Lyrics & Chords

Mr.Shaniruh’s request to sing this song and one of my fav songs from roja.The film’s successful and acclaimed score and soundtrack were composed by A. R. Rahman, who debuted in Tamil as a music director with this film. He won the National Film Award for Best Music Direction, Filmfare Award for Best Music Director – Tamil and the Tamil Nadu State Film Award for Best Music Director for his work in his debut film. This soundtrack is among the “10 Best Soundtracks”.S.P.B won the best playback singer award in tamil for this song.

Roja (English: Rose) is a 1992 Tamil political drama, romance film directed by Mani Ratnam. The film was subsequently dubbed in Hindi, Marathi, Malayalam and Telugu languages.

Here iam presenting this beautiful song friends…Hope you all will like my performance.I again thank Mr.Thinkal govind kumar for his lovely mix and mastering.Please comment at your leisure.Thanks a lot frnz.

Headphones recommended for better listening.

Movie:Roja (Rose)

Roja jaaneman tu hi mera dil
Tujh bin tarse naina
Dilse na jaati hai yaadein tumhaari
Kaise tum bin jeena
Aankhon mein tu hai
Aansu mein tu hai
Aankhein band kar loon
To mann mein bhi tu hai
Khwaabon mein tu
Saanson mein tu
Roja jaaneman tu hi mera dil
Tujh bin tarse naina

Chhooke yoon chali hawa jaise chhoo gaye ho tum
Phool jo khile thay vo shool ban gaye hain kyon
Jee raha hoon aisliye dil mein pyaar hai tera
Zulm seh raha hoon kyon intezaar hai tera
Tumse mile bina jaan bhi na jaayegi
Kayamat se pehle saamne tu aayegi
Kahan hai tu
Kaisi hai tu

Roja jaaneman tu hi mera dil
Tujh bin tarse naina
Aankhon mein tu hai
Aansu mein tu hai
Aankhein band kar loon
To mann mein bhi tu hai
Khwaabon mein tu
Saanson mein tu

Thandi Thandi ay hawa tera kaam kya yahan
Meet nahin paas mein chaandni tu laut ja
Phool kyon khile ho tum zulf nahin vo yahan
Jhuke jhuke aasmaan meri hansi na uda
Pyaar ke bina meri zindagi udaas hai
Koi nahin hai mera sirf teri aas hai
Khwaabon mein tu
Saanson mein tu

Roja jaaneman tu hi mera dil
Tujh bin tarse naina
Aankhon mein tu hai
Aansu mein tu hai
Aankhein band kar loon
To mann mein bhi tu hai
Khwaabon mein tu
Saanson mein tu

Music, along with a few pleasant memories of someone special can transport one from a state of loneliness, filled with pain to an ethereal state of solitude, filled with the thoughts of that person… This song fits the bill to fall under that category of special songs… :) As for me, every time I listen to this song, it has intrigued me , to back-flip and stay in my past for a few minutes at least… ARR must have conceived this tune during his days of first love… :D

Annan! You are a virtuoso… :) That innate feel thingy you have in your voice has given me the same experience that I get, while listening to the original… Guess you have already covered the tamizh version of this song… Inspired! :) More such endearing melodies please…

If there is affinity, no matter how bitter it could be, one is always contented… If there is no affinity, let love be in your heart…

Brilliant soul-stirring rendition, Srini. Everything was just perfect. You could have asked me to sing the lalalas – I love this song. You have put your heart and soul into this… Loved it.

Farmaaish for you, please sing either “Abhi mujh mein kahin” or “Tum hi ho”. It will surely be a masterpiece.
