SOTW: Pyaar Ki Dastaan

Song: Pyaar Ki Dastaan
Movie: Luck By Chance (2009)
Music Director: Shankar, Ehsaan, Loy
Singer(s): Amit Paul and Mahalakshmi Iyer
Lyrics: Javed Akhtar

To add some different flavor to this series, let’s look at a relatively new song. Pyaar Ki Dastaan is a slow, romantic number from Luck By Chance and is special to my husband because it is sung by Amit Paul. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, Amit Paul was the runner up in Indian Idol 3. He lost to the undeserving Prashant Tamang, but that’s a different story. Javed Akhtar, who was one of the judges on that show, promised to give him a break and he is kept his promise through his movie.

Music is by Shankar, Ehsaan, Loy and the song is sung by Amit Paul and Mahalakshmi Iyer. Amit’s voice shines throughout this song. His voice suits songs like these – soft and melodious. Mahalakhsmi complements Amit so well that they seem to be having some kind of conversation. Lyrics don’t let the song down. I leave you with the video of this song. Enjoy!
