Ab hai saamne, ise chhoo loon zara, mar jaaun ya jee loon zara..

Sonu Nigam after a long time recites a song that has made people mad about him once again. If not people, at least me. And the song does deserve the attention it seems to be getting right from day one. It has not just good music and superb singing, the lyrics of the song are lovely too.

Interestingly, Ajay-Atul, the composers of the song, have relied a lot on the melody of the song and Sonu's singing, not giving much heavy music here, while some of the restricted beats remind me of some A R Rahman songs sung by Sonu only, I guess close to Des ki Mitti (Bose - The Forgotten Hero).

As for Sonu, he ranges from the sweet and simple in the beginning to almost bursting the heart out when he comes to the 'ab hai saamne, ise chhoo loon zara' part of the song. In fact he has the particular lines sung at higher and lower pitches than the normal as well, with the antaras.

Amitabh Bhattacharya's lyrics look simple, though he goes Gulzar-ish with touching a moment, making it almost tangible. However other than that, lyrics are all simple but quite moving with the way Sonu sings it.

The lyrics and translation for the song can be found in THIS POST.
