts him, it doesn’t matter even if he's flirting. Take it from me guys, this is the time when the girl knows you for your true self.. For your heart.. She would ofcourse not like if you flirt but she would know you belong with her forever.
Whereas guys never get serious at first… after spending a lot of time with someone when they can say that yes this is one person they cant live without, that's love!

Bhoori bhoori aankhein teri
Kankhiyon se tez teer kitne chhode
Dhaani dhaani baatein teri
Udte-phirte panchhiyon ke rukh bhi mode

That's just a thing of saying - love at first sight. I don’t really believe there is any such thing. You can definitely like a person or admire them but never love them. Loving a person includes loving them for their faults as well.
When a guy spends enough time with a girl, he comes to know of all her habits… all her small requirements… all her needs and wishes… and if just grows in love with each and everyone of them, that is when there is love!
Then there is no one beautiful than his girl… and he would give the world away for his princess…




Adhoori thi zara si
Main poori ho rahi hoon
Teri saadagi mein hoke choor
Bann ke titli dil uda uda uda hai, kahin door
Chal ke khushboo se juda juda juda hai
Kahin door…

This is the love that completes a girl… all her life she had never realized that she was missing something,
but only after the guy truly loves her, she realizes how incomplete she had been.
And God forbid, but for any reason the two separate, it leaves a void in the girl's heart…
Anyways, this song is about love, so we better not discuss any tears.

Raatein gin ke
Neendein bun ke
Cheez kya hai khwaabdaari hum ne jaani
Tere sur ka saaz ban ke
Hoti kya hai raagdaari hum ne jaani

For a girl, love is when she completely trusts the guy with all her soul… she is ready for any level of commitment with the guy and already starts weaving dreams.
Well actually, I cant think of a single girl who wouldn’t have had some dreams and aspirations to what her dream guy would be like. All girls have thought about her guy and their grand wedding before even meeting the guy. Its just that after she meets her guy, a face starts to appear and colors begin to fill up her dreams.
All the things that were dreams for all these years, start to take shape of reality!

Jo dil ko bhaa rahi hai
Woh teri shayari
Ya koi shayarana hai fitoor..

Even the small things about the guy that werent part of your initial planning, now seem to fit in perfectly.
It was like this quality is definitely a thing you wanted but you hadnt thought of it till you met the guy and then you think how hard it would be to live without it, to live without him...

Bann ke titli dil uda uda uda hai
Kahin doooor...
Chal ke khushboo se juda juda juda hai
Kahin doooor...
Haadse ye kaise, unsune se jaise
Choome adheron ko, koi Noor..
Bann ke titli dil uda uda uda hai, kahin door..

I know that the elder generation don’t really see this love and romance thing as anything good… but times change. Love can never have any ugly or bad form. It will always be the most sacred thing known to mankind.
Today's relationships allow a girl and a guy to select a life partner whom they really like. Its always better to know someone and then marry them than vice-versa. I don’t say that arranged marriages are bad, its just that when you are in love with a person, you already tend to know all about them and adjust accordingly. You don’t need to worry about going into an unknown environment.

I havent deciphered the song or done anything in context to the movie… I just wrote what I really felt whenever I heard the song… and how most of the girls would feel. It so happens that the movie has the song in exactly the same manner, but that is, I believe, a streak of good luck.
Anyways, if you have read this, I hope next time you meet your life partner, you will be able to comprehend her a little better… or you meet someone special, you will know how she might be feeling.
