Movie: This song appeared in 2006 hit Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision and K Sera Sera’s comic movie Golmaal – Fun Unlimited (Deception with Confusion – Fun Unlimited) directed by Rohit Shetty and produced by Dhillin Mehta. The movie starred Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Sharman Joshi, Tusshar Kapoor, Rimi Sen, etc.

The story is about the naughty foursome Gopal (Ajay Devgn), Madhav (Arshad Warsi), Lucky (Tusshar Kapoor) and Lakshman (Sharman Joshi). The intelligent student Lakshman is diverted from a good performance by his mischief-monger friends Madhav, Gopal and Lucky. Lucky is a mute man in the movie. Lakshman’s friends use Lakshman’s hostel room for their mischiefs and pressurize him to run a series of scams for earning some money. The latest among them is leaking and selling an exam paper.

The dean (Manoj Joshi) is furious with them and literally throws them out of the college. Students of today can give their teachers a nervous breakdown. A moneylender Vasooli (Mukesh Tiwari) is following them and to escape from him, the foursome reaches the bungalow of a blind couple Somnath (Paresh Rawal) and Mangala (Sushmita Mukherjee). The couple is waiting for their grandson Sameer and mistakes Gopal to be him by his voice. They think that their grandson is Lakshman by touch.

All the 4 fall in love with the saucy-next-door neighbor Nirali (Rimi Sen). She tells them that she will be participating in a couple race the next day and Madhav and Lakshman, in a female disguise, decide to participate in it too. Nirali mentions couple race. But, she does not mention if the race would be on foot or in a vehicle. That information is taken for granted. The director takes us through a hilarious sequence of the race, Madhav wins the race and he is expected to donate the money he won to charity.

At midnight on Valentine’s Day, Gopal, Madhav and Lucky visit Nirali’s room to propose to her. Nirali gets offended and tells them that she would meet them at 2 the next afternoon at the old blind couple’s place to tell them, whom she was in love with. The next day, Somnath realizes that Nirali is expected there since ‘Sameer’ tries to convince him into going for a walk. But, Somnath does not leave and tells them his love story. They all go into flashback mode when Somnath is young and can see well. So, is Mangala. Mangala and Somnath sing this song at this time.

Song: The lyrics were penned by Vishal Dadlani and the music was composed by Vishal-Shekhar.

The girl asks, “Why do you follow me like a bee? Why do you look at me like impatient people? Are you crazy about me? Why do you need to see me so often? Do you have some work with me? Just tell me.”

The boys pop up trying to convince the man to confess his love for the girl, again and again. Eventually, the man proposes to the girl.

Video: Cinematography is by Aseem Bajaj. Dance choreography is by Ganesh Acharya.

The video opens with Sushmita Mukherjee running toward some girls to begin to dance and sing to the tune of the music, which has already begun. The picture is in black and white. She is wearing a village girl’s dress courtesy Vaijayantimala in Madhumati (1958). The song is also being sung by the playback singers in the nasal style of those sung in the 1930s-40s-50s movies.

Paresh Rawal is also swaying in glee as Sushmita Mukherjee walks backward rhythmically toward him. Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Sharman Joshi and Tusshar Kapoor jump up close to Paresh Rawal and sing some lines convincing him to confess his love. The music is also faster at this point. It’s back to Sushmita Mukherjee and the other girls.

They are wearing colorful costumes and suddenly the picture turns black and white. The picturization of the entire song is in the retro style. Sushmita Mukherjee is pouring water from her metal pot for Paresh Rawal to drink. But, he is squatting and watching her. The water runs down to be wasted. The foursome is back and the color is also back.

They again try to convince Paresh Rawal. Paresh Rawal is seen dancing with a thick gold bangle in each of his hand in black and white and puts them around Sushmita Mukherjee’s wrists. That is the way he proposes in retro style. The song peters out and the video ends as Paresh Rawal and Sushmita Mukherjee are seen together.

Artists: The playback of this song was sung by Shekhar Ravjiani and Sneha Pant and the onscreen performances are by Sushmita Mukherjee, Paresh Rawal, Ajay Devgn, Tusshar Kapoor, Sharman Joshi, Arshad Warsi and others.

Cultural Influence: This typically filmi song has some influence of the movies of black and white times on it – music and dance-wise. The retro music is very good, comic and refreshing. The song and the artists are good and the video is watchable for the same.
