Another song from the upcoming movie, Batti Gul Meter Chalu, has come out. This one is titled Dekhte Dekhte and we can safely assume that this one will draw mixed reactions. Not that the song is not of impressive quality, but it is a remake of a Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan melody. So, you know, the ardent fans of the original are just not going to buy it easily. But, well, if Mere Rashke Qamar and Sanu Ek Pal can work, so can Dekhte Dekhte. The video features the main leads of Batti Gul Meter Chalu, Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor.

In the wake of a tragedy, Shraddha and Shahid grow distant, but the latter can’t stop pining for the latter. The rest of the video is a montage of the couple’s happy times with them working projects together and going on perfect dates. But the reality hits Shahid back, as the song nears the end.

Dekhte Dekhte has been crooned by Atif Aslam and without a doubt, he has done an incredible job. But comparing his voice to Nusrat’s would be a crime. They have very unique, individual vocal textures. Rochak Kohli has recreated the song and has added more techno glitz, making it more upbeat. Manoj Muntashir has re-written the lyrics and has done a good job.

Batti Gul Meter Chalu tells the story of electricity theft in rural India and also stars Shraddha Kapoor, Divyendu Sharma and Yami Gautam. The film is slated to release in September. Talking about the film, Shahid has said, “I don’t think this film isn’t a mainstream film. I think it’s an extremely mainstream film. I think issues don’t make a film non-mainstream. It’s the take on the issue, which makes a film non-mainstream. If this film had some serious title then this film’s tonality would have been different and its reach would have been slightly limited.”
