Lyrics :-
यारा सिली सिली, बिरहा के रात का जलना
यारा सिली सिली, बिरहा के रात का जलना
ये भी कोइ जीना हैं, ये भी कोइ मरना

टूटी हुयी चुडीयों से, जोडू ये कलाई मैं
पिछली गली में जाने, क्या छोड़ आयी मैं
बीती हुयी गलियों से, फिर से गुजरना

पैरों में ना साया कोइ, सर पे ना साई रे
मेरे साथ जाए ना, मेरी परछाई रे
बाहर उजाला हैं, अन्दर विराना..

Yaara Seeli Seeli Birha Ki Raat Ka Jalna
Yaara Seeli Seeli, Yaara Seeli Seeli

O Yaara Seeli Seeli, Dhola Seeli Seeli
Yaara Seeli Seeli Birha Ki Raat Ka Jalna

Yeh Bhi Koi Jeena Hai, Yeh Bhi Koi Jeena Hai
Yeh Bhi Koi Marna

Yaara Seeli Seeli, Birha Ki Raat Ka Jalna
Yaara Seeli Seeli, Dhola Seeli Seeli

(Tooti Hui Choodiyon Se Jodoon Yeh Kalaai Main
Pichhli Gali Mein Jaane Kya Chhod Aayi Main) - 2

Beeti Hui Galiyon Se, Beeti Hui Galiyon Se
Phir Se Guzarna

Yaara Seeli Seeli, Dhola Seeli Seeli
O Yaara Seeli Seeli, Birha Ki Raat Ka Jalna

Yaara Seeli Seeli, Dhola Seeli Seeli
(Pairon Mein Na Saaya Koi, Sar Pe Na Saanyi Re
Mere Saath Jaaye Na Meri Parchhaayi Re) - 2

Baahar Ujaala Hai, Baahar Ujaala Hai
Andar Viraana

Yaara Seeli Seeli, O Dhola Seeli Seeli
O Yaara Seeli Seeli, Birha Ki Raat Ka Jalna
Yaara Seeli Seeli, Dhola Seeli Seeli
Yaaraaaa, Dholaaaa, Yaaraaaa, Dhola, Yaara, Dhola

Lekin (But..) is a Hindi drama film made in 1991, loosely based on a short story by Rabindranath Tagore, and directed by Hindi lyricist Gulzar. It stars Vinod Khanna, Dimple Kapadia, Amjad Khan, Alok Nath, and Beena Banerjee, and featured a special appearance by Hema Malini.

The film was produced by Indian songstress Lata Mangeshkar, whose rendition of "Yara Seeli Seeli" won the 1991 National Film Award for Best Female Playback Singer. The song also won film's lyricist, Gulzar, both the 1991 National Film Award for Best Lyrics and the 1992 Filmfare Best Lyricist Award. The film's music director, Lata's brother Hridayanath Mangeshkar, won the 1991 National Film Award for Best Music Direction. Other awards included the National Film Award for Best Art Direction for Nitish Roy and National Film Award for Best Costume Design for Bhanu Athaiya

Storyline :-
The movie takes place in the Indian desert state of Rajasthan, which gives it something in common with Rudaali, another off-beat drama set in Rajasthan that was released around the same time and also featured Dimple Kapadia and Amjad Khan.

The plot centers around a government employee, Sameer Yogi (Vinod Khanna), who is sent to Rajasthan to take inventory of items in the abandoned haveli(mansion) of the long-deceased Maharaja Param Singh (Vijayendra Ghatge). When he arrives in Rajasthan, he meets his old friend Shafi (Amjad Khan) who is a tax collector in the area and lives with his wife Sharda (Beena Banerjee).

Sameer begins seeing what he thinks could very well be visions of another time and place, visions that he is shown by a beautiful woman he encounters by the name of Reva (Dimple Kapadia). But is Reva real or just a figment of Sameer's imagination? The drama that unfolds catapults Sameer into a different time and place and shakes his own personal foundation of reality, even as Shafi and his wife fear that their old friend may be losing his mind. In addition to the excellent performances and overall haunting quality of the cinematography, the plot twists and guest appearance of Hema Malini add to the film's charms.

Also, as much as Sameer, Reva and Shafi, the desert of Rajasthan itself is a character in this film. Rolling sand dunes and long-deserted havelis create a sense of mystery and wonder, the stuff of dreams (or nightmares).
