Aate jate haste gaate – S P/Lata – Raam-Lakshman | Maine Pyar Kiya (1989)


I had met Dev Kohliji in the beginning of my career. He looks like a Sai Baba incarnate. He has given up the material world. Well, almost. But, look at the song he wrote for this movie.

One thing he told me was striking. He said that sometimes he just looks at nothing and keeps his mind empty of thoughts. This is an interesting way of relaxation.

Me with Dev Kohliji

Movie: This song appeared in 1989 Rajashri Productions’ romantic musical hit film Maine Pyar Kiya (I have fallen in love) directed by Sooraj Barjatiya. The movie starred Salman Khan, Bhagyashree (debut), Reema Lagoo, Alok Nath, etc.

This song appears during the titles in the beginning of the movie.

Song: The lyrics were penned by Dev Kohli and the music was scored by Raam-Lakshman.

This song is the affirmation of the fact that the man and the girl have fallen in love with each other.

Video: Cinematography is by Arvind Laad. Dance choreography is by late Jay Borade.

The video opens with a man standing and a girl on her knees in front of him. They are in shadows. The music has begun and so has the titles. The couple begins to dance and a male voice begins the song in the background. The sets are of a village scene – all in shadows.

Red light is shown on the couple, but still, their faces are not clearly seen. Soon, a female voice begins to sing in the background. The couple hugs and the song peters out. The video ends as the camera zooms on a village house in broad daylight.

Artists: The playback of this song was sung by S P Balasubramaniam and Lata Mangeshkar. The onscreen performances are by unknown artists.

Cultural Influence: This typically filmi song is an affirmation of love between the man and the girl. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
