Jab Tak Hai Jaan song Challa inspired from Eagle-Eye Cherry’s Save tonight?

The AR Rahman song from Shahrukh Khan’s next is uncannily similar to the popular Swedish musician’s popular number

AR Rahman is one of the most loved and revered Indian music composers in the world. And he is known for his unique compositions and brilliant technique. But this time around it looks like he has decided to take inspiration from the 1997 song Save tonight from the album Desireless, by Eagle Eye Cherry. The song Challa from Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan starring Shahrukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma has uncanny similarities to Save tonight.

The alternative rock number is Swedish musician Eagle-Eye Cherry’s most popular song and is still played in pubs all across India and elsewhere in the world. So it’s not that difficult to discover how Challa sounds a lot like it.

The opening guitar piece is exactly the same as Save tonight, and after that it follows the same acoustic rhythm throughout. We have no doubt that Rabbi has done a good job of bringing a very Indian folk feel to Challa, but we are slightly disappointed with Rahman. Come on Sir, we expect only quintessentially original Rahman music from you!

Check out the video below to see how similar the two songs are…
