Sadda Haq ~ Rockstar

Sung by : Mohit Chauhan, Clinton Cerejo  Music: AR Rahman, Orianthi (guitars)

AR Rahman’s iconic rock anthem number from the rockstar. It appeals and reaches out to the disaffected and the frustrated, the young and the old, the passionate and the rebellious at heart. Again rendered by Mohit Chauhan. This is a different track from the usual soulful numbers of  Mohit Chauhan. A passionate   Sadda Haq Aithe rakh. It resonates in your heart and never  let go of you. It catches your heart and wringes it. It succinctly expresses the passion the angst, the demand. It is inexorable in its calling out to you to join the demand for freedom. The right to self expression. The right to one’s own life. The right to live by one’s own will. The powerful lyrics penned by Irshad Kamil  and the powerful, throbbing music by ARRahman, tugs at you. It is truly an anthem in recent times. Combining the best of Rock, Hindi and AR Rahman’s passionate style. One of the greatest ARR numbers, a break away from his normal styles.  The song includes fabulous guitar work by Orianthi.


what does Sadda Rakh mean?  It is Punjabi, an awesomely sexy and emotional language. It means Give me what ‘s mine, right here, right now. The

Tum logon ki, is duniya mein
Har kadam pe, insaan galat
Main sahi samajh ke jo bhi kahoon
Tum kehte ho galat, main galat hoon phir kaun sahi..

In this world of yours,  at every step, humans are wrong

When i say what i think is right, you tell me it is wrong

If I am wrong then who is right?

Marzi se jeene ki bhi main
Kya tum sabko arzi doon
Matlab ki tum sabka mujhpe
Mujhse bhi zyada haq hai
Saadda haq, aithe rakh

To live my life on my terms, Should i take permission from you,

Meaning that you all have on me,

More right than myself..

what is mine, give to me..right here, now.


Re Piya ~ Aaja Nachle~

Sung by : Rahat Fateh Ali Khan

A beautiful, mesmerizing song on love sung by the one and only RAK. His sweet voice conveys the urging and yearning of a lover for a loved..The slow pace of the song%2 the beats, the use of harmonium blended in with the flutes, creates a mood of love and yearning, as the camera focusses on the heroine along with her friends, laughing and happily while the viewer watches..with longing..on the heroine dancing. Madhuri symbolizes free energy here. The viewer expresses his feelings , the helplessness of love, through the words. The music lifts you and through the music, love is raised to worship..And Dance is an expression of love and energy, the union of the soul with the universe.


The song is exemplarily focussed on Madhuri Dixit. Who else in the recent times, has encompassed grace, beauty, artistry, sensuality and class without appearing vulgar..??

So Gaya Yeh Jahaan: Songfrom Tezaab 1987

Sung by Nitin Mukesh

A supremely sentimental song reflecting a number of moods from the hit film Tezaab. The lyrics, the music and the voice all add up to create a mesmerizing effect. The pathos, the feeling of union yet separation, yet the bridges still to be burned, the human life, the distance which has to be bridged between the lovers. Anil Kapoor and Madhuri essay the roles of separated lovers here. The lyrics are superb reflecting thoughts on life and human suffering.. when the world sleeps, humans remain awake, tortured and pondering on their lives..


Tujhe Bhula Diya : song from Anjaana Anjaani

Sung by the awesome Mohit Chauhan..

The song starts with beautiful punjabi lyrics. A mix of qawwali and pop, acoustic guitars, harmonium and tabla (?). A soft, smooth, feeling with the lovely voices conveying the pathos and sadness of unrequited or disappointed love. The lyrics convey the desolation and loss accompanying the protagonist. and his pain and inability to bear the grief and pain of  disappointment. He says that your memories make me cry. The qawwali lyrics are so beautiful. That everything lies in the hands of God and it is the almighty’s decision. The combination of mysticism, soul, pain, pathos, pop, spiritual feeling in this song makes it tak%s you to a different plane altogether. Mohit Chauhan’s voice renders homage to love.


Naina Laggeyan Baarishan
Tu sukke sukke sapne vi pijj gaye
Naina Laggeyan Baarishan
Rove palkan de Kone vich neend meri
Naina Laggeyan Baarishan
Hanju digde ne chot lage dil te
Naina Laggeyan Baarishan
Rut birha de badlan di chhaa gayi

(Still need to get the punjabi lyrics meaning..the highlight of this song)

Kaali kaali khaali raaton se
Hone lagi hai dosti
khoya khoya in raahon mein
%pAAb mera kuch bhi nahi
Har pal her lamha, main kaise sehta hoon
Har pal her lamha main khud se yeh kehta rehta hoon

Tr: I am becoming friends with the dark, dark, empty nights.  

Lost , lost in these ways, 

I have nothing left 

Every moment, every time, how do I bear this

Every moment, every time, I keep telling myself

Tujhe bhula diya

Phir kyun teri yaadon ne
Mujhe rula diya

Tr: I have forgotten you, Then why your memories have made me cry 

Teri yaadon mein likhte jo lafz dete hai sunaai,

beete lamhe poochhte hain kyun hue aise juda.. khuda,

Khuda mila jo yeh faasla hain

Khuda tera hi yeh faisla hain

Khuda hona tha woh ho gaya
Jo tune thha likha

Tr: The words I write in your memories, can be heard

The past times asks why this separation, Lord

Lord, The distance which has happened

Lord, it is only your decision

lord, what had to happen has happened

Which you only had written

Dol pal tujh se juda thha,
Aise phir rasta muda thha,
Tujh se main khone laga,
Juda jaise hone laga,
Mujh se kuch mera

Tr: I  became close to you for a while, 

And then the road took a turn

I started getting lost from you

Started losing

Some part of myself from me

Tu hi mera liye abb kr dua,

Tu hi is dard se kar de juda,
Tera hoke tera jo main na raha,
Main yeh khud se kehta hoon,

You only offer prayers for me

You only remove this pain from me,

Being yours, I could not be yours

and I keep telling this to me 

Tujhe bhula diya, oh,
Tujhe bhula diya, oh
Tujhe bhula di9a, oh
Phir kyun teri yaadon ne
Mujhe rula diya…………………”

Tr: Same as above
