Have you ever been anxious with the want of falling in love? Have you ever wanted yourself to fall in love like, right now? I have. And the ways this song resonates to me, oh.
“Ae mere dil mubarak ho, yehi to pyaar hai!” We have the classics, “teri baarishein bhigaye mujhe” and stuff which usually happens, you know. When you are in love. Except you came to realise only now that you want to congratulate your heart for finally falling for the feeling that was meant to be, since the genesis of hearts. And subtly, oh-so-subtly, while we are on it, congratulations for the pain, ‘dard mubarak’. Because inseparable.
One doesn’t seem to realise when this song finishes. While you are still lounging in the soft, at-heart, mid 90’s songs’ music, in the familiar lyrics, everything has a finality when the song does stop. Like, congratulations, it’s done now.
