Fine review. Loved the music, more than that the lyrics and your review. However, won't agree with George that this the album of the year.

A word about Lihaf. Quilt is Taqia. Lihaf is cover of that Quilt.

Corrigendum. Quilt is Razai.

Lihaf is essentially used for a cover( for eg of Taqia, Quilt so on so forth).

Fantabulous album.

One minor correction regarding footnote No. 4:

The "O Maajhi Re..." interlude was in the song " Tu Mere Paas Bhi Hai..."

Thanks for the correction. It was indeed "Tu mere paas bhi hai". Correction applied

Thanks for the meaning of Lihaaf. BTW, does Ghilaaf (in urdu) mean a cotton sheet to cover the corpse of a saint ?

Getting to understand Gulzar is an effort in itselg and well worth it, if I may add !!

Ramanand said...

I think "Gilaaf" is a pillow cover. Not sure where I read that, though.

Very interesting review. I have read a review of Inam ul Rehman and that one also a very interesting review. And i have gone to see this movie after read his Omkara Review. In fact after read this paragraph; Vishal has succeeded in giving the film the Indian look without taking anything away from the play. Rustic setting, raunchy music, riveting climax, Omkara is truly head and shoulders above the usual potboilers. The treatment meted is original. The helplessness of Omkara; the innocence of Dolly; the jealousy, ambition and greed of Langda all makes you thing how beautifully Shakespeare has weaved human emotions.

Could somebody Please explain me that in this song gilaaf meaning sheet makes more sense or gilaaf meaning quilt cover make more sense.

What it seems to be more appropriate in this song to say that we do not have either a sheet or a quilt OR they are saying if we do not have a quilt at least its cover would have been there ?
