Arziyan – Delhi 6: Divineness

I will not be completely wrong if I say that Sufi music has found quite a fan following amongst Bollywood music listeners. Arziyan from Delhi 6 is one such soulful Sufi rendition by Javed Ali and Kailash Kher. A.R. Rahman divinely delivers the instrumentation for this song written by Prasoon Joshi. And the picturization of this song with the Jamma Masjid in Delhi (I guess that’s the location) blends well with the song so very well, with the long shot of the people performing Namaz in front of the historical monument. For me, this is one song that transports me into an entirely different world, and for once I’ll say I don’t know if it is the lyrics, the rendition or the music that cause this effect in me. Probably, it is a collective effort of all three factors!

‘Arziyaan Sari Mein, Chehre Pe Likh Ke Laaya Hoon
Tumse Kya Mangu Mein, Tum Khud Hi Samjah Lo…’
