Question of a Song.   

Thank you folks for the response to Imran and Genelia. They are absolutely thrilled.

Have a very unusual question for you.

You see we had two more songs in the film, one is the female version of Jaane Tu Mera Kya Hai, Jaane Tu Mera Kya ThaÖ sung by Runa , and the other is the male version of the same song sung by Sukhvinder. Both songs had been shot. In the test screenings we decided to cut out the male version because we felt it stopped the flow of the story. However opinion on the female version was divided. Through all the test screenings and the final edit we were not sure whether to cut that song out or retain it in the film. Sometimes we would remove it, then we would put it back in. A.R., if I remember correctly, wanted it to stay in. We finally decided to complete the final copy (first print) with the song in it. We figured we would see the final film and then take a final call whether to keep it or cut it out.

The music had released by then so the music CDs and cassettes have the songs in it. The music company was strongly in favor of keeping the female version song in the film. As per their feedback the song had become quite popular. Around the 2nd week of June with less than a month left for the release our final copy was finally ready. We saw the film and had a long discussion again about the song. About 40 to 50 people were at that screening, again the opinion was divided. However Abbas, Mansoor and I were of the opinion that we should go without it. We felt it didnít fit in with the rest of the movie. So we cut the song out and what we have released is what we think the movie should be.

Am always curious about such decisions. The movie has been loved so I am assuming we took the right decision. But a number of people have also come up to me and said that they had liked the song in the audio and missed it in the film.

Want your opinion.

Should it have been in the film? Do you think we should add the song into the film now? The song is ready and its easy enough for me to do...

May i begin by saying that i absolutely love the song(s),
especially the male version by Sukhwinder. I am not the expert
here, but I am a little surprised that the production team
considered the female version more desirable or worth
consideration than the male version. Of course, I must rush to
add that this is my very personal opinion. In any case, I , for
one , feel that any version, would have added to the film, though
my personal favourite would still be Jai's version!

i have seen the female version, and heard it :)

its got a lot of emotion in it, in the right quantity. and i
believe that it's already in the theatres.

but the movie has very beautifully used a language throughout
that the youth of india use while they talk. including the songs
in the film. very metro and young :)

this one however, though it conveys all aditi feels, it doesn't
sound like something aditi would say. not like that.


i looooooooooooooved the movie. genelia showed us everything
aditi was feeling. i feel we don't need a song for that :)
