Hey everyone, I hope you guys had a great week.. Mine was usual, just trying to study for comps.. Anyway, I don’t think I have told you that I absolutely love happy wedding songs.. the bollywood songs with all the glitz and glamor!! 😛 There are 3 new songs that came out in the last one year that I liked and listen to quite often! The first is Rolla pae gaya from Patiala House, I like the lyrics, the chemistry between Anushka Sharma and Akshay Kumar, and I am in love with her clothes in this song! 🙂 The second is Aiven Aiven lut gaya from Band Bajaa Baraat- this is a fun song and I liked this movie a lot! The song is a bit ‘chichhora’ in typical Delhi language, but I like the beats and the entire idea! The third is Gal Mithi Mithi Bol from Aisha – this is a nice song, I like the lyrics, the dance sequence, the beats, and Abhay Deol, but this movie was a torture. Sonam Kapoor was horrible in this movie and I hated it! Anyway, I hope you like these songs! Enjoy!! 🙂
When you saw the videos for these songs, did you notice the difference in these songs? While the first two are all bright and colorful, the third one has minimal colors. While Gal mithi mithi bol is shot in an elite Delhi wedding, aiven aiven lut gaya is totally opposite – a low budget jhatak matak shaadi.. But I like rolla pae gaya the best for the music, the clothes, etc! By the way, what kind of wedding did you have? Or want to have?
When I was a teenager and thought of marriage, I always wanted a grand Punjabi traditional wedding.. But now, I am not that interested in that.. I know everyone has their own opinion and dreams, but I think its reckless to spend so much money on a single night. And now that I understand the meaning of traditions in Hindu weddings, I don’t really like it. Things like ‘kanya-daan’, ‘saat vachan’, ‘vidaai’, etc are all so biased.. Its amazing how much your attitude changes when you understand and think about all these traditions.. I will write another post about why I think these traditions are biased sometime later! Anyway, I think I would want to have a registered marriage during the day, followed by a small reception where the couple exchanges vows they write on their own! Sometimes, I still feel that I would still long for the grand Indian wedding, but then you have to sacrifice certain wishes to stand by your principles. And for me, this situation falls into that category! Now a million dollar question is how my family, the guy, and his family would feel about all this! We’ll see when we get there! 🙂
By the way, what do you think about all this?
