Dil Se

There are very few instances when a movie stays on in some hidden corner of your memory and a sudden screening in the late night TV conjures up memories of a school in the heart of Calcutta, discussions in the Tiffin breaks and the uncontrollable Soumadri Sengupta and Surodeep Mukherjee pointing their fingers at an unsuspecting me, “You can never appreciate the passion of Dil Se.”

We have travelled a long way since then, but I still feel that this is one movie which deserves its own place in the Hindi Cinema history. But even if everything fades, the haunting melodies of “Aye ajnabi” will play on.
