Citing examples of the unfortunate endings of love stories like that of Heer-Ranjha and Romeo-J uliet, the song takes off as Ranbir sings: "Heer Toh Badi Sad Hai..aaj kal very mad hai." (Also Read: Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone's Matargashti in First Tamasha Song)
The song beautifully documents how Deepika battles a broken heart and memories of the past to get through life and braves other inevitable consequences of a break-up. However, Deepika beats Ranbir (who narrates Heer's turmoil) with her impeccable expressions that do most of the talking. The song ends on a positive note as Deepika embraces life as it is and finds company in herself.
Composed by Oscar-winning musician A R Rahman, the catchy number is infused with traditional Punjabi beats and perhaps that is why sounds brilliant in Mika Singh's voice.
