Filmein shilmein chalti thi... woh raatein ab kahaan gayi...


Best song of film Desi Boyz! That's how I like to describe it. I just got a chance to watch the movie last night and loved it. This was the song that stuck and I kept humming it while it was playing in the background for those 5-10 mins. Feel-good song of the feel-good movie. That's all I got to say. It takes me back to childhood as the lyrics say and then stay there. Describes how life used to be simpler because there was less. Less of everything. Simple. The best! As is the song. :)

PS. While searching for the lyricist, I just realized that it's all by Shahvaar Ali Khan. What a talented person! The song reminds me of "woh kaagaz ki kashti", and "give me some sunshine".


(filmein shilmein chalti thi hum gaane shaane gaate the
woh raatein ab kahaan gayi jab pal bhar mein so jaate the) (2)

fail fool ho kar hum maare shaare khaate the (2)
jeb bhi khaali hoti thi phir kahaan se himmat laate the
woh raatein ab kahaan gayi jab pal bhar mein so jaate the

filmein shilmein chalti thi hum gaane shaane gaate the

(june mein tab bhi garmi thi par hum yoon kam lagte the
gaadi shaadi kab hoti thi par sadke sab apni thi) (2)

gareeb jab ek ladke pe ameer ladki marti thi
aur yeh duniya apne liye waqt nikala karti thi
waqt nikala karti thi
botal shotal peeke hum kaise khush ho jaate the
woh raatein ab kahaan gayi jab pal bhar mein so jaate the

filmein shilmein chalti thi hum gaane shaane gaate the
woh raatein ab kahaan gayi jab pal bhar mein so jaate the

(maacho? kitna achha tha dushman bhi tab saccha tha
haar ke jab hum girte the to hume uthane padta tha) (2)

dost bhi koyi kam na tha tum mein bhi tum na tha
woh umar kuch aisi thi ke hum se koyi kam na tha
hum se koyi kam na tha
tedhe medhe log bhi kitne seedhe saade hote the
woh raatein ab kahaan gayi jab pal bhar mein so jaate the

filmein shilmein chalti thi hum gaane shaane gaate the
woh raatein ab kahaan gayi jab pal bhar mein so jaate the

fail fool ho kar hum maare shaare khaate the (2)
jeb bhi khaali hoti thi phir kahaan se himmat laate the
woh raatein ab kahaan gayi jab pal bhar mein so jaate the

(filmein shilmein chalti thi hum gaane shaane gaate the
woh raatein ab kahaan gayi jab pal bhar mein so jaate the) (3)

rahul, thanks for stopping by. Sorry, no idea where you can download the song from. You can listen to it on youtube until then.

Anon, true that. It is like one of those songs that makes us miss school/college/younger days.
