Asha Bhosle back with her <i>Prem Mein Tohre</i> rendition in BEGUM JAAN
Prem Mein Tohre Aise Padi Main Purana Zamana Naya Hogaya..Yeh Kya Hogaya
The trailer of BEGUM JAAN set in the pre-independence era blew away everyone’s mind and now here is the first song of the film which will strike an instant chord with the music aficionados.
Asha Bhosle who last went behind the mike for MAI in 2013, croons this song so effortlessly and her magical voice and the soulful lyrics will take you to another world. Kausar Munir’s lyrics are splendid and Anu Malik once again showcases that when it comes to composing song from a specific time he is certainly one of the best (Remember his old school composition from DUM LAGA KE HAISHA).
Prem Mein Tohre is sheer poetry and it shows us the moment of respite these girls leaving in brothel have amidst living their life as a prostitute. Playing Holi, sharing jokes, indulging in friendly banters is what these girls do like any other girl of their age indulges in.
The song also highlights the fact that these women may be trading their bodies for their livelihood but at the end of the day they are human beings like anybody else and have a heart too. Their heart is not devoid of emotion and they are capable of falling in love too.
If you are a lover of poetry and old school music then this song will definitely win your heart. And singer Asha Bhosle effortlessly proves that ‘Old Is Gold’.
