Movie: This song was placed in 2015 T-Series Films and Alchemy Film Productions’ rom-com All is Well. It was produced by Bhushan Kumar, Shyam Bajaj, Krishan Kumar and Varun Bajaj and directed by Umesh Shukla. The cast was lead by Abhishek Bachchan, Asin, Rishi Kapoor and Supriya Pathak.
The movie begins with Inder Bhalla (Abhishek Kapoor) being thrown out of his home by his father Bhajanlal (Rishi Kapoor). Bhajanlal has a bakery, which does not run well financially. Inder is a wannabe song composer. But his father wants him to run his bakery, which he clearly refuses. This the father finds insulting and he throws out his only son, with the impression that his son is haughty and self-seeking. As a result, Inder hates his father forever but Bhajanlal still has some love for his son. Inder goes to Thailand with his friend Ronny (Sumeet Vyas), also an upcoming composer. Inder misses his mother Pammi Bhalla (Supriya Pathak) but hasn’t spoken to her in many years. All of a sudden, Cheema (Mohammad Zeeshan Ayub) gives Inder a call, lying to him that he has to be present in his hometown for his share of the bakery since his father had sold it.
Inder leaves behind everything to fly home. At the airport, he says goodbye to his girlfriend Nimmi (Asin). But he does not know that she is also returning to India. On reaching India, both of them catch the same taxi and Nimmi insists on visiting his place. It is at this time that Nimmi thinks about this song.
Song: Lyrics are by Mayur Puri and music is composed by Himesh Reshammiya. Some of the lyrics are a take off from a namesake song from Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988). The music is also similar.
The gist of the song is, “O my travel companion, wait for a little while. Our destination is beckoning to us.”
Video: Cinematography is by Sameer Arya. The titles run during this song.
The video opens with Asin and Abhishek Bachchan hugging each other. The music and the song begin in the background as Asin opens her closed eyes. Her eyes are filled with tears. They move away from each other and go in opposite directions. She turns back to look at him. But, he has moved on.
Both catch the same cab. Both need to reach Gurdaspur. So, the cabbie insists that both sit together. When they sit together in the cab, on the way, Asin looks at him with warmth. But, he turns her face away from him without even a glance at her. When they reach her home, she finds Abhishek Bachchan in deep slumber. She tells to the cabbie to take her to his home.
When Abhishek Bachchan gets up, he finds Asin lying with her head on his lap. They reach Abhishek Bachchan’s home and he climbs down the cab. She is still sitting in the cab. He says farewell to her and the cabbie.
Artists: Singer is Tulsi Kumar. The onscreen performance is by Abhishek Bachchan and Asin.
Cultural Influence: This typically filmi female version of the song where the heroine thinks that she has to just wait for some time for her impending union with the hero. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
