Movie: This song is featured in the 1988 movie Tezaab (Acid). Produced and directed by N Chandra, this is a typical Bollywood masala action movie promoted as a violent love story released in 1988. The movie starred Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Anupam Kher, Kiran Kumar, Annu Kapoor, Chunky Pandey, etc.

This song was not included in the movie when it was made. But, the video is available on the net.

Song: Music is by Lakshmikant-Pyarelal and lyrics are by Javed Akhtar.

The girl and the boy are challenging each other, saying, “Why should we accept you as our beloved? Do something, which will prove your worth.”

Video: Director of Photography is Baba Azmi. Dance choreography is by Saroj Khan.

The video opens with Madhuri Dixit beginning the song standing on the balcony of an upper floor of the bungalow. A wedding is happening in the bungalow. She is standing with some girls. Anil Kapoor is on the ground floor with some boys. She climbs down the stairs and begins to dance to the tune of the song. Every expression she gives is similar to Sridevi.

Anil Kapoor begins to sing and dance. There is a subtle reference to Sridevi, in the song mentioning her name, as well. Then, the lead pair shakes a few legs together. They, soon, express their love for each other in several words and expressions. While Madhuri Dixit performs these verses, she acts like Suchitra Sen!

Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor are lifted up on the shoulders of their own friends. All the people present in the bungalow gather in the main hall and clap their hands, which takes the song toward its end. The music rises to a crescendo and the song and the video end abruptly.

Artists: Anuradha Paudwal and Sudesh Bhosle sing the song on playback, while Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit and others perform it onscreen.

Cultural Influence: This is a typically filmi romantic dance song, performed during a wedding. The song and the artists are very good. The video is watchable for the same.
