Tere Liye Hum Hai Jiye

This has been probably the most famous song of the film and the best one in a long long time. It is the kind of song that will sound more melodious as decades pass.

We were all listening to all of these Veer Zaara songs together. That's when I asked Papu whether he liked this one the best and he said no. He likes "do pal ruka khwaabon ka caravan..." better. I too like that one a lot, but for me both of these song come at number one. Then again I am more partial towards Sonu's singing in "do pal". While we were talking I said that Roop Kumar Rathod has also done a fantastic job in singing (Lataji's singing is out of the question here) and he's probably the best choice, but to my surprise he disagreed. So then I asked who he thought could have done a better justice to the song. His said Kishore Kumar. I was quite surprised at that. :) I thought he'd have said Rafi but he didn't. It's not that I don't like Kishore Kumar but I haven't heard that many songs of him while growing up and since at home we had more music of Rafi sahab, I ended up listening to that only, and that "growing up" part has deeper connection so I tend to listen to those songs more often than any other ones.

After that chit-chat I shared my wild ideas with everyone about how I wished there was a gadget that would let us put in a voice of a person somehow and out comes a different song that we want any song that we want (depending upon the input parameters, of course) in that singer's voice. Aaah! what a miracle that would be. The answer I got was "if you can think of it, may be some day it will exist". I wish a gadget like that comes to existence someday... :D

As for this song, the less we say the better. It can't be said actually, I feel.


M: tere liye hum hai jiye honthon ko siye
F: tere liye hum hai jiye har aansoo piye
M: dil mein magar jalte rahe chaahat ke diye
tere liye (2)

F: tere liye hum hai jiye har aansoo piye
M: tere liye hum hai jiye honthon ko siye
F: dil mein magar jalte rahe chaahat ke diye
tere liye (2)

F: aa aa aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa

M: zindagi le ke aayi hai beete dinon ki kitaab (2)
ghere hai ab hume yaaden behisaab
F: bin poochhe mile mujhe itne saare ja3aab
chaaha tha kya paaya hai kya humne dekhiye
M: dil mein magar jalte rahe chaahat ke diye
tere liye (2)

F: kya kahoon duniya ne kiya mujhse kaisa bair (2)
hukum ka main jiyun lekin tere bagair
M: naadaan hai woh kehte hai jo mere liye tum ho gair
kitne sitam hum pe sanam logon ne kiye
F: dil mein magar jalte rahe chaahat ke diye
tere liye (2)

M: tere liye hum hai jiye honthon ko siye
F: tere liye hum hai jiye har aansoo piye
Both: dil mein magar jalte rahe chaahat ke diye
tere liye (2)

M: tere liye
F: tere liye

M: tere liye
F: tere liye
