Finally the rains are¬†here.. A cuppa coffee.. my rain playlist and the blog… I am a happy soul ūüôā

I just thought of sharing with you all my favorite rain songs.. Here they are.. Put on your earplugs and enjoy the raindrops ūüôā

In no particular order :

1. “Hum Tum‚ÄĚ from Hum Tum (2004)

Aankhon Mein Humko Utarne Do Zara..
Baahon Mein Humko Pighalne Do Zara..

2. This is my all time favourite : “Sawan Barse tarse Dil”¬†from Dahek (1999)
Ek hasina idhar dekho kaisee bechain hai,
Raste par lage kaise usake do nain hai..
Sach puchhiye toh mere yar, dono key dil beikhtiyar,
Beikhtiyar… hain pehli bar… pehli bahar mein….

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLQ3_TJ81oQ

3. This is for the sad souls : “Lagi Aaj sawan ki phir woh jhadi hai” from Chandni (1989)

Kuch aise hi din teh woh jab hum miley the..
chaman mein nahin phool dil mein khiley the..
wohi toh hai mausam magar rut nahin woh..
mere sath barsat bhi roh padhi hai

4. “Baadal yun garajta hai” from Betaab (1983)

Tum Baitho Us Paar, Ham Baithen Is Paar..
Aao Apane Bich Banaa Lein Hum Koi Deewaar..

5. “Boondon ke moti” from Wake up Sid (2009)

Yun ki tai kar na paaun re
Dil ki baat main hawa ke zariye pahunchaaun re
Ya khud hawa pe chal ke aaun re?
Tumse pyaar hai yeh khul ke jinn mein keh paaun re
Lafz woh kahan se laaun re??

I hear this and I cry.. everytime..

Paas aaye..
Dooriyaan phir bhi kam naa hui
Ek adhuri si hamari kahani rahi
Aasmaan ko zameen, ye zaroori nahi
Jaa mile.. jaa mile..
Ishq saccha wahi
Jisko milti nahi manzilein.. manzilein.. (is this true?)

Rang the, noor tha
Jab kareeb tu tha
Ek jannat sa tha, yeh jahaan
Waqt ki ret pe kuch mere naam sa
Likh ke chhod gaya tu kahaan

Hamari adhuri kahani..

Khushbuon se teri yunhi takra gaye
Chalte chalte dekho na hum kahaan aa gaye

Jannatein agar yahin
Tu dikhe kyon nahin
Chaand suraj sabhi hai yahaan
Intezar tera sadiyon se kar raha
Pyaasi baithi hai kab se yahaan

Humari adhoori kahaani

Pyaas ka ye safar khatam ho jayega
Kuch adhura sa jo tha poora ho jayega

Jhuk gaya aasmaan
Mill gaye do jahaan
Har taraf hai milan ka samaa
Doliya hain saji, khushbuein har kahin
Padhne aaya Khuda khud yahaan..

Hamari adhuri kahani

Mann tu talbat #NowPlaying

This song is from the movie Superstar starring Kunal Khemu..

I really liked this movie, though it didn’t really do great on box-office..

But this Song..

I still remember, the first time I hear it.. I played it on loop for 25 times.. till I was told I’ll be thrown out of the room if I didn’t change the song..

Listening to it now, makes me wanna cry for some reason…

It’s the song.. It makes me wait for rains.. I don’t know why..

Anyways, Do listen to it..

 

Tere bina ji na pau, sung tere ji na pau
Hoke juda abb hum milen, abb na kabhi honge judaa
Abb kya kahun isake siwa
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat

Vey nakh inti, vey nakh inti
Ye nur al hai, vey nakh inti
Tyali haye dhi, takh li aluni, ukhne vele genvhi, vift ki
Abb kya kahun isake siwa
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat

Tere bina ji na pau, sung tere ji na pau
Tere bina ji na pau, sung tere ji na pau
Hoke juda abb hum milen, abb na kabhi honge judaa
Abb kya kahun isake siwa
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat
Oh my love, i have the key in love
I will be there for u, always be there for u
Abb mil gaye lo phir se hum, subahon ne phir chumen kadam
Kudrat ne haatho se likhe, khud rishte yeh janmo janam
Abb mil gaye lo phir se hum, subahon ne phir chumen kadam
Kudrat ne haatho se likhe, khud rishte yeh janmo janam
Mil kar rahenge hum yu sada
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat
Oh my love, i have the key in love
I will be there for u, always be there for u
Vey nakh inti, vey nakh inti  ye nur al hai, vey nakh inti
Tyali haye dhi, takh li aluni, ukhne vele genvhi, vift ki
Dil ke varat pe hai likha, har lafz tere pyaar ka
Yeh waqt chaaha bhahut, lekin na phir bhi mit saka
Dil ke varat pe hai likha, har lafz tere pyaar ka
Yeh waqt chaaha bhahut, lekin na phir bhi mit saka
Har lamha ye kehne laga
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat
Man tu talbat, tu man talbat
Oh my love, i have the key in love
I will be there for u, always be there for u.

S for Songs #AtoZChallenge

Songs..

I am one of the most filmy persons ever !

At times (read : always) I wish that there were songs playing in background..

Some songs speak my heart out.. and some make me realise what my heart actually wants to say..

So, if at all.. my life did have background music.. then.. how would it be..

uhm…

**drum rolls**

The song of love at first..or whatever number sight :- Kabhi Kabhi mere dil mein.. ki jaise mujhko banaya gaya hai tere liye..

Song of Being in Love :- Offo !!!

Dil ka dimaag se
Jhagda lagaaya kise
Peechhe ke darwaaze se ae..
Dabe paanv aaya kaise
Thoda sa kameena
Thoda bechara hai
Ishq bhoot sahi par yeh
Bhoot bada hi pyaara hai……

Or mayb..

Jeene ke ishaare mil gaye….

Meri Zindagi Main Teri Baarish Kya Hui
Mere Raste Darya Bane Behne lage…

Meri Karvaton Ko Tune Aake Kya Chhua
Kahin Khwab Neendon Ki Gali Rehne lage…

Song to sing to him..

On Happy Days : Tum Mile.. toh mil gaya .. ye jahan..

On Romantic Days : Mann mast magan.. bas tera naam dohraye..

On Fighting Days : Musu Musu haasi.. maana humse ho gayi.. ek choti si khata :p

On days of love – like u meant it : Jo tu mera humdard hai.. laut aaungi tere paas yahan.. waada hai mera.. mar bhi jaoon kahin..

Song while hugging¬†(sad one, though): Lag jaa gale.. humko mili hai aaj..ye ghadiyan naseeb se ūüôā

Song while making out (Ahem..) : 

Jal Jal ke dhuan..¬†Aaj Raat Ko Hosh Ki Hain Jaroorat Kaha –¬†Aaj Sharam Se Koi Kehde Na aaye Yaha..

Song before separation :  Tujhse juda hokar mujhe door jana hai.. pal bhar ki judai.. phir laut aana hai..

Song during moment of separation (This one being my favorite) : Ye dooriyaan.. tera mujhe kar jaati hai dooriyan..

Song when missing each other : Banjar hai sab Banjar hai.. teri ek talash ko dekh piya..hum kitne saare kos chale..

Song when coming together..¬†Manchala… Manchala.. teri or..

My happy ending Song :¬†DDLJ Music… lalalala / Jaane tu ya jaane na.. ending scen.. kahin toh.. UFF !!

 

What say? Whats your song??

Now Playing : Naam Adaa likhna (Yahaan)

Written by the brilliant Gulzar, Naam Adaa Likhna is one of the truly romantic songs written in the last few years. Written for the Minissha Lamba & Jimmy Shergill starrer Yahaan, the song with its lovely visuals gets a beautiful feel of the love between the characters.

This one of the few songs that really calms me down when I listen to it and always puts a smile on my face…
This is a song of young love, the kind that fills hearts with hope, against all odds….

Lyrics & Translation:

Puche Jo Koi Meri Nishaani
Rang Hina Likhna
Gore Badan Pe
Ungli Se Mera Naam Ada Likhna

Kabhi Kabhi Aas Paas Chand Rehta Hai
Kabhi Kabhi Aas Paas Shaam Rehti Hai

Aau To Subha Jao To
Mera Naam Saba Likhna
Burf Pade To Burf Pe
Mera Naam Dua Likhna

Zara Zara Aag Vaag Pass Rehti Hai
Zara Zara Kangde Ke Aanch Rehti Hai


Jab Tum Haste Ho, Din Ho Jata Hai
Tum Gale Lage Toh, Din So Jata Hai

Doli Uthaye Ayega Din To
Pass Betha Lena
Kal Jo Mile To mathe Mein Mere
Suraj Uga Dena

Kabhi Kabhi Aas Paas Dhup Rehegi
Kabhi Kabhi Aas Pass Rang Renhege

Puche Jo Koi Meri Nishaani
Rang Hina Likhna
Gore Badan Pe
Ungli Se Mera Naam Ada Likhna

 

Translation for people who do not understand Hindi – Enjoy !!

If they ask you my identity, say-
I am the colour of Henna
As traced by your fingertips on my fair body
I am spelt Grace

Tell them the moon hovers around me at times
And at times I am wrapped in the dusk of the evening
Write down my name as morning, when i arrive
Put it down as night when I leave
And when the snowflakes begin to fall
Scribble my name on the fallen snow as prayer
Tell them, there’s the blaze of fire about her
and at times, the comforting glow of the kangri

When you laugh, the day fills up with sunshine
And when you embrace me, the day lulls itself to sleep

And when the day comes as a newly-wed in a palanquin
take my hand and make me sit next to you
and if you find tomorrow
make it sprout the sun from my forehead

If they ask you my identity, say ‚Äď
I am Henna
Tell them the sun shines around me at times
And at times I’m enveloped in colours of myriad hues…

25 Bollywood movies you should watch before you turn 25

http://www.scoopwhoop.com/entertainment/25-must-watch-bollywood-movies/?ref=social&type=fb&b=0

Life in India is a lot like our cinema. It begins with no certain plot, has its moments of dance and drama, grows with you but definitely has a lot of sensible teachings along the way. And then life reaches a point where you stop and reflect on your journey. ¬†25 is that year, we say! You may or may not have accomplished much by then, but that’s alright, you must have watched some really good cinema!

Here’s a list of 25 Bollywood¬†movies you should watch before you turn¬†25, because each one of them has a lesson for you:

1. Lakshya

Being aimless in life and careless about career is a phase everyone goes through. Having a quarter-life crisis is not so¬†bad either. However, the magic lies in waking up at the right time. Forget everyone else, the real deal is to surprise yourself with your own capabilities and to do something that you yourself never expected to do. After all, this is what ‘Lakshya’ taught us. To¬†leave one life and live the other!

2. Dil Chahta Hai

There are times when you want the clock to stop. There are times when you don’t want to leave a place. There are times when everything just feels right about the company that you have. Such is the gravity of friendship in youth. You don’t want to grow old at all. But unfortunately, time waits for no one. ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ is a coming-of-age story which remains an essential part of everyone’s life, simply because it holds true no matter how many times we watch it.

3. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

25 is an¬†age when you have lived a quarter of your life, which is more than¬†enough¬†to have explored the world. But what have we actually seen until now? Did we ever quit our jobs, switch off our phones, leave¬†all tensions behind and just travel? No. We’ve¬†only been planning of this while life passed us by? This ‘my bwoy’ is a serious problem! We live just once but die everyday at the hands of our mundane lives. May be, it’s time to explore the unexplored and let the road decide our destination.

4. 3 Idiots

However embarrassing it sounds, we still have to rack our brains to remember something as simple as the multiples of 12! And this is the biggest flaw in our educational system. We study to learn and not to understand. ‘3 Idiots’ makes us laugh at our own shortcomings, at the Indian education system which is still plagued with the prejudices of money and grades. Education should not be about percentages, cut-offs and degrees and it MUST be available to one and all. This is what 3 Idiots is all about.

5. Rang De Basanti

20s is a very volatile age group. We get angry at the drop of the hat. Our adrenaline levels are always pumping and our all time favourite punching bag is the system of the country. But what do we actually do to correct this system? Nothing. ‘Rang De Basanti’ tries to¬†create an environment of increased¬†activism on matters of public interest and throws open a debate: do we want to take matters into our hands or keep crying foul¬†about¬†the¬†inefficiencies of the society?

6. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag

When we watch movies like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, it feels like your comfortable cover has been blown off. At 25, the world feels like a mess. However, some tales are so inspiring that your own struggles begin to look mediocre in front of them. Watching a biopic of a real man who has gone through so much to achieve everything in his chosen vocation, inspires you to keep going towards your goal and give your hundred percent to whatever you do.

7. Rockstar

If you’re 25,¬†you know there can be no better expression of love and pain than music. ‘Rockstar’ shows the struggles of a talented singer and a fallen superstar and his love torn heart which just can’t seem to find peace. Aren’t we all a bit like this? We carry hurt and pain in our hearts but what we need to learn is to channelize the disappointments and aggression in¬†life into something constructive. A must watch for all the obvious reasons!

8. Wake Up Sid

Where are we standing in life? Where are we headed? Is this what we always wanted to do in life? Are we satisfied with the life we have chosen for ourselves? Are we even awake? Or are we¬†being washed out by a strong current called life? These questions come back to haunt us later by when some important decisions of our lives cannot be undone. ‘Wake Up Sid’ urges us to correct our decisions, realise our underfed talents and live life according to our own liking.

9. Queen

What would happen to you if you hit rock bottom in life? When you’re down, the only way to go is up, says ‘Queen’. This movie is like a beautiful poem which suddenly makes you feel good about life. It makes its viewers believe that there are people out there you can trust and look up to for friendship and guidance. And, most importantly, if there is no one, you still have yourself! So just go out, and live every single day of your life to the fullest.

10. Chak De! India

Call it SRK’s stellar acting, a beautifully written¬†script or sheer patriotism, there is no chance you could have missed this one. The movie teaches us to rise above¬†religious, regional and emotional prejudices and to¬†play like a team for a common cause! More than anything, this movie also gave India its unofficial anthem in the form of its title track ‘Chak De India’.

11. Taare Zameen Par

Have we ever wondered why a glass appears half empty¬†to some of us while it looks half full¬†to others? It’s just a matter of perception, we say. ‘Taare Zameen Par’ breaks the stigma attached with the differently abled children and leads us to give them a fair chance. Such movies leave a lasting impact on our psyche and help us immensely in bettering our judgement towards life. And in case, you forgot the message of the movie, just remember, every child is special.

12. Rock On!!

Friends, fights and lots of rock music! A never-seen-before spectacle for a Bollywood movie, ‘Rock On’ set a new bench mark for Hindi movies. Guided by the feelings of ego and jealousy, we often make many reckless decisions in our youth only to repent later in life. If you too have an unfulfilled passion or a remorse of lost friendship at 25, go after it because it’s never too late.

13. Swades

25 is an age when we are at our ambitious best. We have accomplished quite a few things and can see a comfortable and promising¬†future for ourselves. However, how many of us can leave a settled life behind and devote it to the upliftment and betterment of the lives of our rural brethren. ‘Swades’ is a story of self-less devotion to the country and bringing development at¬†the grass-root level. A must-watch for all who want to contribute to their ¬†motherland in their own little way.

14. Iqbal

There is no bigger defeat in life than succumbing to our own incapabilities and there is no bigger victory than overcoming them. This overwhelming tale of unbelievable self-belief and will power reminds us that our real inspiration lies within us, and once we find that, we should harness it and achieve the unthinkable.

15. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

I can’t¬†remember the last Bollywood movie which struck a chord with youngsters as much as YJHD did. Some of us¬†could see our¬†friends in the movie, some of us relived our¬†own journeys, some of us were reminded of our love stories but¬†all of us loved the way Ranbir leaves everything for his passion, only to return as a much more mature and sensible guy. If not for anything else, YJHD is a must watch for its scenic locales and foot tapping¬†music which inspires you to pack your bags and just travel!

16. Jab We Met

Indian youngsters have been brought up on a staple diet of romance fed to them by veterans such as SRK and Kajol. However, ‘Jab We Met’ gave audiences not only a fresh romantic couple but an equally beautiful story. The movie depicts how love means different things to different people ¬†and that nothing is wrong when two people are in love.

17. Rocket Singh

Admit it!¬†We have all given up on some life-changing¬†idea at least once in our lives because we lacked the courage to make the actual plunge. No wonder we move on with a familiar remorse in our hearts. ‘Rocket Singh’ teaches us an amazing lesson about self-worth which stresses on the fact that an¬†organisation is only as good as its employees and that taking risks in life is not as bad as it¬†looks initially.

18. Luck by Chance

It’s only natural for a young mind to lust after fame and relationships. But can we manage to balance¬†them both safely on¬†our palms? Bollywood is considered as the big-bad-world where people make friends for their own benefit and ‘Luck by Chance’ gives us a sneak peek into it. The movie almost seems to poke¬†fun of the film industry¬†but with great affection.¬†Most of our youth years are torn between the dilemma of love and career, and the movie beautifully sums up this dilemma with its subtle message that success is best enjoyed with the presence of your well-wishers and not at their cost.

19. Shaitan

Dark, reckless and unforgiving, 20s is a phase where we could be living in denial. We feel grown up and mature, but fail to tame the wild child inside each of us. We meet random people and tend to let them enter our lives too soon. But can they be our real friends? Should we be more mature in our judgement? Can we own up to our mistakes instead of running away from them? ‘Shaitan’ warns us of this dark side of youth and gives us a lot to think about.

20. Fukrey

If you are in your 20s, chances of you being in a situation where you thought your life has been royally fucked are quite high! And when you are neck deep in shit, you realise that the world is a much more adventurous place to be in as compared to the safe shell you’ve been living in. Such times teach you the importance of friendship and make you a stronger person. ‘Fukrey’, in a very light-hearted manner, lets us know that with the help of your friends and a little street smartness, you can manage your way out of any situation.

21. Fashion

We all have heard about the big bad world that fashion and film industry are and for the uninitiated, ‘Fashion’ is a brilliant reference point. 25¬†is that time of our lives when we are still unsure about everything and anything¬†dark attracts us. No wonder that we are at the peak of our obsession with the fashion world. ‘Fashion’ the movie is a well-researched sneak peek into the struggles and pressures of modelling and delivers a very important life message: everything that goes up, comes down.

22. Socha Na Tha

When the king of romance, Imtiaz Ali has a story to tell, you just can’t miss¬†it. We all have been in and out of relationships and that is what makes this movie so relatable. The emotional turmoil and the helplessness in the matters of that heart have been beautifully depicted in the movie, exactly the reason why it remains so close to the heart of the youngsters.

23. Pyaar Ka Punchnama

Life is not always about serious stuff, it’s equally about having relationships and having fun, or NOT, in this case! This quirky take on the bachelor life and modern-day couples is a must watch for anyone dealing with a quarter-life crisis. The sleeper-hit aptly showcases the struggles of youngsters who are desperate to find a financial and romantic standing in their lives, but fail miserably on both the fronts, like many of us do at this age. This¬†light-hearted comedy will¬†make your day however many times you watch it.

24. Udaan

Udaan is one movie which should be watched by parents and kids together. Dealing with a major problem plaguing the Indian society today, Udaan takes us through the journey of a teen-aged boy forced to compromise on his dreams and take up a conventional path in life. The emotional turmoil that the story depicts, resonates with all of us who have given up on something close to our hearts. The movie gives a very important lesson to its viewers: if you still have that fire burning in you, do not hesitate to take that flight!

25. Barfi!

What is that one thing we always take for granted in life? Ironically, it’s our life itself! ‘Barfi’ comes as a subtle reality check for all of us who crib about all the trivial issues in life. Even though the protagonist of the movie cannot speak, yet the movie gives a loud and clear message about living life to the fullest despite all the problems and most importantly smile through them!

Song 3 : Luttna (Cocktail)

Am so loving this song

Je main tainu bahar dhoondhan
Te mere andar kaun samaaya
Je main tainu andar dhoondhan
Te baahar kis di maaya

Andar tu ein bahar tu ein
Vekhan har thaan tera saaya
Main vi tu ein te tu vi tu ein
Ratta farak nazar na aaya

Yaar enj luttna haye luttna,
Oh dil tuttna tuttna tuttna
Yaar enj luttna haye luttna,
Oh dil tuttna tuttna tuttna
Yaar enj luttna haye luttna,
Oh dil tuttna tuttna tuttna
Yaar enj luttna...

Log chiraag jalatey ghee ke
Maine dil ka deep jalaaya
Log hain khaate kasam wafa ki
Main zehar hijr ka khaaya
Log gawaande dil ishqe mein
Log gawaande dil ishqe mein
Maine apna aap gawaaya

Phir bhi mera kujh na haaye
Mere sohnye yaar ko bhaaya

Je main nadiyaan naan tu paani
Main taan bin tere sukh jaana
Main taan bin tere sukh jaana

Je tu paani taan main piyaasi
Je tu paani taan main piyaasi
Main taan bin tere muk jaana

Dil da laggna agg da laggna
Yaara sab kuchh hai jal jaana
Na tu dhuan na chingaari
Yahan kuchh bhi nazar na aana
Aaja khelein khel wafa ka
Aaja khelein khel wafa ka
Yeh khel hai bahut puraana
Ya tu mera ya main teri
Hai chaukhat par mar jaana

Yaar ajj luttna haye luttna,
Oh dil tuttna tuttna tuttna
Yaar ajj luttna haye luttna,
Oh dil tuttna tuttna tuttna

Yaar ajj luttna haye luttna,
Oh dil tuttna tuttna tuttna
Yaar ajj luttna haye luttna,
Oh dil tuttna tuttna tuttna
Yaar enj luttna..

Song 1 : Lehrein (Movie : Aisha)

Hope you like it ūüôā

—————————————————————————————————-

Khoyi khoyi si hoon main
Kyun yeh dil ka haal hai
Dhundli saari khwaab hai
Ulja har khayaal hai
Saari kaliyan murja gayi
Rang unke yaadon mein beh gaye
Saare gharaande reet ke
Lehrein aayi, lehron mein beh gayi

Raah mein kal kitni chirag the
Saamne kal phoolon ki bhaag thi
Iss se kahun kaun hai jo sune
Kaante hi kyun maine hai chune
Sapne mere kyun hai kho gaye
Jaage hai kyun dil mein gumm mere
Saare kaliyan murja gayi
Rang unke yaadon mein beh gaye
Saare gharaande reet ke
Lehrein aayi, lehron mein beh gayi

Kya kahun kyun yeh dil udaas hai
Ab koi door hai na paas hai
Choo le jo dil woh baatein ab kahan
Woh din kahan raatein ab kahan
Jo bhi dhakhal hai ab khawab sa
Ab dil mera hai betaab sa
Saari kaliyan murja gayi
Rang unke yaadon mein beh gaye
Saare gharaande reet ke
Lehrein aayi, lehron mein beh gayi, beh gaye.
