Lovely lines. Nice voiceover at the start of Parineeta.

Riksho ka...traamo ka...coffee house ki shaamo ka...shaher...parivartan ke prayaas ka...kalibadi ke vishwas ka...shaher...rasgulle ki mithaas ka...puchke ke teekhe ehsaas ka...shaher....football ke uchaal ka...bowbazaar ke bhuchaal ka...shaher...add..do ki bahes ka...siyasat ki tahes-nahes ka...shaher...pyaar ke dhai aakher ka...Lolita aur Shekhar ka....shaher...

Amitabh Bachchan rocks even in a 2-minute voiceover.

An English translation of the above:

Circa 1962. Calcutta. City of (hand-pulled) rickshaws, trams, and evenings in coffee houses. City swirling in the winds of change while keeping the faith. City of the sweetness of Rasgullas and the spicy feeling of Puchkas. City of football and the bylanes of BowBazaar. City of friendly roadside discussions and of political rumblings. City of letters of love. City of Lolita and Shekhar.

Beautiful Vidya Balan Vidya Balan looks so beautiful as Lolita. She speaks with her eyes. She's got magical looks.
