Tum dil ki dhadkan mein rehte ho, tum rehte ho
Meri in saanson se kehte ho, kehte ho
Baahon mein aajao, sapnon mein kho jaao
Tum dil ki dhadkan mein rehte ho, rehte ho
A boy from a humble background (Sunil Shetty) meets a rich girl (Shilpa Shetty), their eyes meet and sparkle together, and then love enters their life. Alas! Love is accompanied by obstacles put in by the society. The boy has no one but the girl. The girl, although has many friends and family, finds her entire world in this poor guy who loves her truly, deeply, madly.
This song, from the movie Dhadkan (2000), sounds like a typical early 1990’s song. It was a comeback album for the music director duo Nadeem-Shravan after their long sabbatical. The music was a big hit amongst the masses and this particular song became like a love anthem at that time.
Sung by Abhijeet and Alka Yagnik (although she just hums and mouths a few dialogues), this is a happy version of this song. The sad version is sung by Kumar Sanu. This song, like many other songs of the album, contains dialogues. The lyrics are by Sameer and he does a good job in all the songs. The lyrics have a different flavor to them, every song has depth and meaning and these are not typical Sameer lyrics, mind you.
The girl, one day, asks the boy that why does he love her so much? To which the boy expresses his feelings in such an emotional manner that it tugs at your heartstrings. He says that his girl is his entire world, she lives in his every heartbeat and as if says to his breath to encapsulate her in his arms and forget what is around and live a dream which is theirs.
Deewano sa haal hua, humko unse pyaar hua
Dheere se woh paas aaye, chupke se izhaar hua
Ab naa kisise darna hai, sang jeena marna hai
Baahon mein aajao, sapnon mein khojaao
He says, that he has become crazy the moment he fell in love with her. She tiptoed into his heart and he confessed his love without saying a single word. That very love has made him fearless, that confession has made him strong and he is not afraid of anyone and that he is eager to live with her and die for her.
Duniyaa ne thukraaya hai,
Bas tumne apnaaya hai
Dil ko kitna chain milaa,
Sabne itna sataaya hai
Apna hai ek sapna, ek tu hi ho apna
When the world had rejected him it was she who had welcomed him in her arms. He had found solace in her embrace whereas everyone else had just disowned him. His only dream now is to be with her. He now needs no one else, she alone is enough for him, forever.
These love birds, however, are separated and the girl gets married to someone else and leaves the boy devastated. During this time, he remembers the moments he had spent with her and drowns himself in sorrow. After many years (after becoming rich) he comes face to face with her and expresses that he wants to win her back and waits for her to reciprocate his feelings again.
Kuchh na kaho chup hi raho
Dekho dhadkan kehti hai
Laut aaya hai meet mera
Ankhiyon se nadiya behti hai
Kaise guzre ye din poochho na tere bin
She finally arrives to tell him her answer, but he asks her not to speak and let the heart beat. He thinks that his love has returned to him and his eyes have become moist with the feeling and he says that it was very difficult to live apart for so many years, but now the time has come to reunite.
The sad version, which is sung by Kumar Sanu, has a definite melancholic feel to it; but it is more of an eagerness which comes across in his voice and that is exactly what is shown in the movie too. Sunil Shetty is eager to know Shilpa Shetty’s answer and that is the time he is singing this version of the song.
Now whether she says yes or no is another story, but the songs are a treat to hear. Enjoy both these songs and do let us know which one you liked the most!
