He alights down from the 8:30 pm local train in Mumbai everyday, he looks tired and forlorn at the end of a hectic day. He carries his laptop bag & like a graceful dancer moves through the crowd, his regular practice of travelling in the local trains over the past few years has made him more than efficient at travelling in the “Lifeline of Mumbai” , the local trains.
He has an exasperated look on his face and its almost become synonymous with the way his life has become of late, he hardly has a life of his own apart from work, where he has to do the boss’ bidding in office and sometimes even outside. A story of a man , a “common man” in Mumbai, which I am sure you might relate to as well & he is no different from the rest of us.
He is stuck in the monotony of his own life which has made his life as dull as dishwater. He is Suresh Sharma, not that the name matters as you could replace replace Suresh’s name with any other Mumbaikar from the local trains and situation could still be the same.
Fast forward it to the weekend & you might be inclined to think that it might be a different scene as its a Friday which might serve as an incentive to atleast look happy on a Friday evening, but NO!
He looks the same on this wonderful Friday Evening and is navigating through the usual crowd but stops in his tracks suddenly as a cool looking guy exuberating with freshness and energy blocks his path. He looks up and notices a familiar face, Its Allu Arjun! Suresh, stares at the star in disbelief but Allu Arjun just keeps smiling his infectious smile & breaks into his signature sensational moves, but wait there’s no music to be heard anywhere.
Suresh keeps on staring at what the star is doing & so do his fellow train travelers and then out of nowhere one of the most energetic voices of the bollywood industry, Anushka Manchanda, starts singing her latest number “Dance Basanti”
The air has suddenly turned into that of a celebration and people go into a reverie, an instant burst of freshness grips them and people forget their woes and worries by just the energy exuberated by the two stars Allu Arjun & Anushka Manchanda.
Suresh too cannot stop himself from joining the group of people who have started dancing and starts enjoying the music with the dance, who wouldn’t?
Its these small things which actually make you live like a free spirit & feel fresh everyday which is amply showcased by just doing a little jig or singing a song to feel fresh and alive which shows that any situation however disappointing could come alive and be energised by Anushka’s magical voice & by Allu Arjun’s terrific dance moves.
