We are taken to their younger days, where Aulakh be more open in showing their affection for his girlfriend. What follows is a display of small misunderstandings between the couple as they unfairly suspect each other of cheating on them.

There are scenes where Monica suspects Aulakh waving to another woman from the balcony, while in another, Aulakh steps in front of Monica so that his friends know that she is his wife.
Coming to the music, it has more of a Punjabi bhangra beat rather than the conventional EDM or rap flavour that is usually associated with Aulakh’s songs. The lyrics are in Punjabi, and it adds the much- needed energy to the song.
