The Music of Water

December 11, 2011

This section of the blog is to applaud the music of Deepa Mehta’s ‘Water’.

Apart from the many instrumental pieces that form the background score of the film, there are a few songs which have been composed by A. R. Rahman with lyrics by Sukhwinder Singh and Raqeeb Alam.

The songs of the film, in context of the story and otherwise, create beautiful imagery in the listener’s mind. The music derives from the love of Radha Krishna. The themes of “preet” and “viraha” are expressedly evoked in these songs.

I was surprised that the lyrics to these songs are not really available anywhere online. So I decided to put them down here for every one to read. Enjoy!
