Darshan Rawal has a trend of releasing monsoon-themed music videos during every rainy season, and he has continued that tradition this year with ‘Hawa Banke.’ This new track has been released along with a music video that’s live now on the Indie Music Label YouTube channel. It has Darshan romancing with Nepalese model Aditi Budhathoki. ‘Hawa Banke’ has been written and composed by Nirmaan, unlike Darshan’s previous song, which was written and composed by himself.
The song itself is as mediocre as it can get. Yet, unsurprisingly, it has managed to climb up the charts, and has racked up more than 4 million views in the span of just one day. The composition gives you the feel of a thousand other songs that have been composed along the same lines. There is zero freshness on offer here in terms of the musical as well as singing styles.
One more thing that has perplexed us is the sudden insertion of Punjabi lyrics in the middle of a song that was being sung in Hindi. That’s because the chorus of this track has been picked from Pakistani singer Hadiqa Kiani’s song, ‘Boohey Barian.’ This track also sounds like it acted as a base for the composition of Nadeem Shravan’s ‘Dil Laga Liya’ from 2002’s Dil Hai Tumhaara.
The music video has been shot in Varanasi, where Darshan Raval works as a guide. When Aditi arrives as a tourist, he instantly gets charmed by her, and shows her around. In the process, he falls in love with her, but has to let her go. In the end however, she comes back for him, having fallen in love with him as well. As simple as that. No nuance needed.
