The songs of Half Girlfriend are already becoming chartbusters, be it Baarish, Tu Hi Hai or Phir Bhi Tumko Chahunga. But then you cannot expect anything less from a Mohit Suri movie. – Half Girlfriend song Mere Dil Mein: You just cannot miss Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor’s breezy camaraderie in the movie’s title track
The songs of Half Girlfriend are already becoming chartbusters, be it Baarish, Tu Hi Hai or Phir Bhi Tumko Chahunga. But then you cannot expect anything less from a Mohit Suri movie. The director has acquired the keen sense of good music from his uncle Mahesh Bhatt, and that’s why every movie of his has some really wonderful songs. Be it Zeher (Agar Tum Mil Jao, Woh Lamhe), Kalyug (Jiya Dhadak Dhadak), Woh Lamhe (I love the entire soundtrack to pick up one…fine, Tu Jo Nahin), Awarapan, Murder 2, Raaz 2…oh my, every damn movie of his is filled with great songs with really long shelf lives. So we do expect the same high standards from his latest movie, Half Girlfriend too. The movie stars Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead, and is based on the book by the same name, written by Chetan Bhagat, one of the producers of the movie. Now we got the latest song from the movie, Mere Dil Mein, which… I must say, is quite different!
Why, you ask? Well, while the rest of the songs are deep, serious and sombre, Mere Dil Mein is quite different from them in its liveliness and funkiness, with its playful beats. It’s the title track of the movie, that is composed by Rishi Rich that it sounds like a remixed version of some song, while actually it’s original. Veronica Mehta and Yash Narvekar render it well. However, despite being different from the rest of the album, Mere Dil Mein an enjoyable affair while it lasts. If you have checked out the soundtrack, there is a dialogue version too.
Mere Dil Mein has been shot across various key locations in New York where Arjun and Shraddha turn their swag on. Just look at the jacket that Arjun is wearing. So kitschy! We are going to see the pair dance on the streets of New York. Going by all the signs, the song should come during the end-credits.
