Hum Hai Anari

Sab kuchh seekha humne na seekhi hoshiyari
Sab kuchh seekha humne na seekhi hoshiyari
Sach hai duniya waalon ke hum hain anaadi

Duniya ne kitna samjhaya
Kaun hai apna kaun paraaya
Phir bhi dil ki chot chupa kar
Humne aapka dil behlaaya
Khud hi mar mitne ki ye zid hai humari
Khud hi mar mitne ki ye zid hai humari
Sach hai duniya waalon ke hum hain anaadi

Dil ka chaman ujadte dekha
Pyaar ka rang utarte dekha
Humne har jeene waale ko
Dhan daulat pe marte dekha
Dil pe marne waale marenge bhikhari
Dil pe marne waale marenge bhikhari
Sach hai duniya waalon ke hum hain anaadi

Asli nakli chehre dekhe
Dil pe sau sau pehre dekhe
Mere dukhte dil se poochho
Kya kya khwaab sunehare dekhe
Toota jis taare pe nazar thi hamari
Toota jis taare pe nazar thi hamari

Sab kuchh seekha humne na seekhi hoshiyari
Sach hai duniya waalon ke hum hain anaadi

Hoshwalon Ko Khabar Kya Bekhudi Kya Cheez Hai

One lazy Sunday afternoon, I was listening to Jagjit Singh on my comp and reading a book when a friend walked into my room and exclaimed “Yaaru satt hogidaare?(kaun mar gaya? / Who died?) and I just couldn’t stop laughing at her statement.

She thought, why else would someone want to listen to those sad song and all I could say was “Hoshwalon Ko Khabar Kya, Bekhudi Kya Cheez Hai”.
Only the ones who could loose themselves in that mersmerizing voice understood the magic. His voice had that amazing quality that could transport you to a completely different surreal world.
An experience that would leave you wanting for more.

If my friend were to ask the same question today Alas! it is Jagjit Singh who is no more. It happens to be his birthday today, the 8th of Feb.
Of the numerous ghazals and melodious songs a few of my favorites are
‘Hoton se Chulo tum’ , ‘Tum itna jo muskura ho’, ‘Besabab baat badhaane ki zaroorat kya hai,hum khafa kab the manaane ki zaroorat kya hai’, ‘tum ko dekha toh yeh khayal aaya’, ‘Hoshwalon ko khabar kya’ and many more.

Happy Birthday Jagjit Singh!
You still live through your songs. Your magical voice will continue to keep echoing in the rooms of your innumerable fans for many many years to come.

I Hate Luv Storys

For a movie buff like me  not having watched a movie in the multiplex for nearly 2 months was a disturbing fact. When my rommie planned for the movie “I Hate Luv Storys” I simply loved the idea. And the money and effort was totally not worth it 😐 . The only good thing about the movie are the songs.

I thought watching Imran Khan and Sonam Kapoor would be worth it. Though both look great individually, there is no chemistry between them. The magic they speak about in the movie is missing from the movie, story and the performances.  There is nothing new in the story and it looked like the makers wanted to make a spoof of all Yash Chopra and Karan Johar movies in this one movie itself. Bruna could have been better utilised. You end up feeling bad for Sameer Dattani. While the first half was ok, second half was a disaster and we were just waiting for the movie to finish. Few of my friends happen to write nice things abt the movie in FB. Don’t know why. So you may also like it but this is just a word of caution in case you plan to watch the movie.

Looks like wait for a good Bollywood movie is not getting over so soon.
