I was watching the movie 'udaan' a couple of days back--i know its not exactly a recent release, but it was one of those rare movies, i had heard so much of and had still somwhow managed to miss.
So anyhoo, the movie is splendid with some very well deserved award winning performances..The dialogues though are the ones that steal the show.
There is this one scene wherein the protagonist recites a poem to his friend, which just takes your heart away.
That particular couplet stayed with me, even long after the movie ended.Infact, so much was its impact and relevance to my life, that i googled it and have read it atleast a dozen times since then.
"Chhoti-chhoti chhitrayi yaadein
Bichhi hui hain lamhon ki lawn par.
Nange pair unpar chalte-chalte
Itni door chale aaye
Ki ab bhool gaye hain –
Joote kahan utaare the.
Aedi komal thi, jab aaye the.
Thodi si naazuk hai abhi bhi.
Aur nazuk hi rahegi
In khatti-meethi yaadon ki shararat
Jab tak inhe gudgudati rahengi.
Sach, bhool gaye hain
Ki joote kahan utaare the.
Par lagta hai,
Ab unki zaroorat nahin."
memories live forever...though somewhere down the line, how and when they were born, ceases to matter anymore!!
