(I generally don’t write movie reviews and believe me that even this time I am not up to giving away any of those critical reviews about any of the movies. For those who have watched the movie, I may be kinda boring you off, my hearty apologies to them.)
While watching the recent release of Indian Film Industry, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, (by Dharma Productions, directed by Ayan Mukherjee) I gave out a sigh of relief and realization. I found out such a great resemblance of my dreams and the take on life with that of Bunny (The character played by Ranbeer Kapoor), who wishes to fly, run and fall but not to stop in life. Each day, being the adventurous one and full of thrill with blood gushing through the veins with the speed of light and the heartbeats clearly audible. Chasing one’s dreams asks for sacrifices of things which one loved or liked but not more than the dreams to explore the unseen and feel the joy of everyday being challenging and out of the league. It needs guts to turn your back to your emotions and get going on the path you have chosen for yourself.
And eventually, Naina (played by Deepika Padukone) falls in love with Bunny, the guy who showcased her uniqueness to her as the coolest trait she manifested. The best part being the scene where Naina and Bunny sits together to see the sunset in the city of Udaipur and then those magical lines said by Naina which summoned my thoughtful side at once as I heard it, which said that one cannot enjoy everything in life. You have to miss a thing for the other (Like one cannot be present at the office’s meeting and the sister’s wedding at the same time). So, why not to enjoy the beauty of the place where we already are? Bunny never had believed in marriage or in love. Living in a same place with same people all your life wasn’t acceptable to him. He thought that he would never fall in love and considered himself to be heartless. And then the heart of the heartless got caged in Naina’s love. And he after a great mental tussle realized that he wants Naina by his side more than his dreams.
The topping of the cake being the Indian-western fusion song- Kabira (voices given by Tochi Raina and Rekha Bharadwaj), enchanted my soul by its lyrics and music. The song says the selfish mind to come back home and be one with its own shadow. And it truly won over my heart. I am utterly delighted to see the repercussions of my mind so clearly and creatively being portrayed in the musical movie. How I have been thinking that I am not made for love, my destiny is with the explorations. How I thought that I hate marriage and that ordinary life led by those ordinary people. How much pain I suffered fighting my mind in love with my dreams and with the one as special as Naina in Bunny’s life, not realizing the fact that one has to miss a thing for the other and not all the riches can be grabbed in a single pocket. One has to define its priority and so have I done. 🙂
