Rock On

Woohoo!

OK before we start, i KNOW it’s a Youtube video but i made it, so yeah. Sorry about that, we haven’t upgraded yet, but will consider it in the future. We don’t really make a lot of videos ourselves so you know…ANYWAY!

We’re just getting bigger and better. It took me three hours to make this, but i think the end result is almost better than what i expected!
The song is from the movie Rock On, 2008, and the song is called Socha Hai, which means ‘have you ever thought…’. It’s a really nice song, sung by Farhan Akhtar and written by Javed Akhtar. The video isn’t much (at all) but here it goes…

OK so…hmm, i’m not the best at it, infact i’m no good, but i’m going to try translate the lyrics-all by myself, with no help from the internet or anyone else at all whatsoever-from Hindi to English!! :O And like i said i’m NO GOOD  at this so if it is wrong (which it’s bound to be) feel free to correct me. Although i did  get the Hindi lyrics from lyricsmasti.com. 😛

Asmaan hai nilaa kyun, paani geela geela kyun
Why is the sky blue
Gol kyun hai zameen?
Why is the Earth round
Silk mein hai narmeen kyun?
Why is silk soft
Aag mein hai garmi kyun?
Why is fire hot
Do aur do paanch kyun nahin?
Why  does 2+2 not make 5

Ped ho gaye kam kyun, teen hai yeh mausam kyun
Why are the trees decreasing (or disappearing would sound better?)
Chaand do kyun nahin?
Why aren’t there two moons?
Duniye mein hain jung kyun?
Why is there war in the world?
Behta hai laal rang kyun
Why does the colour red flow (i think that refers to blood)
Sarhadain hain kyun har kahin?
Why are there boundaries everywhere?


Socha hai…
Have you ever thought…
Yeh tumne kya kabhi
About it
Socha hai…
Have you ever thought…
Ke hai yeh kya sabhi
What is everything
Socha hai…
Have you ever thought...
Socha nahin to socho abhi
If you haven’t then think about it now

Behti kyun hai har nadi?
Why does every river flow?
Hoti kya roshini
What is light?
Barf girti hai kyun?
Why does snow fall?

Dost kyun hai ruth te?
Why do friends get angry?
Taare kyun hai toot te
Why do stars fall (shooting star)
Baadlon mein bijli hai kyun?
Why is there lightning?


Socha hai…
Have you ever thought…
Yeh tumne kya kabhi
About it
Socha hai…
Have you ever thought…
Ke hai yeh kya sabhi
What is everything
Socha hai…
Have you ever thought...
Socha nahin to socho abhi
If you haven’t then think about it now

Sanaata sunai nahin deta
You can’t hear silence
Aur hawaaein dikhai nahin deti

And you can’t see the wind
Socha hai kya kabhi hota hai ye kyun?
Have you ever thought why that happens?

Yeaa… ohzaa…

Wow, alright, i did horribly at this, and i’m sorry about that and if i’ve made a mistake please correct me because unless you do i’ll never know. I just feel like i’ve screwed up a really nice song. hehe. sorry about the REALLY trash translation. 😛

The movie itself was awesome, in my opinion, i loved it. It had a great theme and it was presented well. Farhan Akhtar and Prachi Desai did a commendable job, and there was no better way of making an entry into Bollywood for them. The story line went something like this; Aditya Shroff, a bohemian wild boy from Delhi who left the comforts of his parents home to chase his dream of becoming a singer in a rock band. He is the lead singer of Magik
Joe Masceranous, an Idealist. He hails from a family of failed musicians and hence feels the pressure of not succumbing to the legacy. A man of few words and lets his guitar do the talking. He is the lead guitarist of the band.
Kedar Zaveri, prefers to be known as KD Killer Drummer. On stage it may look like he is slamming those drums with a vengeance but actually, hes only just breathing. He is the heart of Magik.
Rob Nancy, the laid back quiet fence sitter of the band.. Just to experience the moment of his creation was to be in the presence of something truly ethereal.
This story about the 4 young friends who put together the greatest band this country had ever seen but never made it.
Years later fate conspires to bring them together again and sets them on a journey back to where they left off. A soul searching pilgrimage into their past.
Just like an old Indian saying, if one dies without fulfilling a cherished dream he will be re-born to have another shot at it.
The 4 of them came from different walks of life but when they jammed together they were One.
If Aditya was the mind then Joe was the will, Kd the heart and Rob the soul
Together they were Pure Magik.

I have a bit to learn about reviewing movies without giving away the most important bits, so i just copy pasted this summary from imdb.com. Yes, i know i’m lazy and before one of you point it out, i’ll do it myself. 🙂 But anyway, i hope you check this movie out because it was one of those movies that hit my top 10 list from the very start. 🙂
