Music composer Achint has recreated the theme song of Scam 1992 as the series completed a year of release on October 9. The Pratik Gandhi starrer’s track is a compilation of scenes from the show and new lyrics.
The song begins by asking who Harshad Mehta is. In Gujarati, the track further explains how 'Lala' is popular in every nook and corner of the city. It further explains how the balance sheet isn't the focus in this game called stock market.
Watch it here:
'Jiya Main Jiya Main Jiya Main Khul Ke,' is the hookline of the new song. This completely talks about the life of Harshad Mehta. He followed the policy of 'Risk Hai Toh Ishq Hai' and thus, was able to live life to the fullest, on his own terms and conditions, after a little manipulation here and there.
Harshad isn't a Robinhood. The track focuses on that, while also adding that it is 'gafle ka game'. Thus the track signifies its title - Scam.
Just how Harshad was proud and confident that no one could unravel his scam, we see a glimpse of Suchitra Dalal, played by Shreya Dhanwanthary. Her presence and persistence in Harshad Mehta's changed the whole game for the stockbroker.
Towards the end, like the series, the song also talks about how Harshad isn't the only one involved in a scam. Every person in the share market does scam in order to control the stocks, is what the series had hinted at. Furthermore, corruption in certain banks was also quite evident through the show.
The beauty of the song is that it shows the transformation of Harshad from being a proud stockbroker to a dejected old man. It also shows how Suchitra took the right steps and even approached him to give the stockbroker an opportunity to give his own word on the case.
Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta story can be streamed on Sony LIV. The show was released in 2020 and has been one of the most-loved Indian series in recent times. The Hansal Mehta directorial also brought Pratik Gandhi to instant spotlight. Currently, the actor has also ventured into Hindi films and will make his debut as a lead with Bhavai, which releases in theatres on October 22.
