They go crazy when they're together, and crazier when apart. #KyunJudaa Out Now! #NeverKissYourBestFriend now streaming. @NakuulMehta @anyasinghofficial @armaanmalik @yashnarvekar92 @saritatanwar2707 @filmykothari @arifkhan09 @sumritshahi @durjoydatta @naina_jhanjee @yukti.anand @the_original_devaaa @niki_walia @riturajksingh @vivekmushran @suchitrapublic @mohit_hiranandani93 @palomamonnappa @adi_chugh
The music video opens with Sumer in a sorry expression. He is alone in his car and wishes Tanie was with beside her. The lyrics catch your ear as it questions the phase of distance that occurs in every relationship. It also soulfully captures the reminiscence of Sumer as he recalls the cheerful times he had spent with Tanie in the past. The memories are so constant that he desperately wants to see her everywhere and in everyone. In a shot, Sumer types a text to Tanie saying, kab tak ladegi?, which translates as how long will you fight? Unable to express his complicated feelings, he deletes the message.
The tone of the song is balladic as it demands answers to unsaid feelings of confusion as to why they are not together. But it also gives out an underlying hope that one day Sumer will meet Tanie and everything will be alright. It makes you realize the value of your partner as well as feel terrible at the loss of a close friend. Probably, this would be the first time a song wrenches and warms your heart at the same time. The music reaches a crescendo of instruments and the video ends with the words “Friends Become Strangers, But The Memories Never Change,” showing Sumer alone on a bench.
