Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2 aired today and we are reeling under lot of ‘emotional atyaachar’! I mean, c’mon so much good happened in those 56 minutes, which only means one thing – REAL SHIT is about to happen! The nightwalkers are at the doorsteps of Winterfell, literally. This episode was all about the lull before the storm, the white storm. About unspoken love, anger, anguish and everything in between. But the desi me couldn’t help but notice that some awesome Bollywood numbers will fit so well in this saga. Since, HBO is already done shooting the finale, lemme give you my playlist of songs that were playing in my head as I watched the episode 2.
1: Ae jaate hue lamhon
This classic from 1997 war movie ‘Border’ fits so well, isn’t it? The song is all about living the last moments as the hero bids adieu to love of his life. This could have been the theme of this episode. Those forlorn looks interspersed with kiss between Missandei and Grey Worm will sadden you. Grab a tissue!
2: Tere mere beech mein kaisa hai ye bandhan anjana
Remember Ek Duuje Ke Liye? This haunting melody sung by Lata Mangeshkar and SP Balasubramaniam goes so well with that scene when Jon Snow tells her new ‘lover’ Daenerys Targaryen that he his Aegon Targaryen!
3: Kitni baatein kehne ki hai
Who would have thought this mesmerising ‘Lakshya’ song will gel with Game of Thrones? Well, as it seems it does. Brienne of Tarth seems to singing this song to Jamie in that heart-touching knighthood scene. I am not crying, you are crying!!
4: Khali bali ho gaya hai dil duniya se mera
Tormund Giantsbane’s entry song the moment he asks Jon Snow ‘The big woman is still here?’ The man has got his priorities right!
5: Jiska mujhe tha intezaar
Well, well, well! Arya Stark DID it!!!!!! Twitter is losing it and we all know why! She was a kid, but guys ‘bachhe bade ho jate hain’ and this song is just the thing on this Stark gal’s mind, ahem!
