Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

ae aeee
aeeee ae

o babuaa
ye mahuaa
lagaa hai ae
o babuaa
ye mahuaa
lagaa hai
aa mere saans jalte hain
badan mein saanp chalte hain
tere binaa…aaaaa
na na na
na na naaa
o babuaa
ye mahuaa
lagaa hai

shaam sulagti hai
jab bhi
tera khayaal aata hai
sooni si gori baahon mein
dhuaan saa bhar jaata hai
barfeela raastaa
katataa nahin
zehreelaa chaand bhi
hatataa nahin
tere bina
na na na
na na na
o babuaa
ye mahuaa….aaa
lagaa hai……
aa mere saans jalte hain
badan mein saanp chalte hain
tere binaa
na na na na
na naaa

khoyee huyee si aankhon se
chaadar utar jaati hai
jhulsi huyee
reh jaati hoon
raat guzar jaati hai
aise mein tum kabhi
dekho agar
kaataa hai kiss tarhaa
shab ka safar
tere bina
na na na na
na na
o babuaa
ye mahuaa
lagaa hai
aa mere saans jalte hain
badan mein saanp chalte hain
tere binaa
na na na na
na na

I do not know about this actress…never even heard her name until film “dirty picture”. and I haven’t seen dirty picture film …or any of Smitha movies.
Sadly this will be the first and last for me.

Is mediocre the New “Good?”
The special effects are pretty bland, the whole dance sequences fails miserably.
The goofy, time-wasting, silhouette dance sequences has no place in this song.
