Song “Channa Mereya” (my moon, addressing to his lady love) is sung by Arijit Singh, composed by Pritam and written by Amitabh Bhattacharya. The song is a soulful connection, a heartbreak track, underlying the mood of a wedding ceremony will melt your heart with teary-eyes. The lead Ranbir Kapoor aka Ayan makes the bride Anushka Sharma aka Alizeh cry from his emotional song.
In the visuals we see Sharma is dressed in bridal wear and Kapoor is dressed like a groom. During the lyrics of “Andhera tera maine le liya,Mera ujla sitara tere naam kiya, Channa mereya mereya..” (I have taken your darkness and my bright shiny stars are yours now. O my moon!, o my moon!, o my beloved moon), Kapoor seems to be drunk and expressive towards Sharma for their bond of friendship. Sharma looks like a Muslim bride points towards reconciliation of Sharma’s and Fawad Khan’s marriage by help of Kapoor. Through the lyrics of “Acha chalta huoon, duao mein yaad rakhna, mere zikar ka zubaan pe swaad rakhna” (okay, I’ll leave now, remember me in your prayers, and keep the taste of my mention on your tongue), Kapoor confesses his love to Sharma,change in Sharma’s expression shows her realization towards Kapoor’s feeling and she is left confounded, deciding whether to marry Khan or not.
Overall the lyrics and composition of the song is perfect, it will pierce straight into your heart and make you emotional. Fashion standard matches the wedding celebration; Sharma drape in lehenga, jhumar and nath and Kapoor draped like a groom with henna decorated hands.
