This is one of my all time favorite track and no matter how many times i hear it, i keep bouncing back to feel the essence of melody that lies in it once in a while.
The series originally aired in India on SAB TV from April 30, 2007, to January 17, 2008. Beginning June 11, 2007, the series was re telecast on sister network Sony Entertainment Television. Although the show was dropped from SET’s line-up in India within months, the series was telecasted until its completion on SET’s international feed, Sony Entertainment Television Asia, which aired the concluding episode of the series on January 31, 2008.
I don't watch television regularly but managed to watch selected episodes of a television serial called “LOVE STORY”. It used to come on SAB TV on mondays to thursdays at 9 pm, usually the time when i have my dinner. It was based on the outline of a college campus repeated love story with similar previously heard theme but the presentation was totally different in comparison to any other television show. The best part of the serial was undoubtedly its songs and music score.
The genre of songs was basically rock. Lyrically oriented soft metal based rock emotional sing along songs were the highlight of this mini series. Many songs of this ranging from the title track “dil karta hai naadaniyan” faboulously sung by rana majumdar to the lyrical beauty “mujhse milne ke woh karta tha bahane kitne” touched the deepest chords of my heart, but this particular song “teri yaadein” had made me addicted to itself. The credits showed the band “cactus” for the whole music of the serial but unfortunately and most shockingly this particular track is a part of plagiarism, sung by a Pakistani band called IMIK, the song was a part of their first album Zamana Badlay Ga - released in 2005. The song was titled as Piya.
""teri yaadein,mulaakaatein,wo raatein aur baatein
teri saansein,wo baahein ab mujhko yaad aayein
tere bina mera jeeya sataaye,kyun piya yaadon ne teri mujhpe ye jaado kiya re""
""teri saansein,wo baahein ab mujhko yaad aayein
wo adaaon ki ghataayein,mere dil ko chu jaayein
pyaari ye duniya saari,maine hai tujhpe waari,dil ne--mere dil ne tujhse,yaari ye baazi hari""
MERE KHAYALON MEIN--KHAYALON MEIN BAS TUM
MERI NIGAHON MEIN--NIGHAON MEIN BAS TUM
WAAPAS AA JAAO....MERE PAAS TUM SAADAA---WAAPAS AA JAAO.
The lyrics of the song and its composition captures both the pain of separation and the jubilation of the good times spent together in the same monotone! Awesome i must say is the way it is being sung in all its versions. The initial picturization of the song, i.e the video added as “teri yaadein(male version) is my favourite and no other such footage ever telecasted on indian television makes me feel the way it does. :)
