The song, Mujhse mohobbat ka izhaar karta, appears in the T V Films and Tahir Husain Enterprises’ romedy Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke (1993). Produced by Tahir Husain, the movie was directed by Mahesh Bhatt and the star-cast included Aamir Khan, Juhi Chawla, Tiku Talsania, Kunal Khemu, Sharokh Bharucha, Baby Ashrafa, etc.
Rahul Malhotra (Aamir Khan) receives the custodianship of a heavily-in-debt garments factory and his sister’s 3 mischievous children. Combined, these are things he had not bargained for when he is summoned by his deceased sister’s lawyer Homi Wadia (Tiku Talsaniya). The work at the factory is not going at the required pace. They need to complete 1 lakh shirts within a specific time period. When he reaches the factory, he gets to know that the workers are young girls and the girls begin to flirt with him.
Due to the fact that he has to convince the client Bijlani (Dalip Tahil) for some more time to complete the workload; Rahul comes home late, that night. The kids behave arrogantly and are punished by Rahul by locking them inside their room. They escape via an open window.
On the other hand, Vaijayanti (Juhi Chawla) escapes from her home when her father locks her up in her room for refusing to marry his choice. Vaijayanti and the kids meet at the carnival and get caught while cheating at a game stall. They strike a friendship with each other and after they come out of the carnival grounds, the kids understand that Vaijayanti has nowhere to go and tell her to come with them to their home. Vaijayanti also complies with the request.
The kids keep her hidden in the house. But, how long can a full-grown adult be hidden in a small house? Post a long drawn out comic sequence, Vaijayanti’s presence is discovered by Rahul, who tells her to leave. Rahul relents when she gives a cock-and-bull-story about her being an orphan and allows her to be the housemaid at their home.
Vaijayanti teaches Rahul and the kids how to enjoy life together and adjust with each other. She also teaches them how to balance discipline and caring. Soon, Rahul and Vaijayanti fall in love with each other and one day, they sing this song. They have not confessed their love for each other till now.
Song – Mujhse mohobbat ka izhaar karta
The song, Mujhse mohobbat ka izhaar karta, was penned by Sameer and set to tune by Nadeem-Shravan.
The song goes this way, “I wish a boy would fall in love with me and tell me so.”
Video – Mujhse mohobbat ka izhaar karta
The cinematography is by Pravin Bhatt. Dance choreography is by Nimesh Udayan-Raju Khan-Madhav Kishan.
The video opens with Aamir Khan playing with the kids – Kunal Khemu, Sharokh Bharucha and Baby Ashrafa – in the rain. Juhi Chawla avoids the rain and is standing under a sheltered roof. She begins to sing this song.
The kids run to the shelter, having enough of the rain. Aamir Khan begins to sing and dance in the rain. Juhi Chawla imagines that she is alone with Aamir Khan and he expresses his love for her.
On an outing, Aamir Khan tries to teach Juhi Chawla how to drive a car. But, she almost messes it up. One night, they enjoy at a campfire. The song peters out as they are returning home. The video also ends there.
Mujhse mohobbat ka izhaar karta was sung by Alka Yagnik and Kumar Sanu for Juhi Chawla and Aamir Khan and the 3 kids – Kunal Khemu, Sharokh Bharucha and Baby Ashrafa also appear in the video.
There is no influence of any culture on this song. This is another of my favorite romantic songs written by Sameerji. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
