Lucky people find love, and the few chosen ones find true love. It is an out of the world experience when one finds it and we feel like showing the world and yelling at the top of our voice that we are happy and in love. There’s no one like the beloved in this universe and no one will ever be…
Naa woh akhiyan ruhani kahin
Naa woh chehra noorani kahin
Kahin dil wali baatein bhi na
Naa woh sajri jawani kahin
Jag ghoomeya thaare jaisa naa koi…
I did not find those soulful eyes
I did not find that illuminated face anywhere
Neither did I find the conversations of one heart with another
Nor did I see a youthful beauty anywhere
I have wandered in the entire world
But I failed to find someone like you, there’s no one like you..
The strumming guitar plays with the strings of the heart and then it sings the ballads for the beloved. Salman’s acting in the movie and this song is amazing. The way he smiles coyly remembering the moments spent with his lady (Anushka Sharma), his little dance right in the middle of the audience, the way he smiles; it reminds us of the Prem-like charm which cast a spell on the audience.
The song takes us back and forth from the jam-packed pub where Sultan (Salman Khan) is singing this song to the lanes of a village and the memories of love, passion and much more.
Naa toh hansna rumani kahin
Naa toh khushboo suhani kahin
Naa woh rangli adaayein dekhin
Naa woh pyari si naadani kahin
Jaisi tu hai waisi rehna
Jag ghoomeya thaare jaisa naa koi
I couldn’t find that shy, lovely smile
I couldn’t find anything that smelt as pure as you
No one could enchant me with their charm as you
No one had that innocence as you have
Please remain the way you are my love
Because I have wandered the world and there’s no one like you
Baarishon ke mausamo ki bheegi hariyali tu
Sardiyon mein gaalon pe jo aati hai woh laali tu
Raaton ka sukoon bhi hai, subah ki Azaan hai
Chaahaton ki chaadaron mein
Maine hai sambhali tu
Kahin aag jaise jalti hai, bane barkha ka paani kahin
Kabhi mann jaana chupke se, yoon hi apni chalani kahin
Jaisi tu hai waisi rehna..
You are like the young, fresh, leaves in the rainy season
You are like the blush on the cheeks in a bashful winter
You are like the peace one feels at night and also like the early morning prayer
You are safe in my embrace, wrapped around in the sheets of my love
Sometimes you are like the burning fire, fierce!
Sometimes you are like the cool rainwater, calm
Sometimes I am able to charm you easily, but sometimes you have it your own way
Please remain the way you are, my love..
Rahat Fateh Ali Khan croons this romantic number for Vishal-Shekhar. Lyrics are penned by the very talented Irshad Kamil. The Punjabi lyrics and the music take us to the little villages of the North where one can imagine the “sarson ke khet” and “thandi purvahi” and the love blossoming between two hearts, their struggles, their promises, their story.
Apne naseebon mein ya honsale ki baaton mein
Sukhon aur dukhon wali saari saughaton mein
Sang tujhe rakhna hai, tune sang rehna
Meri duniya mein bhi, mere jazbaaton mein
Teri milti nishani kahin
Jo hai sabko dikhani kahin
Tu toh jaanti hai marke bhi
Mujhe aati hai nibhani kahin
Woh hi karna jo hai kehna
In our fates or in the path of courage
In the little joys and sorrows of life
I want you by my side always, and you have to be with me
In my world and in my feelings, I find your traces somewhere, like a memento
Which I want to flaunt everywhere
You know that even if I die, I know how to fulfil my promises
I believe in keeping my word
Jag ghoomeya thaare jaisa naa koi
I have wandered the entire world..
But couldn’t find anyone like you, my love
There’s no one like you…
