This is another in the series of posts about the movie Baahubali – The beginning.

I happened to see the movie in Hindi and felt the songs were rather misplaced and didn’t make sense at times. This was probably also because the only exposure to the movie was a fleeting glimpse of the trailer and not prior listening of the songs.

A few days later, I happened to listen to the Telugu versions of the song and felt that the songs linked to the story rather well. So searched for the lyrics and meaning of the songs.

The following is the Dheevara (Telugu) and Khoya Hain (Hindi) song and its meaning and you’ll see why I felt so.

For those who haven’t seen the movie (you can see it part1 here and search for part 2), the protagonist has been trying to climb a huge waterfall for ages without success. Then, one day, he finds a mask that falls from top of the waterfall, realises it’s of a beautiful maiden and renews his quest to climb it.

Telugu Lyrics Translation Hindi Lyrics Translation
Honana honana honana hona nachana Honanahonana honana hona… Do you like me? Khoya hain khoya hain khoya hain khoya din aise The day is lost just as
Honana honana honana hona anthagaana Honanahonana honana hona… Do you like me? That much? Lehro mein lehro mein khoi hai munde yaar jaise My heart is lost like a drop in the waves
Andhani lokapu chandrikanai aahvanisthunna Like a star of the outer galaxy I’m welcoming you Taaro chamke jiski do aankhe main hi to hun na I am the one whose eyes shine amidst the stars
Allari aashala abhisarikanai neekai chusthunna Like a beautiful maiden I’m looking for you Jharno mein gaaun main jheelo se bolu aake tu sunna I am the one who sings amidst the waterfalls

Alasina solasina When you’re tired, Tere liye saanse chale I breathe for you and only you
Odilo ninnu laalinchanaa Won’t I cradle you in my lap and lull you? Aa jee le tu sang saajna Come and let us live together
Adugunai nadapanna Won’t I become you step and walk you through, Sun le zara tujhe piya Let me tell you something, my love
Nee janta payaninchana And become your partner in your journey? Dildaar maine chuna I chose you as my soul mate
Padi padi thalapadi I’ll fall and fight for you Jaha jaha jaayegi tu Whereever you go
Vadi vadi thvarapadi vasthunna yedhemaina I’m coming earnestly towards you, come what may! Waha waha aaunga main roke se main na manu Whether I stumble and fall, with haste I will come
Sigamuni vidicheena shikharapu jalasiri dharalni I’m coming against the mountainous waterflow that has left the head of Lord Shiva jhoka hu hawao ka main thamna theher jana kya jaanu I am but a sudden gust of wind I stop for no one
Jatha jutamla dheekoni I’m facing (the water) like how the hair strands (of Lord Shiva) has bound it… Jo parbat bhi mujhe roke If a montain tries to stop me
Savalani theginchi neevaipu dhoosukosthunna I’m challenging all of it and racing towards you Mujhe roke main tod kar use uda dun do pal mein I will break free of it in no time
