REALLY, LIFE IN A METRO's songs are having such thing, that whenver u listen to them , you have only one picture on mind...that s Mumbai. So much is the effect of the movie and the music. Other one song is 'Mann tu talbat' from 'Superstar' in movie, it is shot at Marine drive[only a bit of portion] with jumping waves at sea wall....you just oughta sing that song, when u walk on the sea facing wall......lastly..i will never forget singing 'Laree Chhoti...' form ek chalis ki last local....whenver i see a Mumbai Local Train. So suitable.

  1. Cudnt have described the charm and life of Mumbia in any better way!!! It takes me there...like walking rite next to you and experiencing it.

    You know you're good in describing (giving words to) your feelings & emotions. Then why do you some times dont do justice to yourself by saying your point out loud in front of us (every one)???
