Dil toh Baccha hai

This song has been driving me crazy for quite sometime now. Vishal Bharadwaj's music always has a rustic and earthy feel to it. Be it 'Naina thag lenge' or 'Oh Saathi re' from Omkara or 'Pehli baar mohabbat' from Kaminey. I like his style of movies, albeit that I had to watch Omkara twice to understand the dialect of the speech used. I saw Kaminey twice too, but for totally different reasons. It was amazing. I have seen it already 4-5 times by now.

Music in his movies are always under rated, but they are the most pleasant songs I've heard. With unconventional singers, Bharadwaj's music always stands out. His music was the only saving grace of the disaster movie 'U, me aur Hum'. That movie had me and Priya tearing our hair out. As of now, totally smitten by 'Dil toh Bachccha hai' from Ishqiya. I have a gut feeling that this movie is gonna be real good. We'll know if it does or not after I watch it tomorrow. Honestly, I'm not the one to watch Vidya Balan on big screen, but after Paa I had to change my view. Man, more often than not I'm wrong these days. Not a good sign, but atleast I'm learning the right things now :-). So here goes the song. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan's unique twang and simple powerful lyrics. I'm sure I'll be humming this even when I turn 50.


Aisi ulji nazar unse hatt ti nahi
Daant se reshmi dor katt ti nahi
Umar kab ki baras ke safaid ho gayi
Kaari badari jawani ki chatt ti nahi
Walla ye dhadkan bhadne lagi hai
Chehre ki rangat udne lagi hai
Darr lagta hai tanha sone mein ji
Dil to bachcha hai ji
Dil to bachcha hai ji
Thoda kaccha hai ji
Haan dil to baccha hai ji
Aisi ulji nazar unse hatt ti nahi
Daant se reshmi dor katt ti nahi
Umar kab ki baras ke safaid ho gayi
Kaari badari jawani ki chatt ti nahi
Ra ra ra ..

Kisko pata tha pehlu mein rakha
Dil aisa baaji bhi hoga
Hum to hamesha samajhte the koi
Hum jaisa haaji hi hoga
Haye zor karein, kitna shor karein
Bewaja baatein pe ainwe gaur karein
Dilsa koi kameena nahi
Koi to rokey, koi to tokey
Iss umar mein ab khaogey dhokhe
Darr lagta hai ishq karne mein ji
Dil to bachcha hai ji
Dil to bachcha hai ji
Thoda kaccha hai ji
Haan dil to baccha hai ji..


Aisi udhaasi baithi hai dil pe
Hassne se ghabra rahe hain
Saari jawani katra ke kaati
Piri mein takra gaye hain
Dil dhadakta hai to aise lagta hai woh
Aa raha hai yahin dekhta hi na woh
Prem ki maarein kataar re
Taubah ye lamhe katt te nahi kyun
Aankhein se meri hatt te nahi kyun
Darr lagta hai khudse kehne mein ji
Dil toh bachcha hai ji
Dil toh bachcha hai ji
Thoda kaccha hai ji
Haan dil toh baccha hai ji..

I so love the 'tauba ye lamha' and 'darr lagta hai ishq karne mein ji' part. Perfect sense it makes. The rest of the album, I'm afraid is not upto the mark of this one.
