Shivaay song Darkhaast is the second song from Ajay Devgn’s Diwali release. Darkhaast is a romantic ballad sung by Arijit Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan and is picturised on Ajay Devgn and Erika Kaar. The track has a strong melody and is composed by Mithoon. While the first title track focused on the lead character Shivaay and his personality the second track focuses on the romantic love story between Ajay and Erika.
Visually Darkhaast is a brilliant track. Shot beautifully the song has visuals from the icy mountains to the hinterlands as the love story between Ajay and Erika progresses. Ajay has shot the song like it is a love story. There is a track that progresses along with the song. Unlike other romantic songs that are shot like music videos this one looks like it has a proper storyline. (Also read: Revealed! The REAL reason why Ajay Devgn broke his no kissing policy for Shivaay! )
Apart from the stunning visuals the talking point of the song is definitely the lingering kiss between Ajay and Erika. Ajay Devgn has kissed for the first time in his career spanning 25 years for Darkhaast. The kiss doesn’t look forced and goes in sync with the way the track is picturised. Ajay has always portrayed characters with intensity and this one is no different.
For anybody who felt that Shivaay was an action drama this song is proof that there’s a very strong and intrinsic romantic angle that will cater to die-hard romantic. Ajay Devgn and Erika’s romance will take you back to Devgn’s film with wifey Kajol in Pyar Toh Hona Hi Tha. Their mid-air romance will be etched in your mind for quite some time after the song is over.
Darkhaast will quickly climb the music charts because of Arijit and Sunidhi’s singing and the melodious composition of Mithoon.
