koi fariyaad

My husband plays this song in the car whenever he finds me in a very bad mood. And I happened to be in one such bad mood over this weekend. The moment the play button was pressed, flashback scenes came rushing to my head and I could see those tortoise mosquito coils going round and round.


We watched this movie on friendship day of our college final year. We loved the songs. I remember, the whole of our batch, sitting in one room, hearing to this song , over 100 times on one night.

koi fariyaad, tere dil mein, dabee ho jaise
tune aankhon, se koi baat, kahi ho jaise
jaagte jaagte, ik umr, katee ho jaise
jaan baki, hai magar saans, ruki ho jaise


(Priyanshu Chatterjee’s dialogue: jaanta hun, aapko sahare ki zarurat nahi, main sirf saatah dene aaya hun)

har mulaqat pe, mehsoos, yehi hota hai
mujhse kuch, teri nazar, pooch rahi ho jaise
raah chalte, hue aksar, ye gumaah hota hai
wo nazar chup ke, mujhe, dekh rahi ho jaise

ek lamhe, mein simat aaya, sadiyon ka safar
zindagi tez, bohat tez, chali ho jaise
iss tarah pehron tujhe, sochta rehta, hun main
meri har saans, tere naam, likhi ho, jaise

koi fariyaad, tere dil mein, dabee ho jaise
tune aankhon, se koi baat, kahi ho jaise
jaagte jaagte, ik umr, katee ho jaise
jaan baki, hai magar saans, ruki ho jaise

  1. Preethe,

    Somehow I feel that one can express one's thoughts better in Hindi than in any langauge.Hindi has got those words which touches the right chords :-) :-).

    That dialogue was awesome and so the lyrics.

    Have a nice day,
