YESTERDAY ONCE MORE
Mr.Mani Ratnam’s Guru was launched yesterday. The channels are abuzz with promos.
“Tere bin” is a fine number, vintage Rahman, very gripping.
But that snippet in “Barso re” is pure magic.
A R Rahman has used a bit of a snippet from a garba to bring in that local flavor.
I used to know this garba, way back.
Way back, as in the annual concert when I was in class 6?
I still know the words, how it flows.
I hear that bit, then I’m sitting happily ensconced in the music group in a corner of that stage.
And all I see is: the lamp in the corner, the rhythmic clap of the garba, the swirling mirror and embroidery bedecked skirts, the tension of a performance
I hear that bit, then I"m not listening to the rest of "Barso re" anymore.
