Remember the timeless melody ‘mujhe neend na aaye’? The beautiful backdrop is none other than Ooty in south India. It was shot at Devil’s down. Botanical gardens and Ooty lake. Another song ‘humne ghar chhoda hai’ was shot at Pykara falls. The songs are shot so beautifully that you indeed feel like eloping to the lovely hill station!
Salman, Sanjay and Madhuri’s love triangle saga takes you to the wonderful hill station of Ooty in south India. The scenes where Sanjay Dutt paints a portrait of Madhuri sitting in a loacal restaurant overlooking her book shop reminds you of the quaint little towns in India which are beautiful, scenic and tourist-friendly. It makes you want to escape to a small town where life is not so fast!
And then there is Devdas in which Madhuri immortalized the character of Chandramukhi from Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyaya’s famous novel. So brilliant is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s direction and Binod Pradhan’s cinematography in the film, that you are instantly transported to early 20th century Calcutta. You feel like visiting Kolkata just to see how much has changed!
Dharavi may not be your ideal travel destination. But Sudhir Mishra’s film shows you why it is so enticing for the offbeat traveler – one who wants to explore the underbelly of a destination. Madhuri plays the small role Dreamgirl but the movie makes you more curious about life in this area which is famous as one of the largest slums on the planet.
