The song is the first Hindi film duet of fan favourites Armaan Malik and Shreya Ghoshal.

When you fall in love with someone, you start dreaming of getting cozy and all 'lovey-dovey' in beautiful locales with your partner, just like a romantic song scene from a movie. That's what the song Mujhe Pyaar Pyaar Hai from Bhoot Police, which released today, is about. The song by Tips Industries Ltd. & 12th Street Entertainment revolves around the idea of love that makes life worth living.
The song opens on a desert land a la Arabian Nights style, against a beautiful overcast sky and the setting sun. Arjun Kapoor ambles up to Yami Gautam, set against an abstract black installation, white flags dotting the sands and a temple-esque bamboo structure, professing his love and pronouncing it out loud through the refrain--
‘Haan Mujhe Pyaar Hai, Tujhi Se Mere Yaar Yaar Hai, Tere Liye Ik Vaari Na, Jeena Hazaar Baar Hai’.
Arjun Kapoor looks dapper in a black pyjama set and blue shrug over a white shirt and black pants. The musical heartthrob of the nation, Armaan Malik tunes into his soft vocals to bring out the dreamy romantic essence. The chorus and mellow strains of the instrumentation sound just right for the song.
From a helicopter shot of providing a bird-eye view of the desert city, the visuals go back to Arjun as he sings his way to Yami, following in her stead from monumental ruins all the way up to a fort with beautiful Mughal-style archways. The mellifluous ballad-style number is filled in by Shreya Ghoshal’s familiar nightingale-ish vocals joining Armaan’s vocals and taking over towards the end, and you just wish there was more of her in the song. Yami etches a pretty sight in flowy dresses in shades of white, pastel shades of red, and blue. And with Shreya Ghoshal’s voice towards the end, she joins Arjun in the declaration of her love for him.

But the picturisation of the song isn’t something you haven’t seen already countless times before in Hindi cinema. But why Mujhe Pyaar Pyaar Hai still works, is largely because it marks the first Hindi film duet of Armaan Malik and Shreya Ghoshal. The two have sung in Kannada, Telegu and Marathi film songs so far like in Katamarayudu’s Emo Emo, Yuvarathnaa’s Aarambame, Mungaru Male 2’s Onte Songu with Swarup Khan, Tarak's Mathadu Nee, The Villain’s Nodivalandava and Kaul Manacha’s Man Manjiri. Malik and Ghoshal have also crooned the song Tum Hi Rehnuma for Tseries Mixtape season 2.
Mujhe Pyaar Pyaar Hai from Pavan Kirpalani’s Bhoot Police is composed by Sachin-Jigar set to the lyrics by Priya Saraiya. It has been billed as the romantic track of the year. Bhoot Police stars Saif Ali Khan, Arjun Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, and Yami Gautam and Javed Jaffry in lead roles.
The horror-comedy is slated for a digital premiere on September 17 on Disney+Hotstar.
