Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke (1993) – A Complete Analysis

  1. Natrajan Iyer’s (Veeru Krishnan) behavior is called creepy by an information website. But, I find him an effeminate man behaving like a teenaged girl. A normal girl would not want to marry such a guy forget Vaijayanti (Juhi Chawla), who is a little Tom Boyish. A Tom Boy or any normal girl would prefer a guy smarter than portrayed by the character of Natarajan.
  2. Besides, male Bharatanatyam dancers are not so feminine.
  3. Vaijayanti runs away from home and meets the kids Munni (Baby Ashrafa), Vicky (Sharokh Bharucha) and Sunny (Kunal Khemu) at a carnival. While coming out of the carnival grounds, she decides to go with the kids to their home. Isn’t this a little risky for a girl – I mean going to an unknown home?
  4. How can Vaijayanti stay with the kids and Rahul (Aamir Khan) knowing that he is young? Young or old, this is another risky situation. Rahul seems to be a decent person. But, not all would be so.
  5. Rahul seems to an educated person. But, he signs a document Bijlani (Dalip Tahil) brings to him, without reading. This is a risky situation, as well and appears improbable for an educated person.
  6. In one of the shots during the song, Woh meri neend mera chain mujhe lauta do…, Juhi Chawla slides down a wall to sit on the floor. She is wearing a frock and her thighs show. They had dimmed the lighting and the camera was at an angle. But, someone must have seen her nudity. Once I had read somewhere that the movie makers ask the female artists, who come for the audition if they can drop their clothes when the makers say. If the artists reply with an affirmative without batting an eyelid, they are considered to be good actors and are given the role. This is nothing but exploitation of the artist. A good artist is the one, who can expressively move their eyes and show the required feelings through facial movements. No wonder, Indian classical dance artists are still in demand all over the world, even now. These artists are fully clothed and do not need to drop their clothes to be expressive.
  7. Music by Nadeem-Shravan and lyrics by Sameer are beautiful. I love all the songs.

Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke (1993)

Bambaise gayi Poona…

Yunhi kat jayega safar…

Mujhse mohobbat ka ikraar karta…

Woh meri neend mera chain mujhe lauta do…

Ghoonghatki aadse…

Yunhi kat jayega safar (version 2)
