The movie starred Salman Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Deepak Dobriyal, Anupam Kher, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Manoj Joshi, Deepraj Rana, Arman Kohli, Swara Bhaskar, Aashika Bhatia, etc.
Prem Dilwale (Salman Khan) collects donations for the Delhi-based Princess Maithili’s (Sonam Kapoor) Uphaar Foundation. Prem idolizes Maithili. But, she is engaged to Prince Vijay Singh (Salman Khan again) of Pritampur.
Unknown to all, Vijay encounters a near fatal accident while returning from his step-sisters’ place. On the other hand, Prem gets the chance to meet Maithili in person. Prem and his friend Kanhaiya (Deepak Dobriyal) leave for Pritampur since she is expected there for Prince Vijay’s coronation ceremony. On the way, he meets the head of palace security staff Sanjay (Deepraj Rana) and the man is stunned that Prem is the Prince’s exact look-alike.
Sanjay takes Prem and his friend to the fort. Sanjay goes to a hidden chamber in the fort where the Prince is being treated. The Prince was saved by the palace loyals when the accident had occurred. With the Prince’s coronation in 4 days, he is in a coma. Sanjay eventually convinces Diwan Sahab (Anupam Kher) that Prem can act as a front for the Prince until the latter recovers.
Diwan Sahab convinces Prem to do the job. He agrees, but, refuses money in return for doing the job. Diwan Sahab tells Prem about the Prince’s mannerisms. He also tells him about the love-hate relationship between the Prince and his step-sisters Princess Chandrika (Swara Bhaskar) and Princess Radhika (Aashika Bhatia). Diwan Sahab informs him that the Prince’s step-brother Prince Ajay Singh (Neil Nitin Mukesh), CEO of Pritampur Estate Properties Chirag Singh (Arman Kohli) and the Price’s secretary Sameera (Samaira Rao) were in cahoots with each other and had plotted the death of the Prince Vijay Singh. But, there was no proof against them as yet. In all this façade, Kanhaiya’s role is to keep Sameera away from Prem. If she came close to him, she would be able to know that it is not the real Prince.
Everything goes fine until Princess Maithili arrives. She is not happy about their relationship. She wants to know where she stands as far as the Prince is concerned. She has several complaints about the Prince, which she enlists in a song. In the next few days, Maithili is very impressed by what Prem or the Prince does. Prem’s loving behavior changes all and Chandrika and Radhika also become friends with him. Maithili falls deeper and deeper in love with Prem. But, Prem is unable to reciprocate her feelings because he knows that she is betrothed to the Prince. She sings this song at that time.
Song: The music of this song was scored by Himesh Reshammiya and the lyrics were penned by Irshad Kamil.
The girl says, “If it were our night of union, what kind of talk would happen between us. We have heard that when people fall in love, lamps get lit on their own. The body, heart and eyes also get lit up
Video: Cinematography is by V Manikandan.
The video opens with Sonam Kapoor picking up a feather pen and runs the feather on Salman Khan’s face and hers. The song has already begun in the background. She hands over the feather pen to him and sits on a seat nearby. She moves her hair from her back and shows it to him.
He begins to write on her back as she begins to sing. She tries to go close to him. But, he moves away. She catches hold of his hand to stop him. He disentangles his hand from hers, leaving the feather pen in her hand. She takes him to a platform where a lot of white flowers are spread. They sit down and he tucks some flowers in her hair.
She closes all the doors to the garden from the inside. When she comes close to him, he has tears in his eyes. He tries to move away but she compels him to embrace her. He again moves away from her. The song peters out and the video ends there.
Artists: The playback of this song was sung by Shabab Sabri, Vineet Singh, Anweshaa and Harshdeep Kaur and the onscreen performances are by Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor.
Cultural Influence: This typically filmi song where the heroine is happy that she had fallen in love with the hero and she expects romantic love from him. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
