Music Review : 7 Khoon Maaf


Tere Liye Tere Liye
Lafzon Mei, Lamhon Ki, Doliyan Laaye Hain
Sheron Mei, Khushboo Ki, Boliyan Laaye Hain

Yes, this is a gift from Gulzar & Vishal to all of us; a gift of musical words detailing certain moments which have been carefully crafted. Teaming with Vishal Bharadwaj yet again, Gulzar brings us this buoquet of songs with flowers of all moods.

Halki Si Sardiyan Aur Saans Garam Ho
Shaamo Ki Shawl Bhi, Thodi Si Narm Ho
Tere Liye Kishmish Chuney, Pistey Chuney, Tere Liye
Humne To Parindo Se, Baaghon Ke Saude Kiye

The sweetness of Suresh Wadkar’s voice pours honey into our ears. This song Tere Liye is sweeter than the lullaby Jag Ja that Wadkar sang in Omkara. There is a romantic huskiness that he has infused into the song and that actually works for it. Wish other musicians would utilize his voice too, its been such an under-used voice.

The same can be said of KK too. When I heard him in O’Mama, I felt I was hearing his voice after such a long time. KK rocked the song. His voice is perfect for that pitch and the high-level energy.

Aise Dabey Paon Aaye Woh Ki Chhaap Na Ho
Khwaab Mei Mil Jaaye Lekin Woh Khwaab Na Ho
Umeed To Nahin, Phir Bhi Umeed Ho
Koi To Iss Tarah, Aashiq Shaheed Ho

And the way Gulzar glides from sweet melody to a rock song mode is fantastic. This reminded me of Mai Khuda from Paanch. Vishal’s composition of this song is superb, with great orchestration.

But Vishal does not restrict himself to composing, he takes to the mike too. The song Bekaraan is similar sounding to the title song of Kaminey. The same voice quality and softness is in display. Its like an onion that he peels, layer after layer; wallowing in emotions.

Ik Zara Dekhiye To, Aapke Paon Taley
Kuchh To Atka Hai Kahin, Waqt Se Kahiye Chaley
Udti Udti Si Nazar Mujhko Chhoo Jaye Agar
Ek Tasleem Ko Har Baar Meri Aankh Jhuki Hai
Aap Ko Dekh Ke Badi Der Se Meri Saans Ruki Hai

Its a beautiful poetic expression of how time comes to a stand-still and the tender request to let time move on as the moment hath passed. Gulzar is a true wizard of words and phrases.

His devotional lyrics in Yeshu song has a haunting feel of loneliness and search for the Almighty. It highlights the fact that we think of the Lord only at times of desperation and need for a saviour, much like the way a child looks to hide itself in the safe arms of his mother.

Koi Nahin Iss Waqt Yahan
Iss Waqt Mujhe Apnaana
Aagosh Mei Apni Le Lo
Phir Chaahe Jahan Le Jaana

But what’s even more remarkable is the way Gulzar paints the picture of Christ bearing the cross, although his love is all encompassing.

Tum Pyaar Hi Pyaar Ho Lekin
Kya Pyaar Saleeb Hoti Hai

Rekha Bharadwaj has sung this soft number in an inimitable voice that envelops empathy, love, yearning, desperation and loneliness. Each line of the song has an accentuated expression. What was surprising was that, there was no church-bell or sounds of gong or a ticking clock in the song.

In the album, the above song is preceeded by another rock number Dil Dil Hai, sung by Suraj. Not many may recall but Suraj had sung the Zahreelay Zahreelay song in Rock On! Here too, Suraj has put in all his energy.

Dil Dard Ki Matki Hai, Dil Jaan Ki Aafat
Badmashiyan Karke, Dikhlaaye Sharafat
Jo Dil Ko Chura Le, Dil Uski Amaanat
Sab Ishq Ke Mujrim, Ik Dil Ki Zamaanat

John Abraham is a rock star in the movie, so I guess this song would be picturised on him. I don’t recall any rock songs of Gulzar, prior to this album, but here he gives us two gems. The words are not there as fillers, these are well meaning lyrics and not casual rhymes. Hats off to Gulzar for switching between genres/subjects of different songs without diluting the intensity. And accolades to Vishal too.

While we think that all moods have been covered, Vishal surprises us with Awaara song. Sung beautifully by Master Saleem, this is fabulous song describing a nomadic existence. A life of wantoness, moving from one place to another without being rooted.

Awaara Awaara
Hawa Pe Rakhe Sookhe Patte, Awaara
Paon Zameen Pe Lagte Hi Udd Lete Hain Dobara
Na Shaakh Judey, Na Jadh Pakdey
Mausam Mausam Banjara
Awaara Awaara

Saleem has added another dimension to the song by singing it with such gusto, else it would have become just another song. Anyhow, I fear this still could just end-up becoming one of the lesser heard songs from the movie.

And now for the Darling song that is the face of the movie as part of the first trailer.

Darling, Aankhon Se Aankhen Chaar Karne Do
Roko Na Roko Na Mujhko Pyaar Karne Do
Bekaif Hai Bahara, Bechain Jaane Yaara
Bulbulon Ko Abhi Intezaar Karne Do

I was so happy to hear Usha Uthup sing again; and alongside Rekha Bharadwaj, that was such a treat. They complement each other very well, without stomping on each other’s foot. Both bring their own uniqueness to the song and can be audibly distinguished. Also, since they have sung on different notes and pitch it enriches the hearing experience. The “rrrr” factor as in Darrrrrling and Rrrrokona is so rhythmic.

Even the reprise of the song, Doosri Darling, is fantastic. That song has a faster tempo making it sound like a remix which it is not. The two versions are very distinct, one from this land and the other from beyond the Khyber Pass, lyrically.

Finally the acoustic version of O’Mama is a slow painful reprise of the original song. The cat’s meow seems a lot mellow here as KK restrains himself. If the original was a full blown act, this is a quickie; same effect but low in intensity.

Overall, the album is a collector’s as well as a listener’s delight.

7 Khoon Maaf Lyrcis – O’Mama (Acoustic)

Gol Bana Kar Honth Bahut Paas Aaye Par
O’ Mama, O’ Mama
Unke Labh Hi Dekhte Reh Gaye Chai Par
O’ Mama, O’ Mama

Takraaye Hothon Se Phir Bhi Umeed Ho
Koi Toh Iss Tarah Aashiq Shaheed Ho
Koi Gaya Gaya
O’ Mama, O’ Mama

O’ Mama, Kanche Maare
Billi Jaisi, Aankhon Wali
Ek Meow Si Ladki
O’ Mama, O’ Mama

Unghe Kabhi, Sunghe Kabhi
Jhanke Kabhi, Aaon Kabhi
Kabhi Jaon Si Ladki
O’ Mama, O’ Mama

7 Khoon Maaf Lyrics – Doosri Darling

Meelo Chalke, Meelo Se Aya
Roos Ka Koi Pushkin Hai
Meri Khatir Moscow Chhoda
Ishq Mei Ye Bhi Mumkin Hai

Darling, Aankhon Se Aankhen Chaar Karne Do
Roko Na Roko Na Mujhko Pyaar Karne Do

Bekaif Hai Bahara, Bechain Jaane Yaara
Bulbulon Ko Abhi Intezaar Karne Do

Tuhri Waali, Ek Pahaadi, Jisme Pariya Rehti Thi
Khyber Paar, Milegi Tujhko, Saari Pariya Kehti Thi

Darling, Khadim Hoon Shehzaadi Ko Taiyyaar Karne Do
Bekraar Bekraar Hai Karaar Karne Do
Dil-E-Yaar Dil-E-Yaar Ikhteyar Karne Do

Darling Aankhon Se Aankhen Chaar Karne Do
Bekaif Hai Bahara, Bechain Jaane Yaara
Bulbulon Ko Abhi Intezaar Karne Do

7 Khoon Maaf Lyrics – Yeshu

Girje Ka Gajar Sunte Ho, Yeshu
Phir Bhi Tum Chup Rehte Ho, Yeshu
Apne Chahane Walon Ko Tum Kaise Chunte Ho, Yeshu

Kya Jism Ye Bemaani Hai
Kya Rooh Gareeb Hoti Hai
Tum Pyaar Hi Pyaar Ho Lekin
Kya Pyaar Saleeb Hoti Hai

Rui Ki Tarah Iss Jism Ko Tum
Kis Liye Bunte Ho, Yeshu

Koi Nahin Iss Waqt Yahan
Iss Waqt Mujhe Apnaana
Aagosh Mei Apni Le Lo
Phir Chaahe Jahan Le Jaana

Uss Paar To Koi Dard Nahin
Bolo Na Sunte Ho, Yeshu

7 Khoon Maaf Lyrics – Dil Dil Hai

Dil Dil Hai, Dil Hai Dil Dil Hai, Dil Dil Hai, Dil Hai Dil

Chakme Pe Chakme, Chakme Pe Chak Chak
Dil Kabhi Masti, Dil Kabhi Mastak
Chakme Pe Chakme Hain, Chakme Pe Chak Chak
Dil Kabhi Masti Hai, Dil Kabhi Mastak
Kabhi Sargoshi Hai, Kabhi Dastak De Re
Kabhi Khoon Ki Garmi, Kabhi Thandak De Re
Maano To Na Maano To, Dil Dil Hai

Sau Jannato Ke Kaabil Hai
Yeh Doobton Ka Saahil Hai
Yeh Doobton Ka Saahil Hai
Yeh Jahilon Ka Jaahil Hai
Yeh Aakilon Ka Aakil Hai
Sau Jannato Ke Kaabil Hai, Yeh Dil Hai Dil Hai Dil

Dil Dard Ki Matki, Dil Jaan Ki Aafat
Badmashi Karke, Dikhlaaye Sharafat
Dil Dard Ki Matki Hai, Dil Jaan Ki Aafat
Badmashiyan Karke, Dikhlaaye Sharafat
Jo Dil Ko Chura Le, Dil Uski Amaanat
Sab Ishq Ke Mujrim, Ik Dil Ki Zamaanat
Aaye To Na Aaye To, Dil Dil Hai

Yeh Dil Kaande Ka Dil Hai
Yeh Dil Kaande Ka Dil Hai
Sau Jannaton Ke Kaabil Hai
Aasu Raseed Iski, Yeh Dhadkano Ka Dil
Dil Dil Hai, Dil Hai Dil Dil Hai, Dil Dil Hai, Dil Hai Dil

7 Khoon Maaf Lyrics – Tere Liye

Tere Liye Tere Liye
Lafzon Mei, Lamhon Ki, Doliyan Laaye Hain
Sheron Mei, Khushboo Ki, Boliyan Laaye Hain
Humne Sau Saude Kiye, Tere Liye Tere Liye

Aankhon Mei Na Chubhe Taaron Ki Kirchhiyan
Sheeshe Ka Aasma Laaye Hain, Tere Liye Tere Liye
Taare Jadey Heeron Se Bhi Kitne Badey
Humne Aasmano Mei Lakhon Ke Saude Kiye
Tere Liye Tere Liye

Halki Si Sardiyan Aur Saans Garam Ho
Shaamo Ki Shawl Bhi, Thodi Si Narm Ho
Tere Liye Kishmish Chuney, Pistey Chuney, Tere Liye
Humne To Parindo Se, Baaghon Ke Saude Kiye
Tere Liye Tere Liye

7 Khoon Maaf Lyrics – Awaara

Awaara Awaara
Hawa Pe Rakhe Sookhe Patte, Awaara
Paon Zameen Pe Lagte Hi Udd Lete Hain Dobara
Awaara Awaara

Na Shaakh Judey, Na Jadh Pakdey
Mausam Mausam Banjara
Awaara Awaara

Jhonka Jhonka Ye Hawa
Roz Udaaye Re
Jaaki Daar Gayi Woh Toh Beet Gaya
Jaaki Maati Gayi Waka Meet Gaya
Koi Na Bulaaye Re
Rut Rang Liye Aayi Bhi Gayi
Muthiya Na Khuli Berang Rahi
Sookha Patta Banjara
Awaara Awaara

Haule Haule Ye Hawa
Khel Khilaaye Re
Ghole Dhoop Kabhi, Ghole Chhaon Kabhi
Kabhi Pankh Baney, Baney Paon Kabhi
Dhool Dikhaaye Re
Koi Tha Na Mili Na Hawa Na Zameen
Na Umeed Ugi Na Dilaasa Kahin
Udta Jaaye Bechara
Awaara Awaara
