Ek Shaqs – Abhijeet Sawant

The nation’s first Indian Idol, Abhijeet Sawant, shot to fame when the entire country became enchanted with his voice. His first album “Aap ka Abhijeet” was a hit too. Now he has come up with his second album – Junoon – which I think has got more depth in it than the previous one. The first video to be aired “Junoon” gave us a new Abhijeet with much stronger vocals. But it’s this song “Ek Shaqs” which has impressed me. The song ‘Ek Shaqs’ wrtten by Saeed quadri makes for a wonderful listening and has been rendered beautifully by Abhijeet. I could really connect with song when it goes “Ek din kisi baat pe jab woh rooth gaya tha, us haadse ke baad, yeh dil toot gaya tha” – cause ..it’s in a moment that things go wrong and never in your wildest dreams would you have thought of it… and how your world falls apart and what you are left with is just memories of moments spent with that one person.

Ek Shaqs – Lyrics

Ek Shaqs Raaste mein kahin chhoot gaya thha
Uss haadse ke baad yeh dil toot gaya thaa
Ek Shaqs Raaste mein kahin chhoot gaya thha
Uss haadse ke baad yeh dil toot gaya thaa

Woh shaqs jiske kaandhe pe sir rakh ke main soya
Seene ke jiske kayi baar main roya
Jisske zulfon ke khooshbu mein raaton mein khoya
Jis jism ke barsaat mein yeh jism bhigoya
Ek din kisi baat pe jab woh rooth gaya thha
Uss haadse ke baad yeh dil toot gaya thha
Ek din kisi baat pe jab woh rooth gaya thha
Uss haadse ke baad yeh dil toot gaya thaa

Rehta hoon qaid ab bhi jiske yaadon ke pehre mein
Hai dum jiske aaj bhi mere baahon ke ghere mein
Jiske khwaabon ko main ne neend mein sanjoya
Jiske ashqon ko maine apni aankhon mein piroya
Ek din kisi baat pe jab woh rooth gaya thha
Uss haadse ke baad yeh dil toot gaya thha
Ek din kisi baat pe jab woh rooth gaya thha
Uss haadse ke baad yeh dil toot gaya thaa

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Ek Shaqs Raaste mein kahin chhoot gaya thha
Uss haadse ke baad yeh dil toot gaya thaa
Ek Shaqs Raaste mein …..raaste mein….

Om Shanti Om’s six-pack punch!

So finally the verdict is out…Om Shanti Om beat Saawariya at the box office!!! Om Shanti Om, is an entertainer that’s on its way to becoming a big hit. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s fairy tale-like love story, Saawariya failed to connect with the audience, and is set to be a major flop, at least that’s what the trade pundits say! People have long been speculating about the fate of these two much-hyped movies!! SRK didn’t just turn out to be a winner at the BO in India but also beat Tom Cruise who starred along with Robert Redford and Meryl Streep in the political drama Lions for Lambs in the US. Om Shanti Om grossed a mighty $17 million gross in India and an estimated $4 million in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and the UAE.
