Naav – Udaan: Lyrics

Naav or chadhti lehren laangh na paayen is probably the best song of Anurag Kashyap’s next production, Udaan, which has been composed by none other than Amit Trivedi and with lyrics of Amitabh Bhattacharya. The song, sung by Mohan, has a folkish touch and has Amit’s signature rock mood too. And somehow, I agree with my friend Dunkdaft who says the song reminds him of SD Burman too. Anyway, the song has some real good singing with some superb music but it’s the lyrics that I’m loving the most, so here are the lyrics of the song, as best as I could hear them.

chadhti lehren laangh na paayen kyun haanpti si naav hai teri naav hai teri
tinka tinka jod ke saanse kyun haanpti si naav hai teri naav hai teri
ulti behti dhaar hai bairi dhaar hai bairi
ulti behti dhaar hai bairi dhaar hai bairi
ke ab kuch kar ja re panthi..

jigar juta kya baat baandh le hai baat thehri jaan pe teri jaan pe teri
Haiya Ho Ki Taan Saath Le Jo Baat Tehri Jaan Pe Teri Shaan Pe Teri

Chal Jeet Jeet Lehra Parcham tu laal Phehra Ja
Ab Kar Ja Tu Ya Mar Ja Karle Taiyari
Udja Banke Dhoop Ka Panchi chura ke gehri chhaon Andheri Chaao Andheri
Tinka Tinka Joodle Saase Kyun Haanphti Si Naav Hai Teri

Rakh Dega JhakJhor ke tujhe
Tufano Ka Ghor Hai Dera Ghor Hai Dera
Bhanwar Se dar Jo Haar Maan Le
Kaheka Phir Jor Hai Tera Jor Hai Tera

Hai Dil Mei Roshni Tere
Tu Cheer Daal Sab Ghere
Lehron Ki Gardan Kas Ke
Daal Phande Re

Ki Dariyan Bole waaha Re Panthi
Saar Ankhon Pe Naav Hai Teri Naav Hai Teri
Chadti Lehren Laangh Na Paaye
Kyun Hanpti Si Naav Hai Teri Naav Hai Teri

Ulti Behti Dhaar Hai Bairi Dhaar Hai Bairi
Ulti Behti Dhaar Hai Bairi Dhaar Hai Bairi
Ke Ab Kuch Kar Ja Re panthi..

Update: Full meaning of the song is Here.

  1. Thanks for the lyrics, was looking for since I’ve heard it. This Amit & Amit duo has one more winner in their hand… 🙂

    Btw, I think the two lines of 4th paragraph should be:

    Rakh Dega JhakJhor ke “Tujhe”
    Tufano Ka Ghor Hai Dera Ghor Hai Dera
    Bhanwar Se “Dar” Jo Haar Maan Le
    Kaheka Phir Jor Hai Tera Jor Hai Tera

    Not too sure, but to my ears it sounded so… just my two cents. 🙂

  2. Its Panthi in some places, too. I’ve followed every song of this singer. So maybe I know his pronunciations better. 😛

    Btw, he sings for Agnee. One of my favorite bands. I’ve been following happysing closely and its a safe suggestion that you try all songs by Agnee. You’ll surely like them. 🙂

  3. Another minor correction….Chal Jeet Jeet Lehra “Ja” Parcham tu laal Phehra Ja

    And its truly an awesome song!

    As a suggestion, you could try and write the lyrics in hindi (try google transliteration)…at least for deep meaning ones like this song. Will be more impactful and meaningful. Songs like these remind us how beautiful, powerful and inspirational our mother toungue can be 🙂

  4. I love this song as much as I love my agony for life. Great Job done by both the Amit and Mohan. Amazing song, Amazing Lyrics, Amazing Meaning, Amazing Music and Of course an Amazing Movie. I’ve seen it thrice in a day and this song is my callertune now. Three Cheers for this Song for its Victory and its Prestige…..Awesome!!!!

  5. well the meaning that the lyricist is trying to convey is clear, but the poetry is poor -severly lacking in vocabulary with inconsistent imagery and random linkages, just learn some proper urdu or hindi and listen to a poet of repute and you will know the truth about the likes of joshis and bhattacharyas etc..so called lyric writers.

  6. Hey Harshit,
    Nice compilation. I read the comments and I am sure that you might have been in a lot of lyrics problem while penning it down. 🙂

    Super song anytime but one drawback that lyrics aren’t clear at many places. Maybe these guys should work on this. RD Burman was way ahead. Way to go now.

    Btw I also manage a lyrics blog but thats completely in Hindi because I feel that hindi songs can’t be best read in english (it’s a funny language has been correctly said :))!!

    You can visit my blog @ Lyrics in Hindi – ?????? ?? ??? and put in your thoughts.

    Cheers!

  7. Hey guys,
    You guys really seem to know your hindi (and urdu). I am trying to get into hindi and urdu poetry and would like some suggestions to go about it. As I have lived outside of India for all my life, my Hindi is strictly of the level of a casual speaker, which, I understand, will make it harder for me to appreciate these poems. But I heard the poems in Udaan, and got goosebumps. Can you guys suggest some poets who have similar kind of poems (that are written in more-or-less simple Hindi), or how to go about learning to appreciate the works by other well-known Indian poets (both in Hindi and Urdu)?
    I would appreciate it immensely.

  8. @abhishek

    pity on you……Talking of big hindi and urdu wordings and linkages…There is a depth in this song you need to understand….Sheesh People come saying poor lyrics……On the contrary its “Poor” you who have failed to understand the actual depth in the wordings

  9. chadhti lehrein laangh na paayen kyun haanpti si naav hai teri, naav hai teri
    tinka tinka jod ke saanse kyun haanpti si naav hai teri naav hai teri
    ulti behti dhaar hai, behri dhaar hai behri
    ulti behti dhaar hai ,behri dhaar hai behri
    ke ab kuch kar ja re bandhu !!
    jigar juta ke , baal baandh le, hai baat thehri jaan pe teri jaan pe teri
    Haiya Ho Ki Taan Saadh Le Jo Baat Thehri Jaan Pe Teri Shaan Pe Teri
    Chal Jeet Jeet Lehra Parcham tu laal Phehra Ja
    Ab Kar Ja Tu Ya Mar Ja Karle Taiyari
    Udja Banke Dhoop Ka Panchi chuda ke ,gehri chhaon Andheri Chaao Andheri
    Tinka Tinka Joodle Saase Kyun Haanpti Si Naav Hai Teri!!
    Rakh Dega JhakJhor ke tujhe
    Tufano Ka Ghor Hai Dera Ghor Hai Dera
    Bhanwar Se dar Jo Haar Maan Le
    Kahe ka Phir Jor Hai Tera Jor Hai Tera!!
    Hai Dil Mei Roshni Tere
    Tu Cheer Daal Sab Ghere
    Lehron Ki Gardan Kas Ke
    Daal Phande Re
    Ki Dariyan Bole waaha Re Panthi
    Saar Ankhon Pe Naav Hai Teri Naav Hai Teri

  10. Awesome song with Awesome lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya. Perfectly suited for Mohan Kannan’s voice. Back vocals of Amit Trivedi & Amitabh should be appluded as well. Choice of words or framing according to the movie’s theme was fantastic. Even “Aazadiyan” song in this movie deserves a special mention. It has some wonderful words woven which will mesmerise you. Hats off to Amit Trivedi & Amitabh Bhattacharya.
