Ek Thi Daayan
“What do you do?” asks the magician played by Emraan Hashmi. “Aapse pyaar!” replies Kalki Koechlin to the amusement of the crowd in the auditorium. “That’s why you wanna die at my hands,” retorts the magician.
The dialogues may be laughed at, but they could be loaded with meaning. The song ‘Yaaram’, featuring Emraan Hashmi, Kalki Koechlin, Huma Qureshi and Konkona Sen Sharma, has many such interesting moments. More than that, this composition by Vishal Bhardwaj grows on you with every hearing, like a witch smoothly casting her spell upon you.
The song, crooned beautifully by Sunidhi Chauhan, has Kalki strumming a guitar and crooning a lovely ditty about all the things she would do for her someone special.
That someone special is doubtlessly Emraan Hashmi who is already in a relationship with Huma Qureshi. Gulzar’s wonderful words are as poetic as poignant. Sample this: “Dhoop jo tumko lage, khol denge chhatariyaan, peechhe peechhe din bhar, le kar chalenge hum, tumhaari aaine, tumhaari diary, gaadi ki chaabhiyaan, tumhaari ainakein, tumhaara laptop, tumhaari cap, Aur apna dil, kanwaara dil.”
Soothing yet dark and premonitory, the song “Yaaram” from Ek Thi Daayan is not to be missed. Watch it below:
