Composer Mithoon is known for churning out soothing and yet heart wrenching melodies, and he lives up to the expectations from him as here he gives us yet another soulful track ‘Phir Bhi Tumko Chaahunga’
Manoj Muntashir has penned very beautiful lyrics and the line ‘Iss Chahat Mein Marr Jaunga, Main Phir Bhi Tumko Chahunga’ will stay with you for a long time.
Talking about the song lyricist Manoj was quoted saying in a leading daily as, “I had written the nazm 16 years ago in Kashmir. At the time, I was writing for the TV show Yatra. I was missing my wife Neelam a lot and wrote it sitting by the Dal Lake. When Mohit told me he wanted it for HALF GIRLFRIEND, I was adamant that it could not be converted into a regular Bollywood song. Mohit told Mithoon to compose the music and it was beautiful. The credit has to go to Mithoon for bringing it to Mohit’s notice.”
The video of the song shows us the budding relationship between Arjun and his ‘Half-Girlfriend’ Shraddha but only to be separated later and the pain they go through because of it.
If you are a fan of Arijit Singh’s voice and Mithoon’s soulful composition then ’Phir Bhi Tumko Chaahunga’ is a must have on your playlist.
