Kailash Kher – Kailasa – Teri Deewani – Review

Wow.. in one word sums up this song by Kailash Kher. Although initially my super conservative mind refused to accept the song, when M mentioned that he was a superb singer. Slowly as I sat and listened to the song and looked at the video, the shackles started loosening and then broke loose as the song played in my mind over and over… lifting all reservations against this amazing artist.

I will be the first to admit that my reservations against this guy’s song Teri Deewani were dead wrong. He can sing man!!

Furthermore, full credit goes to the video’s director and the guy who came up with the idea of the video. It’s so human. So, relatable.

You have a purview of various people in love going about their daily motions of professing their love for their special someone, whilst the background is filled with his earthy tone and hi-pitched, yet throaty raspy voice. The rest is filled with excellent back vocals, base, guitaring, all kept in supreme melodious synchronisation by the drumming!

Another of the things that really took my breath away was the girl dancing in the fast fading dusky sun, with the fireworks in the background. It was simply divine!!

There’s something about his songs that really captivate you. Their lyrics seems to trascend me to another place. Although I don’t really understand ’em!! Like what most of the Americans say about Indian religions, It’s mystical man!! ;-)!

Anyhoo, this got me into listening some of his other songs!! Another song that really stood out was Allah ke Bande! I had seen the vdo of this, and had liked the song, even though it isn’t exactly my preferred genre. Then he had short hair, and he himself was playing the guitar. I was completely beguiled that the same person was actually singing Teri Deewani. I never expected it to be the same person, although the voice similarity was uncanny.

Even Allah ke Bande is extremely captivating. Try out both the songs. Worth it!!

My rating – 4.5/5

  1. The lyrics of Teri Deewani

    Preet ki lath mohe aaisi laagi
    Ho gayi main matwaali
    Bal bal jaaun apane piya ko
    Ke main jaaun vaari vaari
    Mohe sudh budh naa rahee tan mann ki
    Yeh toh jaane duniya saari
    Bebas aur laachar phiru main
    Haari main dil haari
    Haari main dil haari

    Tere naam se jee loon
    Tere naam se marr jaaun
    Tere naam se jee loon
    Tere naam se marr jaaun
    Teri jaan ke sadke mein kuchh aaisa kar jaaun
    Tune kya kar dala marr gayi main mitt gayi main
    Ho ji ha ji ho gayi main
    Teri deewani deewani
    Teri deewani deewani
    Tune kya kar dala marr gayi main mitt gayi main
    Ho ji ha ji ho gayi main
    Teri deewani deewani
    Teri deewani deewani

    Ishq junoon jab hadh se badh jaaye
    Ishq junoon jab hadh se badh jaaye
    Hanste hanste aashiq suli chadh jaaye
    Ishq ka jaadu sar chadhkar bole
    Ishq ka jaadu sar chadhkar bole
    Khoob laga lo pehre raste rab khole
    Yahi ishq di marzi hain
    Yahi rab di marzi hain
    Yahi ishq di marzi hain
    Yahi rab di marzi hain
    Tere bin jeena kaisa
    Aagush kar di hai
    Tune kya kar dala marr gayi main mitt gayi main
    Ho ji ha ji ho gayi main
    Teri deewani deewani
    Teri deewani deewani
    Teri deewani deewani
    Teri deewani deewani

    E main rang rangili deewani
    E main rang rangili deewani
    E main albeli main mastani
    Gaaun bajaaun sabko rijhaaun
    E main diru taraph se begaani
    Ee main deewani main deewani
    Tere naam se jee loon tere naam se marr jaaun
    Tere jaan ke sadle mein kuchh aaisa kar jaaun
    Tune kya kar dala marr gayi main mitt gayi main
    Ho ji ha ji ho gayi main
    Teri deewani deewani
    Teri deewani deewani
    Teri deewani deewani
    Teri deewani deewani…

  2. The song teri deewani if heard with depth is a female song (lyrics meant to be sung by a female) but is being sung in a male voice sung by kailash kher, it seems something unusual . what does the song exactly mean was guessed by my mom, who said this is being sung by the Aatma which in actual is a female and the final destination is to meet the Param- atma (the Almighty) and is restless and is singing. the same was confirmed by kailash kher in his interview on the radio – fm. all of us are aatmas who are restless to meet the devine paramatma. just an extremetly beautiful concept.

    tears of joy rolled down on listening to this song after the real meaning came to picture.

  3. Hearing Tere Deewani Sung by kailash Kher, makes me feel like outoff the world. Its beautiful, each and every sentence says something.
    And above all the voice of Kailash make this song more n more absolutely fabulous and fantastic.

    I love this song ………it touches my heart.

  4. Kailash Kher’s Teri Deewani is absolutely captivating and it actually took me to listen to it twice to really grasp the depth of the song. I felt it that it had something to do with God and nature and all about the love of the being. This guy can touch your inner feelings and he deserves to be on the top of the world. He’s so humble in his songs and whoever did the clip actually showed that. That life is not all about being wealthy and succesful.. It’s also about the miseries and the simple things that actually go unnoticed in our life. I love this guy.

  5. the words which match ur cicumstances, in real touches ur heart..i feel pain while listing this song…it make me weep…so i somtimes wantd to do so…when my stress of my grif make me so dead … i love this song more then my gal friend…coz it only make me sad

  6. This song is so intense, so full of emotion that you just can not be uncaptivated and untouched by hearing those superb lyrics in HIS heart-rendering voice. My favourite part of the song is the part “tere bin jeena kaisa, paap hi karni hain”. Someone leave my message to kailash : Go for a reprise of “Mitwa” from Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna..It would be very nice.

  7. i love all the songs of kailsh kher,,i’m a great fan of him ..
    n 1 of the most emotional song is “o sikandar”
    n 1 of the top devotional song i like is “alaah ke bande”..
    toota toota ek parinda aisa toota
    ke phir judna paayaa
    loota loota kisne usko aise loota ke phir udna paaya
    girta hua wo aasmaa se aakar gira zameen par
    qwaabon me bas the baadal hi the wo kehta raha magar .
    allah ke bande hasde .,. alaah ke bande
    and i’m very glad to hear “teri deewani” songs..

  8. amazing..out of this world voice..no words can describe what this song does to the heart esp someone in love….totally awesome..

  9. tere naam say g lon tere naam say mar jawoon,,, teray jan k sadke main kuch aiysa kar jawon,,, tu ney kia kar dala mar gaie main met gaie ma,,, ho g! han g! ho gaie ma teri tewani teri dewani teri dewani ………. nice……… from Bangash …
    I L0\/E N

  10. the entire album is awsome the person has a soul in his voice…i’ve never heard a singer who has such a sufi touch…….teri deewani is awsome whenevr i listen to the song it has to be atleast 5 times before i go to the next track :)….even dilrubba is very touchy tough the lyrics are that of a typical traditional love song but the way it has been sung as well as the music gives beauty to the song……
    lov the uff in tauba tauba ;)….believe it or not Allah kay banday gives me immense strength whenever i’m going through a hard time in life it makes my belief in Allah stronger than ever n by the end of the song i’m always smiling never has any song left such a deep impact on me ……hope we continue to hear stuff like tht frm him in future as well

  11. Can someone please pleaaase submit the meaning for these lyrics??

  23. on the one who knows the value of love has the ability of understanding this song coz this song has all the points tht 1 has to go through the time of his love


  25. Kailash Kher is my most favorite singer!!!!! He has such a beautiful and extra-ordinary voice. Teri Deewani is a very touching song and only Kailash can sing it so perfectly.

  26. Yes, i think this is that song for which i am waiting from many years..
    Kailash is the singer who gives a respective position for the suffi path lyrics as well as heart close songs. I think we are lucky so that we can hear & see such songs in our life which changes our thinking totally..

  27. Thanks for entertaining us with this great song, ” TU NAY KIA KARDALA????”
    I love this song by the core of my heart. Thanks again.

  28. This is a soul searching number, though there are many sufi redentions but no one has been able to reach those inner depths of so called soul. My all time favourite sufi number..hats off to this guy..as rightly said simple souls are always touchy.

  29. superb….! song reflects the restlessness of true lover who doesnt get way to reach its destination (towards God ). this song is the best example of sufi soul.

  30. kailash kher’s voice is unique.it’s a tremendous voice.there is a feel in his voice.His voice comes through his heart.this song is endless.when he sing, he forgot every thing expect SARSWATI MATA.

  31. I really dont know what to say about Kailash kher… its just that I fee like listening to “Teri Deewani, Tu Meri jaan hai, SAIYYAN, Babam Bam and he others when I’m sad & when I’m Joyous & when m tired & early in the morning when I start my day & when I fight with the special one in my life and when I’m with her n celeberating life to the fullest… I think … m in love with the voice and the way all the songs are sung and the songs… Sayyiaaaaaaan Saiyaaaaaaaaaaan….. Laa laaa laaaaaaa … mmmazing…!!!
