Salman Khan, Sonam Kapoor take us back to 90s in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo's title track
The opulent title track from Salman Khan-Sooraj Bharjatya's reunion project Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is very reminiscent of the lavish family naach-gaana sequences of the 90s.
Picture this - a grand palace, opulent sets, horse-drawn chariots, actors clad in full traditional regalia, hundred of background dancer, riot of flying colours and flowers.
One might mistake it for a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, but it's actually the title track from Salman Khan-Sooraj Bharjatya's reunion project Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
The song features Sonam Kapoor, looking every bit in character as a princess, clad in a ghagra-choli with ghoongat and Salman Khan in his royal avatar. The couple seem to be in their courtship period are seen bonding through song-and-dance. We see glimpses of other characters like Swara Bhaskar and Neil Nitin Mukesh as well.
The beats and choreography are both traditional overall very reminiscent of the lavish family naach-gaana sequences of previous Salman-Bharjatya ventures Hum Aapke Hain Koun and Hum Saath Saath Hain, albeit in a regal set up. If you thought Prem was the only thing returning, think again, the 90s dance style seems to be returning as well.
The song is sung by Palak Muchhal to the music of Himesh Reshammiya and the lyrics are my Irshad Kamil. It was released on Twitter by Salman Khan with a a profound message that said, "Sab ko prem ratan prapt hona chahiye." (Everyone should be able to obtain the jewel of love).
