Dont Say Alvida

Lyrics & Chords

Have been pretty busy for a while now with a variety of things on my plate. Was not planning on recording anything but heard this one on MTV and couldnt resist myself ! Beautiful song,beautiful lyrics,beautiful tune, beautiful voices – what more do you need ! Melody still rules !! The song is from the movie ‘Main Aur Mrs.Khanna’. Sajid-Wajid has composed this chartbuster which has already topped the Bollywood top 10 list in most websites. Sonu Niigam and Shreya Ghoshal have rendered this in their own sweet way. Must say they are the Kishore-Lata of this age. What amazes me with these two singers is how easy it sounds when you hear the song and yet when you try to sing it you understand how difficult it is to get the small things right. Amazing duo ! I hope they live a 100 years to give us more of such music pleasure.

Vidyu has been kind enough to lend me her vocals to complete this one. She sounds absolutely amazing. I bet Shreya would be very happy to hear her version :-) I am a little bit rusty but i hope you will still lend your ear to listen to our humble attempt.

The movie just released on the occassion of Diwali. Here’s wishing you all a very happy and prosperous Diwali. Khub mithai khao aur khilao :-) God Bless and thanx for listening :-)

Song : Dont Say Alvida
Movie : Main Aur Mrs. Khanna
Original Singers: Sonu Niigam and Shreya Ghoshal

Lovely one, Soumitra and Vidyu! Very expressive vocals both of you – just saw the Youtube video. I loved how both of you said “do…d say alvida” with that silent n ;-)
5/5 indeed,

Welcome back Soumitra.
What a song to pick. Incidentally, we heard this live last Saturday from none other than Sonu Nigam himself. This was the first time I was hearing this and liked it very much.
Both of You sang it with great feel and expressions. New songs are difficult to cover but that’s not the case here. It was a fab effort.
5/5 and my fav. Don’t be surprised to se no. of plays increasing as I will be listening to it back to back.

Soumitra da…… very sorry to be so late…. Jantam na je gaan upload korechho…. Bhishon bhishon bhalo geyechho…. Haven’t heard the original….so it sounds like an original to me…. Did you say you are Rusty…. ha ha ha….ha if this is rusty then what will happen if you feel as ease…. :D Vidyu’s voice sounded very fresh in this one…. Hearing one of her songs after a long time…. Very precise singing as always…. Overall very very very good professional presentation…. the track could have a tad lounder & basier…. felt that only the singers are taking all the credits for the song with lesser existances of other artifacts of backing…. Never the less a damn 5 for sure for fab singing by both of you….:D

Very well rendered Soumitra. This song is topping the charts ? That is kind of surprising. You were not rusty at all Soumitra – very nicely done u guys. Soumitra : You dont have any marginal offs in recent songs at all. This shows your tremendous dedication to details. Great job.

This goes to my favs list for your singing. the tune hardly has any stuff.

Hats off to you for attempting a rank new song. New songs are very difficult to sing in my opinion. Liked the control you have in your voice and the modulations you made. Vidyu was good too. Will listen to your other renditions too.
