Video – Dil diyan gallan
The cinematography is by Marcin Laskawiec-Arkadiusz Tomiak-Piotr Uznanski. Dance choreography by Vaibhavi Merchant.
The video opens with a shot of the Austrian Alps. Salman Khan is preparing breakfast. Katrina Kaif wakes up from her bed and putting on her slippers, she walks in the direction of the sound from the radio. The video seems to be a promotional one. As Katrina Kaif climbs down the staircase, contraptions gently drop confetti on her.
The song has already begun. Salman Khan watches her from outside. Katrina Kaif passes the radio, amused. She goes out the door to perceive Salman Khan ready with the breakfast in the snow. He gently jerks the confetti from her hair and as she leaves he picks her on his shoulder. Then, it is night and they have a candlelight dinner.
Next, it’s day and he throws liquid colors on the snow and paints her picture on the white ground. They watch some movies that they made of themselves and fall asleep. They wear formal party dresses and perform some dance steps. The song peters out and the video ends as some sky lanterns fly upward.
Atif Aslam sings this song in the background. Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif appear in the video.
The romantic song, Dil diyan gallan, does not appear to have the influence of any culture on it. The song and the artists are fine. The video is watchable for the same.
