Lyrics Diary- Mana ki Hum Yaar Nahin


With the advancements in sound technologies there is a rise in songs being sung by the actors, and more often than not despite being the chartbusters they dont have the zing enough to captivate the hearts of music lovers. I accept that i;’m a bit prejudiced wrt their songs and when I heard that like her sister, Parineeti Chopra has also turned a singer I was a bit sceptical to hear the song.
But coincidently I got to hear the song as it queued up in my playlist. Though the voice of Parineeti was certainly not reaching the perfect octave for the song still it was soulfull enough to deliver the meaning and emotions of the lyric directly to the heart of the audience.

The lyricist Kausar Munir deserves a round of applause for weaving out a song in which there is a lot to be read between the lines. The sadness inbibed in the song captivates you slowly and makes one craving to listen it in the loop.

So, enjoy this well crafted song which I will be putting in the list comprising of songs which makes me to watch the movies just for the song.

Song Title: Maana Ke Hum Yaar Nahin
Movie: Meri Pyaari Bindu
Singer: Parineeti Chopra
Lyrics: Kausar Munir
Music: Sachin-Jigar

माना की हम यार नहीं
लो तय है के प्यार नहीं
माना की हम यार नहीं
लो तय है के प्यार नहीं
फिर भी नज़रें ना तुम मिलाना
दिल का ऐतबार नहीं
माना के हम यार नहीं

Yes! I agree that we are not friends and it is certain that there is no love between us. With a negative line at the start the poetess has accepted that the relationship is beyond reconcililation and it is benefecial for both of them to forget the relationship which was of a best friend forever and love for eternity. The pain is letting go the relation is which once formed the base of life is clearly elucidated here by negating the very existence of the relationship.
Still ! please don’t let our eyes meet for they’ll again lead me into the trap of love which I’m trying to evade with all my efforts.

रास्ते में जो मिलो तो
हाथ मिला ने रुक जाना हो ओ..
साथ में कोई हो तुम्हारे
दूर से ही तुम मुस्काना
लेकिन मुस्कान हो ऐसी
के जिसमे इकरार नहीं
नज़रों से ना करना तुम बयां
वो जिसे इनकार नहीं
माना के हम यार नहीं

Whereas first stanza showed the steely resolve of the Munir, she started melting in the second one as she says: if we bump into each other accidently, do shake hands with me, and if you are with someone else atleast give me a smile. Her desperation comes from the fact that somewhere in her heart she feels he’d try to avoid her or she too might try to avoid. The smile which you’d give should be Devoid is any confessions.The next line is certainly a gem changing the narrative of the song, with your eyes don’t spill the beans that you still love me.

फूल जो बंद है पन्नो में तो
उसको धुल बना देना
बात छिड़े जो मेरी कहीं
तुम उसको भूल बता देना
लेकिन वो भूल हो वैसी
जिसे बेजार नहीं
लेकिन वो भूल हो वैसी
जिसे बेजार नहीं
तु जो सोये तो मेरी तरह
एक पल भी करार नहीं
माना की हम यार नहीं

Please destroy every message and every evidence of our connection and if by chance someone sees anything connoting me, refute any bearings by labeling it as a mistake. Please don’t feel guilty for the mistake and feel bad about it.

And in this last line slightly high pitched voice setup the conclusion of the song, Tu jo soye to Meri Tarah ek pal bhi karar nahi. The line may mean many things either the poetess is cursing him to have sleepless nights like her or she might be thinking that he too is tossing and turning in sleep.

Whatever the meaning of the last line be , the song is certainly a winner celebrating the unfulfilled love.

P.S. It was a pleasure watching the video of the song after I wrote up this piece. The smile which Parineeti keeps all the while singing the song gives an perfect tribute to the song.

Happy reading

Perfect lyrics already and you did great justice to it Prankies.

The song already expresses so much…still I would like to highlight some phrases 

फिर भी नज़रें ना तुम मिलाना
दिल का ऐतबार नहीं
माना के हम यार नहीं
लेकिन मुस्कान हो ऐसी
के जिसमे इकरार नहीं
नज़रों से ना करना तुम बयां
वो जिसे इनकार नहीं
तुम उसको भूल बता देना
लेकिन वो भूल हो वैसी
जिसे बेजार नहीं
Please don’t feel guilty for the mistake and feel bad about it.
