lut gaye

anonymous asked:

I would usually think it unimportant and a random song/film he likes but when he put it in the context of where he learned about love that song choice "kehna hi kya" meaning (what can I say?) from the film Bombay is important. The film is about two people who can't be together because of their different religions and there families disapproving it but they fight against it and end up happily married with kids anyway. That song is about when they first see each other and it's love at first sight

could be totally random but with zayn I doubt anything ever is. And it isn’t the kind of film you “learn your moves for the ladies” or whatever they said. It’s a really painful but beautiful film and I think zayn knew they wouldn’t know what it’s about so he used that to his advantage

I think this is all one ask. Forgive me if I’ve combined two different people’s asks. But thank you for sharing. That’s super interesting.  

I found an interpretation of the lyrics:

–CHORUS–
Gumsum gumsum gup chup, gumsum gup chup - 2
(Silent and secretive, silent and secretive)
Halchal halchal ho gayi teri, honth hai tere chup
(You are all shaken, your lips are silent)
Khalbal khalbal ho gayi teri, baithi hai tu gupchup
(You are all disturbed, you are sitting silently)
Pyaare pyaare chehre lekar dediya ishaara
(With your lovely face you’ve given us hints)
Dekha teri aankhon mein hai sapna koi pyaara
(We have seen that there is some sweet dream in your eyes)
Humse gori naa tu sharma, kehde humse zara - 2
(Don’t be shy of us, tell us a little)
–FEMALE–
Kehna hi kya yeh nain ek anjaan se jo mile
(What is there to say, my eyes met with a stranger)
Chalne lage mohabbat ke jaise yeh silsile
(As if a love story has started)
Armaan naye aise dil mein khile, jinko kabhi main naa jaanoon
(Wishes that I never knew before are blooming in my heart)
Voh humse, hum unse kabhi naa mile, kaise mile dil naa jaanoon 
(If he and I never met, I don’t know how our hearts would have met)
Ab kya kare, kya naam le, kaise unhe main pukaaroon
(What do I do now, what is his name, how can I call him?)
Kehna hi kya yeh nain ek anjaan se jo mile
(What is there to say, my eyes met with a stranger)
Chalne lage mohabbat ke jaise yeh silsile
(As if a love story has started)
Armaan naye aise dil mein khile, jinko kabhi main naa jaanoon
(Wishes that I never knew before are blooming in my heart)
Voh humse, hum unse kabhi naa mile, kaise mile dil naa jaanoon
(If he and I never met, I don’t know how our hearts would have met)
Ab kya kare, kya naam le, kaise unhe main pukaaroon
(What do I do now, what is his name, how can I call him?)
Pehli hi nazar mein kuch hum, kuch tum ho jaate hai yun gum
(At first sight him and I got a little lost)
Nainon se barse rim jhim, rim jhim humpe pyaar ka saavan
(A shower of love fell dripping from our eyes)
Sharm thodi thodi humko aaye to nazarein jhuk jaayen
(When I got a little shy my eyes turned downward)
Sitam thoda thoda humpe shok hawa bhi kar jaaye
(A breeze of wind also gave me a little torture)
Aisi chali, aanchal ude, dil mein ek toofaan uthe
(It blew such that my sari flew, a storm brewed in my heart)
Hum to lut gaye khade hi khade
(I was totally taken while standing)
Kehna hi kya yeh nain ek anjaan se jo mile
(What is there to say, my eyes met with a stranger)
Chalne lage mohabbat ke jaise yeh silsile
(As if a love story has started)
Armaan naye aise dil mein khile, jinko kabhi main naa jaanoon
(Wishes that I never knew before are blooming in my heart)
Voh humse, hum unse kabhi naa mile, kaise mile dil naa jaanoon
(If he and I never met, I don’t know how our hearts would have met)
Ab kya kare, kya naam le, kaise unhe main pukaaroon
(What do I do now, what is his name, how can I call him?)
–CHORUS–
Gumsum gumsum gup chup, gumsum gup chup - 2
(Silent and secretive, silent and secretive)

(Don’t be shy of us, tell us a little)
–FEMALE–
In honthon ne maanga sargam, sargam tu aur tera hi pyaar hai
(These lips asked for a song, the song is you and your love)
Aankhen dhoonde hai jisko har dam, har dam tu aur tera hi pyaar hai
(What my eyes search for at every moment is you and your love)
Mehfil mein bhi tanha hai dil aise, dil aise
(Even in a crowd my heart is alone like this)
Tujhko kho naa de, darrta hai yeh aise, yeh aise
(My heart fears losing you like this)
Aaj mili aisi khushi, jhoom uthi duniya yeh meri
(I got such happiness today, my whole world is dancing)
Tumko paaya to paayi zindagi
(When I found you I found life)
Kehna hi kya yeh nain ek anjaan se jo mile
(What is there to say, my eyes met with a stranger)
Chalne lage mohabbat ke jaise yeh silsile
(As if a love story has started)
Armaan naye aise dil mein khile, jinko kabhi main naa jaanoon
(Wishes that I never knew before are blooming in my heart)
Voh humse, hum unse kabhi naa mile, kaise mile dil naa jaanoon
(If he and I never met, I don’t know how our hearts would have met)
Ab kya kare, kya naam le, kaise unhe main pukaaroon
(What do I do now, what is his name, how can I call him?)
Kehna hi kya yeh nain ek anjaan se jo mile
(What is there to say, my eyes met with a stranger)
Chalne lage mohabbat ke jaise yeh silsile
(As if a love story has started)
Kehna hi kya
(What is there to say)

Zayn Malik, why are you like this?

Interesting it’s told from the perspective of falling in love with a man. Can this and “I figured it out” all from the same interview just be happenstance? I’m really thinking this was really all Zayn. Beautiful.
