Jhoom by Ali Zafar

I think this is the most romantic song I have ever heard, and I just feel like listening to it over an over again!  The lyrics (Lyrics with English translation can be seen in the Lyrics category here) of the song are as follows:

Ho ho maine tujhe dekha
Ha’nste hue gaalo’n mein
Bayzar khayalon mein
Husn ke havaalo’n mein
So’hni ke baalo’n mein
Morni ki chaalo’n mein
Matti ke pyaalo’n mein
Peetal ke thaalo’n mein
Jitni tu milti jaaye, utni lagey thodi thodi
Jab bhi tu le angdaayi, aake mere ori
K dil jhoom jhoom chale jhoom jhoom chale soneya soneya
Dil jhoom jhoom chale jhoom jhoom chale soneya soneya

Bachpan ke saavan beetay, ladakpan ki beeti dhaara
Jab mud ke dekha peechay, toh chhoota jeevan saara
Phir bhi teri aas pakad ke, har ik din guzaara hai
Teri ik nazar pe meri, saans ka sahara hai
Tumse binti karat hoon dil todo na hamara
Ke dil jhoom, jhoom, chale… jhoom, jhoom chale… soneya, soneya
Dil jhoom, jhoom chale… jhoom, jhoom chale… soneya, soneya

Do matwale naina humaare, teri hi raah takat hai’n pyaare
Mann ki mere preet bujhaaye, tann ki mere saij saja re
Sochat kya re, hum toh haare
Baar baar har daar daar, har dagar karun tera intezaar
Ke dil jhoom jhoom chale jhoom jhoom chale soneya soneya
Dil jhoom jhoom chale jhoom jhoom chale soneya soneya

Ho ho maine tujhe dekha
Subah ke ujaalon mein
Nadiya mein naalo’n mein
Lamho’n mein saalo’n mein
Pyaar karne walo’n mein
Junoo’n mein jiyaalo’nmein
Ishq ke malaalo mein
Zinda misaalo’n mein
Jitni tu milti jaaye, utni lagey thodi thodi
Zindagi ki dori maine, piya sang jodi
Ke dil jhoom jhoom chale jhoom jhoom chale soneya soneya
Dil jhoom jhoom chale jhoom jhoom chale soneya soneya
Dil jhoom jhoom chale jhoom jhoom chale .. soneya soneya ..

Jhoom is a soothing sufi song.  The comparisons in the first verse are just so beautiful.  He sees her in laughing face expressions, in his free thoughts, the references of great looks, her beautiful hair, walk of a peacock, cups of clay, plates of brass.  Here cups of clay has a deeper meaning,  it is perfection and skill that makes them look perfectly beautiful. The same perfection and skill is shown in her looks.

The third verse is more like a bridge between two main verses.  It talks about his pain when she is away from him, his two intoxicated eyes looking for her.  He has lost all hopes searching for her every time and now he just waits for her at every station in his life.

In the fourth verse he again compares her to some of the most beautiful things of nature.  The rising sun, the rivers and streams, in moments and years, in every lover, and in feelings of love. When he says “lamhon me saalon me” it means that he misses her in every second of his life for years and years.  Talking of “zinda misaalon me” – these are examples of love, but many have ended.  Therefore, he compares his love with those that are alive, this shows his hope, hope for his love.

The lines “jitni tu milti jaaye, utni lage thodi thodi” are the most beautiful lines of the song and shows his insatiable love, that every glimpse of her in all the nature around him is less for him.  He just wants more of her; he wants her with him forever.

“Dil jhoom jhoom chale jhoom jhoom chale soneya” means that his intoxicated heart just sways and swings to its tune, and misses her and thinks of her in every beat.

I hope you guys enjoy the song as much as I do.  I have attached the link to the video of the song.  Enjoy!
