Do you remember Shah Rukh Khan’s special appearance in the 2002 romantic drama, Saathiya? Me neither. But I’m pretty sure we all remember the iconic tracks like Saathiya, Chupke Se and O Humdum Soniyo Re. Just the mention of Saathiya’s soundtrack gives me chills.
We expect nothing less from the two-time Oscar-winner, A.R. Rahman. This won’t come as surprise as he practically owned the 90s and 2000s. The man was non-stop.
The two leads of Saathiya
Before getting into brawls with A-list Bollywood actors, Vivek Oberoi was giving hits like Saathiya. He was cast opposite a much more established actress, Rani Mukerji.
To everyone’s surprise, the couple managed to sizzle the screens with their chemistry. Saathiya owes its success (apart from the music, of course) to Vivek Oberoi and Rani Mukerji.
Music Video of Chupke Se
Saathiya and Bunty Aur Babli’s director, Shaad Ali is a blessed man, musically speaking. But to be honest, the music video of Chupke Se is pretty basic.
Ali directs this music video with a fistful of clichés. Dress changes, exotic locations, guy (half-naked) dances with backup dancers while the girl tests the direction of the wind with her scarf. You know, the usual.
Then again, this movie was released in 2002, so I’m willing to let it go.
Vocals and Lyrics
Chupke Se, Chupke Se Raat Ki Chaadar Tale
Chaand Ki Bhi Aahat Na Ho, Baadal Ke Peechhe Chale
Ah, forbidden love!
Gulzar perfectly encapsulates the ‘we against the world’ kind of love in this song. How does he manage to write so beautifully? Every.
The vocals of Sadhana Sargam, Murtuza Khan and Qadir Khan, along with the music of A.R. Rahman, elevate and immortalise Gulzar’s words. Pure symphony!
The overall creative collaboration earns Chupke Se a well-earned place in the list of the best Bollywood sex songs of the last decade.
