    New Delhi, July 21: Back in 2014 before the General Elections, then chief minister of Gujarat and prime ministerial aspirant Narendra Modi gave hope to millions of Indians with his slogan "acche din" (good days).

    Four years later, most promises made by Prime Minister Modi, including two crore jobs to deposit of Rs 15 lakh in the bank accounts of all Indians, remained unfulfilled. As the Opposition and critics question PM Modi about "acche din", a Bollywood song highlights the search for "good days" by a common man.

    The song--Mere acche din kab aayenge? (When will my good days come?)--from the upcoming Hindi film, Fanney Khan, about a small-time singer and his desire to make his talented daughter a star performer, mostly talks about everyone's search for "good days".

    The beautiful song sung by music director Amit Trivedi and written by lyricist Irshad Kamil has nothing political about it. Nonetheless it finds a resonance with all the listeners at a time when the country is witnessing an unprecedented chaos and uncertainty.

    Read the lyrics of the song below and decide for yourself what it stands for:

    Khuda tumhein pranaam hai saadar
    Par toone di bas ek hi chaadar
    Kya odhein kya bichhayenge
    Mere achche din kab aayenge?
    Do roti aur ek langoti
    Ek langoti aur woh bhi chhoti
    Ismein kya badan chhupayenge
    Mere achche din kab aayenge?
    Main khaali khaali tha
    Main khaali khaali hoon
    Main khaali khaali khoya khoya sa
    Mere achche din kab aayenge?
    Ho geet nahi yeh mera dard hai
    Kaise yeh rozana hi gaata jaaun main
    Khaali khaali jebon mein khwaab hain
    Khwaab hain poore jo hote nahi
    Waqt hua nakhoon ke jaisa
    Bedardi se jisko main kaatun
    Roz zarurat aur khwahish ke
    Beech mein khud ko kaise main baatun
    Mere tukde ho jayengeMere achche din kab aayenge?
    Main khaali khaali tha
    Main khaali khaali hoon
    Main khaali khaali khoya khoya sa
    Mere achche din kab aayenge?
    Achche din, achche din ho ho ho
    Na jaane yeh kab aayenge?
