ab mujhe koi intezar kahan (Ishqiya)

Rekha Bharadwaj is one great talent. And the best part is that she gets to sing Gulzar’s words on Vishal’s tunes. And while many singers might have reasons to be jealous, she keeps on proving her talent again and again. Ab mujhe koi intezar kahan is one such instance. The song is a great one by Gulzar and has been sung as deeply by Rekha. A slow, soft, deep song you’d love to listen to.

Lyrics

Ab mujhe koi intezaar kahan
Ab mujhe koi intezaar kahan
Wo jo behte the aabshaar kahan
Ab mujhe koi intezaar kahan
Ab mujhe koi intezaar kahan
Wo jo behte the aabshar kahan
Ab mujhe koi intezaar kahan

Aankh ke ek gaon mein, raat ko khwaab aate the
Aankh ke ek gaon mein, raat ko khwaab aate the
Chhoone se behte the, bole to kehte the
Udte khwaabon ka aitbaar kahan
Udte khwaabon ka aitbaar kahan
Ab mujhe koi intezaar kahan

Jin dino aap the, aankh mein dhoop thi
Jin dino aap rehte the, aankh mein dhoop rehti thi
Ab to jaale hi jaale hain, ve bhi jaane wale hain
Woh jo tha dard ka qaraar kahan
Woh jo tha dard ka qaraar kahan
Ab mujhe koi intezaar kahan
Woh jo behte the abshaar kahan
Ab mujhe koi intezaar kahan

  1. Gulzar and Vishal Bharadwaj don’t do anything extra ordinary. they just understand that WORDS should have their rightful value in a song.

    creating mindless music doesn’t work
    creating mindless words doesn’t work

    its only when both are intertwined when you get beautiful music taht you want to listen again and again 🙂

    in an era of software manipulation and template style music, these guys break that trend. may be because these guy’s don’t write for factories or don’t have assembly style music manufacturing drive that makes their music so enjoyable.

    write music because you have a reason and let that music not be just money. how difficult is this to get? i guess, for Bollywood, incredibly difficult. So difficult that they rather copy paste from around the world then write about they feel.

  2. such a heart touching song……………….and excellently sung by rekha bharadwaj ji……………and gulzar saheb k shbd………………shyd shbd kho jaate hai inke baarein mei likhte huye bcz he is jst superb……………….

  3. this is a very crude translation of the song, will work on it later.

    i dont wait for anything any longer
    i dont wait for anything any longer
    the waterfalls (of tears) which used to be there are no longer

    In the village of eyes, dreams used to come at nights,
    which flow when touched, which spoke when spoken to
    but how can one trust inconstant dreams
    i dont wait for anything any longer

    the days when you were here, my eyes had sunshine
    now there are cobwebs everywhere and even they are going to go obsolete
    the catharsis after pain that used to be there is no longer
    i dont wait for anything any longer

    i dont wait for anything any longer
    i dont wait for anything any longer
    the waterfalls which used to be there are no longer

  4. Hey Aneesh, I just wanted to tell you that the correct pronounciation for the word Aitbaar is Etbaar..it has been corrected number of times by javed ahtar sahab, ghulzar sahab and shabana ji..In urdu its pronounced Etbaar, but our dear bollywood has muddled the water a bit :)..

    Just this..enjoy

  5. Amazing guys……..this song and all of u discussing it here!! I just heard the song for the first time yesterday and hadnt been able to get it out of my head so looked up the lyrics and accidently came across all of u……and the inputs were amazing……gave the song even more poignancy knowing it is touching so many hearts……i had immediately connected to the song and been playing it repeatedly…….one of those very rare numbers to which it happens…..thx and cheers!!

  6. Beautiful melody…..bluesy ….. jazzy ….(sort of un- Indian ..more like music you hear in a Chicago night club late at night) … wonderful to do a slow dance with the one you love. Rekha’s voice … sexy, sensuous…very pretty (somewhat like Ravi Shanker’s American daughter) . Music arrangement …. guitar/piano playing …. nice (though the chords? to the song is not meant for the amateur).? The theme of song (nothing matters any more)is decent …..specially for me who has lived 67 years on this earth and witnessed passing of events … laughter and tears….. but more meaning words could have made this song even better ….
