When I first heard that they were making ‘Aashiqui 2‘, I was very skeptical; not about the story or direction but about the music. Aashiqui had without a doubt, some of the best songs from Bollywood in that era. It was only when I heard this song, I realized that maybe I was underestimating the talent that has slowly grown to maturity in last few years.

While I didn’t really think ‘Aashiqui 2’ was a great film, I will find it very hard to deny that the music didnt move me. Ironically this isnt my favorite song in the movie, but it is easily the most popular one. Here is my translation of this beautiful song:

Song: Tum Hi Ho
Movie: Aashiqui 2
Music: Mithoon
Singer: Arijit Singh

Hum tere bin ab reh nahin sakte
Tere bina kyaa wajood mera

{adinserter 2}

I can’t survive without you now,
Without you, what identity do I have…

Tujh se judaa gar ho jaayenge
To khud se hi ho jaayenge judaa

If I get separated from you,
I’ll be separated from myself..

Kyonki, tum hi ho
Ab tum hi ho
Zindagi, ab tum hi ho
Chain bhi, meraa dard bhi
Meri aashiqui ab tum hi ho

Because, you are the one…
Now, you are the one…
My life, You are the one…
My peace, my pain,
My love, you are the one…

Tera mera rishta hai kaisa,
Ik pal door gawaaraa nahi.
Tere liye har roz hain jeete,
Tujh ko diyaa mera waqt sabhi.
Koi lamhaa mera, naa ho tere bina,
Har saans pe naam tera.

What is this relationship between you and me,
Even a moment of separation is unacceptable.
For you, I live each day,
To you, I give all my time.
There shouldn’t be a moment of mine without you,
(My) Every breath has your name…

Tere liye hi jiyaa main,
Khud ko jo yoon de diya hai
Teri wafaa ne mujh ko sambhaala
Saare ghamon ko dil se nikaala
Tere saath mera hai naseeb judaa
Tujhe paa ke adhoora naa raha

Only for you, I lived
I have given myself (to you)
My faith in you, took care of me
Took away all the sorrows from (my) heart
With you, my destiny is attached,
Finding you, I am no longer incomplete.

Kyonki, tum hi ho
Ab tum hi ho
Zindagi, ab tum hi ho
Chain bhi, meraa dard bhi
Meri aashiqui ab tum hi ho

Because, you are the one…
Now, you are the one…
My life, You are the one…
My peace, my pain,
My love, you are the one…
