Movie – 100 Days (1991)
The song, Pyaar tera pyaar kheench laya mujhe, was featured in the Jayvijay Enterprises’ psychological thriller 100 Days (1991), directed by Partho Ghosh and produced by Jay Mehta. The movie starred Jackie Shroff, Madhuri Dixit, etc.
Devi (Madhuri Dixit) is prone to getting odd dreams while waking up. Once she is playing tennis with her friend, Sudha (Sabeeha) and she gets a vision that a girl is being killed by an unseen man in a black coat. She narrates the dream to her friend and says that something is going to happen. That night, Sudha collects her friends including Sunil (Javed Jaffrey) to make fun of Devi’s day dream. Later, Sunil goes away abroad due to a music contract he has with a company. Devi’s sister, Rama (Moon Moon Sen) disappears and can’t be found despite several attempts of the family.
Five years later, Devi’s dream still haunts her. Business Tycoon Ram Kumar (Jackie Shroff) enters her life after a tricky situation at the wedding of Sudha. He even finds out where Devi lives and actually buys the opposite bungalow at a higher than the market rate to be close to her. She throws a conch shell to break the window of his bungalow when he creates a lot of noise in the neighborhood.
One day, Sunil appears and convinces Devi to join him for a music event. Ram Kumar is the chief guest at the event and reads out a letter. Nobody except Devi realizes that the letter is a marriage proposal meant for her and written by him. Soon, Ram Kumar and Devi get married with the blessings of her uncle (Ajit Vachchani), though Sunil is not happy with Devi’s decision.
Devi gets visions of some objects like a decorative wall hanging and the print magazine Priya, with the cover of a horse. Sunil and Devi visit the office of Priya magazine, looking for the magazine issue that she had seen in her vision. But, the editor categorically declines that they did not have any such issue in the past, nor were they planning any such issue for the next 6 months.
Ram Kumar has to leave Devi alone at their home for 3 days, due to some official work. On their wedding day, Ram Kumar gets possession of his ancestral mansion. Devi takes up the task of cleaning it up, now and finds several items at Ram Kumar’s ancestral home that she had seen in her visions. She removes a wall décor and finds that the wall had been built very unprofessionally.
Instinctively, she brings digging tools and breaks down the wall, to find… to find a skeleton. The skeleton had a chain similar to the one her sister Rama had woren just before she had disappeared. At that time, Rama had also given her a similar chain, saying that these were unique. The cops are called and the skeleton is confiscated.
Several questions arise. Who was the dead person and most importantly, how did the dead body come inside a government-sealed house? The police inspector (Shivaji Satam) is not convinced that the dead body is of Rama, though Devi tries to convince him. He says that the chains are commonly available in artificial jewelry shops. Those were the times when there was no DNA testing prevalent for such mysterious cases.
That night when Devi is alone in the bungalow, she feels like Rama is calling out to her through this song.
Song – Pyaar tera pyaar kheench laya mujhe

Video – Pyaar tera pyaar kheench laya mujhe
The cinematography is by Arvind Laad. The choreography is by Partho Ghosh.
The video begins with Madhuri Dixit watching a piece of furniture moving in circles. She also sees a girl’s legs with light anklets. Moon Moon Sen enters the mansion’s compound in a white sari and begins to sing this song.
The girl playing the older sister walks through the other girl, indicating that she is a ghost. Madhuri Dixit walks back some steps toward Moon Moon Sen, who turns into a skeleton. The former screams and runs away.
The lights get switched on and off alternatively. Soon, the song peters out and ends. The video also ends as Moon Moon Sen moves out of the mansion’s gates, which shut in her wake. The video also ends as Madhuri Dixit is left yearning for her sister.
Lata Mangeshkar sings this song for Moon Moon Sen. Madhuri Dixit is also seen in the video.
There is no influence of any culture on the song. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the dance choreography.
