Chaaha to bahut na chaahein tujhe – Imtihaan (1994)


Film: Imtihaan (1994)

Music: Anu Malik

Lyrics: Faaiz Anwar

Singers: Kumar Sanu, Bela Sulakhe

An appealing and romantic number that has some really simple but soulful wordsmithing, very effective use of instruments like mandolin, guitar, dholak, flute, santoor, violins and saxophone in the prelude/interludes and has nice packaging overall! The antara starts off in the traditional hindi film song territory given the instrumentation but transitions effectively to support the mukhda. Kumar Sanu and Bela Sulakhe’s vocals fit perfectly and ooze out emotions beautifully. Very hummable…and most importantly tugs at the heartstrings 🎼🎹
