“Naam Ada Likhna” – in appreciation of a brilliant song!

I had shared my views on this small (almost forgotten?) film, Yahaan, long back.

One song of the film, “Naam Ada Likhna” is breathtakingly beautiful. Everything about the song is outstanding – the music, the lyrics, the emotions of the two stars, Minisha Lamba and Jimmy Shergill, but most importantly, the photography.

Here’s the song – check it out:

If you see the whole thing, I am sure you will appreciate what I am saying. But in case you did not play the whole song, let me show you a few striking images from the song. Well, to tell you the fact, the entire film has been shot brilliantly, and the camerawork is absolutely awesome. The song is just a sampling.. so here you go:

Light and shadow play

The Shikara, the trees, the water, the reflection...

Lying down in the Shikara, the sun breaking through from within the trees and the branches..

The sepia tone, the wooden bridge, the depth.. beautiful..

Love.. and happiness..

A light in the background, shadows.. a woman in love..

The sepia again, the smile, happiness.. nay, bliss..

The light from the back, giving a silhouette feel.. happiness on the face

In the valley, with the hills and the sky behind..and togetherness..and love!

More play with light and shadows..

I love the whole effect.. the song has a mesmerizing effect. I want to keep seeing it. And I want to take a trip to the mountains.

What do you think??
