A heartfelt track, mixed with dreamy lyrics, and sprinkled with endless love; Tum Hi Aana from Marjaavaan, is a beautiful composition, and simply touches the heart every time it is heard.
More than just a track, this song – on its own – is often described as an emotion. The song opens with a pianica and uses several other instruments adding to its beautiful harmony. Various versions of the song (including a happy, sad and duet rendition) were released, with the impressive music composed by Payal Dev, and tracks sung by Jubin Nautiyal and other artists.
Personally, I believe the most adored element of this song is its beautiful, poetic lyrics. Exceptionally written by Kunaal Vermaa, the lyrics simply touch the soul and spark feelings of wistfulness. Lines such as “Humein poocho kya hota hai bina dil ke jiye jana…” (translation: Ask me what it is to live without a heart), are simply mellifluous and beautifully harmonized.
Moving on to the video, actors Riteish Deshmukh, Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria can be seen in the lead roles. The song seems to represent the tragic event of the film, and is perfectly aligning with the lyrics to the track. Thorough emotions and tragedy are wonderfully expressed through the song, aiding it to have been one of the top tracks of 2019.
Overall, Tum Hi Aana is a beautiful melody, and is by far one of the finest romantic songs of 2019. The song matched up to its expectations in no time after its release, and could easily make its way into many playlists. Amazing work.
