This lovely little clip is from the epic Bollywood film Jodhaa Akbar starring Somanna’s fantasy wife Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan, another big Bollywood star. Musical powerhouse A. R. Rahman, from Slumdog Millionaire, composed the soundtrack for this film as well, which offers no surprise given his musical genius.
I haven’t seen Jodhaa Akbar yet, but Somanna played this song for me and I am absolutely in love with it. I find it very calming and a great antidote to stressful days. Seriously, just play it a few times on a rough day. It will soothe your soul.
This scene depicts the moments before the two protagonists wed, as the holy men sing a song to praise Allah. You can learn more about movie here. Or just add it on to your Netflix Queue like moi! Who doesn’t need a good ancient love story on a rainy weekend or ho hum weeknight?
Enjoy the lovely music and Happy Thursday!
