Mana ke hum yaar nahin – Parineeti Chopra – Sachin-jigar – Parineeti Chopra | Meri Pyari Bindu (2017)


I found another song from this movie. But, it was not in the copy of the movie that I saw. I am not sure where this song fits. 🙁 So, I just made a calculated guess. This is the female solo version of this song.

Movie: This song appeared in 2017 Yash-Raj Films’ romantic drama Meri Pyaari Bindu (My Lovely Bindu) produced by Aditya Chopra and Maneesh Sharma and directed by Akshay Roy. The movie featured Ayushmann Khurrana, Parineeti Chopra, etc.

Abhimanyu Roy (Ayushmann Khurrana) and Bindu Shankaranarayanan (Parineeti Chopra) are best friends since their childhood. Abhimanyu has always been in love with Bindu much to the chagrin of his mother. He never conveys his real feelings to Bindu and is happy with just friendship. He helps her in her ambition to become a singer and they visit a club for an audition. Soon, Bindu’s mother (June Malia) expires in an accident. Bindu is heartbroken and blames her father for the tragedy since he was driving the car under the influence of alcohol. Her resentment toward her father grows and forces her to leave college and shift to her maternal aunt’s place in Melbourne, Australia.

At the same time, Abhimanyu completes his M.Sc. and joins MBA in Bangalore. When he goes to Goa for a vacation, he meets Bindu. She informs him that she is engaged. Abhimanyu is heartbroken and goes to Mumbai to work in a bank. Bindu calls him to a Mumbai restaurant to tell him that she cannot marry her fiancé since he ran away. Abhimanyu begins their friendship with newfound enthusiasm and helps her going out of his way. Soon, Bindu falls in love with Abhimanyu and he is elated at the revelation.

Together, they work for the fulfillment of Bindu’s desire to become a singer. Her first album is a failure. Bindu is frustrated that she is unable to make it big in the music industry and again leaves him on the day he proposes to her. After she leaves, she misses Abhimanyu and sings this song.

Song: The lyrics of this song were penned by Kausar Munir and the music was composed by Sachin-Jigar.

The girl sings, “Granted, we are not lovers. It is decided that we are not in love with each other. But, don’t let our eyes meet. I cannot trust my heart.”

Video: Cinematography is by Tushar Kanti Ray.

The video opens in Parineeti Chopra’s room. She moves toward the white-curtained window. In the next shot, she approaches some orchestra instruments and a mike. She is, now, sitting in front of the mike in a chair and playing a guitar. She is singing, too. She is missing her beloved. She is now alone in her room drinking tea.

Whenever she is singing a stanza, she is shown with the orchestra. Otherwise, she is shown in her room. She looks at a small tape recorder and a cassette. She listens to a cassette through the small tape recorder. The song peters out and the video ends as she smiles near the mike.

Artists: The playback has been sung by Parineeti Chopra and the onscreen performances are by Parineeti Chopra.

Cultural Influence: This typically filmi melodious song, admitting that the lead pair is not in a love relationship. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
