634 : Music 51 : Dhan Te Nan (From Kaminey)

Should go straight up there with the top songs for 2009. If I were to rate for this year, I would put

1. Arziyan (From Delhi 6)
2. Masakalli (From Delhi 6)
3. Dhan Te Nan (From Kaminey)

Of course bubbling under, is Pehli Baar Mohabbat (from Kaminey again!!). This year has been a drought. Hardly any good songs coming our way.

Dhan Te Nan is outstanding gushes of vocals from Sukhwinder and Vishal Dadlani. Lyrics are cool (Gulzar) and music is riffy and rocky (Vishal Bharadwaj)

I have added my own translations where I think it would matter.

[Aaja aaja dil nichode, raat ki matki tode,
Koi goodluck nikaale, aaj gullak to phode] -2 times

(Come on, lets squeeze the (items in the) heart,
                     Lets break the vase of the night,
Remove the good luck (out) of the (broken) part,
                    Today, lets break the piggy bank (right!!)

[Hai till till taala mera teli ka tel,
Hai kaudi kaudi paisa paisa paise ka khel]- 2 times

(My bottle is made of several drops of oil,
This game of money is made of coins and coins of toil)

Chal chal sadko pe hogi dhan tan,
[Dhan te nan, te ne ne na…. ]– 3 times

Aaja aaja dil nichode, raat ki matki tode,
Koi goodluck nikaale, aaj gullak to phode…
Aaaja aaja….

Heyyy…aaja aaja…

Aaja ki oneway hai yeh zindagi ki gali,
Ek hi chance hai,
Aage hawa hi hawa hai agar saans hai to,
Yeh romance hai.

(One way street – that is this life,
                           This is the only chance (we) have,
Future looks windy, if the breath is rife….
                            Then this is a romantic wave….

Heyyy…
Aaja ki oneway hai yeh zindagi ki gali,
Ek hi chance hai,
Aage hawa hi hawa hai agar saans hai to,
Yeh romance hai.

Yahi kehte hai yahi sunte hai,
Jo bhi jaata hai jaata hai,
Wo phir se aata nahi.

(This is what we have said and heard,
One who goes never comes back again…)

Aaj ya kal nichode, saath ki matki tode,
Koi goodluck nikale, aaj gullak to phode.
Hai till till taala mera teli ka tel,
Hai kaudi kaudi paisa paisa paise ka khel
Chal chal sadko pe hogi dhan tan,
[Dhan te nan, te ne ne na…. ]– 3 times

[Koi chaal aisi chalo yaar ab ki samandar bhi pull pe chale,
Fir tu chale uss pe, ya main chalu shehar ho apne pairon tale]- 2 times

(Walk the walk in such a way that even the ocean clings to the bridge,
Then, whether you and me walk on it, (dont matter), we are the (still) the rulers of the ground beneath our feet!!)

Kahin khabrein hai, kahin khabrein hai,
Jo bhi soye hai khabron mein unko jagaana nahi.
(There is news here and there,
Lets wake those who are still sleeping (inspite of being part of the news))

Hooo aaja aaja dil nichode, raat ki matki tode,
Koi goodluck nikaale, aaj gullak to phode…
Aaja..aaja…

[Hai till till taala mera teli ka tel,
Hai kaudi kaudi paisa paisa paise ka khel] -2 times

Chal chal sadko pe hogi dhan tan,
[Dhan te nan, te ne ne na….] – 3 times
