Roundup 2018 : The Top 10 Lyrics in Hindi Film Songs

PicsArt_12-23-01.40.29.jpg

After having looked at the Best Playback Performances of the year, here is looking at the songs that mesmerized the most with their words and are the Songs with Best Lyrics for the year. At times poetic, at times quirky, at times a deep emotion, at times a simple thought of life – these songs weaved magic through their words and stood out with what they said and how they said it. The poets behind these songs were true magicians of words.

Before we get into the main countdown, a special shout-out for two beautifully written love songs, both very pleasant on the ears in their poetic appeal, and good interplay of words to express love in larger than life terms. Thank you Irshad Kamil for Mere Naam Tu (Zero) and Amitabh Bhattacharya for Qaafirana (Kedarnath) for adding colors and beauty to emotions. Some special love for Gulzar too for evoking patriotism in its most unadulterated humane form in Aye Watan Mere Watan (Raazi) . Respect and only that.

And now let us look at songs that stood out for being refreshingly new and different, and yet brilliantly evocative in the emotions they were intended for bringing out through their words. Will also highlight a part of the song that really earns them their deserving spot to be the best lyrics written for the year!

 

10.) Kumaar for Tera Yaar Hoon Main (Film – Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Music – Rochak Kohli)

Aaja ladein phir khilono ke liye
Tu jeete main haar jaaun
Aaja karein phir wohi shararatein
Tu bhaage main maar khaaun
Meethi si woh gaali teri
Sun’ne ko taiyaar hoon main
Tera yaar hoon main

 

9.) Amitabh Bhattacharya for Tafreeh (Film – Bhavesh Joshi Superhero, Music – Amit Trivedi)

Kahin pe dil ke kone mein
Button hai ek nadani ka
Daba, daba, daba
Jo lamha leke aaya hai
Bubble gum ik shaitani ka
Chaba chaba chaba

Jahan saste mein milti ho
Khushi ka wo thikana hai
Kahan, kahan, kahan
Teri hi naak ke niche
Khushi maujud hai pagle
Yahan yahan yahan

 

8.) Varun Grover for Tera Chaav Laaga (Film – Sui Dhaaga – Made in India, Music – Anu Malik)

Dekh lihaaj ki chaar-diwari
Phaand li tere ek ishaare
Preet ki chaadar chhoti maili
Humne usmein pair pasaare

Kaafi hai tera saath re.. saath re…
Tera chaav laaga
Jaise koi ghaav laaga

 

7.) Gulzar for Bioscopewala Aaya (Film – Bioscopewala, Music – Sandesh Shandilya)

Laya laya laya Bioscopewala laya
Wai dekho Raj Kapoor laya
Helan ki hoor laya
Walle kuku ki choodiyan wai
Mota sa gop laya
Wai wai wai laya laya Bioscopewala laya

 

6.) Jaideep Sahni for Woh Ladki (Film – Andhadhun, Music – Amit Trivedi)

Ek sawari si ladki bawari si
Gusse mein patte si kaanpti si
Jo mera zikr sune door se bhi
Tarqeebon se dil ko dhaanpti si

Woh ladki mil jaaye to kehna
Haan woh ladki mil jaaye to kehna

 

5.) Irshad Kamil for O Meri Laila (Film – Laila Majnu, Music – Joi Barua)

Mere gunahon me
Mere sawabon me shamil tu
Bhooli atthanni si
Bachpan ke kurte me se mil tu

Rakhun chhupa ke main sab se woh laila
Maangu zamane se rab se woh laila
Kab se main tera hoon
Kab se tu meri laila

 

4.) Shellee for Daryaa (Film – Manmarziyaan, Music – Amit Trivedi)

Oho haan pyar sawal kyun hoya ji
Oho ke haal behaal kyun hoya ji

Tainu khuda manneya
Te tainu rab manneya
Koyi nahi bhullda yaara
Jivein tu hai bhulleya

Ho beh gaya hanjuan da daryaa
Tere layi ki ki nai kareya
Vekh jitte jee main mareya

 

3.) Swanand Kirkire for Chal (Film – October, Music – Shantanu Moitra)

Chal chhoti chhoti seeli shaamein
Jee lein chal
Chal aadhi aadhi thodi jhoothi chai
Pee lein chal
Chal thodi si hain meri saasein
Donon jee lein chal

Abhi tu hai, main hoon
Yeh khushboo rahegi na kal
Yehi mehak hawa mein bahegi na kal

 

2.) Amitabh Bhattacharya for Namo Namo He Shankara (Film – Kedarnath, Music – Amit Trivedi)

Mera karm tu hi jaane
Kya bura hai kya bhalaa
Tere raaste pe main toh
Aankh moond ke chalaa

Tere naam ki jot ne
Saara har liya tamas mera

Namo namo ji Shankara

 

1.) Shellee for Chonch Ladiyan (Film – Manmarziyaan, Music – Amit Trivedi)

Ikk Tu Hi Ikk Tu Hi Mainu Pasand
Preet Di Khooshboo Na Ho Jaaye Mandd
Meri Zidd Hai Teri Meri Jindd Aeh
Hass Ke Guzaraan

Sohni Sohni Si Mohabbat Ne Karyaa Hai Tang
Mundeya Teri Sohbat Ne Karyaa Hai Tang
Rangeen Fillum Jaesey Dikhatey Hain Rang
Giddhaa Ji Paaye Hai Meri Umang

Jiss Vall Vekhaan Kalander Naache Naache
Bandey Andar Paegamber Naache Naache

 

Which of these are your favorites? Happy listening to the songs again and deciding for yourself…
