Finally the curtains rise! The video which everyone has been desperately waiting to watch is finally premiered online. Yeh Mera Dil Pyaar Ka Deewana - one song that has ruled for decades together is now coming back to you in an all new pack. In the old Don, we saw the legendary Helen trying to seduce the charismatic Don, Amitabh Bachchan on this track. And now, after 28 years Farhan Akhtar recreated the magic in Don - The Chase Begins. And in his version, Farhan has recreated this masterpiece song in a new style and well we must say he has lived up to the expectations.
So, getting back to the film, this time the beauty seducing the king of the underworld is sizzling Kareena Kapoor. The promo video starts with Kareena poking Shah Rukh's back with her fingers trickily, making him assume that it's a pistol but then starts seducing him, breaking into the song.
The setting too is sleeker with sexy lighting and lavish furnishing. The bamboo plants, pottery and lamp shades give it a Malaysian touch.
Choreographer Farah Khan has given Kareena the steps similar to Helen's in the old video. And well, Kareena does pull it off well with the right moves. The Don, Shah Rukh Khan, is initially annoyed with Kareena trying to lure him but unlike the old Don Amitabh, this one finally melts to her seduction. Keeping in mind the old film, Kareena is definitely setting a trap for Shah Rukh Khan and that can be noticed from her facial expressions of anger at certain points. In fact, at one point she even does the action of strangling his neck. But the Don, though slightly suspicious, gets magnetized to the irresistible beauty and video close with the two romancing on the bed.
